A bunch of old sketches : some copies from paintings (live and from artbooks), some life drawings. They are between 2 and 4 years old actually, I'll scan recent stuff later

Old digital paintings
Some digital paintings I made before I knew what speed painting was, and I never heard about Craig Mullins either
I used mainly Pixia as software, while now I switched to Photoshop for digital painting.

Hello and welcome,
your drawings are academical but good , there are some mistakes in proportions
in the first one the middle finger is too small,
the second one is perfect
the forefinger in the third oone is curved too much
on the seventh one the right houlder seems wrongly connected to the body
the other ones are good.
hope it can help you

@ Feil Magnus : thanks so much, I agree with all you said actually. U meant 8th or 6th one, not 7th I guess?

yeah actually the guy hiding his face and throwing seeds.
The speed paintings have a good dark personnality especially the first ones
(although the hand of the drowning man is weird) but i like the concept.
the last three ones are goo dtoo, keep on training on the shadows and lights
and your rose is very cute

awesome start man! I love your studies and later the color illustrations - have a nice composition to them. I think you need to work on defining detail on your illustrations without the use of texture.

@robz: I'm using Photoshop at the moment, though the paintings on the "older" section are made with Pixia. In Photoshop I use default brushes, in Pixia I created my own ones; but I don't use Pixia so often anymore
@GriNGo: Thanks mate! Actually quite a lot of people is saying to me that my paintings are not having an uniform detailing -- some parts are detailed, some parts are not. I'll try working on a more uniform detailing before starting the texture work, thanks for the tip!

Painting over al.chemy thumbnails
It's some days I'm playing with alchemy (discovered on this forum actually) and since it's helping me to learn new facts about speed painting, I'll post here on the sketchbook my first 2 speed paintings based on alchemy thumbnails
First one took kinda 30min, second one kinda double the time. I used photoshop default brushes, except for backgrounds, where I used a splatter brush found on net.
Every critique and advice is welcome as usual! I just started learning speed painting and I joined this forum wishing to learn and get better
Next time I hope to post some scans from my paper sketchbook, see ya!

Animated steps for an al.chemy based painting
A small animation regarding the painting of the last image I posted here, maybe it can be useful to who's learning, like I am I resized it to 70% the size, cos animated gifs of detailed images are quite heavy :
