I've been reading a lot of threads on this site, and though I've painted a lot before I tend to stick to human characters without branching out a lot. I've been doing life drawing for... I think about three years now? just a bit of background.
This is my first time thumbnailing a painting before going into it (I'm guilty of jumping into stuff with no prior planning) so I'm very open to pointers! I feel like I have no idea what I'm doing ahahah
anyway here are the first three thumbnails. If you want references of the mecha I'm trying to paint, here are some pics. The pink areas are meant to be where the light from the eye would fall, but I could do with some advice there as I think those are pretty off hahaha
