Why is this so painful?

I sincerely wish I was better at digital painting (or whatever you prefer to call it). I find it very frustrating. When Shaun Mooney came in to talk to us, I found it quite enlightening and his work really impressive - especially when you consider how fast he does these drawings.

So, I have tried to incorporate some of his techniques and things he talked about in to the work I'm doing at the moment - I've tried blocking out shapes and building on them, flipping the canvas while I work and trying to 'imply' things with brush strokes rather than finely draw it. Well, that's what I'm trying to do! I've started on my GasMask man and I thought I'd share what I've done so far - which I'm actually quite pleased with. Feedback would be appreciated, but please be gentle!

I've drawn 'a line' under the robots (I will post some images of them up here at some point) and moved on to part 2, so here are some of my drawings so far.

I spoke with Josh and we talked about what to do for this part and 'homework' was set to draw, draw and draw some more and we'll work through the designing process for a set of characters.
