    A drawing based off a haiku with a certain irony to it..

    Also trying out acrylics for the first time... Not at all as pleasant to work with as oils...

    You know with the cloud/hair thing, you should do it on one of the DWELL pictures. They're up there to be used. They don't have to be rainbow stuff, storm clouds should fit the bill.

    Barbie looks unloved and possibly pregnant. You should do more on it.

    Hey tobbA, thanks for dropping by my sb, I wanted to return the favor
    and try to drop some wisdom , mind you it's very very late or um... Early while I'm writing this.

    First even if your updates are weekly I'm seeing a little bit of improvement. However you could pursue some facial studies, since your faces tend to look a little dollish, Focus a little on the contruction proportioning. imagine that last pencil with the demon or gargoyel if you'd turn him/it 45 degrees. Hope it helps.

    oh and btw I hate acrylics to

    Actually, I'm beginning to like acrylics. I think you need to slap a lot more paint on to start with.

    I'm surprised you don't like acrylics when you work with both watercolor and oils; acrylic is kinda the in-between medium in that its fast drying and can be applied in thin, watery pools or you can add acrylic medium to make it gel-like and blend with more control. I believe using acrylic medium also slows the drying time so you can approach it more like oils. If you can adjust to the quickened pace of acrylics, you'll end up spending less time waiting for it to dry at least. (I hate that stage in oils where it gets kinda sticky, like it's half-dry but still too wet to do anything with it, yuck.)

    Anyway, I'm really impressed with your progress in here! Especially in terms of your color, particularly when it comes to flesh tones, has really improved. My favorite image in this thread I think is the portrait commission in post #105. The flesh has a very real sense of volume and, most importantly, your highlights are purposeful and not overused. I think some of your studies push the value range a little too far around the image and make the surfaces feel a bit plastick-y and over-reflective. Be a little sparing with your highlights for matte surfaces and textured areas. Keep up the good work!

    Long time no see...

    Incinerated: Thanks

    Black Spot: Hm. Yeah. I mean, I only tried them once so.. But I feel I have enough on my hands trying to figure out oils at the moment.

    Dierat: Well. I felt they dried too fast and I felt like I never had enough paint to begin with. And it ended up looking muddy and ugly and never the way I wanted... Acrylic medium sounds interesting though.

    And thanks

    Here's a dragon painting I did recently, tried to patch it together as good as possible after scanning...

    And a preliminary sketch for another painting. Based on the Others from the A Song of Ice And Fire series.

    Three characters I did for an assignment in school (which was basically do whatever you want based on an exhibit about japanese fashion)

    A forest painting for my moms birthday. It's supposed to be wood anemones (I think they're called) on the ground, but not sure if that comes across.

    And a snow speeder still life.

    Not your best watercolour. It's probably the most difficult medium to master well - I hate painting with it, but jut got some to dabble with.

    The little dragon piece is coming on well. The prelim sketch needs some work to make the composition stronger. I like the fashion plates.

    In what way does the composition need to be changed?

    First page of a comic for P.O.W.

    A shaman character

    A sick monster from DSG

    And a book cover illustration WIP that is supposed to have color on it..

    The lighting composition on the dragon piece. It needs it be a lot stronger like the last piece you posted. At the moment it's flat.

    The last picture - those logs lit on the cabin - they're brighter further away from the edge near the light source.

    You should look at the portfolio reviews Jason is doing. Lighting is one of the main issues.

    I guess I need to work more on value composition then. Could probably use a portfolio review of my own..

    I don't know what you mean with the last pic. One of the logs is darker further on because the logs are intertwined at the corners and one that sticks out shadows the other. But now that you mention it that shadow should probably be hard and not soft... Maybe that's why it looks odd.

    Here's a forest plen air thing. Somehow I've misplaced my watercolors so i had to take out the oil pastels. Though they're pretty nice to work with anyway.

    Nice machine study on that last one man. What did you use for that? Oils or acrylics? I can't tell O_O.

    Thanks. It's pastels.

    Decided to put some work on the witch I made a while back. Not sure I'm too happy with how that texture turned out, but eh...

    I like the pastels you've done - that's a lot of good work.

    The Witch. Again look at the first two portfolio reviews as specular lighting is discussed. A lot of your digital work has the same texture, all shiny and balloon like, and using custom brushes is not helping. You can get it using water colour and pastels, now you need to find it with digital.

    Thanks. Yeah, I think I see the problem. I did my best to fix it as well as some other things...

    Some anatomy studies. A WIP for a wolf picture. And I tried my hand at some matte painting based on a photo I took.

    Hey there matey

    Some nice stuff in here, I like the anatomy studies particularly, I cant get my head around the skin colour of the witch though, what made you go that way, just out of curiosity (no offense meant), I mean it is different and add a certain weirdness it just looks a little hard is all.

    all the best and thanks for visiting my book

    I like the green skin - I thought all witches were meant to be that colour sort of.

    Usually on the face the brightest part is the tip of the nose, you have made it the cheek, which does make it a bit shiny. don't be afraid to fling more colours in there all over the place. I'm sure I've talked about all the weird and wonderful colours in skin, well green skin is no different. Make her a child's worst nightmare - think texture.

    I don't know much about matt painting, but most of the trees look cut out as does the crane and seagull. The broken windows don't look right - if they've smashed through the central uprights, the glass is not going to break like that - I don't think there would be much left at all.

    Well yeah. All witches are green in my head. Why wouldn't they be?

    I actually did make some variations to the skin color. It's probably way too subtle though. I think I'm gonna leave this one to the crows or whatever now...

    The matte painting was just an experiment for fun. And it's the first one I've done. But I guess you're right. Painting something to look realistic and fit in with the photo was super hard. ^^'

    Another pastel landscape

    And page three of the comic

    There are some good looking studies in here and you can definitely see improvement as you go through this sketchbook. (I particularly like your traditional stuff.)

    Keep up the good work! ^_^

    I don't mind nagging as long as it makes me better.

    Been a while since I've posted. School's over so it's a bit hard to adjust to a new schedule... (of not much at all, basically) Also I'm becoming a bit paranoid about posting WIPs since it seems like everytime I do I end up not finishing them...

    A couple of pieces I just finished. First one's inspired by a pokemon crossbreeding thingie online and the result of combining diglet and magnemite. Second one is a space butler hologram for CHOW.

    The space butler - love the face and hands, and they're not balloon like, unlike his boots. Great hand work. Now really push that copy. Even if you push too far you'll learn tons - find out what's important in the picture and what isn't.

    Thanks.

    Black Spot: Well, the boots were supposed to be leather, so I guess balloon like is close enough.

    Here are a couple of recent things. A dog portrait for a commission and a robot bird that was for DSG but it grew a bit beyond a sketch.
