    That character looks pretty cool, i can see that the focal point is the upper body n face, but since its just a character and not a scene, i think it'll look better if you give more definition to his clothing and feet

    Great for a beginner! Honestly the only thing I could see improvement on would be anatomy, like his torso is short for his build. If someone hasn't mentioned it already or not I would check out posemaniacs.com for practice.

    Keep up the good work!

    welcome! and definetely add more. it seems like people are eager to help these are good, but following the pointers that the others have mentioned will make them even better.

    The best parts in life are falling in love, getting your heart broken, and then finding the one that can put it back together again.

    Samurai wip2

    I elongated the torso, started rendering out the pants. took out the swords for the moment to help me visualize the body better. still feeling iffy about the neck/head connection. feedback?

    Hey i like what i see you have a great start! I think you have a good understanding of value, but you could still go darker in some areas.

    That's true about the neck, at the moment it looks like it's attached to his ear. Try moving the head a little higher up, or the shoulder muscles slightly further down. Great detail on the face, good job. And welcome to CA!

    I'm really liking the black and white wips, you seem to understand easily lights and values. I'm digging the warrior's face as well.

    I also quite enjoy the design or the orc, belt and face especially.

    Nothing really helpful comes to mind right now. But I'm really going to follow your thread!
    Maybe you could try out some custom brushes to give your characters and illustrations some texture variations?

    It's when people like you say you're a beginner that makes me feel a whole lot less good. ):

    In all seriousness, I see what you mean when you say you're a beginner. Your stuff is freakin fantastic for a 'beginner', but right now it feels a little unrefined - like you're testing stuff out but not realizing your -full- potential, or something. The only antidote to that is practicing more, and doing the CHOWs will certainly help. Can't wait to see more.

    :)

    hey zombiegrub. you know, I used to think I was pretty good when I was in elementary school, and then i stopped drawing until after I graduated college. Now im getting back into it ten years later and I look around and people are light years ahead of me.

    but yeah, you're absolutely right, I'm totally unsure of what I can do, and trying things out is where I'm at right now. I see people like dave rapoza or wes burt and im pretty much crapping my pants because they arent that much older than me, but they are stinkin amazing.

    but I was talking to my friend the other day and it's all about believing you can do it and then putting in the work. so that's the plan thx for the encouragement!
