here are watercolors i made a while ago.
the first one is something i've made when i was bored. it took me up to two hours of something like that, including sketching and prepairing.
it were some tomato's out of my grandmothers garden. thats why i cold them "Granny's tomato's" (dutch: "oma's tomaten")
a picture i took from the composition
This is a botlle of vinsanto, a italian spirit.

Hey! Thanks for your comments!
You're off on a good start here. What struck me most are the paintings, especially the wine one. The way you did the glass is pretty nice! Only thing, watch out with using blacks or dark greys for all shadows, if you look closely, you'll see that shadows have their colour too! Black tends to be a little lifeless. Still, more praise to you that you did those in watercolour, a medium that still holds many secrets for me. As for the drawings, on the latest one you have some nice flowy lines going on, and a good sense of volume. I don't think the forehead is particularly large, it's just the placement of the nose, which kind of brings the whole lower part of the face too far out. It's like you view it from two different angles. But don't bother me talking like I know it all, far from it Keep it up!

Thanks for comment on my SB!
You really have some nice stuff here, the last pic had really nice shading! i dont have myself a lot of useful crits, im still a noob in drawing, but I think that some faces are a bit disproportional - You should concentrate on getting proportions right, and then think about shadings. I know that shading can hide many mistakes, but pros know it and they know you are trying to hide mistakes...
But keep it up!

hi, thanks for the comment Haj and Kha (shorting it because you guys have such difficult names) well this image is bigger i think 1.5X the real size. i'm not drawing so big.
i made this well reading your comment Kha. this is a kind of rembrandt style of a dutch golden age hunter. its not so much. 5 min.

hey, those paintings are quite nice.
however, your pencil work tends to be to much of the same tone all over. find a soft pencil that can create a dark black and use it to up the contrast.
Name's Todd. I'd encourage you to check out my sketchbook, but it's full of shit, natch.

Hey bro, nice start. I believe you got potential, you just need to practice a little more. Try to practice some basics like proportion and anatomy, I believe they'll help you a lot, in your portraits. Nice range of studies too.
Keep it up bro!

This http://www.conceptart.org/forums/att...6&d=1219250101 looks actually quite good, but so.. smudged!? It makes the image look so, well, flat, I suppose. (I've got problems with finding the words..)

Hey man, you've got a good start here. I'm not sure what your goals are with your art, so I won't give any too specific advice. Keep doing those life paintings and drawings, its the best way to get a strong grasp on color and value. Your doing a lot of faces, and they're looking pretty good, but they seem to lack proper structure. Check out Loomis' Heads and Hands (easy to find as a .pdf file), there is awesome information in there about head construction. Keep it up and keep drawing dude, try some figure studies too, just to mix it up a bit.
