Thanks Naidy .
Few more sketches - didn't get much time today. The first was using a reference of Grunt from Mass Effect.

A couple of really quick landscape studies, because I'm really bad at them! About 15 minutes each, from reference.

Don't seem to be getting much time at all recently. Some sketches of a semi-aquatic race I am designing, thinking about how they would look different to each other.

Some sketches for this week's C.O.W. Not really happy with any of them, or my progress recently. Have a long way to go!

Back after a long break!
Trying to work on my design, going through some old Chows for inspiration :p. This one is a kind-of steampunk dragon hunter. Planning more sketches for the thumbnails to push my design more.

Some interesting designs in here! I love your silhouettes, but they seem to lose something once you get to the full designs. I think part of it is just kind of an awkward tilt - in the latest one, the silhouette reads as though the character is facing more to the left, but when you draw it in, they're facing more forward. Maybe some more thought about local value would also help it read better.
And some tips on the landscapes - they're really not that bad, but they're missing a certain sharpness. Try using some more opaque brushes, at least in spots, to really carve out the edges.

Another sketch for the silhouettes above. Working on Revidescent's feedback and moved her to face more to the side.
Revidescent: Thanks for the feedback . I agree that my silhouette lost something in the final one - I couldn't quite place what it was though. With the landscapes, I will try using harder brushes next time. Landscapes in general are completely overwhelming to me when I try and paint them, so I was just trying to get the basics (i.e. something that looks like a landscape at all!).

Not sure if my posts are getting through because apparently they have to be moderated before posting , but here goes!
Another sketch on a different silhouette and some general sketches for the silhouettes I liked. Trying to loosen up my design cause I get hung up on detail easily.

Hm, turns out it was just one post a few days ago that didn't get through.
Revidescent: Thanks for the feedback . I agree that my silhouettes do tend to lose something when I start working on them more. I couldn't quite place why for that one though, so I tried doing a sketch with her facing more to the side like you said and I think it improved a bit. As for the landscapes, I will try using some harder brushes. Landscapes in general are so overwhelming to me - I just don't know where to start so I was trying to get the basic shapes and colours!
