edit - pics i posted when i first came here be gone. . _.
Great job so far, I'm loving the warm flesh tones!
Lovely use of color. I'd be fascinated to see a finished image with a background. The top and third image, particularly, give an excellent feeling for the light falling on the various contours of the models' skin.

At this current time i feel like i have much to learn so I am sorry to say it might be a while before i release any "presentable" or "finished" pieces.
If from experience anyone thinks it would be more useful for a learning artist to do full pieces rather than these short incomplete pieces i would be willing to finish them up.

The paintings are rendered quite well and you have nice forms, but there are lots of proportion mistakes in your studies. For example the last one has either the head too big or the arm is too small. In most the arm looks small. 4th one looks the best. Hopefully you're reading the Loomis books or some sort of anatomy book too? Well keep up the studies and do forget to do your own stuff too.
Nice studies. They look pretty classical actually. I think you should use the pen tool to make some nice hard edges on some of the forms to really bring the figure out of the background.
Nice skin tones. could use just a little work on the faces. The nose, eyes and mouth seem to be a bit not were they supose to be.
Anyway good job,
Check out my SB and please leave a comment or something
Thanks all of you for visiting!
Yes i noticed that the proportions where all over the place. It's something i need to get better at, at the time i didn't think it would be that critical to capture the same proportions in my studies as i just wanted to look at the skin tones. I didn't correct them because i thuoght it would be a waste of time and Whenever i want to study the proportions i usually do pencil studies.
Oh and for the last one the elbow is supposed to be foreshortened into the background but i didnt finish rendering the bottom half of that pic so it looks wrong. XD.
I do look at andrew loomis and burne hoggarth.
Here are some quick 20-30 minute studies with some reference from prozac1:http://www.freedigitalphotos.net/ima...p?photogid=732

Speaking of which, who wants to see my actual sketchbooks? I'm planning to record and upload a video of me flippin through my books as i cbf scanning each induvidual page.

Oh my gosh. Your skintones are AWESOME. And your landscapes are just about as swell c:
click and crit
Heyyyy you paint nice boobies, just though I'd say, the way you did the shadows on the first girl. so good. I like your color choices when it comes to skin tones. You use a good variety of color. Your landscapes are good too, If I could crit and give some advice, work on value and color with those landscapes more. Just remember the sky isn't just blue, and the grass isn't just green... So basically apply what you do with skin tone to your landscapes Nice work overall so far, keep it going >8D
Hey, thanks for passing by my sketchbook! You've got some sweet work here, I love the way you paint skin, all warm with some nice values. The car also looks good to me, you have a fairly good sense of color. Hope to see more soon
SKETCHBOOK! IT'S FULL OF HOT RUSSIAN GIRLS WHO WANT TO MEET YOU AND WEIGHT LOSS/TEETH WHITENING SECRETS DISCOVERED BY A NEBRASKA MOM WITH NO ARMS!
The environments came out well! I'd suggest constructing the atmospheric composition more, and be careful where you add details. I'm looking at this last envo for example, and i see lots and lots of details in the back, but very few in front. And there is no fog or anything indicating that there should be less details. So my mind is telling me there is something wrong.
I've found this quite helpful when it comes to atmosphere and composition. Colour scheme as well. Perhaps it'll be useful to you as well.
Regarding your figures, i like your style. Colours are worm and welcoming as well. But i don't feel like it's always skin. It would be more interesting with a bit of blue or green or more yellow or more red in certain parts. Our skin has such great variation!
Anyway, great sketchbook start and i hope you have many more pages to come!
Yeah I'm planning to do the bottom study right from the start all over again. The fore and back ground just don't look like they're seperated in distance. My experience at making my own custom brushes and using them is low, the last piece was predominantly me experimenting with brushes.
hmmm i recommend lots of gesture studies, and form studies immediately after that...keep it up!
Holy smokes! Your digital painting skills are gorgeous! I am totally LOVING those backgrounds... ('cept that fall picture's colors are a little too bright for my tastes) Love the way you draw girls, too!
I think the first girl you drew without reference looks great, but there's something about the second one I don't like.. I think it's the shading and the way you drew her clothing. Third girl (in the armor, sorta chibi-ish thing going on) looks great though.
Keep up the awesome work!
I really like the skin tones on the first post. It just makes me soo happy! Great work, just keep pushing your values. I notice some of your posts have a small value range. Try doing some still life drawings in graphite or charcoal and really try to capture all the different tones you see.
Great work! Keep it up!!

Awesome pics and the coloring its amazing
Your coloring and imagination are your obvious strengths. Your Colors are so smooth, controlled, and beautiful indeed. You landscapes are quite good as well. However you seem to be struggling with proportion in the figure at times, so I would suggest a quantity of quick studies as opposed to quality, at first anyhow. Do some gestures and while you work hold up your pencil and physically measure out proportions and look at the angles and alignment in the figure this will help train your eyes to see these things instinctively. Keep up the wonderful work!
If you haven't checked out posemaniacs or pixelovely I recommend you do. It helps with figure studies a bunch!
Also when doing environment studies one thing to keep in mind is atmospheric perspective. As things recede towards the back, they lose contrast and become lighter in color.
