Toxicpanda's Death Note

Hey, getting pretty nice here.
I can see troubles with those landscapes, I'd suggest studying in that direction, keep doing those thumbs

get some mirror self portraits along with some basic facial proportion studies going, sounds cheesy but mirror practice can really boost up your skill cause it's more difficult than you think at first.
for colors i'd do some simple studies from photos, you start understanding color transitions better along with values and hues.
keep it going, you're making heaps of progress so don't slow it down :)

sooo true man, agree 100% mirror studies are very difficult, but they pay off and photo studies for color def help out a lot, and she has improved so much I'm glad to see how far she has come :)

Something I worked on last week.


*Sickbrush- Thank you for your suggestion. I will work on self portraits with mirror- Never tried that before-so it will be quite challenging. Also I'll work on photo studies.
My problem is that I always want to finish something, I hate leaving things uncompleted, and thats why I was doing so many "finished" paintings instead of studying. So next week I'll be working on that a bit.

*Nick- Thank you.

Keep up the work!

Great work! My tip would be to concentrate more on the cast shadows, and making sure you push the hard edge they make in comparison to the softness of the other shadows. Really helps describe a form. Keep working hard, don't watch too much anime :D!

My first time using clay , loved working with it. And I'll try to use it more.
Its the easiest way to understand shapes and texture. Also-Its super fun.

I didn't do much this week because I was sick,but still I managed to make few sketches. I wanted to make next week a sci fi thing study-but I'm going to study more chinese and japanese architecture, details and culture.
Thank you Dimitri and Vices.

I worked really hard on this one. At first I wanted to sketch some portraits,but I remembered that I should probably work on architecture more,but I didn't feel like it. And so I started adding details and connecting things. In the end I ended up spending quite a lot of hours on it,but I'm glad I did. I learned so much while working on this.

hello, the butterfly headress illustration is fantastic, some major improvement from your first post.
Keep doing those architecture studies as they will pay off, it becomes more obvious to me with each day that the stuff you like doing the least is what going to make you improve the quickest.
Never stop!

This was a 10 min sketch while I was waiting for the bus as usual. I'm traveling almost 4 hours a day , because I live far away from my college. And I wish I could draw in busses but I cant because our roads are so shaky that you feel like you've been in rocket like a box flying to moon and back. But oh well... Also I might be a little bit late with my updates,mostly because I have my exams and I got a job as lead artist in one TCG. I'm really excited about it,and the only thing I can say is- its science fiction themed and I'm going to do loots of work that you will see once game is relesed. Thank you for your support .
