Eon: Thanks man! The painterly thing is fairly recent though.. haha.. only got that in there after discovering ArtRage
Sorknes: Thank you! Appreciate the crit! I need to get into more studies.
Chris Noeth: Yep! You're absolutely right! I'll try to think quality instead of quantity.. I need to make a jump up with my work. Thanks for the kick!
Josef K: Thanks dude! Where have you gone on twitter though? I haven't seen an "Artist inspiration" link in ages
maxetormer: Glad you like, hermano! Hope you're settling in nicely up in Canada! I really need to get on MSN and harrass you.. haven't talked to you in ages.. haven't talked to any CA'ers lately.. I suck.. being busy is not a valid excuse.. hah..
Augmenton: Thank you!
Spect: yooooo! Sorry for being away for so long! Been painting Can't show a lot of it, but I've got an image dump fo' yo' ass right here!
Mischeviouslittleelf: Thanks for the asskickin'! I'm well aware.. heh.. studies comin' up!
hp: Yeah.. updates have been.. neglected for a while.. Been busy (lame excuse)..here's an update to make up for it!
Ok, ya'll.. I'm really sorry for being so negligent of my SB, and CA in general.. I'm gonna make my rounds to all of you as soon as I've posted some pictures! Keep kickin' my ass about updating though!
Right.. this is a mix of a couple of pieces that'll be used (the profiles with the feathers and such, and the red dressed chick), sketches made for my own or for projects and for studies Some I'm happy with, some are crap, but I'll just post a bunch for you guys.. heh.. Hope there's something worth looking at! Appreciate any and all crits and comments!
awesome. your sketching is getting a billion times better.
the red chick piece is awesome. however her face is just killing it. showing that much of her face is not only taking away from some of the mystery factor but it looks like she is leaning backward in a very uncomfy position. i would tilt it down some.
The last one started out as an experiment.. might revisit that one.. or do other/more ninja/robot action.. Don't know.. hehe.. I wanna be real careful with making promises until I really get into being an active part of CA again
dude the last one is indeed epic....i would fix the right side tho, it's totally throwing off some of the persp and some of the mood as well. (the spotlights and the diagonal rail coming down from right to left)
wanna join my sketchring thing? lol i'm trying to gather some new people because almost everyone doesn't post anymore except farvus/onir.
haha btw i don't really use the ca friend thing that much ^^ just to let you know.
Note: I have no clue what I was doing with this mech.. haha.. I feel that I'm really lacking in the design language of mechs and shit.. need to do more I guess.. hehe.. If anyone have any hints and tips and such for this type of thing, hit me!
Those updates are rocking! I can't decide if I like the paintings or drawings the best! Very varied but remains competent! Only crit I can give is that the brown pool border in that Red Dress painting looks too much like a solid color shape. Perhaps it could use further light reflections and shadows (from the branches). Anyway, pic is already quite tough with the drapery and water. Wicked newborn concepts!

Mischeviouslittleelf: Still goin'! Yeah, I totally need that.. I'm gonna try and attend the streaming class on color and light!
kidult: Thanks man! Glad you like
mr. Spect: Thanks for droppin' in so often! YOU RRROOOOCKKK! Hope Newborn will turn out aight.. haha..
hp: Thank you! Yeah, the contrast could really use a bump.. thanks for the crit!
Sorknes: Thanks for the thoughts! Seems like the contrast thing along with my.. flimsy grip on color is a big issue (that is to say, I know it is.. ) will work harder on improving!
Eon: mmm you're totally right.. If that thing took some shadows from the surroundings I think it'd definately be an improvement.. I've already gotten some good crits from hp on it, so I'm reworking it anyhow.. I'll keep it in mind!
Just a few quick quickies.. birds for a thing we're doing at work
Gonna do some workups of a couple of these.. I'll show when I can!
