lovely chicks! keep up the good work man
Great Drawings. Keep going at it.
My Deviant Art: http://askia47.deviantart.com/
hey man, great stuff in here! that last chick looks really nice! great values! -the only thing that looks kind of off, is her armpit area. it seems to bulge out rather than sink inwards, but great work! keep going!
@Superema & SageTso : Thank you man! =D
@zou : Thanks for your advice and comment zou, I'll keep working daily =)
@NickyBeats : Thanks for your comment =) I'll try to maintain more on my anatomy.
some of my traditional rendering, using photo reference
any comment and crits would be appreciated =)
real nice stuff, i love how your drawings look lifelike and natural... no stiffness in them, they seem like genuine persons with their own thought and personality (something i and many others from what i see struggle)
otherwise, not much insight i can give, have to get as good as you good first
Nice stuff. I like the ones on the darker paper more, I don't know why, especially the first one. Looks like you've done it easily and quickly. Very confident.
Edit: As a suggestion, try drawing the hair like light and dark areas, not individual strokes. It makes them more believable. At least so they say.
Hey Aldo, nice sketchbook here! I find really fresh and well donethe objects from life. I like also the little touch of manga style! Keep it up
@Equilerex : Thank you Equilerex, I saw that you have a nice practice going on your sketchbook
@Gordebak : what a nice advice, I should try it =) Thanks Gordebak
@dleoblack : Thanks dleoblack, for now on, I want to try to do more on realistic stuff to boost my skill more on anatomy and stuff
@Vritra : yea, you are totally right, I still keep practicing on how I can draw with patient, because usually I always draw in a rush, I dunno why..
Nice to see you here and thanks for visitting my SB. You have lots of hard works going on here and with good results too!
Pakabar Do? Sy disini sih abis males gambar kemarin2. Gatau kenapa. Heheh. Tp sekarang dah mulai lagi ko.
Well anyway, Keep up the good works, you're improving a lot!
Hi, Aldo! I've some crits, hope you don't mind
Some of your figure drawings (also seen in here and here), have too straight features, especially the limbs (arms and legs). They looks like they are made of a very symmetrical cylinders. While it's ok to simplify the body in that manner, especially in gestural approach, you have to watch for the subtle curves that form the body. I'm sure you have noticed those curves (you like to draw girls ), now try to apply those knowledge to your drawings. Your sense of human proportion is fine, now I suggest you to do some detailed studies of individual human parts (closed up as in arms only, hands only, legs only, etc. in various angles and position.) It might trains you to be more patient in your approach as well Don't stop doing full figure drawings, though. Alternate between them as needed.
Now for the cowgirl piece, i think the colored version is losing some sense of action compared with the b/w sketch. most noticeably is the girl's pose which has less tension than the one in the sketch version. The character in the colored one may be more correct, in terms of anatomy and pose, but correctness isn't all, especially in art (incl. concept art)
Just my two cents, i hope they can be of help
oh and, this one's very good, especially the colors!

thanks for your advice, I just realise that they looks too straight XD I need to keep practicing to apply more curve on my drawing, but sometimes I'm still scared to do so.. because I feel that the figure will be out of proportion. but yeah! keep practicing
I've done my piece for the Cowgirl,
so here it is
and some progression of latest work.
I decided to added more canvas on it
any advice and comment might help =)
Hey there. You have some nice studies, both digital and analog,but the stuff from your head could use more movement and personality. That last one for example with the singer, it's' looking pretty static. There's some anatomy flaws in it as well; she has a small head and a long body, plus overtly long upper arms. Shading's on the flat side too. Actually the hands pointing at the viewer are done OK, but i wonder if there aren't other options/angles you can make that "hey you" idea come across. Hope i'm not being too harsh here.
nice sketchbook so far.
Few ideas for you: I think you should draw more men. You seem to be comfortable drawing women. Comfort zones can be limiting your potential. Understanding how to draw the feminine shapes will be your weak point when drawing masculine ones on men. This is actually the opposite of me at the moment. I draw women but they tend to have less elegant shapes than they should. Its an energy I try to tap into.
The other idea is for you to work with more brushes than the regular photoshop ones. I have a few I developed to act more like oil paints. They keep it nice and rich. The perfect shapes of photoshop make things too perfect. I think even with drawing smooth skin you need good quality texture all aorund it. Then airbrush the skin.
@walnut : wow thank you man, that's just fine, what you just said is true, and it really help me, I tried to make it better =D
@cgaddict : Thank you for your comment, I'd try to make my work better
@Sunny : Thanks for your advice Sunny, I just wondering if you have any brush that suitable for drawing the skin tone, from now, I'm just using the normal round photoshop brush. and I think I should start drawing men.. xD
some newest update
@Jaytea : hi Jaytea! thank you for your comment! yeah, I'll just decided to practice more on drawing dude now! haha
I tried to practice to draw face expression ( I just learning how to play with the colour palette, I felt that using colour palette will enhance the colour to be better rather then using the colour picker directly from photoshop.
Some rough painting, reference taken directly from the movie, Harry Potter and the Philosopher stone
some female studies - mostly practice to achieve realistic colour ( censored mosaic applied )
any comments and crits would be appreciated

Hey thanks for posting on my SB. I think your referenced images are great - but your unreferenceds ones could use a lot more work on the posing andanatomy. My suggestions is to continue what your doing but add a lot more anatomy studies to your list - find an anatomy book on Amazon.com or similiar and draw everything you can from it, thinking about how each part works with eachother and about the proportions. Once you have mastered your anatomy you will notice your un referenced images will be more refined. Great job so far though, keep it up.
Nice sketchbook, some really good high rendering skill coming along I think that lemur was my favourite, he looked awesome!
One thing though, as Sunny said, you need some men in here! Sure you've done a few heads, but you really need to toss in some nudes/semi nudes of full bodies to start learning how the muscles work.
Also, start studying anatomy masters like Loomis + Bridgeman, these studies are essential to any artist and will really help the construction of your drawings
Oh, and I really feel like I need to warn you about your erm, references. Its totally fine copying a few nudes and whatever, but I can't help but feel like you're getting into the habit of drawing smut here, which potential employers definetley don't want to see in portfolios.
Seedling wrote about something simalar in this guide to the industry, which is a really good read regardless -http://www.conceptart.org/forums/showthread.php?t=76898
Anyway, keep up with the studies, they're looking great so far
