    Success through the fog of failure.

    Hello guys and gals,

    Not sure if some of you remember me, I've not been around for a long time. I'm in the Army and have been for around 6years, Due to combatant activity I was injured and currently in a recovery unit looking at a discharge, so I've treated my self to a Wacom cintiq as I enjoy painting but not in the messy way haha *OCD* Looking at progressing my current skills.

    I'm back and I've been drawing!, Check them out below and let me know what you think, Crits/Tips/Tricks/Paint Overs are always welcome!!

    Thank you.

    Josh.

    I think both of these show considerable skill. I'd look into softening the edges of the first one (purple hair). The hair looks pasted on to the head. I like the colors in the second one better.

    Keep doing what you're doing and when possible, draw from life, take a life class, and so forth. If that's not feasible at this time, do a lot of studies from books like Andrew Loomis (Figure Drawing). You can't go wrong with Andrew Loomis.

    You're doing great! Keep it up!

    Hey, sorry about the injury, man. But it's good to hear that everything's going well in spite of it and big plus on nabbing a cintiq too! For your paintings I'd suggest focusing more on your construction and perspective drawings, giving your forms more solidity in 3D space. Keep posting and keep up the hard work!

    Katy Perry mess around, probably about 20 mins on the BnW, 20 mins on the Purple headed one & about 20 on the far right Lipless one.

    Hi there, Looks like you have a nice start for your sketchbook, I like the brushwork of the hair in the first one. If that comes to you naturally, try to see this one as a starting point and make this brushwork your own. It can become very powerfull

    If you are proud of what you did yesterday,
    you haven`t done today
