Hilbruks, thank you

Great abstract painting, remains me a lot of William Turner!
Perhaps try to add some dark areas here and there to increase the saturation.
Keep doing anatomy studies!!
Xaya, thank you I'm actually glad you mention William Turner, since he's my favorite artist of all time, and I aimed this piece to look somewhat inspired by him.
The funny thing is that when this painting was shown at a group exhibition in Düsseldorf, someone mentioned that it certainly had to be inspired by the work of my highschool art teacher Jürgen Jansen, which couldn't be further from the truth. His paintings are abstract too, but then, totally different.

Someone on another forum (Pixelbrush) asked how I painted the curls, so here I reconstructed the steps:
No big tricks, just lots of airbrush

hey there, really liking your stuff! Theres a few proportion problems here and there, but who am i to talk, my proportions are all over the place!
I really like how you work with your light, you really play with it and manipulate it to your advantage and its very pleasing to my eye!
Keep up the awesome work
I like the over all feeling you got going on here. Feels like you're very dedicated to this.
But there's something about your faces that makes me wonder. They feel very flat to me. Maybe you should try to paint and draw elderly people? They often have more defined lines and I think that could be good for you.
Beware, it's a crappy Sketchbook.

Death of Giuliano

Santa Maria del Fiore Cathedral, April 26, 1478:
Lorenzo de' Medici, governor of Florence, and his younger brother Giuliano were attending High Mass, unaware of the fact that a conspiracy had been set up with the aim to kill them. Two assassini disguised as monks eventually appeared during Mass, killing Giuliano de' Medici. Lorenzo got wounded but he could escape with the help of his friends.
I know the dagger/sword looks kinda bent, but: I wanted it to be a knife or dagger (or just a very small sword). And I wanted to show the rushed movement by which it is pulled out of the victim (yeah, very gory, I know...) It's supposed to be a short weapon, the lines following it indicating the speed. I messed a little here.

you got some really inspiring color sketches in here.can't critique anything on colors or shading style as it's looking excellent. just keep studying your anatomy as some of the figures seem to have skewed headforms or slightly distorted hands. and some of you figures could use more diversity in their faces. they look too similar, but I can already see improvement.
love "1925" and the last two sketches from life. you should do more of those.
