Hey man thanks for the comment in my SB!
I don't have any real advice to offer you cause your already doing amazing work...so just keep it up!
Hey F1X, I saw your avatar on another sb and was attracted so I hopped on over here. I'm glad I did . You have some beautiful work here. Great potential. Here are some suggestions on how to improve, if you want I can go more in depth and explain, but for now I'll keep it short. I think overall you have great ideas and you paint women well, so more men would help to even you out. Try to do more life drawing and painting to push your color variation and subtlety even more. Experiment with traditional / digital brushes and settings to help give your work a fresh / personal look. Gonna subscribe and check back in often
Psychobuddy - thanks )
Ninjac - Yes I agree, but I gotta disagree about drawing men, I should draw more different things, but I dont think men its mandatory as oppossed to girls, lately I'm discovering too many mandatory things surrounding the "learn about doing concept art", and as I'm not actually dedicating profesionally to concept art so far (I'm graphic designer) I'm gonna pass on some of them
lets say I prefer to keep having fun, but I do appreacite your comment, you are also right about brushes, I gotta experiment
And now a humble update with some mad stuff
Finished this one for now, made significant changes, but shame is I still would prefer to just portrait the char alone, not 100% fancy about the dragon and the bg hummmm
the last one is sooo perverse and on the other hand balanced with lovely accents
great job, keep rocking
absolutely loving these i take it a bleach fan perhaps? if not, google barragan (or something like that)
haha, im sure you are! its a mad idea anyway. and i really like your dragonslayer final..totally jelous
Keep it up, feel free to stop by mine and crit me !
takashmen - Thanks, yes can't be 100% horror, gotta add a bit of kawaii also lol
A Faux - Thanks, actually no I never watched/read Bleach, but I googled it, hummm you might see some similitude maybe with the skeleton + naked girl one? I gotta reckon whoever draws bleach their style of doing skulls is indeed similar to mine
anyway yes i'll drop by your sb see if I can add something helpfull
for today just something I did around with a photoref

Never take your work to a therapy session my friend... Especially a female therapist (always tempting to put a space in between the e and the r)
GEB - heh, actually I think about female figures with big respect, as a complex thing, and yes probably I'm a bit out of my mind
Giorge - Thanks for the advise! if you mean I should work on line weight, thats for sure, I'm really weak on that and also line values and such
Fallenangel - Indeed, I'm still struggling when finishing complex pieces, here indeed the figure imo is nice but the dragon and the BG not so nice, not fresh
this time also my biggest problem was not having really a sketch to follow up, I started with a figure, then added some armor then added some dragon so it had problems all the way, I should really do a linework first (I've always worked like that) and then render everything, freestyling digital fantasy pieces its not working as intended :p
Razorb - Thanks!
A small update:
