    very nice start here! only thing i would crit right now is the use of values. your samurai (i guess it is, sorry, if i'm mistaken) shows a wider range of values than the other sketches and that really looks a lot better. more vivid, so to say. looking forward to see more from you! cheers,

    stine

    not bad! Maybe you should work more to change the pose and less to design armour, I know that is funny, but cannot make all characters in the same pose. try also to start drawing some environments, perspective is important too!

    Well my favourites of your works is the first and the second one. The first for the pose, and the second for the armour. Keep posting and... Italia! Italia! Italia! Ahahahaha

    Maybe next workshop it'll be in Italy, I hope to meet a lot of italians there (also if it's not sure that I could be back in Italy for it...also if I hope it)

    hey there, thanks for the nice words in my sb. portrait's looking good, proportions are fine and the mouth is great. the very distinct line at the left side of his nose is a little distracting, because it sort of "cuts off" the hidden features. but i see that you know the structure beneath the skin quite well and you took care of the main shadows. so: good work! keep them coming! cheers,
    stine

    Well done. The last guy has a very interesting face, really expressive, I like it! His right arm is a little strange, maybe a little short or too little, but you could fix it! Do you already think which paeltte of color could you use to make him a real character?

    Hey dreamworker, thanks for your suggestions in my sb.
    I`ve taken my time and studied your work. You`re quite comfertable with anatomy values and heads etc however in there lies the danger.

    If i may be so bold to suggest you whip out some much much more dimensional poses. the manga series "naruto" has some great stuff in it. I suggest you scetch those quick and often for a while. see how things stand in perspective etc. it`ll make your work much more professional

    hmz i couldnt find anything online that makes illustrates my point but have a look, you might understand what i mean? anyway, keep it up, i dig the ninja and dawn of war kind of stuff!

    lots of cool stuff going on here.
    The onew thing i noticed, with the portraits, is that they lack a certain badassness that your characters contain. I think its due to the rendering, its very soft.
    Try hatching, because it makes it much more realistic and cool.
    I say that the rougher the character, the rougher the shading, these are just a little "nice"
    just my 2 cents

    not bad... but it's a little flat. Imagine it like a miniature of metal (like that of warhammer for sample): you should increase the contrast of shadow and light. Also give to him a light source and then shot light and shadow like it would be water. Then... remember that metal of armour and weapon have rust, and signes of time and battle. The same for cloth. If you don't exagerate with it, it'll appear more realistic and tridimensional also if your intention is of a parade armour and not a battle one. My two cents!

    keep working!

    offended, why? ehehe no problem man, I like to recive suggestions, that help me to improve my skills
    In truth this is a wip illustration, and I paint only the base colors for the volumes. I sketch the enviroments in some paper, but I still not find the final concept. After I decide the background I paint the reflection of light and, above all, the color of this and finally I cast the propely shadows.
