really good work, speechless, exactly what i love in digital illustration...
I actually try to take back my left eye who felt down after viewing your amazing website's artworks ...
You got a really good sense of form and scale.
hey pringle! been a fan of your environments for a good 6 months or so, was excited to see a nice full post from you.
Ive been noticing a trend with this technique of textural pallete-knifey shapes to get quite contrasty, almost like an overexposed photo... do you think that this is just the nature of the painting, as you speed up production you loose the buttery quality you get from a more organic method (like say the way justin sweet paints)... enviros seem to be getting more and more 'systematic' which is in part a flowon from artists like sparth who popularised using big geometric selections, and docieu with his pallette knifey look... among others...
its not bad or good, just an observation, was wondering what your take on your own 'style' was... whether you ever wished you could slow down and take a more 'buttery' approach. Dont know if ive used the right words... hard concept to nail i think.
Anyhow the work is brilliant... really like the way you lay out your dominant shapes, it all flows across the composition really nicely. I find my eyes have a consistant pace and arent thrown around as is the case in some enviros.
Fantastic detail. Great job.

M@: cheers man, that means a lot to me!
I really liked to see that video you did of one of your speedpaintings.
Form: Interesting, I think there has been a lot of rip of from what you call the sparth style. Sparth is really the only one who can pull this of (and he is amazing at it!). In my opinion is a bit of a shame. It's easy to make fancy effects. but to me the true value lays in drawing, and yes I guess I like a more painterly feel. Its always a balance, and deadlines are a factor. But if things get rendered down to the last detail it looses a lot of its energy IMHO.
Dunno know if that made any sense
Mr.Blonde:cheers mate, I think you have improved a lot in the last year!
Dan Milligan: I'm a big fan of your drawings, so this means a lot to me. thanks!

i love every piece of it.excellently done!
Your site is a treat and vast lessons abound in every piece. Particularly love the POV's, such as in "Structure" among your misc. pieces. I'm falling into the image......
Can't wait to see the new stuff.

great work man!
I always imagined putting that much detail into a landscape piece would maddening. So, are you insane or just insanely good at what you do? Either sound like fun to me.
My sketchbooks. Don't be nice. Be honest.
My main Sketchbook!
Cool.. Paintings.. I feel like I am in a movie
It's great to see the different perspectives of a place, and the order you placed the pieces flows nicely. I enjoy catching glimpses of the sky in your third piece where the roof is broken. Simplicity of shapes in combination of more details textures works out well.
great light, tones and depth
I saw these on your site a while ago and they still blow me away!
You pretty much nail all the stuff I like most about environments.
These are so sick man! I've always loved your work! Nice updates on your site too! Thanks! These gave me a lot of inspiration bro!
Life is a long lesson in humility.
