    Another standard/clique warrior character I was playing with. Let me know if the lighting is bad, please. I was playing with the grayscale values still studying that...

    Hey man! Saw you in the Critique section, I don' remember that you got any good feedback. What I would advice you to do is practice one thing at a time. At the moment you have trouble with perspective, anatomy, color and value all at once with the way you're working. You have good ideas and characters, and your general feel for proportions in the body is quite good, but other than that you're going to have a hard time attacking your problems if you challenge yourself with everything at once! I think you should try to make characters with just lines first, so that you can iron out as many anatomy and construction problems as you can before you start applying value and color to them. For instance, in your last post you ask about skin tones, when the main problem with that drawing/painting is the proportions of the guy's head: his cranium is tiny, both upwards and backwards.

    Here's Proko's video on drawing the head from the side, check it out:

    And the general one from any angle:

    Keep it up!

    Thank you! I've been looking for some honest feedback. Finally. I will take that into consideration for sure and plug it into further pieces as well as this one

    Playing more with getting the anatomy more narrowed down toward "correct". Excuse the confusing workflow..I'm just throwing stuff down until I think it looks decent.

    Laying it down. Trying to get to flesh out the value. I'm being very analytical and worrying about the line art-as I am doing greyscale. Typical me. I need to stop it.

    Touched up the proportions on the head. Does the head still seems too small?

    Heya!
    I wholly agree with nouge's advice. It would be best if you took one step at a time...and for this purpose I'd personally suggest that you lay down the tablet for a while and work with paper and pencil instead.

    Looking at the progression here you seem to get distracted by how easy it is in digital media to pick up a brush and go much farther than the study calls for -stop that.
    Just sit down and do anatomy studies for a while, no values, no color. (Get some Andrew Loomis books!) When you're doing those, the knowledge of form/mass will come automatically, and with that you'll learn how to correctly place shadows. Then you can go back to photoshop and start learning color theory, but right now you're only messing up your own progress.
