    I am enjoying your figure drawings they are very gestural and full of life and movement, you really captured them well in very few strokes, absolutely excellent. And your paintings are very nice too, I also enjoy their loose and gestural quality I wanna see more!

    Wonderful work on that peace in post #9, i really like it a lot.
    Also thank you for posting the steps of at the salon. It gives a good idea of how you draw.

    I'm not sure i totally agree with the concept in that peace though. Even if the gun is pointing towards that man towards the right corner, the details above him are not enough, or around him to guide me back into the picture. It feels like a dead end and it ruins the mood a bit. Perhaps lowering the brightness of that window could help more?
    Just sharing my two cents.

    Cool stuff. I like the saloon piece. The bartender has a great expression on his face. The lighting is really nice, but I don't understand why there's so much purple in there.

    Your color skills still amaze me, love the mood in #43. Specially how it seems to have a warm glow all around.

    I haven't checked this sketchbook in a while but you've exploded dude! The finished illustrations are looking really good. Thanks for putting up the process on the pice up top too, was interesting to see the steps.

    A little silhouette/design exercise. I start the first one with a photo reference, and the rest is just extrapolating and mutating based on the first.

    So glad that the forums are back online! Now let's proceed to catching up the last month...

    Bunch of portraits, all from life except the digital one (aka derpy study).
    Oldest one dates from 2011 I believe.
