I started this sketchbook thread on another forum, but this seems to be the place to be! I'll copy across the first few posts to get the ball rolling and then try and keep this up to date with newer work...

Hey all, I thought I might start a sketchbook style thread here where I can post personal or open works in progress and hopefully get some useful feedback from some of the ERS members. My goal is to try and improve myself, so please feel free to jump in with any thoughts/comments/critiques and I will do my best try and learn from the experience!
First up is an attempt at 'painting'. This is in the sense that I have always been the sort of artists to draw the lines and then just 'colour in'. I have for a long time flirted with the idea of ending my reliance on linework and actually being able to digitally paint. I have had limited success at this, so any help would be appreciated
Picked a pretty straight forward subject to start with, this is a wood elf style portrait intended to be suitable for a card art style application. As usual I started with a rough sketch based very loosely on this reference: http://chonastock.deviantart.com/art/Woad-16-64995421
The started painting in photoshop, initially using a multiply layer over the sketch to rough in the colour. Planning on flattening the layers soon to get rid of the sketch completely...
I'll add progress shots as I get further along.

Started work on my next personal/study piece along the same lines as the previous 2. This time a composition featuring a couple of characters and hoping to work in some strong colours into the piece without it being too overpowered...
Here are the first few stages:
