Hey man solid work! Great rendering. I do think there are some slight structure/perspective issues with some of your faces and proportions, such as improper for shortening. For the camera the perspective is slightly backwards, you have the closer side converging when it should be the farther side. Try doing more drawings of hard surface things to improve your structure and angles. Hope this helps.

crankshaft- Thanks. Yea I think I have all sorts of problems with my faces :D I dont really know what do you mean by conerging closer side. Yea I used to do like boxes in perspective so I can see the benefit in that but now I am doing stuff to get to school so I am building portfolio for that so I am not doing much different stuff. But I will surely get back to it. Thanks.

I somehow (probably drunk) recalibrated my monitor but I didnt know how soo yesterday I started doing some study and values didnt seem right. I didnt even finished the study just try and figure out how to calibrate it back to normal..... Wasted too much time.

Probably "fixed" my monitor. And by that I mean did it to a bit workable state. I own just some cheap monitor soo trying to get best of it.
Didnt do much. The "studies" I did just to see what should I change in calibration and drawings I did to get used to pen so I can do some drawings for portfolito to school so I´ll get accepted.
And some drawing for that portfolio to school.. Looking too much at james jean...

In the same boat with you on art school, it's tough not letting the empty time get to you. Hopefully that time gets filled with tons of drawing and soon so much that you'll feel weird and awkward without it! (I don't actually hope you feel awkward though. :D) More more more ladies in armor!

Nowio- Thanks but now I feel like I forgot how to render properly or something :D gonna need to go back into it somehow.
Yea no matter, it happend, not really bumbed about that. Need to just figure out how to start working or something to not have need for some other job.
But thanks.

rondellgayle- Thanks. Yea hopefully I get to do some managable timetable so I wont get burned out but get enough stuff done. Need to think it through.

Some stuff from today. Pretty confortable with drawing after doing traditional for a bit but it feels like I forgot about rendering.
Also I didnt realized that some people actually read what I write here :D I just used it after days of studying not really thinking people might actually read it and not just look at art :D

I was working on that character and I drew almost all as it looks now and I closed photoshop by accident without saving sooo I needed to draw it all again..
Some exploration of ideas for that character and quick adrian smith study..
Pretty stuck with that character. First I was thinking that it would have some water bow or something to go with theme but I dont know... So I tried to stuck some bow from some sticks or something but it dont really go with the theme of underwater creature.

Somehow I hate everything I do these days. Cant even focus on studies... But no matter I guess, Just get through it. At least trying some james jean-esk drawing focusing on form wrapping.

Had to do some stuff so I didnt end up drawign alot. It finally seems that I would have to get some regular job and stop drawing regularly, If I dont find anything in art industry... sooo I will probably start to really focus on building some portfolio and at least try looking for some jobs... Dont really know what I am doing :D

Neat stuff dude!
your rendering is on point, but your construction is lagging behind a bit.
Keep pushing it!

Aragah- Thanks. Yea should come up with some new exercises to get it right.

The fun thing about doing pieces for a longer time is that you forget what you actually wanted to make and just put random stuff there. The portrait is going pretty much nowhere so I should probably just abandon it :D

Have been pretty idle these days.. Wasnt actually studying much was again just calibrating my monitor. Not really cause it was bad just wanted to see what the settings do and how it changes appareance of values on screen so knowing that I try to find best solution. Did it and will probably try to get back to some studying and doing stuff..

Because I changed that calibration the values look pretty different, so working on older sketch I changed the value range a bit but I dont know if I overdid it or it is fine because I have nothing to compare it to,

soo If somebody thinks that character has now bad values or something just say it if possible.
Did more studies then sketches so I can get used to it bit.

Took a day off and didnt want to work on that character so started working on older sketch. Redraw armor a bit, going to put more patterns later. And quick study. Wanted to look at some patters beforehand. Not much.
