    You have a nice start here, but the main thing that I would work on is your anatomy. Some of your proportions are off, for instance, in your first post the left eye seems to be moving around to the side of the head and in the last post the head and the leg seem way to big for the torso. Other than that, I think that you have some good line work going on, so keep up the good work and it will pay off. Hope to see more.

    I definitely have a trouble with the two Ps a lot: Proportion and Perspective. Something I hope that if I keep practicing I will overcome. Thank you for the critique, it is much appreciated.

    This is my progress on this image so far. I am ok with it but my digital painting is so so and I am little to reliant on the smudging tool IMHPO. I don't think its horrid but I know I need improvement. lol I most unhappy about the hair.

    For a while I have been working on a goddess series. This is my interpretation of Pele, a Hawaiian Goddess.

    This one I know has some proportion issues but it was a fun idea for me. Zombie mixed with Voodoo.

    Thank you. I hope this place and others will push me further and out of my comfort zones. The digital painting above is a bit different. I was going about it all different than I usually do so I am experimenting. CA is inspiring.

    I love ZOMBIES. heheeeee Creepy that they are.. I dunno I just like them. lol I think I like the Voodoo thing because of Roman Dirge's Lenore. That's one of the best characters ever. hehehe

    My avatar is me. I just did some digital painting and morphed me'self into a kitty.

    Your welcome. Zombies are cool XD
    This is mostly to the last to digital portrait paintings. I think they could use stronger contrast in values and a slightly warmer tone overall especially the faces, unless you were really trying to go with greenish skin intentionally. Also try not to use solid whites for eye whites, this can make them seem unnatural. The look of the lips have a nice feel to them.

    Yeah, I thought the skin a bit greenish. It wasn't the angle I was going for. I am still working with understanding the layering of colors.

    A problem I also face is being I have a LCD monitor and I don't own a MAC, I know the colors are going to probably come up different than I see them on a CRT monitor.

    I am an artist in progress but thanks for the tips on the eyes. My instinct is to use grays to work away from the stark solid white but I didn't pay attention and figured this out as an afterthought. I might be able to change it it. We shall see. hehe

    Another area to work on would be the flatness of your figures. Think of them as shapes and form them from dark to light. I hope that helps a bit. Btw, I think that your Hawaiian goddess is by far your strongest piece. it just needs more darks, I think.

    I think I understand. I know they are a little stiff. I have probably with putting characters in motion as I have serious issue with perspective and body foreshortinening. I really have to play with more. I hit a brick wall with these two concepts.

    I scrapped the last thing I was working. Just wasn't working for me. So, I did this instead....

    It's just an attempt at a different style.



    The idea of this piece came from a scene in Wonderful Days, a Korean Animated Film. I wanted to see if I could reproduce the position and lighting.

    What I like least about the picture is the lips. I just couldn't get them the way I wanted.
