Great work! The progress from the beginning of the thread till the end is really obvious. And the last portraits from life are great!
The last character is also really nice. The lighting on the face especially.
Well done! Keep posting and improving!
Yeah, it has been a while, but I think I've missed some of your updates too, no worries, just looked now..
I think your painting has improved since the last page or so, the colour has become brighter and your form is just improving more and more, the paintings are really clear now. Not sure whether I should crit cuz your stuff is looking really good atm.
Thank you for sharing your works with us as well. Keep well for now bro. =)
You've got some nice rendering skills. But I think your advice in my SB can be aplied to you too. Anatomy always is a bitch, so constant practice is essential. Keep going with a great stuff (love the guy with a brain).
Hey Paul. Nice sketch thread.
What I really like is that you are putting all of it out there, getting your ideas on the (digital) page. Don't stop the imagination and keep learning the core as you go.
Good stuff in here.
I was a little busy and messed up with my job....time management and all of that, now i want to get back active around and work hard and get better. I hope to have time to post more often then i used to. I made a plan to make more photostudy and drawings to grow faster and ill try to keep that.
Ok and here are a few of my last illustrations.
clark - Thanks lot for passing by! I do my best to grow
Mag-Neo - Thanks for that! I feel...im a little maniac about details...)
karantina - Thanks, who know maybe ill do some viking girls sometime
laur2000ad - da, e funny, desi art directoru de la job mia zis ca nu se pune asa ceva in portofoliu and stuff) Merci man!
Windmaker - Thanks man, i try my best to grow and im glad it can be obvious.
hücumkedi - Thanks! colors its important for me
Kungfoowiz - Thanks a lot for comments man! I hope ill be more active on the forum
Seraph Fawkes - Thanks, i always try to keep an good anatomy and use references to help me in this.
AztcFireFlower - wow, its great to have your support! Ill try my best to imagine and create more and more, again thanks!

That is some progress. I'd pick on the anatomy in the couple of those (like the sci-fi dude and fantasy couple right after it - legs are just not good), but the lighting and rendering on the rest of the are just great. Genuinely like the panda one and that last dragonish thing too.
Hey man! The Zomby pice in your portfolio has a nice focus! It conveys the movement nicely. You got some nice images in generall. One weak point in my opinion is, that in many of your pices, like the panda/wizard or the sci fi one, the characters are not so well connected with the invironment. They dont really mix together that well. That is also caused by some perspective issues, for example with the feet. In the hunter pice (this woman with the dragon hat thing and the bow) you should work for example on her right food. It pops way to much from the ground. Anyway nice stuff!
Hey man its great to see the progress you have made in a relatively short period of time. These illustrations are looking good. First illustration from post 70 really grabs my attention. love the concept and composition the contrast between rage in the creature and the calmness in the magician makes for a great painting. Maybe some of the light from the balls of magic should be reflected on the creatures neck, that area looks a bit too dark. One thing I think will really help is trying to get my flow in your characters epsc in the way they hold their limbs can be a bit stiff at times. But conceptually you are doing some great work and the colours are really working well. Love that you are doing full illustrations with characters in a detailed environment its the kind of stuff i like to see. Glad you posted in my sketchbook cos now I have found yours cant wait to see more.
Wonderful work! And what a huge progress! Love the lighting and the colors in the latest images, they are beautiful!
Awesome, great illustrations around here! And good to see that you've come back to your sketchbook after two years, makes your improvement look very impressive. I like it a lot how you work with the colour moods and themes.
The other people pointed already out that there are some perspective issues with the ground plane and the feet of your characters. Another thing are the overall size measurements. The squirrel and its acorn are quite big. Much bigger than in reality and doesn't really feel for me like it's your intention. Makes it feel wrong, even if it is painted well. The pillars in the picture with the girl and the panda have the opposite problem for me. They're small. If I imagine the girl standing straight there, especially on the right, it feels like she could bump her head at the upper parts. I don't think people would build temples with pillars, low ceilings and stuff there always the danger of bumping heads is around
My advice would just be to be a bit more careful about the comparison of objects size and the work with perspective. Your working is going to be really professional! Keep it up!
You've got some nice rendering in those last pieces.
People have already pointed out some of your shortcomings with perspective. Something I'd add and has to do with perspective and time, they look like characters painted on a background and not in a scene/environment. It's a problem I have to overcome as well, so good luck with the challenge.
keep at it!
Interesting pencil line. And great works! I'll appreciate any advice on my beginner works.

