    Hi there^^
    I'm glad I stumbled upon that SB because it's really awesome! I actually wouldn't have much to critizise, but since you asked for that more than once in your posts I thought I might search a few points
    I'm sorry if the following seems to harsh now; but I think you already know that you're good. However, there are always things to improve.

    The lightning is very good, but I think the light ball the archer is holding in your first picture in the second post should affect more than just the archer's face (i.e. the shadows on the ground?), because it look quite bright. Might be wrong, though.
    The two faces on the left in post #16 have awfully long throats, but they're the only ones. The women's legs seem sometimes too long as well, but I might not be objective there since I got quite short legs myself^^

    I think what you should practise the most are textures and edges, but you already mentioned it yourself.
    The edges should be sharper, they are sometimes a bit undefined and fuzzy.
    The textures don't really convince me. The knight's armour in the fifth picture of post #6, for example, looks too soft for metal. Just compare it to that photo:
    http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedi...r_zeughaus.jpg
    Same goes for the very first picture, for the wood and the leaves there.
    http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedi...arten_fg02.jpg
    Just search for some references for the textures, that might already help a lot.

    Your colour usage is awesome. Love how you capture the material properties of different objects.

    AAA frate! de unde ai aparut!?
    Foarte tari, lucrarile si schitele . Imi place ca nu te-ai dat batut si ai continuat.
    De criticat nu prea am ce sa critic , mai multa atentie la forma si contrast.


    Salut!

    @ paperhead. Thanks for the encouragement. Aside the lighting though there is not much to look at

    @ cgfelker: Thenk you. I hope to get in the groove and do some finished coloured digital work, but first need to get a better grasp of the basics .

    @Zorcron thank you, will go back to drawing bones and muscles in the next days in the sketchbook so you will get to see them

    @diego: Thanks for the encouragement

    @Taivas: Thank you. Will look for a schi-fi based CHOW and will let it rip then


    @scholz thank you


    @llex_paul. Thank you. Your observation about time and detail is spot on . Still I should detail more .

    @Mischeviouslittleelf: Thank you. Will be avoiding colors and digital for a while so as not to hide the flaws behind the strengths anymore .

    @kinbgkostas: Thank you I will certainly try

    @sourgasm: thank you

    @Icecold: Thank you. Will press on .

    @Tagtraum: Thank you for the critic eye and the encouragement and advice Will pay more attention to material rendering and textures.

    @Huey Yeng. Thank you. I still have a way to go in material properties area

    @abhorsen950 Thank you .


    @capital G: Thank you


    @Giorge. Merci . Not giving up just yet, there' still some fight left in me .




    Even got stars awarded, but in all honesty, I am not deserving them ... I am at best at 3 and a half overall, and I intend to prove it in the following posts.



    So here are some sketches that I have been doing over the past few days to get in the groove again, not really anything imaginative, just "hunting" for the human figure and trying to educate my unruly hand to get some structures right (

    I have purposely avoided digital stuff, where I can come back correct everything 10 times over.. realign the eyes stuff like that, and also avoided color (because is easy to "fake" it with color), and drawn most of the stuff with a thick lead... not to get drawn in details and mostly no 0.5 clickers ) ,

    First set are from imagination based on what I know, the second set have some reference as starting point, and the lower dude where I abandoned the rendering is al photo-reference (with a 0.5 clicker).

    Will appreciate critique anywhere, anytime .

    Nice figures. I agree with you that colors can be easily abused to hint details while raw lineart is one of the basic in depicting a subject. If the lineart can be read easily then the coloring process should be much easier.

    Mmm, seeing as you asked for some harsh critique, let's take a looky...
    Great confidence with the pencil btw, and your proportion is really inspiring to me. =)

    The last guy sitting down, placing his chin on his knuckles, I think the neck muscles are actually placed correctly, but they seem maybe slightly off, I dunno, they just don't feel quite right, it's good work though.

    His right arm muscle, as it tapers off at the end, going to the forearm, I dunno, I think that muscle seems a little off maybe, just a thought, although it does seem to be hanging down, it's a bit subjective.

    His right knee too, it appears that there's a chip taken out if you look carefully, maybe define the edges or shadow there some more.

    You could squeeze a bit of extra quality out of your line work, making lines meet up to complete the forms.

    Eh, well that's mostly nitpicking, your pieces really read well, it's nice to see your work. Thank you for sharing. =)

    Your character sketshes are freaking amazing! I like your take on anatomy as well. I see a lot of anime influence, but you balanced it with western style very well.

    Some great stuff in your portfolio man. Thanks for the crit btw.

    I am totally digging your color and the process of your paintings. I notice that the heads of a good portion of your figures are too small. Enough for it to mess with me. Other than that great stuff. Best of luck.
