    You have a website? When you get to post next, be sure to fill all your commentors in on that, sounds really neat.

    Anywhos, I'm looking forwards to when your computer is all fixed up so you can post more.

    The style reminds me (I've said it before, but I'll say it again) of Andrew Jones', in this work. I really like the work you've done in that style, the layers and designs hold the interest a lot. How long does it generally take to do a work like this, out of curiosity?

    Proportions-wise, I think the nose of the tiger is too narrow, and the eyes could be spaced further apart, but I really love the design on the bottom of the nose, and how the whiskers and mouth turned out, I like that semi transparent look in it.

    Good stuff, keep it up.

    That one's looking good. I'm loving the textures. I think that maybe the angles of the branches look a little funny, but since all the trees have the same style and angle of branches, it makes it look fine, and not a big deal.

    Psst, I got my tablet. You should pop over to my sketch book and give me some advice on how to get used to how it draws.

    Stellar enviroment work for the last picture. I really like it, to me it also has that "feel" that defines your enviroments. I can't really describe it better then that, but increasingly in your enviroments your techniques and choices of color and textures are similar, so I consider it in your style.

    The deer looks off to me, anatomy wise. The head is amazing, and looks really great, but the body looks diproportional to it. He seems a little fat, and the legs, particularily the hoofs, seem too small. Either you could make the body bigger to match the head size, or the head smaller.

    I'll give an example, using a crappy 1-minute paint sketch over your art.

    Keep it up though, don't let anatomy get you down!

    Edit ... the armor just fused with the head kind of so changed it and gave the whole scene a slight tint

    Heya! It's me again, back with my crappy red lines on your art.

    First of all, the wolf is awesome. I love how the blood splatters turned out, that's really awesome. I think maybe you could do some more refining work on the fur, but it's not bad this way either. One thing I did dislike was the angle of the "back" legs, back not meaning hind in this case, but the legs furthest from the viewer. They seem to be in awkward positions, and at far too dramatic an angle from the body. I did some red linework to show off what I mean. Also, I think I like the first version's face better (due to the amount of blood splatters), but the tint on the second one better. I used the first one in my example.

    Your gargoyle-like creature looks awesome in it's texture and shading, although the detailing of the rock doesn't quiet seem to fit, since it's the most refined and doesn't seem to keep the same thickness/technique feel as the rest of the piece. However, what struck me most is the face. Right now, your creature looks almost comical, and friendly. That's great if you intended that! But if you didn't intend it, and want it to be scary (I thought I'd go into detail since you didn't specify one way or the other) then I'd rework the facial structure. Right now you have a basic "happy face" instead of a "scary face." My handy-dandy red marker will show what I mean!

    I like the whole enviroment surrounding the house, the clouds look awesome, and I like the different types and how they aren't all just the puffy cotton ball kind. The island's plants and rocks have that sigtaure feel of your "style" to me, which is awesome, but I dislike the house. To clarify, the house looks awesome and I love the detail, but it does not seem to fit the rest of the scene due to that detail and fineness of line. It seems out of place, and rendered differently from the rest. Did you use a different brush only on it? That might do it.


    Keep giving us updates!

    You should post it up here! I'll keep reminding you until you do, so you don't forget!

    By the way, what program are you using for all this, anyways? I'm sure I've asked before, or you said it somewhere, but I don't remember and am too lazy to look it up. Do you like whatever program your using, and how does it compare to others? I'm still working with just Gimp and Art Rage, although I'm thinking of installing a trial version of Corell Painter and/or Photoshop.

    But right, on to your artwork. In the speed paint in #168 (that's the first of the last two), I really like the color scheme. It has a sunrise-type feel to it, and fall seems to be reflected in the leaves. I also think the birds in the sky are really a nice touch. Hmm. I'm going to say that my interpretation of the enviroment is as a forest on the edge of a lake. Looking at it that way, I'm going to say that your water looks off, like it's ontop of the lakeweed, rather then below it. On a second look, I'm actually wondering if the "water" is intending to be something else entirely, and I'm missing the point. -_- It looks like it might be undefined flowers? I'm really not sure. I'm also on the tired side, so that could have something to do with it.

    In the second one, I love the river back, and how it's in what I associate to be your style. However, I don't think the water matches up with the look of the rest of the painting. I think it needs to be more refined, although I like how in some areas you almost get a sense of reflection.

    Good work, keep it up!

    Yeah the first one was unrefined flowers. I didnt look at any refrences for this and thats probably why it looks confuseing. I usually look at a image and try and use the same properties to convey something different. So far im having troubles with it but i feel like its forceing me to get better at coming up with a scene instead of just painting the scene im looking at. In general both of those speed paints could have been better rendered. I did them both in an hour so they didnt get the time they deserve but im kinda haveing a weird art spell right now. The program i use is PS and I really like it. There is alot you can do with the program and im still learning after taking classes on the program in college. As for if there are better programs I dont think there is such a thing. I mean that as in that ps is a great tool and I took a class on corel painter and just didnt get taught to do as many things as I did in ps plus i didnt have means to buy corel. I would like too at some point andrew jones comented on one of my shape siftings and suggested i get it. I think theres alot of things you can do in it as well so im guessing both would be great programs to have and learn. If i can get my self some damn momentum and get some concept jobs or illustrations i would love to join the corel community. Anyways thanks for all your support Taven your the only person who comments in my sketchbook and thanks to you the future might bring more people but i really do appreciate the time you take to crit my work!


    I think the general problem with this dragon is i just didnt make the head seem to longate it kind of turns into a more human shape of a head and just makes it look extremly odd. The eyes should ahve been more to the side of the head. Anyways they were a bit more angry here.

    You have some nice stuff in here.
    My main constructive criticism is that you go into details before getting the bigger (and much more important) structure down. You need to pay more attention to light and dark, forms and edges. The best way for you to progress in my opinion is to do some still lives. Spend a longer time than usual to make sure that you have the overall proportions correct, then longer than normal getting the light to fall correctly.
    If you spend 4 hours, and still haven't put textures in, then you will have improved!
