    Leonor Thank you very much. They are both from imagination

    rogerb Dankjewel! I try, still need a lot of practice with fabric, but it's a lot of fun coming up with the outfits, the possibilities are endless.
    Thanks again for the kind words!

    mokomiki Many thanks!

    Chompo Thank you! You are absolutely right! The next Mucha study I make I'll make sure to give watercolors a try. I drew the Geisha underneath the Mucha study so I won't risk it, I can be pretty clumsy.

    Thanks man!

    My57 Thank you. Yeah I see what you mean, I don't usually pay attention to the proportions when I sketch. I will have to do a lot of anatomy studies to get the proportions in my head. Thanks for pointing that out!

    SnobbyOo Thanks, I hope I won't disappoint!

    Enydimon Thank you. Hopefully I'll be studying more of Mucha soon and finish those colors.

    Thanks! What can I say, I like drawing hips I'll keep studying and hopefully I'll see the results too.

    Here's a little update. Face from imagination. I should really draw more..

    lovely sketchbook, your pretty girls are fantastic, and your digital colors are really nice as well. i'd like to see more work with heavier blacks in the pencil sketches, to bring out depth and what have you.

    Either way, keep on drawin'!

    rogerb Thanks for the encouragement!
    AustenFM Thank you very much. Lately I've been trying to use heavier blacks like you suggested, thanks for pointing that out!
    Ebony-chan Thank you
    wanimalI don't don't really understand, but thanks for commenting.
    Verehin Thanks!

    I haven't had a lot of motivation lately,and my drawings really suffer from that, looking at all the crappy drawings on my desk only makes me draw worse...need to clean up asap.

    Here's a b/w portrait from imagination I worked on today, haven't done one of those in a while.
    I was bored and played with it in photoshop.

    It's been a while since I last updated!
    Here's a study I did of Godward John William's " A Classical Beauty".
    I worked on it for 4 days over the the last couple of moths. First I focused on getting the colors right without using the eyedrop too. Later I tried to get the proportions right, it was really difficult... and I didn't really get it right, but I'm content with it. Maybe I'll continue on the clothes some other day, because it looks horrible

    Also two face sketches from imagination I did today.

    I finally decided to stop being lazy today and did some painting!

    I've wanted to color the geisha drawing I posted a while back for quite some time now, but I didn't really have a clear image in mind.
    I gave it a go today and this is what I have so far. I was planning to add vibrant reds and pinks but I kind of like the monotonous color scheme...What do you think? Critique would be much appreciated.

    Also an eye I forgot to post last time. Hopefully I'll be in a drawing mood tomorrow. I really need to do some anatomy studies!

    Wow, Great sketchbook here mate!!!
    You really have a great control of the digital medium, all these busts and portraits are excellent!! As you say yourself B+W is definitely your better medium, however, it won't be long before you get equally skilled at colour, it's certainly looking that way at the moment!!
    Crit-wise on the latest piece, definitely make those eyes clearer, they are the subconcious foal point of any portrait after all. Perhaps more contrast, and maybe bring the fan hand into focus a bit more?

    Keep up the great work, you've inspired me to do some faces!!!

    Strassenpenner08 Thank you, the lady is a WIP, far from finished.
    MacTire Thank you! I hope that doing these colored studies will help, gotto do more of those. I'll definitely work on the eyes, but it's only in the color blocking stage, didn't want to get carried away with the face. I still need to add the darkest darks and lightest lights, that will give it more contrast.Thanks for the crit!
    Ana Diella Thanks for commenting and subscribing!
    Lyno Thank you, I'll try to post more.
    forgeman Thanks man.

    Small update, portrait from imagination.

    Everything here is very pretty, and that might be a problem. When you make every piece with the intent of ending up with these polished results you forgo the whole testing aspect. I think you should try and do something you aren't so adept at.

    That last portrait is quite beautiful, but she has an odd hair hump.

    Gorgeous features though.

    If you have the time, please stop by my sketchbook, Chock Full o'Nuts.
    I would appreciate any advice or critiques.

    hey wow, definitely happend a lot since last time i stopped here... meaby u can remember... this "kitschy" is more like an personal aspect... it dont have to be negative. but what I'm meaning is, its smooth brushes what makes it "kitschy". the last one is also very soft. (dont take this negative). For me it looks more realistic with harder/clearlier shades like in post 67... (sorry for my english btw)

    cheers

    Plenty of amazing Portraits. You really have a handle on that. Maybe do something a little more damaged like torn clothes scars.

    Mischeviouslittleelf Thank you, I see what you mean. It sometimes bothers me, but I don't know..it comes naturally. When I try to do something different if just looks like I tried too hard.. but I'm going to try and go out of my comfort zone. The ideas are there, I just have to put them on paper.
    DKHutcheson Thank you, about the hair hump, I think it was even bigger at first lol. I'll tone in down when I continue on it .
    shumizu Hey, yes I remember searching up the meaning of "kitschy"...The last one is soft because I used the airbrush, I hardly ever use it though, but I thought it would be easier to lighten the cheekbone with the airbrush. Thanks for commenting (don't worry about your English, it's fine)
    DisorientedArt Thank you for the comment and suggestion, there is a character that I'm working on that has a scar, but I haven't really developed her that much. I'll make that one of my next projects.

    With the recent comments in mind I tried to be more loose with the brushstrokes with this portrait. The ear was a real pain..it's not finished but I'm sleepy.

    do you photoshop or painter?
    if photoshop what type of brush setting do you mostly use and how do you apply them?

    I don't have anything to show today just thought I should reply to the comments.
    Muscari Thank you. I have Zhanglu's tutorial, it's great. I can't wait for the next tutorial.
    sessions3x Thanks. I use photoshop. The brush set I use is are from Linda Bergvist. I mostly use the hard round and hard round air brush and sometimes the skin brush for texture.
    Rostas Thank you for the support and encouragement! I'm working on some new portraits will post them soon
    kyubisharingan Thank you! I sometimes use posemaniacs.com for warm ups and another good site for reference is characterdesigns.com. As for books I use Loomis for anatomy studies. There's a tread with a lot of free e-books you could use at http://www.conceptart.org/forums/sho...d.php?t=131117

    Hey really nice work in here, I love the faces! That's something I really need to improve on, especially digitally. What has helped you the most to improve your faces, copying from photo reference, doing anatomy studies, or just drawing lots and lots from your head?

    wow thx for the reply! How do u go about doing your anatomy studies? Do you repeat drawing a body part over and over again? DO you begin with stick figures and build up from there?

    cdejong Thank you! I think what helped me improve is all what you mentioned. Mostly drawing a lot of heads from imagination. Studying Loomis has helped too.
    JParrillaThank you, I will!
    kyubisharingan I usually don't start with stick figures, if I know in my head what it's supposed to look like I'll just draw it. I use guidelines sometimes when I'm not sure how I want it to look. I do repeat drawing a body part over and over again, but for the past years I've been going about it all wrong. If you're going to draw something over and over again, make sure to draw it correctly. Now I have to try to stop my bad habit of drawing mindlessly.
    /\/\use Thank you.

    Small update. Study of my eye. I used a mirror with the light coming from behind. I spend a few hours on it. I'm pretty happy with the colors. I'm just hoping that my next attempt the color won't suck again.
    I'll try to scan and post some sketches tonight.
