    I'm back!
    From a far too long hiatus. But I'm not gonna bothering blabbing on with excuses. >__> (though I HAVE been creating art, just not posting it.)

    Here's something I just painted today - a study in skin tones. I think I'm gonna mess with the hair some more before I call it done, but just wanted to get it up here.

    ;__; Thanks so much for the praise, everybody. <3 That really motivates me...

    So, stuff for today! A superquick skintone study from last night, a silly and cliché warm-up from today, a stylized doodle of one of my characters from a while back, and today's big project.. a study that was supposed to be focused on cloth/the girl's dress. I ended up mostly working on the hair, though.

    I'll finish the study tomorrow, but right now her face is really bugging me. Like creepy, uncanny valley kind of bug. For some reason, I keep thinking of a frog.. anyone have any crits?

    Your use of color is really amazing. I wish I was that good... Also the shapes, the values, the sketches and so on; all really superb.
    Thanks for stopping by my sketchbook, and keep up the good work. I'll stop by again for sure : )
    If you ever have any questions, or you want help, all you need to do is shoot me a message.
    Can't hurt, right?

    You should post more. That's my critique.

    Okay, I'll try a bit harder, although my thoughts can be taken with a grain of salt. Your figure sketching style has probably changed since April, but I would suggest trying to simplify the figures some - draw them with fewer, straight lines and whatnot. Not because "that's the way to do it", of course, but just to try something a little different. I know that I often get locked into drawing one way, and it's good to shake things up a little. Try doing 30 second gesture drawings for a while, maybe?

    Very nice work either way! I like how you've managed to work texture into a bunch of your paintings. Not a very easy thing to do!

    @nicky; will do, thanks!

    @toffers; D"8 thank you so much.
    We're all students here.

    @clean; XD posting more, I can do!
    Mhm.. actually, one of the reasons I was gone for so long is cuz I was just spent a month at an art program where I drew from the figure 6-9 hours a day. It was a fantastic experience, and my figure drawing style has developed since then, but I agree that it's always good to try new exercises and I'll do some gestures later today in that style you recommend. Thank you. ^__^

    Speaking of that art program, if I can ever find the CD the photos are on, I have a collection of new drawings and some sculptures to show you guys...

    Meanwhile, here's a WIP for a portrait that's just been going downhill since I started on it, and an emotional venting piece about anxiety. I'll post s'more studies/etc later today, too.

    Thanks for all the support, everybody! ;-;

    Christ, there really are some beauties here. Love the way you use colours, the way you handle flesh on your portrait studies are brilliant. ;A;
    Good to see you're putting in some stuff from imagination too, I always think it helps you know where you're retaining information from your studies and what not.

    Now, you're way above me in terms of craft, so I can't really give good critique. Just keep on painting/drawing/studying. I love your stuff so far so I'll definitely be creeping up everynow'er then.
