like the first one, nice improvement.
One thing that is lacking is the pencil rendering, get practicing dude.
I dont like the last two, lots of anatomy problems generally to do with proportions.
On the 2nd one, the light aint doing it for me.
The highlights are hitting the metal parts, but not the middle bits.
Keep practicing my friend
Yo, i posted this in your last sketchbook (last post woot?) so, uh, here it is again.
Hey Dile. I see your name everywhere so i was shocked when i realized i had never looked through here! Very inspiring to see the change of heart around page 15, and you've had a huge increase in cool-factor since that point.
Sorry if someone else has said this, i didn't have time to read every post
I know you have studied a lot of anatomy, and honestly, that is not the most important thing when learning the human body. Draw from life, all you can. Whether it be quick gestures of classmates or poses from a model, drawing humans from life will cement an understanding of the body far better than anatomy ever can. They are both helpful, but life drawing can and will ace your skill up a lot when you begin to do more of it.
Also, i see a lot of monochrome-ish stuff in here, bring a little more variety!
I hope this post was helpful. Keep drawing/painting, it's worked so far, and you'll continue to get better!
New stuff is great, i will be watching your progress from here
The 2nd armor guy has a cool concept, but the lighting isn't as good as the other two. The green and red bits should be shifting a little more to the yellow light, which should help them both be more at harmony. Also, it looks color balanced. I could be wrong... but anyway, a better way to get warmer lights and cooler shadows is to use an overlay layer. On the overlay layer - for shadows use a dark desaturated cool color, for lights a bright fully saturated warm color. But better yet is painting it right from the start .
Good stuff on the thorny ship, looking forward to that improved render!

Holy dile O.o that´s the new sketchbook you have talked ohmm

Sweet masterpaint did you used this time painter ? anyway it´s looking good from the colours and the form , gonna keep an eye to the hand looking to flat and small so see ya Mya ^^
Dile! Great progress. Not to many crits from me here, except just work on your poses, it still shows some stiffness. Your rendering is coming along very nicely. The only one I would actually really say anything about is the character with the swords: The background may either be to bright, or you need to lighten him up a bit. Can't give much oppinion on painting because I'm not experienced with it too much. Gonna be subscribing, and looking forward to seeing more!
