    a ninja I painted, though I'd like critique on process, because digital process is one thing I still get caught up in; I've seen so many processes and I still haven't found the one that works for me yet, but I have a lot yet to learn, but any comments would be helpful.

    I started out with a rough block in, then went over it with lines, then used a multiply layer for flat colors plus a multiply layer for shadows, then I basically just blended (plus in the end I used a chromatic abberation technique to create a slight blur effect)

    Hey bro

    Looking for a crit on your painting? Mm, an idea I see from your shadows at least, if you're going for a more stylised look, then use the lassoo tool to mask off the areas of shadow and paint flat, clean shadows on like that. Also I don't think you have painted any highlight in, for example in the eyes, or where there is an edge which is perpendicular to the light, for example the corner of the cheek bone. Hope that helps..

    lolbbq - Thanks man! I appreciate the comparison haha, though I'm sure my style will change a lot by the time I've mastered everything

    kungfoowiz - Thanks for the critique man, I really don't know what I'm trying to go for in the way of how stylized I'd like it to be yet, I guess I was just fumbling around; a bunch of tutorials will do me good.

    by the way, today is my 21st BIRTHDAY. So I won't be able to get much work done today, but I will at least try to put something up before I go celebrate.

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY BRO!!! Go have a BLAST!!! Forget about us for a day! Lol.=)

    I'd be interested to see how Hannes or Jana improve upon your piece, if they have the chance.. =)

    For a more realistic piece, I think you need more tones to show the turning of form, similarly to how you did the face, but more, and the same goes for his jacket and katana.
    Also show how the lighting is affecting your background in a bit more detail, but keep the contrast (with values) low so that the focus is on the guy.

    thanks kungfoowiz!

    here's a new self portrait (25 mins). The head is too big for the features, so I stopped it and decided I'll do a life drawing (including self portraits) every night so that I improve my observational skills. I'm also getting a planar head cast this week, so I can't wait for that.

    Hey bro, nice range of work. Your self portrait is looking ace, you got the angles nicely there, good luck with your next one. =)
    One thing just with the lady I notice, keep in mind the size of the hand to her face. The imagination and creature thing is cool, they are soo fun, I love them too. =)
    Awesome, good luck with your nexts!¬ =)

    Last two sketches look very good, dude. I wish I could say something constructive but I can't find anything wrong atm. Keep going.

    Thanks guys! I doubt I'll work on the lizard thing anymore, I didn't really care for it much.

    Here's a 25-min self portrait from tonight

    learned a little about doing hair

    did a quick master study using only 5 colors (limited palette)

    I've decided I need to focus on getting better with eyes in portraits most of all.

    Hey man! The joao ruas study is great. I love his Fables covers! What's the latest master study from though (the man in the suit).
    I think for hair, the individual strands don't matter as much as the clumps of masses, but I think you understand that concept since looking through your other studies you're thinking in masses which is good! Strands can be fun though. Anyway, just keep up the good work

    The master study is bob dylan by malcolm liepke. I noticed that the eyes are totally lopsided, but I'll be working on eyes. Thanks for the comment : ]
    And yeah, the hair was just from a tutorial (I guess for doing more realistic hair showing strands, I would generally not put many strands in hair that I do)
