    -Bluecardinal's path to improvement-

    Hi fellow concept artist's my name is Jesper. I have wanted to join this page a long time now. But my lack of passion have foiled my plans to rise up with my art skills. Them days are over I tell ye people!.

    I am now here to post studies daily(Hopefully) in the beginning. Having two jobs right now gives me little time to do studies.

    I will also post up tattoo concepts and tattoos. I work as a tattoo apprentice at True Love Hønefoss Tattoo studio in Norway.

    As said, I am here to improve! So constructive critique is gold worth for me.

    Starting now..

    Here is a quick study from a MMA photography and some more stuff.

    Great paintings! I like the expression of the boxers. But spend more time on the hands in your pencils next time. Check out Hogarths "Drawing dynamic hands" Great stuff.

    Started the morning with some more studies!

    So much improvement is needed here. I feel that my brush style is to messy and transparent. Did not like where this painting was going so I stopped in hope to get some advice.

    Advice and Critique please?

    Maybe you could try to blend the colours more? Or use a base colour first, in some places you can still seethe white of the canvas.

    Lyno: Thank's Lyno you are probably right. I am slacking to much with the ground colors. I feel I maybe should start using hard base colors. And not use fade effect on my brushes in the beginning of the painting... It becomes so messy when you zoom in..

    Tiodor: Thanks

    I would put an extra layer over the paintings, to take a look of the muscle placement and draw the important muscles out.
    Then I would correct the painting. Sometimes there is too much room of interpretation on a reference so you can mess up the anatomy.
    I always keep it mind the words of Glenn Fabry: "If it looks right, it is right, if it looks wrong it is wrong, even if it makes sense"
    So there is a very tiny place for cheating...but anyway

    For example you last picture looks correct. Look at the placement of the latissimus and where you marked serratus (check it in a book, or google). Seems to be correct so far.
    Now take a look at the paintig right before it.

    The serratus have to be "interrupted" by the external oblique(google it if you have to ), but you pulled the serratus all the way down to the abs. Be careful with that.

    Cheers, Acki
