    Very interesting art style. I love that you really don't have anything in focus and still retain a good level of detail. The ear kinda bugs me, it's too close to the rest of the face. Kinda like it's growing out of the cheek. The inner corner of the eye needs to be defined a little more as well. Overall, beautiful piece. The lighting and color are superb.

    heres a different approach of the same theme. I used linda bergkvist's master servant as a reference. This is all strictly practice

    hey,
    i like ur work .. very different to mine but still kool
    comparing the first 2 for the colour .. i would have to say the first one is better because they r all soft and not too harsh to the eye and still clearly depicts wat u r trying to show. the red in the second one stands out a little too much.
    but out of all 3 my favourite is the last one and detail is more clear (thats wat i like) and she looks pretty. the hair could be a little more defined (detailed) coz its seems too soft for the rest of the pic.

    other than that .. keep up the good work!!
    looking forward to see some more

    Great skin texture and beautiful figures. The thing that stands out the most is the atmosphere in each painting, though. Even the quick sketches have a good deal of mood. It's also fascinating to see you draw the same subjects (women) in such a rich variety of ways.

    nightblue- thanks, i really appreciate you pointing out something i've been trying to strengthen. I have a weakness for graceful women, i wouldn't be drawing at all if i didn't have such a fascination. at some point i will be working practicing male subjects. just not now =D

    camara- thanks, i guess the reason why i put a censor over her tits is because i had a couple of accounts that were banned because of it mainly myspace & photobucket i guess its because they resemble boobies or something, i don't know =p ...

    heres the full version of it. her bottom half is really thick and i just left it as is.

    Nice SB so far. I don't think that colour is your weakness at all. I love the skin tones or the blurry pieces.
    Love the hand studies (reference is definitely your friend) and most of the blurry type portraits.

    Just keep up the practice from reference and life, and you'll be improving in no time (you've definitely got skills already).

    You have a sense for visual poetry, I enjoy it and I'll wait for more.
    If you want to organize your attached pictures, you can put them inline into your message (using the attachment button once the pictures are uploaded).

    very nice, it looks like Craig Mullins art sometimes, the "tip top" artist in my opinion...

    Sevans- you don't know how much it means to me when someone compliments my colors. even though its not the greatest (or even decent to my standards) i'd like to think that i'm doing good haha

    Leo Ki- AH i get it, *feels stupid* thanks for the comment. i'm glad you brought out the words visual poetry it means a lot to me that i'm on the right track to showing my emotions towards surrealistic imagination. i'll make sure i make more drawings too keep you entertained

    Luconi- Thanks, first time i've heard craig mullins. after reading your comment i checked out his work and that guy is unbelievably good! i guess the reason why i like my work blurry is to:

    - maintain a surreal feeling
    - keep the brain processing by scribbling in the right places
    -also with the right colors, i could make things look pretty believable (but thats something i have yet to succeed in =/

    heres another update. I apologize for the picture quality.

    update: i've noticed the gestures in my drawings are becoming a bit redundant. its either because i'm just staying my comfort zone or i'm just trying to get better by refining over and over again. starting tomorrow i'll be doing some anatomy studies.

    looking good, man. your colors are a lot more vibrant and your sense of anatomy is are improving, but i'm noticing a re-occuring problem with the noses. good stuff, though!

    You have a good sense of volume in your portraits! I like the last black and white one especially.
