Well, I'm back.
I'm not sure how many time I was without submitting anything in DA and I don't watch it in the statistics because I'm a lazy guy. Anyway, it has been quite a lot. But I didn't expent all that time drinking beer and playing Fallout (at least not the whole time); I watched and readed a lot of tutorials, especially those focused on coloring. Also I learned how to improve my lineart, both using vectors and other helps in CS6 and GIMP and redistributing the thickness of the lineart to achieve more "dramatism".
Talking of the Devil, Photoshop and GIMP had been great assets in this improvement. In past deviations I used Artweaver, wich is an excellent software, especially for beginners, but by using the other two I began to unfold my potential and learn a bit more with every single picture I made.
So, I submitted two new deviations; quite different in thematic and style. The first one in a post-apocalyptic world, using warm tones, with a relatively realist shading (except for hair, don't ask me why, just considered this way was better) and a uniform color and tone composition. The other one clearly fantastic, in cool tones, using cell shading and playing with illumination and atmospheric deepness, also the contrast between reds and blues jumps to the eye.
I don't know if you would like it. But to me they're jewels. The best works of the last months and, "personally", my best works ever.
So, enjoy it if you like and as always thank you very much for waching me. You're too kind!
