Your lines are such an eyegasm, really, amazing improvement dude, I'm so happy/proud of you
Thanks always ChisLu. We surely have a long journey ahead^^. hope to grow even more with you and our friends here =).
So, here are more animal studies i've been doing. Still a lot to improve, specially in the presentation department...
Your Deer is here ChisLu =)
I've been playing around with SAI these days, hope to post the new line stuff i did with it fairly soon, if the site doesn't get messy again xD.

Hey guys! Here are my scribbles with SAI... some observation stuff and some character design.
And for last, some mech silhouettes i've been playing around (in photoshop), also, the line sketches are supposed to correct some design decisions roughlymade in the previous stage.
Wow! You've shown a lot of improvement since you first made this thread! It's an inspiration.
Keep up the hard work!
Heey everyone! Back to painting here... Tryin out some vertical compositions... Kinda hard, so i did it in a very simple way...
Here are some more enviros that i'm willing to finish ^^.

Oh yeah, everytime i try to do something fast, i end up with some really crap stuff... =/ I also thought about not posting it here, but hey, this is a sketchbook, so no worries huh?
This is such an amazing sketchbook! I love both your environmental and figure designs -- including the sketching processes!
Can't wait to see more!
I'll be here with the Daggers for the rest of my art journey.
Keep pushing people, let us be great together-!
man your work is stunning....the use of color blows my mind, and those are the best thumbs ive ever seen period.... love the sketchbook style stuff as well great lineweight.
Thanks Everybody, nice to have some nice feedback from you.
So, back here. This time we have a relatively quick master study from the awesome Edmund Leighton and some creature/character sketches that i'm willing to (hopefully) finish someday...

I was blown away by the environment and character design. I don't know how to paint but I think you can improve your colors though, some pieces looked like the tv's color was turned down by several notches but still their freaking sweet (again your way better than me but I honestly think that you need to work on your color selection I guess?)!
Hey everyboby! Some updates here!
Some random sketches, trying to define my workflow, using various techniques to come with quick results, these were dome in about 30 miinutes each (yeah, for me this means "quick" Y_Y)
10 minutes enviro Thumb...
Characters and creatures poses. This type of sketch is being my major activity these days, knowing that i'm lacking character design, thought i would be good to stick with it for a while...
And here is the result of these studies and some more 40 poses that i did just to come up with the 2 bests.... Y_Y

You've got some nice work here , and you're on the right track with your Loomis studies + digital studies. I really like that last environment painting you did keep up the hard work!
art is never finished, only abandoned~Leonardo da Vinci
Thanks Ezekrialase, i'll try my best to keep going and hopefully get better. Also, finish the loomis stuff i have here^^.
So, i tried to make some poses directly from the reference because it would help me to get the feel to invent my own poses, the ones from imagination are marked as "changed" on the top. Also, the last one i turned into a painting.

Here are some enviro thumbs and a master study i did very loosely.
Trying to find a balance between different levels of polish, i think my stuff is with too much detail =/ so i poorly did this guy here.

Hey everybody, sorry for the lack of updates, but the site was all screwed up here. =/
Here is another painting based on those thumbs i did on the previous post. Yeah, my stairs looks terrible =/. I think i'm becoming better for characters now, my enviros are so weird the days...
Here are some thumbs i did trying to find a more dynamic composition. The third one became the dragon painting (just because i had to paint a dragon). I'm also planning to finish some other thumbs that i liked.
This is a really fast sketch just trying to show a little bit of my process for linework, sorry about the hand, lol.
And a quick master study from the awesome Jean Leon Gerome.

Really love that woman--she has sexy armor, but it isn't ridiculous, and would keep her safe. Love all the armor stuff you do, period. Keep the improvement up, dude, cuz you definitely have improved!
