Those are some nice hand studies! I love the fluid lines you are using, it seems like you are really understanding the rhythm of the hand. The guy in your last sketch though seems like he is suffering some proportion problems... I think the pelvis area might be too small. Keep working at it though!
The character in your third post doesn't look like it's stand, so at the very beginning try sketching with a few lines the intention.
keep it up
looking very good ! i think a healthy dose of landscape right about now would be wicked, atmospheric perspective , composition and flow
keep em coming good sir !

Hi Shinoji, You have some nice stuff here, I'm liking the studies.
For your colored stuff, they look a bit muddy, probably due to soft brushes. Try out harder brushes, they usually give better results.
I see you're a halflife fan (#4)
I get the feeling you aren't into it since you said it took a while, but I actually really like the etching thing you did in post #10
Check out my sketchbook!
HAHAHA; ''Please kick me I talk too much.''
Nice SB! but you need to incorporate "structure" a little more, understand your characters 360º.
keep it up!
Slowly trickling in some updates. I've done a lot of sketches and final pieces, but I'm not too proud on any I've done this past semester, so I'll put up some recent stuff and some favorites.
Acrylic on Board with Model
A character I'll be finishing digitally soon
random creatures I'd like a critique on.
I'm trying out doing a silhouette first then working out details afterwards to get more of a spontaneous design.
wow an update
for any pieces, it is important to think about your value range
and your chroma key (http://www.conceptart.org/forums/showthread.php?t=17837)
in digital painting the colours can quickly become dull and muddy if you don't consciously chose your colours purposefully
if you colour pick around your piece or turn it to greyscale or adjust the levels/curves you'll realize that it's sort of muddy, that means that you could still push your darks darker or more saturated and your lights lighter
Alright, well I went over it again, and tried to make sense of the chroma since it doesn't exactly fit in low/med/high. I did make the purples darker and tried using brighter hues as highlights.
Ahh, I don't know where this thing is going but I'll put it on hold. I learned some interesting things from this though.. will definitely try to make something more cohesive
