    Welcome to the forums, Lucas!

    Those are good studies and finished pics. Some digital paintings are a bit blurred, but nothing serious. Maybe use a slightly harder brush if you feel like it.

    I'd just recommend shrinking down your scanned stuff so it fits comfortably on a single screen. A good rule is that it should look roughly as big on the screen as it is on paper. And, yes, I hold my traditional art against the screen so I can match the size.

    Keep up!

    Good start actually softer work gives bit quieter mood take a look Eugene Carriere but you can definitely push edges more to get clearer focus areas by using contrast (can be any other as well, not just edges) where you want to people to look at first, second, third... or what is important telling story or what you wanna tell. http://www.conceptart.org/forums/sho...ips-and-Tricks also you could study old masters how they did it. http://www.conceptart.org/forums/for...MASTER-STUDIES

    About brush work you could use bigger brushes to get more clarity, then move to smaller and smaller also try to find proper size for job

    I love to try the master studies. Never knew they did that here. I will certainly give it a try. Thanks for the tips!

    Today I wanted to start my day off with a little background story so that everyone knows who I am and what my goals are.

    My name is Lucas Weij and I am a 3D artist working in Amsterdam.
    The reason I am joining this forum is because I lack the knowlege or maybe more the experience of making art. When making 3D art for myself, I see that I always dive into the 3D part too quickly. And that's fine for production work, but I see it is limitting myself on the art part of it. There is lacking a story or concept behind my 3D art. It's all just pretty renders. So I wanna learn more about the Art principles of making art in 2D so I can use it to also make 3D illustrations. My goal is to create my own style and do my own thing next to my work. So people will see me as a proper artist and not just a production artist.

    So any feedback on my 2D or 3D work is welcome.
    I am here to learn and any feedback is welcome

    You can see my work on www.LucasWeij.com

    I like what I see! I suggest you study constructive anatomy, starting with the head, for instance through http://www.proko.com

    Hands and feet remain a difficult subject.

    The things I will improve on are as followed
    - environment/perspective
    - color and light
    - Anatomy
    - Composition

    In other words all the principles of art.
