    That landscape study is great!
    The lady from post#34 is looking very evil now. I might be biased, for a good reason ha ha, but I like how it turned out with blue around her eyes and on her ears.
    I rather like the drawing of her. See how far you can push it. : )

    You have some interesting characters designs in here. You're really good at drawing the silhouettes.
    The piece you're currently working on is coming along nicely, I like the color scheme. Keep it up!

    Yes...as others have said...you are creating some interesting characters. This one caught my eye.

    I've never worked anything up from a silhouette...but I like what you're doing! Another thing I'll have to try sometime!

    Keep 'em coming!

    CarbonBased: Thanks . I think the blue works much better - thank you for the advice! I wasn't going to carry on with it but I'll give it another go now.

    Rustveld: Thank you!

    Jephy X: Thanks! I started doing it to try and push my designs so they look more interesting. I just need to continue the process now and get a finished character from it .

    Was feeling a bit down about my last post but the comments have really made me feel better and encouraged me to keep going . I've been ill today and yesterday, but as I can get out of bed today I managed to get this done. Just from imagination - didn't really have anything in mind. Rather embarrassed I worked on it for 2 hours - it looks like so much less than that!

    Thanks for your nice comment!
    Whooah, I think I like everything I've seen here so far! Really good-looking and creative concepts, and I really really like your shading.
    The art you have as your avatar, that's my favourite. I love this mixture of colours/light on her face.
    Waiting for more, I will be definitely coming back - to admire and to learn!

    That last sketch is really nice.
    It's not as rough and unfinished as most others.
    The slight tint of blue/green in the darks makes it even better.
    Really nice job there.
    Your Landscapes look promising too...actually I like them better then you humanoids. some foreground or crisp details might help improve the environments.
    Keep it up.

    More silhouettes - going to develop one of these into a finished piece (I'm determined!). Not sure which one though...

    Figure concepts and silhouettes are looking good.
    But take care of your anatomy.
    It's kind of easy to hide anatomy issues with clothing, flames or blurrish paint.

    Keep practicing all these fundamental knowledge until your hand hurts

    Those are some nice silhouettes you've got there. Numbers 1 and 3 look like they could
    be from a fight scene. The second silhouette is nice too, the only thing that
    I want to point out is that it looks as though she is staring off at the
    distance. I think it would be nice if you made her staring at the viewer, but
    that could just be my own personal preference.

    Your rendering has improved a lot since the first page. You're on a roll! I just
    love that image you posted on feb 22nd. Also I am really liking how this image
    is coming along. Don't get discouraged! I think you've got a nice character
    design there and I can't wait to see the end result. (that is, if you do decide to finish it)

    All in all a very nice sketchbook. Keep working on that mileage.

    Silwynar: Thank you for the comment! Yeah, I am a bit guilty of that . Practice, practice, practice!

    Elisele: Thanks for stopping by ! That's a really good point - if I put more detail into that one I will make her look at the viewer. I'm really not sure about that other piece though, hehe! Thanks again!!

    Sleepingrabbit: Thank you very much !

    More work on the fiery spirit character. Trying to explore a few costume ideas (my original idea was to design a fire character for a game like Soul Calibur). I think I like 4 and 5 so going to continue with those for colours/more detail then choose one from there.

    Love your silhouettes! They are sooo cool already Now you should focus on making even cooler paintings out of them.
    I can see great improvement on the environments. Nice job!

    I chose to work on number 5 from the sketches in the last post. I've worked out the colour scheme separately, but it's very messy so I'm not posting it here :p. Instead, here's a close-up of the face so far. Spent about 2 hours on it this evening, and I used a reference to help.

    She's meant to be fiery, so I'm not going for realistic skin colours! And I've only just started on the hair .
