I've been very busy with school lately, but luckily it's over now and i have more time to paint&draw, jei!So here's some fresh stuff - it's not much, but more to come, soon!!
draw, draw, draw!!!
PS!I also made a tumblr page, which you are welcome to visit
Thanks everyone for kind comments, i appreciate it,i really do!
I present my belated chow entry no-one ever saw..BUT i finished it, which is the most important(i have problems with finishing my pieces btw). Included steps and a enviro. sketch i' d like to finish one day.
PS!Question concerning pen pressure:I use absolute default stuff, opacity and flow set to pressure and always 100%. And the 2nd dude in the post #153 is finished for me, i just don't want to overdo it - let him keep his looseness.
Dig your work man. Lots of interesting ideas here and some excellent studies and drawings. You've got a strong understanding of values and pretty solid line work too.
One thing I would mention about your line work is that I see that you go over your lines a lot, like you're scratching at them. Try going for getting it right with 1 or 2 lines, just challenge yourself with use of less lines. Also, in some of your work the proportions of the figure are off so always pay attention to that since proportions are one of the hardest things to capture.
And i' m glad if i can help someone with my stuff
1 or 2 line challenge does seem interesting - i'll get to it once i have some good ideas. Here's a couple of studies and thumbs for current chow. would be great to try a new approach on this week's topic.
I love your rougher sketches man, like this one and this one. Very fluid and confident, and the poses are great. I'd like to see the process you go through on these, whether it's lines first or straight into painting, it'd be interesting. Keep it up man.

Your sketchbook is quickly turning into my favorite, obier!
Can you elaborate at all on your process for these recent character paintings? I love the texture that you end up creating. Are you using a special brush? It looks like you use a similar brush in that environment piece in post #163...? I'd love to know how you achieve that effect!
Keep it up, you're rocking!

Thanks for support guys! I took some time off, but i´ll continue from where i stopped. I tried to make things fancier without losing all the flow from the pose - i must say, it´s quite difficult.
@Syle I use default chalc. brush and a few more brushes, which aren´t so special actually. For example: one is a square brush with some texture and dualbrush applied to it.
I love a lot of the loose and painterly qualities that you achieve while still depicting things clearly enough to read.
With some of these last posts showing a further refinement, I can see this thread really turning into something great.
I love the ghost painter image, but I would adjust the texture for the water to show the perspective a bit more.
I can see that the texture fades off as it recedes due to atmosphere, but in the areas closer to the figure, there doesn't seem to be any variation in the thickness of the water ridges and it may flatten out just a bit.
It'd be the slightest change but even the smallest things can help sometimes. With that said, it's already an awesome image!
