Ohh boy I made a thread.
So here's my most recent stuff.... Wait wait wait, introduction first. I'm m3nace, I'm 16 years old [edit: screw that, I'm 17 now! A big boy.], I'm from Denmark and my dad's a graphic... Graphicer... An artist that works with lithography, japanese wood cutting and other kinds of 'graphies. That was all.
So here's my most recent stuff:
Frog in the fog. An intrepid frog going on a journey. Jolly fun to make.
Batmanman. Way more man than a batman. I think I need to do something about the value in this to improve
the depth, by making the darks darker the closer it gets.
I also see a conflict between his right ear (our angle) and the dark tower in the background.
Dragon scout on the steppes.It's really small actually and my scanner is shit, thus some of it might look really weird.
Dragon rider painting... Painting. Every time I try to put eyes on this guy it's all ruined.
He's a real pussythief!
Slightly older stuff (or stuff that I've posted before):
Stuff from a star wars play by image rpg:
I should also scan my lifedrawing drawings some time.
Ok I'll just leave you with my da http://emir0.deviantart.com/
Right then, carry on.
Tell us more about the Frog in a boat dude, please.
But here is some recent digital stuff I've been doing!
First is a minimalist (more or less) poster that is part homage to Chrom (if you haven't yet, you should check out his posters) and part a piece of a star wars fan project.
Next are some mugshots for the same project
and they requested it be in a jrpg style soo, sorry it's a bit horrible and she looks like a retard but
Here's an avatar for a friend's brother (I think it is safe to say that I now have a fan)
Same style as mine, check it out matching avatars.
And here's a thing I did while trying out different ways of using brushes
And just so my pumpkin will have a space in my thread
Working on that poster was like Christopher Nolan must have had it working on inception, jeebus a box within a box within a box.
edit: here's an update
We live behind the trees there, right next to the lighthouse there's a small spotter cabin (not the black ones the yellow one that the tree is blocking)
edit: I'm getting the impression you think I meant like a military base with guns and shit. It's not exactly that, the transportation thing I'll have to work on though - there's supposed to be a small hangar in the cave beneath it. It's rather a small observational outpost/lookout
Thanks for the help so far lads!
I think I need simplifying this or something, it gets way too cluttered around the hands.
It's a really cool character concept, and I'd love to see it tightened up some to completion. Also the eyes on mister goop are distractingly simple compared to the style of the rest of the piece.
Here's a 3D sculpt I'm working on, I've also got a lowpoly version of it with a normal map of this baked on. Going to upload tomorrow!
First are two small drawings I did (about 12 times 10 cm) A frog warrior (arhermmm THE frog warrior) and a wizard whose head is an animal skull
Half a life drawing. The hands are fucked up and it really does look better in real life
A colorscribble of a shiny wonder horse.
And a square meter of my home
Last I want to show that I used to be a funny guy, I made this joke when I was 11 years old and I do still enjoy making these kinds of jokes where it only slightly suggests what will eventually happen.
I found the version of wind in the willows I grew up with. Everyone seems to love the older version but I really like this one.
That still life of the window is great.
Edit: Draw your hands.
That exercise where you draw your hands without picking up the pencil
Or draw your hands finding only the most basic 3d shapes
Do sheets of these in all different positions.
I've only done a few pages, and I've seen vast improvement over what I used to call hands.
And with super quick colors just to get an idea
A guy in a robosuit
A selection of faces I did from random shapes
And the 20 mins which is also in the Resolutions thread
I'm not really good at handling contrast. My colors always get too bland
needs more bear

I don't know which one I should choose! Edgy or softy? Crits are also welcome, mind you though that it's a wip.
Like on the helmet/backpack guy a few posts up, his scarf could have highlights of yellow or orange, instead of just a lighter and lighter red.
I'm changing the armor to oxidated bronze but I'm having difficulties with the neckguard and the shadowing+shading around that area.
I also tried following ewa's suggestions.. Succes?
A little texture or some more shadowing would help to really pop that out a bit. Reference different bronze finishes-- this is just one page of examples. Different chemical exposures can cause different oxidations.
(I don't mean to be pushy... I am a technical consultant for a company that sells sculpture supplies: I actually do consults on "how to patinate metals" as part of my day job so I nerd out about it a bit.)

A little update on this one as well as another wip of some tengu-like people. I just don't know about the colors, it gets way more intense when it's just black and white...
Maybe the colors just aren't tense enough but I wanted them to be slightly faded
