hey mate . just went through the whole of your sketchbook and your improvement is coming in leaps and bounds! Especially colours and your digital painting etc. Its inspiring me as Im lookign to go back to school and brush up on my art.
keep it up!
your versatility is pretty impressive. tons of entirely different characters turned out at a good pace.
one suggestion, consider the ambient light sources more than the direct highlights. atmosphere creates the image, highlights direct the focus. the first girl from your last post shows this thought process at work and executed pretty well. with some of your other recent work, you've highlighted every part of the image and inadvertently flattened it out in the process.
Sourgasm: Thank you very much! A background is mostly an afterthought in my character work, that's why the lighting can be a little flat and inconsistent throughout the image. I recently started to colour my images image with an overlay and from there work from almost monochrome to a more varied colour scheme, which keeps things more consistent and less highlighted all over the place. And I try to keep the shifts in values and contrast a bit more subtle. So yeah, I know where the improvement lies
Joey-B Thaaaaaaank you. I try and do my best
