    Hello AsaB

    Good sb, there´s some noticeable progress from page 1 to here. I like how your linework has stepped up, first page sketches had some shaky and thick outlines that had change to become more refined and confident strokes, gestures are looking nice.

    I like the couple picture.
    I think you could add some stronger shadows in the areas that are blocked from light. Another thing is that there´s seem to be a lot of "cool" colors on the characters, a few warms tones could make them pop out more, like on the skintone where light hits with more intensity for example.
    Just a though, i´m not so good with colors so take it with a grain of salt

    Great cloth on those figures, your sketchbook is really nice (could use more art!)

    Moleskines, the sketchbooks have far better paper, but thats not to say that the notebooks are a waste of time! i myself use a sketchbook, (i've filled one and a third so far!)

    Hey. Really nice sketchbook. http://conceptart.org/forums/attachm...1&d=1203604889 - this one is my favourite sketch here. I also like the witch that you have as avatar. Her face expression always make me smile when I look at it .

    In the last painting with the couple the colors seem to be good but you need to push values in few places. Maybe do few black&white thubnails on the side. When you paint on small pic, you need to focus on larger shapes instead of details and there is no fear of making stronger contasts. If it looks right on thumbnail, it will look right full-size.

    Cheers.

    This is a record, I swear. Thank you, thank you, everyone for commenting. It keeps me going

    Sedig - Thanks for the helpful comment I agree absolutely, this is my weakness, seeing the whole. I'll try my best to work on it, hopefully it'll come eventually. I've learned heaps doing this painting!
    hedwordup - Thanks! You've got a point, though, my finished coloured work often loses its fluidity. I'll try to improve on that, thanks again
    algenpfleger - Thanks man! Ooh, I'll push the saturation in the midtones, thanks for the tip!
    TheGnoll - Wow thanks Haha, finally someone mentioned my Godzilla legs! It's true, they're my weakness. Reminds me to do some anatomy studies!
    hurricane - Thanks so much for checking in! Really glad you liked the witch, thanks again!
    Glory666 - That's very nice of you, thanks a lot! Always nice to hear that I'm improving, I really hope so.
    Chate Noire - Thanks for stopping by and for the kind words, means a lot
    Sebastianrenaissance - Thanks man
    trout - Thank you for the comment, glad to hear it. Thanks for the line variety tip, I remembered it when I did my newest inking!
    mya - Aw, thanks! I'm so glad people are liking the figures, they're so darn hard.
    ~Faust~ - Thanks, fellow sketchie, for the excellent advise! I both darkened the BG and pushed the values even more. I hope this is better. I'm afraid I saw your comment about the horizontal lines in the middle too late, but I'm throwing this up now and if everyone hates that, I'll fix them.
    DanielC - Hey, thanks so much! I definitely need to do more of life drawings, thanks for the reminder
    sketcheth - Thanks! That's a new, you like my faces? I always think I need more practice in them, but I'm glad someone's liking them, I love drawing faces! And yes, what can I say, I've got endless patience when inking, I love it.
    Ash888 - Thanks for checking in! I agree (and others!) on the mouth, so I fixed it in this update, hopefully it's somewhat better.
    kelly x - Hey girl, thanks for the comments! Haha, you rock too, you know that and thanks for the invitation! I have to get myself a skull, apparently, seems like great practice. Iceland's doing good, although the weather might improve bits. As usual.
    Trashy - Thanks a lot I pushed them values somewhat, hopefully it looks better. Glad you liked the tattoos!
    Hyptosis - Aw, thank you, that's really nice
    Malakai SinClair - Hey Mal, fellow sketchie! Thanks for the awfully nice comment, I'm flattered! Haha, you shouldn't be intimidated by me, I'll try to be nice I'm glad you liked my lines, they're so darn hard. If you feel like I can teach you something about them, just drop me a line (pun definitely intended!).
    MnM - Hi, sketchie, thanks for that! Glad you liked the cartoons
    SanXavier - Thanks a lot, man! That's great to hear.
    MonkeYoakum - Thank you! I agree greatly, the lines on her arms don't quite work as well. Typical, I put so much work into those few lines!
    Renegade89 - Thanks, fellow SSBer Great advise! I'll do that, your point seems very valid. I need all the help I can get regarding colour!
    PlasmaErnst - Another SSBer! Thanks so much, man, I'm so surprised people comment so much on my linework, but I sure am flattered.
    J.Boswell - And the final fellow sketchie! Thanks man! I agree that I definitely need to churn out some more art Thanks for the Moleskine advise too, I'll get myself a proper sketchbook next time.
    sjuskadur - Takk, takk! It's amazing how this one piece has taught me much about digital painting. I highly recommend it! Thanks for stopping by!
    Farvus - Hey man, wow, thanks for commenting That sketch you linked is actually a failed SP, although the actual drawing maybe ain't so bad. Really glad to hear the little witch puts a smile on your face
    Great advise about the BW thumbnails. Seems like a very logical thing to do, I'm gonna try that!
    remmy - Wow, thanks! Glad the tattoos are liked

    Wow. Again, thanks so much everyone for dropping me a line. It means a lot to me that people appreciate my work.

