If you search through my posts they shouldn't be hard to find. Here is the one I didn't finish in time, or it didn't relate to the topic or something :/

that looks great, you should do some tutorials on some of these, coz i have no clue with anatomy and i have had no luck finding tutorials on anatomies

I'd like to see a tutorial on your PS painting techniques. they are masterful and u seem to be able to crank em out at a steady pace. Brilliant as ever!

The little step-by-step I posted before is basically the extent of my painting technique.

Kinda bored :

so...is it kind of like a gray scale/channel under painting with hues overlayed to finish? I sculpt my colors that's why I ask, this technique is a lot more like conventional painting with oil. however u do it, it's fantastic. still jealous...

That's basically what I did for this, and I used the Replace Color filter to add color to the lights and darks individually.

Get the hang of it? You should be teaching others! I love your work and this thread is going to be visited a lot more by me. I especially love your paintings, like your warrior. Fantastic.

Now some figures with a little more detail. I really need to practice stuff like joints, hands, feet, clothes, and faces, so if anyone has any links for tutorials and stuff it is much appreciated. =D

Thank you guys, but these are only sketches. I still gotta learn a lot, especially painting.

Here is some skin tone practice :

Yeah definitely.

I know they were on the conceptart.org forums. I can't find the specific thread but it had a lot of good references.

Self-portrait, started at 3:50 and finished at 6:10-ish. Is that long?

The original photo is like 2 inches tall :3

I forced myself to finish this drawing tonight, here it is with my process. Please tell me how it looks. =)

Thats really something, I dont know anything about anatomy in art, but it looks flawless. More like a photo than a drawing.

Good stuff, but the eyes are a bit out of whack... quick hint: whenever *something* bugs you about an image (or even if you think it looks perfect), try flipping the image horizontally (the equivalent of turning a piece of paper over and holding it up to the light)... errors tend to jump off the page a bit more.

I've flipped your original and attached it... see if you can spot what I mean...

Oh wow.. I haven't visited these forums in almost a year. I'm surprised this thread has not sunk into the oblivion (maybe it did). And these images all seem so old now, I really hope I've gotten better since.

Thx for the advice. I've actually used similar methods a few times with this picture and others: flipping it, zooming in and out, looking at it through a mirror. I didn't see anything wrong then, but now with a completely different perspective it looks awful. Thank you for pointing that out. XD
And I really wish more people would try those techniques before arguing with criticism of their work, because sometimes it just isn't right and you can't see it.

Anyway, I think I'll share a little practice I've done recently to see how I've improved. Maybe if I start posting stuff here again you guys will help keep me motivated. I haven't been drawing much since classes started and my tablet's all dusty. I'll try to change that ASAP.

I started practicing with boxing photos to work on figures, faces, lighting, skin tones, etc.

BTW, I totally appreciate all the comments posted about my stuff =D

Here are a couple images where I got kinda distracted 1/2 way through.

I couldn't get the face right on the either of them.

And finally, here is a picture I spent a little more time on. I really had fun painting for once with this one.
