    Evergrey's Adventures ^_^ comments and crits are always welcome :D

    Time for an introduction I think.

    Hi, im from sweden! I've recently finished my bachelor's degree in biology, and now I am focusing on a carreer in art. I would like to work with concept art for video games or movies, or as a freelance illustrator. I very much want to improve, so constructive critisism is always much appreciated! =)

    Thanks for stopping by, and may the force be with you! ^^

    The hair besides her face looks better than the bangs, to me. I guess their smoothness is unfit for their jagged bottom. Or maybe I'm rambling The mouth is a little off to one side.
    Hard to say anything else at this stage, but I think it's looking good. Welcome to the site :3

    I think her left shoulder (on the right) needs to be more solid. It will allow the hair to fall back and look more natural. The chin could use some shading to blend it in, although it does look more powerful at the moment.

    Also, does her skin have to be pure white? If it does, darken the blackground to give contrast and strengthen the image.

    Lotet: Waa, thank you, that made my day^^ I did have some problems in finding a dresscolor that both matched her wierd hair and helped keep the picture calm, still not sure if it's good but at least its ok, ill post later


    i found one of my first ps-paintings, this frog, and i remade it a little and replaced the background. Its pose is not very creative i think so i made the bg make up for that so you wouldnt notice (...ehum) I know the whole pic is quite a blurry mess and its leg is totally wrong but ill fix a lot of that later.

    so long!

    i think its pretty decent, the BG is nicely rendered, the frog IS a littel wierd, sp ur right about that =P

    though whats bothering me most is the horison line, which dosnt match the perspective and the frog in the 4ground.

    in short, the horison line is to much up to the top of the pic, but overall its pretty-not-that-actuly-bad (yes, thats a word...now)

    keep it up.

    so heres the final (i hope) version of the girl. anything more and i just might end up transforming her into a vogon or something.

    And also heres a centaur i painted over last night and tonight. i think you could call it a speedie, i sure took my time though. no plans on finishing this one! each time i say i will i just end up getting embarassingly bored of it so better not say things like that.

    the frog's gonna be lost for some time, (same reason as i mentioned) but crits makes sense. thanks! =P

    sup those parts were really as bad as i thought then hehe. below-his-stomach was my major problem since there could naturally not be any centaurus anatomy and im not familiar enough with anatomy stuff to see how it should look if there was. but i'll ignore the centaurus until i get better at the anatomy. glad you think the rest was at least not-that-bad (liking that word)^^

    just a small update today. i think the most overall common crit is the one about anatomy and proportions and me to should definitely spend some time on that. this ones practically just a copy of a proportions pic i found on google (thats great: "dont blame me!" lol), i thought i should start with such copies and studies until basic anatomy is stuck in my head. then i might start paint more out of imagination. big words, ill do my best to try and stick to them, hehe.

    damn, i talk too much, should definitly paint more instead x)

    haha, thats good ur starting to work on anathomy, try getting more mucles onto the bodey too, overexagurate and draw every singel muscle on him, its easier to understand how things work if u understand the mucless, and makes all the other stuff easier too.

    personaly (or well, actuly totaly ripping of Cole Eastbursn teqnice)i think its best to start of with the skeleton, so u get how everything is build on top of that.

    Hello!

    A sketchbook sketch overpainted in ps. I was actually kinda happy with it till i remembered it was resized before i started. now its too small, heh.
    Also, a (bigger) dragon sketch, i think its quite old, but i have made some changes afterwards.

    So long

    Those studies are really nice. Of course, you should avoid the eye dropper in Photoshop to sample from a photo. Choosing colors by eye is hard, but investing the time now will pay massive dividends later. Keep up the work and best of luck!

    Cool anatomy studies. Keep up with these and try to attend life drawing classes so that you can compare with what you have studied.

    cool sketchbook Evergrey, you have some nice anatomy studies keep it up.

    For your latest image you could give it more depth by having the ocean fade off into the distance. Things closest to the camera get the most intense hues/ contrast while the things further from the camera are duller and don't have as much contrast.

    keep up the good work!

    Howie: Oh, youre right. Thanks, ill keep that in mind.
    Lotet: thank you, and i will look the mouth over. really got to make a good one out of this ^^

    OKay, bigger update. got a bit disappointed though, thought i had done even more pics but obviously this was all that was worth showing X) last two are tries at a tarot card design, 1st pic's my doggie ^^ a horsie with too short neck and some pictures drawn from a book. Digital updates might also come soon i think.

    keep it up, keep on doing those studies, especially anatomy (very very important) and just always keep drawing.

    To live is to create, to create is to live. Without art and music, I do not know how I would get by in my day to day life.
