Awesome sketchbook, it's a pleasure too watch.
December 17th, 2011, 10:58 AM
anatomy is looking great mike, and last creature doodle looks promising puuuush it :D
December 17th, 2011, 12:48 PM
Damn, that inspiration you gave me right now, you're definitely one of the most hard working artist here, just don't get too comfortable, keep pushing yourself and explore new stuff, you repeat yourself a bit, here's some things I discovered keep me fresh, maybe they help you learn cool new stuff:
photography, media, design, art history, animal anatomy, car design, fashion design, oil painting.
Keep it up man, I know you will.
December 17th, 2011, 01:16 PM
next time you do an object from life please use hypercam (download off google) and screencapture he process with a commentary? :3 would make my week, I don't know how you find the time to do this much work!
December 17th, 2011, 04:07 PM

December 19th, 2011, 09:54 PM
dope stuff mike, love your dedication.
December 19th, 2011, 09:58 PM
Very awesome stuff. Just got my cintiq in the mail, can't wait to learn how to make great stuff like this! Really awesome, keep it up!
December 19th, 2011, 10:00 PM
Your piece has improved a lot since the crit, well done.
December 20th, 2011, 07:02 AM
Man you are flying!! Ridiculous levels of improvement going on here!
Sorry I can't offer any more useful comments. Though I will say that I've always thought you could do with doing some work on improving your sense of structure. With a bit more believability to your forms your work would skyrocket!!
Keep up the incredible work mate!
December 20th, 2011, 11:24 AM
I once scrolled too fast through this thread and my computer blew up from overloading-win.
Love the studies, sketches, colours, all of it. Show us more.

happy new year people :D cheers!
January 5th, 2012, 06:48 PM
What the f Mike?! These are phenomenal!!! The brushwork and colour usage is mind blowing!
At one point as I was scrolling down I thought one of the screencaps was a moving gif capture from a film!
Stunning work man!
January 5th, 2012, 07:50 PM
January 7th, 2012, 07:57 AM
MacTire: super thanks man! :)
SamC: WOAH <3 haha
WOA! quick update, trying to work on my brush strokes and experimenting new things, had a ton of fun doing those sketches haha, hope y'all like it :DDD
January 7th, 2012, 09:37 AM
I've been waiting for an update, awesome!
Man, the first time I saw your sketchbook I was like "Damn, this guy must be a professional.", but then I just realized you're 18 years old. Dude, that's such a strong motivation for me, you can't imagine that!
Faces look nice, studies are great, clean and solid pencil strokes...definitely one my favorite and most inspiring sketchbooks, thank's for that!
January 7th, 2012, 10:09 AM
Awesome as aways mike!
Really inspiring man. Feeling kinda lazy after seeing your sketchbook bro haha
January 7th, 2012, 03:22 PM
wait is that 2nd painting Ironforge? lol
January 8th, 2012, 12:56 PM
Sweet lines and studies! Really liking how you paint different textures and stuff.
I think you could work a bit more on putting sharper edges around focal points and stuff in those quick mountain paintings though. The gate thing that seems to be a focal point is a bit lost due to the bluriness. And you could work a bit on the structure of your faces, apart from that, super cool stuff.
Keep it up! :D
January 8th, 2012, 01:00 PM
Hey Pmike, all your practicing has really paid off! Now go and push those Environments to the limit they're really outstanding. Especially your light is awesome.
January 8th, 2012, 01:14 PM
damn, man, do you ever sleep? lol
January 8th, 2012, 04:00 PM
damn seriously excellent pencil work!im loving your arm studies
January 9th, 2012, 07:03 PM
I'm never disappointed when i visit your sketchbook, your updates are awesome, your working like a beast and your stuff is always improving. Inspiring stuff, thanks alot for sharing your stuff with us.
January 14th, 2012, 11:04 AM

