    I am sure that you have learned alot on this last
    MK environment. Do not worry about other studies,
    do not rush your self, everything in its own time.
    Great job.

    Yeah, that's true. We learn whole our lifes. But I think that's about time for me to turn up the speed

    @n1frit
    Huh, I wonder which ones you had in mind saying that xD. Thanks!

    @Ludic
    Thanks mate. I did a small paintover in returning the favor. Thanks again

    @LtPlissken
    Well I learned a little bit for sure. But not so much as I wanted. But maybe next piece will be my little breakthrough. Cheers

    Ok, I was lazy a last couple of days. So this time only couple of doodles. Now it's time for bed.

    Moar sketches. Sorry for bad quality of last updates. Again those are A3 format so I need to take photos instead of scanning them. From now one I'm gonna update every page separately so you can actually see what's on them ;P

    Cool studies the gestures are coming along nicely too, my suggestion would be (not much of a suggestion though ) try to put more stuff on each page don't afraid if your studies or sketches overlap each other...it's just get's you to use more paper space and make more studies per page instead of doing 3-4 studies you"ll have to make 7-8 to fill a page...that's at least how i see it.

    Anyways, keep doing the great job mate

    Hey man thanks for the comment on my SB.

    Your gestures / figure drawings are looking great - very nice linework.

    In that last painting, the perspective seems to be off on the right pillars, it looks like your going for a 3 point perspective but have pushed it a little too much in this area, the direction that they are leaning towards doesn't match the other buildings.

    It's not perfect, they may even need to lean a bit more to the left, but i did a bit of a paintover to try to explain what i mean - i hope it helps.

    Keep it up, you've got some really nice values in this one.

    @glaudarien
    Thanks for the paintover mate . That's true, i've but fird vanishing point to close, that's why perspective seems to be off. I'll try to experiment with your suggestions tomorow and fix this issue. Big thanks for comment and advice, cheers!

    I'm having much on my head, so small update today. Nothin' much.

    Looking good mate, some pointers though:
    a. The pillars as they are would not stand they would have fall, they just tilted too much.
    b. i agree about the perspective issues some of the blocks and shapes have different vanishing points though they are on the same plane.
    c. the same things that i said in the previous point about the planes is true in my opinion to the forest picture as well.
    I hope i"ll get near my tablet soon so i would be able to show what i mean in that.

    Keep working hard mate!

    Thank's mate, I would appreciate it And your other tips are very helpfull I think I must to rest a little and look at this piece with a fresh eye.

    Fast WIP. I was working on this guy almost whole day. And from the beggining I had problems with this piece, startign from the skin tone and ending on he's 'not having a form'. I'll try to fix it tomorow, when I'll have a fresh mind. Any suggestions about this one?

    Hey mate this is looking good. I did another paint over for you if you don't mind - so much easier to explain that way

    First thing that came to mind was the way that he is pulling those reigns implies to me that he is pulling at a great force with his left arm which would steer this creature to the right, like he is pulling into a bank (the maneuver not the building haha) so the first thing i did was rotate him a bit and changed the tail a little (tails are hard!)

    I then added some blues into the shadows using a colour balance adjustment layer, as it was looking a little monochromatic - on my monitor atleast.

    Lastly, i think the reason why its looking a little flat is because tehre isn't really an obvious light source, he seems to be almost lit from all directions which is very un-appealing and eliminates form. So i added a light source for you (the arrow) and then i very quickly and roughly put in some shadows on a new multiply layer and some highlights on a new overlay layer - every shadow and highlight you place should comply with your light source - also cast shadows work very well to describe form and depth so pay attention to where you can add those (the head casting a shadow onto the shoulder? or the wing casting a shadow onto the tail)

    My paint over is a bit crude but i hope it helps.

    I agree with glaudarien about lighting.
    And it seems his face is skewed. The body has issues as well but I can't put my finger into it

    Your forest pic (that I saw before but had no idea what to say. But now I got into giving crits) has some nice things but lacks something. Deeper shadows, more interesting setting (we have 3 trees that are very similar, standing at the same distance from us as a foreground), those "bright green everywhere" plants looks unrealistic even if they are parts of some magical forest or something.
    I think. I couldn't do it better or even like this but I often have these critical voices in me *shrug*.

