Sweet! I made it to page two! Anyway some imagination sketches from my sketchbook and ps. My scanner doesn't work so sorry for any blurriness or general crappiness in picture quality...
@Akildee, I actually worked on it a bit more already, some of the little lights I added at the end were just not working. I'll prolly go in and add some defining edge work too. I really don't think the line tool or guides are cheating, but I've stubbornly tried to freehand things in the past. As much as I love digital, I have to admit getting good line quality with a wacom is a lot harder than doing it traditionally. And I agree, paintings that don't lose that initial liveliness are really cool. I hope my painting style develops into a very lively "painterly'' style someday. Thanks as always for the feedback!
A study from last night
Some semi quick landscape studies. Also a cube, a car I should bring way more finish to but I'm bored of, and a weird metal sculpture.
Some figure studies, the former from Sargent, the latter, Elvgren.
two shadow/form studies
a possibly finished painting
Nice work! I really like the small buildings/enviros in #32 and great colors in #36. c:
Please take a look at my Sketchbook! <- Comments are highly appreciated and returned C:
hey man, great works, I love your environments, keep them coming
this artist has some great you tube tutorials on how to solve the big blocking of the shapes an what to do with them next
It has helped me a great deal, maybe you will like his technique too:
Lol, I should probably upload more often. the loose bridge thing in the forest is a Dylan cole study i never finished.

Hi! Heres some new stuff.
And I've been messing about with oils as well.Here are two studies after jeremy mann(he's amazing).
Wow, I really love your design language so far!
I would suggest to do some more boring perspective studies (with boxes and such stuff). I'd suggest the Scott Robertson tutorials on construction and lighting.
Also, grab some anatomy books and do some proportion studies.
Your designs and compositions are so awesome – I really love them.
Keep up the hard work man
Thanks ecki! I'll def keep plugging away at those fundamentals...
A study from a movie still. lol I've decided to do a bunch of studies from final fantasy cg as I love their design and world building, even if all their games suck anymore....
A speedpaint I did yesterday.
A piece done in alchemy
From a photo
Some crappy characters, but I learned a couple process points.
A spaceport sketch.
Some random sketches
More sketches and a quick mullins study
Trying for looser brushwork and indication, for some reason its really hard for me.
A horrible still life, messing about with 2 values per mass then blending to get midtones
just some experimentation...
Working on composition
Hey, thanks for dropping by, a few notes:
- Try doing more line drawings, right now all of your edges have a fuzzy quality to them = not good. Try do some clean line drawings, they will force you to commit to those lines.
- It`s good that you are doing value studies, do more of those they are really important.
- I recommend trying to concentrate yourself on quality instead of quantity for a change of pace. Make 1 study instead of 5, but make sure that you really push it to be the best study you can do. This helped me a lot to improve my environments.
keep drawing ,
A creative artist works on his next composition because he is not satisfied with his previous one. When he loses a critical attitude toward his own work, he ceases to be an artist. - Dmitri Shostakovich
