Jakers: Thanks Jake! Me, natural?! surely you jest?! Took your advice and stepped away from the horse corpse. I've decided to properly "pick" my subjects from now on instead of grinding along and going nowere with something too difficult. Thanks again!
Heres something I prepared earlier. 45mins, trying to avoid pressure based opacity and seeing how far I could go with the brush.
The hand studies are inspiring. I like your lighting approach. The church enviro is sweet. I think you have to work a bit the chancing points of the tones. Like on the churche's right corner, the shadow is coming in front too much i think. Keep it upa man.

yo mate you are doing great.Try to play more with the rendering.Time to soften after the part that you place the main values (you do this very good)
keep up the good work!!!
All I can say is that you are obviously putting in the work (the first page alone is like scrolling through some volume of a book!) and its paying off. Keep up the great studies and developing your linework and colour use. Impressive amount of hard work going on here to say the least
hello there,i really like your pencil studies on figure ,your digital studies have got pretty good value but i'd like to see you play more with colors such as warm/cool temperature of the color you've picked.
keep it coming, i want to see more of your pencil drawing!
kingkostas: Thanks mate! I assume you are referring to the pencilwork? If so it's undoubtedly due to timing, in which case I'll either have to speed up or allow myself more time!!
ThomasM: Thanks Thomas!! I'll keep at it!
vatteh: Thanks!! Will do!! (I should be able to update with some pencil stuff tomorrow.
manatworks: Thanks!! Will do, I'm hoping to get back into colour studeis shortly.
Here's some studies and a face from imagination.
very nice mate!!!i meant that you had to play more with smoother rendering like in the figure before the last image of this post.lovely anatomy studies!!!
btw i have already worked the linework of the char at some point
kingkostas: Thanks kign!! No problem, I'll bear that in mind in future. Good to hear the character is coming along nicely.
Here's some colour photo studies, not paying too much attention to likeness or proportion, mostly fooling around trying to get colours looking right. Approx 1.5 hours each.
very nice mate!!! I still get a feeling of blackness in there.I checked out the values of the colors and looks like they are all close to their grey quality.Maybe there is more contrast or i dunno how the photos are.
keep it up!!!
kingkostas: Thanks mate!! It could have been any of a number of factors: my lack of experience with colour, the time taken, the fact that I left a lot of the very black linework in the second one etc. Thanks nonetheless, I'll keep that comment in mond the next time around!
A quick test in sketchup, not perfect but I really was only experimenting (note the clever use of camera angle to play down the fact that it's a little too wide! Incidently, I am only now noticing the dent in the rear of the cranium... oops). Actually lets just pretend it was intentional and was Red Dwarf Fanart .

Great figures sketches! Definitely do some more landscape studies - perhaps develop one all the way through?
Visit my sketchbook. c:
Nina the Tiny: Thanks Nina!! Landscapes aren't exactly my top priority at the moment but I would definitely love to do some proper landscape studies in future llike those you are suggesting.
Unfortunately I couldn't spend as much time as I wante painting today, however I did do these studies, a mix of Loomis, Bammes and Kevin Chen.
kingkostas: Thanks mate!! Haha, I know, some funny stuff going on in that sketch. For one, the method of renderin on her head completely clashes with that of the rest of her body, and the effort put into the entire piece just diminishes as you aproach her feet!
More head gestures and one from imagination.
