Decided to finally post here after lurking for some years. :)
Planing to be posting my sketches and stuff here and hopefully
getting better with each post.
Here is my first post.
Whoa, I really like your Minotaur, looks very great. I'm not better than you, but I think I still can give a few tips: The hand in the background has more contrast than the one in the foreground and both legs do have almost the same value contrast. Try to decrease contrast in the further behind limbs/body parts, because that gives a sense of depth. I would recommend watching FZD school's concept art videos on youtube, they're great!
Todays mech practice
hey man good start, i like your ideas and that you work in lots of different things, so far i got nothing to crit but if you put out more stuff i might pick up something i can tell you :) either way you must always be your own worst critic, always know when and where you fucked up and figure out why, and if possible Fix it, cant wait to see more stuff!
keep it up!
Welcome to cA , you have a really good start here - you obviously have skill. Keeping my eye on this sb :)
FatMoStank: Thx, Like your Sb too :D
lionheartGFX: Thx man, always feel free to crit :)
Here is a mowgli sketch
Mech in an environment.
This weeks Chow "The Old Swamp Hermit"
Nice start to a SB Lionsketch. I especially like the Mowgli piece, really nice simple use of brushstrokes to suggest form.
Great stuff so far, man! The only crits I have are to watch your perspective in certain pieces (the trees in your mech piece are throwing me off a bit) and bump up your contrast in your values a bit more than you have now. Great stuff, keep going!
Neat start so far, especially the mowgli painting and the squid guy look great. Have you hought about pushing them further?
Regarding the skeleton king one , I'd say to push the contrast a bit by decreasing the saturation of the colours of the lower part of the painting but
also increasing the reds of his cloak where the light hits the material. Also I'd be more generious with the turqiouse reflections overall.
But for now, keep up this good work!
Jordan_: Thx, that was pretty much what i was trying to practice there. Learned alot on it. :)
MrFrenik: Thx. Ya i definetly agree, iam still trying to get a better grip on the perspective.
Ruschkala: Thanks man. Iam trying to get better and getting in more detail in almost all of my drawings, but my focus right now is on getting better on environments and perspective.
I agree the skeleton king´s colour is a little wierd, i kinda feel hes crown is almost floating infront of hes head when i think about it :D
Here is some houses practice and a E.O.W Wip. :)
Thanks for the nice comments.
Here is a material study for this weeks Chow.
learnd more then i thought i was going too. :)

Dude sweet updates, i think you killed that "The Old Swamp Hermit" keep it up.
lionheartGFX: Thx! :) i am planing to do some more dynamic poses practice so i can change up some of my more normal static poses.
