    i really like the first airbrush attempts you posted, with the jagged edges. also maybe it's just me but you could always change the contrast for the first image (the skull) making some parts much darker and leaving some parts lighter?

    hmm, yeah, but i did those paintings on bristol board with thinned india ink non-waterproof.
    i'm working on another one that has white ink, but it's turning out with a strange blue-ish tint, dunno if there is a way to prevent that.

    Good values, especially the first one with the leather jacket. But remember to keep anatomy and proportions in mind as well!

    had the chance to try the demo of painter 10, gotta say i like it. it's much more flexible than photoshop.

    if anyone has any helpful tips for painter, please share.

    warlock and sorcerer sketches. they are incomplete, but i did not feel finishing them, the way they appear is relevant enough that they seem to be that sort of character.
    stay tuned, crits please.

    hey man, its that dude from the sketcher, good sketchbook here, you are pulling through and finishing most of the stuff too, keep that up!!

    something you might want to focus on is facial proportions, mainly how big features are in relation to eachother. Try to look at a lot of photos, and just stare at them for a while and look for any information you can find, how far is the distance between the nose and the end of the lip? how wide is the nose? and so forth and so forth. after a while you will get an understanding of what looks wrong in a face. you probobly wont know how to make it look right, but at least you will know what the problem is, and thats a start!

    new stuff, been messing with painter x and trying to learn it fast.
    it's definitley more versatile than photoshop and allows more painting tools and options. i like it.

    here's some WIPS.
    crits please.

    drawings from pictures, one of my favorites is from a photo that had this pet handler from Nigeria. the handler had a pet hyena. i think it's pretty badass to own a hyena. pretty dangerous, but cool. even the handler has scars from dealing with such a vicious beast.
