    Spats: Heh. One can only lurk for so long. Thanks. Lately? Ah, well. Nevermind. You already know. Haha.

    Mydrim: Hey there. Thanks. Indeed, they are truly atrocious. I think if I gave them a little more love it could have developed into something you would be proud of.

    Hmm. You know you're not the first person to tell me that. I've never really taken a strong interest towards Dali, but it wouldn't hurt to check him out again.

    And another rendering study. Photo references were used.

    One trick that might help in your skintones. Instead of using a dark version of a colour where it is in shadow, you can get great contrasts through using coool colours in the shadow. I would explain more but these pics should show you what I mean. The first pick is your original, the second is a paintover I did where I've mixed blue into the shadowed parts.

    Such improvement in one page! You have a great variety of work; the animal studies and portraits are interesting, as well as those knights. 8D

    Would you, by any chance, use 'lock transparent pixels'? For some of these, it sort of looks like it because the subjects sort of stand out a lot from their backgrounds. Also, for this one correct me if I'm wrong, because I don't really have a ref in front of me, but it sort of looks like the arms are a little long or maybe the elbows are too low. Aside, pretty tight stuff~ :] Look forward to more!

    Shalite: Thank you. Actually, I've only used lock transparent pixels once and it was on this piece. For the most part that piece was experimental in learning about layer masking, quick masks, adjustments and I had incidentally included lock transparent pixels at some stage (if I am remembering this correctly). If you're interested, you can view my WIP of this specific piece located here.

    Ah. The main reason for that is due to my bad habit of spending the majority of my time rendering the central figure(s) and then feeling too lazy to complete the rest.

    I agree. Primarily that piece was a study to focus on the neckline and up. However that soon faded as I became bored in the middle of working it. The other half of the image was a mix of reference, speed painting, and partial imagination.

    Aha, so you haven't just been posting on your blog! I saw the name and thought, "Could it be? It is!"

    You've really progressed quite a bit in a short amount of time. Looks like I'll have to keep track of two sites now.

    Abby!: Heh. You've caught me. I usually visit this spot to unload small batches of my work from time to time. However, I do update my blog more often.

    Thanks I'd consider myself more along the lines of the steady tortoise or maybe the dependable, but sluggish snail.

    omg! i love all the fanart! ^^ the chun li one where she's kicking down has the best style IMO with her face. i actually prefer the cartoony style you have going on in the animal studies in the first part.

    i would say if you are doing studies to spend 3/4 of your time making sure the proportions are right. sometimes the jaw or eyes are severely off in your portraits but the rest is really good. not that a study has to really be exact, but you know what i mean...

    also it seems that you might mix lots of greys and blacks into your shadows which greys out all the bright colors you use making your paintings a bit flat.

    however you have some really interesting styles going on, keep it up
