This will hold my new stuff (and force me to do new stuff hehe), but for now there are mostly old things.

Humm you asked me advices but I don't know what to tell right now! Your life drawings look really nice, and the watercolor piece shows that you are already confortable with it... Maybe colors now?
Great job really!
It looks great, i like the skeleton youve done.. i saved it to my ref folder hehe..
Clochette: well, I would just like to know about the that digital watercolor stuff you are doing, I would like to learn that.
Ok! Hummm maybe the Bluefooted tuto can help you first?
I don't proceed the same, exactly...
I use paper textures, (layer in color burn mode, 45% opacity most of the time) and use textured brushes, very simple, natural media brushes, looks like charcoal : ) ) Then I make masks on the texture layer to add or low the opacity of the texture, depends where I want it to be stronger or softer. And some parts I paint over the texture too... Depends!
Hope it helps! ^^
Beautiful update. I love all your nudes, but that skeleton, and that crab are my favourites. What type of paper and pencil did you use to create these? Just because I'd really want to learn more about pen and pencil drawing - I just don't really know what are the proper tools for this.

I've bought the papers in Hungary, and these were made a long time ago, so I don't really remember. I've found that the good papers for graphite are the ones that has quite some texture (something that looks this stripy, like linen), but not as much as Aquarell papers. And I've always used 2B or 3B pencils. Smooth surface papers tend to make graphite look very slimy, and too textured paper can make the values not unified enough. There are very different opinions about paper/pencils though. Some can work with very soft pencils really well.
Some made based on photos.
First bunch made with ink/mechanical pen, last 3 with linocuts.
I know this place is for other kinds of art, but this is the thing I was most home at. More of this will come.
Some comic pages, illustrations, a strange looking vegetable, and cute animals.
Some more old stuff. I'm soon out of them, so I have to make something new.
Crits and comments are welcome.
Post-apocalyptic Siamese twins.
Street Fighter Villain self portrait without the changing animation. (Hopefully I will finish that tomorrow)
Thanks for the vote in Endless CHoW. Very nice work so far - you should keep posting.
When I compare the quality of what you've done in post #12 with the CHoW work you've got in post #14, I'm tempted to say you should use more reference for the CHoWs. The CHoW work is good, but what you've done elsewhere is even better. Is that a time thing or a reference thing?
Love the comic work at the beginning of post #15.
Jo napot kivanok! Quality SB! Your stuff is very special, very artistic!! I love your comics and studies! Keep em coming baratom!
scottmcd: You are welcome. I don't use much reference for the things I'm doing in Chow because I would like to learn painting/drawing without reference as well. I think that's my goal.
psantha: Thanks haver. Thing is, I'm pretty slow with making drawings, with the workplace being about almost the same thing, but I will try my best. Still, it's hard for me to make a daily sketchbook.

I love the litho style images and that last Chow is beautiful. Thanks for posting these. They are a great variation of styles.
I was planning to put these in a longer animation and use it here as my profile portrait. Maybe later.
Thanks for the critique in the green fairy thread. You mentioned that that the background looked like it had been done in a 3D program. It wasn't, but I used paths to define the areas and make selections, which resulted in that look. It bothers me too, and if I keep going with it I'll repaint it properly. Same for the wings, which I did in Illustrator.
I quite like your second version - good work.
I will try to make at least 1 of these every second day from now on.
Or at least something to put here.
A new CHOW piece.
