    Here's a little study and something that I've been working on for a friend. Took me ages to finish. It's based upon the Halo: Reach cover.

    Getting along well. Rendering slowly and trying to not disrupt the atmosphere. Thinking about changing the arm holding the dagger to feel more natural and dynamic, because it doesn't feel that way now. Trying to not get stuck on details!

    Looking good - you are not afraid of colour which is great. My only comment is to perhaps try and pull your paintings in tighter - they are a little fuzzy around the edges - but I suspect that will come with practice.

    AllyAlbon Thanks! In truth, I feel that I am really struggling with colors. Yes, I suspect the same. But of course it helps to be aware of the problem!

    So here's a really fuzzy environment warm-up sketch!

    hey really nice sb! there's a lot of progress in the pages already! My only critique for you is to try and avoid using so many blacks or near-black colours for shadows in your paintings as I think you might be relying on these too much when its not always necessary to have such dark shadows in some places. Maybe try some b&w studies to practice eyeballing values? Keep posting!

    anivy Heya and thank you! Yes I have to agree on that critique, it's something that I resort to quite often. I might be overexaggerating the shadows, so I'll be sure to practice more values then. Thanks a lot!

    So here's todays valuestudy. Tried really hard not going into the near-black territory!

    I see a lot of drawing every day in here, great job! Keep going, keep posting!
    Your art has a lot of dynamic poses and energy overall, i'd suggest working on atmosphere
    and overall mood a bit more. And a bit more concentration on colour scheme, all that
    black i see in some of your drawings are a enthusiasm breaker, it makes the mood break somehow.
    Try using a very dark blue, green, etc instead of almost pure black.

    BlackDelphin Hell yeah, gotta keep it up! Can't loose the flow .
    Thanks a lot for the input. I'm sometimes too sporadic with color, but I would probably benefit a lot by keeping it more planned and sustained. I guess I feel that I don't control it very well at this stage. Aah, that darkness is haunting me now! Next sketches won't have much darkness in them then!

    Another value-study without dipping into the darkness.

    So I began working on an illustration based upon my own IP. It's looking a bit dark at the moment, but I'm going to try and balance it out. At least I started good this time around.

    Hey really like the post apocalyptic stuff (motorcycle psycho is cool, always wanted to do something similar), very Mad Max. The punk girl three up is very nice as well.... So I'll just reiterate the idea of working on conscious edge control. It is something I have to work on all the time too, but can really be a powerful compositional tool. Lost and soft edges have their uses as well, but typically only really work when there is a strong focal point with sharp forms and definition, then those soft edges can help keep the viewers eyes from settling on less important elements of the image. As with so many other facets of art, it is a fine balance. For example, this last portrait could really represent more clear depth if you gave him some hard highlights and separated the values a little bit. He is overall very soft and airbrushy but with a few hard edges where he is catching the most light could bring him forward and out of the background.

    Anyway, i'm not an expert, but these are some things i've learned and think could help you to keep in mind. Regardless, keep at it, you've got some very imaginative ideas and that is half the battle.
