    Thanks PNate =]

    Two studies. I tried to do a colour one since I feel a little more comfortable after all those B&W studies. I am going to spend the rest of the day doing more colour studies, maybe of simpler things or master studies, we'll see what happens =]

    Hey V3t, good updates, good studies. Keep working hard! I wish I knew more, so I could recommend something in exactly my thoughts, but your grayscales and painting seem blury. I want to say work on your edges, planes, and define the form a little more. I'm not sure what to say, just fucking fix it, cool? I'm kidding. But I like it all, good job!

    Hey! I see you going grayscale to colour, tricky part for me yet still.
    I decided in the end not to try it for now, and start with colour from the start.

    Anyway, do you have the RGB sliders on? I use the HSB (hue saturation brightness) ones, it is much faster to choose the colours.
    And if you don't mind, I took the liberty of analyzing one of your sky drawings. The tones seemed a bit off, and when I made some
    swatches, it occurred to me, some of your dark colours had a low saturation (2nd row). In general, if you have low saturated bright
    tones, your dark tones are saturated. And vice versa. On the 3rd row I picked the same colour, but more saturated.
    Try to keep this in mind when painting. low saturation-high saturation.

    Hope I was of any help, cheers.

    braineater Thank you very much, don't worry, I won't be stopping the studies and updates for a long time =]
    I STRaY I Thanks for the advice, my edges are terrible making the whole image look flat and blurry. I took your advice and tried some edge control studies.
    BlackDelphin That was incredibly helpful to me, thank you so so much


    Two studies I done this morning, I'll try my hand at colour later and post it up if I do not destroy them completely.

    These were pretty much edge control studies, trying to keep them from looking blurry. I messed them up pretty badly but I guess I just have to keep doing more.

    Really promicing stuff here!
    There is definitely improvement. You've got rid of your 'straight to details' paintings from your first posts.
    The things I feel you still have to improve upon is how you show form and light. When painting, think about the forms and volumes and they will show in your images. Same goes for lighting, clearly decide where the light/lights is coming from and stay true to them. Also, you need more brushwork mileage to get a good technique going. Use the 'alt' key to select colors/values when painting and don't stop until you get a smooth value transition where required.

    Hey buddy, don't be hard with yourself, let others do it if necessary . You are already better than day one, you will be better in the years coming. Keep trying, think about how to improve what you see you do wrong. Cheers!

    Great job so far, the improvement since the beginning is noticeable (especially with that one comparison pic.) It's also great you're balancing your imagination paintings with study. keep it up dude :]

    Looks like you changed from the hard to soft brush and are loosing a bit on detail now, try to balance that.
    That doodle on #168 looks interesting.

    Great progress. When doing studies from photos life, be careful about not looking enough at how things actually are - it looks like you're assuming too much sometimes. Also be careful about going too dark. Keep up the good work!

    thanks for stopping by

    http://ctrlpaint.com/library/
    here is a library which you should definitely browse

    focus especially on hard/soft edges, gray scale
    also stop using low opacity brushes, for skin rendering use rather airbrush and masking

    Nice sketchbook. Your values seem abit muddy so I would suggest doing plane studies. Keep up the hard work you are on the right path.

    good to see you are still working hard,those last studies are quite better than what I remember last from you.
    I agree with the dude about ctrl.com,use the brushes and the masking techniques on that site to control you edges.
