    Those figure studies are beautiful. I also like your still life studies, but I feel like you're rushing them or giving up on them too soon. There are some symmetry/construction problems that should become obvious if you flip the canvas horizontally, and you're leaving a lot of jagged edges that could easily be cleaned up with a little patience. (The kettle's my favorite btw. I love the reflection on the side; very well done.)

    Thanks Diedra. I know I'm quick to throw things to the side sometimes. I get bored by life drawings sometimes but I'm doing these studies specifically to gain a better understanding of lighting, color and contrast. I think especially with the glass bottle you can see that the construction could be stronger though. I'm trying not to lost the form in my sketches when I render and polish a piece. Baby steps right?

    You've got some nice stuff. I especially like the figure drawings. In your paintings the main issue I see right now is too much blurryness. Not every edge needs to be sharp but too much softness hinders the readability.

    I want to give some crits on your last painting but first I would like to know what exactly you're trying to convey with the image so I'm not just giving your crits based on my taste. So could you tell me some more about the idea behind the character?

    Keep up the hard work!

    Strong figure drawings and still lifes. With regard to the digital painting, one tip from none other than Craig Mullins is to take a painting as far as you can with opaque brushes: try to block in all the correct shapes and values opaquely, and then polish them with transparent glazes or however you prefer afterwards. I think this is one secret to good rendering, too; you establish all your colors and values precisely from the outset, and then you can adjust the edges with much more control than you'd otherwise be able to.

    Just a thought. Work is looking good; keep grinding!
