    i like your use of imagination and creativity, just keep up the good work, a little tip tho, work on your lines, and shades, this will bring out your object and subjects more....

    I find your surrealist drawings very compelling.

    The ear in "experimenting with light" seems kind of pasted on, as though it was a separate piece and stuck to the side of the elf's face to hold the hair back; the earlobe is a bit too prominent, and the "front" of the ear is, too. You'd see the back more clearly, or very little.

    I prefer the original version of the first elf in the second post you made. Her ear seems a bit forward-positioned, as the hairline usually precedes the ear about an inch. It's much more noticable if you block out the lower half of the face, to just the top connection and the hair above. In the new sketch and the colored version, she doesn't look as emotional--I like the anger in the original sketch, and in the new version and colorization, she just looks a little confused, as though she doesn't quite understand something. Her ear is better-positioned, though. Still, I like the original better; she's more lively, and you've spent more time on getting her to look realistic with better shadowing.

    The second elf in your second post seems to be the same elf that starred in "experimenting with light." In the right-hand colored version, her ear looks much more a part of her head than the one visible in "experimenting with light." I like the left-hand colored version of her; she looks like she has some attitude in that one, but her nose seems too curved-in when compared to the other studies you've done of her on the same page.

    Your elf-version self-portrait rolegaming character seems a bit stout, and you need to add fingernails. I feel sorry for your poor character; his fingertips must be bruised all the time.

    I totally know what you mean about the ear, there are so many things wrong with that piece
    Mind you, it was pretty much my first photoshop painting that i actually put effort into
    The one with the white hair and wearing the black, was somewhat a second attempt at experimenting with light, but the version on here is blurry, which is a shame

    And some of me does prefer the sketch of the elf, as opposed to the updated version, but the eyes annoy me so much, the second attempt seems to be a much more "safer" option

    I know he doesn't have fingernails, but it was a sketch ...

    Very awesome start. The main thing I would suggest on the first few colored pictures is to work on your values a bit. I tend to take a colorize layer on top of everything in photoshop/painter and paint it white so I can easily make it visible to check values. Your coloring is looking great, but values are the foundation.

    You have a solid grasp on the figure.
    I would start on 3d space.

    digg the portret, nicely done, though i think the nose wings could use some dark lines next to them to define the more

    I like that portrait, too. Altough you should kill some of that blur in my opinion. It doesn't create any real depth and only seperates hair and face from being united. I guess you were just being lazy with painting it, weren't you? ;P
