    Vlad74 - It's still not as expressive as I want it to be but I'll get there
    Erikly - Thanks, I have to post more often!

    10 min sketches, firearms (because my brain was telling me I couldn't paint them and I decided to prove him wrong) and another sketch-experiment.

    Cool style! You have good skill but need more practice and attention to details.

    Holy cow! Everything here has so much energy and life! It's amazing!

    I think should be focusing on getting experience with rendering things more detailed and better polished, because you already have a lot of energy and visual communication with your use of colour and gesture. Subscribing because it's really inspirational. Keep up the good work!

    I really admire your work. Your colors are bright and saturated and figure lose and dynamic.

    Hi, great work, just wanted to leave my thoughts on last piece since you requested it, unless you want to apply for dc comics, i don't think have a fan art piece of wonder woman is so great idea, it would be more interesting for people looking at your portfolio to see your own designs rather then someone else, again just my thoughts, keep up the good work!

    Great studies. Really digging your confident brush strokes and use of color. Definitely would like to see more finished pieces from you. Keep posting.

    Hey alekina, those two last post are fucking good, lot of variety and a very loose style that suits you well (like the sketches under the butt..)
    Also like your colors scheme. I'm curious to see what you could do in more narrative pictures with a scene etc.. rather than graphic composition as you do at the moment. Anyway nice inspiration, keep on sharing!

    tsk i have 0 consistency or motivation to render anything, most of the times i don't go further than a sketch. I think the problem is that i become incredibly bored of if i have to carry on with the same piece for more than a day. The solution to this would be to become faster, but how?

    Your use of color is so confident and utterly awesome, and your brushwork is straight up gorgeous. And holy crap, that pulling-the-tooth-out thing is freaking me out. My favorites are posts #10 (that one is friggin beautiful), #29, and that rifle thing in #32. Your brush strokes are the boldest and most confident, and the colors purest in those.
    Seriously good work. Kudos.

    Dahlia - ah thank you, I like the rendering technique in those posts too, but is very time consuming. I'm experimenting with other ways to be faster

    Composition, Light and simple forms practice. All from imagination to test my visual memory and speed(the face is a photo study/colorexperiment tho)
    also tried different ways of arranging colors together cause i always do the same colours

    Those gun paintings look amazing. Yeah, I'm going to start painting with colors now digitally. I have no excuse anymore. It's great to see another artist growing from their techniques and will to experiment further than what their brain tells them so. Thanks for the motivationQ!

    Kill it it's moving! D:

    I'm having a lot of fun with Sculptris, I thought I could never do 3D things cause I'm retarded when it comes to this stuff but they are turning out better than I expected. Also composition sketches unfortunately I don't have a scanner to show the ones on paper but they where really tiny and abstract anyway.

    There's great energy and power in your lines. In #51 there was a figure painting that you'd half finished; I'd love to see more of that. Your way with colour makes me green with envy
