stinkypanda - haha its cool dude, its a LOT of stuff to go through! haha thanks for visiting though! I appreciate it!
some character design progress, and a sketch for the Kaiju COW...
creature look more promising !!! now it's more clear
i think u should enhace those inflated things in her neck (the one with veins) and made them more red (bloods inside)
and also make the fur on her back a bit longer
Your sketchbook is yummy, great style
I really like the dog from post #2712

hey guys! I haven't scanned in my sketchbook in AGES! this is only a fraction of them too... I do about half digital and half traditional, but im so lazy I never scan my sketchbook so , as much as I do post, there is really like another 50% that I never get around to showing, all these sketches like this...
hope you dig em!
I don't look no here for AGES, and I knew you would still be bashing it! Keep doing what your doing buddy!
To hell with circumstances; I create opportunities.

(its a small brush pack of my most often used brushes)
Those brushes are way too cool, thank you for not forgetting about me
and for taking the time to upload them, you are a true friend.
I think that your latest pieces are coming along nicely, you
are definitely one of the hardest working characters around
these neighborhoods. Keep on emitting that good vibe.
zou - thank you zou! I kind of liked the brush strokes in that one haha, I think its because I was burring my eyes, so when I blur them again and loo at it, it sort of comes back toether hha.

Hi Nicky! Cool sketchbook, 91 pages is a pretty crazy feat. Nice mileage.
Also I really love your emotiveness of your characters, like Zous Very cool.
Hrmmm I've got some tough critique/advice for you though.
91 pages is fantastic output-wise but I keep seeing a couple issues throughout your pages and they have to be dealt with in order for you to improve ( at least I think so ).
Just gonna go into it:
Okay so there is not tooooo much depth in your pieces. This just refers to your values and something about composition. What I've tended to notice is that you don't have a wide range of values in many of your pieces, theyre either on the lighter side OR the darker not both. Should push further for wider range of scale. Ah I'm not referring to your studies but your actual artpieces. To help with depth you could try to keep your lightest lights minimal to certain focal points and not spread across ( diffused lighting ). I also don't see very many hard shadows. This is what I see from you: https://alasmedia.wikispaces.com/fil...used_light.jpg I really like the values of the one in post #2701 though. Plus the colors are nice gradation to a certain focal point.
About your composition I noticed that many of your figures are upfront and VERY close to the viewer in the foreground, this tends to flatten the image in many cases if there isn't a big sense of depth behind that figure. Just try adjusting it and hopefully you'll see what I'm referring to. This is just something to keep in mind, I am struggling with this exact thing myself haha. Post #2719 is good though because it is at an interesting angle
Ummmm I think this is all I want to touch up on for now.
Keep up your working!
