    a good trick for not getting so exhausted after hours is to work at 2,3 pieces at the same time, like one hour on one piece, then moving to the next one, and so one, this way you keep a fresh eye and you dont do the same thing for many hrs.
    The painting is from posemaniacs right? Came out really well, maybe add a little detail to the feet. Good work! And keep it UP!

    Your latest study turned out really good.
    I'd recommend you to try to work with larger brushsizes, though. Make your strokes more efficient. The less detail the bigger the brush, the more detail the smaller the brush. Hope that helps

    tugelbend - thanks for ur kind word... I do use big brush as well as small brush,,, what I lack is getting the stroke right on the first try

    kfeeras - The ref I used is from characterdesigns.com. They have very, very nice photoset of poses. I just visit posemaniacs for the 1st time, it's pretty cool, and looks useful. Since it's 3d model, it's not totally accurate. Just watch out for those weird bending, especially with the females. Thanks for the comment.

    new stuff, some ancient worrior wip

    The study in your first post looks pretty tight.

    As for the new one, I can't help but think the arms are a little beefy in relation to the rest of his body

    continue on,,,
    Define more details. I want to carry some attitude in him, but it doesn's seem like the pose shows much. I change it a bit to give some more attitude. I like this much better.
    this is it for today, continue on later

    The slight change of the pose makes his character more evident for sure. Really dig the design so far.

    alicelefay = thank u, there'll b alot more wip as this book grows.

    Meissner = yup yup, I dig this pose much better than the other. The other one looks very stagnet, and kinda boring. Thank u for sharing thought.

    I will continue it later on. As for now, more studies!!!
    Choose a very loud ref to study off, the hardcore screamingd. Add some loud stroke to add dramatic.
    t
    The female,, I tried to go as fast as possible, and it all adds to 50 mins... lkaflas

    Ah now I see. At first I thought you'd handle your brush more like a pencil but now I see that this is caused by the brush you use. Durr, stupid me
    Anyway, I really like the head study. Turned out great.

    Ancient worrior continue.

    Had the hardest time with his left arm hand. I had to walk back and forth to my mirror 20 thousands time, and re-drawn it a dozen time....and still cant get it look right. urrggg....sigh.......

    Dont really like how it turn out, it looks too tight. I would like it better if it's a lil more loose.
    Spend much more time on it than I suppose to. About 10 hours total.
    Well, that's it for now. Called it done, gonna move on to the next one. (unless a someone call something out that would make the painting better, =)

    Looks nice, man.

    Is Bui part of your name, by chance? I know a guy named Tong Bui, and your work kinda' reminds me of some of his.

    Good job on the duder, my only crit would be the fuzzyness of some of the parts where detail should be. The arm facing the viewer could be a little tighter in the hand and elbow. Seems you arent 100% sure what is happening so you arent rendering it fully.
    Then for the studies, why rush? Rather do a good 1h study of the figure with details and such instead of 5 x 20min speedies where you just gloss over the bits!
    Keep up the good work!

    I think the prob with the left arm is the way the bicep looks - it seems a bit too short and so the whole arm is dislocated a bit from the shoulder. Still, it looks good.

    Maybe try smoothing things down, not everything of course, to remove the brush lines a bit.

    Meissner= man, thanks for continually stopping my sb,,,
    My last name is Bui alright... first name is Tu, pronounce Two, that's why it's 2buiart

    muzzoid - as long as i keep practicing, Im on the right track.. thanks for swinging by

    kidult - Your sb has some really nice studies, i dig. As for the duder = agree, that arm is a lil fuzzy when I take a look at it again. I might go back into later on.
    I usually try to be flexible with my studies, sometime I would spend hours on one study just because I want to know why does it look like the way it looks. Sometime I would try to go really quick to practice my speed.

    biomanz - The bicep part is foreshortening,,, it looks a bit off cuz I didnt render it corectly. I think the shadow of it looks a lil too dark compare to the overall shadow where the skins shows.

    Last study before I head out for night. this One is inspired by one of the critique specialist in this forum = Blue.
    He is such a kind guy for helping bunch of other artist work. He suggested me to do something different =

    "You already have examples of the muscle structure for a human arm, try and add an extra join to that arm. This exercise prevents you from being a copy machine and gets you thinking about how/why those muscle groups are there and what they do together. You can make the extra join bend anyway you want, just make it work with all of the muscles / tendons / bones."

    This study was a harder than I thought. I thought = alright, I'm just gonna do this straight out of my head cuz I know anatomy pretty well already. WRONG
    The moment I tried to add muscles to the 3rd joint, it looks like wobble fats. haha FUk,,,, then i had to look at myself in the mirror along with my anatomy book to nail it down.
    It was a very interesting subject to study.

    Yeah I see there is foreshortening on that bicep, but where the pec meets the bicep is where it looks to be too far out. The darkness of it shouldnt be the problem.

    Interesting suggestion that Blue suggested. I'm gonna try it as well.

    biomanz - Let me see it when u are finish with it

    Meissner - same to u

    On these 2, I went completely nuts with brush stroke, splashing random strokes all over place. Then when I see something interesting, I defines it out. For fun.

    For sure. Those concepts in post #22 are sick, man.

    The chasing pose thing for the gate keeper looks a bit stocky. It looks like you'd have it move similar to a Gorilla; maybe study their movements a little more? Idk. Pretty cool, though.

    alicelefay and Meissner- Thanks for ur motivation.......I went ahead and continue on with the random brush sketch.
    During the process, I had LOUD trance music on. I try to not move my hand off the cintiq and just keep on adding stroke and minus stroke. It was fun!. I stop every once in while to see if everything is not too off. I felt like I was lost into the painting.

    For the gatekeeper running, yeah, ref would help alright.

    great work here, that portrait("Face expressions.jpg") is what attracts me at first. Splendid use of brush strokes, and the mouth is perfect. Great work on the last one too.

    I ENVY YOU!@

    alicelefay- u should try electronic music while you paint or draw.. it's fun.

    aaron death - Thanks for ur kind words

    Meissner - The cintiq is fukking awesome. I love it. It feels more like traditional than the tablet cuz I can paint straight onto the painting. I can hit my stroke much more accurate than the tablet. Once I got on the cintiq, I dont ever want to go back to the tablet.
