sup bman, the only way you can get over depression is too keep fighting those demons and draw until you bleed !! after that you will deserve a couple of hours of break, or maybe a day. Nice colors in those last pics, something is a bit off with the feets of the first guy with the fireball, his toes looks kinda sawed off, pretty hard to nail in perspective i know, why not do some foot studies ? you seem to understand hands a lot better than feets ! keep it up !
looks great, playa. however, his arm that's extended is quite out of whack. the direction of the upper arm and the direction of the forearm are going in like, two toooootally different directions. honestly, what would fix that is changing the shadow, wrapping the wrinkles and the end of the sleeve in a different way. i'll paintover to show you what i mean.
*ok, it's really rough, but you should get what i mean. really, the arm should be moved and the perspective rotated (more toward the front, so that you see more of the fingers and the front of the hand), but that's whatever. hope this helps.

purb36 - Thanks bro! Your a life saver! Man I could just hug you! I felt something was terribly wrong there and you just fixed it with a speedy paintover! Thanks! I love CA so much iit kinda hurts right now.
JailHouseRock2 - Thanks! You are epic!
So I folowed Purbs paintover and tried to fix the arm and It feels so much better now. This is a slightly bigger version of the painting. I dont want to post the full-size one online.
Yes, yes..i totally agree with purb on that one! And i think even after adjusting it as it is, i think now the shoulder-chest part needs some working on also those folds on the left leg, when it comes down to it, it needs some workin'
nice values indeed, and i think the colours are really nice too!! very cool!
Sketchbook - I really appreciate comments and critique, please visit!
Icecold - Could you explain why the blue is wrong. I worked with the blue as a dominant schape and used a cool color to contrast the warm. If you were to draw an shape on the color wheel It be a triangle with blue,gren and red. I heard that there are no wrong colors just different effects of what you pic. Although I like the orange Its not as intresting and its not the same result. Thanks for your input.