i havnt seen your way of toning on here. its really unique.
Seraph Fawkes- Thanks a lot! Yes...i have problems with legs. And its weird that when i line draw them tent to look fine and when im start painting them things just...are messed up.
Matelo- Thanks a lot for appreciation and all! its hard to match them some times both. I just need to work more and hope in time ill correct that, anyway ill keep this critique in mind!
ja1307-I have some limbs problems, also im trying to avoid putting them in perspective. I need to find time for more study...Thanks a lot man!
asa- Thanks! Ive seen you thread, you are doing an progress, keep it up
Greenhouse- Thanks! It is some progress but its in a pretty long period of time...i had some hard times, but now i hope the progress will be faster.
Kungfoowiz- Thanks a lot mate! The panda bead its really appreciated around here
Valyavande- Thanks a lot for critique! The squirrel i wanted to be bigger then normal to stand out but for the pillars the problem is that I lack studies...I paint a lot without references.
Just Call Me Bruce!- Hey Bruce! Yup, there is this big issue with the background. I always change the background colors and mood and maybe thats why i get this problems...but yea...striving to solve that.
kjylee- Thanks a lot! Maybe a bit to many details but its fine for now...
Lucarky- Thanks! Ill keep an eye on you thread
mcgara- thanks a lot! Im glad you like it!
Maybe for some of you 13 sucks but for me its a lucky number! aaaaa..actually it`s my favorite number and I will do my best to have an great year! I want to get to the ``next level``, i know ill will have to study hard to solve some of my perspective and anatomy of the body problems, this will be my main goal.
I was looking back, at the end of the year, and i have to say 2012 had an fucked up begin of the year and gone very bad for me(i was doing very boring stuff, ive got tired to fight for my ``dreams`` and i almost lose my interest in art)...but in the last part of the year things start moving great, ive got pumped and i`ve evolved a lot in my art! After all i didn`t expected at all to change that much life perspective and wishes in one year.
Have a great new 2013 and good luck with your goals!
Here are some stuff i can show, and yes, im looking forward to have HARD AND HONEST CRITIQUE guys! Also thanks a lot for the already offered advices.

wow man nice work and great improvement. Color and lighting wise your stuff looks way up there. Some of these illustrations are really professional looking, like the first and last ones in post #70. Some of the characters poses are very rigid, though you could probably work that off doing more gesture/anatomy work. keep going!
just want to second what has been said, to level these up you really gotta work on perspective and on loosening up those figures!
the comps could all benefit from having more interesting camera angles, the action ones especially
very nice rendering on them all, it seems that is your strong point, so i would focus on balancing it out a bit. and careful with the black! it seems to me your strongest pieces are the first one, the girl with the red hair, and the dragon with the red wings, and im sure its partly because of minimal use of black. actually, i really like the rendering in these 3 i mentioned, great work
yea i agree with Lakai, but overall everything is looking really great man!! i am seeing some huge improvement! keep going strong! and thanks for dropping by my sketchbook too!
Your painting skills are definitely good. Colors look great too and I really like the environments you put your characters into, but I would work some more on the drawing part of the characters. Some of them look stiff or suffer from strange anatomy. They've improved from the older ones on the previous page though, so I guess you're moving in the direction. Looking forward to more!
nice lighting and movement and you capture the atmosphere really nice good job

crits and comments welcome.
Hello Guys! Ive been very busy, I had done an big portfolio review because i wanted to apply to a few Tradable Cards Games companies and i had to changed/update and create a few new images. I hope ill get some jobs soon, even if the dont answer yet...i just have to keep optimistic, so if you have any suggestions of TCG let me know.
Right now i want to focus on growing more because i am ``almost there``, I just need to make a good balance with my time for study and money i need to live and pay bills, and to study more in the next few months, I`m planing to stream soon
Here are some images i had to redo and also some new stuff. looking forward for critic.
@JoeS- Thanks man for critics, i had a few attempts to correct the stiff, rigid poses, and still try
@aks9- Thanks for this! What can i say, i have a bit more black that i need in my image but i hope soon i will fix that along with the dynamism problems. Cheers!
@Lakai- Thanks mate! i do try to work more with studies and fast posses to improve that.
@NickyBeats- Thanks a lot! also thanks for dropping by
@Revidescent- Thanks yup...i know my dynamism of the images, i work hard on this but this seems to be my week leak.
@asa- Thanks a lot man bafta si tie
@razz- Hey Razz and thanks a lot man for dropping by! Yes, creature design i need to do. Sometimes i forget about anatomy and start detailing...but at the end i feel sorry.
@C mcgreevy- Thanks man
