I dig your works man, really creative.
I think you should use a bit harder brushes on your latest ones, they look kinda blurry. Also I agree with others, do real-life studies, especially animals and bugs/insects since it seems like you like drawing these alien stuff.
Progress on my black, and orange blood sucking terror - latest COW. Trying to start from something that exist for real in the nature just to prevent myself from flaying to much away with imagination (+ i want to use opportunity to do some real animal studies).

Hello there. Thank you for your vote on this weeks COW.
I like the way your Dryad is looking, and would love to see it finished even if it does make the deadline. It is a more unique and grotesque approach not many have the balls for. Moar work and studies dude!!!
A tutor once said to me: "Let your mind go!" and it didn´t come back.
Hi Tsabu, cool stuff you got. I especially like your orange and black blood sucker. I really like how you've shown the translucence of its exoskeleton by painting in some veins and such.
I just have a little critique on two things. I decided to do red lines over top, since I'm better with images than words. I hope that's okay.
Anyways, I tweaked your female elf's lips a little, and adjusted the position of her neck. It's a little too far out.
And the second one is just a suggestion for your dryad. Try out different leg types, and maybe make her feet like tree roots or something.
bbwolf Definitely right that i should work, and study more - i'm planning to start some real life weekend drawing curses soon. In theory i came out from school with artistic profile where i had human figure drawing lessons, but in practice i never really mastered these topic... I think these should also burn me a bit more for work. Working only on tablet, or small sketchbook can make you perceive all artistic process slightly to shallow.
Mellori Big thanks for taking your time in making and posting these two images
Yes! These neck position on elf female was a pain for me. I was seeing that there's something wrong with these neck, but i couldn't figured out what!
Messed these picture a bit because i used to many models references, like 6 or 7...
Still trying to rescue it so these should help a lot!
Dryad suggestion are pretty useful too in current state she looks slightly to stiff, and her foots to much dino, or dragon likes - usually i like these kind of foots, but they doesn't fit to well to dryad concept
Anyway here's same dryad with some colors already - didn't implemented any suggested changes so far because i made these before reading them
