    a little more progress on eco-tron bot scene. I have not really done a full scene, so this is something I am both struggling with, but happy to start doing!

    Also added some brush tests, as I was making new brushes last night..

    Your paintings are amazing, especially like the robot with all that mist around him. Really well defined edges and a great use of light. I'm jealous.
    I really need to get my head around brushes and digital painting generally. I love the little repetative strokes you have in more of your speed painting.

    Your drawings, even though preliminary, could use work. I think you may have my problem of sometimes working too small. Try and be more elaborate with your strokes, possibly.

    Love to see more [especially robotic] stuff.

    Hey man, thanks alot for the tip you gave me. I'll definitely start considering it more.. especially after seing your work. Really inspiring!

    I think your colours are great, especially in the angel pieces with all the lightning, and your enviros.. that one in page 1, with a red sky really cought my eye. Having that green and the red really gave the piece something.

    As you mentioned, I think what'll help you most at the moment are studies, since you grasp imaginative painting well.

    cheers.

    You are the texture guy. It's cool to see experiment with different brushes and your use of colors is quite nice (which I'm still learning both). The only thing I see is your anatomy needs a little work. That is something I try to practice as often as possible and I use reference quite a bit. Keep up the good work!

    I started Analysis of Form at Academy of Art University Online this semester. Finally getting some formal schooling, and disciplining myself to do foundational studies. I'll post them here:

    Bought the massive black book recently... good stuff... was a little disappointed that I was already familiar with much of the material.. (always love seeing new stuff from MB)

    Well, here's some school stuff. Finished my first class... (now to make sure I get credit for it)

    Anyway.. drew some zombies this weekend... should put those up some time.. Need to do more personal works!

    2 years.... SHAME on me! I'd have a little more to show, but I fried my work system and am still waiting to see if it can be repaired. I need to make more art! No excuses!

    I dind't realise this sketchbook was atleast two years old, but that doesn't matter. What matters is that you're posting again!

    The charcoal drawings are very, very impressive. I also like your designs and the colours of the cathedral in your very first post. I'm anxious to see what new work you'll produce!

    Very awesome sketchbook. Your studies are looking great. I'm just going to be an ass and nitpick at a couple things so hopefully you can make even MORE awesome shit! It's an eye-candy investment...


    http://www.conceptart.org/forums/att...1&d=1237527308

    Careful around the abs in this one, in your drawing one of the top left (her left, our right) ab sticks out kinda more like a ball, too rounded and too far out, the specular highlighting
    on the shoulder looks soooo crisp though, love it.


    http://www.conceptart.org/forums/att...1&d=1250877140

    Careful around the heel there, it's really flat footed , the angle feels like it might be too sharp. Foot anatomy is tough though it really throws my mind out the window. Your sense for levels is jaw dropping regardless though!

    http://www.conceptart.org/forums/att...1&d=1242097129

    Here's something my friend pointed out to me in a lot of drawings, the grecian nose, and a bad image as a good example:

    http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedi...G-77_(PSF).png

    I've never personally seen anyone where the bit at the top of the nose is completely flat, usually always there's a slight indent there and to me personally, not seeing an indication of an indent always makes the whole face start to look alien to me. People have different preferences to this, and you probably have one too... But just food for thought on how other people are perceiving your work; you can't see the top of the nose in your pic as the fringe covers it, but it still looks like the bit behind the fringe is shaped like a grecian nose for me...

    I love the colour in the realm of empires piece, will definitely be visiting your sketchbook again to see more.

    Edit: Doh.... just realised you revived this 2 year old sketchbook. so not even sure my feedback applies anymore. -.- oh well~ haha

    Mila - thanks, I hope to keep up with this now. If I'm not posting at least once a week, remember to yell at me!

    BlightedArt - Still very helpful and thoughtful critiques! I still hold on to a lot of the old habits. It really is all about breaking our preconceived notions of how things should look or be rendered... we get these crazy ideas from nowhere and we struggle out of some, and others don't ever hit us until someone just tells it like it is


    Okey doke. I've always been afraid of figures and heads... so I'm confronting this unhealthy fear.. hopefully it will lose its scariness.

    Well, here's nothing I am too proud of. A quick study and a bunch of doodles. Just about everything else from these past few weeks has gone through the shredder.
