    Hey Guys,

    Here's a couple of studies and my WIP for the Monthly challenge "Death". Any critque on these would be great. Can't improve without knowing where I'm going wrong :o) So please help me lol

    Value Studies (Around 90 minutes each)





    And here's my WIP for the monthly. For my image I wanted to show the "reaper" or "god of death" exracting a bad soul to cast it into hell. This process does not involve the nice quick edge of the sythe but instead having your soul dragged out causing pain like no other. I was going to have the soul red but I think it's better that only the reaper can see the bad in the souls.

    Really need help with this I seem to be having problems with the soul anatomy and if the colours are working.



    Cheers Guys.

    Always looking for feedback, so feel free to stop by any of these, cheers.

    Fishysmell: Cheers for the feedback, I've already found that useful.

    Here's another study for tonight. Just focusing on colours for this one, it was really difficult not using the colour picker but I'm happy with the results.

    Feedback welcomed.



    Cheers guys.

    Wow, a lot of creativitiy in this sketchbook!
    I like your loose coloring style, definded in the right areas and vague at others...
    The colors of your WIP are looking fine to me.
    Sorry, can't find critique right now.

    Nicky: Hey man, thanks for dropping in. Glad you like the studies I'm aiming to do many more :o)

    Lyraina: Thanks for the feedback.

    N1frit: Hey, cheers for feedback, hopefully I can start being more comfortable using soft brushes. At the moment I find them a too vague, I was hoping these studies will help my loosen up more.

    Noro: Hey Noro, Glad you like my stuff. Hopefully I'll be able to apply some of the stuff I've learnt doing these studies on my imagiative stuff.

    Talking of imaginative stuff I have an update on my IFX monthly challenge "Death"
    Any feedback on this would be great guys, cheers. Please tear it to pieces, but don't confuse me with it all :oP



    Cheers.

    Okies guys, here's some studies AlexTooth suggested I do. Hopefully doing more of these will help me relax and loosen up. Each took around 15-20 minutes.

    Feedback appreciated, cheers.

    Ooh I love how much texture all your work has. Those environment studies are looking good - spot on colours.

    Hey Riox, appreciate the post in my sketchbook and I wandered on over to check your stuff. Keep pushing on the studies front. I would track down "Creative Perspective for Artists and Illustrators" By Watson. He goes over constructive drawing and some serious perspective sweetness, something I think you would dig. Keep rocking gangster.

    Trixtar: Hey Trixtar, thanks for the feedback. Glad you like my images, means a lot.

    Hey guys, needed to drop in with a new WIP. This is for another challenge on IFX, the brief is to design a scarecrow character that kills people every halloween. Obvious sort of thing with halloween coming. I'm mainly looking for ideas for the background because at the moment I'm struggling to visualise something.

    Any feedback on this or anything else, would be great, cheers.

    Amazing work in here man! Really love your work, your Death piece is look awesome! Only thing that is kinda bothering me is the 2 brighter lights (candles?) on the right hand side, really draw my eye, contrast is just a little too much in my opinion

    Keep up the awesomeness!

    Jailhouserock: Hey man, cheers for the feedback. I can totally see what you mean with the death piece. I have just realised that the lights are very bright in value compared to the rest of the image, which is quite distracting. I will definatly look out for that in my next image. Live and learn as they say.

    Hey guys, just a quick update.

    WIP 2


    Feedback always welcomed and greatly appreciated, cheers.

    Hey guys, dropping in with a new character design. I need help taking this guy forward because I seem to be a little stuck.

    The idea of the character is that he has grown up in this wasteland and all he knows is how to survive and hunt. This is why I want to keep the costume minimal. I think the main thing I'm struggling with is the anatomy and how to go about rendering the skin in this harsh light.



    Any feedback would be great, cheers.

    I'm not sure from what perspective you are going for with the wasteland dude. I'm assuming it's from the perspective of some other dude who is crouching/dying on the ground.

    -If it's a crouching dude, you won't need to change the lengths of the legs and torso much, but the head has definitely got to be brought down a bit.
    -If it's a dying dude who's lying down and looking up, you'd need to lengthen the legs and still bring down the head.

    Fishysmell: Hey, cheers again for the feedback and paintover. I actually used a photo ref for the pose however the guy in the image was bigger than I wanted, so that may be why it looks wrong. Also the camera must have been positioned on the floor at an angle and shot upwards. So I think the drop shadow on the floor is also misleading because it seems to be going down hill instead of on a flat surface (at an angle) if your following me lol. Sorry I'm not great at explaining things.

    Right guys I regrettably I only have a small update because I haven't really had time to work on my latest WIP so I did some on my lunch today. I've also uploaded it with my perspective guidelines back in to see if it explains what I was doing better.

    Lemme know if I'm heading the right direction.



    Feedback appreciated, cheers.
