    Wow she's so hot that her boobs are glowing! What else can i say that have not been said already, really great designs and good job on making them feel like they belong toghether. One advice I want to give you is to pay more attention to construction when you're painting. Other than that keep up the great work. I'll be checking back soon.

    This latest character rocks the shit out!

    Just gonna throw a little nitpick down, 'coz I don't like licking too much ass.
    I think there's something a little bit off about her left (her left) iron bra cup.
    Maybe it's a little bit too far off to the left, or it's not turned away enough. I'm not really sure.

    This is honestly I think the best sketchbook I've seen on this site. I absolutely loved your article in IFX. I had no idea you were on CA!
    Can I ask you a question about your grayscale to color to final technique? When I start in grayscale I basically render the same if I was working directly in color. Once I add the color overlays I'm always reluctant at best (if I do anything) to add more. I try to get it basically perfect with grayscale. However I've noticed that most artists (You & Bumskee among them) do most of the work after color has been applied. When do you stop your black and white image and go to color? Also once you're done with color how do you know when to do more work?
    Also I have a huge amount of trouble with backgrounds. I can never choose backgrounds that work with my image and I never know when to make things darker or lighter etc. How do you choose your background and how do you know when to add certain tones or colors to it?
    Thanks,
    Jake

    Cole, you are really good man, I really love the work. I heard about your story on Bobby's podcast. I totally feel where you are coming from. I to am trying to improve myself and I am self taught as well. Though I am not as good as you I hope to be where you are at, cause man... Well your art speaks for itself. One question, what is your process for coming up for ideas. Do they just come for you, or do see something and get inspired. Anyway keep up the good work. Never quit.

    first i must say that your latest update is awsome! the second thing i need to ask is more a "curasity" do you have a specific layer for every thing you do for exampel her hair are on one layer until you really are happy with it and then make it to one layer or do you wait with it until the whole painting is finish? i hope you can understand the question i have a little problem with writing with mixing with the pass and the precent well thats all for now and good luck with the finishing thuches on the mage

    Hey everyone! Thank you so much for your crits and advice and compliments.

    I am super glad everyone seems to be liking my style.

    there are a lot of questions to get to, so im just going to post real fast and then start answering them throughout my day lol.

    I just wanted to post some of my anatomy studies and a concept i started on a couple hours ago of a colonial marine.

    Also an update on the Fire Chick, and a pic of some of my usual anatomy studies done at borders with ballpoint pen.

    My anatomy studies are from my head using books more as a ref then just copying exaclty from them. I say this not to be like "i dont need refference haha" i say that because thats why they look like crap, cause I am not really using reff, i also learn faster i find this way. when i used to copy just out of hogarth or what have you, yeah, i can draw that exact forearm in that exact position now, but i wasnt paying attention to what i was supposed to be paying attention to, when you attempt to do your studies from your head, you run into a lot more problems, which is great, cause then you get to ask the right questions to answer them, so once i find that problem, its back to the book and finding out where that muscle tapers or connects or what have you. And i use my studies as a chance to practice my lighting skills as well, kill two birds with one stone. So i try to light each figure that i do a different way and challenge me and make me think, latley i find that a good strong light, followed by a low key bounce, and a rim looks pretty nice for single character concepts.

    Also, i am finding that if i write down the name of the muscle and bone everytime i draw it, it really helps me remember the names and that there is actually a muscle in that spot. I really dont care about the names, but when you know them, you're like....theres 3 muscles in that spot instead of two, or what have you. So i reccomend anyone who has severe ADD like me, to try this method out.

    Anyhoot, i will be posting throughout the day and hope to hear from everyone, and thanks again for the compliments.

    Cheers

    I'm liking that marine! Watch out for his balance though. Right now he's falling to the right. We want more!
