    Everything looks really good dude, but Im agreeing with Socks a lot here on the Pirate painting. You seem to paint in a very formulaic way, and you paint that way all over. Everything seems to have that photoshoppy hard round brush look to it where you not going into detail. Like the head and shoulders look good because the detail is giving it a certain feel. But where its looser, like the background, it all seems a little formulaic and un-interesting.
    I would strongly recommend looking into working with more textured brushes and ones that have that real world painterly look to them. It will give the areas which are out of focus a less stale look to them. Just some simple brushes which have a little texture running through them, nothing too fancy.

    Its sounds like a tough crit but its pretty minor, everything else you've got going is pretty good. Just the way you paint could be spiced up a little bit here and there.
    Keep up the good work.

    SirGreenSock - Thanks! Yeah your very right about the materials, one of the many things I messed up in that painting. I started a repaint and very quickly I began to fix most problems, Il post that later and some more excuses as to why I messed up so bad lol!

    LAL - Thanks man! Its good to know I have one! ha

    PHATandy - I totally agree with you man! You know when I was painting it I wasnt really thinking of the things I had set out to do, you put it really well, it was very formulaic. You know I think partly the problem was last week I was sick for the whole week, and I think I finished up that painting when I was beginning to get sick Im not sure, either way Ive fixed the problems now. Although the textures I did not even think of at all! Thanks so much for mentioning that! That was something I thought about alot over the week I was sick. When I was painting the air captain not once did I think, will some one want to look at this? So basically Ive started to think alot more about how I can make my paintings pleasing. Oh and please dont hold back, the crit wasnt harsh, it actually made me smile... weirdly, I like being told how I suck haha.

    Heres a wip of ChoW 206. Going to do a proper post soon, Ive just been lazy about posting.

    Love the design of the character so far, the face and beard are awesome!

    I dont know if you meant the proportions to look a bit cartoony, but if not, you oughta beef up his legs more. His feet are rather small, and with the size of his head the way it is, it really has a bit of a Johnny Bravo proportion to him. Think part of the oddness is also that his head is fully fleshed out...and nothing else is? makes it almost seem like the head is floating or stuck-on.

    I should note taht you are reallly improving with each post, its really great to see!

    teapo - Thanks man Those costume sketches were fun! glad you like em, you too teapo!

    SirGreenSock - Thanks Thanks for pointing that out man, I did add "beef up legs" to the list after reading this. The floating head thing was always a half Idea in my head, I mean I wanted it to be implied but not neccesarily show it. I was thinking of the spirit in "Spirited Away", the one they wash and then hes just a floating old head, you know the one? But man his feet were tiny! HAHA I had to change them. Thanks man im trying pretty hard

    Repaint of ChoW 204 WIP
    Ive finally got around to doing my own paintover of the last ChoW. Because after doing it and immidiately realising ALL the mistakes I made I thought I shouldnt just leave it and say lesson learned. I want to make this image work!
    The three main things that went wrong were:
    Didnt paint it thinking of how it would come across to others
    Never got around to the second light source
    Started everything off very dark expecting to build up, but that led everything to be very muted down and uninteresting
    So heres what ive fixed so far. It can still go farther. I feel like If I can make this one perfect that will help me in future paintings. Also it will hopefully improve my eye for errors.

    Artofinca - Thanks man

    Every now and then I begin to think, whats the point of doing studies! This either means Im getting bored of them, or, Im not being challenged by them. I think rearranging my approach to them will solve both problems. This one was fun but old men are always fun.

    I like your studies a lot. I think if you leave some of that roughness to your final pieces, it could work better. Keep rocking!

    Hazart - Moy! Youre totally right, and I expect soon the sketches and finished images will mold together better heh. I think what Ive been doing sometimes is just over rendering without thinking.
