I like the tone and the mood of your paintings.
cool colors on ur enviros, especially the cave - i rly like that one
would like to see some more figures from you ) keep goin
thank you all for the great feedback i hope to grow as an artist with this community looking foward to many more pages of progress and not progress ^ ^
Still Life (Acrylics ) couple hours
should have pushed the blue shadows more IMO the photo quality is not that great bad lighting oh well enough excuses here it is
Brilliant work Zorcron! I love your use of colors in your landscapes especially. I would love to see you refine some of these. keep up the nice work.
Last words are for people who didn't say enough when they were alive.
sclark thank you sir , i difinatly will keep up the work posting some quick stuff tonight probably .ive got to do some sketches for a painting im doing on a game so i should have a bunch of thumbnails
figure gestures too im thinking
gotsu thanks one of the reasons i like that cave painting is the use of soft brushes il definatly have to toy with that a bit more

Thanks for dropping by!, keep it up! I have a food feeling about your environments in a few years
it may be due to the apples but food feelings are a good sign i hope ^ ^
Thanks for checking out my SB!
Your apple study looks great, but don't neglect your backdrops. The way you've given the apples so much definition against an undefined and seemingly blurred background makes them appear as giant MEGA APPLES.
For your digital studies, try to remember, less is more. Be more conservative with your color selection and blending lest things get too messy.
Keep at it.
heres a WIP with ref want to see how far i can take this one just starting out
anatomy crit please the sooner the better before i make things too refined haha
i know its got problems also but im fixing as i go ( lips arnt looking so good )
Edit : after realizing the fact i have yet again used brushes way to small its in an early stage so il prolly pump the size back up

still having trouble with the lips , eyes / color il keep at it
going to tone down the backround a bit make the person pop out more ,need to squint more im not seeing the values correctly
(Edit) i also see the head is tilted more in the photo then in my drawing hrmmm
its very very messy i need to keep some colors and throw some away ! artisticly i should probably cool these shadows to a nice blue
the face should also be a tad longer but i belive it is too far in to the painting to correct so i will keep it in mind for a latter painting
and suck it up ,fail
the nose is pretty one sided to the side with the light looks too thin il round it out (typing through the problems i find helps me sort of verify that i have found them sorry haha )

I like that last one, it feels like a step in the right direction, for sure.
doing some sketches il finish that one up tomorrow its geting late !
I'm glad you say you were using too small brushes. I think you go to small too fast either for the urge to scribble, or trying to get detail too early. Either way you'll save time and quality by using a brush way bigger than you think you need. Also, check the values on this latest one, you've mainly put the shadow around the center of the face rather than the right. Keep it up, I see too many people just stop and give up.
hey there. thanks for the comments and advice, i'll work on what you said. as for some portrait advice i think you should do some measurments with the proportions of the face. for example, the wide of the face is equivalent to the lenght of 3 mouths, or the distance from the eyes to the tip of the nose is the same as the tip of the nose to the chin. little things like that help to make the face a little more recognizable and realistic. also remember dimples and little details, specially in the eyes.
here's a method that you might find helpful.
awesome enviroments though
Muscari np , thanks for the input i will really take these in to consideration il do some research too
SamC hey man well i definatly will not be giving up so the only option is to get better ! yeah the urge to scribble is great but a bit more time and il have banished the small brushes from the early stages of my paintings
and you're right about the value i messed up and caught it im going to change a lot in the next stage and hopefully finish it up tonight.
wish i had time right now though
:edit : been caught up with this game project and i need to get quite a bit done so personal work is on hold for a day or 2 untill i get this worked out

Your painting of the mountain that you also use for your avatar is really nice, great mark making and good use of what you mentioned when you posted on my sketchbook. Also, further up, the painting of those ships at sea, great atmosphere created from the use of colour in your skyline, works really well.
good stuff so far.
DERBZ'S SKETCH BOOK
hey with the pick of the Asian i see you went all over the place, as did i with my first ref pic. What i suggest you do is click on the color picker, go over the lights and darks and understand what makes them that way. You painted black on the dark parts of the guys face, but i can tell that its a dark redish brown. Im not saying use the color picker on your paintings, just use it at first to have some base for an idea of how the colors work and react to the environment.
hey Krato , i understand what you are saying and it looks very messy right now but if you do look closely due to the lighting
situation much of those dark values on his face look pretty dark redish brown to me
ive actually been trying to refrain from using the color picker if learning to observe is my aim.
then i kind of think using the color picker in most situations is not really observing is it ?
(he is not done yet ive still got to spend a decent chunk of time on him but this project im doing is not allowing me much time
I think what Krato means is, put the colour down the you see instead of putting down a red and then going over it in black to make it darker. And the colour picker is worth using to see how the values and the colours change, very educational if you observe it.
hey everybody here is a somthing related to the game project im working on il have time for more
studys once the demo is done *thanks SamC i understand what Krato was saying now = )
