    Sketchdump & Ideawasteland, now with more Shameless Boobery

    Starting with the most recent, a doodle I did a few days ago, referenced from this. Was done as an exercise in grid painting.

    Focus was on the face so I rushed the rest (it shows unfortunately.)

    Another face doodle, indirect observation rather than gridpainting this time. Only spent 30-45 minutes on this; it's pretty rushed.

    Slightly NSFW. A 'speed' paint based on the cliche 'Venus' concept, inspired by some Wikipedia browsing actually.

    No direct refs, I think the background and face could have used one though. Might expand on this later at any rate.

    This is a bit more refined but I'm not happy with the end result as I was the sketch, so it goes into sketchbook.

    Basically a ratgirl and a butterfly. It was meant as lighting practice but I don't think I nailed it quite right. This took about 12 hours overall but most of it was me backtracking and being unsure of how to work something.

    @Towy: There's plenty wrong with it, indeed. It's just a developed 'sketch' at any rate, not a truly finished piece so I wasn't planning on posting progress images to CA for feedback, if that's what you mean.

    Could you tell me what aspect of the anatomy you feel is incorrect? For future reference and practice.

    hello i want to say nice start on your sb

    and hmm if there are problems on your anatomy ... proportions maybe and some volume because light seem to attach to the volume in a strange way

    at the neck its kinda blurry im not sure whats going on there but even whit this the piece is a good one and stand on by its self if you understand me

    maybe some more contrast because the light comes just from 2 tiny light sources

    this is it m8 wanna c more from ya

    cheers and enjoy your stay

    Two small pictures from the past few days. First is a little doodle used in a small banner image for someone's Lineage 2 fansite. It's scaled down majorly there so the image is rather undetailed.

    And a little unfinished image that started from a head doodle yesterday. I might expand this one later on. (Yes she's missing a hand. >_> ) Right now I admit the values are all similar so it looks somewhat overly pastel, I sketched it up pretty quickly.

    Feedback is welcome of course, especially (mostly) on the second one.

    Sweet stuff! I would like to see some use of textures, I think with your sweet rendering skills the two combined would be majestic.

    You really have some talent going on here man, The first image of your latest post is awesome - she has some great movement and I like the way she looks at me (the spectator). The second image, I like how you put her.. but I rather believe she's a bit too close to the edge.. I would center her more, just slightly.. to better the composition.

    Slightly long hiatus on CA posting...

    I don't consider this serious enough to warrant posting in the Critique forum, but if you want to have a crack at it, feel free. It's a character portrait I'm doing for fun... right now I'm having issues with the clothing design and crop.

    Alternate Crop.

    I sort of feel the arms are the issue right now. Crop 2 feels weird because the arm makes the scene feel calmer than I want, while I feel Crop 1's hand and arm throws the composition.

    Also it was pointed out to me that her right-hand eye is skewed... will fix that later on.

    Any suggestions are appreciated.

    I think that Crop 2 is the crop to go with.
