Workin' on this thing now... Something feels very slightly off about the foreshortening. Also can anyone tell me how to make a good texture brush for highlighting scales? I ended up doing some texture highlights on the frog, but it would be a lot more work on this croc because there's more surface area to cover and its scales are a higher resolution.

I feel like I need darker shadows, too, but I'd appreciate some input on that.

Gave up on the croc for now, I just don't feel like doing that much detail with the scales. Maybe I'll come back to it when I finish this:

OH, and I found this laying around, so as a bonus, have an ANCIENT acrylic painting of Rocko. HOLY CRAP THIS IS SO OLD

Yeah man, it made a lot of sense to me and I really like the painterly look that I can get out of it. Thanks a lot for sending me that way :P

Here's another really really REALLY old thing I found... This one's pastels I think!

Hey I drew another thing, but only because I'm supposed to be working on something else. Somehow I can only ever be productive while procrastinating... Quite the paradox...

Been playing Skyrim. It's a great game, despite some of the (occasionally frustrating) glitches here and there. I hope this image doesn't somehow come as a spoiler to anyone who's still playing through the main quest line.

Still getting practice with that painting method... Because of that, this took an EXTREMELY long time to do. I'd put it at maybe 3 or 4 hours. I hope I can just blame not being accustomed to the workflow, because this should have taken like 45 minutes, looking at it now.

I'd like to if I have time; right now it's finals week and instead of spending a few hours on this I should really have been working on all the final projects I haven't started yet.

Thanks nexusknight!

DrFox, it can take anywhere from 15 minutes to 15 hours, depending on how focused on the piece I am or how much detail I want to implement, or the medium I'm using or what style I want to focus on.

Here's a background for a flash I might work on some more if I find the time; I figured I'd post it here because I almost never draw actual environments.

Ramatsu, I'm not really sure where I'm going with the flash, honestly, I just have some bits and pieces I might throw together at some point. Story-wise there's nothing so far. Thanks for the comment, though!

Space3case916, thanks! I always appreciate it when someone takes the time to review something I've done!

Been playing Doodle or Die, drew this there... Tools are limited to a few set brush sizes, all round, and only like 14 total colors to choose from. Nice challenge I think.

WOW it's been almost a year since I've drawn ANYTHING AT ALL.
Obviously that means I haven't improved in any way shape or form in the past 10 months.
Why I decided "HEY I WANT TO DRAW SOMETHING IN MS PAINT" I'll never know, but it looks like I can kiss my entire weekend goodbye.

Took a break, played some video games, about to get back to work on this thing.
Here's a closeup of the head.

I can't wait until I put in a background and have to redo everything to render the lighting correctly.

I already have to redo the nose.

Thanks, I just hope I have the ambition to finish it. Paint takes goddamn forever.

Necroing this thread because I can.

I haven't done any art since last year, working on changing that.

Here's a thing I started today, I kind of regret not using a reference but I'm not too far in yet, so I can still make corrections. So far, to me, the right leg looks like it's separated from the guy's hip, I can't seem to get the butt/hips right, and the left arm looks a little too thick at the elbow. Thoughts?

Try bringing the horizon line lower as most of the figure represented is it's side.
This will make it easier to tweak rather than trying to force the perspective.
Having the dish head face a direction with purpose will add a more human quality.

Thanks for the input and especially the red lines. Looking at it now, you're absolutely right.

just checked out your thread for the first time, and i really wish youd draw a lot more often!!! your art, especially once you picked up the new shading and highlighting techniques, is really pleasant to look at! your attention to detail is spectacular and your ability to capture depth is pretty great. let's see you more than once a year, this time!

Possible colour help, I think the palette could be unified more, since they seem off in an otherwise brown enviroment. I filled up a layer set to Color mode with the brown, and lowered the opacity to ~40% (which is still pretty high). You can notice the difference this makes between the first and second pics below.

Considering the reflected coloured light on the floor and arms ... is a bit trickier for me. I was hoping that the colours from above were slightly coming through on the surfaces below (using a combination of Color and Overlay layers) but they're not coming through as well as I'd like. I think this may be something best left to experimentation.

Here's a ImagineFX workshop which handles a picture with loads of colour (most of the colour work is in stage 2),
and from ImagineFX October 2012, page 72 onwards I remember there was a better tutorial for colourful pics.
