    it's really good that you're attempting environments right from the get-go. a lot of people (myself included) put it off way too long, and it really is shooting yourself in the foot. if you can get perspective and environments to a sufficient level, your illustrations practically paint themselves, you know? so, kudos on that.

    one suggestion, avoid absolute colors. you will almost never find an organic instance of a pure color- especially white. if you've done an entire environment and it looks pretty good, but you realize you've used a bunch of white, then tone the entire thing down (i prefer a curves adjustment layer for this). then grab your brush again and go back in to hit the brightest areas (ideally those requiring the most focus as well) with a high value. the end result is a drawing with values representative of a realistic spectrum, rather than blown out or under-exposed.

    i hope that makes sense. keep up the good work!

    Hey,
    Concerning potrait dravving, especially vvhen you vvant to add tones, as you like to do, geometrisize the face. Make it more structural. It vill help you not only toning the face, but also dravving it. Learn to construct a head.
    Loomis books have something about it, as vvell as Hogarth`s books. They are actually very bad books, but getting a good book doesn`t help a beginner much and doesn`t give much kudos in the professional industries, as fine arts are a bit avvay from commercial/games/visualisation and even film.

    Your hand dravvings are quite good, it shows that you have it in you - a good sight. It's teachable though, and one needs to practice that aspect of drawing as well.
    Concerning the desert, that's pretty nice. But don't saturate it! It's a very common and a very ugly mistake to do. What the desert needs it's just _some_ vivid colour strokes to bring out the full bloom of the colour you already put in there.

    Hey dude ! You already made some improvments ! keep working on it ! like sourgasm said, it's cool you're able to do paintings from the get-go ! i also take too much time on mines, and i think it's a great advantage for you ! so keep your painting up, draw more from life, paint from life, and you'll be good in a few time ! Take care

    Lots of work, that'll take you far if you're patient. I see scribbling in your digitals, try using a bigger brush then you think you'll need and then slowly block in. This'll make things more realistic and save you a lot of time (you'll be doing one stroke where you would now be doing about 3-5.) Keep it up, I look forward to seeing this stuff by page 15 or so

    more face studies and when you paint try to make them smooth with less white marks in them, set your brush to 1% spacing on Photoshop (if your using it, not to sure about other programs) and then set opacity to pen pressure. That will help smooth your digital paintings out. - And using the burn tool is not recommended for shading.

    PS use bigger brush sizes when blocking in colours.
    My observational skills may be great but I said nothing about my drawing skills

    Hi HerrleerzeichenS,
    The environment from #65 is nice, but the flames would more influence teh light/colour of the surrounding. Some critique for the selfportraits from #66: I do not think it is good to draw a background, like you did. I would leave it away or draw it more accurately. It is great that you are so hard working!

    hey there thanks alot for your comment
    there is not much to say to you your walking the right path it just takes time and practice,i like the sketches ur doing do alot more of these,and focus on fixing the stucture in forms,the structural skill is very important, to know how to build stuff.
    i dont know if u have seen this link,it changed my life.
