    Sorry if the images are too big.
    I'll try to make them smaller from now on.
    Thank you for looking.

    You have some interesting ideas, keep them coming.
    I can see one clear weakness though. You use more lines than you need. Only put down lines that has to be there. All lines should serve a purpose to the image. You shouldn't add random lines here and there, they will weaken the piece. Think ahead in steps as you draw, it will help a lot I think!

    Other than that, have a nice day and keep it up!

    So I've been doing some acrylic stuff lately. They are both rather small.

    This is 20.5 x 29 cm paper.

    Να τος ο τρελός, να μαζευόμαστε σιγά σιγά.
    Thanx for stopping by at my sb. I see that the last two pieces are much more solid due to the better use of brush strokes. Also, the luck of outlines gives them a more 3d aspect. The hard outlines on the 5# post for example, tend to flatten your image. I can understand what you are trying to do (i think) using that kind of linework but as loathsome wrote, u have to be more specific about what you are trying to achieve. Also, a few anatomy studies are necessary. You can see that on the last post at his left hand and head. Once again, there is deffinetely a unique style, not only from a drawing's view but also from a concept point. Do you like history?

    Geia sou man!!!
    Great work overall.I am impressed by your passion to create complicated scenes, like these historical style paintings.
    I think you have a great start here and u are on a great track with your skills.I think if u keep up improving the fundamentals u can create even greater pieces and u will be able to make a better depiction of what u have in your mind(and why not landing more jobs or somethign)
    Studying anatomy is a basic training that will not only help u in creating bodies.
    Keep it up mate!!!

    I like the energy! Keep painting this actively.
    But you need to do more studies because there's a bunch of structure problems. Whenever you start guessing how things look, then it's time to do studies of it.

    Do studies from anatomy books such as Andrew Loomis and Brigdman. You can find PDFs of those on the internet. I think you should do some still life painting and copy photos for color studies.

    Be as active with the studies as with the imagination painting. You need a good balance, it's important!

    If you do studies but you don't post them, then that's cool. But if that's the case. I'd love to see those too!

    All the best!

    Been a long time since I posted here, but I've been busy with both art and non-art stuff.

    knut-: Thanks for the crit! Yeah, I know my anatomy isn't very strong. It's something I'll have to work on. At the moment, I like painting culturally diverse people with strange costumes, so that's why I tend to paint subjects of this kind. Eυχαριστώ πολύ που έγραψες!

    kingkostas: Ευχαριστώ πολύ! Yeah I know my anatomy needs work. It's just that I tend to focus more on composition and color, and as a result anatomy has taken a back seat. I'll try to put more effort in my anatomy from now on.

    Loathsome: Thank you! You are right about the guessing part. I'll try. A few years ago, all I did was studies and drawing from reference. I ended up not being able to draw from my imagination, so I don't do too many studies these days, and try to just have fun! Seriously though, I'll try to incorporate it into my drawing habits. Yes, I do some stuff from photos or master copies but I don't post them because they'll make my imagination stuff look bad , and it's a way to motivate me to make my own paintings.

    I really admire the way you manage lighting and colors man! I think the sky is great, and the synthesis is nice, but you didn;t let some room. I mean maybe those figures are a bit too much for the specific frame. Leave more room maybe for the surroundings. Other than that, anatomy is the thing!

    I can sense improvement in the female drawing.
    But you really should put sometime into studying and not only do stuff from imagination because else you'll get stuck one day and that'd suck. You don't have to do an insane amount, but it's healthy for your art to work out those muscles in your brain.

    Doing studies and then doing imaginative work is great. But if you do studies and then stop doing them for a really long while, it can get damaging. I've heard a bunch of professionals mentioning that they felt like they did slip a bit with their art when they didn't do any studies at all.

    I don't mean to pester you with this, I just wanted to highlight the importance I see in studying.

    Loathsome: Thank you for your honesty and critique. I really appreciate it. I've been doing studies the last couple days but I don't consider them very interesting to look at, so I kept them private. But since I see an interest in seeing them, I will share them gladly. I suppose I should be more transparent about my process. So let's go!

    Been studying Hogarth mainly, since it provides a nice introduction to mass, construction and the most prominent muscles, but I did squeeze in some studies from Bridgman and Loomis in there.

    I also did some master copies. Albeit limited ones, and loose.
