    Hey man, came here from your posts in the Teen Challenge thread, your sketches there are looking good, great ideas. Your gesture and anatomy work is improving fast, especially the arms and hands, and your construction work on faces and such is much better too. I agree with what some of the other guys have said though, it'd be cool to see some finished work, or like taking one of your character sketches and painting them in photoshop, could work out really well. Keep it up.

    Hey thanks a lot for checking out my stuff and for the kind words

    Yes, that's why I'm trying the teen challenge, the pressure and direction helps motivate me to finish a piece. I think my Teen Challenge #171 Wurm entry will be my first finished work ever.

    here's some stuff from today. meh... i wanted only 2 from the TC thread I liked them more than the others.

    "The best way to relax is to work more" -Y.Amano<- also a link to TC thread

    What do you guys think of my thumb nailing

    sporus, I really like your worm!
    for the thums, I like the lower left best; the others are suffering from lack of space!
    same thing for the piece you are finishing. give it more space;
    do you know about the rule of thirds? put your point of interest somewhere around 1/3 of the picture.
    here, I'd say the primary is the head eating the birds. 2nd might me the body disappearing in the clouds. 3rd the air vents on the creature.
    so put all those around 1/3 points. most important; NOT too close to the edge of the picture. so ye, id give the body a bit mor swung, and let it fade into the clouds in the distance, so that part looks far away. then the creature's really big all of the sudden.

    I saw your post on te teen challenge thread and i reslly liked your wurm it was the strongest conceptually out of the rest i think, i was rooting for yours idk if youre still going to finish it or not but i saw that you were having trouble with the clouds blending with the skin? I wouldve suggested to make the clouds a dirtier white instead the conventional white? And darkening the sky a bit to contrast the pinkish white skin

    Have you ever seen roboto-kun's cloud paintings on deviantart? They arent pure white, sorry if im rambling haha thought id be of some help anyways great sketchbook i cant wait to see more

    oh and this my first finished piece.
    after having finished something I can really see how much work I have ahead of me. I'm not as good as I want to be by any means and some Alarming issues came up while working on this challenge. I don't know a lot crucial things about Photoshop and painting.

    Doing the Teen Challenge #171 was an AMAZING LEARNING EXPERIENCE!!!!
    I had a lot of fun, the positive stress really helped me work on my art constructively and being forced to work on a deadline was extremely vital to the process. (for me, ...i'm lazy)

    I checked out your whole book and I think its bitchin man. Some of the ideas and the flow of it are sick. It seems you have a pretty solid grip on fundementals as well man. I see you getting paid to draw someday
    good work!
