    just because it's a 'sketchbook' doesn't mean you can't show finished stuff too~

    Im curious about this first one. Why the grey bg color? Did you do the whole thing in b&w first and then color layer? or did you paint color on grey bg? I always find it easier to start on a natural BG like Brown or a dark blue. makes a more finished feel and helps with colors. Just keep painting, You seem to be doing great with this.

    Thank you very much for chekni my sketchbook bMan|!
    The first one has a grey background cause it was a study, and mostly I start with gray bg, but now i ll try with the colours u use, it could be much better =9
    However I started this work directly with colours, not black and white.

    that was probably the first non horrible study I did. It s 6 months Im doin this so any tip is very useful to me. thx again !

    that study of the woman is awesome! very nice treatment for the skin and hair and clothes!
    the other pieces feel a little rough, some of the proportions are off without that looking on purpose. might be a good idea to base these on actual poses if you're not doing that already.
    it also feels like you're putting in too much detail overall, there's no real focus to the more elaborate pieces. it's all the same density overall, nothing to really draw the eye to specific points

    u r defintly right man! it s one of the thing Im lookin to learn bringing eyes in a specific point. I know the 2 orc studies r too much detailed , and it s useless for studies, the fact is that it 6 months im in this kinda art, and especially n the beginning doing details like metal spikes, clothes, leather and different kinds of metallic parts was a chance to learn render..however thank you for the feedback, u been very nice and clear!

    lookin for your feedbacks again, they will be precious to me! so much to learn =)

    Well okay... firstly, you're much greater skill than me.

    BUT I can also point out small things...

    1) Use KISS method sometimes... (Keep it simple stupid). Sometimes overdetailed TAKES away from the image. Use detail in a useful way.

    2) Your color palette for the most part seems muted in almost all of your images. Try to grab a four-color palette for most of your images and then play off of those colors. You can find some very interesting results the more you practice with it.

    Anyway, just small notes I notice right off.

    I'll be watching though, you have MUCH potential!

    Great sense of tone with b/w. For monochrome pics I'd suggest trying out using a dark slightly dark brown as the darkest shade. It'll give you a feel for how to incorporate a softer lit environment as well as leave the door open for tightening up shades by adding say a dark red, or dark blue on top of the brown.

    For Color (which i've just started myself) I've found doing some focused paints of simple colorful objects to be helping the most. Take a moment with observation to pick up on at least 3-4 colors and put them down first in hard strokes. After that render the object to a recognizable state and move on to do another one.

    Great SB and looking forward to some more updates!

    you have a good sense of shapes and rendering details. I'm missing backgrounds. you really need to tie the characters to an enviroment to make castlights and highlights pop. now it looks strange and unfunished. try and just make some abstract bg's if you dont feel confident enough for detailed enviroments. But its important that you build some depth in your peices. Keep up the good work mate.

    a new orc portrait

    ok for some time I ll focus on full characters, so I imposed my self this is the last orc portrait for a while..I liked it b/W, so for now no colour on this boy.

    Sadly ( like always however in advanced rendering phase, I realized i made a couple of terrible mistakes..next time, next time!
