    These two were 1 to 2 hour speed paints i did to try and quickly capture the scene from the game lotr online which i saw my brother playing and noticed how good the atmospheric perspective is. Not only that but i get the option to practice so Ive been starting to do a few of these.

    On a side note i was once given a link to a section within these forums that had hundreds of characters in different poses. Pictures taken of people in poses. Does anyone know the link to that section? After my life drawing class where we only had 3 models i was really mad that i didnt learn much and would really like to study those pictures. I guess on the same note if anyone knows of some good sections to check out on this website i would really appreciate it if you could link them too me. I really am serious about my work and when im not at school or work i am working on my own personal art to get better. Its what i love and until the day i die will be doing thats how much i love art and creativity so if you could help me a little i would be very greatful! Thanks all Please keep an eye on me!

    Sorry forgot to add that im 20 Have been taking art classes at kvcc in michigan ... community college and am currently trying to get to a school that might actully teach me something. I havent learned alot from the school im at right now.

    For details on how to use attachments instead of img tags, go to the Lounge section, and into the stickied intro thread. There are directions and pictures there that will show you how.

    I'll try to give a critique later, but you have some nice stuff from a glance.

    For post #1 in the hour speed paint, I love the texture and depth. I also like the glowing coming from within the trees, although it's my opinion that it doesn't fit well with the rest of the peice-- You should add some more red hues (not nessisarily glowing, but something) to help the composition. Are you planning on spending more time on it and adding other colors? I think that would be fun to see.

    I like the color variety in the speed paint with the purple tower, although the lighting (or lack thereof) on the left rock seems off in relation to the shading of the path.The sky is excellently done; nice shades and convincing clouds.

    I love the mushroom house scene. The treetrunk texture and flowers are convincing, but the bridge looks too computer drawn to me. Yes, I know that's an odd comment since it -was- computer drawn, but I think that making it "more realistic" would fit in with the rest of the peice better. I hope that made some sort of sense. =P

    For your warrior, I think you did an excellent job on the arms. However, the right shoulder armor looks too flat, try rounding it out more or shading it to look more curved. I love the glow-details on the eyes, sword, and cape. A suggestion for future warrior-works is to try finding a more dynamic and action-filled pose.

    I love your swirling vortex eye-thing. It's fun to stare at. =P Alright, so not my most brilliant comment. The hightlights on the stretching bands of red and pink are great, and the shades inbetween them are fun to look at. No real criticism for this one, I suppose. You keeping it as-is, or thinking of working with it more and turning it into a peice?

    For the perspective building scene with the horse and the guy, excellent details on the mountains and bridge. I think the flowers are a bit off, because the area around the horse looks like it could possibly be liquid. Just my impression, anyways.

    I'll critique some more later, probably.

    Keep up the good work!
