    hola ragazzo the fist sketch has the same problems as the ghoul, if you zoom out the creature becomes this big block of dark color and you can't tell where the gun ends and his face begins, can't say more about it since its so sketchy. The dragon feels really stable, simmetrical, no action at all, and that paw smack in the middle of the picture doesn't help, but i like how you detached it from the background. Keep at it! Maybe do some digital studies that should help in getting more confidence with the program.

    incredibly inspirational sketchbook sir, it got me working let me tell you hahahaha, and great to see that you are getting into digital, theres always a backdrop in skill when moving from traditional to digital, but try to keep your line loose and use the tools in layers to define and redefine the ideas you want to portray the strongest cant wait for more updates!

    Looks good man, but try tightening up some of those edges on the really high contrast bits. Will improve some depth if you seperate the frontal areas overlapping the back. Also detail with some small brushes would help too.
    (This is all irrelevant though if you did these fast/were paying attention to anatomy etc)
    Good stuff though, don't do nearly as much studies as I should do.

    Ha! I have that same skull, dude! (with the two missing front teeth and interesting nasal cavity). But you left out the spring that keeps the jaw shut, and the clasps that keep the top of the skull on

    Good stuff.

    I love the brush and ink stuff, fluid lines and everything reads very well!

    On the "Lovecraftian ghoul", I like the pose and background, but you seem to have put the same amount of detailing everywhere, at least inside the character. I'd like to see more economy of effort in the shadows and less interesting parts - big brushes and as few strokes as you can get away with, and more detailed rendering on the points of interest like the lit face and hands of the ghoul. The overexposed lighting also hurts my eyes a bit.

    On the horned trooper with mechanic insect legs too, there's no focal point and my eye is drawn to weird places like the relatively much defined shadow of the torso and the sharp, contrasty shadows between the tubes at the bottom. So try to take more advantage of soft edges too to keep some areas less busy.

    On the wealthy bad guy on 3187, the colors remind me of a plastic miniature because you've used white and black on highlights and shading. Would be good idea to find photo reference of how the color of, say, red fabric or gold, changes color from highlight to midtone to shadow, it's rarely just a change of lightness. It's also always very useful to do still lives of whatever you have lying on your table.

    The skull studies look really good!

    @PHATandy: tell me about it, i'm not used to doing this kind of studies but i think it's time for me to start doing 'em
    thanks for the suggestions, let me know if the last one looks better (see above).Also, what is "fast" for this kind of studies? cause i spent about 40 min on each skull! (except for the first one, which was done waaaaay too quickly)

    @p sage: i don't have this skull, actually! there's from photoref.I've got a cast skull which i should start using for some life studies.Thanks for popping by!

    @smuli: hey dude! thanks for the spot on crits! hoping the recent studies will help me make the next ones better

    Working on some more studies (added a couple of skulls in the post above), but in the meantime i felt like playing around with an old robot sketch, experimenting with some new approaches.

    Man cant offer feedback on your panels and drawings, these are awesome for me, well i always loved your work anyway. The digitals with such good drawing foundation you have, i think they just need more work in the values, more modeling if i could say. But that can also be a matter of style.
    Keep sharing

    Great to see you doing some observational work! The sense of bright illumination you get on those skull studies is very nice. I hope you keep digging into these.

    The work on the skull is great, such as on the sculptures. You don't quite have the self portrait though. The eyes part is pretty spot on, but the nose-mouth-jaw is not that good.

    Cheers!!

    .
    Nice update!

    Of the scribbled figures (A-H), I am partial to B and H.
    Of the Shark Dude, I prefer the current version -- way less cliché and much more evocative. It's got some photorealistic moments to it -- very convincing. I hope you'll pay special attention to (and have a lot of fun with) resolving the intersection of shoulders and head. I don't recall seeing anything rendered in this way from you, but I know I've missed some posts. Looks great!

    The comic strips on the last page were great. Nice feel of tension and story telling. The grey scale pieces are really nice as well. That shark guy is boss

    i will not mention anything about the sketches, such lines dont come easy and thats shows your skill. The shark character looks lots better like that. Nice play with the edges and the head doesnt lead out of the composition. Keep sharing !!!

    @lionheartGFX: thank you!

    @chevy28360: thanks!!

    @kingkostas: thanks man!

    here's my latet digital attempt.

    I used one of the mech doodles from the previous update as starting point, and i was inspired by my favourite
    mech design of all times (the MS Zaku II), and Frazetta's "Conan the adventurer" painting.
    This was a lot of fun to work on

    Love the colours on the mech. The only thing is that it could use a bit sharper edges where you want to focus the attention (around the head I guess)

    Keep up the good work!!
