Nice start man! i like it so far, play a bit more with your brushes, i really really liked the halo one, but next time don't use the color picker, work on your colors... but overall you got some good stuff going on in here, keep it up

hey great start! you've got great control over edges and it seems that you do understand metal but the first couple (not the halo type guy) but the others seem to have weaker rendered metal, not sure if you got lazy?
great job with the male torso! looks like a 3D render, I would suggest doing more studies from videos/other actiony type things because unless you're able to render muscles in actions or are memorizing muscles as you do these, this isn't gonna help you a lot with placing characters in poses
keep it up!
hey kaye, i really dont have any understanding of how light would look on metal yet but thats something i need to study ill definitely do more studies of muscles in action
just posting some wips
3 hours and 10 minutes
great start off man,check out an artist called sam carr here on this website he started of at ure age now here is a pro at 18

heey its my birthday today, just turned 17.

Hey Ben! I am thoroughly impressed by this book! For being 16 you are going to be the future in the industry for sure man. so much potential.
Okay, you can draw and render like the best of 'em, but if i may give one piece of advice: please lay off the soft rounds. Everything looks incredible polished and airbrushed, but also pretty lifeless. Try experimenting with making your stuff with only hard rounds or with textured brushes, and i wouldn't be afraid of putting some colour in there. Nothing to kill a picture like lots of black. So, keep it up, you've got some great stuff in you!
Great start with your sb! Those Ps studies are nice and so are the body sketches. Keep struggling, you've got great potential!
