CG Cookie Livestream - Live Critiques - 9.30.15

Artist: Tim Von Rueden (vonn)

Moderator: Joe Chico

Today is the first live critique livestream we've done as it has not only been heavily requested but I believe it could be incredibly beneficial to know how to give critique that is constructive. We have 9 pieces we choose to be the subject matters today with each receiving around 10 minutes each. Come join in, ask questions, and be apart of our first live critique stream of what may be a more regular thing we do here every so often. 


Want to ask a Question before the stream? Ask on our Community Post HERE!

The Hour stream begins at 2 PM CST (-5GMT)

You guys have helped me out so much, I love the tutorials and they have really helped my art! Before watching CG cookie; my digital art was like this (2013)
The land outlasts the blood we bleed by DogmaticLoki
 I always drew wolves or horses because I was a big wuss. 
But this is my latest drawing and I am confident enough to draw even people!

Just have to let you know! Your tutorial/Resource images have been a HUGE help! With simplified breakdowns, you've made the smaller details easier to pull off. My art has taken LEAPS in seconds! So thank you!!

How about a course aimed at people who learned to draw and are having a problem making the jump to "paint" type techniques needed for Digital work?
[ like me ]

Also I tried to join cgcookie yesterday and it kept rejecting my user name 
 are there rules to follow, or just a lot of good names already taken?
