Let's see some more full body from-life studies!
You should focus on black/white value before going to color. A trick to color is to take what you're working on and change it to grayscale to get a feel for how you translate your sense of light/dark into color. It's not a perfect conversion, but it's close enough for reference.
I love the spider! Actually i have arrachnafobia, but i love ur painting. Very realistic.
You are making nice progress. And your colors are getting pretty pro!
I'd say keep painting and also sketching of course ^^ and you will only get better and better!

Here's an art dump of my recent stuff. Just values practices and trying to get my skills back up. Feedback is always welcomed.

Decided to work on my basics and did a couple quick anatomy sketches...More to come over the days. Hoping to improve my line work as well.
good SB, particularly the later stuff. Great werewolf, good detail, scary. With art, writing, music, you're never too old. Keep at it.
drd and doncam - Thank you both. I appreciate the feedback and the motivational words. I look forward to doing more here and getting even better. The sky's the limit. Right?
Latest incarnation of the Big Bad Wolf. As pointed out by others, I think I need to do another rework and fix the top teeth. They seem too straight and not curved enough to give the illusion of depth. Also, the blood needs to be thinned up a bit.
Dayum, that came out a lot better than I thought it would! Curving the top canines was an effective choice. Tiny things that would help: making the light to dark transition on the back of the tongue a little slower, and perhaps bring the darkness forward a little bit; lowering the values of the back of the snout (closer to the eyes) as its farther away, just very slightly darker; cropping off a bit of the black space above the subject and blend the subject into the blackness more smoothly, or at least lessen the look of the transition as leaves.
If I were you, I wouldn't change it. Or, I should say, if I were me in your situation, I wouldn't change it, because I'm lazy. I don't know how lazy you are or aren't so I won't insult you.
For anyone who looks at my sketchbook here, I've changed my username. No longer shall I be Artastic....I am now Thor's Hammer.
