    hh yes i heard this from Benjamin Leitgeb AKA Selwy

    http://www.selwy.com/

    "It’s not something that happens over night. If you’re telling yourself that you’re 100% untalented, make at least 500 drawings within the next 12 months (take your time for every attempt) and I bet you will never say that again.''

    Here are some quick studies I've done.
    I'm starting to do some hard studies on my materials and light.
    I'll have more later.

    Some pretty neat stuff in here; and I think your light studies are very good ( i should do some myself :c ). With that last piece though, I feel that the texture isn't quite distinctive enough. All three objects are different because of thier obvious different shapes, but it's hard to see what they are made of. The bottom cup for example,the shape suggests it may be a tall glass, but it also looks like it is made of some kind of metal or chrome. It has a very distressed serface to me. I think you should focus on applying texture as well (this is what i gather, from seeing the few colour studies youve given at least :p)

    You'r anatomy looks fairly good to me! Would like to see more and see how your style solidifies. I love more styalized pieces.

    ^_^ thanks for leaving such a nice amount of feedback.
    I know what you're saying about that last one. It's a really good point.
    As long as I'm doing some light studies I might as well put the effort into textures.
    Great advice.

    I always draw people but I just don't have too much that I really feel like posting.
    But I'm doing really well on productivity due to the teachings of, "the artists's way" by julia cameron. So I'm sure I'll have loads of people drawn pretty soon.
    I saw that I've never really drawn sexy voluptuous women, kinda like Frazetta. So I thought I'd give that a try. It should be my next dump.

    Hello,
    Good start on your SB
    The anatomy looks good, but try to focus on texture when you working with digital.
    I guess the pencils have too many lines, try to do a few less.

    Keep comin please bro, i like your style.
    cheers

    Thanks for the kudos everyone ^_^

    8bit:
    Here's a really good site to study from
    http://www.huevaluechroma.com/

    raminafshari:
    It's great to hear that one of my oldest habits is a good one

    wasabi89:
    Yeah, that texture is something I started including right after my last post.
    Sigh, my line economy has haunted me since the start of my artistic career. Haha, a good 15 years. But it's gotten better. I don't really have any ideas as to how to tone myself into better line economy. I guess it's all about confidence.

    I'll post shortly.

    quick update:
    Just augmented the breasts to something I thought looks better.
    Starting to take into consideration some of my own preferences instead of working with what I've been told. While still going along what guidlines the real costumer wants.

    Another update on this piece.
    I still need to ad some depth (i noticed at last glance) With some darker colours.
    Overall I did some more rendering on the night elf and a little on the humans skirt/kilt/robe bottoms. Though, I think I may have messed up the face. She doesn't look as youthful. I guess I'll have to detract some details.

    I like how your coloring is going, so far!

    The only thing I might suggest looking at is the human's neck/shirt. Unless you intend it, she appears to have a bit of a hunch or scoliosis in her neck. Maybe working on that might make her appear more youthful?

    Aside, you have some great work here. Keep it up!

    Please check out

    I'm learning, as always, and eager for feedback!

    haha, maybe I need to emphasize it someway.
    The human is a beefed up male, haha
    Though perhaps the humpish like muscle mass in the back is a bit much.
    Thank you for the compliment!

    Here's a really old one I'm thinking I want to redo.
    I don't know if I'll leave it as lineart or move towards a painting.
