Dayum hombré, I'm impressed! I have one crit though, your colors are messy, I suggest trying to clean up a bit.

But that is a part of the style. Actually, I like the messy colors.

nice art, gunther, you've gotten a lot better since you've been to NG...

i like the way you use alpha brushes to blend color...what program are you using?

LaserKarl, I've been keeping an eye on this thread and I must say that I'm very impressed with your works, even the ones you say are "fucked up". Granted they seem to have a little less niceness than some others, but to me it's all very well done work. Great work so far!

Personal favourite so far is your "Nah" piece.

Keep it up!

It's absolute quality, but to touch it up the tip of the nose could of been lit a little brighter, and the white of the eyes could of been whiter.

I'm not to fond of the colour choice on that one. I think more of a pink colour would've done it justice, the browny/red looks very sepia.

hey karl big fan of ur stuff. u may have seen some of my stuff around here maybe not, im pretty new... any way i have a small question....about colour :)

i would say im pretty decent at drawing and using photoshop and that, but i find it quite hard when it comes to painting a nice portrait....i tend to get stuck with what tones to use......i see the tones u use and u have deep oranges and purples and that and it all just comes together nicely....i was wondering did u have to learn an eye for colour or do you use some kind of skin tone reference?

and also i think im too afraid to use big bold colours thats y i think im no good and picking the right ones

I tend to just use colors that i think will fit, if they dont i'll try another. Its really not like i have studied colors and their effects for years. Im still just experiemtning.

That's really cool. You say that about colour but you are really good at showing off contrasting colours.. I don't know alot about whatever i'm talking about, but yeah. What I think you should of played with here is having the light coming over his shoulder so outligning him with light.

It reminds me of the black-country, place in birmingham named from all the black smoke from the factories. Cool picture :D
