    I like the oil painting and the still life is wonderful.

    I think with perspective you need to work it out beforehand and before you start drawing.

    I really love your style and the designs of your characters. Great stuff!

    "This is a paint and pixel-splattered furnace that forges the swords of artistic mastery. This is a place where swarthy and belligerent dwarves drink turpentine mead, berate their apprentices and slap the trade into their skulls. It's where the anvils are made of graphite, the hammers are as true as rectangular marquee selections and the fires burn with the light of a thousand lensflares." --Jason Rainville

    I like EOW as well except that backgrounds are generally less saturated then the foregrounds. And why haven't you posted the nearly pretty picture?

    I have a lot to learn about color and saturation. I tried to pay close attention to that but I think that blue light is standing out to well back there.

    Hahaha, I didn't think about posting that one actually! I am almost done with it though and I'll put it in the next update.

    Nice sb! Be careful with that brownish-darkish portrait in your last post. I like the color choices but the shadows on the girl's face are way too close in tone to the rest of her skin - it makes her look flat and washed out. To avoid that you could punch up the highlights on her skin and really make sure to give her some depth.

    Hope that helped @_@ Everything else is looking really great!

    The fan art is sweet.

    The cropped version of the last one is tons scarier than the first. I think maybe because the lighting isn't as confusing. A person can have more than one shadow when multiple light sources are around and he doesn't.

    I was on quite a long hiatus from drawing and am just starting again.

    From reference (Photo by Lockstock on dA)

    I wanted to try a different technique from my usual painting by using more water, building on a monochrome base instead of washed together color, and adding more color with watercolor pencils. It was a quick try so I may do another more prolonged attempt. I think I prefer my own methods though.

    And these two are just doodles from imagination. I think I am getting better at constructing figures from my head. Well, I know I am, and it just makes me want to do even more proper studies.

    You are, although the head on that last one is a bit too big. I'm busy learning structure as well - race you.

    Not a big update this time.

    Sketch for a painting. Need to redraw most of her head. Still needs a lot more work.

    That little study has some gorgeous colours on it. Sketch is nice - love the hand gesture.

    Thanks!

    I haven't update in forever. I was in physical therapy for a while and that took a lot of my time...not from drawing, but from scanning and posting.

    I have a good amount to traditional sketches. I'll pick the best ones and post them later. For now have some digital stuff.

    The last one is very interesting. I know what you mean about digital stuff - I've got to the point where I refuse to work on more than one layer.

    Give that last one a full body and legs - she needs it being so sexy.

    Haha, maybe someday she will be a whole girl.

    Man it's been a while since all my sketches have been junk lately. I've been trying to teach myself a new medium and it hasn't been working out in my favor but I am making progress.

    So here's what I do have to show that's not embarrassing:

    Trying to shy away from static-y poses.

    Beginning sketch for new WIP. Going to try to push the "realism" in this one. And by that I mean, make materials look convincing.

    I forgot to say how much I enjoyed the traditional work posted earlier.

    Love the girl with the ribbon - so striking.

    I love this. I like the colors and the pose, it's so surreal and dramatic.

    Thanks everyone! Well I got a job in my initial field of interest which is the instruction of a special needs child or children (I would someday like to teach special education). It's only part time which still allows some time for art.

    First, congrats on the job, I'm sure you'll do well.

    The SP is not the most flattering and is a bit cartoony.

    I'm looking forward to what you do with the guy as you don't draw them much and it's looking cool so far.
