    It looks like you master quite perfectly color, value and form. 5th attempt with photoshop, that is amazing man! Did you use reference for the taekwondo one and the skull? If your answer is NO, you just became my new hero

    Hi there, nice start to your sketchbook so far. I like the brown bear studies, nice feel to the fur. Perhaps pick the odd bit of detail out with a sharper thinner brush so it doesn't look too 'fuzzy' overall. The close up of the face is my favourite I think. I like his eyes!

    The muscle builder is definitely your best I think here : ) Though I like your paint of the martial artists, it seems really organic and candid.

    Doing 10 main characters from The Big Lebowski for my Art 224 class.

    Quick note, I noticed I need to move the Dude's right eye closer to his nose. I'm trying to work thru these quicker. I think I have roughly 1-1.5 hours on each.

    Right now the jacket for Quintana seems more, leather like to me. would a quick speckle brush give it more the felt texture?

    And, thanks all for the comments.

    *EDIT 23JAN2012*
    3rd Dude down is the final

    trying to get back in to it...

    So I asked my Facebook to give me suggestions of scenes to do, etc. and this is the first complete/near complete scene/item

    "I want to see chebyrashka standing atop a pile of bodies, planting the soviet flag in the top. He's ripped and wearing a tattered military uniform holding an ak47 in his off hand. Cloudy sky, orange from the fires of war."

    And I just realized I never made him tattered & torn... tomorrow

    Forced myself to paint after not doing so for 6-7 months

    Trying to do 1-hour paints, 1 per day, just so I keep fresh, hopefully get better, more efficient, etc.

    One thing that will help is to flatten and simplify. Try not to do a large amount of little strokes to fill in the values. Try to think and be intentional about the values making things up and the shifts between them.

    Darth Mauls looking good. I would just try to once again flatten a bit and sharpen the edges up a bit. Just keep cranking things out though more importantly.

    the wrestler piece is probably your strongest so far. Really impressive. As JFierce already said avoid the multitude of little strokes. Work with broader strokes as oppose to scribbling in the values. Focusing on looking at and identifying the shapes that make up the highlights, midtones, shadows, etc. Keep posting dude
