I don't totally get the pixelly digital stuff. What programm do you use?
What I do get and like are the many studies. Loomis is great and posemaniacs seems to be helping you improve. Keep doing that and you'll get better and better.
Concerning the software, I'm using Artweaver, a free tool. The thing is, Artweaver's best tool is this pencil/charcoal simulation which I'm using, it's very soft and good for gradients, but it looks pixelly. I don't think I want to change this for now, but by the end of march March I am planning to buy a Wacom Bamboo fun which contintues a version of Photoshop and of Artweaver, and this should do tool-wise.
Here's an older work re-worked, but I don't seem to get the face really beautiful/female, especially because of the lips, I guess.
thanks for your comment! Yes, the one on post 58 needs some rework; on her "own thread" (http://www.conceptart.org/forums/sho....php?t=146830), visual-banality helped me with pulling over a grid over my pic and the ref pic, and this revelead some anatomy problems which give the picture the "not quite right"-feeling.
Here's some more work on the last one, and a new one. I must say I am happy with the last girl, I did the sketch rather quickly (after the torso study) and it looks more "clear cut" than my other stuff I think.
