hey, this sketchbook is off to a great start... your digitals are looking great! I think that your pencils are your weak point at the moment... it could really help you to go back to that, focus on structure and anatomy for a while, it'll transfer over to better understanding in your digital paintings too. And don't forget to keep applying studies to your work from imagination! You got a lot of potential here, just keep pushing
Keep doing FDFAIW. Gotta finish this book before anything else. Also, some quick sketches i did for the current CHOW match, but i'm not planning to take part on this one because of the book. Hope to get it done right to start doing those challenges again, it is awesome.
So, i'm scaning more studies from Loomis, meanwhile here goes another character study, i'm really having a hard time adding color to a grayscale piece, but that is kinda the process i want to master, because doing direct on color is insane for me, at least for characters, i mean.
Hey man, nice work! For going to greyscale to colour what I've found is, adding the colour after the rendering is done really kinda screws you over, because you have no chane to paint over it and adjust the colour as you go. If you add the colour after you have some basic values mapped in, it should go a lot smoother as well as feeling a lot more natural. Good luck.
