to be honest i start this sketchbook to get myself off my lazy ass and start wokring hard.
For myself i just got outta highschool and am working in a IT Shop in the city earning money and the other time i spend with my girlfriend gaming or drawing and painting( not as much as i wish i was)
I will post almost everyday and try to get the best out of my copnstricted skill...
any critique is welcome.

Heres my update. designed a lance/speer, carried by the knight did some exploration of weapons... hope u understand how the lance works, my visual explenation is very bad...
a bird living in the castle and being used as mount. saddle design following...
also 2 landscape pieces i did early on.
this is the princes with her "skirt" and her staff as well wearing her crown. She is the supreme person in the castle and is worshipped like a godess. the sky knights are in her service.
Steampunk hedgehog design. Stalker of the moors.
photoscrap and then paintover
I really like the last one you've overpainted, has a great feel to it. What you need, in my opinion is, some more experience with photoshop. some things just dont work. For example like the stone structures in #6 You just painted these mountains and then slapped the photo texture over it withouth tweaking it. Furthermore the forest looks copy and pasted. You need to include some variety into it. Anyway I see a huge progress in your last posting

THanks for the kind words and the critique. i have still quite some problems with cool rock texture (eg #2)...
btw freaking awesome sketchbook you have
Your environments are great. That last one is awesome.
Your figures aren't as convinving. There's inconsistency in the treament. I think just as you create more time will take of that.
I look forward to seeing more.

Seikfour04, this stuff looks great! I like your armour concepts. Especially the helmet designs. I'd say keep working on the anatomy of your characters, the conveyance of weight and perspective is key. Keep it up.
The sky opens with a word, and that word is a secret. So loud this howling trumpet rains its song on ears made of paper and glass.
To improve on some rendering aspects of your works, try studying shadow edges in depth, it will give you a large understanding of how to render most types of surfaces.
You have some information on that around the forums on the tutorials/tips section if i'm not mistaken.
Keep working, !
@bearwith: thanks for the kind comments and thanks to mention what to improve ill try to do more perspective. as from february onwards ill do aloooooot of studies will take your points into consideration thanks again!
