just had a quick scroll through your stuff you progress especially with the painting stuff is really good, I think your a bit like me your learning paint at the same time as drawing, although i have to admit I think you've had a lot more courgage with your work, the digital painting of the girl in pink with a rose was amazing and also the boats above are impressive, You following the loomis books?
Bami- I sure am following Loomis, mate. His work's really great, it reminds me of old-style realism comic pictures, which I'm really into. I hope to progress even further. Thanks for the comment! And about courage or whatever--just like in acting, if you don't make a fool of yourself every once in a while, you never ever get better!
You show promise, but I think there's still a lot of work that needs to be done. I mean, you should really stick with the basics and practice with traditional media as much as you can. One thing that pops out to me is proportion. Your figures look really short and stumpy. Your Loomis figures on post 18 look better, but still a little stubby.
If you want to continue with digital painting, try placing a picture of some object that you want to draw on a layer, lower the opacity, then make a separate layer and trace the image (I got this idea from Matt Kohr at ctrlpaint.com). Get the basic shapes down first and don't worry about the details. Trace and copy as much as possible.
When you copy, try to draw exactly what you see. If you're copying from a master work and you sense that your picture still doesn't look like the artists rendition, then you are probably right. I think every one has that ability to see that something is not quite right with their own image and I think that they are usually right in this case.
ok if u want picky PLEASE for the love of god make ur images smaller...
it took me like 10 minutes to scroll down!
secondly i think youve got a good large amount of work and you are doing quite well.
maybe steer clear of the hardcore anime for a while till your faces are superflat and your linework is a bit more fine. Anime is very relient on clean lines, both for the eyes and the hair and so forth..so perhaps stick to observational studies in real life, and drawing normal people, then apply those skills/anatomy to anime as you wish. unless u prefer to stay in pure comic type style (manga) ie. square torso's and pointy chests. upto you. enjoy.
