Awesome as always man Those scales looks so realistic, well done. Not sure what the creature on the left page is, but it totally seizes my attention, I'm looking forward to see it again soon

Two digital studies today. Speedies for me. Loved painting them, though I only like the results of the top parts of them. I guess I spent most time on detail in those areas...
-Apple is from life. Still looks flat though, but 15min was the deadline
-Bird is from ref. Tried getting the overall look there in just 20-25min. Didn't get time to put in the shadow of the beak. -you can vaguely see the outlining...
[Edit] put another 5mins or so on the birds head... won't touch it any more. Like it as it is, even though it ain't finished.
More to come soon

You did great progress in your digital works. I found interesting the Wolverine experiments. The last two digi are also good, In particular You captured the softness of the bird plumage.

~Dreamworker : Thanks mate, I tried to get that softness, but still got problems with the shades there...
~enthombed : Thank you, I'll do that.
~Kaoki : Cheers. I'm really trying to work with colours
And, speaking of colours. I am amazed on how many colours one can find if you actually care to look. Found a nice picture of a lion. Stared at it for a while, and then got started. I've already spent around 40min on it... mostly nailing down all the shapes and colours. -focusing on the head.
Just started with a few colours, and blending them.
Then using chalk, and a small brush-size, I start building up the shapes in greater detail with many colours. (Not finished this process yet!)
Still a WIP

Happy with the extra 40-50min I put in it.
Might go back to it later, who knows...

Hi Hive Mind,
You have very clean work, which is nice, but have you tried to be starting out messy and random? It's good to to experiment and see what can happen. It's something I noticed with the wolverine pic, he has such a smooth face for such a rugged, tough guy. Texture is a good idea too.
Are you remembering to flip the image as you work? There are a few things out of place on the lion, for example his left eye is too high. Using the liquify tool can fix that.
It does look very nice though, just needs a background.

~Peter Stapleton : Trust me. I have to start messy. Still struggling to hit lines on the first try, and I often, too often, don't know where I'm going in the beginning.
It's strange you should mention the subject about the roughness of the wolverine-pic. When I started on it, that is exactly what I had in mind. Then I started shaping the face and got all caught up on experimenting on the hair. -next step will have to be textures!
Busted... Don't flip enough, or at all. But I did notice the flaws myself when studying the ref some more. Might fix it up some time, though I'm not sure. Kinda feel like I got what I wanted out of the piece.
Thank you for popping by!!
~Rhett Harrison : Thanks allot! It means allot to me that others are noticing the slight progress of some of my work. I agree. Studies are great and rewarding!
Have spent the last few days at the cottage. Been drawing every day lately, -booya! But only one will be posted for now. Another study by ref. Such an interesting face. Spent AGES on getting the face and expression just right. Flipped the image here several times, and just couldn't understand why the nose looked so weird. -therefore I spent another 30min trying to fix that. But when I also flipped the ref, I saw that the nose was just as weird there. I believe his nose has been broken. . .
Struggled with the beard also, therefore its just mostly a blur. Other than that I'm pretty much happy with the result

Hi Hive-Mind, cheers for the kind comments. To answer your question the only thing to do is to look at references and expand your own knowledge in terms of clothing and weapons etc For the sketching i used used a simple round brush with pressure turned off, be very loose and more importantly DON'T be precious that way you'll never be disappointed and you'll create a lot more interesting work that way. I'm no pro but i hope this helps.

damn, you ref studies are really good. loving that bearded guy, everything looks very clean in here. yeah, flipping is important, do it often! the picture stays the same, it's just the brain that get's used to it and then fails to notice mistakes.
about the ref, there's no specific links, but on flickr and deviantart there's like millions of emo kids who take pictures of their eyes and lips good enough for quick studies i guess, although photos most often suck colorwise.
ah whatever. i'll be watching this book, keep it up man!
