    the lat one is nice. What I like: clean edges, clouds, metalic look-like, colours.
    what I don't like: those gray "things" have no aim of beeing... just 'something' sticked to the baloon. Try to draw something, that COULD work.

    @Bloodsbane: Thx, actually I think I messed up perspective majorly on this one.

    @Dile: Yeah I have to rush two Take care!

    @Denysiuk: Hmm yeah, I'm so short of attention that I always feel like I'm missing something..

    so as here:

    yeah I like the last one, although it would just
    make the perspective off if he puts a line there...
    ( just to explain, the line is above the picture... )

    Ara ara! ^^

    @Orozco: Thanks for watching my stuff and commenting

    @Denysiuk: He, I actually began with colors, but those looked so awful and oversaturated that I finally changed into grayscales. It then became obvious that I totally messed up my values!

    @Dile: Yeah you got that right! Horizon is above , the fact that you recognise this tells me I didn't totally mess up perspective again

    Whatever, here a portrait of an aspiring psychologist:



    posted step-by-step, too, first drawing with some shadows and highlights and then painting! HAHAHAaaa...

    On a side-note, my jaw is hurting right now. Tried really hard to look intelligent...

    Digitydigity.. time for an update

    @Denysiuk: Hehe, glad you like it The nose actually looks like that, I'm always fascinated by it when I look in the mirror, I rather feared some you would address the various problem I had with the facial structure, since I was constantly struggling with that. But obviously they aren't that obvious and I managed the structure in the end quite well.

    @Dile: Thanks, but honestly, I don't think it's the best piece in this SB so far. I you nailed me on it, I'd say it's That one. It just strucks such the feeling I was in when I drew it and besides all without ref and with so little technique. Makes me proud still.

    @jca: haha, I don't know what you mean with mark making, but thanks for the comment mister I always strife for a finished painting but I always get punshed out in the middle of the proces too

    So what, scannertime!

    The anatomystudies this week royally sucked so I'm posting just 2 of them as a proof I did them:




    Here a head that I liked:


    Now some characters:




    And on a completely unrelated side-note: Welcome my new friend copic warm grey no.1 !


    That's all.

    you've improved a hella lot! your shading is getting better and your lines more refined. i would work on making your shadows darker and for women, making the shading on the softer areas like the breasts much finer/smoother or else it gives the skin a coarse look.

    A quick one

    @Dile: Thanks! Well, you're still not missing anything. Since I was pretty much drawing like 3 months at all when starting this SB

    @Tetsuo: Hahaha , Well, I'm still testing them. Still trying to find the right dose, then I'll make a lot of money!

    @hpslashluvr: Yeah, I see that my shadows are a bit soft and what you mean about the soft edges part. Thanks for the heads up

    Quick speedy, intention was to simplify and making my point with as few means as possible:

    Whoaaa I have so much to catch up on @_@

    This reminds me a lot of Ayers Rock, only not red. These speed enviros don't have anywhere near the life and polished~ness of the desert one, but look like fun to explore digital colouring

    I agree with Denysuik on this one feeling a bit too separate, it doesn't seem to mesh too well. I'm also feeling the bright royal blue on the background distracts too much from the fairly dark and unsaturated figure.

    I found this one really interesting, but my first though was: it looks like it should be round but isn't, then: it looks kinda like a tennis ball with metal bits, then: how the heck does a tennis ball with large metal bits on it fly?! Still, the concept is a really interesting idea, and the shading is lovely.

    The girl in the shattered ice/glass/something is a really interesting concept, and its coming along really nicely... hope you're planning on working a little more on it

    Awesome self portrait! The right nostril seems a bit off though, and I'm not sure if you're biting your lower lip or don't have a very obvious one.I really like the shading on the skin.

    Copics look like fun, so does doing lots of quick potrait, I should really try that. The latest girl reminds me of an octopus.

    You're quite a tenacious one, and you can really see it paying off.

    wtfstfugtgbai!!!1

    @Chisa: Oh, you're doing some nice feedback lately Thank you very much. And, I did indeed bite my underlips in the portrait, had the idea that produces some interesting shapes below the mouth.

