I'm getting a real kick out of making these, I'm going to try and whip out as many as two a day whenever it's possible, hopefully I 'll be able to catch up with the ones I'm missing. Hope you like Pidgeotto :)

Wow... it is really amazing to me to look through the pages of this thread and see how much you've improved. I'm actually surprised it lasted past page 7 ...there's barely any actual art lol. But once you hit page 17 on up... the difference is sooo noticeable!! Really fun to see your progress... and so much more of it to see too! lol Really impressive! KEEP GOING!!!! :D

Jesse Eisenberg, not sure if it I didn't do a good work at getting the likeness right or he just isn't as popular as Sheen. Either way, thank you for stopping by and leaving a comment, I'm glad you like the Pidgeot :)

Thank you for such kind words, it is truly an honor to have you think that. Yesterday I went around this thread and god I was an awful forum member, childish, unwitty, dumb and just plain stupid plus you're right I barely posted art, jajaja thank god I learned, to not suck so much, jajaja hopefully you'll stick with me through this endless journey and enjoy the ride as much as I do :)

Here's a Rattata for you guys and gals :)

I think the first one was better. This one looks kind of like a Chinese cat.

you copy your layer to make it a shade right? I find that this only works on certain posed. since this one is pretty much a sideview angle it should work kinda, but atm the shading is completely of. I am only referring to the shade on the ground.

Also I believe you use the dodge and burn tool for your shadings? or maybe not, but you include your (black) lines in this (so what I mean is that your lines are also 'shaded'). personally I dont really like this. these pics look better with a sharp black outer lining imo.

nice piece

Yeah, I know the shading on the ground is completely off, pretty much on every image but I'm just too lazy too actually shade it like it should be, but since this is really just a doodle I don't worry too much about that.

Actually, I paint everything, no dodge and burn tool, I actually do that on purpose, really cause I personally like it. I don't know why, I just don't feel like having a completely black outline with all the paintery shading seems like a good idea, so when I'm done I use the predominant colors to also shade the outline slightly.

I'm not sure why I love masks so much maybe it's because they can hide the beauty or the ugliness of everyone in a single second. It just makes people in human, it makes you not want to be close to them but at the same time it inspires imagination, anything can be behind that mask, I just love masks...

I think the shading is pretty good but there are some mistakes in the anatomy. The right hand thumb, the breasts, the legs the feet, the left hand fingers, and the hips. The overall pose looks a little uncomfortable. The line work should be a little more solid.

It was just a little sketch, I just wanted to play around with the colors and the shading, but thank you for your comments, I'm planning on doing more and I'll surely keep those things in mind next time around.
