    Mmph, loving this sketchbook, great great progress, this is definitely your calling!
    Really dig your monster/ creature designs, the leaper monster is nice and creepy.

    No real crits, just keep on updating!

    Great volume in that self-portrait. By the way, that page took a long time to load. Do you use File>Save for Web in Photoshop? You can make your files much smaller without losing too much quality.

    The colors are really nice...even if they're copies, they're still picked well. Nice heat to them, very warm. Pretty. I can really feel the temperature change between warm and cool. So... maybe you're just really good at maintaining that temperature from the photos. I mean, you didn't let the colors get muddy or neutral or wishy-washy when you painted it. Nice!

    I think it's nice that you spent some time feeling around that last painting, but I'd also like to see just some average everyday practice sketches to keep it all up.

    Great colors on the figures! You should put some of that violet/purple on her skin too (reflect light) like you have done on the second one (with the green light).

    Frank, you just keep putting in work, and it's paying off! I'd like to echo what others have said about your leaps in color and form. One small crit: Your most recent self portraits are getting a little muddy/subdued. Look at those figure paintings of the female figure up at the top of this page, they ooze a sense of light and warmth... they're on the right track!

    Great work my friend!

    Hey man, you've been working hard, I can really see the improvements!
    Your portraits are coming along nicely. The colors are a bit muddy, don't be afraid to add saturated colors in both the shadows and light sides. If you add some oranges, greens magentas, blues it can really make it pop.
    Keep up the great work!

    I've made a promise to myself " I'll be back!" and here i am haha!
    Definitely improving Flei, however i think you could push the darks in the hyena
    piece, like inside it's mouth.

    You major anyways!
