    Ah sweet, your character icon gets visually beat up as your health goes down? Like Dome Wars, I always loved that. Some good junk here man!

    Long time didn’t see some huge breasted female sketchbook,
    I was missing this so much in my life.
    Thought to give you some references for that badly beaten
    up game character. The face get more deformed and the eyes
    get shut when the orbital bone is broken.

    The work here has definitely gone up a notch since I've been gone. You are working much better with tones, and the softer value transitions are also looking great.

    As for the head, I agree that the cuts and bruises are looking a touch artificial right now. But somehow, as with most of your work, the overall effect looks quite good with the style. Keep on doing what you're doing, I'll try to drop by more often.

    Great refs Plissken. It's hard to find good refs for injuries

    And Nicky, that's a great skin tone. Definitely a level-up in terms of rendering. Skin is so hard to do too, it's as much about the texture of the skin as a sorta plaster cast shading thing. Nice one.

    Hey Nicky!
    Like where your work is going with the softening of the brushes, much more fluidity to your images. Good stuff!

    Mike L - hey Mike! thanks for noticing man yea i have this horibble habit of fleshing ot my images with a hard edged brush and then rarely switch back to the soft edge to blend... i have a tendancy to try and blend with the hard edge on low opacity it makes no sense... haha but im trying to force myself to switch brushes more to become better at soft forms and hard forms and transitioning between the two .

    Lê Ngọc Anh Thư - thanks man! quite the opposite from your works haha, but to each their own

    ----------------------

    just finished up this final alien model for my senior game project! two more to go and i feel like i learned a ton from this first one, so they should start speeding up now!

    NB you never disappoint. How did you develop your drawing style? Was it conscious or something that just evolved? I would love any advice you could give me.

    Looking for a mentor
    If you have a moment I would love any tips or critiques that might help me improve my work.

    phatbuddha + Samurai_Nik - thanks dudes! my style was something that evolved (and still is) mostly because of the style of art that i am drawn to. i have always been a huge fan of comics, so that really shaped my style early on, but any linework is something that i really appreciate. always have. whenever i used to draw i would always have some of my favorite artists work on the screen, or in a book next to me, so my i would always try to emulate different styles. but later on, i just sort of developed on my own, but it has and probably always will still retain at least some of that old flavor to it.

    some of my biggest influences have been :

    N8 Van Dyke

    Greg "Craola" Simkins

    Katsuya Terada

    Takehiko Inoue

    Leinil Francis Yu

    and about a million more too ha.

    but dont worry too much about style because its something that mainly develops through things like comfort. how you sit. how you hold the pencil. certain line sweeps that youll inevitably repeat a million times over. personal aesthetics. and the type of artwork you love to look at. but if you really want to try to develop a style quickly, i would maybe suggest trying to replicate some of your favorite artists works, and pay attention to the shapes they repeat, the way they draw certain things (especially figures), and how they distort reality to suit their needs. if you can see these things and recognise them in others works, then you will be able to repeat some of them in your own. doing this enough will ultimately lead to a style that is basically a big huge melting pot of others, but you will start to make it your own as well.

    but dont worry, this style thing is something that develops over time. youll find one.

    -------------------------------

    wip for the DSG thing. decided to ditch the other one because the god damn painter file shorted out and fucked up my cpu for a bit. soooo i just felt like starting over ha. maybe one day ill go back to it cause painting over zbrush sculpts is hella fun!
