Practice Makes Perfect - Gardener's Sketchbook
Hello everyone, I'm from China. Practice makes perfect, that's what I usually believed. Any person could be a master, if he works hard.
At the same time, I think I should learn from all of you, and communicate with each other. Maybe this is the best way to grow up.
These are something I painted since last year. I love painting environment very much, and now improving my characters is also my aim.
Finally, commending and criticizing are both welcomed!
Hope you like it~

OMG thats amazing.
Very good paintingis.
I very like massive things.
Yea and i noticed that the sky in most of paintings is blurred and not very well blended.
I'd very like to know ur opinion about my sketches.
I'd be honored if u check my SB sometime.

The ships are the best. Try and get the same feeling, composition and rendering in the others with it. You got it down in the massive one that reads Legend as well. Great stuff, sir.

To me you sure seem to know what you are doing. How you do it amazes me because environmental seems to be my biggest fear. Your very creative and colorful as well. Very nice.
Are you living in the matrix or do you think all of this is real? For me, well I am pretty dang sure it is the matrix. beings.

careful on your proportions, your legs have been looking too short in a lot of those.
Overally, lots of cool stuff though.

Oh, thank you very much! In fact, some short legs are from a perspective photo. I do not have very good skills to express them. So you finally find that they are with short legs.
anyway, thankyou and please take more advises~

a personal work with some steps. though it's really rough, i still hope this will be helpful for some of you by the way, i don't know how to draw a face... it's truly a bad news for me. i need to crack it!
hope you all like it~

hey man very nice book, i am a big fan of the traditional media environments in post 7. one thing that is nagging about your digital work though is that so many elements seem to be competing for attention, you may want to experiment with creating points of interest in the paintings by having focus areas with higher contrast and not using the same value range and saturation throughout the entire composition. keep it up man.

I'm from Shanghai too ~ ahem... anyways.
I like all of your work so far. Your environments are well composed with interesting color themes and combinations. Your figure study looks like it's going great too. MayI give a little suggestion? Perhaps more dynamic torso (mid section) movements in the future? I am looking forward to see more of your works.

Very nice updates. I like the face, it shows the delicate relationship between the tones. Thanks for taking my advice. Keep up the good work.
Well, I've immigrated to North America couple years ago. Can't wait to go back to shanghai in the summer. I still love that place. >>.
