    guitarjames - thanks, good idea. I'll work on stuff in small increments.

    The doodles will keep coming, just because i get a lot of time to do them in the car/at school. Life drawing class starts tues/thurs this week, so i'll have some life for you soon. For now here are some doodles, learning how to draw dragons (my fav animal). First page was from a book, others from my head. Started a new digipaint, 40 mins into it, i'll work more on it and feedback would be helpful as i go along.

    That last enviro is way better than the previous. My only advice: pay more attention to perspective, lay some construction lines first, at least to guide you loosely thru the painting. And a little more color variation, more greens for the grass and blues for the skies. Perhaps putting some photo you like (any kind will do:vacations, friends, texture, etc) in a color layer (try other modes too, like overlay) and lowering it's opacity a lot, will help. Oh, and a sharpen filter will really punch it (use it once you have the image in your final posting size).
    You're really gettin' the hang of it, just keep 'em coming.
    Cheers!

    I did a mega-quick paint over to show you what I meant about texture use. Hope you don't mind.
    This is done mostly pasting forest pics and home made textures, and playing with their opacity (used overlay, soft light and color modes), erasing areas that bothered me, etc. When I was finished, I applied sharpen 2 times, fading the second instance to about 10 percent. I hope it helps. If you need some sort of clarification, just let me know.
    See ya.

    fedezz x fedezz = ... fedezz²? - Thanks a ton! Your example helped me a lot, and i'll be sure to try some of that when next i sail with davy jones... i mean... when i paint again. So you're using other pictures and entire layers of random stuff as adjustments to hue/saturation and to give more texture by putting them on top? I had perspective lines when i started but i was kind've ignoring them towards the end >.> Anyway, thanks for all of your help, i look forward to my next painting

    spats - Thanks for the encouraging words

    Here's some loomis for james and bendragon, and some more noodling on her face.

    Lloomis looking good maybe just try using more long curvy lines than little short ones .

    Digital looking better but if your guna work on it more work the legs.

    Hey man

    thanx for pooping some props in my book mate - muchappreciated.

    fedezz has pretty much nailed it with that fantastic paintover. Check how he has incorporated blue and yellow into the existing green to give it punch and depth. Loomis was the second coming of Jesus, though somehow humatity missed it. TONS to be learnt from him.

    Great sketchbook, very promising and rapidly improving - keep at it dude!
    ciao!

    - d.

    james - thanks. i'll confess, those were kinda rushed, i'll give you some higher-quality lines next time

    demented - Thanks for dropping by! I agree - i really dig what he did with my painting. I wouldn't say quite Jesus, maybe the 2nd coming of Moses? Haha, thanks for the encouragement, i'll keep working hard.

    Got a new sketchboook that fits in the scanner!! And it's toned paper. Heres some figures for you, ala fishspawn. Mostly gestures because it was the first day of class, but the last one was 30 min.

    I think all my drilling on proportion has helped me a lot, i feel like i got closer without having to worry so much about it.

    looking nice .. i like the page with the orange on the best

    couple of crits ..just because there gestures dosnt mean you have to rush them and maybe instead of shading them in just block in the colour and do silhouettes .
    but yeh great quantity hope too see more .

    keep it up james.

    Good stuff man. Your improvement just over the last two months is great. The amount you draw puts me to shame. All I can say is keep it up!
