Thanks Kimonas! Yeah, I've been trying a few new things, I think I am starting to understand character design a bit more, I'm finding it a lot of fun
Here's some more sketches
All I can see here is hard work, dedication and love for art. That's pretty much enough, isn't it? Keep them coming!
@lifelove - aww, thanks bro. Hit me right in the feels. I do love art, I'm so glad that shows through!
@tubz - Thanks!
For some reason that other sketch didn't show through. here it is. Should have more soon. I'm really going on hard on the character drawings, I feel like I'm slowly getting somewhere. I know it's just basics but I feel like I need to get that right first.
i love your style man! and especially your sketches! i think they look very painterly and they have great energy in them, which is something i love! Keep it up!!
izzyart - Straight to the heart bro! Thanks so much! Let's get better together
Well here is a couple of things. For the past week I have had in my head to draw a Spaniel as a knight, don't ask me why, I had a vision. Hahaha. I don't know if this is exactly what I had in my head but it was fun to work on. The other sketch is just a practice one trying something similar to zhang weber, guy is a beast. Edit - just noticed some of my posts went missing from above, will add them in here.

Another Spaniel knight, think I will do some armor studies to really push things further, want to try the Kekai Kotaki style
Hey guys, just an update here. Lots of bit and pieces. I did this frozen piece for charity, went for auction and sold an impressive amount of money! Really amazed. Did some Kim hyoung hwan study, dude is amazing, then I tried my own. I wanted to paint a beautiful caterpie in a brushy style, didn't quite happen, haha. Anyway, I'd like to post more regularly, I miss this place.
Here's a Carolyn Anderson study I did recently, frustrated the life out of me. I just found her this week and she creates these beautiful brushy paintings but I just couldn't get anywhere near that. Maybe it's just the fact that she is an incredible painter and I'm still in early days, but was just bugging me. If anyone has any advice please let me know. Here is a link to the image
I also did some super quick gestures studies, today was bumskee style
Hey buddy! I think what your master study is actually quite good! I think there are just some subtle things you might want to turn your attention to. It will help if you put both images side by side and use the colour picker to compare There were two things that stood out initially - the values you are using on the skin are firstly too light a tone and they are too warm compared to the rest of the skin. You've also picked tones that are too bright on the shirt also. That's why its best not to start on a white canvas - things in real life are rarely that bright. Very bright tones should be reserved for specular highlights in general (like on metal, even skin speculars are rarely almost white). White shits etc are usually a grey tone. (I actually recently messed this up on my recent Frieza painting) Also have a look, but the colours on her skirt are too saturated and pull the eye too much in your version. On the origional the most saturated reds are reserved for her lips and flower on the right shoulder. The other thing that sprang to mind was your edges. In the original there are almost no hard edges. The hardest edges in the original seem to be on her left upper lip and left upper eyebrow.
Hope this helps. Maybe try another one, and try to focus on getting the tones right, its mega important.
All the best buddy! Some killer stuff recently.
Thanks for those tips Kimonas! I realise I was way off and just need to practice more. But about that thing, practicing. Been slacking a bit, haven't been feeling well and then went out and bought Disgaea for the Ps4. Woops...
But here is a bunch of drawings from the last month. These most recent ones were wes burt ink studies (he is a genius) and with some of my own, and then pretty much just Bridgman. Every day, on the bus, whenever I can, even if just a little.
It's hard, this thing we do, to motivate ourselves to draw every day. But you can't deny it feels good when you put the effort in. Keep it up doods!
Haven't been on here in a while - love to see all your portrait work. You manage to make painting a woman's face different and interesting every time. K

Oh and if you want to watch me paint live I recently got introduced to this thing called picarto TV... It's nice to do art and share it - if you have any questions it's great to talk too! I'm painting pretty much 12 hours a day so you'll most likely find me - unless I'm eating
