    Very nice. I think her neck is a bit long though, but very nice use of texture and shading. The creature thing that she is riding on is a bit random, but it looks good nonetheless. The characters are very nicely drawn and proportioned, and I like the styling to them.

    Very nice website, love your work. Keep it coming.

    The only thing other then that I can say is work on your facial expressions a little bit, most of the ones on your site don't quite express feelings very apropos for their actions. This is only on your human characters mainly.

    Thanks!

    Hello xero,

    Thank you for the comments and visiting the website. I am working hard on improving human expressions actually, I know this and I'm trying different things. Most of them are not things I want to showcase right now though but I've reached some good success so some of it will soon make its way into my finished work, hopefully!!!

    Here is one I made recently which does show some expression

    Thanks for the comments again!

    Here is another drawing I completed just this last weekend.

    Smoke Break

    My sketches and digital experiments

    This is a remake of a sketch I made in 2004 in about 20 mins which I always liked but had recently started bothering me and wanted to improve on. You can see the old sketch at the following link:

    Once again, thanks for all the comments. This community is huge, I post something and it just scrolls out of view

    I took the liberty to paint over one of Darkchild's pencil sketches, it took about 3 hours in photoshop + my uber-l337-tablet.

    That last piece is amazing. Your pencil stuff is also excellent. The figures though, seemed to be a little stiff. It kinda seems like the guy having the smoke should be a little more relaxed. I think it might just be the relationship between the character and the background, maybe darker shadows on the wall where his back is and the same with the ground and his leg.

    This is super quick, but just to give you an idea of what i'm saying:

    Amazing work none-the-less, keep it up.

    Very good work, but indeed, you need to work on your poses and anatomy. The smoking guy's ellbow is twisted too much. The right knee seems to make a strange twist to (a bit hart to tell) - the twist shoud start in the upper leg. Hope you learn from this and make some even more amazing stuff int he future.

    Hey,
    Thanks for the comments on the anatomy and esp on the shadows, I might paint over the smoker, I always had that in mind but there is so much to do!!! Anyways, I don't want to work on that right now, still trying to clean up some things with the website, after that I'll be 100% happy with it and I can dedicate more mental power to drawing, painting and finally showcasing some 3D work.

    Some new sketches and one of two paintings I'm working on

    Here is a sketch I made the other day. I'm starting to think about the Blizzard art challenge, check out their main website if you haven't heard.

    My sketches and digital experiments

    I also made another quick sketch last weekend with the intention of painting it. No refs were used so let me know if something's screwed up.
