Really fantastic studies and work in here ~ and from what I can see those tone studies are reeeeeally paying off!
This is an inspiring skb you have here, looking forward to more updates!
I'll be here with the Daggers for the rest of my art journey.
Keep pushing people, let us be great together-!
I really like the last environments you done. Very nice. As for your self portrait, I'd recommend pushing the saturation =]
I'm a peacock, you gotta let me fly!
Thanks for the last nice and warm comments @smrrfette and @kevin_ and the helpful advice there @V3T, can't yet get the right palettes when working from life, still I'm putting my efforts there until I get it right.
Focusing over doing still-life everyday until I get them better, think painting from life is more challenging and teaches better than from photos, also I feel more comfortable when working from life than from photos, weird sensation, but it's more enjoyable. But it's harder to get the color relationships right, though I'll keep on trying.
I took a couple days break and haven't done much these past days. I've spent them mainly reading, but it seems it has renewed my energies a little bit.

@Spudonkey Thank you! Yeah, you are right! Her right humerus is too long, I'm still carrying proportion troubles XD, must focus more.
I've spent days battling with linux, and couldn't paint at all! But strangely it seems I've improved passively, before that I couldn't paint from imagination, now I'm able to sometimes do things that al least they read and without reference! Still most of my troubles are about lack of design and expression so I must start to use reference more oftenly to aid me with that!. Here are a bunch of imagination sketches from the past few days and one from today, and an unfinised still life. Most new stuff has been done in Krita.
HOLYYY MOTHER OF WACOM!!(?)... dude you're fucking smashing it seriously man- you're one to watch, loving the still life's and the fact you're experimenting in your personal stuff esp. digging the chick with the feather helmet, I keep scrolling to look at her again this is a good sign! hey you say you wanna work on expresiveness, i JUST stumbled uppon this http://iainmccaig.blogspot.com/, first post is about facial expressions, what a luck as for crit man, I'd say maybe try adding some texture to your pieces, atm I'm left wanting more detail/texture, are you trying different brushes? and for design stuff I would recommend loomis' "creative illustration"- found it extremely insightful and Buy James Gurney's "Light and colour" if you haven't already. Don't ask, just buy it
Can't wait to see more stuff man, keep it coming
