Great job so far!
On the last one the arms look a bit weird - as if she's got too much fat underneath her skin. I think more smooth looking arms would work better.
Ps. remember that the arms are supposed to get narrower closer to the wrist area.
I think the hair looks a bit too big for the head, it throws off the proportions there and makes it look like it's sitting on top of the head rather than a part of it. Her neck also seems a bit off, but I can't tell if it's too long or too thin.
Looking forward to seeing how this turns out, hope to see more soon.
great work man ! love your rendering style !!! keep it up man
the colours look pretty off in that enviro study (lighting seems too green?), although the atmospheric perspective and values are pretty good where there is less evidence of using a photo (hills in the background). it'd probably work a lot better without the foreground and the figure.
Got no crits for you mate sorry its all good! I am not useful to you today I just have back pats and a well done for you.
Oh and happy belated birthday by the way, I do hope you sank some beers and told tall tales
all the best and keep on postin mate.
A great kind hearted lumbering bullock

Hey Kev, Nice update amigo! the last post I saw of yours, you was asking if someone could draw out what they mean about your figures being stiff, my pc messed up on me shortly after. Did anyone get back to you with a gesture sketch? If you'd like (it's gonna be shit compared to your drawings) I can do a quick gesture to show what I meant by loosening up your your recent imaginative creatures.
in your recent designs watch out for the tendons of the back hands. Neither of them are radiating outward from the centre line of the wrist but rather from the side.
Keep it up dude..we'll bang ok? hahahaaha (sorry been watching too much gamer poop)
edit: ah while I'm at it, those tendons only really show as strongly as you have drawn them when there is action of the fingers being pulled! play with your hand, you'll see. if they are relaxed as shown in your sketch. they are pretty vague to non existent.

luthertaylor-thanks! sure man it would be cool if you showed me what you meant with a drawing...and yeah i see what you mean with the tendons on the hand...maybe ill fix it but since it isn't a major flaw to the design idk maybe ill just leave it as is and not do it next time :b
lionheartgfx-thanks! what do you mean by how they are?
so i came back to this portrait for a little update...i cleaned it up a bit and re did the hair...it could be better but since i absolutely hate hair im not totally unsatisfied :b i would want to go way more into detail but the original image is only about 500 pixels so not much to work with...so i dont think ill come back to this again...done for good! :b

awesome portrait in post #377 mate. Really well done. My favourite piece here so far.
A tutor once said to me: "Let your mind go!" and it didnīt come back.

I love the first character design and I’m looking forward to seeing where you take the latest one. Keep pushing the environments as well!
cool updates man love the latest portrait excellent color variations keep up
wow that portrait is amazing and your character are improving!
sweet, sweet portrait, feels like jelly you know hahahaa, man i just love the way you render skin, anyway you could do a small tutorial or steps for us? id love that! anyway keep on sharin kevin!
great rendering as always, but can I ask you, were all of your past studies mostly from photos?
Great stuff! I want to see more Enviro studies!
Hey Kevin, it's been a while since I last stopped by - nice improvement going here - steady and strong. One thing I can say to watch for is your proportions when it comes to width - maybe it's on purpose but a lot of stuff is very thin feeling and scrunched horizontally. It's basically the opposite of the problem that I have which is to draw stuff too wide. Anyway, much love and keep up the good work!
