    I´d say some compromise between those two versions of the eow entry can be optimal....

    awesome piece of work anyway..

    But the girl in the picture don't seem to fit in, I think that she is a little to bright compared with the rest of the picture.

    hp-, process,...well it started of with some lame half assed attempt at 3am, then i woke up the next morning and realized how crappy it was so i painted over the whole thing for another few hours, flipped the canvas and almost vomitted from the awful composition, then I went all out and started scribbling in some crazy cliffs and tada! so unfortunately this particular piece doesn't really have a good process that would be of much help lol I did learn a lot from it though.
    ArtZealot-wow thanks actually I was hoping for a crit on this one cause I had been staring at it so long that I couldn't really tell what needed to be worked on. I definitely agree with the atmosphere and I see what your saying about it being cramped and in need for a place that the eye can rest for a bit. I don't think i'll have time to get to all these issues before the deadline but i'll probably work on it a little more when i get the chance and i must say you have some fantastic work in your sketchbook
    merl1n-thanks
    kidult-haha, as long as its not one of those awkward asspats its good with me and thanks!
    L0rin-well just keep at it and you will though I still have a way to go my self
    Dolleater87-thanks I'm definitely looking forward to finishing that one, and yea I really need to make some adjustments to the figures, thanks for mentioning

    so I actually learned a lot with this one, its the first time I've used a texture brush as opposed to the flat brush that i always use and I must say, it sure is useful! and it definitely makes a big difference. also I realized that I've been using to big of brushes so I played around with tiny brush sizes and just scribbled in the details with gave it a far more textured look. anyway heres what i'm submitting to this weeks eow#107, no more time for anything else at the moment

    I love that last piece and like the changes you made to it. I think that bit of atmospherics under the rocks gives it a little more depth and makes it a bit more open and gives a place to rest without pulling the canvas out. I know how time constraints can be at times. Usually when i post my near-final entries for EOW, i just leave them near-final cause im so sick of staring at them i just want to post them and walk away. At any rate, great work, you have a pretty killer sketchbook here as well.

    Awesome updates! The soul collecting spectre beast turned out very nice. You did a good job with the cliff too. The EOW looks delish!

    ...so I just got back from the Reverie workshop...such an amazing experience! its gonna take me a bit to digest everything but I just wanted to post a few things that i did there, surprisingly I didn't get the chance to do much drawing cause I was wandering all over trying to get as much info as possible but its definitely overloaded me with inspiration can't wait to start painting again!

    Nice! Found my way over here from the Reverie sketches thread. Thought those life paintings were pretty well done, mate. I see rings on the side... did you sketch these in pencil and still have time to shoot a picture of your page to follow up in PS, or what? You didn't paint all of the color by memory, did you? XD
    Great stuff in here. Cheers!

    DeKal- thanks I've been focusing on environments lately so i'm glad to hear its paying off.

    staticpen-haha, thanks! I sketched them out at the workshop and then ran home to take a pic and color them in with photoshop so thats why you see the rings

    heres a wip for the "bad side of the city" eow, still workin on the atmosphere and details but its getting there!

    Ah, I dig that! I especially like the color temp changes, man. Really swell job. For building facades, do you paint stuff on a new layer and then transform to fit, or what?

    staticpen- hey again yep, I have a line brush that literally is used to put down a bunch of lines and I transform it and skew it to fit the perspective and then erase the parts i don't want then for added details I select the newly angled lines and scribble in details and textures. quite the useful technique
    Verehin- haha thanks!
    hp- well thank you Yea i'm really glad I added in the birds cause it was missing something.

    so heres what i'm submitting for this weeks eow, hope you like it

    I'm offended.

    Insulted even.

    I cannot believe this...

    How could I go so long without ever looking through here?!?!?

    Your environments are fantastic. Truly impressed with your work and a little intrigued... Something happened to you, between page 7 and page 8. Something happened and you got exponentially better immediately.

    Any idea what it was?

    Beautiful work. Please continue to share with us.

    I've subscribed and starred you up deservingly.

    Haha! thanks IanE, page 7-8 aye, i'll have to take a look though i'm pretty sure thats around when i decided to stop screwing around and focus, also Jon Schindehette Senior Art Director Wizards of the Coast told me to choose a direction and go for it so thats what i'm currently doing with environments. Once i get them to an acceptable level I'll probably get back into character work cause I really love doing both but in terms of getting a job I need to be an expert at at least one of them. anyway here is something a little different, I just finished an art test, and they wanted me to be a little bit more playful with my style so here is a mockup of a TD game

    OH! The environment at the top swept me off my feet and took me to a fancy candle-lit dinner.

    It hurts that I havn't seen this thread before.

    Beautiful new posts! This dude here at the bottom is looking swell. I like the color schemes of 2 and 4, personally.
    That TD shot actually reminds me of a sort of parody of Resident Evil 2! Fun stuff, man.
    As far as perfecting enviros or characters, I think you have really solid skills in both of them. Haha. You should do fine whichever direction you choose, if you're always working hard.
