I haven't been here for a while. You've come quite far Flo.
As a suggestion try working on the line economy, for example those blue sketches are promising. Try to find a rythm and "flow" with it with a nice line.
That may sound abstract but is really simple to apply
Hey Danny, hey Paul! Thank you guys! It's been a long road for now but I broadened it a bit so I can push my limits a bit faster. Today anatomy studies, a portrait and an acrylics painting experiment I did yesterday. Sorry for the bad quality of the photos, all pictures are made with my iPhone 3GS which has a really bad cam.
I actually sketch every day and I got a lot of stuff going since my portfolio website is up (www.penpressure.com), have already the first requests from bands and from a magazine, everythings going smooth, slowly but actually moving forward nontheless.
Edit: plus a still life of ~2 hours. wip!
Edit2: wip, later.

Hey there. I have a lot of work to do which I can show when I have finished it.
Here's a quick study I did digital. I don't paint much atm, but I draw more. Got tons of books to read about form, light, shadow, anatomy, composition etc.
Hey my friends! Here's a little update of my painting stuff.
Just ordered some different Gouache colours and brushes, began really focusing on getting better in pretty much everything. My concept art still sucks because there is too much for me at once. I switch back and forth from creature to environment, sky to bottom etc and nothing looks good in the end so I decided to pull out the best still life, environment and anatomy paintings and drawings I am able to to. It's hard for me to keep up confidence. I am totally motivated all around but doing just like one paintings in a day or a few days is something I really need to learn. Focus, focus, focus. Some good artist friends are helping me getting through the brainless storm of crap in my head :>
here's my first try in gouache... it went out better than I thought before but If I overthink... it could be even better! haha, I'm completely new to "real" brushwork, so I guess it might take some time. But it's awesome for studies I guess, because I think more what I do as I do in Photoshop.
Edit: +quick 20 min overpaint!
