    Right, here be the colours. Some people see it in a kind of blueish tint, cold colours. But it really isn't... does anyone see it? And of course all constructive crits welcome. Thanks

    End of uni, so had tons of stuff to do, plus now having some trouble with student finance not wanting to lend me money for the first year so am a bit worn out from that but hopefully will have more time and energy to get back to painting again.
    Anyway, here's something I'm working on atmmnt, I think she's kind of done (colouring will come at the end), now I just need to figure out a background. Was thinking of a city in ruins and a river between her and the city, she could be in a destroyed building or something.

    Right, so changed a few textures and added some colour, off to something new again. (I know it's not much of a sketch but when I start something I can't stop working for hours on it ><)

    Hi Ancientdrake, thanks for stopping by my SB and thanks for the nice words
    You're off to a good start here, like the top image. Your character in the bottom one looks good, but be careful about painting one part (character or something else) separately first and then adding something else, I have seen many examples of people rendering nice parts of images, but it ends up looking like several different images stitched together because the lighting isn't consistent. Yours look okay, but just a thing to think about.

    PS. Can I ask why the illustration part of Uni is a disappointment?

    No problem Jskotte ^_^
    Finally some critique! Thank you. Yeah I was afraid it might end up like that as well and I still do see the character-background thing, I'll try to keep it in mind, started working on some videos from "The Structure of Man" (even thou a lot of people don't seem to like it) and will do the same with Vilppu's videos plus gonna try to go through the Loomis books. (This is gonna take a loooong time..)

    And as far as the uni goes, well I don't really want to whine, but it's just not illustration at all. I mean they haven't taught us ANYTHING yet from the illustration course, nothing, the only good thing in the uni is that they made a live drawing class available to us from a different module (and my course teachers didn't even know anything about it, it's just sad..and it was supposed to be the uni of the year or something..uni of the year my ass..)

    Hey there. Really great start to your sketchbook.
    To serve my opinion of the post #3: personally I think that the picture is too desaturated, (talking mainly about skintones). The reason for this is probably that the original is B&W. The colors appear flat, especially in the face area. To be honest, I wouldn´t normally notice, but I´m solving skintone problems in my paintings right now. Otherwise I like the sense of movement.

    I´m seriosly in love with the leather in #4#5 and #6. Makes me wanna do something like that.

    Last two posts are really nice too. Groovy.

    Well, thats it, see you around and good luck!

    Right, here's the b/w and color version, I just can't seem to get the right skin tone onto her, always comes out weird whether it's on overlay or color.

    Right, so here's another one, wasn't sure really if I should add the glowing thingy creature or not as it kind of takes the viewers focus out of the girl. Bah >< Here's the BW, colour and colour with wisp thing.

    Hi, you are doing some nice things here, keep it up!

    I would recommend doing some studies of fabric as the clothes on your figures are flattening them a bit. Took at some old master drawings to see how they handled it. You should notice that they always allude to the forms under the fabric (weather on or not they would be visible in the real world) this helps to keep the figure rounded. Also look at where the fabric bunches and falls...anatomy will help there too.

    Thanks for the critique man! Yeah, cloths aren't my strongest point, thanks for the tip, will do! I do try to form the cloths somehow, but always get lost in the end, it does get a bit frustrating ><

    Well haven't really done much of late... keep getting distracted by things.. lastly it was SC II ><
    Anyway, this is what I have, tried colouring with just straight off colours, but I think b/w for me atmmnt is still the best option in learning. But hey, at least I didn't spend hours and hours on these works ><

    Right, so something new. I thought she needed some background and the first thing that came to my head was tango and some LasVegaish kind of light behind her... so yeah... ><

    Umm right so for about last 5 days been working on this, it's a tribute to 3 soldiers who escaped communism from (back in the day) Czechoslovakia, now Czech republic. (a two tailed white lion is one of the symbols and also a symbol of the highest state award, which they didn't get. yet) Anyway here it is.

    Umm, dunno how to put "nudity" now in the topic...althou I think there's nothing wrong with seeing a nude human body...not like people will go mental because they suffer childhood dramas..anyway, decided to do a nude study, tried a different approach again. And the button is there cause I felt like she should be pressing something, call it an esthetical design ><

    I really enjoyed doing this one, especially the background (even thou it's quite not polished, but I think it suits the picture)
