Dang, man, I those sketches in your notebook are awesome. Maybe thats what I need to do, cut myself
off from the internet for a couple of months with a box of pencils and couple pads of loose-leaf
Really digging those environment / perspective thumbnails.
As usual you are a badass with a lovely personality...but this time, I actually have a crit to add...woo:
On this design, her front pair of arms are too short / elbows are too high up. Assuming that both sets of
elbow joint at the same place, that is. I think this looks more 'natural'. Also, no reason not to flesh out
her back pair of hands, get those fingers developed to really give some expression. However I love
the design, love it love love it.
Great stuff man, you are inspiring... LETS ALL KEEP UP!

Pamz1e-Thank you very much mate !!!
Ricardo Robles-Hola Ricardo, muchas gracias amigo!!! I will try to become better,lets both try
p sage-hehehe thank you very much mate!!!thanks for encouraging
MatejaPetkovic-Yo M thanks very much mate !!! keep inspiring
BludHund-Awesome, i really have to offer some great critiques as you do mate!!! You are totally right, my only excuse would be that i rushed it at that points. Thank you very much !!!And sorry for keeping the works to a rough kind of final. Its because when i absorb myself in polishing things, i feel i am loosing in design decisions and speed and that takes me more towards illustration rather than concept art, so i try to evolve both speed and finished look (it will happen if i improve working on the piece as a whole and not getting absorbed in details in a certain place ).
Sapphirelullaby-Thankieees very much!!!! I am glad you like it !!!i will
Biomecha_wolf-Apoluthika man!!!!!! Sorry for stopping. Actually i had a surgery and that is keeping me back.Ante re na teleiwneis kai esu !!!
Ok mates sorry for the lack of updates, but i had done a surgery in a sensible spot before a few days (cyst in the tail area) and its painful even to sit or stand still. Seems like its a place where everything connects. It was actually created mostly because i was giving pain to that spot by working hours and hours in the computer (drawing hardcore hahahahaha). Anywayz enough excuses, i finished army now, i only have freelance work, a master in informatics that i try to get accepted into, and the personal stuff for portfolio !!!!
LETS ALL KEEP UP TO DO WHATEVER WE LOVE TO !!!!!
Thank you all very much for the continuous support!!!
here some speed nooby stuff to excuse my absence
also i have some traditional stuff to scan and post soon. And let my ass be recovered and i will start editing progress-shots of works
Yess! Wish my nooby stuffs were as good as yours
I really like the latest update especially, really good faces and enviro quicky.
Welcome back Kostas!
and of course, keep 'em coming!
great stuff kostas - hope the ass gets better soon too, I bet thats a pain when all you want to do is draw and paint! Maybe a cast study.. or something you can do standing like an oil painting?
Anyway, no crits from me now, but I'll keep an eye out (two eyes) in case something pops to my attention - keep it up!
shockowaffel-Thanks very much mate!!! glad you like the faces
MacTire-heheh thank you very much Conor !!! Well i have to improve my finances so i am trying to figure some stuff out, that makes me being a little absent and absorbed to the non personal works

zou-Yooo comrade thanks very much mate!!!
Ok first you all have to slap me for not offering feedback in your sketchbooks!!! I will make time to stop and offer my critiques, so sorry for that!!!
I havent done lots of personal stuff and thats because(yep always an excuse hahahah)i am kinda absorbed in financial and social stuff. Anywayz the soul keeps asking for art-creation so its inevitable to avoid posting here hahaahah.
To make up for my absence i did some quick stuff and some tutorial thingies.!!!
Thank you all for the amazing support!!! LETS ALL KEEP uuUP!!!
Thanks for the reply and that lighting tutorial (which is very clear and approachable).
It feels a bit nostalgic (in the best possible way, of course) seeing you colossal-updating, sharing tutorials and replying comments like this again
Great sketches as always, I like your colour scheme, it's very traditional looking, and a bit photography-like (like cross-processing). Even right at sketch stage.
Well, you obviously doing good. Just keep 'em coming!
Fetsch-Thanks very much mate . Well probably yes. I am trying to figure out what end result i want
kikindaface-Thank you very much mate !!will keep up
witcrack-heheh thanks very much man!!! Thanks for encouraging, i am glad you like them. I will try to share more stuff
Here did some quick sketching and stuff. Well i always say quick right? it seems that's coming out unconsciously, thats why i do some different approaches all the time, in order to re-check if i can do something specific than random. So by balancing that i hope i can do quick+polished pieces soon. I feel that speed is very important for me, because after i express the inner image i am losing interest quickly.
If anyone wants to play with some of these sketches it would be helpful for me, to see how you would approach it. If you are bored and wanna play with your rendering skills, i would be grateful
Thanks for supporting!!!!! LETS ALL KEEP UP!!!
(i found an old quick image i did for wasted, forgot to upload it back then)
(EDIT: adding one more sketch)

Thanks mate !!!. Well i do some freelance work to help with the finances of the family but, if the "Master in informatics" i am trying to get into doesnt accept me, then i will search for work in a studio/company in UK mostly.
We will see

thanks for supporting !!!!
Amazing work in this book. Its very inspiring. Your creatures and environments are simple but the ideas flow across very heavily.
Pete Hidalgo-Thank you very much Pete !!! Its very encouraging to hear those words
Ok i did a speed creature illustration and recorded it in livestream (thank you fetsch for letting me now that livestream is still free, i thought it had gone non-free)
it shows a random creature illustration from sketch to finish, hope you can all take something from it. Sorry for the quality both of sound and image, but if i try the higher qualities, it slows down the system
Ok thank you all very much for supporting!!! LETS ALL KEEP UP!!!
here the livestream link
