awesome style! great work so far... really enjoying it
Great stuff so far, you don't need much improvement but keep up the good work!
So far, I don't see what needs to be improved upon. I love your watercolor stuff, though.

I appreciate the willfull-ness to really attempt to push watercolors, it seems like recently people have been setting it aside as "old" or "boring" mearly personal observations from my specific area though, not a world view lol Keep it up !
Sketch back if you'd like...
My Sketchbook:Struggling to become and Artist XD
Boo! -- Thanks for looking.
Icedearth15876 and FightingSeraph -- Psh, there's always room for improvement. Thanks for looking!
adammelo -- Unfortunately, that's an attitude I've run across; for whatever reason, some people think watercolor equates to a little old lady hobby. Go figure.
I love using the color blue, probably too much. Gotta move past that.
A quick experiment with letting colors pool together.
Pushing myself to use some dry brush technique. Pose is referenced from Sarah Simblet's Anatomy for the Artist. Also, that FUCKING EAR. Argh.
The scanner butchered this, to a point; the rest was me. I was gunning for something more subtle than my usual globs of color, but I'm not happy with this. The background needs more changes in value. Also, next time I post, I'm going to have to show some hand sketches just to prove I'm not afraid of drawing them.
I like to warm up before painting any figurework with an abstract.

This is awesome. The last one in post #7 is especially trippy!
I'll be back.
Keeviin -- Thanks for looking.
Hands, as promised:
I need to study the joints of the fingers more; some of these are dangerously close to tube-territory.
I've always been fascinated with shapeshifters and their connection with their skin, from the idea of a selkie slipping free of its entire skin to a more half and half, Navajo skinwalker deal. I don't like this sketch, but I see promise in it. Will probably poke at it more later.
My Achilles' heel: clothing. I'm dipping my toes into the pool in the easiest way possible: a hat, so there's still a lot of anatomy to work on. I used a direct reference here, some random photo on the 'net.
I was not in a good mood when I painted this. In case you couldn't tell.
Experimenting with laying down some initial, heavy washes and then pulling out a figure.
These are absolutely great! Love the first one in #7 post.
qwerty12345 and mariusz -- Thanks for stopping by.
Greip -- Aha! Some critique! I took up your suggestion of trying a looser style, and I'm really enjoying the results so far. Thanks!
Wanted to achieve a very raw, visceral feeling with this. I wish I'd left a bit more contrast in value in the iris.
Hmm. This was just a pure experiment in combining a portrait-like style with abstract puddling of color that didn't follow the planes of the face. The vacant expression irritates me.
Fighting my phobia of clothing.
Of course there's always something to improve on...
let me try to pick out a really bad mistake you need to fix..
.. oh wait I can't.
you're really good lol
