Suda: Haha yeah! I ended up taking 5 mins or so for the last one. Just posted so people didn’t guilt me about not choosing reference from life XD. Thank you though, I appreciate your words and advice
Nysta: I wouldn’t have thought about the game o__o I’ll check it out. Thanks!! I needa do plenty of perspective studies. I definitely agree with you, I actually did that yesterday Youll see now muehehe. OOH DO IT THEN.Thanks for your time.
Falapoco: Thanks . Seems you draw often as well from your sb
Zou: You knowwwww I said they aren’t as good and I gave you my secrets! Thank you
Buxu: Huhhhh the reviews are pretty mixed, but I’ll read the reviews a bit more. Only scanned the surface. Thanks!
color of b&W piece, must add bg to it
YES IT SUCKS YO. I must study the arm, hands, perspective, EVERYTHINGGG woot
straight to color... i don't like it now
Was just a test, doesn't mean I hate it any less though ahha
Okay skintone studies. Uhhh Providing ref to shame myself of the differences ( in hue & proportion )that are obvious.
Must learn how to apply the colors without muddy.
All full opacity to start off with
Did challenge with Zou :3
Your study time is cracking you up some new grounds, discovering certain areas
of the backstage. You have already found that little golden line hidden in the distant
side of the frosty rainbow. I like the way you handle your paintings and I like the way
you approach art in general. The studies that you are doing, they are sticking right
to your skin, you are a quick learner, there are students that have to do a million and
billion life drawings, so they could get the hang of the basics, but as I realize in your case,
it’s almost enough to do it once or twice. I am really admiring your progress and evolution.
Maybe you are a natural or something, but you are good with colors, values and the brush
work is just amazing. I like that living sad painting and I like that girl above that holding
an axe, may I ask what brush do you use to get those strokes, what opacity, I just want
to paint relaxed like that. I am sorry for not being regular here, and I want to thank
you for such a detailed review and reply in my book. I think that being around you
pays off in each and every aspect, so I admire the people who can do so.
Bato: Welcome back after your short break~ Work even harder than me! I’m lazy
Zou: What does the oil brush in PS look like? Thank you same to you
Ltpliss: Haha I’m on the verge of the frosty rainbow!! I’m not a natural… It’s about what you do with the studies. Observe a bit more, and try to think about why something looks the way it does. If you can’t figure out/don’t know why then look it up or ask me :3 I want to help you succeed as well if possible. Artists should help each other out. The brush is a rectangular brush with 100% opacity, around 60% flow for blending. The spacing is down low to minimize streaks. You should use 100% flow at the start to reduce the amount of muddiness and to help define edges
No problem buddy!
Toffeeliz: Thank you ^__ ^
Midterms are this week..... Excuses D:<
Also I looked in the mirror this morning and my face shape has appeared to change.
It's either my observation skills have improved or my actual facial shape has changed
... I'm hoping its the former xD
Color studies. These took way too long, at max 20min for ea
Learned some new stuff though
Before anyone says something, the turtle is an actual photo
hey, thanks for the critique on my sketchbook - my textures are just horrible, I really need to work on that, thanks for reminding me tho :'D
I like your style, the girls look very cute and I think the no opacity studies are gonna help a lot
maybe you could experiment some more with brushes, sometimes you're gonna find one that is gonna speed up your progress a lot or just gives a nice effect
Milsch: No problem! Thanks I hope the studies will aid me as well. And oh… you’re going to see in this post that I abused textured brushes ahha!
Fantasyartist: Thank you I just checked your sb, but forgive me for awhile. I'm gonna have to review yours a bit more extensively to find critique that hasn't already been said
Zou: Oh I see, okay I’ll try to find or create brush like that to experiment . I’ve never used traditional oil but I do love the look they create –sigh- so wonderful
Buxu: I’ve commented on your sb, hopefully the advice will help ease your frustrations ; _ ; no suffer
Stuff that I said I'd update a couple of days ago. Can't find a few pages though.
Finally used my charcoal sticks instead of charcoal pencil...
uhh my camera glitched somehow? No I didn't cut her in half D:<
Shit! Where's the lightsource?? Ughhhh I need to study more

Reason: one image stayed huge no matter how much i edited the size?? so iremoved it
Nice! Pencil chick, even though shes cut in half , looks amazing! As always, good studies. However, the last piece contains material/texture but shows almost no form. These mountains are actually preety nice start. You only need to control the chaos you've created . Some tips, remember that air isn't invisible. The more mass of air is between the viewer and the object the more blue (or whatever color of the sky is) it becomes. Oh, remember about gravity. It affects air aswell, so the closer to the ground the more masses of air are being acumulated...Hope that makes sense. Also, try to keep warm lights and cool shadows but you already know that. Keep up the good work!
P.S. about the image that stayed huge. Maybe you tried to change resolution and didn't change the actuall size of the image which is in centimeters or something? ^^
