Your character designs are great, they look like proper characters, although you could probably work some more on the anatomy. It seems I am echoing ChuanMing here, but he has good points. I'm especially impressed by the last unfinished sketch, it's a damn fine sketch!
zulu yeah, I'm gonna do a bunch of hand studies tomorrow, thanks##
TugelBend hahaha thanks dude
Tigermilk thanks for the advice dude, I totally get where you are coming from, I'm still trying to find a way of rendering that looks realistic without appearing washed out and stuff, cheers dude
jedininjaman thanks for all the tips dude, especially the bit about lighting, I tend to use dramatic lighting in my digital pieces but fall into the same cliches with traditional.
lilnebo lolol thanks nibras lol at the level ups haha. It has been what, 4 weeks? haha so there was time to improve, cheers and keep fighting
Ming basically dude, you just summed up the main things that bother me with my art haha, I'll get to work
PieMonster thanks dude
Mr D yeah I finally got photoshop back so colour studies and stuff can commence again. Just got all this coursework atm for school:/
jordy haha thanks man
Okay well, finished that last one, feet too small again=fail. I like rendered them and stuff, then noticed that they are too small, but didn't want to erase it and leave big indents and stuff. Next time:/
The girl in helmet came out very nice! I saw your comment on her feet. Maybe they seem too small, but because the fact that she's a girl you get a way with it a little. heh, imagine if the character was a man, it would have looked more strange then.
Anywyas, love the last one too, cool colors!
Dude, those last sketches are just tooooo good. I thought your pencil work before hand was amazing but you've just got even better! You rendering (i think that's the right terminology?) has improved loads, all your characters seem so much more life like with much more texture to their clothing and skin.
My favourite out of your recent work has to be the mechanic class character, her clothing is sweet!
haha SHIT belt. an awesome belt to have. xD
I see the pants and legs are still in progress, so I really won't say anything about that.
Just remember folding and tension in her pants where her left leg meets the crotch. pulling it off right will perfect the "sitting on the truckbed[?]" look.
Hey Miles. I've been lurking in your SB for quite some time now, i went through all of it, and I was just stunned by your never ending perseverance an willpower. U da man, and keep up the good work. My hardest problem is drawing regularly, and that slows down my progress to glacier movement. Just wanted to say keep up the good work man, your progress is insane, and quite visible with each passing month. Really diggin #1362.
Well after going through your SB I must say I'm amazed at your progress, man you're going like train there, it's a shame that I can't be more helpfull at the moment but still do what you do. The only thing I would advise is that maybe you should venture into animal realm a think that can only add to your arsenal of ideas.
a will that cannot bend"

I don't wanna sound annoying but I haven't really got time to work on this tomorrow, so I submitted it now. Which means I can't alter it now that its entered. So while I appriciate any suggestions, I won't really be making any more changes. I'm fairly happy with this, and have picked up a couple of new tricks, and learnt from some mistakes I made early on in the process of this painting.
