as i told you on msn i don't like how you handles her left arm, but apart from that its ok.Digital frame+ink looks a bit rushed too.
show us more damn it, more!
He great updates!
at post #230 in the second picture her right food is pinfully twisted.
I like the third one, her eyes are a little to big I think, but the expression of this picture is vers nice!
Thanks guys for your comments! This morning I did this quick sketch with HB pencil in about 10 minutes, for some practice with poses
I try a little experiment with colors in the lowres version of the last girl portrait ( try to use color layer and the esclusion layer to fit some shadows ) in substance a simple overpaint
Heya Dreamworker. Those are some pretty decent updates.
About the last one. Nice pose and everything. Crit: the arm comming up, the lower outline
should, I think, not bend inward but curve outward. Too the other sleeve feels so ballonious that it seems her arm is swelling up under some kind of course. If you´d add a deep shadow from the line down where her arm should be this would most possibly correct this perception w/out redrawing.
Hope that helps and that your friend like this picture very much. Keep it up. See y´round.
hey dreamworker thanks for your post in my sb!
i am impressed about your clean and decent linework nad i love your medievil stuff! keep on it.
on painting... it would be good if you do some oil studies or other colord (analog) stuff.
i'll keep an eye on this i hope you look in my sb over again.
@Bbwolf: thanks for your suggestion, I'll try what did you say.
@Haxxxor: yes I must try to use some traditional media. Infact I decided to learning to use the colored pencils and I buy the Faber Castel polychromos for this . I search some good book that explain me the technique but I don't find anymore.
Somone can help me?
I'm take a break from my studies and I try to use my new colored pencils. I used 3 colors blue, red and yellow after a quick passage with the red pastel in a normal sketching paper ( not so good for this type of tools I think ), I obtain this result

hehehe nice experiment, and most of all nice to see something different from you
pose i quite nice, like in post 243, but i still think you need to experiment and draw more.Try gesture drawing, or studying from loomis/hogart...it helps, and you know it
ehehe Gnoll thanks for remember me this Masters. Ok I forced me to return to the basics ( when I talk in msn with Gnoll I try to sketch somethings ) and for now without ref book
nice job on that experiment. do some more of them. you will get used to them and improve big time's.
Figures in combat much fun. I saw your animation in the front page and saw a new plain on the face I ignored, thanks! Your tones are getting much smoother.
Make a sketchbook happy, feed it a tip to improve!
Thanks guys for yours comments
@oma: I think to do more experiments with polychromos, but I hope to found some good manual to learn some basics of this technique.
@kischi: thanks mate
@Pigeonkill: thanks for posting in my SB! I happy to read that I did some helpful works

Yeah those dynamic figure sketches are a great thing. I´d like to see (and do myself) more of them.
The experiment with th ecolor pencils looks a bit ... hmm ... patchworky. Dunno how this comes.
But as Gnoll said, good on ya fer experimenting. c ya ´round.
Thanks bbwolf for your support.
Update form this sketching days
Verfy good going. That´s a nice set of creatures and heads. I especially like the giant comming through the ground.
On a second look...is this a Giantess? I mean thats some serious ...uh ... mass on the chest. And is the guy right to her(?)
a Klingon? Looks like Worf. I am curious about part 2 allready.

I did some studies of color mixtures with colored pencilis and one attempt to make an alien portrait with this tools
Not bad! Italian knight! Coloured pictures are great! With nice colours I love.
Especialy red armoured man. Anatomy is ok. But asian man's face ... ? hehe dont worry I believe you can draw real samurai and real asian face.
Thanks a lot for your visit Legionare
eheheh you are right, but I have some difficulties to found good reference photos of asian faces, if you has some good photo-portraits of asian guys can you link or send me for some good studies?Originally Posted by legionare
Great updates mate! You`re doing some very interesting concepts: that guy in post #243 -very cool sketch. Also I like medieval girl in post #244 and page with a creatures in post #256. Great to see you`re doing a lot of gestures with those manikins - very important practice, I still fight with them too. And colour study in the last update are very nince. Keep up the good work!
Thanks a lot for your support Ulver, I'm happy to read your words
good to see you experimenting with different mediums I would offer some advice on the color pencils but I never used it, even though I brought a 60 prismacolor set over 20 years ago which I still have but never use it once But pastel I recently experimented with and can offer some noobish advice, the support used can make a big difference on how it will come out. Pastels need a support with some tooth to put a few layers of colors, sketch paper is too smooth. There are supports specifically made for pastel of which I prefer Wallis Sanded Paper or Art Spectrum Colorfix paper, but decent charcoal paper will work too.
Ciao dream, really nice progress here. Especially with the fantasy pieces..The concepts in post #256, the guy with half a body is great. As well, the black corsair character reminds me of Captain Harlock, which is not a bad thing, its great! Keep up the studies and different mediums, the gestures are good practice! Ciao.
Thanks for stopping in my SB Sirio
Thanks also to you Oldnoobie for your suggestions
In this day I'm work on a bard for one online magazine. From now I make this sketch
