I really like that goat/ram dude on that last sheet.

Regarding the painting from the last page, I wonder what would happen if you organized your detail and non-detailed portions.

I didn't do a whole lot of altering on this, just a bit of cleaning up on some of the brush strokes on her skin. I understand she's meant to look really dirty and grungy, so this may or may not work specifically for what you're going for.

Basically what I'm suggesting is that instead of everything having a lot of busy brush strokes all over, what if you had areas that had less texture or rendered detail? Maybe even patterns like detail - simple - detail, or simple - detail - simple. It might make things pop out more and easier to read.

It is so hard to go back to ball point pen after you had several weeks of digital drawing with the wonderful undo button.

Yeah I get what you mean. I think it all goes together with what you said last time. My brushstrokes aren't well organised and I tend make to many tiny brushstrokes in places where detail really isn't need. I tend to render for the sake of rendering. I need start thinking more about where detail is nescessary and important and where it takes away from the image as a whole. Also colors, anatomy and so on... blah blah. I really want to learn this though. It has always been a skill I so admire. I don't need to be photorealistic artist but this good sense of lighting, edges and detail distribution is somethin I really like to achieve. I'll check out some artist's video how they approach these kinda topics. I think videos can be helpful if you don't look a them with a the hope they'll teach you how to paint haha.

Anyway quick updates, because I'll forget it on the weekend. Warm ups, sketchbook pages and a digital drawing.
