    Even though it's only a finished sketch, there's still room for improvement.
    The main problem is his pose. There isn't much flow in the general character. You should have tried out different quick gestures first before going on with the sketch.
    And the foreshortening of his right arm looks somehow wrong but I think that's because of the pose.
    But the rendering and choice of colors is really nice :)
    Try to work on the gestures and you're coming along fine.

    Keep it up mate :)

    Nemome - Thanks for the critique! You're right about the pose , my dynamic poses suck

    Arteast - Thanks man!


    here's a new random painting...in the middle i got this idea to sort of give life to the crazy annoying phrase "A little birdie told me" , that is the name of the painting too



    close-up



    and some steps I hope can help somebody or shed some light on my process

    Georgi Borisov - Thank you!



    Ok , so while CA was down , I did two posts . Here they are :



    1)
    bout time for an update , huh

    Ok , so first some poses and sketches














    some drapery , my scanner went crazy in these and chopped the image , but i think you can see most of it





    last of the pencil stuff , I went out with some drawing friends , and a good friend of mine with gorgeous style drew these in my sketchbook.Nice lines , huh? You should really check out her stuff --> http://spaska.deviantart.com/



    oh , i guess i had one more pencil thing , this is a still life , A3 format so a shitty photo is all i could do...sorry...
    Around 20 hours in it.



    a quick study



    random portrait



    and one more random sketch




    Ok , I wish you all an amazing 2013!I hope you achieve all the goals you set for yourselfs.
    For me , I will try to improve myself...scratch that...I WILL improve myself! A daily update as of next year , I will lose some weight , I will work more on anatomy , I will work more on my illustration and composition skills instead of doing random characters in a blank background or doing environments with nothing in them.I will read more , instead of rewatching Seinfeld and Friends.I must do those things because , no one else will do them for me.I wish you guys all the best!


    2)
    First post for 2013!

    ok , so for the first of january , I got a massive headache I couldn't do shit all day , i tried to do some anatomy , but i managed to get through only one page before needing to lie down again.Fun stuff...This morning almost the same , but a bit better so i tried and pushed myself to do some stuff.Bridgman and a portrait of my father and sister ( she Used to do the duckface , she doesn't anymore ). I even recorded a small video , to show process , just for you guys

    Letty - Thank you , I will !

    Flügel - Thanks , man! The scary thing is that I really don't feel like I have a good understanding of depth and values...


    So the headache IS NOT STOPPING!!The morning it was okay , so i figured i'd take it easy .I ordered myself a subway sandwich ( mmmmmmmmmmmmmm , delicious...) and watched Robin Hood ( the new one with Russell Crowe , i guess not that new anymore though... )Then the headaches started again, but i said to myself that that's not going to stop me , so i sat down and started sketching some knight guy , which turned out extremely horrible ( I tend to overglow stuff waaaaaaaay too much ) , so i decided i'll do studies...and that's it.I don't know why i said all that stuff , just to share i guess.I know you guys really want to hear about my day
    Here's some stuff.

    The overglowed knighty guy



    quick shitty portrait study



    a bigger , not that shitty , study of one of mjranum's stock photos



    and a screencap study of a wonderfull scene in Lord of the Rings : The Fellowship of the Ring ( for those who don't remember it's one of the "Big Folk" in the Prancing Pony )

    Hey Othrandir. Nice updates. Starting to see some bigger strides. Your biggest weakness seems to be draftsmanship but that too has been steadily improving. So all I can really say is keep up the hard work and focus in on draftsmanship in your personal stuff.

    Pierce - Thanks for the support man! I'll do my best


    Just to drop in the two posts I could not post here , because of the CA crash

    1) more studying

    poses mostly from mind , some referenced / one page sketches to relax / a skull study , trying to do things without a sketch before , really feels like progress / a quick dino-looking creature , trying to focus on richness of color and again without a sketch













    2)
    I was so backed up with stuff , I couldn't get around to posting.Same amount though The other day I received my copies of Gurney's Color and Light and Imaginative Realism.Been doing color wheels , swatches and studies for the last two days.But they're boring so here's some funner stuff...
    a bunch of figures and sketches (some from mind , some from reference - paintings , tv shows , movies etc ) + some bridgman











    and a GoT screencap ( horrible likeness as always...)

    Damn, so much progress on this page! Your color and brushwork is coming along nicely, as well as your figure studies. Just focus on the structure of those faces, remember they have planes!
