    12/20/2012 - Almost a year since last update! NEW WORK ON LAST PAGE!!!

    hey all this is my first post here finally getting my stuff online amongst the great talent on this site. basically i'm trying to work my way into becoming a professional illustrator, i recently got my first tablet and started using photoshop no more than 7 or 8 months ago, and i don't know why i never got into digital sooner. so i'm really just hoping for some feedback and critiques so i can improve my abilities and hopefully get working on more freelance projects. everything here is from the past couple months. so enjoy and please crits are welcome.

    Nice photo-studies. They look really close. Looks almost like you were painting over the photos. If you aren't: take it as a compliment

    thank you very much because none of my paintings are paintovers i don't really believe in doing any art that way, i see paintovers as tracing, and i can't stand tracing. so everything you see here is actually painted from the ground up. in the case of the ref photos i strive for realism on those so i try to get in every detail i can. and especially portraits because those are something i really enjoy doing.

    your adam west/batman portrait rocks... the other portraits are good but they do tend to look a little loompsided, take some time at the beginning to get accurate features/dimensions then the foreshortening won't be such a hassle when you have your layers down and painting... very good stuff tho'.

    nice characters. But you have to work more on rendering different materials. Right now everything looks like it was made out of almost the same thing.

    You have some nice stuff here. I particularly, as a comic fan-girl, love the comic, turtles, and halo stuff. (Go figure.) You have some really nice linework as well.

    Very Nice mate! You have some really nice rendering, almost photo-realistic. The only thing I would say is to be careful not to lose the "life" of the original photo. Sometimes I think its worth it to push a characters pose, or stance a bit to make up for how static it becomes when trying to mimic it exactly.

    Thanks for dropping by my sb, thesadpencil.
    Those photo paintings are sweet. I think as long as you keep this practice, you will learn a lot from it. The only suggestion I could give is that you can observe more about how light reflecting and bouncing, applying that can help vitally to the depth of the painting.

    Keep it up!!!

    It should always be bore in one's mind that he must be responsible for his life........

    yea the depth gets lost in a few places on several of these images. Like batman's face (mouth/ chin is really forward. Like it is cut out on another plane. U should add more color alround-- by that i mean concentrate on warms and cools. Like having cools and warms in the same place but the same value. Only- one will dominate over the other.
    i would say try to make an image in this order and see if it helps

    ur photo ref stuff looks very amazing on the PIRATES and the Halo image btw

    1line drawing
    2values
    3warm cools
    4then color

    unsharpened: thanks a lot and yeah i know exactly what you mean about the depth of the drawings getting lost. and lighting is really something i've only recently began to truly experiment with.

    dwan: yeah i totally agree w/ you on batman's mouth. and your 4-step program I will definitely try out because my use of warms and cools is indeed something i need to work on. and thanks for the compliments on my photo refs.

    egonun: thanks a lot and to answer your question no actually for the photo refs i just paint side by side w/ the painting and the picture. both the pics i was using are hi-res so i can zoom in on both the painting and the picture and get all the details in.
