damn dude. serious improvments since the last time i was here. i was gonna write you some crap here about not getting down on your art but there are a lot of great comments from people already. i go through it ALL the time and so does probably everyone. just struggle through it and come out stronger.
Really nice work, really like that book commission work
holy shit man, great stuff, i just went through your whole sketchbook in one go haha
gota love your dedication!
To hell with circumstances; I create opportunities.
hey awesome stuff I really like the ipod one. i feel ya on the imagination thing... don't worry about using ref! its just like doing a study you'll learn more and more... I think sometimes drawing from imagination is less a battle on the paper but a battle in your mind. you have to overcome all the little tricks you've picked up and tap straight into your subconscious or something anyway blah blah blah awesome work!
cool studies in here - I agree with your statement on post #856
try to fix some anatomy and composition stuff before rendering too much
although itīs awesome how far you can push it
damn omert it's been way too long since i stopped by in here and u have seriously gotten some nice level ups through hardwork, liking the tenacity keep at it, look forward to the updates!
love ur bridgman studies cool drawings
but i think that there is something wrong in the first girl head
Hey great characters, studies, colours... everything you need to do well in conceptart. Its great to see improvement through the pages too, you cant ask for much more than that...just keep improving.
Krato-indeed thanks for the encourgment Krato gona keep pushing it and keep burning those wacom nibs haha. Really diggin your updates dude
ThomasM-yeah guess just the reason why im being so hard on myself is cause im not having any schooling so im trying to work 10 times harder gets stress for me sometimes. and haha yeah that hump on that characters back is fkin wonky XD actually like everyone of my paintings are wonky really should focus more on perspective ect thanks for dropping by man appreciate it

Eddieee-yeah blocks suck! really shouldnt question myself and just draw the crap out of everything. Always gotta remember why i got into art in the first place just to have fun.

MattGamer-damn Matt always some awsome things to say really great crits.
"once you've mastered the basic foundations of art, you can then mold them into your liking. then breaking the rules and revolutionizing other peoples ideas and ways of thinking. that's what we all do as artists. we give people visual stimulation for their everyday boring lives. we give them something to hope for. we bring their dreams to life. we change the world around filling it with our sense of beauty, feeling, and perception!" that was some inspiring words right there thanks Matt best wishes dude will keep an eye out for your updates.

Time wages on battles fought beasts slain. All to remind her of her loved one who once stood bravley beside her. All that is left ragged bones blisterd by the heat of the sun. Isolated.. not knowing where the future leads.The flowers drift in the wind as she lets go of her memories the final good bye. Death.

Hey bro!! Ahh.. so that's what you've been busy on, great power in those character poses. I would say though, try more variation in them, for example you have a lot of red clothing and similar armours, try to add a bit more uniqueness to each of them so they become stronger individuals.
why have not ı see your sketchbook? your progress is amazing and post 886 so impressive.
