    Guys, thanks a lot for your feedback, i'll try my best to improve. But i really did not get the point on the values you guys mentioned, maybe you could give some examples?? it would be nice, lol. But anyways, i'll continue to do the studies and work hard enough to achieve the best result.

    I'm doing some Loomis studies but as i mentioned before, i was planning to get back to the challenges, and here i have my first entry in a CHOW match. I spent about 7 hours on this guy, a record for me, lol. The result is still lacking something... but i really can't figure it out =/.

    thanks for stopping by man. I really can't say i'm ahead of you, cause you're certainly doing well for yourself. At our stage I think theres nothing more important than perseverance and believing in yourself. Keep drawing and do it daily, make sure you have a list set out for what you need to study the next day and just tick em off as you go.

    Here is a quick doodle i did based on the current IOW match (Where the giants Roam). It took about 20 minutes.

    And here is an environment study based on the current EOW Match (yeah, i forgot the title, something about a natural bath place for birds). This took about 3h to reach that level. Well, actually i'll consider this my wip for that match, hope to finish it in time.

    Hey guys! Here are some more Loomis studies and my first WIP for the current CHOW match (The monarch of duality). Now i'm really seeing the rersults of studying Loomis, i really could not even sketch a woman, now i'm getting the feel for it, it will be a really tough challenge to do a WIP with women involved. Anyways, we're here to get better, so no big deal about the subject.

    Finished FDFAIW. It's a really good book but i think i got kinda lost in the process because Loomis has an approach that deals with those lines of action and stuff like that that i really can't use properly in my work. Maybe some more practice will help. anyways, i will start to post the Bridgeman's constuctive anatomy, it seems that i will end up linking this book more than FDFAIW, lol.

    Note: The last one is a sketch i did really quickly to see where i'm going with characters in general.

    You are really good at drawing with graphite.

    Your digipaints would benefit from using a bigger brush to block things in, and then move towards the smaller one for the detail work if this is to be. The forms will pop up more this way, as they currently do in your pencil drawings!

    @ Aragah - Vlw joe! e a história é a mesma de sempre cara, procurando o que falta no portfolio e caindo em cima...lol.

    @ Lakka - Thanks for the feedback dude! And yeah, i really really have to improve my "blocking shapes" skill with bigger brushes, doi more value studies to help this issue...

    So, a few more pencil sketches done in about 1h each, and more progress on the character painting.

    I think, your digital paintings feel to much "drawn". So many fuzzy little brushstrokes. Sometimes they work, but in many cases I think they are to much. My advice would be to work with big brushstrokes, being resourceful and thinking about the planes and their values. Just because they went missing sometimes because of to many strokes. Your paintings aren't bad - but more organisation and a mixture between highly detailed parts and very rough simple parts would give them more contrast and makes them easier to view.
    Keep it up! =)

    Hey guys, back to study again. But now the whole thing is getting more fun with some friends on google hangout, really nice tool to study with group.

    So, here are some more bridgeman stuff, 5 thumbnails from movies and some sketch paintings of mine. And yeah, the lens flare stuff was just for fun, i don't really intend to use it in future works... but who knows eh?

    Not really happy with the result but these two guys really helped in some issues, specially as a composition and color study.

    Hope to finish more stuff soon.

    Nice concept pieces in the last post! I like them a lot. Maybe in the second one you could have used air perspective more to show depth. It's irritating for me, that the smaller parts on the sides of the temple have an other saturation than the part in the middle. I understand that the light should cause this effect, but it doesn't feel right for me. Try to create contrasts between foreground and background. You can use light for that, as well as saturation, details, sharpness... There are many ways. I think, I would make the foreground darker but with more saturated colours and do the background much lighter. But in the end it depends on the effect you want. So, use the possibilities of Photoshop and run wild!

    Thanks always Valyavande, you always give some nice feedback, i'm really trying my best with stuffs here. Thank you again.

    So, back to updates here. These are some sketch paintings i did a while ago, i must admit that i really did not liked any of those pieces, specially because i was trying to do something without any reference, just to see what i was ready to do... shame on me, lol. But i though it would be ok to post it anyway, so i could share every thought i've been facing these days on my practice.
