    Looking good.
    Especially your lines are coming along very nice!

    And now push some more anatomy studies and stop doing these lame digitals. A) Take your time for the digitals until your happy with them or B) Use the time for stuff that takes less time. They look too rushed.

    Anyways keep going.
    All the stuff will come along with time. :3

    Nemome - Thanks for the feedback man! Really appreciate it!


    anatomy stuffs...all hands from life ( my left hand ) , poses and heads are from mind
    I've grouped them two by two A4 pages, cuz i think you don't need to see too much details









    sketchbook page fur fun



    something I'm having fun with at the moment... got inspired after watching Silent Hill... thinking of doing some pyramid head fan art...definitely would be cool

    Yey, I did a lot of work today ^^
    grouped them by twos, every page is A4 size as usual

    some hands from life to warm up



    accordingly gotta draw some feet



    moving up : legs



    poses from reference



    Hogarth studies



    top of the body now - Heads
    These are from reference



    and these are from mind





    3 still lifes- an onion, an apple ( with some cheesy effects lol ) and a lamp thing painted with full opacity..damn that's difficult







    and finally a 2hr 30mins sketch, trying to get an "in-game" kind of feeling. Going to paint a character in the front...or at least i plan to...

    That IS quite an apple. I like seeing that many studies of the figure. I've filled a sketchbook or two with anatomy stuff, nowhere near enough to make me any good at it, but it's a step in the direction, so keep going with these! Don't forget to do a longer piece too, to really analyze things. Don't skip on the construction before drawing the features and everything else in, it will save your ass. Just my two cents ;]

    Man, your colours are looking awesome, really energetic stuff.

    The girl with the piglike nose - the problem you're having is that her nose is at a wildly different angle than the rest of her face. Her head's not even tilted up enough to see the underside of her chin; to see that much of her nose, you'd see most of her chin's underside. Look at this ref and this ref - the second one has a nose at about the angle of your image, and see the angle of the rest of the head? The features are narrow, very close together, and curved around the face, and the underside of his chin is almost a triangle. The first reference image has a couple of shots closer to the face you painted, but even then, the features are starting to wrap around the head, and you're seeing a little more chin. =)

    Hey!!

    warburton - Thanks man! I've been trying to improve on my colors, so it feels great with you saying that

    Murderotic - Thank you for the comment! I'm glad you like my stuffffffffs

    Revidescent - Woah, that's some sound advice, dude! You're right about everything of course. I've always had trouble with the lifted head, but with a lot of work, thinking and returnig to your advices I should be able to do it!



    Sooo I haven't updated in a while...Pretty great stuff happening, this has been my busiest month evah and i know it'll get even worse...which is great...
    I got my first bigger job offers, got through my exhibit here, I'm soon finalizing my university application stuff and I'm going to have to make that big choice. I think I'm routing towards Norwich, England with Game Art and Design. I'm excited because it also allows you to do traditional studying as well, like live model sketching, or oil painting and such. The bad side is I'll have to take out a loan, that I will reaaaallly hate paying off, but hey! that's life
    riight... and about art...
    I'll be posting only some of the digital stuffs i've been doing. I'll post some of the more interesting sketchbook pages later

    so, some goofing around for a start









    trying out some quick character



    finished this thing... not a really great result, but it felt good getting it off my chest



    I did a collab with a friend ( sketchbook - click! ), it was really fun. The idea of it is : someone sketches something really quick, then the other person takes over for about an hour without any guidance for the direction of the piece, then the first person again and so on. It's very liberating and it feels great! So here is what we did

    her


    me


    her


    me


    her


    me


    her


    this is where she quit and left me to do whatever I wanted

    end result:



    and finally two photo studies, first one is about three hours from a beautiful photo made by Errikos Andreou ( around 3 hours ), the second one is of a friends photo that I liked so much I just had to paint ( around 5 hours )

    This is a series of 1 hour paintings I started doing as an exercise. It's great for speed, technique and other stuff, but in the end you still gotta put in the hours to really have a satisfying picture.

    I will attempt doing screencap studies of every episode of Game of Thrones ( Composition, lighting, colors and story are awesome ) in order to get better at painting, since I obviously suck waay too much for the time I've been painting. I need some progress NAO! I already showed the first four studies from S01EP01, so here are the rest and a completed card I'll be doing for myself.

    Viserys warning his sister not to wake the dragon.



    Khal Drogo meeting his future wife Daenerys Targaryen.



    The Mother of Dragons unknowingly grabbing for the first time one of her children.



    Khal Drogo and Daenerys's first night together.

    WOW! Those game of thrones studies are really gorgeous! Your painting is coming along amazingly . What I think you might need some practice in is clothes, your characters and faces are coming along really well, but in some of them the clothes bring down the overall awesomeness of the piece. If you've been on pinterest, thats a great place to find references for interesting more fantasy clothing (especially if you search for whole boards)-http://pinterest.com/search/boards/?q=fantasy+clothes
    http://pinterest.com/maryjonunes/steampunk-clothes/
    and heres a good one for loads of pictures of normal people- http://hel-looks.com/20130507_09/

    cgaddict - Thank you,man! I'm really glad that you think I work hard, because for the last month I've been pounding on myself for not working harder.Now that all my highschool exams are over ( the last one was today - 4 hours ago ), I can REALLY work hard.

    malacandrax - You're absolutely right! My clothes suck so much. I actually have the whole gallery of hel-looks on my computer ( whoever wants me to send it to them, just PM me ), But I haven't done a lot of studies from them. Now that I have more free time, I'm gonna do loads of those and alongside the GoT studies, I think I might just be able to get over my clothing incapabilities...

    heheboy - Thank you!! What I love the most from comments is when someone tells me I inspired them! It's just soo unbelievable to me. Thank you for the comment!!





    Well this just happens to be the 200th painting ( not sketch ) in my folder, also tomorrow I gotta take an exam in order to graduate high school, so instead of studying I painted this Hope you like it!




    and process

    That's a lot of stuff! I like the hand studies. Keep it coming! Don't forget to use what you've learned from those studies too, a painting or two in between those studies is always good ;]

    TNiznet - Hey, buddy! Thanks for coming by!

    razz - Thanks, man! That's a great advice!


    yey, painting stuff!

    anyway, right when CA was closed...AGAIN... my high school prom passed, so the night before that I painted something to express my feelings for it

    here it is :



    here are some studies







    a scribbly doodle



    and here is something I'm working on for a client. I've been on this all day, and at the end things started shifting in the wrong direction, so I decided to take some time, post a much needed update here, watch some "Mike & Molly" and come back to it to look at it from a new perspective, because if I keep painting it's just going to get worse and worse and worse and worse and worse.


    and worse.




    aanyway, that's pretty much it...
    cheers!

    okaaay, so I accidentally deleted my Google account and so my Picasa online gallery got deleted too. All of the images in my sketchbooks are with externel links with IMG tags, so that's why they're all invalid. I tried reuploading every single image on CA.org, but I got to the third page and I quit. So that's why there are triangles instead of images.


    Here's some quick sketches -















    aand studies -



























    The latest version of the client painting -



    I just figured I should put in some actual "sketchbook" stuff in my sketchbook, so here are 5 random pages
