    haven't been here in a long time :o
    love the creatures in your last updates, especially the cute little chicken is great.
    and the raptors look pretty good, I hope you get to finish your entry in time.

    Great studies on the raptors, your pencil look great and your photoshoped painting studies are really good, almost too good. Try mixing some of your own style into those nature studies.

    Again, great SB.

    Hey, thanks for your critique, I'm really blessed for each entry (especially for some like yours). You're probably right with the fuzzyness, although I think it's already reduced to an acceptable level (isn't it?) ... On the other hand I have to say that you seem to be one step ahead on this subject
    Your pieces from ref kick ass man I really had to have a sharp look on the first NG bug to get the real one ...
    Oh and I think umbrella would be the correct translation for regenschirm ...

    No skill still isn't a new side.

    Thanks for the replies guys...

    daHIPPIE: I´ve been trying to do so, but I really have problems with taking this level of painting in my own pieces...gotta get more into the lights and values and other theories I think.

    lord regenschirm: Yes...the fuzzyness isn´t that bad or so, think your pieces are less fuzzy then mine actually, but it´s something I saw that could be even better, just to let ya know haha.
    That first bug piece I did using the colourpicker, it really isn´t hard to do, only takes a lot of time...the other bug studies where much more fun to do(without the colourpicker) and much faster.

    Ofcourse...UMBRELLA...me agian thinkin to be funny...NOT!!

    Thanks again, cya...

    Hey, thanks for stopping by my sketchbook. You have some really neat concepts here, and I love your pencilwork! Good stuff. Your digital paintings could be less blobby, though. The bugs look good, but the fuzziness doesn't really work in the rest. I haven't seen many digital paintings (overall) where the unfocused-photo look really works. I'm not saying that it's not worth experimenting with, just that getting a good result with that technique seems to be rare. Maybe try a few paintings using a hard-edged brush at low-ish opacity and see how that works out for you.

    Other than that, you have some pretty cool ideas -- it'll be interesting to see what else you come up with. I especially like that reclining raptor, it's hilarious.

    yoyoyo!
    long time no see
    but you got some nice stuff in your latest updates! love the environments. where u can make some more progress is maybe detailing the environments a little bit more. sometimes it feels like they dont really have a focus point because everything has the same intensity if you know what i mean. maybe its also the composition that might be a little bit more exciting. but that doesnt take away they are beautiful!

    Hey lowlander..!
    How about an update of your awesome photo realistic stuff, or some great cartoon concepts? It's been awhile, for me too, but hey. .busy life.
    I must say your later environment studies have improved a lot over previous ones, color and light wise. . which is very difficult stuff indeed.
    Laterzz!

    Thumbs up

    Hi,

    You have a real talent for rendering images from photos! I really like your character designs too and since the beginning of this SB your renderings of those, placing them in scenes with color, has improved a lot and definitely become much more sophisticated.

    Kudos on "Cute but deadly"!
