    I like your update frequency
    You are getting better. Even if my inner critic could provide a list of flaws any time, these are smaller than before.
    Sometimes I don't criticize something because I could say merely "the mouth expression is weird, but I can't put my finger into it". Well I usually say such things as well but I can't expect you to make an expression correctly. I'm not found of critics that are true but I can't solve the flaws in question without much practice before.
    (and I should let others to say something I didn't )

    The expresson of the new face is much better, the previous was an intense, even painful "yuck!" to me now that I look at it again.
    This seems to be okay but the upper teeth curve very strangely.
    The top of her head is missing. Over the hairline one has some skull and the hair with volume... Even if we see her slightly from below, we should see a bit more.
    She has a not small ear, it's fine, but the lines of the hair around it follows its curve and it's like a huge ear optically... Not a fortunate thing.
    {and my English isn't nice but I'm usually understandable, that's the main thing I wish I could write in a conscise and stylish way though}
    I could write more but it's enough for now.

    Hi everyone,

    @ Snake- Thanks for the detailed review mate. i really do appreciate it. But you shouldn't replying if you are going through a busy schedule. But honestly your presence here is always a welcome sight especially when im getting an all out assaulted by shiNIN and Sivonja... LOL...just kidding. I wouldn't have come this far without those hard crits. Ill be working on my linework as you and Sivonja pointed out several times. Glad that you like my last update. maybe youll like the latest update of Thalestris as well. ill try my level best to eliminate those errors. Thanks a lot for the encouragement mate.

    @ shiNIN - hehe. I hope im not giving you a tough time by posting like a crazy sob! anyways just reply me when you are totally free only. i know you need loads of time to improve yourself as well. The sad story is i cant help you like the way you help me out mate. im not experienced enough to do so. but ill try my best to help you out Thanks for all these valuable crits. Just know that behind my improvement you and all my other friends are there.im grateful. i mean it. Oh by the way..as i promised, ill be doing my version of 'Teresa' from tomorrow onwards. i started my fact finding today.

    Don't worry, helping you is one of the best things I can do with my time and that's just do good to my motivation
    I posted another "Tegaki nostalgy" time-consuming stuff in my sb... I wonder what would be different if I would get crits... Maybe I needed that years when I drew thousands of faces and every drawing was very wrong... I fought with my tools as well but not just that, that's obvious... Whatever.

    The eyes? I have no problem with them, pretty ones.
    I don't like the mouth, again. The farther corner turns away from us, I wrote that already. As if it would be in a cylinder... The center of the mouth should be a little more to the right as well, I think... I'm tired now but I had to post, I'm addicted
    Oh and the usual slope on the top of the head... I can't explain it more now.

    I'm sorry for this messy blurb, I try to behave in the future.

    Awesome expression on the first woman! You are right that the perspective of the second woman's mouth is a little off, but it's still a good study. All you would have to do to fix the mouth I think is shade the bottom lip a little more evenly with the darker tones you have on it.

    Try to widen your value range more. Determine the direction of a light source and begin darkening areas that receive less light and highlighting areas that receive more light. Also, keep in mind when to use gradual shading (in areas that are more round, like how light is distributed along a sphere) and more abrupt changes in the shade (in areas that are more angular, like how light is distributed along a cube). These are some things to think about for your next drawing. I admire your dedication. Keep it up bud.

    Those faces still looks a little messed up. Make sure to flip them when you are drawing to get a fresh look. If you are using pen and paper, look on your pictures thru the mirror. You will avoid such mistakes like wrongly placed lips, or other anatomical issues. Wish you luck, and keep posting. I'll try to visit CA more often, cause I'm skipping to many of your updates xD.

    Teresa - Initial concepts - step 1

    Hi everyone,

    shiNIN - hello there mate, Thanks for the crits as always. im not completely comfortable with drawing lips in different perspectives, still. But ill remedy it soon. Yeah thinking it as a cylindrical object would solve the problem i guess. thanks for the tips. Oh btw you can write anything you want here mate as long as you dont violate the forum rules, its fine by me

    ezekrialase - hey hey, good to see you back in action mate. Glad that you like the 'Thalestris' concepts and thanks a lot for the tips. i guess have to do a 'Lips' study soon!

    TacoMeat - hello there mate. Glad that you dropped by. Yeah i recall you mentioning this to me sometime back as well. Im sorry, i was really busy with the face studies and i was really careless with my linework. But this week ill dedicate some time to go through some books and slowly get this fixed. Thanks for all the tips mate. I appreciate it.

