I did a quick overpaint for your chow.
It seems that you used very strong and dark colors for the background which competed with the character, always make an Hue/saturation adjustment layer and put the saturation all the way to the left so it will become grayscale to check your values real quick. without good values your paintings will not speak visually and will be hard to read like in your chow, what I did is I brightened the background with an brightness adjustment layer to make your character pop.
and by the way that is not a bad illustration, your coloring has improved for
sure good job, keep practicing
כמה עוד למנייאק?
Thank you, i don't think that i could win a Chow (at least not now) i'm looking at it more as a practice, but it's nice to see some votes for your picture too
Thank you for the repaint mate, i know that i've got still lots to learn especially in painting digi or real and i'm thankful for all the support and the critiques .
עוד 9 חודשים לחפשש!!!!! אוג' 06 ממש אבל ממש עייפים!!!!
Here are some pencil sketches...
wow massive update dude, your pencils getting better and the girl faces some of them are gorgeous. when you have the time go to http://www.posemaniacs.com/blog/ and do 60sec or 30sec pose sketches, it's crazy how much it pushes your gesture and anatomy understanding, been doing it for the past 2 days and I must say it helps a lot!
סחטייןן, אוג, 06? פחח איזה צעיר, אוג, 00 פה
Awesome pencils, I like them alot!
Got no crits I'm afraid, sorry!
I love your method of rendering with pencil. That being said, I think spending a couple more minutes correcting proportions and doing some planning might get you better results for less work. Also playing with a few more body and facial types would give some variety as well. Keep at it!
nice controls on ur renderings
Danny -Thanks mate i'll do it
לא נורא הפז"מ דופק עוד 8 חודשים!!!

Pixie Trick Thank you, yeah i konw i draw mostly same body types and faces...gotta work on it.
andres333 Thank you
Ain't got my scanner right now and been playing WOW for the past week - got to level 19 and i'm kinda tired of it already...oh well back to drawing....all i can think of is drawing now are elfs and orcs...hhhh
here is my try for the latest chow 207 - it's suposed to be a military/field hacker...any help/comments would be appreciated.
Sweet pencil work.
good chow brother! again same problem like your last chow the character is competing for attention with the background, reduce background color saturation bring focus on the character.
What I did here Is I added atmosphere in the background with a soft airbrush and at the same time reduced the strength of the darks which was too strong, then I added some warm color from right because it seems like you have too much of cold going on so it can be a good thing to bring in some warm colors, it might come from a fire or an explosion or something.
Then I used color dodge for the computer monitor to give it a better effect and covered it with a soft brush.
Finally I felt it could have a better impact if I darken the whole image a bit by using the curves adjustment layer to emphasize the character and bring in a more suspicious and intense mood to the piece, watch his butt it's a guy right? so watch out not to draw his butt too feminine. this was all done in photoshop because I know you are using painter mostly right?
Now look how crazy your piece looks man! and I barely spent 10 minutes on it...
render it out and play with the effects at the end when you got the basics down, also don't forget to check your values by turning the whole image into grayscale.
if you want the original PSD file to see the layers and effects I added let me know.
We should do a collab dude maybe do an open canvas session or something.
Whoa I'm inspired to do some kickass tech piece now...
Talk to you soon!
Baron Flame Thank you glad you like 'em
teapo WoW is fun but it takes way too much time, and time is what i don't have these days.
I use an old Mustek scanner i don't remember his number' i"ll get back home an tell you the number...nothing fancy though.
Sycra Thank you
Danny Thank you so much for the help! I saw your comment only after i "finished" and posted in the thread, i almost missed the deadline...phhh...army stuff takes too much of my spare time, so i really didn't finish the pic.
I"ll try to play with the values and the background, it does look so much better in your version.
About the collab- just name a subject and יאללה lets try.
Here is what i posted in the chow thread.
Looks good! the details in it are awesome, dude you are truly improving with your digi stuff which is great.
I'll try to contact you so we can find a time to do an open canvas session or something.
ahh... haven't been checking up on ya ;3 love how the chow turned out and the WIP steps are really helpful. yeah i'm using a mustek scanner as well but not sure if i have the optimal settings for scanning drawings. crazy imagination going on with those last pencil works mate!
Danny Yeah your probably right, gotta work on those painting skills too..just had too much work at my base recently, i barely have the time to draw.
teapo Thank you , just play with the settings till you"ll like what you see...it takes some time but it pays off in the long term.
Oh well some sketches...used Danny's advice and made some 60/90 sec sketches in Posemaniacs...enjoy.
Tried to make a sketch for this week's chow..but had way too little time to makeit in something normal.
I love your pencil work, so energetic!
I quick note on the last chow you posted, don't be afraid to really push the lightning to extremes. I think the piece would be a lot stronger if you'd pick one of the lightsources you have, probably to one from the screen, as the main one and just pushed everything else back. It would make the piece a lot easier to read and strengthen the atmosphere.
It's been a while since I have last posted here, and I noticed that you have mixed both greyscale and full color in some of your artwork. Plus, I have been improving on your digital painting skills, along with you doing stuff you haven't done before. In other words, still as great as always!

Here are some more sketches and works...
and here is some Manga Darkchylde fan art,
found an old sketch and painted over it.
I liked the soldier... it could be used as a promoter to make young people to join the army...
the painted piece has some nice colors, lower your opacities and try to blend more.
keep it up bro
Danny thanks mate
Ricardo Robles Thank you
Been working around the clock for the past week on some army work...

Oh well as soon as i"ll have access laptop i"ll post the digi stuff too, for now here is a sketch page and a contest entry for Penciljack.com.