    Actually ain't much to say about the last pic, the two guys before me stated most of the issues that i wanted to address.
    so all i can do now is let you work and see what you come up with next time
    Keep working and posting mate.

    So many things happened in your sketchbook
    for these last seven days, its just unbelievable.
    You started doing all kind of studies and environmenting,
    I am speechless. That green Jedi Cactus forest looks
    great, and you used your brushes wisely on that one.
    You really cracking up the values and the lighting.
    This last one is also promising, the only thing that
    bothers me is the white background, cause it gives
    extremely high contrast and alters the real colors.
    So keep up with the good job, and sorry for my late visit.

    @glaudarien
    I don't mind at all. Thanks to your over paint and explanation I finally know how to fix this guy Big thanks mate!

    @shiNIN
    Yeah, he's body has some issues, but I didn't tried to be 100% anatomical accrue, beside even if I want to be so, I don't think I could handle it. That's why I appreciate every time when someone points my mistakes . And a word of explanations about this forest. I painted it with intention to make an animated background from it, where every layer moves, that's why it's so flat, but yeah, composition could be more interesting. I have so much to learn in this field. Thanks for comment. Always appreciate constructive crits .

    @Fallenangel
    Hah, thanks for the encouragement In fact, I'm still working! Cheers xd

    @LtPlissken
    Long time no see, lieutenant. Welcome back! You know that I even didn't notice this white background. I dunno how it happen actually, lol. I always painting on light grey or I'm knocking some random values at the beginning. When I finally get to this painting I'll put in on darker background Thanks.

    Now to the update. I was lazy last couple of days, so I did only a couple of figures and some pelvis area studies. One of the most difficult areas in human body in my opinion, it's a mess! Anyway that's for today, maybe I'll make it to paint something earlier this evening. But first need to get some rest, it was a hard week.

    Great study of anatomy! If you continue in the same spirit, that you will become the owner of excellent skills in understanding and drawing of anatomy . It is necessary to apply only these skills in realization of various ideas!

    Thanks, I'm using Vilpppu videos for anatomy, Bridgman book Complete Guide To Drawing From Life, elito goldfinger - Human Anatomy for Artists and of course Andrew Loomis books.

    @n1frit, mitchoo
    Thanks guys

    It was busy couple of days. So no anatomy today. I didn't had time to finish last paintings also (but I will). I'm throwing a couple of really fast (about 5 minutes each) thumbs. Hope I'll have enough time and motivation to do at least 4-6 a day. Wish me luck . I'll try to catch up with your sketchbooks tomorrow. So be patient. Cheers

    Those look promising! Put some more time in a couple of them. Keep it up. I can imagine that making those thumbnails helps with getting a lot of ideas and motivation.

    Neat environments. Especially the last one,
    the grey one. Makes me to think the most
    about my future.

    Believe or not, but last one was the hardness

    Thanks for comments and support guys Ok I repainted this caveman guy, still it has issues but I have enough of this piece. And I'm posting a little more refined ruins that I'm working on. While painting this, I can see how much I have to learn. Also I'm having a hard time to render this piece. But I'm planning to work on it for a while to see how far I can take it.

    I like a lot your resent works, although something bothers me in your enviro... like composition or perspective... sorry can't even give you an advice ( Maybe more skilled people could help, or just don't bother someones personal opinion ))) But anyway, I like colors and rendering there))

    I can already see that Indiana Jones will ride through
    those ruins. He will be then followed by a zombie nazi army.
    The guy on the flying creature looks a bit weird, like an orphan
    eating and surviving on a sour cherry tree. But you will
    fix that by studying a bit of the Frazetta stuff.
    Keep on breaking bones.

    those ruins are looking nice! There's already a good depth in there. The only thing that kind of disturb me is the base of the pillar on the right. I don't know if you had a perspective grid and if, how it looked. I just have the feeling, that the base is out of perspective.
