    #16 and #19 are just great.
    You are already quite a few steps into your journey. Keep at it and I can't wait to see some more work.

    With the creatures, try doing a lot of rough silhouettes or get different ideas down some how, before you decide on a final design. It also helps to look at real animals and think about the structure of the animal underneath- then twist and apply it to your ideas.

    BTW good start by the way, keep posting and post more often if you can

    CarbonBased: Thank you! As I said in your sketchbook, your stuff is looking good!

    Hunin: Thanks very much for the good advice . I will certainly work on silhouettes and studying real animals.

    Trying to focus more on my creature design, so working on silhouettes as suggested by Hunin . I wasn't really sure where to start so I watched this really helpful video by Mike Corriero. Had a go at the techniques he described... mine kind of look like bad rip-offs of his, but it was a lot of fun! More practice needed .

    Also, installed Painter 12 today - as a Photoshop user it's amazing, but overwhelming! Really excited though

    Lovely stuff in here! I really enjoy your silhouettes, especially. I should start doing those myself.

    I wanna see more of those aquatic people, I like them!

    Looks to me like you're on the right track! Glad I checked out this sketchbook.

    Thank you Andrew L. Lauren, Jaik and littlebones for your really kind comments .

    Just started this today. I know I need to do more studies than I have been, but I figured it's better to draw something I want than not draw at all! I want to keep working on it and get a finished piece, but I'll probably get studies done during the week.

    I can't seem to get the colour scheme right - it just feels like there's something lacking... If anyone could give me any tips I'd be really grateful!

    Quick gesture drawings - 45 seconds to 2 minutes each. First time I've done these and it was a lot of fun!

    Sorry for the bad quality - I don't have my scanner .

    Can't help with the colour scheme - but just wanted to say that I really like where that piece is going - looking forward to seeing how it shapes up.

    Glad you are enjoying painter so much.
    Post #34. I'd say go for cool colors on the lips/eyes/ears instead or why not play around with color adjustment in ps, see what works?

    Alizak: thank you!

    CarbonBased: thanks, I'll give that a go this weekend when I work on it again .

    Had a really hectic week last week so didn't have much time/energy in the evenings, hence no posts .

    Going back to landscape studies as this is something I really need to practice. This is from a reference. I'm feeling progression (even if it is slow), and actually starting to enjoy them !

    Some stuff from this weekend. Continued work on the piece I started last weekend. Not very happy with how it's going, but at least I'm learning from it...

    The other two are for a game I'm sort of designing.
