    I like the three-dimensional-ness of the eyes and lips in that first one. Lovely lighting.

    Welcome to CA!
    You already have a lot of basic stuff down and I really like how clean and sophisticated your rendering is.
    The poses are a little stiff and the colors lack depth but overall you're off to a good start
    Keep up the good work!

    @Xelar

    Thanks for mentioning that, I had my colour depth in mind when continuing this piece. I think for poses I'll have to study more.

    Wow great start to your SB! Loving the clean bold colours. That worms head doesn't quite look at the right angle for that tea pot to stand on though. But I'm just being picky

    You're an amazing artist, Melon, I look up to you a lot, keep it up.

    I think we already told you the hands look weird on that last one. Especially the second from left to right, that wrist is too fat. But it's a fine piece with good potential.

    @Molina: Thanks for the kind words! Yeah you told be about the arms and hands on irc a while ago, I'm working on fixing it. I want to add more detail as well.

    This started off as one figure but, quickly became 2 then 3 then 4. Making this one up as I go along.

    This looks really damn impressive, your command of form combined with colour means that your pieces really jump out. It's a nice contrast to drab brown and grey, let me tell you! I reckon that that skill would be even more powerfully employed in working with environments and landscapes. Take a look at Glen Vilppu's series on landscape drawing if you can get your hands on it - lots of nice information on thumbnails and composition of pieces.

    Also, for that (self ?) portrait of that gal with the tablet, watch the fingers on the hand with the pen - looks a little distorted, but I still like her face and how much it jumps out at me.

    Good luck!

    xArtKingx, Immortal Cintiq - Thanks!

    Duplicitious - Thanks, most of my progress shots a pretty bad though, the process of painting for me is still constantly correcting mistakes I'm making. Trying to work on making less of them in the first place.

    ATP - I haven't really paid too much attention to landscapes, Theres still so much I need to learn about human expression and anatomy! Thanks for the crits as well, its not a self portrait though, the idea came about from old food and beer packaging.
