    very nice colors man, your characters would pop out more with better backgrounds

    Fallen Angel - Thanks a lot, yes I gotta work on the backgrounds more,
    its weird that I somehow "didnt notice" that, and yet I see how I could take much more profit of the characthers by working into that

    anyway, cant start till weekend when I get my pen tablet back home from work

    by now... another drawing

    Your colors and perspective are amazing! Your backgrounds are a little flat, but they still have a lot of potential. Your art reminds me a lot of Battle Angel Alita for some reason.

    this is great my friend,can you tell us more about your working process,and what kind of synesthesia is asociated with this visual art works,thanks

    Jessibelle - Thanks!! Im glad to meet you here aswell, tho i dont know what was your name on Flickr?

    Josowicz - Im glad that you ask,
    about my process: aint much special usually look through my archive of photos to get a preview of some anathomy or body pose or face that feels like it could be nice and then start working sketches using parts and adding new parts, etc creating a composition, and adding elements
    thats pretty much about it im not too good when it comes to techniques, I just do as I think its right but I have no deep theory of "how its properly done",
    about the synesthesia that you mention, overall its pretty much a "brain fart", there is for me no deep message, specially for the more concept art oriented pieces, sometimes I do take a grasp on simbolism and abstract concept to strength and idea and suggest some trains of thought but definitely I prefer that everything is open to interpretation,
    if we paint ficticious worlds its cool that anybody can still feel like he can live in them without a philosophical pre-step needed to enter

    Juniversal - Thanks a lot, Im glad that you like

    Also, following the advices I recieved here im reworking the background for the "Liz" piece, im posting a progress, its very sketchy thing and Im working on a layer just on top of everything so I go faster, ill create a hole for the fig with a mask once Im done =)
    might do a bit deformation on the figure to match the new bg perspective aswell, but im not sure its gonna be needed,

    Looks cool,
    some crit about the pink/purple girl picture (just love that one) i think you should play a bit more with the contrast of the character and the back ground, just to make her "pop out" a bit more.

    And here is something that i thing you should give a try:

    I't's a "Ballisticpublishing" exotique 7 entries call, give it a try... with some more work spent i think you can compete on that level too.

    So I am going to ask a few questions because I really like your stuff:

    1. Are those regular moleskine sketchbooks, do they handle watercolor well? I have a Moleskine sketchbook, it got wet and left wet marks. So I am afraid that watercolor would be bad.

    2. Do you use photo reference for those girls?

    Thank you for reading.

    Vay - Hey there, just gonna repply and then im off to bed! (0:03 here)
    1.- They are the ones with the heavy pages, with a bit yellow tone, not sure if they got a special name, but as said the pages are heavy
    they dont actually handle water too good, because they've used a lot of "celulosa" (thats in spanish.. cellulose?) or silicone something that makes the pages actually a bit water repelling, I guess they did coated the pages that way cause its meant for pencil and graphite (still not the best coating for that) but still that "water-proof" quality of the paper its cool for me its produces different effects even if its technically speaking "doing it wrong"
    also there is some kind of moleskine meant for watercolors with proper paper, but its different, instead of book like its in landscape format

    2.- Yes, I use references, usually not a "whole girl" I start with a face or a bare body position and then i change the arms, legs etc and look for new references for specific parts of the body if I dont have clear how they are supposed to be.. for example in the piece named "Sacred" I used a full reference for the face, meaning I didnt stray much from the photo but then for the armor and the lancer I went mostly from memory
    on "Liz" which is the first image on the thread I went most of it by memory, and now im using references of real castles for the background
    So short answer : yes I use references, but I'm trying to avoid just nailing down photos and trying to always add, modify do this kind of "frankenstein" thing so my mind dosnt get too lazy

    Good morning,

    So I experimented a bit more with the BG on this one
    looks better now, I was holding to not break the color scheme of blue/pink but I think it was needed to add more tones so the characther indeed could break from the background and add depth

    Awesome sketchbook! Not only great art, but your positive attitude, the willingness to take crits, and excellent reworking of paintings to improve them. Your colours are so bold and energetic. Subscribed.
