    Yo! Move that ear so that it meets up whith the joint of the jaw. If you look at a skull in profile, i'm sure you'll find tons of info that could be used to make that profile more interesting. Also, I think i see a bad habit of staying too monochromatic. Take that ogre for example...place him in any enviroment...decide the time of day, weather...anything.

    I don't know what else you are working on besides the things you are posting here. But it seems to my eyes that you need to vary more between doing imagination stuff and studies. Might sound like a boring clichè (esp coming from a brainwhashed academy wank like me), but look up the old masters. Later work by Velasquez, paintings by Caravaggio, Ribera and Vermeer will teach you ALOT about how to distribute detail without ruining the overrall tonal design of your work. I agree with tex about the rendering. Unify your values and their shapes. I'll try to clarify: Look at your (irc td) fungus piece. Now, almost half close your eyes to the point that you are only looking through the cracks of your eyelids. Notice that by doing this, the amount of detail have been reduced and the shapes that make up the value planes has become more clear and distinct; more unified. Open your eyes and see the mess of that disturbs this effect. In this way, squinting your eyes can help you decide what and what to not develop further and can help you se strenghts/weaknesses in the "underlying" tonal structure. Work towards having the clarity you saw when you squinted, in a piece you can view with your eyes open. (Can't seem to find a less awkward way of saying it..)

    But hey, maybe you know all this, and in that case....well...hope at least i was somewhat clear about stuff.

    Cheers!

    thank you very much for taking the time to give good crits - i appreciate it

    yeah, i think indecision is a major hurdle for me...as i did nothing but black n' white for years, i still tend to rely on value for plane shifts, i think....but i'm gradually realizing the power of hues. this also pertains to my noodlings...i *think* my method of ink hatching bleeds over into my digitalz...old habits die hard.

    i'm fairly aware of my weaknesses...but not always the extent. so i'm always happy to get a smack in the face from people in teh know

    cheers!

    Wow. You have very refreshing design style. It's different but appealing at the same time.

    Keep it up!

    quickish study from ref.

    nothing amazing, and very rough, but happy with how my study process is coming along. going from the macro to the micro instead of just starting to render at random points is really speeding things up...heh.

    Very strong stuff here mate. You have had tremendous improvement lately, and as you said, your studyprocess has i improved hugely. I love the woman walking at the beach thing, great values and weighting.

    Would you mind giving me a few pointers as well?

    Nice stuff here Squids. Liking the ogre looking fellow. Didn't think you'd ever get out of ink. But this is a good change up and you have a pretty good color palette going for you here. Keep rocking man and I'll see you around!
