Weashell, thanks! I have a bad habit of abandoning my stuff if it doesn't look half way decent right away, but usually more time working on them makes them look ok. That's how it was with that elf. I'm glad you like it.
Some more stuff. Imaginational heads, I do need to practice that!
Excellent studies and enviros! Your character on post #12 is quite good. I think you might be more satisfied with it, if you did some more research on armor and how it works. Your rendering is fantastic, but there's a lack of... realism? Or, maybe weight? I'm not sure, but I know what you mean.
holy efff! your work is great! I love your scifi work. I think you have a good handle on your enviornment and perspective! keep it up! if there is any help/tip for improvement that you could offer I will be open to it.
Shadow Stalker, yep, guilty. I did learn in the past few months the importance of doing research. Hopefully the next one will be better, thanks!
Yogeshj, I'm quite new to environments, glad you like it!
Rastaray, do you mean the elf archer in the first post or the dude with two swords? I like the one in the first post, planning to paint it someday perhaps, but the guy with two swords just lacks something and I can't quite tell what...Thanks for stopping by and the encouragement!
I tried to play with lighting and contrast of that last one. Hope you don't mind (I'll take it out if you want to)
It's a bit rough and I'm not saying that it's better than the original, but as I've already done that I think you may be interested to see it from a bit different perspective. It's probably not the way that you wanted it to be, but anyway
Tadas, thanks, mate! It does look good. Feels more 3 dimensional than mine original I think. Perhaps I tend to really go over the top with atmosphere, it ends up being too foggy. I'll probably leave this one alone though and keep this in mind for my future stuff! Thanks again!
Smallergod, glad you like 'em
Ametist, just what I aim for, thanks!
BlackDelphin, thank you! It must be helping me that I start my paintings in value only, it's not that hard to add color and detail (in color) later instead of thinking of everything at the same time.
E-nat, painting those was a lot of fun, I'm happy you like them!
Some new stuff.
Anatomy study of a bodybuilder Frank Zane and a sketch for an illustration I'll try to complete. I've already got some critique to include more storytelling elements, anything else? Please feel free to crit!
