    Nice gollum :p

    Like your studies of the old paintings. Looks nice. Some of your own stuff looks a little lifeless and flat though. Add some more life and shadows, and remember the basic rules of cones, balls and cylinders when it comes to the human body

    Thanks LEVIATHIN816 yeah hands are tough but i'm on it

    this weeks Chow

    Twilight isn't upon the land
    Dusk falls into his hand
    Cats and children play
    Casually chasing the remains of the day
    A whisper on a shadowy breeze
    Look to him and your heart is sure to freeze
    The Apple Gatherer comes for you

    Youve got a good grasp of design and colour in these, but the digis are getting quite muddy in your blending. I think its primarily cause youre using brushes that are way too small, and making an uneccessarily scratchy blended look. Always try and use the biggest brush possible to define a plane or blend, why render something with 50 brushstrokes when you can do it more effectively with 5?
    Other than that cg issue, youre on the right track!

    Nice progress. There are some problems with perspective in your last works, the girl and the room dont quite match in perspective, the hamsters dont match with their surroundings either, try doing some excersizes with perspective placing boxes, cilinders and spheres in different sizes, positions and angles. Perspective is really well explained in loomis books, if you care to look. Some things look kind of flat too, some faces of the hamsters for example, and the room in wich the girl is in, the two walls should have some differentiation in value, and not have so much contrast in them. Keep up the good work!.
