    Elisa, why the sad face? You are making progress. Don't forget to be mindful and apply the fundamentals to your art and criticize your work at every step. This is a life long journey, don't be so hard on yourself

    This last water elemental like creation is looking nice, I think that
    you are understanding values better now, however don’t forget to do your
    grey-scale studies, that will help you to improve even more. When you are
    doing environments, my suggestion would be that you firstly work them
    out in thumbnail greyscale version. What looks good in small, will look good
    in a large version, and what looks bad in a small version will surely look bad in a big
    edition. Nice job on those figure drawings above, you should keep up with the good work.

    thank you all ltplisken i already do thumbnails but i think i moved from then to finished to quick and i have to focus even more on my values yes you can see now with my 50 min speedpaints the orc is with quick values and the robot and creature was with more time in values and is much better

    Hey there Elisa, how are things going lately around your house?
    I like your latest post and the variety that you bring into your drawing
    and painting subjects. I was just re-watching those animals mating
    above, and I think that they are done in a very interesting way.
    I am wondering what happened to this explorer, an alien tentacle coming
    out from his stomach?
    You keep up with the great work, and never stop updating.
    Thank you for being so kind and visiting me.

    Hello Elisa
    Something that I regard as the best kind of advice has been touched on by Ltplissken in post #97, I will add on to this idea.
    I think you need to stop concentrating on color for awhile and go to values. Color can never serve alone to solidify structures or add form, it will only serve as icing to a cake. But the values serve as the base underneath the frosting... the artist must take into account values. Currently all of your pieces are flat and if you concentrated on values, the pieces will improve tremendously.

    I suggest to you studying basic geometric shapes, drawing these and trying to imagine them in a 3dimensional space, even though you are drawing on a 2D plane. you must realize this to go further. You are simply drawing on a flat surface trying to manipulate values to appear 3dimensional. While sketching geometric shapes ( basic shapes such as spheres, cubes, cylinders ) try and shade them. Although they are simple surfaces the same rules of light/shade apply to those as to more difficult subjects. and if you can't shade simple objects how will you do that for more complicated ones?

    Go back to the fundamentals as even experienced artists rely on these even in their prime years. It is unavoidable if you wish to improve further. good luck okay!

    I like your style, I would also ask , what are you aiming for? do you have a favorite artist? As I see you don't seem to have a big problem on the movement, but anatomy of the forms you create often seems to drop the viewer out of the composition. So you should check the composition balance and how things on a general view work (like rhythm and flow) and maybe try and apply them next time. Also on your landscapes you should study a bit about atmospheric perspective cause they seem to lack the application of different values between layers (foreground/middleground/background). Keep up the good work and keep on practicing

    @newtone:my aim would be magic the gathering style of work. living of art would be nice to start. i only learned the basics of composition ( rule of thirds, triangle comp, diagonals etc) have not studied it much yet i see how pro's do it but can't figure out how to put it in my own things.

    did almost nothing the whole easter break
    the dogs where for a competition job (only picked got paid 30 dollars)did't get picked :/

    hey, your stuff looks rough and it seems like you are rushing through, try to slow down and take the time to do studies so you can get the forms down.

I also did mostly speed-paintings this year and not even that much .... and all of my finished personal illustrations are quite simple up till now but here is a change for my end test in digital painting for this year in evening school ( still working on it) plus some doodles in between exams

    Things are looking much sharper since last I was here,
    you got better that’s for sure. So many fantasy paintings,
    you are definitely good at your imaginary side, a creative
    individual is what you are. Keep up with the good high
    spirit, I hardly can wait to see some
    more great things from you.

    Your robo-dog painting is pretty cool! I agree, you have been making some good progress. I hope you don't mind, but here is a quick paint over addressing some values in that painting. I hope it makes sense to you. Nice work! Keep it up.