January 14th, 2012, 02:17 PM
Awesome stuff man. Def. worthy of the win! I look forward to seeing what you cook up on this round! :)
January 14th, 2012, 04:45 PM
your gauntlet submission came out great congrats!!
January 14th, 2012, 04:46 PM
You just completely nailed it man <3
January 14th, 2012, 05:06 PM
I'm digging what you've posted since I last stopped in back in October.
Lotza kewl studies and pencils etc...like here (http://attachments.conceptart.org/forums/attachment.php?attachmentid=1340008&stc=1&d=1318272716) and here (http://farm7.static.flickr.com/6094/6302689800_405c85d8a4_b.jpg).
You captured the light here (http://attachments.conceptart.org/forums/attachment.php?attachmentid=1379634&stc=1&d=1323523795) quite nicely. And this one (http://conceptart.org/forums/attachment.php?attachmentid=1394710&stc=1&d=1325799011) caught my eye.
And last but not least your dragon pic in #289 above is VERY cool!
Keep up all the great work! :)
January 18th, 2012, 08:12 AM
Holy jesus FUU - Damn!
Where do I start... First of all your sense of shape is just astonishing, really like how you pull it off. The second thing is colors, I can't imagine anything but lots of studies, looking at references and learning by that to get those colors so interesting, vivid and still right. The third thing I guess is the brushwork, a real nice mix of sharp, soft and textures, really makes the pictures come alive.
There are lots to learn from you and by the way I saw the Gauntlet reimagined in Crimson Daggers, and it f-ing kicks some serious ass. Keep it up!
January 18th, 2012, 09:32 AM
Beautiful updates man! Love the vibrant colours!
January 18th, 2012, 01:38 PM
wow man! your leveling up like a nut!! your dedication to studies, specifically the anatomy studies is enviable. beautiful work man. really inspiring!!

Hey! I'm back to work, but still some time till uni starts again, also life drawing sessions are back! gotta study moar anatomy/form.
Focused this week basically on girls faces (color ones are from mind and grey are mix between imagination and refs).
Also a sketch of some water creature, don't know if I'm gonna keep working on it. Anyway, cheers guys and girls! :D
January 21st, 2012, 03:25 PM
Oh men, you are so added to my art inspiration bookmark folder!
January 21st, 2012, 04:40 PM
Bloody amasing! Damn, your so awesome for an 18 year old :/
January 21st, 2012, 05:01 PM
Damn Mike, how did your pencils become this good?! Gotta say that your faces from imagination look great, though it seems you rarely do males. But yeah, women are more gorgeous anyway, hehe!
January 21st, 2012, 05:04 PM
Color use, brushwork, texturing. All fantastic. I have no criticism. Great for inspiration!
January 21st, 2012, 11:50 PM

January 24th, 2012, 06:31 PM
Seeing people my age being this ridiculously good is somewhere between extremely inspiring and terribly depressing. Thanks for that!
Aside from occasional saturation issues I have absolutely no critiques.
Just keep up the awesome work!
January 30th, 2012, 08:01 PM
thanks for the comments guys, sorry for replying you individually! <3
Posting some recent stuff, the bloody king was made for the Bloodsport 4 contest, more info about the challenges here :Site (http://crimsonbloodsports.blogspot.com/)

Very cool stuff man, great brush strokes in that SP.
January 31st, 2012, 09:09 AM
Agreed with Metal Fingers, real nice brush strokes, resembles an oil painting texture very well.
January 31st, 2012, 09:28 AM
great! nice to see you applying these studies that well in your finished pieces! hat off! :)

January 31st, 2012, 10:47 AM
Your stuff is really inspiring, being the Dagger we all want to be! Love the creative way you applied your studies to the Bloodsport challenge but the Blood King is a total creep.
January 31st, 2012, 12:53 PM
Gaaaaaah I absolutely love your style. Fantastic handling of plane changes and form (in both paint and pencil!) And you work like a machine! You're really inspiring me to work harder and make more time for art, even with university stuff going on.
And holy crap, man, those anatomy studies! They look -amazing-! And there are so many of them. Where do you get your references for all of those?
January 31st, 2012, 04:08 PM
Great work! I really like the sense of color and your use of brushstrokes. Those studies are definitely paying off in your imaginative stuff. Keep up the great work!

