    Some serious painting going on here. I agree with Noe, try not to overwork your paintings! Sometimes you just have to get a new board or canvas and start over to solve some issues while keeping things fresh and dynamic.
    This one has that freshness you start out with:

    A really sunny feel, and I think the colors you used here helped a lot. Skin is pink and red and yellow in the sunlight. This one works very well too, even though the color is much more unsaturated: (and a good composition)

    The skull study from life: absolute prettiness. Why not start with an even base color in your paintings, and then adding shadow and color in the same way as you add your shadows in the drawing? Maybe that would wold organize your brush strokes a bit better in some areas.
    Annnnd... keep painting you obviously fell in love with it.

    Hi thanks for the comments. I haven't had much time to be around here, i also don't have much stuff to post now...

    Marleen- thanks for the critiques, I think I also like other stages better than the final, I have severall paintings like that that I started with an idea and then changed it a lot, those paintings end up taking too much time, but I think i learn a lot with them. The tense look was on purpose on that one, but I do tend to exagerate the neck bones... I like it...

    Artificial_g- Thanks, I actually think those two are some of the best paintings I did latelly, i am glad you like them. fortunatelly latelly i have been able to finish some paintings quite rapidly without overworking them. thanks for the advices.

    some more mosquito sketches:

    By the way I am going to do 2 individual art exhibits until the end of the year. That's something I wanted to do for a long time and now I will have the chance to do it!
    I am very happy about it.

    another painting (acrylic on canvas):

    Heya!

    How is the exhibit going? Did you get nice responses from people?
    I'm really admiring how you make a project (painting) for yourself and stick with it until you spent quite a lot of time on it.. Should do that more myself.

    I think you're doing great! figures have improved tremendously, the surfer girl looks hot, and I LOVE the elephant painting ^^

    On the last painting my only crit is I think that the water on the top of the image looks too textured, and inconsistent. It's nicely painted around the castle though.. It would be nice if you spent a little more time on the water on the top of the image as well I think. But really nice painting anyways!

    Keep it up, and sorry for not stopping by here for so damn long.
    Love
    Marleen

    Hi Marleen, thanks for passing by and for the usual great critiques
    Thanks, I think part of the improvement has to due with me trying to use more reference latelly.
    About the sea not being as well worked in the top it was intentional, and I do like it that way, but maybe it could be better if it were more worked... I don't know, but the idea was that the center of attention should be the stronghold!

    Anyway here's another WIP:

    Heya
    If it was intentional then It's all good ofcourse! ^^
    On this last one; looking nice!! I really like how the folds in the jeans are with lines only, and the upper body is more painted.. Maybe it is your intention to paint the pants also, but I kinda like it like this ^^
    On the torso: Maybe try to do a little more colour blocking in before starting? It looks like your highlights are a little all over the place on the torso. Nice shape and form though!
    I think the left hand might be a tiny bit too small, not sure though, it might just be further away than the rest. Face is looking nice, and arms as well!

    Love
    Marleen

    Hi Marleen, I have considered some of the points you have addressed, especially, the size of his left hand, I also think it may be too small, not very sure, because it is suposed to be further away from the point of view and also slightly tilted... but I will surelly try to fix it until it looks better.
    About the jeans I am not sure how I will leave it, I also like the way it is now, but I might experiment a little more on it.
    About the painting on the torso, I am also experimenting, I have to say that this pic looks more saturated and contrasted than the original, I am seing that now, so I think that may be affecting the predominance of the highlights.
    Thanks again for al the usefull crits

    #506: Wow this is looking great so far! Really nice skintones on the legs.. Her right calf might be a little too thin though, but I'm not sure, but I guess you might want to recheck that area. ^^ About the top she's wearing: maybe you could draw out the folds and make the darker areas a little darker so it doesn't become too flat in the image?.. Well it's looking completely lovely already

    #507; Great muscles ^^ Nice drawings, look well proportioned. My only crit: on the face of the lowest guy: the mouth and chin are maybe drawn a little too much towards the left.

    #508: Wow! Another exhibition huh? That's a good sign I think? Sketches are looking good too. Good of you to practice faces, I think that is a thing you're having problems with often I think? They turned out quite well, especially the two sideviews I think. Be careful to not make the eyes too big, it is something I see come back often in your sketches, also you sometimes tend to put the mouth slightly too low, but the place of the mouth varies a lot from person to person as well, so it's much less prominent.
    On the second sketch (of the woman standing) I think you made the stomach area slightly too short, otherwise a really nice sketch!

    Great improvement man and congrats again on the exhibitions.
    Love
    Marleen.
