    I sense improvement over time, and I see you're doing constructional anatomy studies, but I can't stress enough how essential it is, that you'd do more, every day. Keep at it man!

    I did this piece for my one of my best friends. The back story of it is that in pretty much all rpg games we play together. He will be some quick assassin and I will always be the tank that is the warrior.



    @Seraph Fawkes: Thanks man haha .. Maaan you're right.. I gotta freaking do MORE!

    Oh wow you've improved a lot already, and you have some amazing studies. I would do some more color studies, since your colors sometimes seems a little muddy? And not as lively as they could be? I wanna see more!

    I'm really digging the warrior and assassin piece too. c: Keep it up!

    Hope you all had a nice holiday :]
    I been doing a few studies on hands, because I got a little tired of sucking at drawing them. So I did a lot of studies from Bridgman on Christmas day. I would draw a few of the same hands over and over, but some from just out of my imagination. The last pages are from the day after, when I tried to remember all the things I learned and draw from my imagination. Not so good without reference, but it's a small it's improvement!

    @Whimsnicole: Thanks for the advice! I been trying to work on values at the moment, but it's true I know I need to work on my colors, I been trying to force myself to read the Color and Light book from Gurney

    Great hand studies man, that's the way to do it. I also like the standing up guy in post #32, looks like a mix between Skyrim armour and one of Kekai's designs, very cool. Keep up the hard work.

    Those last sketches of the fighters have good 3D dimensions but your paintings need more depth, they look a bit flat. Just my 2 cents, keep at it.

    @AJM: Thanks for the feedback! That's something I DO have to work at.. I'll be trying to do a value study today and really work at it.


    The same drill for my anatomy studies. Do a few of them and then try to work them out from my head

    really nice work man. I love all seeing those studies you do, very confident lines.

    That last painting is quite good, strong pose, well executed, my only remark would be to use more color reflection. if I were to paint this myself I would make the blue of the pants interact with the colors of the skin and vice versa. It's the fun thing about color and something that usually doesn't hurt when you exaggerate it a wee bit. Love the face though, strong marks, great warm colors but not to bright, if it were done in oils I might be a bit concerned about the browns getting a bit to muddy but as a digital sketch there's nothing to really worry about.

    nice updates since i last check in here! i think you should try and do more studies to level out with the amount of imagination work you do.

    Hi, good work so far. But I think you should study more using colors, mixing colors temperatures. And I miss some pencil shading.

    @Setherial: Thanks a lot for the great feedback and advice with the color! I definitely will be doing that on my next paintings
    @kevin_ : Thanks again for stopping by :], I shall do more studies haha
    @Cojac : Thanks for the feedback! I really got to learn to be better with my colors, and I should probably pick up the pencil over the pen sometimes

    Oh wow! Super great stuff in here! Especially your designs and digital paintings, those really stand out to me. I would definitely say keep going with the gestures though, getcha self all loosened up! Also, you went to the school I'm trying to attend, that's pretty nifty.

    thanks for stopping by my sb =] lookin good, lots of improvement from start till now.

    My biggest critique is just keep working on fundamentals and remembering/practicing them till they're second nature. An efficient way (for me anyways) is just making sure that every mark you put down is intentional: look twice, measure, look again before putting your pencil to paper (applies to life drawings, photostudies, everything). It's harder in the beginning because it makes you feel slow/wasting time, but it'll make you progress faster and gives you more control over your medium in the long run.

    I got a pretty nasty virus from CA about a 6 days ago, so I was a little afraid to come back here. After I heard that Khurrum Maqboo had fixed the problem and the site is virus free. It made me very relieved, because I really like this website and its community.
    So I want continue my sketchbook and just kind of forget about the whole virus incident


    A quick drawing of the "monkey king"


    Car sketches.. I need to work on those ellipses and proportions for sure


    This one was a very tough still life for me, but it was a great learning experience for me
