Thanks Quinn. Hey your right! I didnt noticed that his bicep was wrong, I was pretty stoned. Ye metal is pretty hard, never done any studies but I will just keep trying making better robot, with better shading.
I do feel im improving in PS. Glad you liked it.
Thanks Gosu, you really right on the geometric space issue. Thats my biggest problem. I will keep on drawing till I die!
Here is one to prove Im still on it! 20 min sketchy
it's good that you're getting into environment design, but I think doing some studies of landscapes before inventing might speed your progress. Doing some long studies will help build your mental library, so you don't have to stop and try to figure things out so much while inventing.
I'm not sure if you've seen the peer project, but I think some of these exercises will help you with your values and colors
It's just a nickname, still too far from being one...

Hey man, I stop by to return the favor for your comments. You got some very good designs and shape in your SB. After going to what has been said, can't really add anything new but to reinforce that doing studies are a great help, especially the loooooong ones as Texahol said. Indeed, speed is a good factor to master, but quality is very important as well. Spending those extra hours on the same study will become very rewarding in the future. Only when you get a good grasp and knowledge of what you want to paint and how to do it, then would be a good time in practicing speed. So keep it up, and looking forward to some studies
Thanks Texahol and Maestro Andres! Its treu long studies which take a lot of practise are always the ones you learn from the most. Cause you get the most problems in complex drawings. That why I did that robot ( which is still in progress). But those fast sketches I make, are actually harder for me than detailed drawings I did earlier in my SB. Thats why Im practising it.
Cause if you just photshop very long on it the strength and also maybe a bit skill goes away, even if it looks cleaner. You kinda know what I mean?
I think its mostly just about drawing drawing drawing.
But enough about the tips, plz tell me bit bout the drawings itself
Hi, I'll try to comment the drawing .
Cool character, but it would be cool if we can see more of him. You can also work out the background a little more. Like he is wandering in a misty forest when the sun comes up ready for a warm day ^^.
Last thing, try to use some textures in your paintings.
But overall it's a very nice scene I think, so I would like to see more of it
quick comment on the robot pic further up the page. don't forget about the reflections and light sources in the metal! studies will help loads. looks great so far and make sure to keep posting thos WIPs!
