    Yay, update!

    Cool work dude, the very texturized traditional work is awesome. For you digitals you might be overusing the textures a bit? Too much texture on background elements might be a reason for making the images seem a bit flat. You probably wouldn't see all the texture detail from such a distance.
    Keep it up!

    Hey man, cool updates, that last piece is looking like it's going to turn out great, and the pencils are cool as always.
    For your environments, Nick Constantine recently updated with some pieces in the FF section if you haven't seen it. He does some awesome heavily textured environments, they might help you to see how he handles the heavy texture, and still don't end up getting flat images (though some are semi-flat )

    Keep it up man, sorry to hear about the oils.

    sssssafe bro i feel we should crit eachother more, to my shame this is the only time ive really had a good flick thru ur sb. loving it as well, i can see when u develop ur style ur gona have some crazy shit goin on. for now the main crit is that ur getting so caught up in texturing the forms that they lose all volume and become really flat (gustav klimt much?) this is critical to environments- as they dont have any figures, all we can read them by is the forms and how 3d they appear, and urs are completely losing any sense of depth and that makes them boring. its happening in some of ur figures too.

    http://i27.photobucket.com/albums/c1...z/crop0499.jpg
    this baby has the potential to smack a bitch up, but overly texturing it has distracted u, and the viewer, from seeing any actual forms there. if i put a blur over it in photoshop, it would all b the same tone. there is no dark /light side. ur latest digi painting is seven kinds of sick tho, cos you got the light/darkside thing right and the forms are clearly divided by tone (dark trousers breaks up the figure). just remember the key issue here is READABILITY. ur art is for viewing, right? u need to make sure that ur viewers can at a glance, see whats going on.
    according to the laws of generic sci fi i presume the guys armour shell thing is made of metal, yet its the same tone and texture as his skin, makes it all samey and booring

    sexy man. remember wise words of sensei schmid however; looseness reflects how a painting should look , not how it is executed. a lot of these are really good but you arent really developing anything. there is a lot more that can be learned beyond just making quick sketches...i would do well to listen to my own advice tho lol

    u paint like you sketch; thats generally really good, but theres too much faffing about with markmaking. every mark should contribute to the overall effect of the piece- on a lot of these u seem to get distracted making unnecessary marks.

    i think this

    I've been meaning to comment for a while. I really like the look of this stuff dude, you have a nice sense of depth and perspective, the ability to think in 3d space is something that you just need from the start and quite hard to improve on (in my opinion, I don't know if other artists would agree.) unlike painting and drawing abilities, which just grow exponentially.

    I really love this page http://i27.photobucket.com/albums/c1...z/crop0498.jpg

    I think that if you spent more time rendering your paintings, thinking about light sources, and trying to make them better than you think you can do, you would learn more, at least, that's how it works for me. When you're sitting there playing around for days with a piece, quite often you'll do something accidentally and it'll look good, then it becomes a skill that you use over and over.

    update!

    ill dig my teeth in shall i

    so much stuff, im loving it... something which continues to baffle me about u is the range of work u have n stuff. some of it is absolutely brilliant. some of it is absolute bollocks, notably this: http://i27.photobucket.com/albums/c1...dpainting1.jpg

    ....between these words and my last paragraph, i looked at ur line drawings and was inspired to do some studies from them and did about 15 other sketches - and have had an 'epiphany' in my knowledge of anatomy. i hope that comes close to letting u know how much i luv luv luv ur linework. ur painting is letting the lines down and i should know..i have exactly the same problems
    whats funny about ur style is that the meticulousl patterns are almost as if u are inflicting visual snow upon ur viewers, it works well but dont get lost in the patterns, remember to have a heirarchy of forms, some will be more prominent and lighter while others recede. currently you seem to treat many things uniformly which makes it less dynamic.

    http://i27.photobucket.com/albums/c1...90628-0026.jpg
    thats sick

    your obviously a sketchy person but remember sketchy style only really 'works' if there is a non-sketchy focal point . its why this http://i27.photobucket.com/albums/c1...manetstudy.jpg works and this http://i27.photobucket.com/albums/c1...kz/brioche.jpg doesnt. the manet study is sharper round the mans face so i look there. all in all i guess ur pencils just work more because thier size forces u to be a bit more specific. given the freedom of bigger brushes, your digipaintings (and sometimes traditional paintings) become an incoherent mess ( http://i27.photobucket.com/albums/c1...omposition.jpg )

    by the way, this
