Worked on the image some more, it's pretty much finished at this point. Might do a few minor tweaks here and there later on....

Doing a ton of perspective studies on my spare time, will probably be doing these for at least a month, really want to get more comfortable handling environments and interiors:

Can I ask if anyone knows of an alternative to photobucket to upload images? Photobucket is being a pain as of late, it's hard to organize my files there and sometimes it accidentally posts 'doubles' of my work so it's a bit annoying. Any help would be appreciated!!!!

Started on a piece for a friend, below is the current progress (sketch and quick colors); I'm using less saturated tones than normal, we'll see how that goes as the image progresses...

Nice rendering on this last one CG. As for perspective studies, if you haven't got Scott Robertson's How to Draw book, then you should pick it up right now lol. It's a great book and full of information that would be difficult to glean from just studying photos.

Palladium: Thanks for your recommendation, I'lll look into it. Currently I'm studying from 'Perspective Made Easy' as well as 'Ernest Norling - Perspective Drawing' which have been extremely useful for me, perspective comes much more naturally to me now after doing all these studies, thankfully.

The finished image! Pretty pleased with it, especially in terms of colors as they're not over-saturated which was becoming a bit of an issue with some of my work.

I haven't updated this thread in quite a bit, and a lot has happened in the last several months; Most notably, my father passed away recently due to his battle with cancer; He has always been a fighter, and the last several months were have been very intense for him. With that said, God has chosen to release him from his pain and bring him to a better place.
I'll always remember him as a great man and a huge inspiration for me; He always pushed me more and more to be a better artist, and was always a service to others in need. I'm very glad to have painted him a portrait for Father's Day a few years ago that he got to see and enjoy.
I'll cherish all the great memories I had with him and will take inspiration from him to be a better person and a better artist, as that's what he would have wanted from me. I'll miss him dearly and I'll always cherish the good times together. I'm proud to have had him as my father and I'll miss him dearly; May he rest in peace.

"In Loving Memory"

I've been very productive the last several months, freelancing full time which hasn't given me a lot of free time, but I'm very proud of the work I completed for various clients. Below are some updates:

That'll be all for now, I'll have another update later today; A caricature I'm working on for a friend, the linework is almost finished.

Haven't updated this thread in ages, been very busy with work, most of which I can't show due to NDA. I finally found the time to start on a personal piece, however; Spent a ton of time on the sketch to make it just right... I'm going for a very iconic feel with this one. Here is the sketch followed by the current WIP:

As always, any feedback is welcome!

I recently completed a bunch of card game illustrations. The cards themselves are going to appear much smaller than how they appear here, so I didn't overdo the detailing and refinement but I wanted them to 'read' easily. Had a lot of fun with these!

Currently I'm working on a Fan Art image based on Batman V Superman.  I spent a lot of time on the sketch, I feel like the more work I put into the early sketching/drawing phase the easier the painting process will be since the shapes are essentially taken care of.  Below is the sketch followed by the current progress shot:

Worked on the image some more, trying to push values as much as I possibly could to give it a rich feel:

Worked on the image more, lightened up the values a bit on the figures as they were a bit too dark for my taste. Still has a long way to go, but I think it's coming together:

Worked on the image some more; I created two different custom brushes, each specifically to handle the texture work on Batman and Superman. I wanted a more gritty feel to the image, so I added some dirt and such to all the figures. The image is almost done now, here is the current update:

Had some free time to do some studies, finally. I focused mostly on the anatomy of the legs, still have to do many more to get a stronger grasp of the muscles a bit... Focusing on linework at the moment, I find I get the best results when I slow things down when doing these studies, the results look better and I learn more so I'm going to put more emphasis on 'quality' rather than quantity. With that said, I did find time to do a photo study as well, from a still from the 'Suicide Squad' trailer featuring Harley Quinn, a movie which I'm really looking forward to!

Been very busy as of late, but I wanted to take some time to do a Fan Art piece based on Suicide Squad's 'Harley Quinn'. I worked on the linework a great deal, really wanted it to be very refined early as it makes things go much quicker during the painting process. Here is the sketch, basic colors to follow:
