When you produce black and white characters, they are eyecandy, when you do them in colour some thing are plainly wrong side of the boat.
Too evenly saturation, too high saturation and definitely too saturated backrounds, toning backrounds down would be first place to start getting that cool effect you are having in black and white characters.

awesome update broski! -love the characters! and that tiger ptinting is a fuckin B E A S T! -but i think that guy with the bow and arrow in the bg is about to make a bad mistake. he should be offering him cat nip.
whats up Even man what an update! everythings getting solid.
Your colors are getting alot more natural aswell must be from all those studies
Keep up the hard work inspiring sketchbook as always
have a good one
sketchbook updated October 6th
Awesome work, as always!
Wow, major improvements here. You are getting too good. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE do the daily updates.
My only tiny crit is that maybe you should use some softer edges in places. I mostly notice it in the last painting there (one with the red lanterns), in which a lot of the things look pasted on almost, and how close or far various objects appear is kind of confusing.
Also, you are moving to Quebec? Whereabouts? Montreal?

Bahahaha, the guy in the tiger painting looks like hes about to crap himself. XD
You updated! I am sooo happy right now!
Wow, these are really great! The one with the were-tiger thing is stunning. The only critique I would have is the foreground character seems a little stiff. If his knees were bent a little, it would convey a greater sense of emergency, I think.
Otherwise, excellent job. The guy with the shotgun is fabulous as well.
Wow, big update! I really like the studies. I also like the value version of that ichigo (mask) looking character.
The piece with the tiger is crazy! But, I think the expressions and body language of the characters doesn't really suit the action. If some huge tiger monster were going to kick my ass, I wouldn't be standing so still.
Oh crap, that tiger-warrior piece is fucking awesome. The colour, the values, the detailes. It's a big sketchbook, so I'll hang around, to check it all. All I can say, is that you've made one hell of an improvement, man.
Kind of a small update today, since I have been working on some freelance stuff, that I cannot tell you the name of, but I was thinking of asking my AD if I could post the sketches and WIPs on here, since they seem to be kinda easy with the whole NDA thing. Might even make a livestream, to supplement Dave's always awesome CROMSON DAGGERS!!
So yeah, that is what is new, and until next time
Ohhh, your new paints are quite lovely. Can't wait to see how the studies translate! Or uhm...are they studies? You do realism very well. And now I suspect these are brain matter!
Wowwee. If so, careful with the bases for your skin tones. Good job on using desaturated colors, but I think (esp with your white characters) their skin tends to look dull.
Thanks for swinging by my sketch book! man, you have some impressive stuff on display here. Really inspiring
