    This is a digital painting Ive been working on for quite some time. I think it is finished but if anyone has any tips on how to make it stronger I would appriciate it. The close up is the actual pixel size.

    You do some nice things with colour. Work a little on anatomy but also, try to solidify your forms a little, otherwise they end up looking flat as with the latest painting. And continue to explore every facet of your imagination and your technical ability! Having fun is very important, in my books.

    PerinGalitte : Thank you for the colour complement. I'll try to keep the solidity of my forms in mind.

    Jesusfood: Thanks man, ill keep the color coming

    I've been really into Aztec design lately. There is something about the graphic quality that attracts me so here is a sketch inspired by the ancients of south america.

    Hey Ninjac . Strong paintings you've got here. For post#33, to make it stronger, maybe you could place some stronger highlights at places you want to attract the viewer's attention. But I'm not sure it will help here, because you've already nice values i think .
    Love to see more Aztec stuff, I'm also fond of it, actually history itself .

    Have fun .

    Lyno: Thank you for the suggestion. I think I could use a boost in highlights to direct the viewers eye. I might do it with color though, I think the emeralds ended up being a bit too saturated so I'll mess around and see.

    Here is some sketches and my Newborn contest piece. I'll be fleshing out a bit more of the details for the final piece but its almost done. I'm leaving for Ireland tomorrow and I plan to do lots of landscape color studies while I'm there.

    jagmed: Thanks! I've been trying to keep an eye out for my color balance.

    I just got back from Ireland last night and am geared to draw. I have some sketches from my book that ill be posting soon as well as a link to the many reference photos that I took while there. I want anyone on CA to utilize them as they please. I just have to go through all 500 at get the good ones : / Here is a dsg sketch until then. The dsg thread closed right before I wanted to post it but oh well, i'll hop on the next one.

    Lots of potential here. I would lay off the colour drawings/paintings and full on compositions a bit and focus more on getting back to the basics: studying anatomy, studying the interplay between light and dark (from life), studying basic shapes (cylinders, boxes, spheres & cones). Study colour later. Focus on the basics and then build your way up.

    Good luck

    Peetaer: Thanks! I've been getting the same vibe, but I love color! I need to spend more time mastering the basics. Thanks for the advice.

    Here are some sketches that I did while on vacation. The first one is pen. I don't use ink often but it helps me to try and use less sketchy lines. The next two are from imagination. Ages is story that I've been working on for sometime and is most of the inspiration for my personal work. Some hand studies of my wife's and my hands, Cityscape of downtown Chicago and sketch for the dsg. The last one is a piece I am starting for another competition. Here is my flickr page link so some of my vacation photos. I'll be adding more in the next few days for reference photos that anyone needs.

    Ooh, nice stuff. I dig those little bar skeleton paintings, the maps and the abstract colour pieces. Great job on the traditional portraits too.

    Great progres, Ninjac. You definitely have a passion for colors and I'm loving it!
    If I may, I would like to recommand you use hard edged brushes. Bluring effect tends to make your work look less confident.
    Also, Photoshop can be overwhelming with its easy to use diverse brushes but it's probably the best if you stick with a basic brush and learn how to paint first.
    This goes to any artists out there! The beauty of photoshop can also ruin your basics!

    Munin Rave: Thanks!

    davekang: Yea, I have noticed on some of my recent paintings a blurry effect that I didn't really know how to handle and a hard edge brush makes complete sense.Thanks for the advice!

    Here is some shape studies of a turnaround figure.

    Update for this piece. I've extend the canvas to allow for more space for the wings. They felt a bit cramped. I want to work a bit on the scale of the landscape so it looks farther away. I hope to have this done soon

    Hey
    You have some nice stuff in here, even though some pics have this strong unfinished feeling. Good studies, keep it up

    Hey, thanks for dropping by my sb

    I see here that you have quite nice colour works and you're really talented paining faces, specially female ones

    I think that maybe you can work on your values a little bit more, so your forms would have more depth. E.g., your digi painting of the girl with the throne could use some more contrast

    You're doing a great work!! Keep it up!!

    Wanimal : Thanks

    Quike Garcia: Thanks for the compliment! I sometimes like to hang on to the smokey effect a bit too much and that tends to hurt my value range so I'll try to work on that.

    I'm super stoked with this piece. It's the first character concept that I feel I have done in a professional manor from thumbnails to finished concept. I am going to submit it to the digitalartistawards and keep my fingers crossed. I tried to keep some of the comments and critiques in mind from previous posts so I hope it shows.

    Ariel is a character in "Ages", my little personal illustrated story. She is the first fallen angel in the war between heaven and hell. Hope you all enjoy ^_^

    Trying out a different style. This is a quick illustration I did this morning, about 1 hour in length. It makes me laugh and I had fun painting this one

    Hello there and thank you for visiting my sb!
    I'm here to return the love

    And i must say, i live the smooth, clean way you draw your figures.
    Try working with more saturated shadows when the highlights are desaturated and the other way around to boost that mood ^^

    Keep at it!
