Imaginational stuff, awesome seeing that. I'm doing more of that myself and it is starting to become a great fun. I must say the hand drawings look very good, a few lines and everything's there. Are the gestures refed? Those posted before the hands studies. Define the ribcage better, the back looks too straight. Oh hell, just read that someone has pointed this out for you. But that just proves I'm right, haha.
Beware of those ballerinas in the clouds! Though it looks good I must say, as if you painted her there on purpose. But watch out for that stuff when you don't wish it to be there.
hey callops dude sorry ii take so long to reply! you are going great man, i can see you learning and growing rapidly, your pencil technique is really well developed. id like to see you take some sketches further or maybe develop some in painter?
i think you know what to do to progress so all i can do is offer my support.
keep pushing dude you're gonna go far
razz hi matte, thx a lot for the support, yeah they are refered, i start like doing refered stuff then i go from head. and yes i was precisely thinking about that, i guess was luck on the ballerina, next time i need to watch out myself ^^;

The contrast really is low in the speedpaint. When working with values only it helped me to have a gradient from white to black, so that I could pick the value I need and use the whole scale, not just the middle greys. I guess that's a problem most of us have to deal with. It does make the painting look flat, so look out for that.
In the drawing proportions are a bit messy and his back looks too straight. The head looks nice by itself though.
Yo Call0ps, looking good dude! and about values.. while razz has an interesting point about using the whole range, you can also easily make realistic forms with limited range. The trick is to make sure all forms go through same value change.. well i am just repeating what's in loomis books actually.. hehe.. but yeah, the whole range does it a nice contrast but doesn't mean limited range can't do similar either. suppose I also use the whole range too..heh
and few things I notice is lack of shadows... that really adds so much more..
