    keep posting! I watched your SB and yes, you've got potential.

    Choose a idea for a sketch and then... various poses, camera positions, lights environments.. it should help for a good style and a creativity open mind.
    Just my two cents.
    and.. thank you for the comment on my sketchbook.

    Looking good so far.
    I'd suggest working more on your values, and defining light direction more.
    Those life drawings are good. Show us some more of those, and also some still life maybe

    It doesn't cost You much to leave a comment in my sketchbook, and it can help me a lot.

    yet another quickie.

    Thanks for the comments guys.

    anjin : Thanks for the tips. I usually try to do a few things before going to any real finished piece.

    Stolensky : I actually did a pencil portrait last night as well, but I dont have a working scanner at the moment so I cannot show it : \

    Gildorek : I know I need to work on my lighting, my problem is I dont know any good way to practice lighting effects. But I will definitely push forward to get better.

    Thanks again guys

    Well, still life drawings are a good way to practice lighting, I think. I guess you could get a bowl, put some fruits in it , put a lamp near, and paint or draw it. Work from more simple stuff, like an egg or something, to more complicated things, like.. I don't know.. anything with a complicated shape, structure, surface texture, etc.
    And show us your progress of course
    Hope it helps

    Thanks Glidorek, I am going to try to more still life painting.. Well digital painting at lest. My main problem is the place I get time to draw and such is at work ( a gas station) which has flouresent lighting and no way to really change it. But i will see what I can do.

    Heres a quick character thing I did. About 30 minutes

    This is more of a suggestion than a critique, but have you thought about putting the digital painting on hold and focus more on traditonal media? It seems as though you dont have a strong foundation and going digital is not something you should really be attempting at the moment. You have problems with anatomy, values, perspective, structure, etc... Until you get down basics, there isnt really a reason you should dive into digital painting. I would suggest traditoinal media such as pencils, charcoal, and even painting. Not too sure what your goals in art are, but if you are aiming for a illustration or concept artist career, then having that strong foundational knowledge is invaluable to have.

    Did not mean to discourage or anything.

    Thanks for the advice andrew. I use pencil all the time actually, I find i like it more than the tablet most of the time. Ive just been showing you my digital stuff because I dont really have a scanner to scan things with.

    This is another self portrait, I spent a good ammount of time on it. More than i expected. About 2.5 hours here.

    I think the strangest thing in your portraits is that you just put the face.. without neck.. without a background... nothing. It makes the work really alien face put on there... You've got a lot of potenitial, so: why ar you limiting in this way?
