    Awesome, I really like your details. What brand and name of the paper did you use on your pictures below?
    I have been trying to find a drawing book that is tinted like yours so I can experiment with white charcoal.

    Alien Gent

    I think I'm getting the hang of adding more natural randomness to lighting a color. This guy was pretty spur of the moment, 2 hours ish. I painted him up then messed with the liquify tool to get some interesting shapes and then cleaned it up with the brush.

    your Alien Gent looks great. a real nice portrait it is!

    and you said:
    "As for environments.. I AM scared. But I will face my fears. Still don't have the sense of scale right when I do them. Feels like a model train set instead of reality.. More soonish."

    maybe this would help: http://issuu.com/abuagla/docs/andrew...--perspective- there are some great lessons in there about perspective.
    I also learned a lot about landscape drawing from making a model. well maybe you should use model train stuff and make a picture from the landscape how it is in there. you do have the skills to paint it more realistic thats for sure.

    keep up the great work! I realy enjoy your art!

    some incredible colors on that last one! wow, you've def sharpened up your edges and it looks fantastic!

    what brushes are you primarily using? I'm currently trying to get a hold of the hard round, but I'm still learning a lot and have much to soak in.

    keep posting please!

    ...the imperfections make it interesting...

    brushes

    The brush I am using for most of this is a custom brush that sortof mimics a rough round bristle. Only opacity is based on pressure.

    I've been setting flow to 15% but realized it was too soft and was making stuff a bit fuzzy - requiring a lot of edge repainting. I'm still breaking the habit but I upped flow to about 50% on this one.

    Jason Chan's video tutorial (digital painting techniques) shows his main brush so I used that as a jumping off point. I think his setting is a 90 hardness (?) round brush with 50% flow. Opacity set to pressure and no taper.

    One AWESOME tip I would recommend is to set up shortcuts for brush size, brush tool, eraser, zoom in/out so they are all easily reachable for your non drawing hand. I have a sortof home base on the left side of the keyboard with everything so no reaching across or looking down from the canvas when I work.

    thanks for the feedback everyone,

    Like your drawings. U do have the insticts to draw anything from what i see, however conquer the human anatomy first. What I'm talking about is human figure from head to toe and practice to draw them in deep foreshortening to show your skill level (raw penciles). Old school. And, once you feel comfortable to draw human figures in any pose with that cool look to it, resume to coloring again. Also use comic book as your reference. Don't worry abot the style. Eventualy that will develop on its own. You are very talented but practice will separate u from others.
