Yesterday I had to make a complete system re installation to get a virus out of the way as well as getting my computer in order since it was fairly crowded with stuff it didn't even need. The downside is that in my idiocy I forgot to save my works in progress on Photoshop, and its extra hurtful since one of those WIP's was nearly finished and done for posting. So in all honesty, i was pretty bummed out and mentally fatigued yesterday because of the followup restorations I had to do and still doing, but its going abit easier. 

Though, there is some sliver lining to all of this crap. I have many ideas for original works that I haven't quite come around to yet, and the amount of pictures taking up space have been taken out to make room for more, so in essence, out with the old in with the new. Today or tomorrow I may try to get Photoshop reinstalled and my pen and pad reintegrated with my driver since its program was taken out as well. So I'm hoping for an easy and swift restoration of my main art tools, as well as everything else I lost during the system/windows re installation. 

Anyways, I know not a ton of people might read this but I enjoy taking my mind off the mental stress and all that.

Study
Sooo, I decided to come back around to making study paintings to improve myself mostly by the suggestions of people who know a lot more than I do on the digital arts critique page fallowing the flop of a painting I made before. Anyways, here we have another Rembrandt piece titled 'Sarah waiting for Tobias - 1647', and I really don't know much about the story behind it completely. This was primarily done to practice facial structure, placement, light on skin even though the reference I had skin that was almost snow white for some reason, but it was the highest quality I could find. 

Anyways, not much to say for a study so I'm not going to add a bunch of junk writing and things like that so... Hope anyone and everyone who viewed this piece enjoyed it even though there's not a ton of features, and any critique is welcome.

Alright then, first and foremost, I know this painting is sublime to a disaster and many things contributed to it that were mostly my fault but critique is still critique.

The composition of this piece was really meant to be in a kind of traditional military portrait style along with a single reference for the face, but it certainly wasn't a good one. I used mostly strict line art to create the composition and placement but I don't think I'll be using line art again in the near future because of how much it restricted me and just how troublesome it was later on if I wanted to make an adjustment. 

I really wanted a clear light source in the painting but I just really did not know how intense it would be nor how it would react to certain textures of objects. Hence why I didn't really know what to do with the face after a while since that was primarily the first thing to start falling apart beyond salvage or repair.

The only thing in this piece that I can find some sense of pride in is the texture workings on the shoulder plates and the helmet since I was able to explore it quite a bit along with weathering and lighting, but everything else I just really didn't know how to translate into a believable texture.

Anyways, I implore anyone who has a look at this painting to take a full swing at it. I really don't mind if you sound too harsh or not, so by all means, give a full broadside to this thing and tell me what you really think and how I can make improvements on future works. 

Thanks for viewing/critiquing 

Enlisted Sargent Guardsman by SethWoll

Oookay then... I really want to put it out there first that I really considered not posting this painting at all. This isn't quite the comeback I wanted after by PC had a heart attack and a lot of things contributed to this painting being crappy overall. The composition was bad, the references were bad, I was getting very mentally fatigued and stressed that nothing was going right, and every now and then I thought about dropping it completely later on. But I guess the time and effort would be wasted if I didn't post and receive critique and judgement and I would still be almost be at 2 months without any content. At the same time though, this is not the content I wanted it to be.

But anyways, here we have a 40k Imperial Guardsman of the Steel Legion of Armageddon. I wanted to do a full short story behind this painting but because of its outcome, I decided to leave all of it out since the image as a whole is just... broke really. If you do happen to find enjoyment in this piece, then thank you very much, if not, please send critique my way. Thanks for viewing and I hope I can get some better stuff out soon at better quality.

Discovery in the Dark
A fun little piece I decided to paint for Morbidly-Chopped morbidly-chopped.deviantart.co…  The characters name is Banshee

This was pretty fun to make even though the style I was going for isn't really something I'm all too much about and I probably wont be pursuing it in the near future, but still, was very enjoyable to make :) 

As a side note, this painting has a little 'easter-egg' if you'd like to call it that, and its not all that hard to look for. If you think you found out what it was, comment below or relish in your discovery for yourself :P If you end up becoming completely stumped for the answer, feel free to ask and I'll share it... Yeah, I love putting in little secrets to my paintings and drawings sometimes, lol. 

As always, critique is always welcome even though the art style of this piece isn't really something I'm going to do at all, as said above, but its still welcome. Thanks for viewing.

You could say I've been into art since the day I was born, and since then, I always had an urge to create and improve my skills. Just last year I began to do digital art, and I really do hope to become a professional freelancer, director, ect.
