WOah man great studies,I second what Evildisco sadi, the darks are improving a lot.The skully SP looks kinda cool, I didnt think you'd have bling on your lips though.Wish I could churn out stuff liek that. our composition skills are great too.
Take care bro and yeah waiting for soem digis.
Hey Dan. The SP is rockin. I wanted to have a little play with it if that was ok. If you don't want it up just say the word my friend. I hope you like, just added a bit of jake flavour. I hope I didn't kill it
Thank you very very much everyone. it's very late here so i cant reply properly.
Digis are coming this weekend..didnt have time to stay in front of the comp this week, lots of exams :/
Some sp's have huge ugly errors..but oh well, i'll get them away on the next sp.
honestly i´ve been waiting for these since days, and you amaze me , like how much you´ve grown since i took a look at your las tsketbook from a-z ( really nice helps from mentler hehe) a question though could you tell me maybe what kind of pencils do you usually use. do you use for the darks an extra one? and how long are you sitting on each portrait, for example drawing nr 3 of your last update.
Great stuff daniel! Its good that your doing more observation work, it will really help. You should try get yourself into some life drawing classes! Also with painting, if you finding it hard- do some monochrome observational work to start with. Main thing is keep working hard, good luck with your exams.
Goblinshark: hey ! Thanks! Actually i use just a normal mech. pencil for the first lines then start with a normal wooden hb. I mostly get impatient after an hour at doing a single pic, so i hardly ever spend more time on them. =)
Jabo: glad you like it =)
Spade: Thanks alot for the advice. I'm concentrating more on monochrome works now.
D: thanks alot man! Don't worry about the oc thing, we'll try again someday
Asgardian: hi ! The nickname kind of annoyed me after awhile and i decided to make another one...that's all =)
thanks, i'll try.
...Man, it's been awhile since my last post. I hate school, it's taking more and more time...
here's a color study i did a few days ago, an oc session i did with a friend (i did the two figures on the left) and some poop =)

uff, glad I'm done with school. Scho-ools out for SUMMA! Scho-ools out for EVA! Know that song? Alice Cooper, classic.
Great updates Daniel, lots of improvement! With the skin, try out some more saturated and darker colours. In the self portrait thread, davi (1st) and Dutton's works are great to study for this. the only other thing (dunno if it has been mentioned) work with as big brushes possible. rather put value down with a big brush and take it away with another big brush than do it with a smaller brush. you should check out zhuzhu's 50 heads wpe's - helped me a lot in that regard!
Other than there is nothing for me to crit here really - awesome work man, keep posting!
Whoa great stuff you got here.
Your pencil studies are simply amazing, i love them, they are so soft and lush.
Only crit is that here are to many heads, need more full body shots, good for the anatomy training.
Keep it coming.
