    Gulli05- thanks i'm happy with it too! i do have a few adjustments to make but i'll get to that after i get some other stuff done.

    MonkeYoakum-thanks for the crit always helpful, yea I think if i were to keep working on those, a lot of stuff would be ironed out. my computer is feeling sick at the moment

    Quinn Simoes- thanks, i still have a long way to go but i'm making progress

    Jorge Gecov- thanks,

    I was going to post some more work i did last night but my computer just shut off without warning, and right in the middle of a paintig i was working on!i'm assuming its from over heating and over use so i'm giving it a little nap before i start up again, but i'll definitely be posting more stuff today! thanks everyone

    thanks Trollfar, a making of, of that piece is in decembers 2dartist magazine,
    I'm back again so here are two things i did last night. I was tired of working on a commission so i decided to paint a face, then i realized that was a waste of time so i created a character design instead took about 2.5 hours from 3 to 5:30am, I've realized how horrible I am at integrating simple backgrounds into character pieces lol, i'd love it if anyone had some quick advice on that guess i'll have to take a deaper look at some awesome character artists.

    heyo! thanks for popping by my sb your new posts are lookin great.

    as a suggestion to your issue with creating backgrounds, sometimes I just start drawing shapes and it kind of turns into something... you know, like cloud-reading or something of that sort. It doesn't work with everything, but sometimes it will help you come up with an idea.

    I love the grainy look of your images. And the fact that you can cover such a varied amount of imagery is awesome.

    for background.. I think the goal is composition still, so i would break it up using tone, texture what ever to break it up, and some one said offset your focal point helps, I found a loomis book free online that talked about composition and ways to create it from nothing, it was interesting and might help you. nice lookin scorpion dude btw.

    here are those books, creative illustration has the composition formula in it. cheers!

    Prophet of Death- thanks
    BohemianChaos- Hi thanks for the advice, i'll try it out!
    Glory666- thank for the words of encouragement! although at the moment there are a few hundred other artist on here that destroy me art wise so I have quite a lot of work ahead if I wanna get remotely close to my goal lol. one thing i think i have going for me is my age, after looking through many many interviews and bios, a fairly common concept artist age seems to be around 28 so I figure I have as least 6-7 years to get where i wanna be! of course there are some concept artists out there that are like 20-21! at least from what i've read/seen crazy crazy.
    keith_v- thanks
    MonkeYoakum- ! ah thanks! very helpful
    Kian- oOOoo! thanks for the kind words!

    heres an update to the space station, the first one was my original direction and the last one is more spacie to match the topic a little better.

    this space station is really cool, loving how you got the best outta it
    The portrait of the girl with the piercings is a bit too symmetrical for me. The lack of compositional means, which should definitely be considered in portraits as in other paintings, makes it really hard for me to "rest" on the piece. I can really feel like my eyes are jumping arround, trying to find a place to rest on.

    Though thats just a minor thing, the rest fo your stuff kicks ass
