Hey Wes! I'm liking your life paints, they are starting to look pretty darn solid! With speed paints, try playing around with overlay layers to give you some hue shifts. This should help you achieve a better feel of depth.
Anyway, great updates, awesome to see you post so much! (I need to increase my update speed too haha)
Cool sculpt! The life drawings are coming along nicely. The speed paints are cool too. They could use some edge refinement - I like unrefined edges but they need to be contrasted with some sharp edges to help the eye settle. Nice work - best of luck!
Hey Wes! That's a very nice sculpt, much better then the last one you did ! Your life drawing is getting much better too, though I think you need to push the value scale a little more (I'm not sure if the photo is averaging out some of the values - some of my life drawing don't turn out too well on camera).
In terms of painting, I think right now you need to do some longer studies from life or good photo as the ones from your mind are looking better.
shit, every time I turn around this stuffs better. Life paintings looking really good. I'd say from where you're at now, you probably need to start using bigger brushes, as the smaller messy marks make the form not read very well. Also saves some time. Car is sweet, though wheels are a bit messy. Heh, guess I'll just keep going with the crits. On your enviros, mess around with atmospheric perspective, i.e. stuff far away has less contrast, mid has a bit more, and close is very contrasty. Also, never use straight black. Black does not equal contrast, but screws your color harmony and values. Also mess around with saturation to create distance. But seriously, drawings looking pretty good.
