Hello

I just saw this community forming so I thought I join in.
Here is some latest personal stuff. Just so you can get an idea of my work.
The next few post will probably be more studies and stuff.

nice to see you pushing things to finish man! don't use so much black to shade things though! not everything gets black if it doesn't receive some direct light, there's some ambient light in most situations and lots of materials wll still be light even in shade. remember, halfway to black - if it's a 100 (white) in light, it'll be around a 50 (grey) in shade. not always obviously but a good rule of thumb to start with. post studies!

Hey! Its nice to see that you are practicing the figures poses in different perspectives as well. People sometimes forget about changing the eye lvl of figures on there practice sessions and its actually a darn good practice, digging the animal drawings too.
I think some of your figures have something weird going on where the torso meets the hips, try to pay more attention to the center line and don't draw the hip box so much apart from ribcage.

@Jeso: Hey thanks. I guess its the place to be now, but nice to see you here as well. I hope this forum does well.
I'll try to keep the torso and hip thing in mind. I do still struggle with constructing anatomy a lot.
@laugart: Thank you. I hope I can keep it up to.

Nice dedication, mate. Keep it up, it will pay off eventually. There are still some mistakes in the figure drawings, as it has been mentioned already; I most notice the proportions being off between the lower and upper part of the body. Not much, but enough to notice.

Faaaaaa, dude that latest character piece is an awesome level up. And thanks for the kind words in my sketchbook, seems like you have come far since last time I saw you. Keep pushing it man, and remember to apply those studies everytime, it really, really helps.

@Jacob: Thanks a lot man :) I should really push the whole applying stuff more.

Here are just two face studies I did since I think faces, hands and materials are my main focus of my studies now (except that I'll alwayss do anatomy).
Once I get more confortable with these I want to get to colours and enviroments and then dynamic poses and design. Here it goes.
