    Cool concepts.

    The only thing is their legs. I'd suggest either practice leg anatomy, or showing weight distribution. Other than that, good job. Can't wait to see more.

    Hey great start to an SB so far, the thumbs are really cool shows very good costume design. Love the medieval armor stuff, and great job on pushing for variety on the three figures. Too early to crit but work on those hands, maybe? and keep em coming.

    Those hands are coming along really well. This last batch of figures has some nice forms, particularly the first, second & last one. You've got some good faces in there too.

    Wonderful sketchbook so far! The amount of work you're putting out is great. You might want to watch out for is similar faces being repeated over and over in sketches. And for the painting of girl with spear, you should check out the proportions and maybe just draw a body to go along so you can see some things more clearly. The head is very small, while the arms seem to connect to the body very far away.

    Anywhooooo....Keep up the great work.

    thanks pixie tricks! i really need someone else to look at the piece to point things out, so these comments are very helpfully. im gona try and fix some of the proportions on the arms and make the head a little bigger. with the head i wanted it to look like the armour is quite big on her but the head does look alittle too small even for that. ive also started to do daily self portraits which hopefully (when i get use to the mirror >.<) will help alot with expression . thanks again

    anyway here is some stuff from the weekend. there not to much to show but work and pub did take up alot of my time

    Hi !
    I really like your digitals.. espacially this one:
    http://conceptart.org/forums/attachm...1&d=1249587371
    The armour/costume looks awesome.. medieval, but also somehow modern at the same time. I would love to see more like this.

    your longer painting is looking good, nice vibrant colours, graphic style, though as Pixie Trick said the head is small. Also the hand holding the polearm seems to be the wrong way around, because in this position that is really uncomfortable. Sling a broom over your shoulder and you'll see what I mean.

    aha, so I was lured in here by the mandy icon. ADVERTISING WORKS

    great stuff in here and an excellent start. your digital paintings have a really nice texture to them and the longer paintings looking good (though her arm to the right looks pretty short, stiff and unnatural. the way you've painted the elbow joint, her forearm ends up looking way longer than her upper arm). top stuff though fella, keep up the good work

    thanks paddy! yeh i tried it out now and im defiantly going to change that. im also starting to have second thoughts about the head. i did make it a little bigger but i really wanted the Armour to look big on her which might be lost if i take it to far. im going to mess around with the size of that again.
    thanks gutss! lol peter mandelson is too funny not to have as an icon XD . and thanks for the comments about the arms. i think im going to try and get a reference for the arms to work from. that will hopefully make the arms feel more natural.



    some stuff from today. all studies (including the worst ever self portrait. i still need work at doing skin tone from life >.<).

    to make the armour look big on her shrink her body slightly but leave the head, at the moment she's 8 1/2 heads tall, which is big even for a male superhero. Go for about 7 and she'll look late adolescent with big armour on.

    cheerio

    p.s. nice brush work on the sp.

    hey man, you have some cool concepts here, and the self portraits look great. like other poeple have said, watch the proportions of your figures, but i already see improvement in your newer studies. keep at it!
