Fantastic work! I dont really enjoy Japanese 'final fantasy' based art. How ever I throughly enjoyed veiwing your SB. Great use of colours and a wonderful sense of volume.
Keep it up man

Hey everyone, sorry for taking such a long leave.
I'm going to continue updating every day from now on.
To go with the "Lotus" picture.
AK86 My art is not Final Fantasy based at all. I haven't even played the games.
cgoz - Thanks. I hope I will find some more time to draw, as school is getting really busy at this time. Must concentrate on preparing for exams.
Chose the grossest colours I could possibly find. Took me probably around 20 mins today.
That second to last one is magnificent! I love the electric blue tattoo detail. I'll be checking this thread again!!
Chermilla - Thank you, I think it's going to be my favourite picture so far [if I don't stuff it up].
Pencil [omgwhatsthat], in my moleskine [the paper looks darker than it really is because of the horrible lighting].
yeah, that one's pretty good man. As far as wishing for art classes, what I've found is that they tell you the same shit you learn here, you still need to learn it on your own, the only difference is there're grades involved. But drawing from life kicks ass so do that. The ear looks kind of small, but good work man. I'll have to start doing the update thing again too.
Blue Severin - Rayk happens to have small ears
Posting some screenshots from the school project I was working on today. I made a sort of animation of the even files on OpenCanvas. Took me a very long time, unfortunately.
Hey dude haven't seen your SB for a while, nice updates
That's actually Rayk in real life?
With that latest update, I think her left arm is shorter than her right arm, and I think the length of her leg from her knees to her feet is too long in relation to her thighs.
That portrait of rayk looks awesome! Crits for your digis: I like a lot more your quick and sketch pieces, it seems to me that you are over-rendering the more finished pieces. Just a thought.
i like your digital work and the portrait looks great.try to post some drawings.see you.
Yup, that's what Rayk looks like in reality. Isn't he handsome?
School just started again for me, and this is the final year, so I have to sort out a few things first, because I flood my sketchbook with updates. I'll be posting a few photos/screenshots of my major work for VA. Oh yeah, I'm going to get adsl soon, so I should be able to access your sketchbooks better.
Anyone want to read my creative writing major work for English Extension 2 [it's a 6000-8000word story]? Joking, of course. No one wants to be put under that sort of torture.
Mixed media practice piece for VA. Had 20 mins of the lesson left, so decided to use the time productively. Bad quality photo. But it's not computer edited at all.
I challenge you people for self-portraits!
wow dude your girls are kickass and i love the lotus painting.
you said that you've never played ff but you should i think it will inspire you from what i have seen on your sb.
keep this great paintings up
I'm starting to waver in deciding what colour her dress should be... the pale green was good because it didn't distract from her tattoo, but I kind of like more saturated colours as well. Any ideas?
Showed the teacher my animation. She said it wasn't "deep" enough. VA hate... Going to have to do some major alterations to it. I just wish it wasn't 5000 frames. -_-'' I'll take some photos of my pencil progress sketches in my VA journal tomorrow.
Damned lack of time.
Hey , Sorry for not commenting,I like that piece but the tattoo pulls the eye from the face , desaturate it a bit.Also the skin looks a bit grey, try adding some reds.
keep it up .james
Hey kaoru, stuff is looking great. Really like the portrait of the girl, but one thing that stood out to me was her lower lip - the right side looks flat, might want to adjust the darkness of the edge. Really like the looser brushstrokes at the bottom. I like the girl with the tatto, but is that energy supposed to be around her or behind her? If its around her, some of the lightning/etc should be arcing in front of her, and she should be a slightly lighter value. I can see that a little on the edges, but i think its too subtle and it kills the effect. Great job, would like to see you post more often
rated you some stars! I love you tight your finished digital paintings are, very very clean. You have great skill there. Your figure work is great, could improve with more life studies but definitely rocking so far.
Fishspawn - Hey, thanks for the comment! I haven't decided yet about the origin of the energy ball/plasma sphere yet. I suppose I should decide soon... >>
TomCardin - Wow, thank you o_O I'm not deserving of stars yet though... [note the "yet"] Yeah, I'm attempting to do more figure studies when I can, but it's hard since I don't have much time these days [final year of school].
For anyone who's interested - WOOD.
Refined it a bit more and made the eyelashes more realistic. Will post the whole image soon. Does it get more detailed than that? Going to be printed on canvas [a reasonably large format] if the teacher even approves of it.
Dad told me to draw some pimples on her. -_-

Your work just keeps evolving. It's pretty crazy, you're improving at such a fast pace I'm envious.
about this girl : http://www.conceptart.org/forums/att...8&d=1172929801
her glowy tattoo things kinda look pasted on; they don't quite follow the dips and curves of her shoulder. Maybe make the glowing part a little bit more subtle? Hmmm.
I look forward to more updates
