Mila: Yeah I've been trying to do one a day. They're all done from mirror, that's why they're so unbelievably bad.
Hair Fish: Thanks man! I have a collection of brushes from different artists. Mostly I'm just using a regular round brush but lately I've been experimenting a bit with more textured brushes.
Andrew Sonea: Thanks! Haha don't worry about it, this shit doesn't deserve 5 stars. Thanks alot for the crit. You're right, the SPs are horrible. I think it's because I get too occupied with getting likeness down so that I forget everything else, it just becomes little scribbling trying to get everything right. I've done few SPs during the last few days trying to be more loose and textured as you advised but so far they've been pretty bad. I'll post a new one when I manage to do something worth showing. Overall the reason for the SPs it not really to get finished good looking portraits but to get the likeness down, thats not a reason for not getting more textures down.
I really should try to get some better lighting here, I think thats partly why I don't seem to get any of the planes read.
Thanks for the crit!
Been a bit busy during the last few days. Some crap that I'm not gonna post.
Heres a quick study focusing on brushwork and stuff, by David Palumbo.
xbert: thanks man! I really like doing the still-lifes. I'm glad if you can see some progress - it's hard for me to see any.
Mariusz Kornatka: Thank you! Glad you like them
Been doing those SPs and stuff but they suck. Heres a small wip, I'm not sure where I'm going with this.

xbert: Thanks man! I hope I can catch you one day haha.
Satupeikko: Thank you! Glad to see you around
Wip. I feel like I went too far, it had alot more feelign and energy before I started rendering more.
Also a character. I'm slowly trying to get more into characters. Did few quick color passes but didn't find anything that I liked so I'm just posting the quick sketch. Also did more self-portraits, as always but those aren't really worth posting.
Hey I'm always around. Lurking in the darkest corners, stepping little bit at the light when nobody sees and gazing your beautiful works from the shadows. I'm just that ninja that you don't see me! No just kidding. I only wish I was ninja but really I am not, sob. The sadness You just keep doing your stuff and don't you dare to stop! I'll just keep.. doing my ..ninja-training (shh).
Satupeikko: Never stopping yeaah! Atleast I try x.x;
Vulgar`: Thanks! I kinda don't like it already so I don't think I'm gonna work on it anymore.
Few really quick landscapes from head.
very cool landscapes
rich4rt & Mariusz Kornatka: Thanks alot!
Stuff. Felt like working a bit more on one of the yesterdays landscapes.
Ugh I'm so utterly horrible with characters, I don't know what to do with them. I feel like I'm seriously lacking something bu I don't know what it is. I also can't seem to have similar kind of approaches and ways of working as I do with enviroments. Everything just collapses
Stuff. I feel like Kinda hitting a wall again. I feel like I'm finding the limits of how much I can learn by myself. A shame we don't have any decent art education around, it's all crap.
I know what you mean I just left my illustration courses in college and my teacher was in shock. I live in Israel, everyone around me doesn't want to learn rules or theories just draw 'cool stuff' all day with no real education and the teachers don't teach differently at all. People look at me like I'm from the renaissance. Where do you live?
Ha! I feel your pain. Same here. And same here. Just don't stop, all walls give in sooner or later.
MeteorCat: Thanks! Yeah tell me about it. I just want to practice my ass off working on REAL drawing skills. Not the shit thats going on. I live in Finland.
Tacijana: Thanks! heh yeah I hope. I'm just not happy with my progress. It's too slow.
Gpozzo: Thank you! I'm glad you like them
Just some really really really quick stuff. 1min thumbs, some few minute SPs just trying to figure stuff out and be more efficient. Also a scribble I made away from home and my wacom. Just messing around with mouse mainly using lasso tool, gradients and custom shapes. Something I don't do very often.
seriously your experimental landscape painting are incredible and they look fairly quick too, compare to mine they're like crap. That's it i quit, lol.

dlincoln83: Thanks! I'm not really confident with colours. I feel like I can get them fairly accurately when studying but when working from imagination they're absolute horrible.
kimozabbi: Thanks! Nay just keep going!
n3raz: Thank you! I'm glad you like them
Heres few quick studies. I don't feel like I have to go very accurate with these in terms of detail. I love these kind of boats! They're awesome.
Satupeikko & MeteorCat: thanks!
Haven't got much to post but I just wanted to do this right now.
To the person who gave me one star, really now? If you think I'm that bad please do tell me so I can improve, not just vote me down and take off. And if you're just down voting people out of spite, I feel sorry for you. You could use that time to practice instead so you wouldn't have to push other people down. Don't get into way of other people trying to learn and receive crits and comments on this site. You're just ruining it for everyone.
