    Very pretty. I like the secondary color scheme on the building including the little green touches. Technically perfect for me but I would push the composition more.

    The only critique I have is that the flying cars and the building seem of equal interest, to me - the color and texture are similar, too.

    Great improvement throughout this sketchbook, that city/flying car piece is professional material. I really like the bold color choices too, do you intuitively come up with your color schemes or are they more planned?

    BigPapaRaels- lol thanks! guess you must've missed some of the other sketchbooks on here though, there are a lot on here that just blow me away

    Peter Berkovski- thanks, I had different plans for that sketch but it was just sitting around.

    aedman- thanks! you think so? its hard for me to tell sometimes. for the colors it depends, the cityscape was planned out more than most but if something doesn't work then I'll keep changing it till it does.

    heres a sketch for today, i'll paint it up in a little bit.

    She seems to be lifting up off the ground, so if thats what your going for then good, but i think she'd work better grounded. also, I think bigger hips would make her hotter, though a less probable flying humanoid.

    Wow! Really ace stuff in here!
    A thought on that painting with the flying cars, the people on the ground seems a bit large imo, putting down the scale of the whole image. It would be more action and be a bit more grand if the scale of the building was greater.
    But perhaps that's a restriction from the client, just a thought.
    Keep it goin'

    algenpfleger- thanks!
    MonkeYoakum- yea i agree, as you can see i've worked on it a bit more since this last post
    shardana- heh heh
    MeTaL-Mike- thanks some aye! I'll have to work on that lol
    call me snake- the client likes it the way it is so I wouldn't dare touch it haha but thanks for the advice though

    here's an update to the sketch above, also a portrait, as you can see it took a drastic turn towards the creapy side...why does that always happen! and a little 2d game background cause my little brother is just learning programming and needed something to play with, I added little things like ladders and diagonals for him to try solving.

    This one the hills in the back seem solid, but I feel like I want to see some kind of warm light falling on the top crest of her wings (as warm as that lighting is going to get. I really dig the color set up on that piece. Great work keep em comin!

    I didn't see your sketchbook before. Wow. Design, composition, colors. Everything very well thought out. I especially like this illustration with female's face covered in shadow and those verygreen landscape pics. 5 stars from me.

    Keep posting

    hey i really like the latest CHOW it's pretty badass, although i think his right forearm kind of gets lost in the picture maybe some simple highlights on him would help to suffice this. I also really love the monochromatic color scheme on the angel piece, looks sweet. keep up the good work.
    To live is to create, to create is to live. Without art and music, I do not know how I would get by in my day to day life.

    these are a solid start, man. if you'd just push them all further, you could really get somewhere. the magick of photoshop layers means you can always go back. dont be afraid to keep going!

    id say the first thing i notice is that your composition and color pallets are nicely thought out, your ideas arent half bad and your perspective is properly done. but, your pics look empty, lifeless, missing all the nitty gritty of the real world. throw some detail in there, mess things up and pay special attention to the way you use the play between focused and blurry. and, dont be afraid to throw some subtle texture overlays on things to break up that digital brush feel. then pic your focal areas and really nail those edges.

    your heading in the right direction, keep it up!

    thesadpencil- thanks, the client will be using that color scheme for his new website as well
    Layil- thanks so much for the helpful advice, I completely agree, I think its cause in an attempt to learn concept design I've instead just gotten lazy and created unfinished illustrations so i've gotta work on that and i'll keep your suggestions in mind!

    in the mean time here are a few...err bunch of things i've been working on,
