    i like the rhino one a lot. very nice color scheme. it shows that if your tonal value relationships are correct, you can tweak the colors around as you choose.

    i would suggest looking at a lot of black and white photographs and doing studies of eyes from them. right now, some of your drawings need to be tweaked so the eyes sit back in the skull's eye sockets. look at my pen and ink sketchbook (see link in my signature) for some ideas on getting started.

    Great faces in here. Really good, both drawings and paintings. Recognised the study after Linda Bergkvist, mainly from the color palette, which means you've done a great job on that. I hope you don't use color pick to pick colors from originals, that would be not good.
    About your question on creating the texture of the skin, I think texture brushes are what you need here. I once saw steps of a painting study after Bouguereau, which showed a really great use of texture brushes, achieving some really nice look of the skin. So just to say it's possible this way.

    cheers

    Oh my, 2 years since my last post in my sketchbook.... way too long.
    I had some time to work on my skills though I concentrated more on realistic illustrations for science books than on humans. In CA I try to get a place for creature design too. I am practicing for different animals like horses, reptiles, cows dinos and so on.

    At the moment I am in a working spree so I think there should be some new works in the next weeks.

    Ok, for now just a PS horse speedy. I am still not a pro with PS but it improved.^^

    Wonderful update, I really like the last image. The horse has a wonderful sense of movement and contrast but the front legs seem a bit broken. The head and neck are very nice but the rest of the body is a bit difficult to understand.

    Finally, my scanner is working again. But somehow I just cant get a good scan of a pencil drawing. Maybe its because the original is over A4 size...
    Dont know.

    Well here are 3 pages
