    Hi all,
    Another update of things I've been drawing this week. Two backgrounds for animation. Some figure studies and a WIP. Might post that one in the critique centre also.

    Didn't get much art done this week, but continued the angel and made some quick artwork for an event flyer. I'll be able to post more next friday. I'll update the SB weekly. Thanks for visiting!

    Some more flyer artwork this week plus a couple of master studies for composition and colour. The colour study is of Sorolla. I forget the others at the moment, but is anyone wants to know I will look it up.

    Did some more composition studies this week after having some difficulty coming up with one for the guy attacked by demons. Still not entirely happy. The gorgon one I'm more satisfied with, but I'll probably play around with the background some more.

    Cool work! I'm really digging the one with the knight and the shadow hands. Great story and composition!
    Shoulder to the wheel, my friend!

    Thanks Dina2342! I'll finish that one at some point and post it here.

    In the meantime, I didn't get much done over Christmas, but I did continue the gorgon one a bit.

    I like those composition studies! On the gorgon - your colours are looking pretty washed out at the moment, and there's very little variation in saturation, not a lot of warm and cool (everything just looks shaded with black, or a darker shade of the same colour), and no local colour variations - assuming she's made of some sort of flesh, it wouldn't be the same tone all the way through. Your surfaces also don't seem to react to light differently, they all seem to be made of the same material, which is an issue in a lot of your work. Maybe some material studies would help? As would reading up on colour theory. =) Good comp stuff all around, though, very nice picture construction and good solid drawing!

    Revidescent - thanks for the crits and compliments! I can see what you mean about the saturation and shading. I did a quick check with the colour picker and the saturations are indeed all very close together. As for the shading, I hadn't realised I was relying on black so much, but yes, also true. I've been reading the Colour an Light book by Gurney lately, but I suppose I have to be more deliberate in my practice and implementing the stuff I read about. Material studies sounds like a good idea also.
    Thanks for stopping by!

    I'm realy digging your paintings... You have some reallly cool ideas!! =]] and well executed too! I love the first coloured version of the snake lady! more than the second version... it's more... raw, undefined... blurry. I like that very much. Gives me a better sense of how you work your brushes


    Hello! I really want to be a good artist... Being a girl who can draw some mediocre things just won't do anymore.
    Can you help me? I want MOARRRR!!

    Thanks Zerosete for the kind words! I also like prominent brushwork. I suppose I still have the tendency to overwork all the parts of a painting, but I'm working on it.

    Right now I'm declaring my gorgon done. Moving on to other pieces in any case. I started blocking in the colour on demon one, and found out I have some studying to do on armor design and rendering metal.

    Whoa, you're a beast! With my fresh look I can say there's something wrong with the legs: the knee on the left one and the ankle on the right one. And the left arm looks weird at the moment. Per contra, the composition, lighting and whole concept is simply delighting. Good luck with finishing this awesome piece!

    RafaelGoncalves Thank you

    katxhibitionism Thanks for the comment! The leg still has problems, but the arm looks better I think. Man, foreshortening is hard.

    Also still have no idea what I'm going to put in the black area underneath.

    Because I don't really have much new art, just polishes of previous ones for my portfolio, here are some illustrations I did as a commission two years back.
