Here are some pics, feel free to comment. I have only recently started using watercolour, I am pleased with my current results. Be aware that I am aware of the fact that my people are all standing strait.
This is my first watercolour attempt-
This one isn't quite finished, I'm going to put more hilights/shading onto the skin-
My third watercolour attempt, I am quite partial to this one, I outlined it with ink-
This is another watercolour picture, I like his hood thing-
These 2 are yet to be painted-

Hi again, here are some pictures I made on Paintshop Pro 8. They are my first go's at a PP8 image, so they're not perfect!
This is called Aurora-
This next one is called Aurora Warp, as I used a warp brush to make it look better.
Remember, CRITIQUES WANTED!
Here's another PP8 image, it's called, quite uninspiringly, Water.
The top half used the emboss brush, the bottom half used the hue changer brush, I changed the hue more around the actual droplets. I gonna start painting one of those unpainted ones today. Also, I've started a creature thing, and I have a mutant thing ready for scanning later!
Right, I've painted the guy with the spray paint and gas mask. I've drawn a two-headed giant, which I'm going to paint. I've started a page of aliens, they're all from the same planet. I will paint the guy with the shield and club, maybe later. Also, I'll do some more things on PP8.
Here are some more PP8 images, the first is called confusion and the second is called confusion warp-
hi ben its me
some of these seem familiar for some reason lol
maybe you could try and resize the scans on paint shop so that theyre easier to see
the digital images are quite surreal but i like them 'water' is prob. my favorite
as i said you could try and edit some of the paintings on PsP
as you know, i like them and im glad to see how much youve improved.
ill see you some time after your holiday
hope you keep drawing
Because of the original size I can't get PP8 to shrink it, so this next batch are still big. The first is the colour version of the one with the gas mask. The second is a mutant, the third is a sheet of aliens.
This one has a native creature, a living gun and a spawn mother-
I've been on holiday the last two weeks so there's a lot of new stuff to come!
remember- CRITIQUES NEEDED!
here is lightning-
personally i think that you should concentrate on your drawing and watercolor but thats only my opinion
try and use more variations in colour on your people i think it would look more effective, but again, thats only me
you could also use references to get some poses or something
i think theres a reference thread round here somewhere
post more soon
i think ill be seeing u next weekend so we shoudl be able to have another creative blitz
Big update coming soon!

i like these new set more, obviously you're a lot better when you
Thanks (C)! I totally agree with that, I will start looking for an anatomy book next weekend!
I've just remembered that I did a watercolour a while ago, it is based on Sabriel from the book Sabriel by Garth Nix. I'll post it sometime
Hi there! I've coloured the 'Third Tree' in PSP8!
here it is-
I will probably add some highlights to it soon!pld:
this is my entry for a DSG-
I am colouring in my orc warrior on Paint Shop!
I totaly agree with (c). Anatomy should be your main study. It seems like you have good ideas that dont really come out as good on paper. I like all tha robot and gasmask stuff, (thats always a good thing by the way)but you should really study anatomy, positions, weight n so on. So keep drawin and start on them studies! Cheers!
I am going to start looking at anatomy, i just need to get a book on the subject!
I am currently doing concept art for a thing listed in the unpayed jobs section, I have a load of stuff to post sometime, BYE!
okok forget 'getting' an anatomy book. For now I would suggest taking a look at some classic artists, just go to boarders or better yet online and draw what you see. Of coarse this should only be done as you begin, it's never good to develop out of someone elses work. But it will teach you variations.
I think taking your work to the basics would help you, your trying to run before you learned to crawl. Sorry if that sounds harsh, but it just what I see.
I know what you mean, I should do some basic studies of the human form.
Big update coming later!
HERE WE GO-
a floating city-
ganon from the zelda games-
link from zelda and a boss i invented-
An EOW I didn't have time to enter (ruined shipyard)-
a made up zelda enemy-
a sky dock-
an airship and a crew member-

I'm working on concept art for a game, the project is called Project: SEED, for a new RPG.
here are my current works-
Anatomy is key. Always keep sketching, but you've got to get your mind right first; read, observe, absorb everything you can. Once you have basic anatomy principles down, the rest will be cake, and you can start to take more liberties.
I recently tried to copy a photo of my self but the wrinkles were so dark they made me look old, so I used that idea, I am really proud of the result, pic coming soon!
good to see some new stuff, i like the shading style and i think you're getting better at drawing people, although remember to be careful with proportions
lookin forward to the new pic sounds interesting
