Been working on this for the past two days. Woman is getting dressed, startled by bug, kills it, is about to throw it in the fire. Kill it with fire.

Getting closed to finished with this one, still polishing it up and stuff. I'll put the finishing touches on it tomorrow when I'm not tired.

Alright I think I'm done for now. I'll probably paint on some armor and have it be an alternate version.

Alright, my thread sure has been silent except for me (something I expect by now), but it always bothers me when I don't get feedback, I start to question my judgment and think I'm doing something bad or whatever...

I might change her hairstyle to be something more feminine and 'pretty', but still keep it short. Also some edits and stuff I want to do before it's finally ready... But really, I love feedback as long has it's not non constructive troll comments.

here hair does look better in the first one, but honestly I wouldn't have thought anything was wrong with her hair in the first place so i wouldn't have thought to say anything.

As far as "silence" is going, yeah it happens. Yeah it kinda sucks. I used to care about that a lot more and things were a little livelier a little while ago.

But if anything your getting all your art in one place and giving the world to look at another type of portfolio.

Your work is fabulous so I we can't link skill=views. Before I click on your thread I already know im going to see something dope that I can't do. That's one of the most impressive feelings i think you can give another artists.

youre dope dude. dont worry about it : D

Your current work is lively with color. You make sound decisions based on your own observations.
Unfortunatly you have overlooked a critical area to improve on. Hands.
Your hands are lacking expression with generic positions or are hidden completely.

Yeah hands are definetly my weak spot at the moment. I'll try to work on that in future projects, also I'm taking a life drawing class in the fall so maybe that will help.

Did some work on the motoko piece (specifically the gun), but have mostly been doing an armored version of my last piece. I'll post it next. I'll work on getting the hand right tomorrow. I think I'm going to do an Elizabeth portrait so maybe I can incorporate some interesting hand poses in there. It's something I need to practice.

You may want to tone down the glowing blue interior of the tent. I get what you're doing with it: making it counter balance the fire, and using both the balance out the sky. In that regard the glowing works perfectly, but it's also causing another problem. It's a high contrast area that becomes one of the focal points; juxtaposing the bright blue on the earth tone tent pops the blue into the foreground, making it almost read like it's in front of the warrior.

Over all, I really do like the picture. Even though the glowy bit is a distraction, the strong X composition still keeps you looking straight at the warrior. I like how you handled the lighting, too. Not to mention how well rendered everything is.

Thanks man. I made some more edits. Maybe I'm done now... Maybe. Probably won't be noticeably different unless your looking for details. Just adjusted some lighting mostly.

Made some changes this morning I think it gives the picture a little bit more realism that it was missing.

Yeah man he's right work on those hands. Awkwardly drawn hands on a good drawing can be the elephant in the room ( art?)
A life drawing class would be a great opportunity to practice, don't pass it up!

Bird all the way. Started coloring her.

And hell yes I'm going to take the life drawing class, I see it as another important stepping stone in improving my craft that I should have taken last spring.

Was um "practicing some anatomy" and then started this. She'll have a bathing suit in when I post it to newgrounds. This has been fun to color so far. I've never done water before.

i would highly suggest you to take some reference for the water, as it's one of the most difficult material to depict. in fact at the moment there's an inner contraddiction: her body stance suggests she's leaving the pool but water's behaviour says she's entering it instead: there shouldn't be any splash, this due to the superficial tension of the water, which tend to "stick" to slowly moving objects.
