Looks nice. Your biggest thing I think you can improve on is the way you draw anatomy. Some of your proportions are off. A great resource is
http://www.posemaniacs.com/

I use this site as reference when ever I'm painting or drawing the human body. Also take your own pictures and use them as reference as well. I find that that really helps. You can play with different types of brushes too. Try to avoid the soft round brush unless you are trying to blend something. Keep it hard all the way. Hope that helps. If you have anymore questions, just pm me. I'll be happy to help. :)

I made another thread but the title "New Here" doesn't really attract much attention. I guess this is the place where I post my art and you guys give your opinions, crits, etc. Also, any suggestions would be cool.

This one is my latest painting. I don't know if I'm really done with it, I always keeps coming back to make edits and changes on these.

I'll post more some of my older stuff soon, and anything new that I paint here.

Okay cool. Thanks for giving some feedback. I agree, my biggest weakness right now is anatomy, and coloring. I'll try to incorporate your advice and check out that reference website.

Update, using pic of Olivia Wild as a reference for the face. Colors looks really different on my computer vs on my ipad. Weird.

Added eyes, made some small changes, going to completely redo her breasts, and the background. Current background was just me messing around thinking of ideas, I plan on redoing it. I have her sitting inside a bar, or maybe at a table outside or something. If I have it outside I'll still be able to have a nuke going off in the background. Eyes seem slightly off to me, fight redo one of them.

I still think that samurai piece was pretty damn epic! Good work all around man. I can definitely see progress in your skill.

Thanks, yeah a lot of people seem to like that one a lot. Funny thing is that it's one of the ones I didn't use any references on. Also, I really like painting in black and white, I'm not that great with color yet, it's much more complicated.

Upadate on the face, realized I fucked up the proportions of everything. I need to spend more time making sure I get my anatomy right next time. I'm not giving up on this one though.

Hopefully it's turning out pretty rather than creepy. Please warn me.

Your facial anatomy is spot on (about as spot on as humans get) and I'd totally keep with that. The hair, though, is distorted to a degree where it drags the entire picture into the uncanny valley territory.

Not going to patronise you or anything, just thought I might share this tip: flipping the canvas is a great way to readjust your eye and spot mistakes.

It's cool, that's the kind of feedback I'm looking for (well not when it's finished, but while I'm working on it I want to know what's needs to be better). Thanks.

When I said the proportions were messed I meant I made the head too big for the body (noticed after shading), and had to do some resizing. Yeah flipping the image is a good tip, I keep forgetting to do that every once in a while.

Meh. Loved Mass Effect 3, but... um... The ending left much to be desired.

Done quickly in a fit of nerd rage...

Took away that dialog... Made the pic look worse than it was, far too sloppy. Now to do an epic Tali portrait.

Her head is coming out lovely and just needs an anatomically correct set of neck and shoulders for support. Example. That photo is the best I could find for now. I know her hair is covering her shoulders but I think you'll get the gist. So far it looks like you are great at observational drawing!

I'll look into editing it eventually, but honestly I'm sick of working on that picture.

Started doing a portrait of Garrus. :D

Yep. I think I'll do Edi and Tali next. Although I really want to do a reaperized Illusive Man. Not finished obviously...

Yep... Hmm... Who should I do next. Tali? Edi? Illusive Man? Javick? Jack? What? Not sure if I'm ready to post it in the portal. Seems everyone notices something I overlooked...

Bought a new painting app called Brushes. It lets me replay a video of all the strokes I take while painting. I did this yesterday just testing it out.

I call it deep glow.

Tali Unmasked wip. I'm tired of seeing all these pics of Tali with a serious face. She should be smiling, I just saved her planet and banged her...

Update, I shouldn't be painting... I should be researching for my paper. Oh well. Still not finished of course. Also, I wish Bioware would tell us what color she is. The photo they supplied is so vague.

Another update. Seems people can't agree on Tali's color. I'll just go with purple since that's what I always wanted. I may try to lighten it up some more.

Yeah so I pretty much changed her entire face and hair.

"fixed" the eyes on the left. Man lining up 4 eyes on a face that is turned back and to the side is a pain.
