in all honesty i clicked for the boobies but.. stayed for the AMAZING ART
im glad u decided to post here, really well done stuff, it is appealing to the eye. if i had any critique/excuse for advice.. itd be to keep working on edges.
theyre so hard for me personally in digital painting. i only say this because of a few pieces on here,... also i wanted to reply with something other than drooling ans praising your art... hehe im "new" to this.
anyway. good stuff, really really advanced stuff, keep posting.
I really love the picture from post #19
is there any reference you used?
the light and colors are amazing~
Awesome start buddy! Looking forward to more posts
I like your style and the way you render. Everything doesn't have to be incredibly tight (I for example struggle to NOT do eveything tight) always. Moar posts please!
amazing transparency.. liked!!
Wow, what happened? More comments in one day than in the entire month since I opened this SB! Thanks so much, hearing all this is really motivating.
aolifour, Hair Fish: I recently downloaded Algenpfleger's bursh set and was playing around a bit with those texture brushes, but in most pictures, it's about 80% just a hard round.
Velocity Kendall, DANKA, sutapa, shockowaffel: Thanks a lot!
Sporus: Haha, thanks man, seems like the boobies did their job! And yeah, my edges still need a lot of work. Been using lasso tool probably too much lately for the sharp edges.
Daimida: Yeah, it was a study, I think the photo ref was from some Pbase.com gallery.
GEB: Thanks man. Your SB is very inspirational! I hope I can get to that kind of level too.
JulieSS: That's nice to hear! I love artists who are very strong at implied detail, so I'm trying to work on that as good as I can.
Character I started for CHOW. Pretty uninspired design and not too happy with the pose though.
Beautiful renderings! lovely orange yum yum

You and only you, with your own sincere self-discipline, and effort, can make yourself an artist.
Nice. I'd like to say something helpful and insightful, but i got nothin! I think you're on the right track since there's a clear progression in the studies from page 1. And that's only page 1!! Also, you're doing a great job with algen's brushes. : D Lookin forward to more.
Thanks for the nice comments everyone.
Some more studies and a Game of Thrones inspired doodle. Probably gonna start painting that one later.
Simply awesome. I love your figure studies. You're true grit work is my fav.
J: Don't call my escorts hookers.
B: Mom's still got it!
J: I don't date whores!
L: This objectification of women has to stop!
M: It's just mom and whores...
My Sketch Book
You're too hard on yourself, always putting your own stuff down. Your work is very nice.
Ugh, this one looked way better to me before I looked at it again with fresh eyes.
Which ones are traditional art works?
Crazy good stuff, man!
I can see a few anatomy issues in that last painting, but the colors are gorgeous and it's riveting. I love her translucent torso and the copper triangles on her face.
..I'm a bit confused with what's going on with her necklace, though. It seems to be sitting on her chest and turning down?
Overall you've got great work here. Thanks for sharing and keep it up!
@k2mountain: It's all digital so far except for the 2 sketchbook pages on page 1.
@JesseM: Thanks for the crit. You're right the way that necklace falls makes no sense at all. Didn't even realize that before you pointed that out. My brain seems to be really good at blocking out completely obvious and stupid errors!
Some more studies.
Holy shit, 5 stars? Those other guys with 5 star SBs totally MURDER me with their artworks compared to the crap I post.
Anyways, some stuff from imagination and another movie study.
I think this has been said before, but I clicked for the boobs. You sly, sly man...
but hey, good stuff. You may not like your paintings yourself, but maybe you never will no matter how skilled you become. So don't spank yourself too much, just keep doing your pew pew pew! It will be fiiiiiine!
Bunch of quick color studies and an environment from imagination.
That new way of painting looks fantastic! Mega improvement in 1 post!
man, your rendering is fucking crazy good.
especially in the first posts, the sb avatar is insane. keeping push harder !
