Hey, Sup guys. I started a sketchbook here many years ago but lost the drive to keep up with posting cause of school. I'm determined to post everyday now while trying to build a strong portfolio over the next couple years. I would really appreciate it if you guys would give some firm feedback, I really want to push my design and painting skills far in order to get a job in Video Game design.
A couple of studies, designs and a min grey scale speed painting.

I really like the firetailed girl, she is cool and has a nice design. I would like to see her taken further.
I see you are struggling some with using digital brushes. There is definitely a learning curve with them.
I really like this guy's videos, he definitely helped me to figure out how to better use brushes.
Watch digital painting 101, and do all the practice exercises he gives.
I hope this helps out a bit, and I hope that this new Sketchbook goes well for you!
See you around if you keep posting! =]

@Scott Harris Thanks!
@greyskill. Thanks. I'm planning to take her digital and do a coloured version. Yeah, ended up just using one brush that I used for blocking for the entire thing. I was reading up on a tutorial that said it's better to use a harsher brush then transition to a softer one for details. Problem is there are so many custom brushes it's so easy to get overwhelmed. Thanks for the link!
Today's update! Work in progress of a painting,some unfinished designs i'm still working on and sketches and some tonal studies to get ready for grey scale painting. Trying to think of everything in shapes.

@kingdoop Thanks! Still trying to work out this painting thing, but I'll post it as soon as I finish.
@RiccardoUltimo Hey, Thanks. Gotta do something everyday no excuses.
Back to the basics with some head studies. Trying to focus on all the areas i'm weak on. (Placement of eyes and noses, Planes of the face and shape, etc.,)
Some misc. Luke Skywalker thumbnails for an weekly art collective i'm a part of.

Some more work on this character again. Gonna shift that left arm over. I accented a few areas I need to emphasize more with value.
Might not do anything with this but I wanna go more in-depth with this character's props and weapons.
Some more photo studies
Getting really comfortable working longer periods at a time digitally. Gonna see this one all the way through.
Critiques are all welcome.

Some rough ideas for the new CHOW topic.
Forgot my pen so I did a bunch of traditional stuff.
Did a redesign of the movie version of Quicksilver.
Little speed paint from imagination. Time to take of the training wheels
Some longer studies I've just started as well.
