Nice work. I think the first bird one is my favorite so far.


#22

I’d suggest you concentrate on B&W, to master working with values. I can advise James Paick’s gumroad “Environment Basics”, it helped me a lot, when I started. Also as it was said before me I can advise adding some difference in edges, between hard and soft, it will benefit your work greatly. Good luck, and keep it up!

Day 8
“Santa”. I think I have not enough movement and I don’t like the background snow. Well, another day of practice.


#24

Santa is working hard, he can do it!
Good.


#25

where should I start ? Santas face expression hilarious lol XD lifted my day :smiley: The lighting of the snow and its movement, makes the image dynamic and interessting :smiley: very good job


#26

Also loved the snow movement! You made it really dynamic and the santa is funny, ehehe


#27

Thanks, guys! I want to make him happy as a child again, and lose few pounds! :cool:

Day 9 / Somewhere at the top

Day 10
Small Cabin - I am going back to practice tonal drawing. I don’t have enough time to dive into colors yet.


#30

That bike is looking good! Tonal drawings are good practice, it helps with color later on :slight_smile: The snow on the cabin is very nice!


#31

Day 11

Playing with tones and learning few things


#32

Santa’s cousin, Joe.

Real character .

Got some shape to it, too.You could consider placement of teeth along hidden jaw lines.

Looks good.

I like the bird pictures.

Raven in the snow - nice feathers and rendering of the bird.

Quail in the reeds - or whatever bird that one is. Reed reflection in the water is interesting. The whole watercolor look works.


#33

Good shoot of the head! But i would advise to use less blur or less soft edges of the brush for some shadows


#34

Day 12
“Goodnight”


#35

Day 13
Kidnapped Santa


#36
  • RRrrrrrrrrrrrr!!- (Sound of wind.)

#37

Good work on that santa in the last image :stuck_out_tongue:


#38

And now who will deliver the Christmas gifts?:eek:


#39

Nice to see your progress! To hopefully add helpful commentary, you often use pretty dark values, maybe try a wider range of values?
