NickyBeats: thanks, it took me some time to get things right D:
Sargent Study made today:
Portrait study of Maura Davis, from Ambulette:
damn - everything from the third image down are just solid (I kind of like the first female study as well - but its' a bit wonky and there is something with the colours and how you mixed them that makes her feel a bit desaturated/dirty - you use the same strokes later on other pieces and on say the Sargent studies you instead got vibrant colours so could be the ref you used just as well.
Either way really nice

been making lots of sketches and studies on my sketchbook, posting some of them later.
just random chick
testing some colors, D: shitty face
quick color study for skin
will keep on studying! critiques are more than welcome
great start so far! One thing I might suggest is using some larger brushes. Especially when you do faces, I find things get kinda streaky. Granted I'm no digital artist but i know it helped on the view acrylic pieces I've done.
"This is a paint and pixel-splattered furnace that forges the swords of artistic mastery. This is a place where swarthy and belligerent dwarves drink turpentine mead, berate their apprentices and slap the trade into their skulls. It's where the anvils are made of graphite, the hammers are as true as rectangular marquee selections and the fires burn with the light of a thousand lensflares." --Jason Rainville
I actually like the small strokes in your work. You handle them very well. It comes off more stylish than anything else, and as stated before you've really got the command for colours.
I feel your figures from imagination are lacking the kind of depth your studies do however. They feel slightly more 2 dimentional. I'm not sure if this is because they don't posses as much contrast in their colour range? I can't really put my finger on it.
Really awesome stuff in here so far. I'm anticipating some more work from your imagination...
FlaviusChis: thanks! i'm drawing girls a lot, cause they're quite fun to do and hard as hell
wooden mango: I understand,yeah, looks kind of weird on these studies D:
Lostcookie: yeah, thanks! those are more like color studies, but depth it's something to pay attention to, will try to improve o/
Sketch, kind of lost

my sketchbook http://www.conceptart.org/forums/sho...d.php?t=173397
Really awesome stuff man! Good mix of studies with imaginative work. I really need to do alot more imaginative work ...
Also from the start of this page to that last post I can already see your lighting has gotten better. It really looks great on that last one. Dont forget how you did that!! Cant wait to see what else you come out with.
Again Lovely studies - and the personal pieces are very promising - love the fleshed out parts of the dark green piece you use as a thumb for the thread.
& the other personal pieces are nice
I should also do Zorn studies - been too long (4-5 years )
