    Now I'm not sure if I'm completely right on this BUT her right leg is in a strange position in relation to her left, i think one or the other needs to be changed. If you keep the left leg the same i think it would be more believable to have the right leg project more out to her right side in a wider stance then behind and out. What you've got going of the armor looks great though.

    Your proportions are very tight. You are really learing to describe the form in a certain way, that just looks right. Good job!

    This last char looks great. lovin the mayan look maybe you can try to put the medalion floating out of the body shape, this could enhance the movement sensation.

    thnx mate .
    Nope they are more organized in this city, they just close a road, tell their opinion and such.In athens things went wilder.
    Everything is useless,both parties useless,whole world doing useless things(like trying to become the most powerful(not to be able to help better,but to harm and control)), i wish each individual could become better human(in objective mode) so i am talking about something utopian, and utopian doesnt mean it cant be done, it probably means that simply the people dont want it, consciusly or unconsciusly.

    Goodnight

    good stuff man, again!

    i see your habit of tackling shapes methodically starting from bigger, simpler shapes first is really helping you, gotta learn something from that.
    If i may suggest, using a bit more reference and research would spice up your visual library and help with the posing too, even just to "feel" the pose.Digi character in the last pose has a great pose in the upper body, but the pose of his legs kinda break the rhythm.Maybe pushing his left leg to recede back and having his right leg forward, pointing slightly to the front would help that-
    In any case, actually posing yourself, even without usign yourself as model, does help to "feel" (using this term again, don't really know how to explain it otherwise) the pose, making the underlying gesture stronger and avoind awkward positions-usually giving a proper meaning to the pose, having the character actually doing something (alone or interacting with other charas) helps making the image more interesting, but i guess that applies to finished works or the illustrative kind more than "descriptive" conceptart, probably.Keep up the hard work!

    dunno why, but i liked more the first pose.. maybe cause of having the feet in a smaller space visually, and being in a more tense pose. now seems to have lost some dinamysm. Is cool cause it happens the same to me, normaly the first attempts are much more fresh.. ya know Anyways is looking very good overall and the rendering is exquisite as always.
    keep up the strong work

    AWSOME gallery dude. Your improvement is great.

    If u dont mind me asking (since these questions have probably been asked..)...

    WHat are some books/site/or mediums you use/used to learn anatomy?

    Do you have a method to learn anatomy (ie. Some people do studies at night, and then when they wake up in the morning etc...how do YOU approach your studies)?

    how do you begin drawing the human body?

    How do you begin your digital paintings? Will you do a step by step of your digital paintings

    Mind sharing any tips on becoming better with drawing and painting?

    Keepin up the good work I see You should do more anatomy studies though. Some studies on foreshortening would definitely help you to push those poses more. Also, from looking at the very last image, I think you could work on making forms more readable. That's way more important than getting in the little details so early. Try thinking about form and value first. Once you get that done you could get into more of the details. Hope that helps

    kickin ass as usual, aye king?

    the colors look a bit desaturated/ over-saturated in some places, I think more attention to chroma is in order

    Krato-thnx mate.I will play with it
    kidult-thanks for encouraging mate
    kyubisharingan-Thanks very much mate.No prob.Well since there are a lot of ways to start learning a subject, you have to the way that fits you better, the way that is less boring to you.Personally for anatomy i simply keep drawing figures and figures and figures and figures from mind in search of ideal construction,placement,proportions and i dont know what else.Also some ref sometimes for adding info to your mind.Now its really simple, just keep observing the human body everyday, and sketch/study it everyday(dunno how, maybe use posemaniacs.com,maybe characterdesigns.com,maybe your body,maybe simply try to built a body with simple masses).All you have to do in the end is study till something start becoming second nature to you.
    When i am home and not doing other assigments, i always study.Now there are periods that i am not very well so i play some games and such.It depends on how fast you wanna improve, the faster you want the more Good studies you have to do.
    I dont have a single approach but recently i am more into the construction of the body by simplifying it to understandable elements like cube,cylinder,sphere
    In digitals i also dont have something stable right now because it depends on what i want to do.So your approach can be different when you want to do a cartoon and something else when you want some realism.I upload some wips but ok i know i have to do something better.This period is full of other things so when i will find time i will probably do something.
    Some anatomy books i liked a lot are: Loomis books( http://fineart.sk/index.php?cat=1 ), bridgeman,vilpu,hogarth and the one called Force (very nice one)
    jackpot_anjr90-Thnx mate.Will try to improve these
    teapo-Thnx very much mate
    Vatsel-naa i dont feel like that right now.Anyway, thanks for the great link.Other than that i havent actually played with colors that much in this previous thumbs.I just threw some colors in other layers.But yeah i have to take care of these things.
    ARRGH!-Thank you very much mate

    ok i am very close to sleep over the tablet,so i will upload and visit sbs tommorow
    thank you all for the great support!!!

    i like post #1797 very loose and effective !

    the colors thumbnail of the warrior dancing around fire is the best in terms of colors.

    your shading style is as always awesome, keep experiencing

    I think i like the 1st pose too because to me the second one gives me the sense of unbalance somehow. Like the legs are not guite stable on the ground. Why not try a more slubby feel of the skin? Maybe it's not finished yet but just a proposition.
