Grassy I'll try, thanks ) BluezAce You're welcome mate! FAST ART Thank you!
I'm sorry for almost 2 week absence - on previous weekend I had some sort of viral infection, made me really sick for about 7-8 days - so sick, that I litteraly hated all of my paintings and felt like nauseating every time I looked at it. But now I'm ok, and gathering inspiration again so soon I'll update!
alexson Thx I will kingkostas Thanks mate for your support! krel Thank you! BluezAce I'm feeling ok now, thank you - and I'm back now )
So, I'm 200% rested, feeling good and now ready to paint again and improve farther. To be honest I hadn't done a single doodle since I got sick, but I think I had right to take a rest for a while. There's alot of work ahead of me, but I'll try to keep updates daily!
For now - nothing new - I'm picking up where I've left off. And some imaginative stuff. However I'll try to do some original stuff

welcome back .
You are doing good progress with the rendering.I see you dont become lost on a random value range but trying to keep it focused.Thats good.Of course the anatomy issues make some things to look strange and make the values work less right..
Keep it up mate!!!
Welcome back! I'm sorry to hear you were sick However, taking a bit of a break (even if it's forced) can be a very good thing. Recharging the batteries and all that.
You should do more face studies, from life or photos. Proportions are a bit off, for example you place mouth too close to the nose and they could use more of the area that is below cheeks. I'm sorry, I don't know if it has a name! Area around the mouth, I guess.
The fish creature is looking good, although the red pokes my eyes. I think it's something about yellow, red and electric blue being so close to each other. Perhaps settle with green/yellow/blue tones, or add more red around the image to make it fit better. It doesn't work well as an accent in this case, in my opinion.
@ kingkostas Thank you, youe support always priceless.
@ Donna Thanks and I know what you talking about ) For a while I had lips too from nose, now it's too close... I guess soon I'll settle with the right one ) And about frog - last piece wasn't overlayed with some gradient map or photofilter. Usually I use them to settle some colors together in piece (even with low opacity it gives some nice results)
@ Braintree Thanks ) That lightspot was totally stupid - I was doing it not thinking alot about that study ^_^'
@ Chr. Steam Thanks, soon probably create more animation )
Ok... Now I'm really ready to go fullspeed! I've played alot (btw Singularity really good game), watched alot, and read alot. My inspirationtank filled, and I'm almost glowing from creative radiation.
So for now I'm starting to worry about job (I still have 2 years to study at university, but I want to have some serious, pro exp behind me, when I'll be off) so first thing to do - renewing portfolio. I wanna do some big, welldetailed pieces, so they could represent my current level.
So here's some wips (cropped, bigger picture is yet to be revealed)
