critique for color and values
I have serious issue with color and i consider myself a complete idiot at it ! Values are managable but still hard. I try to do many value studies and have recently started color studying from masters rather than real life since i can copy colors well without understanding it

[Looking for feedback] My first (good) caricature!
Hey, proko community! I am hot off the 100 heads challenge from Ahmed Aldoori, and noticed one of my main issues for most of it was capturing a likeness. For my first caricature, I chose comedian/youtuber Trevor Wallace (because I drew his hands 300 times in different poses across three days) He has a pretty distinct facial structure, with a very square face and prominent cheekbones that go down to his chin. I've attached a picture of the finished painting, the thumbnail sketch, and the original reference (a frame from https://youtu.be/FApbkER3uIY?t=13). I think that through the process of drawing, the head's pose changed slightly. Overall I think this was a pretty successful painting! The only major flaws I can see are that there's a slight tangent around where his smile line meets the nose, the brushwork is a tad sloppy, and the hair could be a bit more interesting. Maybe with some more color notes. The colors are also a bit flatter than I'd like, though I guess that's just a product of how I work. I like the very polygonal shape language, though. Looking Leyendecker-y is usually a good thing! What I may not be so keen on is the fact it looks like I'm aping Court Jones (the person who teaches the caricature fundamentals course here) a bit too closely. I hope that's just a product of using the same process, which can be fixed as I get deeper into drawing faces and heads. So, all in all, I'm proud of this painting, but I'm entirely willing to believe in a couple month's time I'll look back at it and wince. What do you think? Where could I improve? What am I doing right?

Old car, fixed the wrong way
In this one I used Koh-I-Noor color pencils and Staedtler pigment liners. All feedback on what I can/need to improve and suggestions are welcome! The colors on the photograph I took are a bit washed up, that's the best I could get with my phone camera.

WIP: a New Year, a New Illustration
Every once in a while, I like to attempt a project well beyond my current ability. Last June, I came very close to fully rendering my first complex digital scene. But I did not *fully* render that paint, because I was doing it for a contest and ran up against the deadline. Anyway, it feels about time to attempt another full digital illustration. If it is not too obnoxious, I would like to post occasional WIP updates for it in this thread. Attached is a rough sketch and initial (rushed) value study for the piece. I came up with the sci-fi/fantasy concept fairly quick. I was thinking of Miyazaki's "Nausicaä", and similar works, when I made the foreground scene. At this stage in the process, composition is most important. I think I worked out most of the issues that were present in the initial version of the sketch. I did a lot of pushing, pulling, moving, and resizing. However, if anyone notices any compositional shortcomings, feel free to critique them. It'll give me a chance to improve the piece. I think a proper digital painter would bravely dive straight into painting: starting loose, tightening up later on. I, on the other hand, will probably be refining the drawing over the coming days, especially for the aircraft, people, and architectural elements.

Two medieval characters
Hi and Happy New year! This is my work based on two medieval paintings from Prado collection. Medieval art inspires me so I decided to build up my characters from these paintings. The first step was to discover the naked figures from the clothed ones. Next step was to paint the clothed figures. After that I put both figures together in one picture and gave her a smartphone instead of the Bible. I would like to hear some feedback and advices how to draw tiles. I figured out some way to do that but I am sure this is not perfect way to do that.

How to learn digital painting or coloring? Grayscale first?
I've been practicing perspective, line work, structure, and anatomy for about 8 yrs. though the reason why It took that long is because I was studying the wrong things for a long time, additionally I was on and off about practicing because of life situations. I have here a drawing upto line work and this is always the furthest I can go when drawing since I little to no skills nor knowledge about coloring. Im thinking on practicing grayscale first before moving on to color, but Blending alone is already hard for me I tried it and its not smooth, you can see individual lines. Also idk what blending technique to use for a beginner. I tried shading a sphere and it turned out ok I think, though the cylinder is just, bleh. If Im gonna be practicing grayscale, which part of the sketch should I stop before shading? Or is it after line work or inking? Are there books or youtube videos that can help me out? cant do online courses for now since I dont have the budget for it.

