    Hey, here's the latest picture I finished in my attempt to get better at drawing and photoshopping.

    It's Cicadacon, from the Tripredacus Coucil, with a bit more human-like porportions.

    I tried for more highlights and shading like someone suggested last time.

    Anyways, here it is,

    you're getting better... but just picture a light source and stick to it...

    best bet is to get a lamp (preferably one of those kinds you can move around like the lamp from the Pixar intro's) and put it directly at a toy... you can see where highlights show up and where shadows occur....

    a little trick Josh taught me back in the day
