I'm hoping that this SB will kick start me into doing more practice and hopefully get better at environments, I'm gonna try and do weekly updates! thanks for dropping by.
They are all great!! I really like the composition of the first one.
Shows us the vastness of nature!
Thanks for dropping by Rolo, glad you like them, I'm planning to do more dynamic stuff later, hopefully!
I really like the first and the last one,I think it's difficult to draw trees, you did a great job on those
░▒▓█▀▄ Please critique my SKETCHBOOK ▄▀█▓▒░
These are all very interesting. I envy your environments and your painting skills. I can't wait to see more.
Is that a warnet nest from Richard Garriott's Tabula Rasa? Is that lava flow on planet Arieki?
I miss being addicted to Ultima. I haven't really been in the zone since the early nineties, and I was hoping Tabula Rasa would do it for me, but in spite of a terrific effort by Destination Games, it wasn't able to absorb me like Ultima did when I was in my teens. I'm just so jaded now. Being seriously addicted to a computer RPG was a peak experience for me, and to think there are actually clinics to help people get out of such addictions. I want to get back in!!!
Sorry for the digression... Your enviros remind me of the concept work for Tabula Rasa. They're kind of speedy looking, but if you spent some more time with them I'm sure you could take them to a similar level of polish. Sci-fi is cool. So is fantasy. I look forward to seeing you post some more enviros in the future.
Awesome work with color, especially on the last one! I like the guy looking like he's gonna poke the gigantic glowing sack with a stick.
These look really good, I love the feeling of vast space on all of them. If you don`t mind, I`d like to suggest adding a focal point on your future ones, a part with sharper brush strokes and a bit more detailed? I`m sure pretty soon your enviros will look breathtaking, just keep working on it!
Very, nice environment's i which i could do it Keep it up!
Sketch back if you'd like...

G A I A - yeah trees are difficult, good way is not to get bogged down with every single leave and just go for overall shape and form, cheers for your comment.
alexson - thanks dude, gonna try and update
Izer - glad you like them, that last one was alot of fun to do
kvanzant - haahhaah thanks man, but i still got to improve alot, hope you visit back!

Palidoozy - yeah he is actually a scientist wanting the goo for studying, dangerous job

Raiderukkus - mate you probably have a good imagination we all do, but if you are feeling uninspired try going abstract first and just play around with shapes, sooner or later something will hit you, and you'll have a nice piece.
maria riaz - cheers Maria, that city scape was a good practice, as i had to also get perspective correct to a degree. i'm planning a new city scape will take time though, thank you for your visit.
NewGuy22 - hey there, cheers for the comment man, well i spend sometimes a few hours to half a day on these, some of them i did over a number of lunch breaks, I get only an hour for lunch, but sometimes it's a good thing as it keeps it fresh.
Vulgar` - thank you very much, I hope you drop by again.
will try and post some more works, lunch time has been preoccupied with reading Dorian Grey as i want to finish the book b4 i c the movie!
one b4 i go to bed, hope you guys like, later
wow man nice! my favs are the 1st one and last one of the first post you did, but they all really nice also like the very last one, love that red flag. pops out, but still not too much, well integrated
Some really good enviros man! I also like the first and the last one of your first post. Very atmospheric.
Keep up the great work!
Matt Levert - Glad you liked it dude
Spaggen - thank you for you comment will try and do more
one b4 i hit the sack.
Some reaaaally lovely atmospheres created. Gorgeous
it makes me feel inspired (and im pretty sure thats not how i should spell this word )
wish you fun hitting the sack
DK_sketch - hi, cheers for having a look, I've made some custom brushes, I find them most useful with city stuff, like windows etc.
Lateman - thanks for the nice words, contrast is always a tweaky thing, as i sometimes go to far and have to tweak it back, but when it's right it really makes a difference.
Pixiebrush - thank you very much, glad you enjoyed them
GETBUCK - Don't worry about spelling, we're artists thank you for your visit.
gonna get some work done on the weekend hopefully!
Some nice pieces here LMK.
How much thumbnailing do you do to start with?
I agree with PxelSlayer about focal point. I reckon it would really give
your paintings such as the 'hive' piece (last image on your 1st post) a real punch.
I'm a bit of a sucker for epic atmospheric paintings...
