Thanks everyone!
@Otto: I use Photoshop, and have been at it for 3 or 4 years?
Compared to most artists, my progress and improvement is horribly slow, which bums me out. Goes to show I can't be lazy and just have to practice a lot more.

@nathanielmilburn
Thanks, and I really enjoyed going through your site, very nice stuff!

Alright so, the forum rules said artistic nudes are allowed, so here's a figure study.

Light jab at SWTOR's bad designs.
Mainly was testing out what, if anything, I've been learning lately. Turns out not much, gotta do MOAR STUDIES

Speaking of Imperial Officers, can I make a request of you to draw Grand Moff Tarkin?

Oh wow, your art is awesome. I just recently starting doing digital painting. The way you color and shade looks very realistic. You're really good at replicating things.

Outstanding artwork in this thread... i know you are using referencing and what not, but the silly high standard of work and use of colours is unbearable to a "wana be" artist as myself... you sir have talent :3

First try at Still Life.

Also, I have a few images bordering on the, well, erotic, but don't have any places to upload them.
They're permitted on the art portal, right?

Damn, that looks so realistic, I thought it was a picture at first.

Yeah, feel free to post them in the portal.
You can even post them in your thread, just be sure to note NSFW :P

Man, this has to be the best thing you've ever done ever. Like I doubt even the Bob Ross picture is even a minor testament to the awe-inspiring Squirtle Squirt.

Speaking of which, loving the way you handle both line and paint. Hate to be some guy who rides your dick, but this is some great stuff you've got here. Even the fucking weird stuff like that /v/ request. Nice thread, man.

Hah, thanks a lot.
I'm actually pretty down about my artistic ability at the moment (When am I not?)
I think I need to apprentice under some people or something, certain concepts just aren't clicking in my mind on my own.
Have some crappy doodles to go with this post.

Nice bewbs. Off my first glance, I actually thought this was a photo. Looking closer, of course it's not, but still! Good job on that, very lifelike value n' stuff. I can tell you got kind of lazy the lower you got in the photo, hehe.

Crappy doodles? CRAPPY DOODLES?!? I only wish I could make awesome characters like this! I love the stylisation, line, colour, all of it! You should try out making a comic with characters of this style or something. If they're crappy to you, it shouldn't be too hard to draw them over and over, eh? But yeah, I actually really love these.
