I also struggle with environments, hence why I rarely do them, but one thing I have found is that it helps to have clean hard lines, if you notice the above enviro, everything is soft.
I noticed some of your quick head drawings are great with colour but they are lacking in the proper application of light and shadow. I'd do a paintover on one of them for you to illustrate what I mean but I'm not sure if I should.
I do like your use of colour in your characters though.
I would be really happy for you to do a paintover if you would be willing!
I do have a hard time working with tones and keeping good tonal ranges.
Thanks for the words, and thanks for stopping by!
SOoo, this isn't necessarily done. I am still looking at it and mulling it over.
Figured I would post anyhow..
I intend to be myself. I don't have much experience being anyone else. =]
New stuff, yeah yeah... I really could use a job, or some more work... Whatevs...
This first one is a logo that I did for a newly opened jewelry shop on Facebook.
Fifi's Fineries. Here is a link, not sure if it will work without logging into facebook though, https://www.facebook.com/FifisFineries
The rest of these are concepts for the not yet released "BARBARIANS!" miniature line by Two Raven Games.
Thanks much! =] I can't believe that they got rid of the "thank" button. what is up with that?
Here is a painting I just finished, as well as some shots of a zbrush model I finished just a bit ago.
Posting it here to keep this thread just barely breathing...
I have really gotten sick of how dead this site is...
The weekly challenges are barely limping, there isn't as much good interaction.
That is not to say that I haven't gotten some great feedback,
but I feel like the people who post are really starting to be a small holdout of the past armies of amazing artist that used to grace these halls.
love the outfit of the girl in #229! pretty cool stuff, the whole painting as well!
and yeh, this site isnt much alive anymore, its really to bad, and i dont know where to go for feedback if not here D: having a blog or tumblr isnt the same thing as a nice community/forum :/
also, very cool zbrush model!
awesome characters! and that 3D model is pretty impressive I really like the snow white piece! Awesome composition and dwarf faces And I should probably not try to give you any advice, since I´m barely capable of drawing a straight line, but I feel like you could make the snow white piece even cooler than it already is by adding some depth and some color (I know she´s supposed to be ´snow white´ but her skin is going to catch at least some color from surrounding elements).. I´m terribly sorry if I ruined the piece, You are free to totally ignore this

Thanks, that outfit was fun to design! I was trying to think what a witch would give her stepdaughter to wear, and that is what I cooked up.
I guess I should stop complaining about the place being dead, and either post more myself or go somewhere else.
-stinkypanda Heyya Panda, thanks for dropping by. Glad you like my stuff! =]
Here is the CHOW I am working on. The prompt is Babysitter from Hell.
I included the wip pictures because, why not....

Reason: Didn't see stinkypanda's post.
-stinkypanda Hey again, I missed that you did the paintover somehow. Thanks for that, I like hearing critiques and opinions.
I did think about that but then it occurred to me that since the fire was behind her, there really wouldn't be any warm light on her face.
I probably could have darkened her like you did, but I was playing with the idea that the gem on her chest was a lightsource, I don't think that I pulled that off well though..
Thanks again for the critique and all. I really really appreciate it!
Here is a character named Violet Tuesday and some sketches I did in ink.
-NeonPoweredFirefly Thanks much! I would love to do more in that style. You will probably see something soon.
Not today though... =/
-stinkypanda Hah, thanks! I did the color on those in colored acrylic ink.
Oh and I just wanted you to see this, http://www.conceptart.org/forums/sho...d.php?t=273093
They said basically exactly what you did when I posted this in the Critique section! XD
Good eye! =]
Soooo, here is a portrait I did for a woman of her son, at three different ages.
And here is a test of semi-realistic portrait painting from imagination. It doesn't really look right even though I kept working on it...
