i know, i made the mistake of posting some shitty sketches, in which i was just experimenting a new minimal and simple style, in the first posts. this wasn't my highest level of skill, it was just an experiment. that said i don't know what to tell you: if you're referring to those elite drawings (and i'm quite sure you do) the only thing i can say is i just copied them from some pictures, altering the tones and contrast, i didn't traced them, hell i don't trace at all and i never did it in my life. all you can do is thrust me and consider me an honest artist because there aren't neither proves that i traced neither proves that i didn't, so we're going nowhere this way. but i'm tired of keeping defending myself against these groundless charges, so i won't anymore in the future.
First I'd just like to point out that I'm not accusing you of anything, only just trying to point out why some of the other comments lend to a tone of suspicion. Actually, the black and white images do look like the rest of your work, if anything it was the kirby image that struck me as the most surprising as there was a finish to it a lot of your past images lacked. But I'm seeing that same kind of finish again in your current 40K WIP.
I've seen leaps in progress before, so I certainly don't doubt your improvement at all, and if anything my surprise is more of a compliment. Keep it up, your finesse with digital painting is really looking nice. My only real input is that some of your anatomical structure could use some work, but I'm sure you'll improve in that field as well :D
