    Update. Not really anything behind this. It's really boring piece but rendering ice is alot of fun.

    Aww man. Even the dragon looks relaxed. I'm relaxed just looking at it.

    We are all relaxed.

    Nice ice rendering up there. Very 'solid'.

    Tacijana, Mila, BenjaminJL92: Thanks guys!

    ----

    Really quick studies just focusing on colour. Was trying to figure something out. Also a crappy SP. Does not have the likeness and has aloooot of anatomy issues but was fun to do. I just kinda called it off after a while.

    edit: took down the SP, was really bad.

    Wippy. Doesn't look like anything I imagined so I don't know if I'm going to finish it.

    Whoa. Looks like a giant worm from a space time wormhole? Not a good sign for Enterprise. And alike.

    Tacijana: thanks alot! Glad you like it I'm not sure what to think of it myself

    Here, have some shoes!

    Not as tight still-lifes as of late. I didn't finish the 2nd one as I've been drawing for like 12 hours today and my head is starting to hurt. Also did one selfportrait, another still life and some other stuff but boy were those crap, not gonna post those.

    MeteorCat & Mila: thanks alot guys! Glad you like it.

    ---

    One more. I didn't spend as much time on this one and it shows. I find it really hard to draw things in hard artificial light, especially with really bright objects ie. the orange shirt in the background. I feel like I can't go saturated enough. Plus because of the strong light the more I look at it the more contrast I see.

    Also did a quick self-portrait and stuff again but was pretty crap. I try to do at least one SP a day, hopefully it'll help. We'll see how long I can keep it up.

    Those shoes are fantastic! And I love the texture on the tie.

    Sorry, all I'm capable of is poorly expressed admiration and appreciation, when it comes to feedback..I'm new in ALL of this *makes a gesture with her arms around her*

    But I think sometimes 'not feeling like it' is quite okay... Still admirable thou, what you can produce when you're not feelin' it

    Cheers!

    Your edge control is superb, and the still-life's are amazing. I also enjoy the bits of details you scatter in the landscape around unfinished creatures. Very nice work.

    Nice range of sketches you've got here, the digital scenery's coming along nicely. Would like to see more linework though. And keep it loose, that's key!

    Great work overall, keep it up.

    Amerasu: Thanks!

    Tacijana: Thanks alot! Heh yeah I usually just try to draw even if I don't feel like it. I often feel like if I give up now, next time I might not even start drawing. Just gotta keep pushing.

    jedininjaman: Thanks for your kind words! I think my edges (among other things) are horrible. If I manage to get something good going on I feel like I just got lucky and it's not because I understood what I was doing.

    MeteorCat: Thanks a bunch! I don't like my own paintings and see mostly only the mistakes so I have no idea what to tell you Just keep drawing!

    The_Flying_Dutchman: Thanks! Lines are definitely one of my weakest areas (among other things x.x) I do some traditional stuff but they rarely end up here.

    ---

    Craaap. I was messing around a bit with the one I did yesterday, trying to figure out if I could somehow keep the looseness and energy while still making it more detailed and read well. Needless to say this didn't work out. Theres not much changes on the painting even though I worked a bit on it, just doing something and erasing it the next moment. Gonna post it anyway even though it got worse.

    Also some scribbling and today's SP. I don't really know if these are getting any better, atleast the likeness is not there. I seem to grasp a better understanding the mistakes I'm making though so I guess they're helping.

    I noticed you're doing several SP's lately. Is this something of a regular study? If so, how do you do it? Do you use a mirror or take a snapshot and paint from the picture?

    I tossed you 5 stars, but it wasn't enough to bump you up from the four you already had...oh well. I'm not sure why you aren't rated higher yet.

    Anyhoo, loving all the studies and paintings lately man, very strong colours and textures going on here. I was a little surprised with the self portraits though since they seem at least in my eyes visibly much weaker than your other stuff. I think it looks too...plastic, as though you are trying to render it all smooth (and the forms aren't reading as well as they could the way you are handling them). Get some of the more painterly look you manage in you other painting. Get some nice textures. Get more colour variation. You do it in everything else, so why not your self portraits?

    Mila: Yeah I've been trying to do one a day. They're all done from mirror, that's why they're so unbelievably bad.

    Hair Fish: Thanks man! I have a collection of brushes from different artists. Mostly I'm just using a regular round brush but lately I've been experimenting a bit with more textured brushes.

    Andrew Sonea: Thanks! Haha don't worry about it, this shit doesn't deserve 5 stars. Thanks alot for the crit. You're right, the SPs are horrible. I think it's because I get too occupied with getting likeness down so that I forget everything else, it just becomes little scribbling trying to get everything right. I've done few SPs during the last few days trying to be more loose and textured as you advised but so far they've been pretty bad. I'll post a new one when I manage to do something worth showing. Overall the reason for the SPs it not really to get finished good looking portraits but to get the likeness down, thats not a reason for not getting more textures down.

    I really should try to get some better lighting here, I think thats partly why I don't seem to get any of the planes read.

    Thanks for the crit!
