Damn, your newest portrait is so much better than the others. Good job!
AllyAlbon Thank you very much
Ramalooke Thanks bro, to be honest it still looks nothing like me so i still have a long way to go. I'll get there eventually ;p
Trying to do more stuff from imagination, plus i have some stuff i'm working on to try building some sort of portfolio so that will come soon also.
Mooooooooooore Loomis studies plus applied loomis imagination studies
Quick swamp studies related to piece im working on
some c.o.w idea which will likely never get finished
No studies as such, just abit random stuff from imagination
doodle before bed
portrait from imagination
character which im thinkin of callin done, because ive spent too much time on it and lost motivation with it. Thanks to Dan Warren and John Silva for their help during the process.
small update before bed,
crappy sketchy face thing
gonna post more imagination stuff and sketchbook tomorrow. Ive been wanting to do more concept art/ illustration stuff, but speed and imagination stuff dont work well fro me. Need to find new ways of working...
Great Portraits on your sketchbook, but hand on those environments, they're awesome as well!
Risen from the Dead
I think that the year 2011 was very huge for your
art career. You made some incredible improvements
thanks to your dedication and to your hard work.
Massive updates with a lot effort put into them, simply
amazing. This would be the part where I should put in
some advice, but generally you are doing everything so
I know that you are also reading books and following
other tutorials, I guess then nothing can go wrong.
If I have to mention something, that would be the mistake
of rendering things out before they are the right proportion.
This is a mistake that I am also doing after a lot of training.
The foundation MUST be good before you go into rendering.
Plenty of your portraits have issues with the eyes. I know
it is very difficult to draw/paint two eyes with almost the
same attributes. It's tricky and it requires a lot of practice.
I saw some of them solved this with digital art by copy/pasting
and flipping the first painted eye.
Bottom line is that you are still young and if you keep up this
attitude and work ethic the sky will be the limit for you.
So I hope that you had a nice Christmas and that you
are enjoying your holidays. Keep on working hard and take care.
thedestroyer Cheers man, environments are something i know very little about and need to study more, thanks for your compliments
LtPlissken Thanks for the lengthy crit man! Your right of course, and focusing on getting my base solid before rendering is something ill work on. Faces have always been my weakness, which is why ive probably grown an obsession with drawing them constantly 0_o.
So much has happened this year, and yet its gone so fast, i just want to get beter, and do this for a living, that is my goal and desire. Thanks again man, and i hope your xmas was a good one also
Sorry for the crappy quality of these drawings, i took them with my camera instead of scanning them for speed. I just want to show that ive not been lazy with my pencils over xmas period, and have gone back to the beginnings on drawing figures.
Oh, and also a swamp elder illustration for the crimson daggers challenge.
Cool stuff mate. Your rendering is improving, maybe try working more on composition and design. You may find this resource usefull http://www.cgsociety.org/index.php/C...ition_tutorial keep pushing. it's always very inspirational to view your sketchbook. cheers!

taking the risk to sound repetitive, I have to say there is an incredible improvement from the beginning to that point. The studies are paying off a lot, man. Love to see that massive posts full of hard work. I´d like to see some more fantasy stuff taken to a finished and detailed state, just to see how far you can push yourself.
all the best!
Ramalooke That link is awesome, i new nothing of this before now ;p so thanks for sharing that. And thanks for your constant support dude, if i can inspire others to push further thats awesome, it works both ways
Ricardo Robles Hey man, thanks for looking through my work and the inspirational words. I'll try and push more finished stuff to a beter quality. Hopefully one day i'll get my stuff lookin as awesome as yours

Man I just browsed these 6 pages, you got real good, the last autoportraits are vivid and clear shaped, with more acurate tones and colors. Nice job, and your studies are quite thorough too. Keep it up, and thanks for your comment on my page!
All the best,
Your digital paintings quality and originality is
rapidly increasing. That enviro that Kendall
posted is great indeed. Wish you all the
best in this year.