    I joined a terribly friendly and talented SSB recently, so I hope that'll keep my pencil going faster than usual! But I'm afraid I don't have a huge update now. I've been kinda busy because I'm switching rooms here at home (finally, after 14 years in this little one), so that's been stealing some time.
    But here's at least something for you all to chew on

    An SP. I look like a 30 year old latino girl :/ (So far from the truth, I'm a pale blonde)

    And of course some more progress on my dear painting! I think I'm getting pretty done with the girl. Pushed some values, darkened the BG, redid her hair etc. What do you nice people think?

    And last but not the least, this is something I did just last night. I was awake until 4 am, actually, but I just couldn't stop, it was so much fun! This is a request by a friend. She gave me a detailed description about her mermaid and I finally got this out. It's hard to do creepy things for me! Well, at least I hope she comes off as fairly creepy, she ain't a nice mermaid like Ariel.

    I meant to make her all realistic painterly like my painting above, but honestly? I don't think I have the stamina. The other one takes so much time and sweat and blood that I think I need a break from that and pull out some studies before I take on another big painting. So I'm thinking of cel-shading it, but I'll try to keep it tall moody and dim instead of a frame from a happy cartoon.

    She'll be all covered in scales, still now sure how to achieve that purely with colours. I tried inking it but it just came out messy. Brainstorming now.

    But yes. Any comments on the ink would be awesome before I start the colouring

    Oooooooh what's this? You? Updating? A joke I say


    That selfportrait is so damn pretty. I love the looseness of your pencil strokes. Kinda makes me wonder where this looseness is when you work digitally? Free yourself! About your painting, when are you planning to start going over the outlines? Or do you intend to leave them in there? D:

    That mermaid blows my mind. Hey you know what? The reason you think that painting it would cost a lot of stamina is that you are not painting, but coloring. Why don't you try going over the outlines from the very beginning, or staying beneath them just in the first phase? That would make things a whole lot easier. I think you should spend some time painting directly in shapes, without any lines. Maybe from life or reference if you want, but you should definitely do it to lossen up a little

    And please update more often my dear!

    Do what Hannes said. Especially the updating

    The ink is beautiful, really. Very envious here, your Lineweight is phenomenal, I guess drawing cartoon-characters all day long does somehow pay
    Some minor crits on here anatomy, though (I know, I'm a prick), the ribcage looks weird, not quite sure wether that's supposed to be muscles or bones, in anycase it bends outside in a very strange way. You might want to go into that. Minor things with the arm in the back, the bulk under her shoulder is not human. Also her Buttocks look a little flat after you twisted around the whole rest of the body. You might want to define this area more.
    Her face is gorgeous.

    hey dude.

    about the hair, just watch out that you remember the 3d-ness of it. meaning, it comes from her head all the way over her far shoulder. if that's what you want, you can do that; i would suggest (when you paint it) bringing some of it more towards the viewer from behind the shoulder. just a thought. maybe make her butt bigger, and give more volume down to the "knees". g'luck dude, and like algen said, do more painting; itll help.

    -A

    more than (but i'm getting there)

    I'm fascinated with how well you draw the human figure -- especially women! You'd think by being a girl, I'd at least have that down, but no... :3
    Your crisp linearts are something to be proud of. They're so clean. And so are your digital works! That last one with the couple, the colors are nicely chosen. The skin tones have a nice, more neutral and saturated tone to them. :3 I like. And the work on the clothing themselves? Just -- ah. I like a lot. :3

    Can't wait for more!

    Hey AsaB! Thanks a bunch for visiting my SB, thought of coming here to return the favor

    You have some great stuff in here, I love the speedie in post #55, and the SP in #190 looks awesome, it would look great colored.

    Only crit I have is about the mermaid - her face looks a bit narrow on the side - maybe giving her a bit longer jawbone would help, and her skull seems a bit small compared the size of the face - maybe some volume in the back part of the head would help (so you don't have to change the face which looks great).
    Also, the arm closer to us seems like it's not attached to a shoulderblade, but that might be just me since it's kinda late over here...

    Everything else looks great, keep up the good work

    Cheers!

    Hey, AsaB!
    Just wanted to say, "Thank you!" for the link to those Loomis pages. I just started using them, and they're a real help! I'm going to do some anatomy studies from that PoseManiac website you gave me, too.
    Can't wait for an update on your stuff!

    I really like your style and from the first page to the last im seeing improvement. the only thing id suggest is that in your gesture drawings the seems to be some what a distortion and kind of a nice curvieness to your lines and in some of your more finle pieces im seeing kind of a square jaw and squarish completion, id sugguest bringing some of the distortion and curvieness to your pieces and i think it would turn out even more amazing

    Fantastic sketchbook. I really like your most recent line work. The color in the pair above the mermaid is really beautiful. My only crit is that something appears slightly off in the males eyes. I can't quite put a finger on it but it seems as though the eyebrows don't match each other or the eyes. One has an open arc and the other seems more angled downward which works if reflected properly in the eye. Then again, I could be wrong...just what I see. Anyway beautiful stuff, I'd love to see that mermaid in color!
