    Hey Dutchie Good studies you got going on here! Mind if I ask where you got the ear plaster? Seeing as you're from the Benelux as well and I've been looking for one but failed to find one so far...

    -D_art- , Cranberry Thanks for the feedback.

    I tried applying my armor studies to this sketch from imagination.
    !t doesn't look like one coherent design because i somehow decided to isolate each little area.. learned alot though.

    Good stuff! The legs are a little bit confusing I think, it's hard to make out what's going on and how she is standing. Maybe try to enlarge the canvas and draw the complete pose (and crop it afterwards) to get a better feeling for the pose? Just thinking out loud!

    Cranberry, I agree the image is off. i didn't plan the image at all.

    I'm forcing myself to make it a habit to work from imagination more often.
    Some sketches and a portrait that looks a bit stylised.

    Hi Martijn,
    Great start for a great sketchbook! your posts are so loaded with pictures!
    You must be working all day to get this amount of work done, and its already showing. From your first post to your last one you already seem to be getting better!
    And usually it takes pages of a sketchbook to see that kind of progress

    I've got one critique for you right now. Might be able to come up with more later.
    When I see you using dark colours in your painting. I see you quickly jumping towards black without any colour in it. This way the painting gets flattened.
    When looking at artist wich are great with light/dark you seem them using much more different colours in their dark areas.
    Look at this painting made by Rembrandt for example.
    http://1.bp.blogspot.com/--TiHvKUout...brandt%2B3.jpg
    He is using magneta purple in his dark areas wich already gives the painting a lot more depth.
    Just something I want you to think of next time you are grabbing black on your colour pallete for your shades

    Keep it up!

    Luckers: Thanks for pointing that out, will make a big difference!

    i'm aware that you shouldn't use pure white or black and usually go for some sort of color in the higlights and darkest darks,
    perhaps changing rbg web to rgb monitor to prevent darkening images when posted on the web might help aswell.

    Wow, those last portraits are awesome, you nailed the textures and stuff. Look really clear. Especially the eyes .

    Oh, and those hand and feet studies further up. . Awesome work!
    Sorry I haven't really got a crit for you. Don't know enough myself for that .
    Keep it up though
