    Hay, I'm really liking the style of that dark skull! Everything about it looks nice - the comosition, the lighting, the design. One thing I would like to see is this picture super refined and rendered. It could be amazing.

    I like the value and texture of the skull character. Looking forward to the rest of the scans!

    thanks ayem and oomgawa . I think im going to touch that one up sometime this arvo.

    I haven't gotten round to scanning stuff yet, but here is a gouache painting i did this morning.
    First proper attempt at paints since high school, so i'm pretty happy with the outcome. About 3 hours.

    It feels nice to use some real media for once. Though if only i had a better scanner.

    EDIT: scanned the painting again as the last scan looked like ass.

    Muzzoid, thank you for the praise and the advice. You're right. It makes sense.

    I really like the top B/W child and the woman in the second pic, who is well balanced. You have good balance and movement. There's a lot I don't know anything about, yet, lol, but I can see those things.

    I'm no good at gouache, so I won't dare to talk about that.

    My best wishes and thanks for taking time out to comment.

    Hey Muzz!
    The last face has some proportion issues and the eyes are kind of strangely shaped as are the ears.
    Your rendering seems to have improved. Less scratchy.

    PS: there's some pretty heavy jpeg artifacting going on in the second and third pic for me.

    thanks guys.

    DauDau.
    Dont be afraid on commenting on a medium you haven't used yourself, its just a different workflow. So feel free to comment on anything you see wrong with it, as i know there are many things wrong with it.

    Rubber, yeah i see all the problems in the face now D:. That's the thing with paint, you cant go back and use a transform tool on it to try and cover the mistakes, but hey its probably really good practice for me.

    Ill fix up those images with the artifacts when i get the time.

    'sup bra? Sorry I took so long to catch up. I was looking at your old SB thinking 'man, Murray is never going to update' hehe. How's school? Are you working every day on updating your portfolio? Hmm?

    gots some overpaints for ya:

    A lot of your forms and proportions are vague and lacking in detail. If you're not already, I would suggest working more from reference. Also you probably need to be spending more time (and attention) on each piece, you've got what it takes to nail these down, you just need to DO it. Remember that bad studies just reinforce bad habits.

    Keep rockin', work on that portfolio, and come crit/kick my ass some time...

    there's definitely a huge difference between your computer quick sketches and your traditional painting. like BludHund said, reference definitely helps with the proportion. you probably want to use ones with good lighting so that the drawings don't turn out flat. keep drawing!

    hey Bludhund!

    Thanks for the crits mate, i agree with you on all points.

    Those last 2 heads were from reference but most of the problems you pointed out are because of lack of attention to detail.

    As far as school goes, I'm finished for the year, and I've been working on those colour studies that Manley got me to start all week, (freckin boring and not really much fun to look at so i wont bother posting them.... but hell its helping with colour mixing).

    Ill make sure i start spend much more time on this shiz....
    Ill scan in some sketches today as well .

    Thanks dirty sox.

    Hi muzz, nice painting skills mate.
    Some anatomy problems, but nothing a little study wont fix.
    Really cool dark skull peice at the top, and nice brush work on the paints.

    Keep up the good work, and don't slow down.

    matt,

    I like your paintings, but I feel that both your digital and traditional ones would benefit from a better range of values. They all seem pretty flat to me.
