    And now I'm coughing up blood! XD" ah... life's been a little.. distracting lately.

    @Malakuko - thank you! Yeah, you've gotta be forgiving of yourself. Just shake it off and keep going!

    Got a profile study from imagination--I often struggle with proportions here, so I'm trying to really nail those down. Though looking at it now, I should reverse the slant on the top of the head - the cranium is the highest point, on the back of the head, right? @__@" whoops.
    Also, another quick self-portrait thing, and a photo study that was really fun~ o3o

    More soon!

    oh wow I just love your sketchbook subscribing right now. I love the way you paint, your strokes are natural and lovely, your understanding of color is great, and you experiment a lot. I feel really inspired after looking through all this. Keep it up!

    @Iris; ;__; thank you. I'm trying.
    Let's all keep inspiring each other!

    Sorry for the disappearance! I got mono. Life has been high-maintenance lately.

    WIP color study/portrait (I'll post the larger, finished version and steps for it in a few days), WIP value study, and some album cover designs for a friend. I can't come up with anything I like, but these seem to be closest to representing her music that I can get. Any crits/suggestions to improve them would be greatly appreciated!

    Post #33, #55 guy on the bottom beautiful portraits. I see you are fan of disagea I recently just played the second version on ps2. Much fun, then sold my ps2 because it got too distracting for practice.
    Make a sketchbook happy, feed it a tip to improve!

    Beautiful portaits - even at the start of your sketchbook! My only crit (and it is a personal opinion) is that you paint a few more "tight" paintings (I'm sure that isn't the technical term), like the last one. I love how finished the face looks. Other than that, I can't really crit you, since you are leagues above me.

    Beautiful work!

    Your studies are ridiculous, some of them reach really great areas of detail, nice focal points and your values are on point, you might not be interested but maybe try some more environments and see how those go?

    Thank you all so much for the feedback. ;__; It's really encouraging. Even if I don't deserve the praise.

    @Pigeon; haha, yeah! I love Disgea, but haven't played in years. The item world is a little too.. time-consuming. XD
    @Jorvaa;Thanks! And I agree - especially since I've been in a few situations lately where I've needed a portfolio and have only had a collection of half-finished scribbles. XD; I'm trying to do some more finished stuff.
    @Sean; Thank you! I know, I need to do more environments. ;-; I went and painted one right after reading that. Maybe I should try EOW to make myself practice...
    @Iris; thank you!
    @Ninja; nice name, and thanks. XD

    Some actual sketchpages for my cA sketchbook (gasp), an environment based off a photo as per Sean's encouragement (thank you!), annnd a fixed-up version of an older painting some of you may recognize. I'm actually getting a spotlight page in my school's yearbook this year, and I wanted to touch up this piece before a bit for that. Still hate the hair, but eh, gotta move on. x__x"

    EDIT: yess, page three!

    More environments! I'm actually starting to enjoy these.. though they take so long to get this overall unimpressive result. XD;

    Alsooo, the Final Finished Version of the earlier portrait/"Iced Urban..." plus steps so you can see my totally inefficient work process and unnecessary detail shots. Yayyy!

    Cool stuff! You have a nice combination of soft edges and hard textures. Your recent stuff also has a lot more depth to them. New version of the sitting naked girl is awesome. Nice variation with the cold and warm colors. Keep 'em coming!

    @Myllys; thank you! Warms vs cools is one of my favorite things to focus on~ 8"D
    will do!

    Small post today - 'nother environment from a photo ref, and, in the spirit of Halloween, a quick contortionist sketch. I've always thought drawing contortionists would be such a great way to practice anatomy. They're fun~

    Keep having fun learning
