Hey Shelvs! Good work! I like your third one because it reminds me of Halo and Destiny. I'm glad you're putting your characters in full scenes. It's a great practice. I do think whether it's before or after you could try to explore different ways the character might look. (I do understand sometimes you just have to get a full image down!) I took your character and just tried to have fun making variations. I try to contrast each one against another so that I get to come up with something different each time. Even if a character deviates you could just keep exploring! For me, it's really just an exercise to practice better shape design- and if I get a character I like that's a plus.

Most of those concepts are done for my self which is why I mostly have one idea, and I usually just have a raw sketch for each of my different ideas. Like in the photos I uploaded. I do wanna try the technique you shown above, however I am easily bored and too judgmental when it comes to silhouettes. something I intend to work on. BTW can you teach me how you can quickly lay down ideas and what kind of brush I should look for specifically? I greatly appreciated your previous help, and awesome “thick boy” concept. I was inspired by Metroid and Halo. I wanted to make something futuristic yet tribalistic. in addition I would like to get some future tips. thank you

Hello there! I love the mood of these images. The third picture is my favorite I really like the depth :) I can see a very common mistake you are making which is that you are shading with black and white. It's very rare that you will see similar lights and shadows in nature because there are so many reflected lights, and even the light sources (sun, sky, lamp...) carry some colors in them. Here, I can show you an example. Keep up the good work!

I see where you are coming from , I try to mitigate this issue, but for the 3rd pic I just did it the easy way. i this picture you pointed out I painted the blacks afterwards because it’s night and I wanted to emphasize the light source. Thank you for pointing it out. I am in constant struggle to add some black to my painting, because of that I almost always end up witch high contrast works.

Hey Shelvs These are looking promising I think you could gain a lot from studying portraiture or at least the forms and planes of the face/head. Firstly it would help the believability of your heads. Secondly, I think studying portraiture helps a lot with a general understanding of creating form or even modelling form if you want to take your work to that much of a finish.

I took the class before the 2.0 update. And some of those works were created before I finished it

Really nice works! Love the concepts too!, for the colours i think you can improve it by exploring less saturated colours like your snowy art piece! I feel like you can make the composition better by making the mountain sillouette more distributed around and not just near the light source and also making it point to the main object to guide the eye better. Really nice works you've got!

Thank you, I will have to study a bit of snow landscape photos. I am struggling when it comes to color. I like picking bright color and putting colors where you would least expect them to be. It’s gonna be a while before I figure it out. Thank you for the advice
