Uwaaaaaaahhhhhh Long time no post :/
I'm back! I had a crazy summer, didn't draw much unfortunately.
Since then I've managed to create a small portfolio, finishing a bunch of old stuff making some new stuff!
I just turned 18, and I'm going to try getting some freelance work for the first time ever in the next couple of weeks.
any critiques or advice is greatly appreciated so I can study away those weaknesses and apply it in the future!
Here are some links to my stuff (＠⌒ー⌒＠)ノ"

Hey, good to see you back!
Those paintings are really nice! My only problem with them is that they look a bit too sterile, a little overpolished in a way, things look a bit flat and lifeless when you render them out this much. Would love to see more definition of form as Andrew said. I think adding some more texture and grit, and basically looking more at material properties would help these, and leaving some stuff looser would help too, as the focal points grab more attention then. This piece, by Maciej Kuciara shows what I mean. He lets the important parts get more of a surface treatment and a sharper rendering to really point out what the piece is about, even if it is a bit exaggerated. Everything else is really just a blur, but you still know what is happening.
Anyways, hope this helps a little, most of it certainly applies to my own stuff as well. Good luck getting client work, I've been thinking about trying to get some myself!

Your sb is great, really inspiring!
I agree with PieMonster and Andrew on the painting. Close up areas look great like the monsters face and muscles, but as a whole the values don't feel like they're working at the moment. I think higher contrast would help, but also bigger chunks of shadow/light to simplify some of the forms a little bit. I love the composition of this one and reckon it could be an awesome portfolio piece!!

@ Piemonster : Thanks! Yeah I agree, I feel like I'm colouring in the lines sometimes. Gotta free paint more often!
@ Jacky-Boy : Thank you! I'll make sure to study value patterns and composition!
Here's a new thing!
I'm going to be at the massive black workshop this weekend and I'd love to meet anyone and everyone who might be there!

The massive black workshop was amazing! I learned soooo much.
I'm working on learning to draw properly, but I'm going to do another painting to break up my studies a little.
Shoutout to everyone I met at the workshop! it was awesome to see you guys :3
