Subject title: Ragamuffin's Sketchbook (NSFW maybe, sometimes)

Hello forum! Peace to you all.
I'm a full-time artist as of now, and my focus is on illustration and comic books. My objective right now is to start my own webcomic, for which i'm currently writing and designing for, along with my overall art studies. Wish me luck and all that :lol:

I'm gonna start my sketchbook with some no-reference hand sketches.

I really envy your studies, they look very realistic.
Where did you learn about lightings ,shadows and reflected lights?

Hey there! I recommend buying James Gurney's book Color and Light: A Guide for the Realist Painter, and look up his blog posts (http://gurneyjourney.blogspot.com.br/). And i remember this tutorial: http://androidarts.com/art_tut.htm it quickly goes over the basics of pretty much everything. There's plenty of other material out there on the internet of course!

Also, this bit of information: Every object that is hit by light becomes itself a secondary light source. Pay attention to where surfaces are facing, particularly those in shadow; it's gonna get reflected light from objects that are facing opposite of it (like, shadows facing down get some color from the ground).

Those heads and gestures are looking pretty good and those metal studies look pretty solid.
Do you have any suggestions on learning digital painting, I'm kinda... lost on it, kinda want to learn a more painterly style but not sure how to approach that properly.

Thanks! I'm not the most confident painter either, but as for general advice, i'd say try to not do what i did in the second painting in the last post (the guy in the robes): it looks muddy and messy. The advice that i've got is to use big brushes to block in large shapes when starting the painting, and then mind your edges (hard vs soft) throughout.

That gestures page without faces is great! I think you did a fantastic job conveying emotion and meaning with really simple figures. Also as everyone said, your armor work is impeccable.
