Kristina, I've seen your work on GFXartist, I really like the way you capture your colors, all of which have a dreamy feel to it. Glad to see you working on your anatomy. As for the distortion, a solid line foundation in your paintings could help a lot, and also perhaps less attention to detail and more to form. Keep up the good effort!

Farsh, thank you You're right, painting works best only if one has strong drawing skills. I'm working on those, making lots of drawings from life.
(The link to your sketchbook in your sig does not work, by the way)
Recently I bought this book and it is really good stuff. The author (who is an awesome painter) shows the progress of a figure drawing from life and advises to start the drawing by "enveloping" the figure in a simple shape consisting of lines and corners. He says "You'll save time if you learn to do so"; me thinks "o really"?, and tries it. It works quite well. I'll get accustomed to it either way It can only be good to try something.
And the daily digital speedpaint:
Nice stuffs here - keep it up the hair and flower on this last one looks great. For your life drawing - look for shapes in the figure (much like U've done on these last 2) to construct it and combining this with a good knowledge of anatomy will make your life drawings great.
I like your colours a lot too
wonderful colors,I like how you use them,keep em up!
good sb - keep practice.
It is so refreshing to see something other than generic space marines with disfunctional armor on CA. Keep it up!
Hey! Great studies! That book seems really good, i might buy it.
kidult, thanks (no, that sketch doesn't make your ass look fat, seriously)
atlantik, thank you! =)
UnSharpened, thank you!
RC_Koala, thanks a bunch
Flaskpost, that book is really a good investition, especially if you do life drawing! And if not, it'll inspire you to try it. Thanks
This is probably my best finished painting so far, although it's almost a year old. Soon I gotta start making a finished painting, haven't worked on any in about three months.
Title: Death of Salome
Salome - in the Bible - was the daughter of Herodias who asked her to dance in front of the king so she could demand the head of St John the Baptist as a reward - which she did. The severed head of St John was presented to her on a silver plate.
And this is how Salome herself died. According to the legend, she was dancing on ice when the ice broke and she fell into the cold water. Her mother Herodias tried to save her, but all her efforts were vain. The sharp pieces of ice eventually cut Salome’s neck and thus severed her head from her body. So she died just like the prophete whom she had brought to death.
True or not, I found the legend fascinating and painted my own version of it.

Beautiful studies! I like when you choose a palette and you work with the same color spectrum (excuse my bad speaking)!
Clochette, thank you
Yuuki - experiment with low key & low contrast colors. Reference from CosmoGirl magazine used.
Decadence - another experiment with another style.
