Watch out when you do colors tho, seems like you're too focused on the hue of the color rather than the value, values is what makes an image pop out, color is just the icing on the cake
bogan - Thanks! rumpenstiltzkin - Thanks mate p sage - Thanks!! Verehin - I can explain you that one... well.. actually not Seage - Thanks I'm glad to read that John Silva - You are right, I'm lacking depth and volume, so thanks for pointing out I must really also work on that, which means go back doing some detailed studies, but I gotta disagree about color tho, imo its much more than just a complement, its the soul of the image!
but yes sometimes I mistake color with Light, or forget about Light, and its about both Lav - Thanks Psychobuddy - Thanks! Hai - And I've learnt a lot from the feedback, its been very enriching so far!
Kurtzund - Thanks sir merl1n - Hello, of course, cannot please all! but anyway if you see anything to criticize/improve please dont hesitate to write it down Grzessnik - Yes, I do love characters, and you see.. mostly girls, thanks for the comment Shadow Stalker - Thanks! Jephyr X - Welcome back Jephyr thanks for your comment, lets stay in the technically insane zone, hopefully not clinically so they dont put us the jacket thing :p
Now what I managed to do this last couple days, finished this piece:
You have a good understanding of form - in the figures and the creatures lying on the ground vanquished etc. will be really cool to see you mature in your skills and style.
What I admire is the constant churning and fleshing out of ideas. This in itself will take you far. Keep it fresh and growing. All the foundation work you do in studying the anatomy of humans and animals, landscapes and understanding of color within a value design will add more power to your images. Rock on!

your work is very reminiscent of erik jones' work... and i like it haha. one bit of critique tho, you shud start getting familiar with some male anatomy. it would take your work to the next level. but man the colors you use in your sketches are so unexpected (in a good way)
AztcFireFlower Thanks a lot, indeed always reinforce the basics! lets hope I can get some more time to do new stuff dU5K Thanks, Erik Jones, thats a huge compliment, he is amazing and a reference for me
About male anathomy, actually I used to do a lot of male "nature" studies, cant recall how to call that in english, with a model and such back in the days when I was still going to university, definitely should try to bring some male characthers designs, if I find the will to do it ... cause you know.. boobs... DANKA Thanks a lot! Dark_Eyes Nice!!! thanks!! very appreciated =)
Lately I've been very busy with work (I work as graphic designer for textile companies) so havent got time to do any personal or concept art stuff
only this littel drawing, planning to add a bit of color later on
TFsean - Thanks a lot, ! Bakker - alo, I guess tho value is still something I gotta work on
about liquids, I wont go too phylosophic, but the ones with that dripping thing were part of a series, the liquids are quite about concepts which are unstable, ever changing or simply confusing, realities without a form (hence the "liquidicy" NickyBeats - Thanks! Lav - xinranliu - thanks sir
Now checking again, I'm not too happy with the sketches, so Instead I will show you some of the stuff I do as graphic designer for textile: Attachment 1422759
