    Thanks for dropping by my SB.

    You've got a great start here.... keep painting like this

    As critique, your gray-scale paintings seems to stay in one mid range of values, and seem to lack a bit of contrast.. try to use some extreme values too to really pop out the composition.

    Thanks for your reply and your precise advice. Don't know why but I was always afraid to use the darkest darks and brighest brights.

    Well, todays update. First one's an attempt to do a still life. Second is a naked chick study and the rest are my scribbles from imagination to remember what I've learned from my anatomy studies.

    Nice studies again.

    You actually have a good understanding of values as i see in your studies.
    I have heard this from plenty of sources and learnt through practice... best practice is to set a fairly dark grey as your darkest dark and a light grey as your lightest light... paint till one point.. then take your blacks and whites(specular highlights, contact shadows etc.)... and pop out those forms... really makes a difference.

    Give it a shot.

    Keep painting

    Pretty nice studies, I mostly like your traditional stuff
    you shouldn't be afraid to use stronger contrasts when drawing digitally, though.

    I actually use this method but it doesn't seem to work well for me, i guess that's just a matter of practise. Thanks anyway.

    Lux Aeterna

    Thank you. I've actually tried to paint with acrylics a few times only, however I will certainly do it again. Would love to try out oil painting. As for my pencil stuff, well, maybe that's just a matter of taste. )

    Ok, a small up. Just some scribbles from head.

    Thanks for dropping by my humble SB. I am afraid one straight line is a bit of a long shot for me at the moment.

    Well, here we go, a small series of portraits...

    Greetings! Thanks for dipping into my pool of leeches ^^ i rlly like your Velasquez studies. Looking rlly nice indeed. About the pencil sketches ...i feel that if you are using that earthy paper it wud be way cooler if you can pop the highlights out of that paper's color medium by using sumfing like Prismacolor. White is pretty cool but it's up to you what you wanna use as long as it's light obviously that wud give a lil edge to your sketches...if you are already using shading you shud do highlight too! it's a major plus to the finish and it helps to define the form better with only a lil effort. A great practice! Keep woerkin hard!

    The space suit study came out REAL GOOD !!

    Like your anatomy studies as well.... and also your paintings, you seem to be getting the hang of skin tones nicely !!

    Keep painting
