    Great stuff, especially the Transformer. As for actual criticism, I have nothing to say.

    Been working on this one for a few days. Dealing with the background's been a pain. I wanted to close the circle of guys surrounding them, but every attempt looked awful.

    Your ambition and image ideas are working out nicely. You're trying to tackle more complicated images rather than having the guy standing like a log syndrome and that's to be applauded.

    I think you could work on your anatomy (as often as it's said, it's true). You've got some really awkward figures in there. Shoot some refs and paint with those.... just really quick ones... it helps so much.

    Quigleyer: Thanks! I'll work harder on the anatomy especially, still trying to nail that.

    Here's a quick character sheet that my brother asked for. I'm still having a bit of trouble getting materials right.

    I really like the look of the Empire cityscape. I really hope you keep it up and expand on the the concept. I think the gentleman holding his eye open on the top is really well done it conveys emotion with little action very well. Good stuff so far I really hope you keep it up

    you've got some good things going with your digital skill but I'll agree with the above statement that your anatomy etc needs more attention. It looks like you just need to be more patient with your line art, which many of us are guilty of.

    keep it up!

    Character concept for an emperor. Same guy as the statue in the city piece farther up. I need to do more drapery studies, I know...

    Decided to do my own take on the Hindu God, Shiva. Realized way too late that his torso is turned in a completely weird direction if he's walking towards us. This is why I need to flip the image early instead of at the end.

    Hey Chagan, youve got some nice stuff here. You seem to have a good amount of ability with whatever program you are using. However, your proportions seem to be off on most of your drawings. my suggestion would be to do some studies so you can really nail your proportions.

    Still your work is good. Keep it up!

    I'm with Newman in terms of proportion, in addition I would recommend to watch your contrast-values (one thing I'm also handling too cautiously); go for darker darks and lighter lights and when you do so, fix your lightsource in the beginning. Cool moods though, keep it up!

    No skill still isn't a new side.

    Newman and regenschirm, thanks for the comments! Still working on anatomy and proportion, got my big book of Bridgman handy . I'll keep the value advice in mind.

    Here's some quick forearm stuff, copied from this month's Imagine FX.

    Random concept art for a cyborg. Tried to get a better grip on painting metal surfaces for the armor and quick implied detail for the gun.

    hey dude , i can see progress in your sketchbook, good stuff, but just be careful with ur anatomy. it seems to be a major problem for you now , if you can tackle that down, it be aesthetically more pleasing for your pieces,

    hope the holidays been great, take care : )

    Concept art for a Neverwinter Nights 2 module my brother's working on. First the study then the actual painting. The final is an edit of the same piece in my last post- I've done some work on the kneeling guy's anatomy, especially on the back, and warmed the color palette on him to make him fit better into the setting.

    Edit: Added some more light to the guy's back based on Man Made God's tip, thanks!

    Nice, loads of cool ideas here. Your pencils and digitals seem pretty balanced quality wise, looking good. The anatomy is noticeably off on some of the older stuff, looks like you didn't have references, but your finished paintings are all pretty solid. The new one is looking nice and dramatic, but I think the skin may be too purple-ish, I'm not sure. It really depends on how blue your sky or secondary light source is going to be. The guy's back shouldn't be so dark though, there are flames right next to it.

    Kinda rambled, but yeah, keep it up. Looking really good so far!

    Man Made God: Thanks for the tips, I tried fixing the lighting on the guy's back. As for anatomy, I'm working on Loomis as we speak .

    I have begun drawing from Loomis! Pardons for the feathery lines.. still trying to work on that long, confident stroke thing, especially with the wacom. Really need to put in that felt tip on the pen.

    I'm not quite sure who to assign the copyright on sketchbook images like these to, would it go to me or Loomis?

    Thanks for dropping by my SB dude! Keep going on those Loomis studies. Look into Bridgman as well. Another book that I am drawing from right now is one by a guy named Fritz Schider. It's an anatomy book and it's super thorough. I'm learning a shitload from it.

    I really like the subject material that you're fleshing out here, but like others have mentioned before, crank out a ton of those anatomy studies (something I'm doing myself). Also, do life drawings regularly. Right now I'm averaging twice a week. Hopefully soon it'll be three times a week.

    Anyways, keep rocking the artwork dude! You definitely made the right decision to pursue art for the rest of your life!

    Thanks Peetaer! Definitely keeping up the Loomis/Bridgman, and I'll look into Schider. I'm also learning a lot from the Ron Lemen tutorials I see all over the place, he explains things very clearly. As for life drawing, I'm starting school again later this month and will be life drawing at least twice a week. Can't wait to get back to it, that's probably what i miss most from my undergrad years!

    Anyways, kicking off the year with some silhouettes! These are fun.

    More Loomis. The next few will be in pencil I think, since trying to do them digitally will tax my sanity to the limit.
