    Hi there, I like what I'm seeing. The way you handle perspective looks very confident. The vechicles are sweet, and the animals at the top, show us some more pencil drawings. You drew those in a bold way I like.

    The faces need work, mu suggestion is start at the bottom, work from the skull and up, the muscles that affect the mouth when you smile and look deppresed. It helped me and I think it will help you to.

    Hugs!

    Great work. I really like that self-portrait in post 3. Keep on with the gestural line. Produce some simple color pieces, still lifes and portraits.

    Your speedpaints are coming together, dude! The colors and values are really starting to harmonize. Keep at it!
    I had a chuckle at the caption in your last pic!

    I really like your pencil work... very nice. Have you done any work on toned paper?

    rough isn't automatically equal to bad or technically undeveloped.
    i think a rough drawing/painting can be much more interesting than an overpainted boring piece...it depends.

    the cat and the dogs for example are really nice. also like the new one, cheers

    Great paintings and great animal drawings - it looks like you are comfortable in both pencils as well as pixels. Some really impressive stuff here.

    I did notice one strange thing - for the latter entries, all of your male figures have very little or no hair at all...? The gals aren't bald (of course), but a whole lot of the guys are...maybe it's a theme or coincidence, but give us guys some hair too!

    The particles on the ground look really good. Also, good atmospheric perspective, and good job separating the planes on the rocks. What it needs, though, is a center of intrest to give are eyes something to do besides wander down the canyon.
    Good to have you back.

    These are very nice. You have quite a strong foundation. I would say colour is your least strongest point though. A lot of practice will help this area forward. Then we'll see from there!

    heres an update

    I tried cleaning it up a bit. Didnt add any big centre of interest though. Maybe ill add something. Maybe something human built.

    Your center of interest doesn't have to be big and impressive. You could just do something subtle, like but a bigger reflection on that foreground boulder to give it more contrast. Or, you could redo the boulder and make it a statue or have some other evidence of human design. Or, you could add a doorway or cave mouth on the side of the canyon and have some light flickering out of it. Infinite possibilities!
    The shimmering particles on the ground look damn good and give the piece a very lifelike sheen. You've gotten much better at lighting and color, I think.

    heres one with a centre of interest.

    Its meant to be the same enviroment. Further down the path.

    A little bit too much generic fantasy, but not that obvious...

    Try using a photoshop brush with pressure sensitive opacity, I find that it makes sketching in photoshop a lot easier and more flexible. I really like your pencil stuff, it has a lot of character.( im assuming you have a wacom)?

    cheers.
