Thanks Fish, yeah, that enviro could use a ton more work. Like texture overlays, and stylish period details like barrels or construction or carts, and better rendering on the buildings, and actual perspective instead of made up shite. Guess the one I posted is still a WIP, maybe I'll work on it more. Good News: coup d'état, I wasn't happy with my directionless drawing class, so now it's a conceptart class. Which means I don't have to do both any more, they are one and the same, so double the work in half the time or something like that. Too bad I'm not getting any real instruction, but I'll take what I can get. Lots of freetime now. Shit, I'm using this as a blog. I'll post sketches later tonight.
edit: or not

hey, the girl is looking good just the arm that bothes me for some reason ,maybe its too thin ..as fishspawn said on the enviro sharpen up the foreground but yeh you probably would learn more from doing a new one
That last oil... me like it Nice brushstrokes going on, so loose and fresh. What color are you using for the underpainting?
And I really like the chow pencil better than the color one. The colors/values are somewhat confusing, can't place my finger on it.
You promised some sketches, so I'm waiting for them
Heheh, finally someone gets on my case for being a lazy bastard. Yeah, English paper kicked me in the ass the last few days. Here's a sketch I did of St. Peters off a photo I had. Probably needs more work, but more just an experiment for multimedia, inkwash, and white and black conte
also, had one of my models back last night, so finished up her painting. kinda jacked the face, but the shirt turned out cool. The underpainting in both paintings is burnt siena mixed with cadmium red dark and titanium white, diluted with paint thinner, and spread however you want it. Can't stand painting on white. Wasn't a real fan of my chow either, execution wasn't as good as I had it planned in my head, but still it didn't suck as much as my second one. It didn't make it to poll, which was kind of disappointing, but oh well.
It sucks that your chow didn't make it to the poll. Even thou the color scheme is not of my liking, I think it's a good piece, and finished enough for the chow.
Thanks for the explanation on your underpainting! And yes, the shirt turned out frantastic.
