woha - great update! mmh, some comments on the single pieces:
- the inside of the pepper looks very detailed and pepper-y! the stick looks weaker and i don't think your framing is very fortunate.
- the embroidery is just soo cool!
- the selfportait's hands look good but the face lacks structure
- the watercolour leaves are amazing! dunno, perhaps the purple background is a bit much
- the grasshoppers are pretty amazing too, i'd never ever have the patience to shade something like this!
Katinki thanks looking back on some of these their are some things i would change and the stuff your mentioning is definatly along those lines but thats just something about learing and now that iv made those mistakes i will try to not doo em again the face is probably the weakest part of that composition though YUCK.. and although the embroirie turned out nice it was like hell on the delicate artisie fingures and trying to do 12 hours of drawing the next few days after it felt horrible. thanks
ok now for that update iv been promising some hands and some doodles i dont think i doodle enough because im always stressed but little doodles like these really is relaxing and fun. so here it is

hey - good to see you keeping at the hands! getting better and better! this time it looks like you imagined them as tubes which is great for getting the basic shape and volume. but don't forget about the bones beneath.
and the comoc-y technical thingies are cool, too!
Good job on the studies. The hands are coming along, nice to see them from so many angles. As Kat said, try to keep anatomy in mind; may help a bit on tricky poses. The noses are coming along well, but the lips seem a little overly simplified. The second one is really good, but the last two or three rub me.
I like the robot, it's funny.
And nice studies! Your hand drawing are most certainly become better and better....
and the lips were good too, albeit some were looked really seductive..maybe that's your intention?
Thanks sketch group ill just leave a general reply for all now the lips were supposed to be kind of seductive in way i really lack the skill to render pretty women so i should probably try to study that a bit more which is waht the lips were for and the robots were just for a little fun doin too much for skool gets yah depressed and u got to blow off a little steam
heres a portrit sorts working on digi painting in graphic desigin Yha!!!
so were supposed to paint our selfs as super hereos or any thing of the like so i chose Gambit because well because hese BA
Is the portrait on-going? It doesn't seem very finished. Right now, the thing that jumps out is the nose; it seems a bit sharp and large along the bridge to the tip. I think it's because of the highlight. But I do like the introspective pose. I hope you keep at it.
hey - great to see you working again! same question as asatira - is he finished or a wip? anyway, i'd suggest to try to refine the basic forms with a few values more before jumping into rendering and details. keep it up, don't let school get you down!
Asatira: yah its still gettin worked on its really the first B/w that iv really suceeded at and am happy with. thanks for the info
Katinki lol i never stopped working but i know what u mean sorry for the absense just a lot to get done to keep the grades up on the home stretch for college. mostly have been working on regular no digital pieces have 6 more from the last 3 weekes to add just waiting till i can get a camera from school to doc them SLRs rule but are sadely to expensive for me
im not sure about the crack down the face and i was thinking about putting rogues dead body in the background im not sure on top a pile of cards o well i turned this one in for a grade but i think ill still keep working it out till i fininsh

What is up with the crack? It looks like the kind of crack you'd seen in something hard, like rock. If you're going for more of a scar or cut, maybe look at photo refs of wounds, or similar result, theatrical make-up. The jacket is coming along well. As for putting in a dead Rogue, I would advise against it. This is supposed to be a portrait of you as the character Gambit.
much better! i'm not familiar with the character of gamit thsu i can't comment on that... but i'd say spend some more time on the nose and perhaps try out different alternatives for the crack like asatira said.
Yo dude. A lot of improvement since I last checked in. Your later more traditional works are looking great. I especially like your self-portrait with the pop heads, there's something psychedelic about it and I really like the colours you used to render it.
Cool fucking mask!!! That's really rad. Haven't seen anybody do masks on here yet. Very cool stuff.
Though you have been doing more anatomy studies, you definitely need to be doing more and more and more. Your digital painting can also use more time. Try painting "slower", try to be more careful, be a little more patient and spend lots of time on it. If a painting has to take up to month for you to think its perfect then you do it! Art is art man, sometimes shit takes long, sometimes not.
