    there's something wrong with her thighs (too short?).
    I think you should take another look at those knees as well, and her left foot should be longer.
    just trying to help

    You. are riding strong! don't let anything stop you now, reasons:

    -Your character drawing improvement show you have potential to master drawing human anatomy with hard work

    -enviroment sketches are interesting allready in this point, imagine where they will be in one year as completely enviroments

    good work, i demand more because you are worth it

    Nettle_Mountain: thanks man!! your post was truly motivating!
    you wont believe how much it means to me that "Im worth it"!
    I really owe you much by now already!! Someday I`ll pay off that debt…
    thank you buddy!

    recently I had a hard time with school and my drawing-rhythm was bad…basically because I started to use school as an excuse for not drawing…
    Now, I gotta get back on trax as soon as possible; cant wait for x-mas!!!!

    this is what I can come up with for challenge 5 (is it?), topic: creatures…
    now Its only the effort of this afternoon…but I had an entirely wrong approach on this one…and colors are…wrong…∞

    although I think I know the general Issue, Id appreciate very much your wisdom and "eagle-eye-critique"

    ( I think this count for tropical…)

    thanks!!

    I don't know anything about colour, but that creature looks pretty good to me. Maybe the colours are a bit too saturated? And it also reminded me I need to do a creature quickly I wanted to tell you that you were slacking a bit, but I didn't want to push you. Glad you're back

    SamC: pushing Is not a bad thing!! Sometimes we need support! even if its only asskicking…It gets you usually back to work!!


    a doodle…tried to illustrate my headache anyway, still WIP., though eaten already few hours. Im a slow worker today…but I work!

    anyway…the last 2 img taught me that I know shit about color… !!!peer project!!?!?!
    planning to build some Greece-temple-ruins into background

    NOTE: Its showing some very dark values which I dont got in PS…hate that effect!!

    This latest one looks great apart from the orange. The saturation and value don't change, but I'm pretty sure you were going to get around to fixing that anyways Also wheres the light source?

    Keep pushing, your work always inspires me to be better

    I guess you can still use some practice with values and saturation levels, but these critters are a pretty good start with colour. Maybe work out something in monochromes before you start colourizing? Kudos on the perspective sketches btw.

    nice.
    one thing with the robot lady.
    i think, so it doesnt matter at all , that u use to much hard lines. it makes it so 2d. and look at the shadows.

    thanks for dropping by.

    good sense of perspective here. i miss the same sense of depth in your figures/characters. By that I mean they tend to look a bit flat? Try do a lot of form studies with various light sources. could work

    Peer projects sound good, should do it myself as well... look walnut's thread for selective colour and colour balance tools info, might be useful with colour

    I find your space-ship design really good !! Just be careful with perspective, one of symmetrical thing ( don't know how i can call it ) is shorter than the other !!

    For yout octopus ! Try to think more in light, and in texture, it will help you to have better volumes !

    Keep it up

    Really digging the enviros and spaceship, what kind of markers are you using for them?

    for your headache piece i think you need to think a little bit more carefully about the light, the light on his back seems to conflict with the highlight on the octopi

    and as for lack of motivation, im gonna stick a rocket up yo ass if you dont keep updating!

    Man environments have always been your strong point, and that's great (what markers are you using?) but if you're going to nail anatomy you're going to have leave your comfort zone for a few weeks.

    That's why I enjoy our challenges, it always ends up shining lights on my weak points, and this time it's the damned perspective So if I do perspective drawings all week, and you do anatomy all week, We'll both be very happy

    The octopus is really good, but yeah the light source, find it and stick with it

    And for motivation: there is no such thing as a failure, only lessons learnt. Sounds corny, but whenever you feel you've failed, try and think about why, and how you would improve. And we both have so much growing room, in a years time, WE WILL BE AMAZING!
