    hey monkey,
    Thanks for dropping by
    lots of hard work here, push on with the anatomy studies, and find a good book. I recommned Andrew Loomis, but you will have to track down a digital pdf of his books as they're out of print...but use reference.
    Also work on you tones, its a goodf idea to number your tones from 1-5 or something, and only use those tones in a drawing...just try it. It helps achieve form. Then gradient the tones into one another....

    But keep up the hard output!

    -Thanks guys

    Well its been a loooooong time since i posted here, and unfortunately I've haven't improved an awful lot. Been quite busy with other things but meh, excuses, truth is I just haven't put the effort in. But now school and everything is over, from now I'll just try my best to make it my main priority .
    So heres some recent-ish things:

    So I'm at Uni/Art School now and I'm going to be working on my drawings and things more than ever, so I should be able to update here much more often. But there hasn't been any work related stuff really so far, so for now heres some older things I did with a few life drawings.

    You're studies are good. You can see how quick improvement can be within them. Something to think about when you draw from your head, besides anatomy, is the feesibility of the pose. Think about if it's comfortable or easy to do(assuming you're not always going to be drawing contortionists hehe). Try to do the poses yourself, or maybe have a friend try to do them. This can help you keep your poses interesting and real.

    Wow, massive improvement from the first page!

    You're doing great, i'd say keep up with the life drawing and anatomy studies. On your digital stuff, you need to try and use harder brushes at 100% opacity. You're getting a very flat and expressionless look to your photoshop work, that will get better with practice.

    Keep it up, you're doing great!

    Thanks a lot guys, appreciate it. Hopefully these new images show some improvement on some of the issues you brought up.

    Though my personal work is becoming a lot more design-orientated when it comes to games, the last project was focused more around developing concept art, so I thought I'd share some of the images here, along with one or two other drawings.

    To go with the themes in the game idea, I tested myself by trying out various painting styles and using appropriate limited colour palettes.

    Thank you Ambient Sounds

    Here's a promo pic I did for an upcoming flash game that I am making, just to get an idea of the overall look and feel of the game. It's a point & click game inspired by film noir and 40s/50s crime novels with an interesting way of handling fractured narrative in games. More to come.

    Looong time since I posted here. Unfortunately a lot of my drawing has took quite a hiatus since then due to other work, but as I'm wanting to improve on my skills I thought I'd try get myself posting here again, so we'll see how it goes!

    First is just a small selection of things I've done in the past few months...

    Too bad you didn't update that frequently, I would've loved to see more of your learning process.

    One tip for your digital work tho, try to work with the largest brush and then gradually go smaller if you feel that you cant add much more. It helps to clean up the painting and to get rid of any "muddiness" right from the start. Other than that you're doing great, keep it up!
