    Hey there !
    Pirate guy looks cool and the lady above him, too.
    The "warmup" picture is interesting, too, but I'd probably a bit more consequent with the line work, because the outlines look really cluttered. Maybe you should show us some pencil sketches ? I'd really like that.
    Keep up the good work ! I would love to see more !

    I agree mate, i've got into the habit of 'feathery line work' and its a bugger to break lol. but aye, ill upload some of my pencil work once i dig out my scanner..

    Hi SSG friend! You've got a nice start. As mentioned the line quality of the warm up poses are abit feathery. The only real way to improve this is to draw a lot, from life preferably.
    I can also recommend setting up a sketch schedule / routine, like:
    1 page posemaniacs for warm up
    1 still life drawing of a random object from your desk/room
    1 page of studies from Loomis, bridgeman, kchen etc.

    Hey Cuervo
    Actually, I think that your most recent picture is pretty decent for a "quick play around". Nice light and stuff.

    I agree, that latest splatter brush speed-paint ain't bad at all. The yellow's a bit primary/acidic, but otherwise it's nice. Show me more!

    Good stuff so far. One thing I tell a lot of people though, even when it comes to studies is to not "force the issue". Learn to relax, and draw with confidence. Don't worry about messing up, cause you learned something, and just move on after you're finished. You can tell when someone starts getting too conservative about what they draw and things tend to look stiff.
