Lookin good man, latest goku piece is coming along nicely.
If times kicking you in the ass maybe you could try setting up a timetable or starting a journal or somethin. Although i still don't do as much as I should i found keeping track of your available time helps alot. Keep at it bro, i want to see more of that latest piece finished!
Hey Rama, the Goku one is coming along pretty nice, I like how massive you made him. Just watch out for some of the bumps everywhere. Like on the trapezius I don't think there will be all those bumps. There's really no need to add detail everywhere, just in some spots. The places without detail will make the places with detail look more detailed.
Thanks guys for all comments and crits. I appreciate them as always. Sorry for no replys, I'm super tired (it's almost 2am). But I wanted to post something before easter. So here it is. It's not all my stuff I have a bunch of commisions images that I can't show yet, and some doodles in my sketchbook which I'll post in couple days when I get running scaner. Cheers.
Very lovely and cheerful colors in your last ones,
and just look at your face painting improvements,
I remember a few months back, you were struggling
with faces on your live streams, but now you have
started to master the skill. Your dedication is
truly inspirational for us all.
The apple and spoon study came out great. Those thumbs are pretty clean as well, i can get a good grasp of the idea you're trying to pitch. I always find my thumbs come out way to abstract and messy for anyone to understand but me. Which is kind of silly because thumbs play a big role in communicating your ideas to the customers xD
I seen the ape on twitter, looks great man, you are improving a lot, the study looks good too!

Most of your works would look better if they weren't that soft/smudgy. I don't say you should use different brushes, do what you floats your boat, there's not only one right way to do things.
The skin colors are sometimes muddy, too gray/black, IMO.
Cool stuff. I like the muscleman in post # 466. Is it purely from imagination?
Nice looking muscles init. Also I like his face. The apple still-life looks good also. Can't blame your girlfriend, it looks very delicious and I would have eaten it too.
Also the man below that looks very good. I like his face especially. It would be cool to see rest of his body as detailed as his face. Also good figure study this latest one. I like the skin tones in it, allthough at some points they might be too grayish as shiNIN pointed out. But who am I to say, I know yet nothing about skin tones.
Fuck dude, the latest mma zoo character is frickin sweet! Especially like the area around his face. I need to do more studies 0_0
One thing i would mention is watch out for the cast shadow and feet area, it looks unnateral and is distracting from the overall piece. Depending on where the light is coming from, shadows tend the be stronger when closer to the object and go softer as they move away from it. Try doing some studies or pulling some ref to help rectify it if your having problems.
Keep posting dude, your improvements are inspiring.
Hey there Rama,
Yeah those faces are hard to master, i always see people spending so much more time on the face then they do anywhere else on the body. Interesting how one of the smallest parts of the picture in size can often eat up way more time than anything else.
Sounds rough with all the client work... Nice studies though!
I dig your new stuff, especially the last one I don't know what that object before/around the monster though.
Well it's me. Finally got some time for studies and non NDA work. So I hope I can motivate myself to update this place regulary. Have a bunch of drawings in my paper sketchbook. But I'm not feeling like scanning all that shit. Maybe I'll do a big dump in the future.
You should definitely finish that knight illustration above, it's looking great.
As always, I love your painterly style. I can definitely appreciate that you are steering away from linework and diving straight into the paints.
Just keep stabbing the canvas with that brush!
The first guy in the last pic: I miss his hip in the front/back view. It just looks odd to me. I'm not sure about how the pants thing behaves... The first, colored painting of this guy looks much better constructed.
I more or less like the rest, I like the color portraits and the enviro the most. I'm not a fan of vertically tight crops, I would let the buildings have more breathing space, showing the top of the mountain as well.
You're really pushing it lately man, awesome!
Wish I had something to crit but all the stuff your pushing out is way
better than mine, man, i'd probably just be wrong!
Keep it up bro!
Man your pencil studies have such a clean linework already! Love the female posings, they really catch it ... Also skintones and facial details are getting better and better, you're really pushing it on all frontiers I even dare to say that this brown toned monster you did slightly reminds me of Dave Rapoza's monster compilation, concerning the renderstyle ...
No skill still isn't a new side.

Visit my sketchbook-gallery kinda thing ...
Nice paintings. It's not easy to paint skin, you do it very well.
I really like the ogre on post #476 - he is staring into the viewers soul and wants to eat. I also like way you did those ship thumbnails on pg. 15, really cool, nice designs.
thanks for sharing
