I really liked the mood in the environment piece
great stuff man
GeistDel- thanks, well it depends, for some, generally my larger pieces, I usually plan things out in my head and by the time i put it on paper I have a set idea of what i want and how its gonna look, with others I just play with shapes till something evolves and go from there although i try to keep an open mind, if something doesn't work the way i had thought then I'll change it or remove it totally.
here are two quick environments, just practice as usual. I have like 4 others but they're pretty bad lol
I dig, really like the girl blowing in the wind and the environmental piece with the flying/floating cars, raw talent man! Good luck and keep it up so that we have something pwetty to look at!
DannyMuskens- I'll try!
Hive_minD- thanks here's a few new ones
Quinn Simoes- great! thanks, I don't really do many sci fi environments so i'm gonna try getting some more up
Noukah-heh heh well i don't know about that! maybe i'll work on them a tini bit before posting.
heres two more, both very similar obviously cause I was working on them at the same time and sharing elements from both
nice stuff, I esspecialy like the snowy metropolis, but those last two seem really saturated all over, but especialy in the shadows. Or maybee thats just me.

heh heh yea they are a bit saturated, I got a little crazy with the overlay layers if i was gonna print them out or do something with them i'd fix it but they're just practice. Heres one of those bad ones I was talking about, i didn't really feel like painting but I forced myself to do something, it just seems dirty and things don't really work that well.
Shite. Nice enviros. What would you recommend a noob like me, if I would to become better at enviros..?
Studies? If so.. what kind of studies do you make? =o
Oh and keeep it uuupp m8.
xbert- heh heh i have heard that few times I love color and i'm glad i've been fairly successful so far lol hopefully they'll get even better as I learn
Vigilandus- how much of a noob well I'd say get a few ref shots to practice from and focus on blocking in nice big shapes until you get a good composition going, its also especially important to keep values in mind with environments cause your dealing with a lot of distance and remember that the further back you go, generally the less amount of detail and saturation you should have.
Noukah- hi again lol thanks! wellll I tend to have a very traditional view so I try to get the color right the first time but lately i've been realizing how phenominal photoshop is as a post editing tool lol, but to answer your question, I don't usually tweek things after i'm done unless there are some major issues. also when i do have tweeking its usually done throughout the painting process...wait a minute..was that your question?
...anyway here's another I just did since my last post! I think i'm getting faster although i wasn't too clever with the design layout heh heh the next one will look totally different! i swear!
Dang! Producer! I like those last ones. Nice sense of light
