peterwhite: Glad you do .
Voodoo_Mama: Thanks, I will spend some more time on one illustration at some point, really trying to get down my rendering/fundamentals now though. If you see what i mean.
Here's a really bad plane study(looks like shit). But whatever, you can always do another one and so on, so it really doesn't matter how it turns out as long as you always try to push yourself ... i guess

Nice values and linework.
I like the way you use brushes.

okay sorry for spamming my thread here but i'll be gone for a while so will not post something in a week, here's my almost final. Cause you know it's never final xD. I can even see some tweaks that can be made right away. but need to get up early tomorrow. So this will have to be it
Hope you enjoy them as much as i did creating them heh. TIME TO PUSH MYSELF moaaarrrr CYA
Edit: Will still be working on this guy though. It has a long way to go before it can be signed as a legit finished piece.

Rough Repin study. Not sure why i did it in the bottom of the page, kinda stupid and therefore i couldn't draw the whole thing .
Just went to the national museum here in Sweden, those Russians really knew how to paint ;O. Was awesome to see Repins (only name i can remember right now) and all those other sick Russian paintings in person.
Large and small version
Some stuff done lately
Gonna study more. Tank
thanks for visiting my sb man appreciated you make some real cool stuff its clear to me you know your ways around photoshop! Which is great, u should know how to use the tools u work with.. good stuff man! keep up the studies to make it all cometogether!
RBeek: Oh thanks a lot man, yep I'm kinda behind on those studies hehe xP.
Noro: Glad you like my stuff . Trying to go for a stylized realism look eventually but most realism. Or maybe you could call it epic reality.
School started now again -.-. Well here's a quick one hour thingy, sketch and current state.
Man i keep making new stuff ... Gotta stick with one and finish it at some point bah.
I used some textures which probably is obvious, but i like using them. Hope it's not cheating heh. At least i sticked with the sketch this time

Somehow I like the texture work in the latest painting, even if not all shapes are reading very well. But there is something interesting about it and I like the colors you used.
The environment in post #126 is very cool. I love the broad brushstrokes! Even if I have no real idea, what is in the foreground. But it just works like it is.That's why I like it even more.
Looking at you other digital stuff, I think, it's the blur that doesn't really fit. For examble in portraits in #132. IMO hard brushstrokes would've worked better. But it's good to try everything to find out what you like most =)
Valyavande: Thanks , i will keep that in mind about the blur, and see what works best . I've used blur (filters) in some of my stuff, but i think i only used a custom soft round brush on those portraits, but it seems to have gotten that effect anyway . Anyhow glad you like some of my stuff.
You can leave a comment if you want to i appreciate it.
Just some random mess. No fancy Photoshop tricks this time, just pure 100% opacity/flow and a brush with pen pressure. Probably nothing interesting

Omg, your grasp on volume and planes is amazing, it really shows through your brushwork. I love how organic everything looks. TvT I think you could use some more perspective practice though, some of the vehicles you've done are reading strangely (or maybe it's just me???)
Hey you! Yes, you! Crit me!
My CA.org Sketchbook 1 Last page Bashing much needed and appreciated!
My daily art blog (all the junk and personal crap that my CA sketchbook doesn't have)
Feel free to shoot me a pm anytime~
your paintings are awesome. especially like the brushwork in the yellowish painting
Howie: Thanks !
PontusEuxinus: Thank you!
Here's a new illustration in progress current size I'm working at is 7680x4320, if someone would want to know that ;o.
I saw you drawing along time ago on Jtv, it was like a shaman type concept. I think spoke to you about adding a satchel with a strap running over his shoulder.(my nick was timmyboy88)
Anyways awesome stuff !