    Whatever, decided, I had to begin again studies of something I'm utter crap in, so off to environments! I try to specialise in them for the next few months, so don't expect too high results soon from me:

    (mostly a cloud-study)


    Off I go...

    Nice, definitetly achieved a rolling effect. Looks like a cumulus ;P Can use more definition.

    Skies are probably the most forgiving thing to draw in nature. As long as the light and darks makes sense and it recedes well, then it gives the illusion of a sky. Try trees for a challenge.

    My advise: make bigger pictures. First zoom out to have a little one, make the biggest shapes, then zoom in and work with details... when you are drawing the sky, try to use wider format, for example 1000x3000 pix.
    And give her http://img93.imageshack.us/img93/7495/digi410zf.jpg bigger contrasts... also pay attention to bones... her right hand seems to be made of gum
    cheers

    Yay! I owe you for the absence, so I figured I should do a good job Don't really have much to say about your latest enviro though, other to agree with Chichigo about the lack of definition - it looks like each cloud is made up of different shades of the same colour, there isn't much variation... not sure if that makes sense though.

    hoi

    @Chichigo: Well I for myself think that clouds are very hard, since you still have to find the right values. I agree about the form, though. Doesn't have to be that precise. Trees are on my list, too, btw. They will come later.

    @Denysiuk: Hmmm... I don't know if 1000x3000 wouldn't be a tad to much? gotta try it out, though. Just have to reach the stage where I can work on the details

    @Chisa: Nah, you owe me nothing But thanks for your comment, nonetheless!

    Well, I really thought about posting less the upcoming weeks because the things I'm producing are aesthetically shit. I'm studying hard in a field I have no knowledge off, and that will show in the upcoming images. I'm posting this, nonetheless, even if I only get sarcastic and negative crits for them. They are not very original, either. At the moment, I'm trying to learn from others how to build up a proper and believable environment. Much to learn! But so frustrating at the same time!

    Environments scare me, I don't think I'm gonna touch them for a long while yet. The second one is better than the first, and the third better than the second (or maybe its because the landscape is easier?). Only thing I can point out is that the mountains in the second picture look pretty saturated for something that's in the distance. I'll leave the more knowledgeable people to give a proper critique

    Keep going! To infinity and beyond!

    @Chisa: Yeah Environments scare the hell out of me, too. And that's exactly the reason why I do them right now.

    @Denysiuk: Hahaha, yes, I'm certainly not the one to complain about your line-confidence Working on ittttttttttttt

    Not much time for bragging, days are busy these days:

    You probably know yourself, that last one has no tonal range. Believe it or not, you may think they're crappy, but these got a great impressionistic feel. So the mood's there, just keep working on details.
    I can't really tell what this is click me.

    Booyah

    @Asoir: We will see about that! Thanks for the propbs, man! Gotta share some love in your SB, too

    @Chichigo: You're right, I think they're crappy, but I wouldn't continue if I didn't think I've got potential, right? Thanks for posting!

    Well, I thought I should share with you the beginning of my drawing. Somewhat 2 years ago I began drawing somewhat more regular, meaning 1 or 2 drawings a month. They looked like this:












    This is still my favourite from the stuff I did then

    So, I had no idea of figures, values and all that shit (Do I have now? Well, not THAT much more ) But I did draw what I see. And that pleased me enough to go on with the drawing thing.

    cheers.

    That's pretty good for just picking drawing up out of nowhere! You've come a pretty long way from there though, you can really see the improvement in line quality, shading and facial anatomy.

    @Chisa: Thanks, I think I'm very talented, too But since talent isn't anything without passion, I still must struggle hard for every little step forward.

    Some WIPish painting. It sucks yet, but it will shine when I put some more hours on it:

    Got some good sketches going in here. What I would like to see more of, is more confident line work, alot of it is too scratchy and unsure, I know its hard to get away from, i used to do it alot too. But since they are only sketches, try to do it in on line instead of a bunch of scratchy lines.
