So, I'll try to keep this thread updated with the latest of the work I feel confident enough to show other people. I reckon it will mostly contain digital illustration, but we'll see. Hope you like it, and feel free to comment or critique if you feel like it!

So, I still feel like this needs a lot of work (especially the hands and the pouches/bags needs to be improved upon. Probably the background too!!), but there's only so much energy you can put into a single piece - at least for me.

It's a good try, but I feel as though there could be more done on your fundamentals to improve the overall piece, I'm guessing you're aiming for a strong light based painting?

Studying light types would help you with this, a great book I can recommend is James Gurney's Light and Colour: The Guide for Realist Painters owo

That's a nice start. Looks like you've more or less got the basics. Let's see some more!

Thank you both for replying so quickly!
I agree, NesoKaiyo. I do feel as whilst my drawing might be lacking, my real issue might be with color and value. I have only just now started painting.
Thank you for your recommendation, I will try to find it somewhere! :)

Wanted to render it out for a while but then kind of got frustrated and ragequited on the drawing.
Probably not gonna continue with this one, but slapped on some color on the messy lineart and uploaded it here anyways.

I do agree with Neso, though

Thanks :)
I agree as well. I go figure drawing once a week to study anatomy and gesture, I'm studying values at least once every day.

Working on a new series of pictures called Undergångens Tidevarv, which essentially translates to "A time of Ruination".
This first picture is called Cyprianus Förbannelse, or "The curse of Cyprian".
