Both from references. Another color exercise. Hopefully this shows some improvement. Assistance welcomed.

the colored shirt doesnt seem to work right with the curves, and the green eyeshadow looks a little strange... makeup and tattoos are so hard to do :P maybe you could post the ref?

Hopefully you can see this, if not, I apologize. The woman here chose to wear pale green eyeshadow. But I liked the skin tones from the lighting, so I thought I give it a try and draw a colored verison of it. I'm sorry about the prints on her shirt, so focused on just drawing them, failed to draw them fit to curve.

This is a very nice sketchbook and you've shown some definite improvement. It always motivates me to see such great sketches and studies, keep up the good work. I'm sorry that I don't have time to go through all these and offer any advice on particular issues, it would seem that you're doing very well on your own though with practice. Nice work.

Hello again. I know it has been awhile since I lasted posted, so here are some new sketches. Not much has changed. Taken from imagination and references, with one color study.

A character concept with a not so simple background, but gothic loita inspired. Not the final, but something to work from. Suggestions and/or criticism welcomed.

These are good, but I think you need to put some more variety in your faces, right now, they all look really similar, male or female.

Thank you.

As in times past, it's been awhile. However no huge post today, just two pages of clothing designs.

Hey, never seen your stuff around here before. I like your style, very clean curvy lines.

However I think your studies are a little stiff sometimes... Maybe try using the curvy lines to your advantage, and get a bit more expression/movement into it.

Billov: Thanks. I will try to put those curvy lines to good use.

I know this one is below standard, but I'm trying to keep the motivation going.

I am really liking these heads for some reason. They remind me of Shin Megami artwork, which is one of the only japanese styles I like.

I think these would look so much better if you used a H pencil. The sketches look like they would benefit a little better with sharper lines.

5te: Much, practice. Thanks.

Billov: Thanks. Glad you enjoy.

Noir Proxy: Thanks. I agree with you about the 2B pencils. They can make some rather thick lines, which and detract from the cleanness. I will aim for sharper lines.

A character concept.
