    The improvement in each post is immeasurable... you must have some sort of device to slow down time so you can study more!!! Surely!

    Phenomenal work mate!!

    Dude. This is so awesome, you have really progressed fast and a lot. Your character creation have becomed much better! I especially like the old man one, that looks like something from a fantasy book cover from the golden age. And the plant man is craaazy! Lol I am studying botanic right now so this makes it extra fun, what kind of flowers inspired you on this one? This kinda gives me an idea, creating characters/creatures based on different plants.

    OmertA-haaah nice mate.Thnx very much
    Rushlord-Thnx mate.I used a brush with some texture(mostly with little black and white lines in order to look rough like a pencil or something,but not on full depth),yep there are pencils and some charcoal .These are old and you can find some of them in the first pages of this sketchbook
    AlexTooth-lol Thnx very much mate.Still have a lot of road to go, and i dont want it to stop ever

    Parsakoira-thnx very much parsa
    ALEXANDRE da Vinci-Thnx alexandre
    zou-hehe thnx comrade.Nice, but dont think mine is arranged,you just show the upper part hahaha, everything on the floor ,and my classic "chair ironing" heheheh

    Some truly awesome updates Kostas, those plant people I've seen mixed in are great. I would really like to see some more non-human monster designs like you did on #1444.

    You really are the king, keep it up!

    Nice update King.

    I really like that pencil piece. I have a question actually - I have recently starting to do everything with a wacom tablet, sketching, everything. I see a lot of people doing great pencil sketches, with all that neat little cross hatching etc. So you think it's necessary to do that kind of thing to improve your art? Do you learn much from shading with pencils and stuff that transfers to your digital work? Just wondering as I had half decided to drop traditional entirely for several reasons.

    Nice update megale!Nice rendering on ur pencil sketch^^!
    Alex i think ,and i believe everyone does, that its always good to return to traditional media since thats how ull get more expirience and understanding for art

    hmm well they sorta compete with the body for attention to much, i suppose you could argue thats fine but when you look at a person in life you dont look at there body, you look at there face, thats were the emotion is when you have a body as detailed as yours it removes focus from where it should be. Try doing some pieces where your focus on the face/expression and hand locations v designing clothes and armor.

    Nice updates mate, good to see some enviros - I think they're great for imagining a large space, not sure why, I feel a different part of the brain in action when thinking on such a scale. Oh the pencil sketch was in OpenCanvas! Well that spells the end of traditional for me then lol - I'd love a tutorial on how to draw something like, with the hatching-shading - I've always wanted to shade like that. I think possible plant creature here could have greater hue variation in with all the green, to liven him up a little? He's cool though, I like his kinda elephant face Keep it up dude!

    Great updates, king! Thanks a million for the thumbnail presentation! Gotta try this out.

    And really beautifull environments, and that plant creature is rad! Now do a cactus one.

    AlexTooth-Thnx mate.Here i did a crappy random tutorial, just showing how i approach sometimes the subject.I simply imagine i am drawing with a pencil or something.The size is in 1,0 if it becomes better it looses the sharpness and the fine line of a pencil.I hope this can throw some informations
    Vatsel-Thnx mate.I will try to make more use of them
    LORD M-eheheh thnx mate.I will do
    Braintree-I am sure you can mate.This is in opencanvas(see the crappy example in this youtube video i made).Again no matter what style you use, the basic thing for me is, understanding things in 3d.Thnx
    The Exon-You will mate,and will become better.Simply keep up drawing and studying .THnx very much
    arestocrat-Of course mate, here a quick one(tell me if you want additional info).But dont let it force you.Enjoy experimenting with these systems and you may produce something really nice and show us .Thnx

    ok these for now, thank you all, i am gonna make some spanish homeworks i have and i may update later.See ya mates

    Once again, I love those plant monsters you've been making lately. Environments are also really good too, more like this please!

    Hope your stomach is treating you well.
