    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!

    Thanks for looking!
    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.

    I tried elevating my tablet while drawing to keep it up but it made it a bit difficult. :c.

    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!!

    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!

    Thanks dreamer!
    Yeah my Figure drawing looks weak, but I believe the weakest aspect of my art which needs patching up is enviro painting, so I'm going to keep doing enviro studies for a while before i get back into figure drawing.

    Hey Saurabhinator!
    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.

    Keep drawing!
