I like the way you use many colors, in the shadows! Maybe you should try to make more tension in the contour line, but if your tablet have some pressure sensitivity, it must be difficult! Keep it up!
Heya Fran, nice to see you painting! Be careful with the shading on the face though as it's looking a bit muddy in places atm. Nice to see some green tones on the skin - lotsa people forget or don't notice those Try blending the colours more though, 'cause to me it looks like they would work well, but not as they are now. Still, it's a WIP, ne?
Congrats on your marks!
You have a great book going on, i like your style a lot. Love how clean these drawings are http://www.conceptart.org/forums/att...2&d=1201047759 and this one http://www.conceptart.org/forums/att...1&d=1203534960 is really good, i'd like to see more of this.
really nice work. i especially like the stuff after your self portrait. do you paint minatures?
Haha wow !!! It's been a while since I've checked up on you... A few months I think. You've improved so much, it's crazy! I'm really digging it. : )
Please visit my sketchbook!:

Woop, look at that badboy! Nice popup, was the risk worth it, did they like it? My interview went really well and reaaaaaaaaallly short when I finally got in there.
Nice to put a real face to the name as well. good luck XD

SmartKyle- Cheers, i'm not sure they didn't really say much apart from it was nice! yeah was nice to meet you if only briefly!
After posting that last popup i realised i dont think ive posted these popups before! i had a week long project right at the start of my course to make a popup page, but i went and made a book
heres a couple of pages from it- i made it about magic Fran
Theyre rubbish photos- and you can kinds see my glue mistakes but i think that lighting just makes it look worse than it really is hehe
the pop ups look even better in real life, awesome sketchbook fran
Dan Bird- Thanks yeah right about that collarbone
Glassjaw- Cheers mate
Quicksilver- Tarr Gnomey- nope Brian has been off since i told you about him! not seen him at all
Bit of news- i have a conditional place for illustration in Bristol!
Heres some pictures i took today for college- we have to produce some work on the theme of local environment, but its not actually counting towards our mark, so i havent done that much for it- just took these photos around my local college. Now to start my Final Major Project!
I dont really have any proper experience with photography- so some of these are better than others! Oh well doesnt matter, get this project out of the way and start the one that actually matters!
I've popped my head in here a few times, but your most recent illustration (posted on the 1st) is just fantastic... you've improved a LOT since you've started posting. Keep up the good work!!
i especially like the popups - i don't know if you've heard of robert sabuda but your card one reminded me of this. this guy and his buddy are absolute masters, and i highly recommend picking up one of his books if you're going to be making more of these. there are some really creative cuts and folds in those books
