@wasgodx - Thank you! I admit that I was a bit into comics when I was younger. Some stuff must have stuck i guess. Thanks for stopping by! :)

Some progress on this one, having a hard time with the background/grass tough... I'm trying to figure out how I can make the grass blurry but still look like grass. I tried painting it, and then smudge it but that looked terrible, then I tried with a grass photo-texture, which looked okay I guess, but I was not really pleased, so i ended up doing the whole background green/blurry.. Anyone got some pro tips?  Rolling eyes, funny thought

Hey man, cool SB! :) You got a Chihuahua? Those are awesome little dogs. Sketch to latest WIP painting look good. Sorry, but I have no pro tips with backgrounds 'cause I am no pro. :P Sorry!

I like what I see here. Keep on practicing man, I wanna see mooooore progress!!

BTW, I saw you did the exercise where you take a master painting and use Image–>Adjustments->Threshold to make it into abstract B&W shapes. I'm actually doing some of those myself right now! Do you have any advice on this sort of thing?

@Mechanizoid - Hey man, yeah I got a Chihuahua, he´s great! :) Thank you! I don't really have any advice on the image>adjustments<threshold exercise, but by the look of your sketchbook I think you are doing the right thing, keep it up! :)

Update on the dog-painting:

Some progress, focusing mostly on skin. Hand and chest still has weird anatomy tough :P Original file has more detail, but I compressed the pic for the forum.

Mostly done traditional sketching lately, but i thought I should do a star wars painting for my younger nephew to give him this christmas. Almost like the one I gave his older brother last christmas of Darth Vader. But this time with Yoda, mirrored :P Just done a quick sketch of it so far based on some thumbnails i did last year, probably will change stuff on the go and i will not use the same technique as last year either:

Your stuff looks good. I really like that yoda drawing of yours. Just look out for your hands. They are really small in some of your work. Keep rocking!
