Dude man, I think I want to cry. You work is Awesome. I want to ask what steps did you take to learning how to color in Photoshop. Nice~

Hi, Torei, First of all, thanks for the compliment!
Probably the first advice I'd give is to study figure drawing as much as possible.
Along with that, have a mirror with you while you're working on facial expressions. While I'm working on faces, I try to always use a mirror to act out the expressions, so I can "get into character". Photo reference can help if you or the director already knows the distinct character type to draw from, but don't rely too much on photo reference, but use them only to capture distinct personalities. Hope this helps!

Thanks so much for leaving your comments, guys! Much appreciated:D

Hi, I really like the composition and how you draw the expression on the face. I'm just curious issit possible to get advise on how to draw a faces like that? Do you use reference? And how do you find them? so it fit you thoughts and idea?


It's very very nice.~ T_T Love it very much.

Awesome paintings Charlie! I just read the graphic novel of Fahfrd and the Gray Mouser drawn by Mike Mignola. It was just an okay read for me, but the art by Mignola helped push the story forward whenever I began to lose interest a little. It would be cool to see your take on a graphic novel version.
