Hey dudes, so a lot has been going on since I got back from the workshop.
I got so much inspiration from the event it bled into other aspects of my life.
My portfolio was torn apart at the review at the workshop so I decided to start a new sketchbook focusing on developing technique.
I've also got a been VJing (Visual DJing) at clubs using the knowledge I gained from the workshop.
And my god it is fun.
And yeah I really want to be good at what I do so any advice would be helpful.
Ok so apples and statue are from life and the Study is after William Bouguereau. Spending a lot more time on things really helps.
Damn, it's awesoooome, I've allready seen your apples in the digital painting #2 thread, and it looks awesome ! I love your little girl ( please, post a step by step of the girl )! really impressive stuff! I don't think you need help at your level ! Anyway, i wanna see more, and keep at it!
Love the girl, albeit the iris might need some work. she looked kinda...creepy, in a psycho kind of way. But even in this step, the details are simply great.
And the apple looks tasty. Nyum.
the statue's legs, IINM, looks too short but maybe it's because of the angle.
Fantastic stuff! =)
The portrait of the girl is incredible Keep it up!

"Overwhelmed as one would be, placed in my position.
Such a heavy burden now to be the One
Born to bear and bring to all the details of our ending,
To write it down for all the world to see.
as for anatomy, sorry if I'm being cocky but I think the space between the eye is too narrow and it ended up making the head looked bigger. IMO, the nose, lips, and right eye (the ...eye on the right side of the picture, ugh. forgive my English) should be moved a little bit to the right.
Dude nice update. Bouguereau is the man, and that's a great study. I think it may look closer to his original if you used some stronger edge contrast, like using more faded and blurred edges. It seems like every thing is very sharp. And the apples are amazing, I remember seeing you post them somewhere before and I was blown away. Keep going man things look good.
Been very busy Vjing at clubs and events but im making time to get back to studying.
I don't even use Painter X at shows anymore cause usually we only have 1-2 hours, so basically I use half video mix/scratch and Alchemy for the other half.
We supported Z-Trip at a show recently
Yeah people were dancing so hard that you couldn't see through the windows because of the condensation...eww...
Block in for Willy's Dante.
This is what I believe to be his greatest work so i'm going to spend a long time on this to get all the subtleties in it.

Your work's really impressive. You definitely got a hand to illustrate "reality". I only think, in your last piece, there's something wrong with the chest of the upper fighter. It looks too huge for the rest of his body-
