    Wow. I'm nearly speechless, but I still try to say a word or two, just to make sure you know how brilliant you are. Dear, your sketchbook is awe-inspiring and totally awesome. I also love the fact, that you do so many things with different mediums.

    And I'm rather curious, how that long-term goal of your is progressing? Any ideas to the game yet? And do you know how to code or do you master 3D-modelling? Quite enviable destination in any case.

    Sadetar woah, that's a big compliment. thanks!! I've set some goals for myself..or at least some direction in which I want to go, and I'm just doing small bits here and there on a daily basis to get there. my goals include keeping myself fit physically and improving myself as a human, and of course artistic goals. I'd like to have a lot of versatility and productivity as an artist and to be able to earn a lot of money doing art...and have tons of fun while doing it.
    I have no idea of coding, so far I've just experimented with click-and-drag systems. I don't even have an idea to a game yet, nor have I learned 3d-modelling. but I'm getting there. I have a direction, and I'm taking baby steps, so sooner or later I HAVE to get to my destination, heheh.
    again, big thanks!


    some hands from yesterday, thought it would be good practice to revise these, and it certainly was.

    edit::: my gallery show will be published in 2 newspapers! I've shared some info about me and the show to a couple of reporters. soon I'll be getting some recognition.

    I really really like your traditional (I'm guessing oil-) paintings! The landscapes, they feel so desolate and lonely. The mood is fantastic!

    Yngling hmm...that's an interesting analysis, I've never actually thought of them in that light. they must have reflected my mood when I was painting them thanks

    I've been away for a week or so, here's a few sketches from the car trip.

    I've been quite busy, or so it does feel like...here are a couple of studies from today. I've got paper stuff too but I don't have the time to upload them :/ I've been studying the torso all day long and I learned a few things...whenever I learn something concrete I write it down so I won't forget it!

    oh yeah, and I've gained about 500 euros from my exhibition...pretty good considering it's my first one, I think. gotta double that next time!

    I should do complete figures with expressive poses much more often! I'm slacking. AND I tend to crop the feet out..gotta change that.

    I really like your ink stuff and the traditional paintings from your show, interesting textures. Nice going wih the studies as well, you seem to be concentrating on gesture more than the fine shapes tho, maybe do a complete render of the torso for example, to really get fine graduations down as well. I know it feels thankless when you could do 5 quicker studies in the same time, but there's really stuff worth learning in there.

    Suncut thanks..so all in all what you're suggesting is that I should make more finished studies? perhaps I'll work on that torso piece a little longer...thanks for the reminder!

    revising some feet...after bridgman. any critique is always welcome!!

    (I'm also recovering from massive hangover..)

    Feet looking good! Yeah, a more finished study occasionally would be good for learning I think, not that I'm saying you should switch to doing only more finished stuff, I think your studies are great.

    I'm gonna have to second SunCut's suggestion. You're at a relatively developed skill level. I feel like someone at your level should be producing more finished pieces to display your experience. Also, think of it as portfolio pieces. Thicken that portfolio a bit!

    As far as your studies are concerned, they look great; especially the hands!

    Also, props on making 500 euros at your first show!

    Suncut, Peetaer...100% AGREED! I'm changing my way of thinking now...I'll never be able to achieve anything in this field if I don't make finished pieces regularly. plus if I just keep making studies, I will only develop the visual language instead of coming up with my own stuff I want to say. and making finished pieces are a way of truly expressing my feelings and beliefs, and shaping my journey as a personal experience. THANK YOU for those posts, made me start to see this issue from a true point of view...
    I'm not completely sure why, but I'm feeling thrilled. I will change my ways for the better...

    I've got a long way to go with this one, but I'm enjoying this...I feel like me!

    I'll move on to color after I'm done with this grayscale version.

    Youve definitely been busy mate! I like your updates, especially the anatomy studies and your figures. Ive got some critique for you this time! On the last one, we can see a strong, hard shadow being cast on the ground, but the highlights on the figure that is casting the shadows are way too weak to suggest a strong lightsource, as the shadow does. As i told you in messenger, some more saturated colors around the figure and on the figure could help it pop out better from the surroundings. Also the cast shadows on the ground should fade away more the farther away they go, coz the lighsource seems to be at very low angle. Id say the shadows should also go more wider towards us. Otherwise its looking great! the figure looks cute and i like the composition a lot! simple but it works! till the next time!

    NoodleDoodle thanks for the great crit! I added some more saturated color to the character and I believe it works great. I also made the cast shadows fade away a little like you said. however I don't agree about what you said about making the cast shadows larger as they approach us...the sun is so far away that you won't get the same effect you'd get indoors, I think. and I refuse to add saturated colors around the character because, in my opinion, the silhouettes and general composition already make the point clear enough..further underlining of these facts within the picture would more or less destroy the idea I was after. but I agree with you 100% about everything else you said!

    I also added some saturated lighting to the poles. can't believe I missed those! lesson learned.

    Sweetie, I like the way your pencil lines flow.

    And that weird bridge you have there in post #190... to me it has the same feeling that Dali's elephants. I have to admit that I am really fond of it.

    And overall it's nice to see that you do more stuff, that looks like you, not only some random studies. Lovely.
