Done a really quick painter of some issues with the boat painting. Her closest arm seems to be rather chunky, and I think her shadows are a tad too strong and red to match the surroundings. It's pretty messy and i'm not too well informed on the subject but I made them a tad more blue to match bounce light from the sky/sea. Also, the top of her hands on the rail seem to be lacking in volume (I couldn't do a paint over for that because i suck too much.) http://i.imgur.com/gLI2e.jpg

BHCS: Maann yeah that's been bugging me so much, kinda convinced myself it was just me being weird. Made like 10 editions to this piece since I've called it done, but I think this'll be the last one D: aha thanks!
Been pretty sparse with updates recently. Kinda fallen into a thing at the moment where I have so many things on the go that its kinda hard to update regularly. Still doing 2 hours of anatomy studies in the mornings, and sketching around in pencil to help with figuring out my ideas. That stuff all looks the same, and there doesn't seem like much point in scanning.
Decided I'm gonna illustrate a made-up book, as a vehicle to improve on. Gonna be called 'Storm Brewer' (so gay I know) and its all about flying ships Gonna be doing some character concepts to figure out who everyone is and what they wear (got the protagonist here) and then illustrate all the key moments in the story. Should be fun.
Anyway here's the art
Protagonist for 'Storm Brewer' She's a fairly clean slate character to start with. Supposed to be very ordinary, hence her longing for adventure (which I think we all get around that age.)
And some studies!
Texture experiments, trying to figure out all this stuff is hard!
WOah man. I just flicked between your first and last page and GOD have you improved! A real inspiration, man. Keep it up!
When my daughter was about seven years old, she asked me one day what I did at work. I told her I worked at the college - that my job was to teach people how to draw.
She stared back at me, incredulous, and said, "You mean they forget?"
