    You're clearly improving, but some of your paintings still lack contrast (mostly it's the environments). Maybe doing some simple still lifes with graphite or charcoal might help. This way you're not distracted with colors and simply need to render the tone of the light as well as you can. After getting good at this you'll get an easier time when working with colors.

    And I lolled at the Starcraft comic. Thats a great idea!

    Those eyes are looking great, altho the lack some contrast as the guy above me said. I also find their light reflections look very weird, not real. try to playa round with blend modes to enchance them. Also don't be afraid to make an adjustment layer, like lvels, contrast/brightness or epxosure, it can really improve overall feel.

    Keep it up, reporting out.

    hey guys!
    been awhile since my last post, bah so busy barely had time to draw this month
    any way

    Icecold you are right! the reflections suck! big time lol didn't see that will take notice of that for next time.

    pantless_wanderer yes I am working more on contrast and values now just check out my next piece

    this one is for the blizzard contest, I start with grayscale so I dont have to worry about anything else for now except values and composition and after that I can start put color on it, I never tried this before so this is very experimental for me.
    The orc looks too much like lord of the rings orc imo but I think I will leave him as it is. I like the red flag it kind of fills in the atmosphere and leads the viewers eye to the right direction what do you guys think? opinions about composition values color anything at all will be greatly appreciated!

    you're critique guys worth gold so don't hesitate to drop a word or two!

    cheers!

    i feel like in this last painting you are trying to do too many things in one painting

    it feels like there are 5 different paintings happening at the same time i think you should try and focus on one or to elements that you like and flesh them out

    just my 2 cents keep up the fight !

    Hmm, i think you've made yourself a harder job by doing it this way.

    First of all I think you went too fast too details in that grayscale sketch, leave it simple you will efine later. Overlay or color layer with basic colous and then overpaint. That's hwo most of people including myself are doing.
    Altho cool idea, ah big bad orc protecting a vunerable weak woman, is it love or desire? ;>

    P. S Those clouds start to look neat!

    Zorcron thanks I will consider that
    Ice! yeah I was kinda carried over with this piece and started the rendering too soon, I am in the process of it it will take time until I finish it though because I can't release it before it looks the way I want it to.

    a quick speed painting was experimenting with brushes on this one.

    any way a little background about this dude, so he was walking around the scrabble in a local scrap yard to look for a pipe to fix his toilet, and he found one but it wasn't just an ordinary pipe it was the pipe of a mad scientist who lost it when his lab blew up this pipe is charged with epic powers and the wielder of this epic pipe gains +10 to toilet fixing skills and +100 to saving on electric bill.

    anyway here's a small update on the orc piece.

    Hmm its getting better but i almost can feel your pain with finishing this piece

    If you have started with basic colours or overlayed some colours earlier it would be much faster. Take a look on a samurai speedpainting in my sketchbook, and it took me like 2h and 10-20 min. Because its waaay faster if you start like i said.
