Well, I've finally decided to put one of these bad boys up. Here's the first of my drawings.
This one's my first jab at the paintbrush tools in photoshop (well technically fireworks but same concept). Usually I do my digital painting in Flash but I want to strive for less "cartoony" looking art. There's still plenty of room for improvement but I think I got to the best I could get it through a lot of trail and error.
Any comments and suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I don't mind brutal honesty as long as it's constructive. So yeah critique away. I'm working on some more drawings to add later.

This looks rather good. I don't see why you would even consider me. hehe Maybe you could post something a lot bigger so the shading would be clearer. ^^ I recommend doing life studies. they really help. esp with the hands and feet.
Yeah hands and feet are my biggest weakness. I'll take your advice about the life studies.
Here's my attempt at enviromental concept art. The picture seems to be missing something but otherwise I like how it's turn out.

Clouds are so hard. They seem to stand out when you look at them, but when you take a photo, there's hardly any difference from them and the sky. One way to see this - take a sky photo in photoshop. use the eye dropper tool on the sky, and then on the cloud, it'll hardly change at all - and that's in a good photo, not just some hazy or overexposed, amatuer snapshot. You're like me in that we both have a ton of studying to do. Anatomy, skies, landscapes, etc.
One tip, even at night, the sky isn't an even color. It is darker on one side and lightens to the other. I think night skies are mostly lighter down below and get darker as you look up, especially near a city, but even so in nature. It's because the ground reflects some light.
nice i like it
