    Aaah Kostas!
    I got another good critique for the same piece and worked it out based on that. This is excellent information mate, thank you very much!
    Here's how it looks like. I will consider the value overlapping in the next piece for sure.

    I like the title of your sketchbook And your work is really cool! Awesome colours and rendering, suuper awesome. Although sharpness and texture would be a really sweet addition sometimes~ I also like your pencil stuff a lot. Hopefully you'll update soon, you're great and I'd love to see more!

    As time passed by, I almost forgot our precious existence in the current
    universe. Big cracks in the sky, mud filled underground waters, there
    will be no bright future for the slow starters. I don’t know what’s happening
    around your house, but I see that you are not so active here anymore, so
    I only can guess that you are preparing some huge mastermind plan behind
    the curtains, and that you are going to break through once again, as you
    used to do that before. I am very satisfied with your latest alien piece,
    I hope you’ve put that in your portfolio cause it’s really good, and
    you’ve learnt mass of new things probably while under the process.
    Thank you for that revealing explanation in my sketchbook on
    the MMA girl, and taking the time to overpaint, you are a true
    friend who is always willing to help. I will try to update something
    pretty soon, I really miss this place and the old days. So if you
    want, charge your batteries, and join the party, I’ll
    see you on the other side if not somewhere sooner.

    Muddy, Kostas, thanks for dropping by and giving some love.
    LtPlissken: It is good to see you posting here. Yeah, I miss the old days all the people I've had the honour to struggle and learn with. But that can't be helped.
    I've been busy with different things. Here's a fresh start.

    Thanks for looking.

    kingkostas: Thanks for dropping by man. Yeah lighting is hard as hell, but when you get something right it feels so natural. Still gotta experiment like this though, haven't used phototextures in a while.

    Here's a SP. I'll make a dump here sooner or later.
    Thanks for looking.

    You were always good with those space kind SciFi robots and soldiers, like the
    one in the post #712, great armor design, and the texture suits very well. The self
    portrait is looking cool, a special blurry way to display your personality, no sharp
    edges at all, very nice. If I understand you are preparing to share more of your
    work in the near future, so I am eagerly awaiting for that occasion. Thank you
    for the visit and for the sword overpaint in my sketchbook section, reminded
    me the older times when we were much more active around this board.
    Hope you are doing well, and that you’ll stay longer to help me improve
    more, there is a lot awaiting us in the future, lot to learn and to evolve.

    Fallout fan eh? Lol, great work in here, what happened to the earlier pages, would've liked to see your progress from the start. Still clear improvement though. Yours colors remind me of Norman Rockwells' paintings.

    LtPlissken:Thank you. No problem, it's what we're here for, right? Let's keep going.
    palladium: Among other things. Thanks for dropping by and for the kind words.

    Can't remember all the stuff I've worked on over the summer and past few months but here's something. I'll refrain from posting studies.
    The portraits are for a personal project, the rest are doodles.
    Thanks for looking.

    Wow. That was some update! It's good to see you stuff some fantasy pieces in here too. All good quality. I like your SPs esp.
    Your cartoons, while they tell the story quite effectively, but idk, they seem a bit awkward in ... design? I'm not really sure how to put it, but things are slightly off. Mainly the forms. you know you can create the illusion of form, or "3D-ness" in linework, yes? Because I've seen you done it in your more realistic stuffs and your paintings doesn't seem to have those problems, in fact, i'm almost certain they will look better once you paint it over. but.. why is that? (honest question, not being rhetorical)

    anyhow, it's good to see you're trying different stuffs.
    Keep it up, mate
    I'm making mess here: Sketchbook .
    also on dA and tumblr
    Old sketchbook, in case anyone interested.

    You’ve improved tremendously. Period.
    Proportions great, values great, fantastic characters, ideas and originality.
    Every time you show up, massive improvements can be seen.
    On the first three elvenmale and halflingmale paintings you did a fantastic
    job, except one thing if you ask me, and that is that they are looking too dark.
    From my experience (remember I am just self taught), the best looking paintings
    (for me personally), are those where the whole value range is used, please correct
    me if I’m wrong. From 100 percent white to 100 percent black, I mean those
    are looking the most realistic for me. On your elven paintings I got a feeling that
    you are using only like half of the whole equation, like from 100 percent black
    to only 50 percent white/black, and you never touch the brighter whites. This
    simple thing takes away a big deal from your paintings if you ask me.
    On that halfingmaleIII I think that you did a better job, you used whites on
    his eyes and face in much larger amounts, and that’s why that one looks
    the most attractive from the three paintings.
    On the systery_b c haracters you are drawing small heads (remember the 8 head rule),
    otherwise I like the characters and the design.
    Great clean lines on the last Styletest.
    Well that is from me now, you know I make lot of mistakes, may
    give you some wrong advices, but you are an intelligent person, and
    I hope you will get the best out of every reply that you get here.
    Till our next meeting be good, and keep on sharing your awesomeness.

    witcrack: Thank you. I think what I lack is looseness in the cartoon stuff. I've found it's very difficult to try and develop something that both looks aesthetically pleasing and still is something you can redraw over and over again. So things tend to turn a bit flat and lifeless. I'll try and not repeat that in the actual animation process.
    mEgA fLeeCe RaIn: Cheers man.
    LtPlissken: Thank you. The whole dynamism of the value range indeed can be used, but I don't think it's absolutely necessary to portray form effectively, it's all about light afterall. As regards to these portraits, I guess they could do with a bit more oomph like you suggest, I still have a tendency to dull things down when I'm working on stuff on and off for long periods of time. Thanks for the input.

    Here's some creeps from my sketchbook. Thanks for looking.
