    Cool stuff, nice sepia palettes. You might want to take time to sharpen and detail focal points in your images, they are looking too soft overall right now. Keeping your focal points sharper and the rest of the image softer will help your pieces pop more and keep the viewer's eyes where you want em.

    Hey! you have got some cool paintings here. The thing i noticed was that your characters faces seem a little empty for expression in a way. Try to give them more of a personality and the characters will become more alive. That wil help with the focal points that KelsM was talking about.

    Keep posting more and study a lot! See you later!

    Barbarian Update

    Latest sketch. The composition and design are boring, so I think I'll call it done and move on to another. I used Painter 11 and a bit of Photoshop CS5. no ref.

    Welcome Jason.

    I really like the colors and mood in your paintings.
    However i'd like to point out that you have problems with facial proportions and perspective. Persp can get tricky, but it's a must for a succesfull "realist painter".

    Stars for this thread, for sure.

    Sargent Study

    Hello,

    A master study of a J.S.Sargent portrait. I learned alot and think I'll be doing a lot more studies like this.

    Icecold - Thanks for the kind words, and your right about the head proportions and perspective. I've neglected them for to long. Time to dig in and study!

    Yea Sargent studies look great. I should really do some studies of my own. I haven't in a long time. I think you can work on your anatomy some more. Sometimes, your figures seem to be a little off but I can see you starting more figure drawings. Keep up the hard work!

    Great start... anatomy is a bit awkward, but you're well on your way to ironing those issues out... keep at it!

    A sketch in Painter and some pencil sketches.

    I'm working on anatomy and perspective as was mentioned in an earlier critique. Not much to show yet though. I'll be studying from Hogarth, Bridgman and others.

    Any Loomis fans out there will be glad to know that there looks to be a reprint of his most popular book scheduled for release next year.

    Liffey - Thanks! and your right about the awkward anatomy. I'll be studying hard to correct it.

    Ros1 - The "dark and mysterious mood" comment made my day! Thanks!

    Here are a few more studies and exercises. Sketches on the first page were done with ref from characterdesigns.com. The other page was done from imagination. Thanks for dropping by!

    nice progress! i was gonna say watch your proportions, but that's exactly what you're already doing

    also you seem to light your subjects very smoothly and evenly, it sort of looks like all the materials are the same, and on an overcast day. have a go at some shiny/matte stuff with a strong light source!

    that last pic you posted - the red one with no ref... yowsa i'll be that good someday if i'm lucky!

    Lal - Thanks!

    NeonDuck - Thanks for the comments. An earlier poster had mentioned proportions and perspective so I've been working on it. I'm happy that you can see an improvement. Also, your right about the materials. Something else for the "ToDo" list.

    Since the name of this thread is "Digital Sketches" I figure I had better post a digital sketch now and then instead of all the traditional work.
