    The fur in ur last painting is way to hard-edged!!

    I know that when u look at a cat for instance u see billions of little hard edged hairs but as an artist u've got to bow down to nature and try to synthesize what u see to make it recognizable to the viewer as best as u can!

    Try to paint fur from life or photo and im sure ull learn alot.
    Also, looking at how other artists u like do it, is a very good thing.
    For instance look at how D.Sillustration rendered that teddy bear.


    The paintings from imagination are the result of creativity having fun with the different "files" u have in ur visual library.
    Obviously if ur library is empty, then painting from imagination will hardly be succesful for u.

    You have a good imagination, but your weakness lies your foundations.

    alright demo here it is. first of all, good effort. i forget who said it but it goes something like this, in your life as an artist you'll probably have a thousand bad pieces but the key to becoming a great artist depends on you getting those pieces out of your system. i have lived by this over the past couple of years. esentially it comes to practice, practice like you there's no tomorrow. all this stuff will snap into place and one day you'll be like "damn, i have grown so much as an artist".

    as for a crit, lots of your stuff has potential, but lacks experience and technical ability =more studies and more drawing. when you do studies *don't stop looking at what you drawing*. you can see it the easiest in the painting you did of that girl in the photo. i can see where you weren't looking and where you were. painting in gray scale might help to, it's pretty hard to be focusing on ten things like painting color composition etc etc at once so why not minimize it. and also do some master studies they will help so much with colors. now to leave on a good note, the car study you did is great. lighting is good and the minimalist rendering is very accomplished. gj. later, and i hope this helps.

    It would be foolish to restate what has already been said...so...just keep pushing...things are already looking better...I like the colors that you chose for the graphic work in#35...and the two acrylics are looking good..keep it up

    your work shows A LOT of promise. i can tell you like digging in and working on details. thats always a good thing. however, you need to work more on developing good forms, some of them look awkward. a good way to go: general to particular. in other words, basic forms to super details...without to within.

    the best practice is drawing from life. just keep drawing.

    rock on dude!

    awesome rendering skills with the pencil. You're not afraid to go dark, which is a great thing. :]
    I like that painting of the flowers on the first page, tells me that you have a good eye for color and know how to paint [well!]
    I suggest to keep those anatomy studies up, you're doing great.

    Well I think it depends on which one you would like us to focus on, I would have made the girl darker in your case

    Nice going! definetly improving!

    Have a nice day!