Don't stay too far from the castle walls,
C&C welcome:) Been loving the work of Artem Demura. He worked on Mortal Shell I think. Liked This painting much more during sketching and planning I had a way more pronounced color scheme at the start that just devolved over time. Maybe should have stuck with it. Not too happy with the two figures on the left and managed to split the painting in half againXD with the big boulders:P What do you think?

OurPaint: A weird side project of mine...
Yes, just so it happens... Just would like to tell you guys I'm making this home-brew painting software. This is mainly to get around the somewhat-slow performance of MyPaint, and also to avoid too much cluttering in programs like Photoshop and Krita etc. I'm posting it here also on proko and hopefully there can be people interested in such kind of thing and may give some input too. This program works fully on GPU so it's observably faster in processing brush dabs, and I made it to support infinite canvas just like what MyPaint does. It doesn't yet have advanced color mixing like MixBox or other spectrum-based pigment mixing, but that should come later. I plan to share this project/program on the internet too when it's more polished and useable, then this can be a super lightweight alternative to most other heavier art programs.

Valley #1 (also an sRGB note)
A new painting I've done a while ago (Hey I'm posting on proko form again! lol after like Idk how long It's been busy :D) This was also from one of my older thumbnails, which happens to be dark. To me there's a bit struggle to control the exposure outside the window. The side note about the using very dark regions (value<16/255) in 8 bit non-linear sRGB would lose quite a bit precision when repeatedly opening/editing/saving the file depends on the software you are using. I was on MyPaint for this piece and since the canvas convert everything to linear brightness while working and when saving it would convert it back to non-linear 8 bit sRGB, anything that's really dark gets clipped and shown as mostly a flat color. Node in PS or Krita or some other tools they might not necessarily convert the canvas when drawing, but a lot of their brush tools do mixing in linear brightness, which would cause precision problem in very dark regions when your images are 8bits. I discovered this round-trip conversion problem pretty late, had to go into the image and redarken/lighten a lot of places but the result isn't ideal. So I decide to tell you guys to take node when you have dark stuff in your images. (Finally, just saw new episode of Draftsman S4 dropping? that's super awesome! Good job team!)

Experimenting with a Custom Round Brush
I'm loving the control I am getting with this. It's a custom alpha I made for myself for Procreate. Gives me some nice edge control while also layering well. It almost feels like airbrushing, but with more of an edge to it. Feel free to save the alpha texture to try yourself, and tell me what you think!! (You will need to "open original" to get the full resolution image.)

Self-portrait - digital painting
Hello everybody. I passed through the first digital painting lessons and decided to paint a self portrait (watching in a mirror, not from photo). I would like to get some feedback. (The expression in my face is terrible, that's true.)

Med’s Map painting basic shape assignment
This is my assignment for painting basic shapes in the Med’s Map course.. The assignment was to paint the same object repeatedly within a time limit. Any critique or feedback is appreciated. Also wouldn’t mind any advice on efficiently painting within a time limit, such as how to effectively capture shape and form. I try to use a checklist which I think helps but don’t think I was successful in getting the big shapes to read in the final painting.

Feedback on epic SciFi album cover please 👀
Hi draftsfolk! I am working on an album cover. I am pretty happy with this first draft. But for the high res version, I'll have to redo it bigger and better. Here are some of my issues: 1. Scale I want to add (the illusion of) detail to the figure to dramatize its size. I have to do something to the foreground figure as well... maybe push it back so it's smaller or bring it even closer to the camera for a cool foreshortening effect. What do you think would make a better composition? 2. Colours I want green to be the main and red to be an accent colour. But also have some subtle variety, so it doesn't look duochrome and at least somewhat realistic. It was kind of an afterthought, so it does not come through in the current sketch at all. But do you think this could work? Maybe by leaning more into a grey sky and greenery in the middleground. Not sure which colour could work for the neon lights, though :/ 3. Composition I struggle with finding a composition that looks good in the square format. Could you recommend an artist that nails asymmetric dynamic square compositions for inspiration? Any other advice is also greatly appreciated and paintovers are encouraged ❤
