    Wow Chow, it's always a pleasure to see your new updates You inspire me to do studies like this. I know you say to critique, but.. I can't really see anything wrong in terms of values and anatomy. I guess the only thing might be that you might want to paint animals too, since those are anatomical/technical studies as well and will help build your library for future monsters

    oh, and come join the spartan gestures and daily sketch group sometime!

    pretty fun getting into the daily sketches, isn't it awesome seeing your stuff, inspirational!
    for the wakaw: i'm not sure if it's the most efficient method (always experimenting) but the way i did was like this:

    - just used a hard brush with near black/black to lay down a thick swatch of 'feathers'. for the big feathers i only made the outline. i think in photoshop the brush needs a pressure/opacity setting tweak so that the line fades like that at the end of the sweep. after that i played with color layers on multiply/overlay/luminosity and then another pass with white lines for highlights.
    - zooming out a lot helps to control the line sweep, so my hand doesn't have to go all over the place. it feels different on paper than a wacom, for sure.. its easier to zoom out to make those big sweeping lines.
    -i use SAI so for the final touches i used the 'brustle' brush on smudge - i think that the bristle brush in photoshop will accomplish the same thing though, or a custom smudge brush with a bristle setting.

    if this doesn't make any sense let me know

    it always feels good to go back to pencil i think nice study.

    may i ask what kind of brush/settings you used for the scifi spaceship, and the gundam? it looks so crisp, without looking too overly-sharp.

    the way you painted the fabric in the piece of the man holding the pot/urn thing was incredible, as are your figure paints. I was also especially struck by the shoe on page 1 - really nice

    i love the colors- and especially his eyes! they're so intense. i always enjoy looking back at your people paintings to help myself understand values of the human form better, sometimes it helps me to look at someone's paintings besides studying life.

    also i did send a long reply via message - didn't want to spam your sketchbook with a big paragraph.

    what up machine! thanks a lot mate, yes, I watch tons of stuff from others everyday too. I got your message, thanks for taking the time to answer, btw you can spam here all you want, this is what I made this sketchbook for, I want to read oppinnions and discuss that kind of stuff so we can all learn from each other, next time don't hesitate to write whatever u want.
    I wanted to try Sai but I got a mac recently and theres no mac version of Sai, shame, I was very intersted, check this dude: http://mrdream.deviantart.com/ paints great with Sai.
    I'm also trying to get into painter but I find it too overwhelming for now, the brushes are amazing tho.
    take care

    Ya' know, it's always hard for me to critique someone who is way past the level I'm currently at, but there is one little thing that I noticed about your black & white studies... they consistently lack a full value range (meaning the highlights aren't as bright as they should be). I don't know if it's intended or not, but they seem kind of flat because of it. On the other hand, your pencil work and some of your color studies are down right exceptional! You obviously draw really well and have a good understanding of the fundamentals, so maybe it's just me. LOL

    Anyway, keep up the fantastic work and thanks for stopping by my SB.
