    nice progress! one thing i would suggest is try working with figure silhouettes, and analyze the silhouettes of figures in your paintings to see how they could be improved, strengthening the action that way will be a big step up

    Hey, great works in here. I especially like the works in your 'Shady' blog.

    Also, the line strength in your ink works are great. However, as a nitpicking, I think you could look into the underlying forms a little more. Right now a lot of really well-rendered works are suffering because of a lack of rhythm and/or well-proportioned gesture. Some rapid gesture sketching from websites such as lovecastle.org should make your works even more kickass in no time.

    Overall, I think your works is shaping up really well. You should update more.

    @Mila - thanks dude, will surely try putting up more stuff and please do give me feedback too cos I am learning on my own and you guys are the only ones who can help out
    @sharon - will try finishing it soon.
    @Vritra, thanks for checking out my sketchbook and I do appreciate the feedback, I think I have heard this feedback from 3 people already so "rhythm" is definitely missing in my art, so I will get started on some life sketches and get better

    You should work more with contrasts, as you have some interesting creature designs, but they seem to look flat. Maybe you ned to take out the "outlines" and use some colors that are darker and lighters, so the image pops out a little more. Work with dark/light contrastes aswell. At the moment i see that you like to work with saturated against desatureted colors.

    @Qikalain thank you so much for the feedback but could you show me some examples by the contrast studies you were talking about? like some examples would be great and it would really help me to understand better and do better art, I usually don't leave lines in my work unless its incomplete or if they're sketches ,I haven't done a finished piece in a year sadly :/

    and here are some copic as well as some perspective studies and a painting of a flower done in Painter, please do give me feedback

    Love the updates man. Really interesting concepts, you should take your time and finish up a few of those. The marker sketches are really nice. I like the fact that you manage the symmetry even in some of the more complex designs. I really need to work on that. The only thing i can suggest is watch out for the proportions on the figures in general. Although some are distorted on purpose i can see. Keep them coming. Also sending you a request on fb, i go by the name shadowz awf sinn (yeah, dont ask XD)

    Was sitting in my office, listening to music,browsing around, being all light hearted & then I come across Feng Zhu and Darren Yeow's posts on Facebook about Francis Tsai and his health.. such a sad thing to happen, am really at a loss for words and almost in tears...
    this is not how..things should be..
    Francis Tsai lost the ability to use his hands and really... for an artist to lose something as precious as his hands is so scary and heart breaking I just don't know how depressing it must be for him.. I pray he has loved ones around him helping him out and supporting him... he even tried drawing with his feet and now has lost even the use of his feet... this is not the way things are supposed to be...
    I don't know this man personally.. but it still is hitting me real bad right now... am hiding my emotions here at office..
    For those of you who want to help this beautiful man please do check out his website http://francistsaistore.storenvy.com/ ,every purchase made will be used to make him get better.

    @Flaskpost - thank you so much for those kind words and for visiting my sketchbook
    @giby- Hi there I am currently working for a gaming company but we don't do art like what I draw and thanks for stopping by my thread really appreciate it and glad that you like my work

    thanks Vritra, I need to do more exploration right?
    @blazingdimensions - thank you so much do let me know what you think of these new updates too ^__^

    I have tried experimenting with these sketches as Qikalain had mentioned earlier about using different contrasts in an image, I still need to do more to get the hang of it and also I got my hands on some good colerase blue pencils for rough drawing, and it really helps, worked on them with the mech walkers

    Digging the alchemy thumbs man.
    As for your colour pieces, try working with more values / contrast. Do a lot of black and white sketching. Put them all together and see how they behave next to eachother.

    Another thing that helps when I'm working with colour pieces, is that I tend to use my action-key for greyscale a lot. A single keystroke and my entire image turns into greyscale. That way I can quickly and easily check if the contrast is still correct. Ctrl-z and it changes back.

    Keep it up

    Hey.

    I hope you don't mind my little overpaint (if yes, im going to take it down)

    What I tried to say is that you use a lot of muted colors, so there is no real contrast in your paintings. if we say 1 is the lightest color and 10 is the brightest, all your colors are nearlly on the same level 4-6. It helps to work with lighter and darker colors, then you can add muted and saturated colors and play with them. There are many different types of contrasts (black and white contrast, cold-warm contrast, rough against fine details, complementary colors, etc)

    A lot of that work reminds me of my older work for some reason. I don't know when and how i started to get away from this muted paintings, but someday it clicked. Sometimes its helpful if you push the contrast balance a lot and then put it back, the image will look greyish. This helps to identify the problem.

    Hope I could help you a bit


    (P.S. On that goblin-thing I removed the lightning stuff on the arm, so the focus is on the torso/head, not because I dont like it)

    I don't mind at all
    actually I am really happy that you are helping me to understand
    I got too used to using a muted background ever since i watched some video tutorial ages ago
    but yea I do get what you mean, and thank you so much for your time in explaining these good pointers out and I will work on these things and put some stuff up soon and please free to let me know if there's anything else that my works are lacking in
    thank you so much
