    Thanks for the comment in my Sb. When picking colors I use different color adjustment tools (like color balance) and if I'm stuck I might overlay some photos or older paintings on top. I'm too noob to pick good colors from the beginning manually

    Keep practicing and try not to rush your drawings!

    h2rra: thanks for the tip, do you bother explaining your technique: do you use in the final stage or during the coloring process ?do you use the more (blue/red/grenn ...) filter !

    You're right about rushing, i'm always talking to myself things like that (honestly it's my environement who rush for results)

    there two other sketchs from imagination:
    one arab living on desert and one musician slave (jariya)

    after reading some general notes on digital painting and colors , i copied this photo to practice. I tried to use different hues to avoid a dull result:
    any critics ?

    anyone can explain this stange thing happening to me:
    i bought a macbook pro with 2.4 ghz and 2go ram and then
    when painting this one 2480 x 1748 pixels, the computer slowed down !!!
    the most stange that photoshop cs2 on macOS was much slower than photoshop cs3 on windows !!! bizarre

    The point is I constantly tweak the colors during the process using different tools. But seriously, you shouldn't be listening to me. I have the shittiest workflow

    Just make sure you get your drawing and values right!

    I like the last update!

    Some pretty cool pencils here, but you should try and work a little cleaner, and also more focused studies would do you good^^

    There's certainly a lot of progress on show here. I think your quick figure studies are really starting to shine. My favorite is the seated woman next to the car in post 93. Keep it up.

    It looks like you've done a lot of work here, and that it shows in your improvement. You have a much more elegant line now than in the sketches from the start of your book. Very Good, keep goin'.
