I've been passing by your sketchbook over and over for the last couple of days and trying to think of something to say that hasn't been said over and over already. So...
The thing that strikes me about your artwork (and yourself for that matter) is that you are sincere. Passionate too, but sincere in what you draw. The emotion imbedded in all of your work is real, although it might not have a purpose all the time, and that is downright exciting. I'm not really sure what purpose telling you that has, but its a feeling I get everytime I visit.
You're making tracks my dear. Keep hiking.

Hey Plissken, stopping by to make sure you're doing well. For whatever reason my subscription thing in my control panel didn't inform me of your last update, so I didn't know you were still updating. I'll have to check that out!
Painting with the default brush is probably the best way to get better at painting, though. When painting in photoshop that's really the only brush that I can use (often with shape dynamics jacked up for size, also). Don't focus on rushing through your painting, but layer your shapes opaquely. Big shapes to little shapes, general to specific, etc. etc. The more solid shapes you get into your painting before blending the more form you'll build (SOLID SHAPES YEAH!). I know you probably know all of this, but once again- the reminder is for both of us. Fucking love the learning experience man, keep killing it.
I'm looking to collaborate with some people on something, if you're interested in doing sketch exchanges or something please hit me up. We could create worlds!

Holy shit, It's been some time since I posted here; and I have to admit that you have made a lot of improvement all this time. That breast study from last year was both tragic and titillating; and that jab at facebook kinda reminds me of some of Ralph Bakshi's movies, and some early Newgrounds cartoons (Namely Goldilocks by Em Kaah). Keep kicking ass man!

Your getting some amazing advice in here man, and well deserved too, I've seen you giving a lot to this community lately.
Digitalis are getting so much better, but careful to watch your edges tho, sometimes there are to many soft edges, so some contrast would help define form.
So pleased to see the traditional sketches too, keep those coming!

i like that right smoke a bit more.. tho it can use some softer edges on the hard highlights.
its like the clouds im painting now with oils.. they totally new for me. just look at some good refference photos'.. study them.. look at them.. become them.. taste them.. eat them.. smell them.. have sex with it..
its not something u will master fast or directly.. just make more of them with the same brush and u will see u will progress fast and eventually master them.. just behold u patience.. and have sex with clouds!! that would do the thrik..
Cheers for the Post Rob.

very nice updates indeed.
Good work on that last portrait of still spider. She looks very old and worried about death to me.
The armor designs are motivating. And I would say more, but i dont want to swallow your time. Because I am pretty good at swallowing. wait...
my subconscious does not stop begging my conscious to draw.
hmm does that mean im a slave to my subconscious?
at least it doesnt beg for crack. ha.

Your faces are improving, whilst the eyes still need a bit of work the noses, mouths and overal proportions of the faces are definently getting there.
Keep up the good work mate!

cool update! i like the armor sketches a lot.
as for the fire, default brush can be a bitch i guess... adjusting the flow and opacity helps a bit but not that much i guess. I think the image is missing some more orange / more light since the heart of the fire seems pretty intense with all the white yet the surroundings are rather dim.
keep it up and get that new update out soon!

Really dig the portrait and the armor designs,
and as for the smoke, just try doing a photo study
of smoke I guess; it's hard to make smoke right at first but
just keep practicing and you'll have it down in no time.
Nice variety of heads; just keep practicing with planes, eyes, noses, etc.

Great studies! That black and white portrait looks great, so does the smoke. I never really tried doing detailed smoke, but after this I think I should! Keep up the fine work!

The closest I've come to painting a large amount of smoke like that was clouds... and that was such a huge challenge. Smoke has a different.. soul to it, I guess. Often more sinister of feeling to it than the fluffy happiness of the clouds I painted. Quite a challenge, so I'd love to see any future approaches to painting smoke if you decide to keep pursuing it :]
