    Nice enviro
    I have some uncertain feelings about your CHOW entry but I can't put my finger into it (something about anatomy)... But I love his face expression and I like the gesture you chose for him.
    I have a really hard time to get back to drawing and saying my opinion after my inactive weeks so this is all for now.

    Looks cool, my only suggestion so far would be to use harder edge brushes and don't blend everything try to use the digital brushes as if you are actually painting

    Keep up with the great work mate!


    Here is something to keep you motivated

    I always just type in hollywood actor or actress since they love to show their faces off so much (and it helps you learn to draw "attractive" people), lol. That is if you can handle looking at all the annoying puffy lip celebrities. Glad to see lots of studies, nature can be useful for learning how to push your stuff to the next level. Good to see you again!

    Boobies! Thanks a lot!

    @bpic
    Long time no see, welcome back mate. It's good to have you around again.

    So I'll open my new page with this crappy study. This is probably the worst portrait on the planet, need to document it. Am I doing something wrong with those portraits or accuracy simply will come with time and practice? ;o

    Your problem here is that you've measured on a straight, and the photograph is at an angle, throwing off your measurements.

    Make. Sure. The. Sketch. Is. Accurate..BEFORE.YOU.COMMIT.

    I know you know this, but you didn't show it here. It's good painting, but it's thrown off by the planning being off.

    If you don't you just do a lot of good painting over (or under depending on your preferences) a bad sketch layer, and all of your measurements will always be off.

    My suggestion to you is you is to sketch the head out again, focusing on the big shapes and measurements. Once you're absolutely certain that you've nailed them, then draw in the shadow shapes in line. You'll get a nice solid base for painting on.

    Hope that helps.

    Maan, you turned the update machine on again.
    Awesome work pace, you are improving for sure.
    As for face references, I usually take screenshots when
    I watch some movies and I see an attractive or interesting face.
    The fighting scene that you did is looking great stylistic,
    reminds me on Street Fighter days. For that face that you
    rendered on the previous page, that orc or whatever it is,
    I know the feeling when you are feeling stuck. It means
    as I figured that you need to do something from references,
    find a great digital artist who inspires you and try to copy his
    work. Try to work out every pore that he did. That's a huge learning
    process, and experience. Just a thought anyway. Maybe I am wrong.
    You are doing great. Pls note me about the blog that you are staring,
    when it starts, I want so see the project. Cheers.

    It actually took me some time to think of a good crit/suggestion for you at this point.
    it seems that you are getting better with your painting skills but good colors are simply not enough to make a good picture.

    I see the best example for that in your last two portraits, where anatomy issues causing major problems in your way. I would suggest to invest some more time in to detailed anatomy studies at least of the human head so you would be able to understand why you're putting your brush strokes in a certain direction and fashion, so you would be able to convey for and color much better.

    Anyways, keep drawing and painting mate!

    If the last portrait was intended to be similar to the original... then it's not successful. So many things are different, it looks like a harsher, very stylized version with some proportion differences. The original has warmer colors and it's way softer. Master studies often lose some of the original softness but you simply killed that when you drew the features, especially the more visible eye. It's highly stylized, as hard as can be. Your version has an interesting look, it has impact, it's just totally not a lively real face just a stylized depiction of it.
    You tend to use desaturated (in the last portrait, black) shadows, real faces usually aren't like this. It makes the faces less alive. It has its own role in art, donát misunderstand me.

    I appreciate your valuable comment. I really need to incorporate references into my works. In fact I've already started a piece where I'll do it. Again thanks for visiting my SB again . Cheers mate.

    @RBeek
    I'm not forgetting about my pencils xd. Pencil update, activated!

    @Fallenangel
    Yeah, you are right. I was focusing to much on rendering, and I forgot about my fundamentals. I think when I start working on fundamentals again, I'll see improvement in my work. At least I hope so . Thanks for comment, I appreciate it ;3.

    @shiNIN
    In other words. I've fucked up I know. Failure is a part of learning process. Doing my best to eliminate this weak point Cheers.

    I suck at drawing heads and faces. Sooo I'm working to change it xd
