    Nice studies man, your lighting on most of your paintings is great, giving you the sense of realistic scene. I' d try to have more sharp edges on them though, maybe use a more rough brush.
    The figure and plane studies are as always inspiring, such amount of work...
    Keep it up!

    the firefighter looks real tight. Good to hear you have work. (what´s an NDA for otherwise, aye?) The lower pic with the two dudes and the girl, the girl looks kinda unreal. A bit of a sharkface. And the left guy´s head looks a bit stuck on. Otherwise I am really impressed how things progress. Again, the firefighter is real tight. Kudos.

    A tutor once said to me: "Let your mind go!" and it didn´t come back.

    Sorry it took awhile to reply! I'm such a lazy cow when it comes to these things!

    Thanks for droppin by my SB.

    I can say you've got some great handling of materials here, man. I really like the realism with which you try to render things. Theres some stuff that looks off to me, but I can't really pinpoint what it is, The last update for example, the last picture of three people looks weird to me. I can't really say *what* looks off but it does. Still far superior to what i'm doing so good stuff!

    Back again after a while, been very busy with freelance work so I haven't had the time to update my sketchbook, but I'll definitely make more of an effort to keep up with my studies. With that said...

    Joe777k7: Thank you, I'm having a blast painting what I like and getting paid for it, it's a great feeling indeed so I'm just going to keep going!

    Ludic: Thank you.

    knut-: Thank you, handling light is my favorite part during the painting process so I'm glad it shows. You have a point about the edges, I'll definitely keep that in mind for future works.

    bbwolf: Thanks! NDA stands for non-discosure-agreement, it's pretty much standard procedure for projects that are in development. Glad you dig the firefighter, spent an insane amount of time on that one.

    julianR: Thanks and will do!

    Little-Maiden: No problemo Things tend to look off at first during the painting process, I'm not the best draftsman so I definitely need to continue working and improving; Thanks for your honesty.


    ...................................

    And for some updates! I recently completed some card game artwork for a project titled Arthurian Legendary Figures, below are some of the paintings I've completed. The card are relatively small so I didn't go too crazy with detail and refinement, but I did my best to give them a tight render.

































    And that'll be all for now!

    Eric-Anthony: Thank you, always enjoy working with rim lighting, really helps the figure pop!

    ..........

    Just finished scanning some pieces from my sketchbook, did a bunch of faces, nothing serious..I still need to practice more on the more foreshortened angles and such, those give me a bit more trouble....

    Fun cards. The armour came out really well.

    And no bums this time.


    I didn't think it was possible to be called an artist when you have nothing to say. It's like being a writer who publishes individual words as books and expects to be praised for it.

    Amazing studys, I really like the way you use the lighting in your digital art.
    I am not a fan of clean stuff even it looks amazing and I know what skills
    are behind. People keep telling me to slow down when I draw, but I usually
    like to make it sketchy, admire your line controll, amazing. Think I should
    try it sometimes to be clean in my lines expressions on paper.

    Very cool stuff in here, they eyes from this man or really POPING OUT.

    *critique* advice* help full links, is appreciated*

    Black Spot: Thank you, armor is very fun to paint because I can always go crazy with the contrast, which suits my style quite well I'd say.

    iven:
    Thank you, lighting is always fun for me to paint, it's the most fun element I'd say in regards to painting.

    kayness:
    Lies, I'm a cyborg.

    Just finished a study of a statue bust. I'm very comfortable with drawing and painting portraits, but I need more practice on more foreshortened angles, hence the study.



    Here's the WIP if you're interested:

    Once again great dedication man.
    This last study is cool but it lacks of highlights.
    Don't be afraid to draw with big contrast areas (i don;t know how the original picture was, just saying).
    Keep up man!

    knut: Thank you, will keep that in mind when doing these studies. I tend to overdo highlights I think so I tried not to go too crazy in that regard, but it appears I held back too much for my own good.

    I'm having an artistic high today, below are some more studies:



    WIP:



    A figure study:





    ......... and that'll be all for today, thanks for looking!

    Been sketching like a madman as of late. Tackled general anatomy as well as some Loomis head studies which were very useful. Here are some pages:

    TNiznet: Much appreciated

    Kayness:

    ............

    Managed to do a few studies/speedpaints, mostly of statues which proved to be very useful. I'm trying to improve my skill at depicting faces in more foreshortening than I'm used to, which is a welcome challenge.











    Some steps:




    ..........

    and that'll be all!

    jacob.dunn.art: Thank you, I always have a blast drawing and painting portraits.

    Mike L: Thanks, glad to hear all my work is paying off! Nice to hear you enjoy the steps as well, I make it a habit to save multiple files so as might as well post the WIP for them.

    Aragah: Thanks and will do!

    Eric-Anthony:
    Thank you, I'm honored to hear my words inspired you to tackle caricatures!

    liquorbleu:
    Appreciate it

    ........

    Some more sketches.... I'm currently tackling the head, will be doing serious studies of the forms and features throughout the month, as well as handling general figure work. I noticed my figures are getting too stiff so I'll make of an effort to do gestures for the time being.

    I started on a portrait of a friend but didn't quite finish it as I wasn't completely satisfied with it, except maybe for the colors. Here it is:

    And a photostudy of a still from 'Alice In Wonderland', roughly 1 hour :

    wow! I love your characters, reminds me of the portraits in the game Neverwinter Nights. Your use of colour and light is just amazing, you´re great with faces. Need to practice some more on the bodies though. Keep it up!

    Wow, I love your sketches! This is definitely the kind of thing I need to do! I struggle to sit and just sketch figure studies though haha.

    I really like some of your sketches from imagination; you can really tell you've taken the knowledge from the studies you've been doing, and then warped them to create really great-looking characters.

    Solid portraits man. I like your pencil studies, you ve got a nice line quality. The strokes look really fine and confident, something i lack . The head studies are looking good.

    My only crit would be that the skin in the portraits are looking very smooth and soft for most of the portraits. You nailed the rendering part, you could add a bit of textures on the skin. But that still comes down to preference. Keep up the hard work.

    sense of purpose
