I like how much character your faces have. Many of them look like they've had a troubled past. At the moment, I think the bodies of your characters could do a better job of matching their faces. The exaggerated proportions of your characters' bodies seem out of sync with the relatively realistic proportions of their faces. This may be deliberate, but I'd like to see what your work would look if the bodies of your characters were as grounded in anatomy as your faces.

Bumping it with an OC I'm in the progress of revamping ^^
Any pointers so far? I flipped it quite a lot and revised the face all day //sweats
I think I'm finally happy with the face structure

Finished

Just thought I'd bump this thread starting with some character designs for a comic I want to start working on
I'm unsure of what her name should be-

Bumping with a wip and honestly I haven't done a whole lot of pieces this large but I really want to start honing my anatomy with the male figure.
I referenced a photo for the pose and I am dreading those hands-

continueddd

Nice pieces!
It looks like the values on your digital paintings could use a little deepening in terms of contrast. I would recommend doing studies where you start blocking out just two values. Just focus on seperating light from shadow. And then from there add another one or two values in between. It would help you to really focus on the form of your subject as well.
Also sometimes it looks like the colour you use to shade with is just a darker version of your base colour, which may make things a bit grey and flat-looking. So definitely play around with hues and saturation there.

It's also a good thing you aren't avoiding hands! It's best to think of hands as just another subject. The more you draw them, the better they will be. So take every opportunity you can get. xD

Thank you for taking the time to critique my work! I really appreciate the words of advice. I've definitely dabbled with using cool colors for shading in the past and I'm definitely going to delve back into that because I agree, it does make it more interesting to the eye.
I'll probably give that practice you mentioned a go and see how I improve on my shading and lighting techniques ^^

Sooo I'm hoping I don't get in trouble for not censoring it-but I mean, it's not pornography.. //crosses fingers;;
Ehm, I see that maybe I didn't draw her boobs hanging down enough from the angle she's at-but it's more a concept sketch than a finished piece ^^

Some practice with cooler colors contrasting with warm ones. Probably gonna do another where it's more in your face? Like BAM orange tones and blue tones haha

Bumping with a traditional creepy

Done without a reference so the bones might be off, I've been working on doing it free-handed

I'll go ahead and post another so I can separate the studies.
Here's a practice of eyes, mainly the iris, didn't add lashes because I wanted to focus on the iris itself

So I've started on this piece. It's much larger than I'm showing. Mainly wanted you to be able to see it as a whole and ask for critique in the lining up of the facial features, the style I've chosen, the layout at the moment before I start to add details and finalize the piece. It's not really any character of mine, just some good practice on the details of the female face

More progress, left eye looks weird to me

Another piece I started while waiting for feedback

A doodle I did today
I don't usually draw guys with mustaches or stubble so this was actually really fun ;;o;;

Bumping this with something I'm working on painting-
I decided to go a different direction than I'm used to and started with a canvas that was a nude color and built it up from there-

Aaaaaand finished!

having looked at your stuff, its great to see that you're improving and experimenting with new ideas. There's a lot of variety and drawing different things is always going to be beneficial. I especially like the colors of the one with a mustache, a good use of contrasting colors and blending.

Look forward to seeing more work! perhaps more full figure stuff?