Super hot work man, love the form, colours and solidity. Not much crit to give just keep going. Studies are really sick make sure your mind is active and learning why is like this (im sure it is just trying to give a constructive something) :)
March 2nd, 2012, 07:03 PM
I love the way you create volume on your forms. I just drool over your work dude. Sorry if that's creepy. It IS meant to be :P

June 20th, 2012, 11:34 PM
Eae Mike td certo? Muito loko seu sketchbook.
Minha unica sugestao eh o braço direito da Lina, acho q esta mto colado no corpo. O cotovelo dela poderia ser mais aberto ou alguma forma q pareça um pouco mais natural. Vc ta mandando mto bem! Eh isso ae!
June 21st, 2012, 02:16 AM
I came here because you asked for a crit on FB but don't really know what to say, I love them all haha Maybe in the last picture, there's something "weird" the left arm of the guy too short or confusing in perspective, or maybe it's a bout the position of the elements. Awwww those colors <3
June 21st, 2012, 02:45 AM
awesome stuff mike, beautiful colors like everyone else is saying <3
just a few things to watch out for with your compositions though: careful with the placement of characters in a piece. on the last one the guy on the right is being pushed out of the frame because he's so far to the left. also, the two characters are confronting each other but they're not interacting compositionally. think about maybe having them overlap each other a little bit. and the one with the man about to be beheaded, theres a lot of empty space in the foreground and the focal points of the two mens' faces are both on the left side of the canvas. move things around or crop it so that the eye can flow around the whole image.
also, sometimes your secondary light sources distract from the focus of the image. for example in that last one the girl's blue glowy hand is what my eye is drawn to because thats the ONLY blue in the whole image and the contrast is very high. and the one before that of the blue monster guy: that yellow light on his arm sticks out just as much of his face. think about what you want the viewer to focus in on. by all means, keep doing what you do with color, its gorgeous! just try to make certain areas more subtle and reeaally think about how you can place things in an image and i think your pieces will pop a lot more.
you're crazy good already and i would love to see what you can do to push yourself even further.
hope this was helpful, cheers man :)
June 21st, 2012, 03:51 AM
duuuudddeee finish that beheading piece!
June 21st, 2012, 05:14 AM
no crits from me. keep doing what you do, we love it.
June 21st, 2012, 05:33 AM
Lovely updates dude. Those colours are intense!
June 21st, 2012, 05:48 AM
Awesome updates mate, my only crit would be to play with saturation levels. At the moment everything is really saturated, by learning to control this better you can direct where you want the viewer to look and focus on areas of interest. Just my 2 cents, and yea, finish the beheading piece!
June 21st, 2012, 05:51 AM
yes please <3
June 21st, 2012, 06:23 AM
I can't even handle how mad these colours are.
June 21st, 2012, 08:29 AM
I absolutely agree with Cris . Keep at it , we wanna see more! :D
June 21st, 2012, 09:54 AM
INSANE! Beautiful work as always Mike! You truly have a way with colours!
June 21st, 2012, 10:13 AM
your lighting is awesome, love how you deal with saturation
June 21st, 2012, 11:55 AM
Ab-so-lute-leyy lovin it. Your colors are an inspiration. You're starting to develop a style that's unmistakably your own and that helps in being noticed and remembered. You're gonna be one of the big ones!
June 21st, 2012, 02:44 PM
Your sense of light and value is amazing... I hope to become as good as this very soon.
June 21st, 2012, 03:18 PM
duuuudddeee finish that beheading piece!
I agree, that piece is very promising. Sweet update dude.
June 21st, 2012, 04:21 PM

Hey man! I love you concepts!! amazing, your coloring and style are just mesmerizing! Keep up this amazing work!!
June 25th, 2012, 09:21 AM
Stunning work here. Your color palettes are insane, very rich and lively while maintaining a natural look, it's very impressive.
June 25th, 2012, 10:13 AM
Nice colors and volume , I like the way you materialize the shapes in your painting.
I think most of the time you find a good balance between values and colors, which is hard and you are good at it.
But I think you could push further your design especially when you make characters.
You have a good knowledge of the different materials because of all the study you have made.
I think you could enjoy playing more with it in your character design.
Stunning work as always.
June 25th, 2012, 11:31 AM
Hey! Thanks for the support guys :)
