EDIT: for some reason all my old progress went missing...?
Due to that all my old process went missing i made a fresh sketchbook here!

John Silva! Ouvi-te a falar com o Dave no Crimson Daggers e percebi logo que eras portugues
Excelentes estudos. Aquele kiwi esta' mesmo muito bom.
Amanha estarei presente no teu live stream.
Nice work in here John Your studies are coming along nicely. I'd suggest using a harder brush at first in order to nail those values. You don't have to use a 100% opacity on it, just enough for you to lay down that base value. Then you can lay in the darks and lights and it will look more accurate. Hope this helps
your stuff's pretty good, i'm liking it so far , though i can see much room for improvement. On your latest picture, the woman's proportion's are slightly off; her arms need to be slightly longer (the finger tips are supposed to reach about halfway down her thigh). Also the picture feels a bit flat, you need something to add a bit more sense of depth to it. Maybe some shadowed objects in the background behind the fog of that creature behind her. Though i must say, the colors really fit the mood of the picture, and the woman's expression looks as if she can sense something coming but doesn't know what yet.
Very well done, keep going!
No one looks good drawing on lined paper. HOW ARE YOU LOOKING GOOD DRAWING ON LINED PAPER???
I'm loving your last two digital paints, the dragons curling around the ear are particularly awesome. Can't wait to see how that last image turns out It's got nice atmosphere.
Now i just layed out basic colors with an overlay layer, next i will paint over everything and do color correction etc... Still don't know what to do with the Mob on the right :/, well lets see!
Haha, thanks for your kind words! the weird thing is that i feel that i draw better on lined paper then clean one.
more to come thanks for looking at my SB
