My newest toy is that Staedtler Mars lead holder. It's one of those tools I can truly say will improve my workflow. Went waaaay too long without it!
Killer work dude! That new painting is awesome! Kinda reminds me of Swamp Thing. Definitely looking forward to more...
They are...if you can afford them and aren't allergic to them :P And no, not kidding, cats seem to love watercolor paint water.
Get a cat! They love to help paint! They'll even drink up all the paint water when you're done :P
Lol at the last line...

If you are genuinely tired and have eye fatigue then you should take a break. But if you consistently find being tired an excuse to quit, you need to learn how to push through that!
Of course you can. You only need to workout for about an hour a day. And being in shape will definitely improve your art productivity.

Wow...Incredible work here! The first one and 4th from the bottom are my favorites, but they are all great.
I am also confused about the proportions. The head seems a bit large and the torso and legs do seem a tad too short.
Take a break. You sound burnt out. Go a few weeks and don't even effing think about art!
I've also had this problem with the hard plastic erasers. I second the kneaded eraser recommendation! I use those most of the time or a faber castell "dust free" eraser.
Can't agree with this. Whether you're painting on acrylic primed cardboard or expensive linen you're still learning. By your mentality he should simply not paint at all until he can afford what the...
Creepy! Checked out your page and I really like your work.
I use a cheap primer called Liquitex Basics acrylic paint ;)
Agreed. Definitely a big improvement. Keep it up!
Not seeing anything...
Why did you post in the critique section if you don't want to be helped?
Why are the distant mountains snow capped and more detailed than the closer mountains and rocks?
Pointless nudity...It's annoying and juvenile.
