The armor specularity study looks great. I love all the little specular highlights. It's obvious you didn't finish it.
dear god. AWESOME color & lighting. How is this done?
@Dan B-b-but the face is the best part! Aye, I understand...I don't think I could keep up posting if I had that much work to do! Well maybe once in awhile, lol.
@Karm It's okay ;p.
@Creusa Let the boar grinding begin!
@Flyn Yep, loose...spent a couple hours trying to get the reflectivity looking good and the right placement. It turned out okay, the head is the best part though ;p.
@Ros Ahhhh man thanks for the compliment. Your landscapes/enviros are sooooo good . I really need to start painting those from life! Maybe I'll do that starting this week!
Anyway 2 hour painting of this lady. I tried realllly pushing the saturation in certain areas and trying to play with the skintones. Also kinda played with the edges because I didn't really want to show those parts of the painting. It's kinda boring when every edge is super sharp. Came out pretty good. Dislike the bewbs, though. I think I'ma do a ton of life painting/sketching, maybe some of it digital. I need to lay off the photos for now WAHOOOOOOOOOOOOOO.
Maybe I could've blended more on the face, but I didn't really want to take this beyond a sketch. I need to do more sketching....quick stuff.
Nice work Deadly
Lovely sketchbook!the last one paintings rock!and very nice studies as well on the early pages...your rendering is looking nice! keep it up those color practice and i will be looking forward to see more and take care=)
Awesome artist and friends
Very good tonality on the last page, dig the colour and lighting. Keep it up!
@Ven Thanks man, hope you're practicing? and yes, your signature does have quite a great guide on how to draw anime characters. Bewbs.
@Strangedawn Thanks for the comment! I love your art!
@Nia yeeeeup. Same here. Trees are surprisingly difficult to draw ;p. Damn foliage...
@Dutchman Hey thanks man I'm glad you liked the tonality. That's something that interests me a lot.
Anyway, self-portrait and Jaime Jones study. I LOVE Jaime's art. I was interested in this one specifically not only because of the color, but everything seemed really textural and light. I did it really fast though so it didn't come out that good ;p. I really want to start working hard, but I'm just gonna do a ton of traditional stuff. I think I'll do self-portraits every once in awhile in digital but I want the majority of my stuff to be traditional for awhile. I shall start tomorrow by doing the fabled color charts in oils...

Finally, I was dying to see your new post And its great as always.
I think you got the sense of light in the Jaime study down quite well, and if you did it quickly then yeah the quality's not gonna be great is it? The self portrait looks good but some of the parts of your face aren't as well defined as the eyes or nose so it ends up looking a bit half finished.
Deadly, me want more updates
PLEASE give this idea a chance. On any of those paintings, preferably the second one in this quote, go back through with a SMALL, 100% hard, normal brush (round default one). Give outlines where they belong around and throughout the figure/whatever is in the painting. Right now they look messy and unfinished but my suggestion might help.
If you decide to do it, please upload.
@Wanderer Thanks, but it could be MUCH better! I guess I just gotta put in the work .
@Caspia Yeah I have the problem, evident in the one I'm about to upload to....I like the eyes and nose but the mouth, the neck, the ears, etc... aren't very appealing to me so I usually have to trudge through it.
@Anonymouse Hey I wasn't sure what you meant, but I'm guessing you wanted to show me that my drawing (placement) is off? Because I've been very aware of it lately and am trying to improve. I should try your suggestion on some of my newer stuff...good idea. I'll do it.
@Vaejoun AHHH I like your work! Yeah my main problem at the moment seems to be placement. Maybe I should brush up on perspective or constructive anatomy.....? Or just keep life-drawing. Or all three.
Anyway I decided to do a self-portrait today in digital just to have something to upload....I've been mostly focusing on traditional stuff which is why I haven't uploaded much (no digi camera anymore). And uh some half finished junk that I never touched about half a month ago. O_o. Sunlight is going down so I didn't finish the portrait...........maybe I'll do a few this week and try to fully finish them off.
See how the artists below has the massive black area below the waist? It's not detailed at all, just a lot of black/dark tones UNTIL he goes back with light colors, giving it a reflected light/detail. Again, this is all just a suggestion.

I agree to this. since its true that many artists dont spend to much time in the dark areas... Couse its DARK!. but dont slack off on those areas... I've seen lot of "crap" just becouse people get to slacky.
Well good luck & draw as much as you can...
Wooo! Your updating again! I like your values man, alot! Confirmed that I will stalk this sketchbook for value reference.
Looks like we look up to the same people, cool. Those master studies look pretty good color wise. You could push them lot further though. Really look into how those guys use planes, edges and textures. Challenge yourself to finish the study, no matter how long it takes. That's what I'm planning to do with the next master studies. Intimidating as hell, but probably worth it. Keep up the dedication!

Some hard work and dedication going on in here - but I definitely echo the sentiments of previous comments, harder crisper brush with less transparency would do a world of good for your paintings, show confidence and give them a better read - the Mullins study has them and outshines anything else on the page simply for it (good construction too).
And re: ismo, when you study an old master aim to make a forgery, not a copy - only when you push yourself all the way and go beyond your comfort zone will you be able to both gauge your skill and find your shortcomings to work on next, & learn new things.
Nice Jaime jones study on the previous page - Its all looking really good here so no crits other than carry on doing what you're doing. I'm glad you have more time for CA now, I have been in a similar position myself recently with working a lot.
nice work, watch out with some of those portraits though, their eyes look like they're too apart from each other, or maybe that's how your reference was, but in any case is always good to do a drawing clearly identifying the planes of the head
Keep it up, definitely improving. I think you can study on your own
What happen man I'm urging for an update.
Your digital work is absolutely gorgeous! so much improvement from the beginning of your sketchbook - thanks for the inspiration heh
A lot of hard work here. It will pay off! Keep Going!
Im back but ut not? wtf man :/