    Kungfoowiz - hey bro, glad that you like em. Still they are far from being perfect but ill get there! thanks mate

    Ramalooke - hello my friend. After long time eh? yeah i remember you mentioning this to me before as well. I tried it once but i couldn't make head or tails out of it. But today i think i found the true advantage of this neat little trick! thanks mate. much appreciated.

    Well lets get to the updates....

    Two months in CA - 2nd milestone

Special thanks to 'Snake', shiNIN', 'Ramalooke', 'Kiwigarbage' ,'Bethany', 'Sivonja' , 'Kungfoowiz', 'equilerex' and everyone else who has helped me out in someway. Im greatful for your kindness.

    Well, happy two month anniversary my great friend!!!
    Let's open a bottle of something.
    You improved more than I expected I have to admit.
    You are a real hard worked and you deserve this all.
    Very nicely done Milestone billboard, I like it very much.
    This all shows, how serious and dedicated you are in your art journey.
    I am totally proud, and happy to have a buddy like you are.
    Improvement in drawing faces is so obvious. There is still a long
    road ahead of us, but the most important is that you are laying down
    a good and solid foundations.
    Best wishes my friend on your further journey.

    As far as I remember, it's a much more impressive montage than the previous one You're on the right way
    I agree with everything Snake said, I drink one to your health and spirit now

    Yay, Teresa! No, she isn't one of my favourite chars, it's just Alvaro can't draw, I'm his illustrator and he has ideas involving Teresa as his motorbike *sigh*

    The same problem than before, the face is too big for the head. She has a forced smile and her neck and shoulder area isn't well defined.
    But she's definitely pretty and her face is okay for a calm proud one, thanks, I will tell Alvaro, he will be happy

    ChoW#229 :: The Serial Killer - Initial concpets

    Hi everyone,

    @ Snake - Hello there mate. Thanks a lot. It means lot to me. I wish you all the best too mate. Opens up a Champagne. *Cheers*

    @ shiNIN - Hello there my friend. come join us for a drink! Best wishes to you too. btw ill do another good concept for Teresa. ill keep doing it until i get it perfect (or near it). Thanks for everything

    @ poetry man - Hello there. Thanks for visiting my sb mate and for the encouragement too

    Now to the updates.....


    ChoW#229 :: The Serial Killer


    Here goes my humble concept for this week's ChoW. I have included all the fact findings and the justifications. I dont have enough pencil skills or anatomy knowledge yet to design the character i really wanted to . so i kept it within my limitations.enjoy!

    Background story

    She goes by the name 'Tiger Lilly'. Its rumored she leaves a Tiger Lily on the cold dead body of her victims. They say she's an elf and her mother used to torture her when she was a child. Driven mad by pain and anguish she has now become a cold blooded, hunter of night. Person who saw her last mentioned she was camping near the forgotten tower, a place where an evil countess was crucified. He went missing after few hours.

    Character design details and justification.

    1.Environmental setting - Winter/snow ; resembles coldness of her killings.

    2. Tiger Lily - Red-orange color of the Tiger Lily resembles her appetite for killing, basically for pleasure and mental stimulation. through a flower, I also wanted to give a subtle message of 'Every dark cloud has a silver lining'. she may have some good qualities but no one may never know.

    3. Necklace of fingers - She cuts off the thumbs of her victims and attaches them to her necklace. It contains 3 thumbs resembling 3 kills. I also wanted to make one thumb look like its been recently cut off from a victim, and others look like they are decaying, to show theres been 'cool-down' periods between the murders. but i just kept it like this for now.

    4. scars on her cheek - Each scar resembles a kill.

    5. Earing - It bears the symbol Loviatar the maiden goddess who resembles (Pain, Hurt, Agony,Torture and suffering). I just wanted to show shes a patron of Loviatar. (according to Dungeons and Dragons rules)

    6. Circlet- I Made this symbol myself. Crescent resembles night and the three lines for number 3. so its symbolizes 3AM, the unholy hour. ( just wanted to spice up the story)

    7. Weapon - She uses a 'Flail' which is the favored weapon of her deity. Adds to her brutal nature. (according to Dungeons and Dragons rules)

    Fact findings

    I tried to find out more information about serial killers. Do they have any distinctive facial features. well i couldn't come to a clear conclusion because in most cases they all looked normal.

    Know about serial killers before you design.
