I wonder what we should call these beasts? Lhynos? Rhyons? It's a tough one.

Oh man, is it 2010 already?
I haven't posted to CA in, like, forever. That should change starting right now.
Here are a few in-class life drawings that I did with compressed charcoal from last...

Nice work so far! Your drapery work with conte are very well done.

Alright, here's a quickie paint over.
I changed the colour of the candle to something a bit more neutral since the skull seems to be the intended focal point - correct me if I'm wrong. The purple...

Looking good so far in terms of redux.
As I said to you elsewhere, if you move the nose over to the right a bit, it will help balance the feeling of the skull a bit more.
It'll be nice to see...
Nice work! Other than the head looking slightly out of proportion to the rest of the body, the attention to detail is wicked.
Great work for the first time using sculpey!
Dang, yo. That paint job is seriously awesome.
I really like the figures you've done on your site, I'd love to paint one of the kits you have on offer once I save up the cash!
What is your work...
You have seriously progressed. Lookin' good for sure! The second piece in #184 almost reminds me of a J.S. Sargent.
SketchBook: new stuff!
Oh man, it's been a while since I posted anything. Here's a bunch of quick sketches of tourists from the past few days, and a glimpse at my sketchbook cover work-in-progress done with acrylics...
The storyboard you've done to set up the coffee shop scene is quite well done.
There's something about the backgrounds that's throwing me off, though. They seem quite flat and tend blend in with...
You shouldn't put the title in the middle of the image. It makes the image look cluttered. Enlarge the text about 200%, then pop it at the top or the bottom, and make sure that the art doesn't...

Wow, you've made a lot of strides in your abilities since first starting this thread. Keep it up!
I would say study the chibi style a bit more. See how the artists who do it well stylize the human figure. Some good examples I can think of are:
Ian Mcconvile of Three Panel Soul/Machall as seen...
The only real advice I can give is that you keep in mind what type of light source you're dealing with the whole time you're painting, and what direction it falls on your subject. Sometimes it's easy...
Are you starting with a rough sketch? It might help to *lightly* sketch out the various parts of her face with a harder pencil (like an H or harder) to get a feel for where everything should go.
Not too bad. Were you doing anatomy studies from photos or from life, or a bit of both?
The upper body doesn't look too bad, other than the aforementioned arm-length thing. The one thing that I...
SketchBook: So much for frequent updates, eh? ...
So much for frequent updates, eh?
Unfortunately, the company I work(ed) for decided to lay off my department, so I suddenly went from having no time to draw to having a lot of time to draw while...
Fantastic work! The in progress shots are particularily inspiring, can't wait to see more.
Nice sculpt! Did it get a paint job?
Very nicely done. Seems like something you would find in an unlikely place - for instance, beneath a Denny's or a clinic.
SketchBook: Thanks for the kind words, mate! I draw hands...
Thanks for the kind words, mate!
I draw hands almost constantly, actually - it's almost an obsession, as they're one of the most expressive parts of the body. With that in mind, I think it's...
SketchBook: Thanks for the feedback so far! Been feeling...
Thanks for the feedback so far! Been feeling kinda sick last couple days. I blame my boss/co-workers for coming to work with a cold, so I haven't had a chance to get much done except for this quick...
I would like to add my two cents to this thread, as it would be a shame for it to take a negative turn.
It is clear that you are attempting a stylized look for this, in particular that of anime. I...
I like the idea of the first, but agree that it is a bit busy. I think if you could combine the expression and agressiveness of the bear's pose in the first with the larger stance of the 3rd, that...

I recommend checking out John Howe (one of my favourite artists). He's been in the industry for a very long time, and is classically trained, but has taken up digital art as well. He does a lot of...
