    So... Tasapaino.
    One problem with your drawings is the lack of form. They are all very flat. While, sure, it can be used as a stylistic decision and works for some of these, especially the stuff with more detail seems to suffer. The wizard is already quite hard to read as there is so little information about the shape and the 3d placement of features.

    Thanks for crits. All my art seems to turn to 2D :/. I'll try to improve that. Other problem is painting textures.

    Hiya Tasapaino. Welcome to CA I guess!

    Nice work on the anatomy studies, more of that! You said you're still looking for your style; I feel that it's not something you should try to get to forcefully, instead let it build up as your work improves. So worry about getting proportions right and getting your lines more confident instead of trying to figure out whether the final product will have a super-distinctive style. However this is just my view and you're welcome to do as you please

    Anyway, nice stuff. Keep posting!

    I'm back again, tho i'm sure that you haven't missed me.

    Well, remember these boards again that i have get some inspiration to draw. Now i try to update this thread regularly. Here is some artwork i have made after last update (it has been a while.)

    In that The One Ring picture i used snapshot referance from Fellowship of the Ring movie. Those guitar pictures are paint over original picture. For dagger i didn't use referances and it's my own desing.

    More to come later, i can post referance pictures if you are interested.

    Keep on working on those anatomy studies, they pay off later(I'm still trying to get there myself ) Those reference pics are really nice too.

    hello,
    you have an interesting variety here.
    my advice would be to also keep an eye on traditional media studies, they say you should never drop pencils and paper.
    anyway, keep doing this, time will show you progress.

    You seem to be doing alot of exploring and thats a good thing , but I think you should be spending more time on your reference studies, you would get more out of a really focused 2-3 hour study than a cursory 15min painting.

    In the guitar pictures you painted directly over a photograph?

    Thanks for comments, both of you. Yeah i should use some more traditional methods. This time some ballpoint pen/drawing ink anatomy studies, more coming later.

    @ Aveh, yeah i painted directly over photos. That portait were greyscale, so i put it in colors and enlarge both photos about 200% before began to paint over. I know this method isn't learning me a lot, but it was fun.

    looks like things are coming along with your studies. Your rendering ability looks really strong.

    On the figure, pay attention to the trapezius muscle and see how the trapezius muscles taper down from the neck like a triangle.to the shuoulders.
    I also suggest sketching some figures using cubes and cylinders to get a feel for the dimension of the figures.

    Try to push your anatomy studies further. It looks like you have a strong observational eye. Just push yourself into building characters up from 3d shapes as wel (boxes, spheres, cylinders)l. When you combine the two methods, its dynamite
