I agree with Krato, his arm muscle looks odd too, and he seems to be almost hovering above the ground, give him some wait maybe adjust his pose a bit.
Hell yeah you're back. On the character you could put some kind of texture on his torso to help show what kind of material it's made of.
Using airbrush to smooth out the portrait a little bit wouldn't hurt i think.
Also, painting yourself naked = win.
Very nice studies dude. However you still need to translate it into your concept stuff. The demon soldier guy is a bit stiff in pose and the armor is also flat. Design the big shapes first and think gesturally for the beginning stages of the design. And also keepan eye on silhouette, the guy's horns follows his shoulders too much and doesn't break up their shapes so it looks quite regular.
Love the fluid lines you have, but Bendragon is right I think.
Nice detail on that girl's arse, though.
I agree with Krato. There is nothing wrong with having a bunch of WIP at one time, it can speed up production, however if you never really finish them in the past then you're not more likely to start now.
Why not stop, slow down, and work on one piece until it's done? Until you get used to the idea of finishing things. Then try getting back into doing more than one WIP.
Glad to see that someone's been busy since I last visited their sketchbook! Excellent job on those studies! Nice to see a traditional sketch peeking through in there as well as the digis.
I would agree with the others suggesting that you finish something, but that would be hypocritical on my part!
Nonetheless keep up the great work!

well I don't want to steer on what already has been said here but if you go back 5 or 10 pages I left you a comment about what the others guys already wrote here, your stuff is improving tons though you sure on the right way, you just need few kicks in tha butt
OH MY GOODNESS! You have gotten like a kabillion times better since the last time I saw your book 4-6 months ago or something! I went to your sketchbook expecting "bong" and it was all "POW! BANG! BOOM!" F***ing....HISSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSssssss
Off with this MF*** dudes F*** head. He has clearly made a deal with the devil.
HE'S A WITCH!
Ok seriously now, I remember you scolding me hard for having my own fun time by attending a lan party instead of painting FOR ONE DAY, after working my ass off at my fathers farm. It is ok to have some free time and nothing wrong in slacking ever once in a while, but seriously, your last update is months away now... Makes me quite sad, you have a lot of talent and skill, use it!!!!
Ah, its a shame. i wont have any dumb "o yeah, im so sorry"-talk in this post. i am thankful mark brought me back, i hope it wont be too hard to get back to my daily routine.....
some sketches, doodles and stuff, mostly thougtless. im not too proud of these pics....
rushlord: thanks. although there could have been like 1000000 times more improvement if id done more.....
its hard to get back do digipainting.
which medium would you recommend for traditional painting (considering i have never done something like this before.....)?
