    BludHund - Thanks for the notice. It's not like I can't draw dynamic perspective. Some of these images where "lazy" on purpose. It's liberating when I can do some structures as simple 2d elevation view. This way I can play with the shapes and patterns without worrying about other things. However later I had the temptation to turn few into illustration and experiment didn't end up looking well. I should've left some without any type of background.
    On the other hand it was educational to first paint some structure and then come up with context and story that would compliment the design. That's something I might use for brainstorming more elaborate concepts with full attention to perspective and composition.

    Below is more appropriate layout for this type of design .

    I'm going back to foundations and traditional mediums. I use tablet at work and do lots of graphic design and cartoony work so doodling in sketchbook is refreshing.

    Pencil sketch of a female statuette I bought latelty to practice drawing form.

    Few things I did recently.

    Personal illustration for the "Clockwork ballroom" collaborative art activity. The topic was "Alter Ego" and my description for the image below:

    “I imagined my alter ego to be android who ended up being a bit like Robinson Crusoe. He woke up incomplete and now tries to find some parts to build himself up. Unfortunately there was massive flood so he has to be resourceful and take what’s available around."

    Bunch of gun designs - More modern near future on the left and more exotic ones on the right. Could be some sort of blasters.

    I often have problem when drawing hair especially for female so I decided to do something about it. It was hard to find photo reference with many angles. Especially top view is crucial to see how the hair is parting and which direction it follows.

    I'm planning to start a personal library of everything related to characters for reference so that studies could be more specific and later used (instead of being dumped somewhere). Different face types, hairstyles, useful poses, etc.

    Here's another collection of hairstyles.

    I haven't done zombies before and it looks like they are pure fun. Took about 2 hours.

    Hey man,
    I really appreciate you taking the time to support me, thanks!

    The last bunch of characters, I think the value ranges are too close together.
    It would be appropriate if they were in gloomy lighting, but in terms of just displaying a character, I think the contrast of values and differing value range of surfaces could be punched up, not sure if that makes sense.
    For example, the zombie's jacket could be matte dark, utilizing 100%-80% black. Then the shirt could be a lighter color, using 70%-20% black, etc.

    Just my 2 cents.

    HunterKiller_ - Thanks. Yeah. That's what happens when you post the same day you finish artwork. Always some major things missed. Luckily you can quickly change things in Photoshop with overlays and sliders.

    Changed the values a bit more.

    Playing with some sci-fi vehicles for fun. In second one I used Alchemy for base shapes and painted on top. It always gives interesting results.

    The little plane is pretty rad, looks like the pilot would stand on it, like Nausicaa on her aerofoil.

    I really like that vehicle on treads! It's kind of clunky and charming.

    HunterKiller_ - Thanks, man

    I seriously started to consider doing storyboards (while previously I totally disregarded that specialty). There are many images which I made as illustrations but forced totally cinematic framing, feeling of space and poses. The problems is that cinematic composition doesn't exactly work well for single illustration but is more natural in sequence. I should've realised earlier that somewhere subconsciously many of these images I wanted to actually paint as storyboards. Guided by some impulse last year I also bought two books and el coro's tutorial on storyboarding so I guess my intuition gave me quicker answer than reason . That might be some new fresh stage in my artistic development.

    For now though I'm more in the mood to do concept art so here's old revised robot design.
