    Rotor: You're very wellcome! Thanx for advise, I tried to desaturate area around the horizon, is it better now?

    Also, I've added shadows to icons, as devastacio suggested, but I'm not sure if it works right for this kind of icons... Maybe for another set it'll works better and maybe I should try not blurry one...
    Next some thumbnails and wierd skin tone study during lunch break )

    Hey!

    These 2 icons are looking awesome!
    Very nice clean painting and good colors
    One problem: I can't identify the first thing. Is it a shield?

    Greetings Silwynar; Keep it up

    Silwynar: Thanx ) The first thing is simple as it is - it's a wheel )

    Well, here is some boring update... I did some studies while looking at Vilppu's lections, and I'd recommend him to anyone who can't attend drawing classes. He's really great and extrimely helping at the point where I am. The last one couple of life doodles in a pub before my friends came ^_^

    Mmmm... Nice drawings. If I would start to draw seriously, I guess I'd do somewhat similar stuff (after I would get the skills of course), at least I would love to
    I didn't looked at every pages yet but what I saw was totally to my liking... *shining eyes*
    I can't give crits, I just popped in quickly and I'm not good enough to spot flaws in your stuff so easily

    Hey there,

    Thanks a lot for the encouraging words at my sb. i appreciate it.

    those icons look much better now. i like them. if you made the bottom of the map and the wheel a wee bit darker it could have added to the realism as well . but dont worry about it anymore.

    environment at #181 looks really cool.nice color use here. i have no crits so just gonna say 'a job well done'!

    Well, lets see some more cool stuff. oh btw i looked through your entire sb and i think you have improved a lot in painting. so keep up the good work mate.

    great winter themed paintings, especially the one with the little girl, those digi paintings are looking great overall the last one in post #181 is a bit too green, you could vary them by adding some browns & blues maybe, great thumbnails by the way, i find those so hard to do. nice work the Bridgeman & Vilppu studies too, keep posting, you're making great progress

    DRAW UNTILL IT HURTS
    AND THEN DRAW SOME MORE

    Good improvements over this thread!
    I read you had trouble with mountains- I read in a book: Elemental magic - about animating FX to treat waves and mountains in a similar way.
    Big ocean waves - not wimpy pond waves.


    If you can sneak a peak through the book (I found it at the library) the passage might help. Sometimes just finding a backwards way to look at something can be helpful.
    Here's an amazon link:

    OmertA: Thank you!
    shiNIN: Thanx )))
    devastacio: Thanx a lot for such good words)
    miycko: Thank you! Yes, about this green skin, forgot to mention - the goal was to make GREEN skin, I thought it is so weird that I could try something different from orange-pink-yellow etc. Thumbnails aren't hard at all, you just show main flow of subject... Those Vilppu lections helped me in that too ) And thanx for good words about this winter girl, glad you like it!
    oma: Hope to do more! But maybe not so soon, I still have a lot things to study
    Rhubix: Thanx a lot for the book, hope I can find it. My mountains still sux... (

    A bit of anatomy and color study from imagination... trying to figure out all this stuff with contrary colors, depth, value and so on...

    seriously nice torso studies. Often when you post something like this you will think "here are just some boring studies"but they are very useful for people looking at your sb to see what stage you are roughly at with your pencil work. Any crits and tips aimed at your pencil work are going to have positive effect on your painting too, so its win win for you.

    To be honest the bridgman stuff looks good, and from the size it is I can't see anything obvious to crit on. You are doing nice line variation in weight and width. No crits, just keep doing what you're doing!

    May I ask what size these sketchbook pages are? (in paper that is)

    ThomasM: Thanx! I'm glad this doodles can be useful for somebody, this really moves me forward! I usually do this studies on A4 paper, sometimes a little bigger then A4 (anyway my scanner is for A4 size only), than I mix several pages (4 or 2 usually), make file smaller and that's all)

    More anatomy, life stuff, and another try to get skintones from ref (you can find it here: http://www.conceptart.org/forums/sho...d.php?t=199669) took me about 1 hour...

    Oh skintones... I spent so many hours to try to figure out them... I'm not sure I have much idea at this point but I keep trying.
    You made her skin too reddish but her skin definitely look like skin and is warm and nice and pleasing It would look like as a sunset shot but when you highlighted her right cheek, it lost the red it had on on its other side and it doesn't make much sense. It jumped to me so I mentioned. But it's a cool start, I'm looking forward to your faces in the future! I love portraits
    I even recognized her after some time... She's Anya, one of my favourite models from gracefulnudes.com She's too thin but very very graceful and adorable...
    Nice studies by the way

    shiNIN: Thanx! Yes, I've looked at her in another monitor - and WOOOOO so reddish skin! On mine it's just a little pinky. Other colors look ok though... Didn't know somebody could recognise her, because I mostly used her for shadow referense, thats why my work not so similar to original.
    raminafshari: He-he, I'm really glad, come here often! (and I try to post more often too )
    qlotzan: Thank you!
    tbaldree: Thanx a lot )

    Character concept I've made without reference.... So had big trouble with his hands.... Finally I've became angry and left them as they are... Would appreciate any C&C

    I'll be glad to hear any comments and critics (be so hard as you like ^_^ ) from you and also I'm trying to help if I can
    Do you mind me asking what tablet you used and with what software?

    ooh I like that waterfall! But remember there would be some reflection of that white in the water below.

    keep up the studies, and...ski-fi? Where's the snow?

    hey ^^ Nice sketchbook ! For your last piece, i think that the values are too light, not enough dark than in real, you must add more contrast between the shadow area and light area ! And for the colors, i can see that you are always using the same saturation for all the painting ! if your light is warm, you should really use warmer tones for the light, and colder tones for the shadow ! anyway, the figure is really good in proportions, and fitting well on the ground ! And for the hands : well, if you're having troubles drawing hands, just draw them until you can ^^

    Great anatomical studies! It's always good to study from those guys - my teacher has us do it all the time but no one seems to take it seriously. It's awesome to see that someone does, it'll help you improve like a boss~

    Good luck with your journey for improvement!

    Great work! I'm really enjoying your studies, and I really like that you mix it up. Sometimes it's faces and other anatomy, and sometimes it's a computer mouse or something like that. I need to do more studies and try to focus on the overall technique, as you have done very successfully.

    Wow. That's all from imagination? I'm really impressed. I like the way you did the fringe on the dress, and the frayed end of the shawl. Very good!

    Very nice SB you have. Great stuff and useful link in the first post I red I'm definitely subscribing you xd. I think that paying so many attention to imaginary stuff is good choice until you remember to do ref from time to time Still you need to know how things work to be able to paint them xd Anyway, I'm can't wait to see another update, cheers
