    You have a whole lot of really nice figure studies and your painting style is coming along really great c8 With digital painting though, you should think about what parts you want more defined and detailed when you sketch it out/just start, because you tend to draw the eye away from what feels like should be the focus because you put more detail and emphasis on other parts. I think you should also experiment with different ways to use and layer textures, because they look a little too indistinct and loose around the object you're trying to use them on sometimes. But your blending has gotten really nice, especially on skin! Keep up the wonderful work!

    Keep on studying! The results are coming! Sometime I notice something not suitable in the lower parts od the figures. I like classical and mithological figures. Love pen sketches too!!

    Tuesday, Thanks for the crit! I will work more on the strokes I use.

    Ivan Kolor, Thanks! I guess you're talking about the anatomy in the lower part of the body? I always have problem with legs, I'll work more on them then.

    Thank you Samurai_Nik! I find that doing the action line of the pose and then putting the placement of the shoulders and hip, always seems to help me when doing poses. o3o

    Hi Voodoo Mama! You have some really awesome stuff. Your figure drawings are jaw dropping. Also it may sound odd but I love that you do them in good old pen and pencil..makes me feel less like I am stuck in the stone-age >_>

    @ wooden mango, Thank you! hehe yes, good ol' pencil and pen never fails, and it's cheap too Cx

    @jelmerscmit, Thank you!

    @Dannyphoto, Thank you! I'm glad you think so, I've been working on value and color lately, so much stuff to learn.

    Well since the attachment manager seems to be down, I'm using Photobucket to post images, it has never failed me actually....

    this was more of a color study than anything else. I was going to give this...monster, spikes on his back, but then I thought it would be kind of silly since he's supposed to be a predator he can defend himself without them...and that's as far as my creature design thinking goes...

    some cartoon tryouts. I've always wanted to learn to draw cartoons...

    This girl is supposed to be Rapunzel (Raiponce) from Disney's Tangled. Although she doesn't look much like her.

    I found some Disney character sheets and expressions studies over the internet so I will study those, and hopefully next time I post cartoons they will look better.

    Doing studies is good, creating out of imagination is fun and keeps you on the creative track, but these things can only go so far.
    You need to push something for longer, and reach a point where you think it's finished.
    Maybe it won't be a still life, as you seem to grow bored of them, so how abou a landscape, or a nude? (if you can find one.)
    I think that pushing your envelope will move you faster on the path of progress.

    Some good color happening in your work - the oranges, the coffee pot, Rapunzel.

    Hey Hamsta! Thanks for dropping by and giving critique!
    I'll definetly do longer pieces. Landscapes sound like a great idea, specially now that it's finally starting to warm up. I'll also try to push further the still lifes.
    Thanks, I've been trying to work more on color too!

    This was supposed to be a caribbean voodoo environment.
    Caribbean voodoo (santeria) originated as a mixture of african voodoo with the roman catholic religion, so that's why there are pictures of saints in the environment...just in case someone was like 'wut?'

    Hey Mariana!

    Nice to be able to see your work posted I really like that first painting, "Faviola", wow, well done! I do recommend to finish some of those still life studies with a greater finish, you got the skills to do so. It will push you out of your comfort zone
    I am looking forward to seeing your work as you hold so much potential.

    Definitely like where your going so far, and i agree that pushing yourself a little further to really polish a few pictures may help move you forward faster. Looking forward to seeing more from you!

    @ayoub66, Thanks for the crit! Yes I agree, the scene does need more lightning. I don't know what you mean by "put some big image for it". Are you talking about composition? or is it the actual size of the pieces I post? If it's the last, I always start the pictures big but resize them to 500px or 550px since a lot of people (myself included ) still have 800 x 600 monitors, anything bigger than that would require you to scroll all over the thread in order to see the image.

    @Dalibor, you recognized me! Thanks for dropping by! I'm glad you like my painting I will work more on finishing the still lifes, no more laziness from me!

    @Divine, Thanks! yep, I'll definetly push myself more!

    @Gthm, Thank you.

    @MatthewHD, Hey! Thanks for dropping by! I don't usually do black and white digitally so it's nice to hear that someone liked them C:
