    phiq - thanks again for the encouragement, much appreciated!
    NewGuy22 - thank you. Sorry I missed your comment the last time I posted!

    Some more studies here, and one attempt at something, what it was I don't know. I'm still working at being bold with colour,
    and getting the saturation, values etc as accurate as possible, (for the studies that is).

    Self portrait, my very first..... Ok, so the story goes that I started this, did about 2.5 hrs work then had a system crash, (of sorts), and lost everything! That will teach me not to save!
    This took about 4 hrs, using a standard round brush I modified. All done on a single layer. Oh, and I'm not a fan of staring at myself for so long!
    Hopefully I came close to portraying my likeness.

    very nice self portrait! i like that Reign of Fire study you did. keep doing those... ask why the light is bouncing off his head like that. learn the importance of cool and warm colors (ie. in large landscapes cool colors are almost always the background because of the distance). keep going and never stop!! and thanks for the thanks. ;]

    MattGamer, phiq, designfox - thank you!

    First off some study...

    Then I've also been playing around with some other stuff. Nothing Specific, just exploring.
    This is something from imagination, which started out like this...

    Those last sketches are looking really good. You still seem to be struggling with color (just like me). Take a look at this tutorials, they helped me a lot:

    Holy feces! Dude! You are really stepping on the gas. The female figure study looks great. The muscle anatomy is all sweet except for the pectorals in crucifix pose... it's a common mistake; pectorals stretch, change shape and flatten out in the center of the chest, and they (if muscular) lose that "overhang" which occurs when arms are relaxed by the torso's side. See here >>



    The character mash-ups are looking great too; I like the red wizard dude the best. I can see you're getting into the whole "make it up as you go along" thing frequently sported around here and similar places; evidence being the fluctuating degrees of completed parts comprising the characters at this point. We've all been/are in there. In my experience, this generally works well if you want something generic. But I think planning in detail is what makes the difference... my current hobgoblin character has taught me a lot about that. Photoshop's knack for making processes appear seductively simple is compounded by the sheer amount of skillful, media-drunk youth populating this site and others similar. The result is the perpetuation of fashionable, not-quite-brilliant habits... these seem to stem from the production speeds game developers demand. I don't think it's good for art though...

    I think it'd be great if you designed a character from the ground up. The glimpses of your personal flavour you lend to your work don't seem generic so I think the result could be good. In your own time, of course

    Please give erudite, constructive critiques or give none at all.

    Yeah I agree with phiq! your improvement is quite noticeable. All those life drawing studies have really helped with you recent character designs. Nice work.

    Dude, I love that last character. It's got a nice mix of influences and the colours are nicely balanced. The pose is great but his right hand is doing something funny... haha

    But... notice how your sketchbook figures look a bit different to the one done in PS? There's something you're doing right in the digital one, because the sketchbook ones seem a little laboured over. Some of the lines are pretty etched in. Anyway, you're still rocking some unique design elements!

    The studies are coming out well too. You've captured the movement of the gymnast quite well

    Thanks phiq, you're spot on. Got to work on my pencils, (have been).

    So I'm still around, just very lazy! Also playing around with a lot of different things, which means nothing ever gets finished!
    Here's some stuff, including three failed attempts at joining the CHOW challenges...

    Hey Leonard, nice to see an update. Your figures are looking good. Those key muscles and proportions are looking really strong (literally as well). Those three beefy dudes from the "failed" CHOW really come across as powerful warriors, even with very limited detail. As someone trained in animation, this is a very good thing! Some of your linework is displaying an increasing confidence too. Really nice chum

    Dude, finish that last one off, who cares if it's too late. Your figures are strong enough a foundation for painting, methinks.

    Cheers phiq. You're right, I've got to just go ahead and finish it off...

    For those of you who don't know, I'm now a full-time Graphic Design student! It's going well and it keeps me busy. Some more study...

    Lol, Fisting, ass, suck it... What have you been up to man!?

    Great news about being a graphic design student. It's one of those cross-disciplinary things that really help, especially with colour and form. Type is really cool too. I've done just one short, one semester course on graphic design and I gained a lot.

    What's with the red dots on your figures though...? Looks like measles, haha

    Haha, the red dots were actually large design patterns I was playing with. I was just
    messing around with the step and repeat command in PS.

    I'm planning on putting up my student designs on a blog for people to crit if you're interested?

    ^_^ - thanks bud, appreciate the support.

    velvetcat - thanks for stopping by.

    Thought I'd put up some 3D work done for my studies, (product design). I've been slack in updating and this stuff has already been assessed but crits and comments are always welcome. Enjoy!
