    Nice sb man! You got alot of nice pieces in here and I like the looseness in those strokes. Keep pushing your paintings and the values.

    What program is the pirate in? Painter?

    I really like the lighting and palette. However, I think the construction of his face/skull is a little wonky.

    Hi Noodle

    Sorry not been around for a while, great updates.

    I particularly like #221 (the rocky landscape speed paint) the textures and mood are really catching, inspirational.

    Also like the pirate alot everything is spot on, I do agree with Hai though that his face is a little wonky, I like it though as it's rough and not perfect but I reckon if you make his right ear (on our left) a bit smaller and recede it further back his head would look a bit more rounded and more in proportion. (I don't know if you do this anyway but when I do heads I flip the pic horizontally constantly as it makes it more obvious when somethings out of line, sorry if I'm repeating something you know)

    anyway, keep it up

    Great work on the pirate!! It really shows development and commitment!!
    Though I'm half tempted to believe the shading on his neck could be a bit stronger, as is it is a line that to me severs his head from his neck. Or I could be wrong, it's your painting after all!!
    Keep up the great work!!

    Hi NoodleDoodle, you have some very nice work here.
    Very good digital paintings, with a nice loose style.
    That pirate is looking very cool, though there are still some parts taht look unfinished.
    keep it up.
    cheers

    HOLY FRAK! I haven't been here in a while. What great improvement!

    The speedpaints of the house and the one with the lizard are incredible. Great lighting.

    The pirate rocks, too! My only comment is I wish the head would have been painted a little more loosely to jive with the other parts of the picture.

    Overall, great work dude!

    Very Very nice going.
    Your sense of mood is getting stronger, like in #194 and the gasmasked guy in #200. One thing I noticed earlier is how you used to smudge and blend a little too much in the portraits and faces. But on the pirate you've done some nice accurate brushwork. There's some issues with with head construction perhaps, but you've done a nice job on the painting. Wish I could pick colours like that.
    Arms seem a little short. Either that or the rendering on the clothing is not backing up the foreshortening of those arms.
    The actual pose and context seems tense and dramatic in a way, as if he's hearing something, or about to get ambushed. See if you can back that up in the atmosphere and surroundings. Perhaps darken the foliage or sky, or give it a grainy feel. Add some sweat to his forehead or neck Just ideas. Wonderful piece, and fun to see your work flow.

    Environments are good as usual... :| Like the house. Wonder how you do that.
    Think you're getting better at using textures or custom brushes too. Keep it up!

    I tried to maintain the looseness in the whole picture, but its difficult for me, since ive always painted everything differently than i did then. Thanks a lot!

    Much appreciated, friend I love the critique you give, always so in-depth!

    Ill stop by at your sketchbooks when i come back from a music-festival. Heres just a couple of pencil sketches i did while i was selling some strawberries at the market. Some of them are a bit unfinished. I really feel like improving with them and some rusty old car lying around in a hedgerow. I suck at painting/drawing cars.

    Hay man,

    Liking the update bro, solid portraits- but I agree with zou about the proportions on the 4th head, nothing major tho

    And as always diggin' the evo, you've got a great eye for colour and value!

    Keep em' coming Noodle!

    I realize these are just speedpaints, but I think being a bit more mindful of your edges would take them to the next level.

    good work as always ( we should integrate this line as button next to THANKS)

    but there is a perspective lines (of the top of the cabin) that should lean to the left vp toward horizon lines. It's almost horizontal (perhaps leaning to the right)

    i'm glad it was a good reminder!
    i tend to forget it too, so i try to remind others, trying to remember myself xD

    and about your latest studies...love the car one!
    the bout one has a nice angle, but i can't stop wandering if it couldn't use a bit more space on the left side, and perhaps a bit on the bottom too?

    Ink master! That's awesome, man.

    I'd like to comment on the pencil sketches of the heads. Maybe you could use more broad strokes by using the side of the pencil when you're shading. I just feel that the lines are too harsh. Try to unify the values more. You could also see the white of the paper on where the shading is and that can be distracting.

    Look at these sketches by this guy: http://gorillaartfare.com/2009/07/newish-stuff/

    He does a great job of unifying the values. You could see some smooth transitions of value.

    Later!

    I love how that pirate turned out! Really great.
    Seems like your heads are improving.

    I also like the painterly feel of your digis and of course I like the ink-tree.
    (You have to do more ink stuff!!!!)

    You're on the right track, dude.

    euh yes we like it your tree . Inks are always cool to see . Isn't this very hard to do, because to me, it looks you can't afford to make mistakes.

    Nice portraits. Customer-inspired? Great effort on the reflections on those noses. Details like those really add to the liveliness. You can probably have your lines follow the form more accurately. You seem to always shade "top - right - to - bottom - left". Eye-line too high occasionally maybe? Eyes don't always match up (I'm getting the same problem), guess it comes with practice. Sell more strawberries - these are great!

    Hooded girl - Love the atmosphere, fun style. Somewhat like a faded photograph. Think you lost control of some of the values while adding more detail and rendering. Like the line around the nose is very thick and black. Few flat areas too (top of the hair, neck). Sometimes you can spot these by flipping the canvas, taking some distance, or obscuring the rest of the image with your hands. I like the mouth and cheeks area nice sense of form.

    I'm not into finnish russian doom metal, but I like the boat. And the car which you didn't like. One thing I noticed about clouds today is that even when they are far away, they can be very sharp. Still need to figure clouds out myself, but its just an observation. Perhaps not relevant to these works in particular.
    And wonderful tree.
    Nice!

    love your improvements, the lady with the huge wrench- her legs shows contraposto yet her torso does not have that angle.

    Hey I recognized that girl! hehe

    I think you should ease down on your lights. When I look at the girl my eyes just tend to go to many places particularly where there are strong lights. Try your best to put the viewers attention on the main focal point which I imagine it to be the head in this case. The rest should be secondary. Try keeping your strongest light on the focal point. The other "strong lights" should be subdued.
