    Something different. Didn't feel like drawing the ogre, so here is Jesus.

    The text is from the song 'Erotic Literature' from 'My Dying Bride'.

    the one of Jesus has a much more relaxed shading style, I think it would be worth using that rather than the smoother look your elf people have. And something people are always telling me - really emphasise the darks/shadows, and use lots of contrast - eg, bring out the line of a jaw by shading a really dark shadow underneath, it suddenly makes the light on the jaw that much brighter. I'm trying hard to follow that advice myself!

    Very nice start, its a good thing that you draw people in various ages as well, thats great training and good variety (i should do that more too).
    Nice Jesus too perhaps his face is just a bit too long, or maybe thats just me.
    You should try to push the values a little more, that would make it more dynamic. Great work and keep it comin!

    Some older drawings I did last year (and the year before).

    Just paperfilling, but I still like those.

    Three paintings I made and I also still like. (I made quite a few this and last year, forgot to draw during that time)

    Well, this is the last of the older stuff
    Next things will be new (in like made the day or so before posting) and will be more sketchbook like.

    No need to point out the flaws in my older drawings. I see lots of them. But I only posted them because I like the moods they are created in.

    A young girl drawn today.

    Edit:
    Took a better picture of it.

    But where are my manners. Thanks Hiffery, Lazy and Craven for your replies and tips!
    I think I need to use softer pencils to get better values. The problem is that I always seem to make everything getting 'muddy' if I use very soft pencils, because I cannot seem to keep my hands and arms from touching parts of the paper I already drawn on.
    Is there a tip on how to prevent that?

    Hi, you've got some nice works here, that third pic in the 6th post is looking nice. Your paintings below are also good, especially the first one. The third one I don't like right now, don't know if it is finished but I don't like the colours very much and the water needs more work.
    The last drawing is nice too.
    One thing I think you could improve is the lighting/contrast of the pictures you are posting, i don't know if they are scanned or photos but they probably could be edited in some image editing program so that they look less dark...
    Keep working and posting...
    Cheers

    Thanks. I have tried to edit my drawings with my paint shop. They are now on, but they still don't look like the originals. I must have a bad camera (or bad image editing skills or both)

    What program do you use?
    You just got to keep trying all the buttons and play a little with its editing capabilities. I know many of these programs are very limited, but you can probably get them better just with the brightness/contrast buttons!
    Good luck

    edit: also if you're using a camera, good lighting when your taking the photo is very important, try to make the photos during the day when there is good ambient ligth.
