    Thanks, all, for the comments.

    I spent a few hours on this one. Just a house from an image I picked up off the internet. My real objective on this one was to accurately paint the lighting conditions. I neglected to try and add the reflections, (I have no idea how to), and my trees could probably use some work.

    Overall, I'm happy with the final result. I enjoyed working with the very warm dynamic lighting, and the very cool surrounding environment.

    Putting it together was easy enough. I dropped some guiding lines over the original image to get my perspective, and then dragged those lines onto my canvas where I simply resized them. After that, it was a simple issue of blocking out my dominant colors, and focusing on painting very loosely and simply, paying very close attention to to how the light was affecting the composition. It was a great image for working on my color theory too!

    Crits are definitely appreciated and encouraged.

    If necessary, I'll upload my ref as well.

    Great stuff...Looks like you're one of the impatient ones that likes to put in detail before they fill in all the color first. Still looks great. I look forward to more!

    Another quick speed paint. Attempting to let my values define my shapes rather than lines (in some places, anyway).

    Nice work, it all has a very nice feeling to it. Why don't you take one of these pieces and try to finish it, push it as far as you can, you might end up discovering you've got much more than you are showing right no, and might help others to give a more helpful feedback. keep it up, please keep posting!

    The soldier and the enviro sketch are definitely the best ones.
    I guess that the lack of contour lines makes them look much better than the others. The first three images - and the last one - are rather flat (except from the alien robot wich looks cool). I think that if you see large areas filled with only one color than you mustn't stop workin' on the image. Perfect example for this is the girl on the firs drawing. Proportions look quite fine, but her cloth look totally flat. There isn't any light sources on that image. Try working on those areas, Use more variated colors or color dodge/burn to define shape.
    The other problem I can see is contours:
    I suggest that you should use contours only in the early stage of drawing (at the very beginning), try to draw the shading on a separate layer, and when the shading is ready, get rid of the contour layer. Real objects aren't bordered by contours, keep that in mind!

    And thanks for the link to M@'s brushes! Man, that brush collection is really cool.

    (And use attachment manager! It has changed recently, And it also took me a little time till I figured out how it works. It doesn't show attached pictures automatically. If you want the images to be shown:
    1) Attach them with the attachment manager
    2) Click in the text to the place where you want to paste the image
    3) Click on the Attachmen manager icon - This will open a drop down list of the attached images
    4) Click on the name of the image you want to paste

    Hope that it helps.)

    lalovergel: Yup, that was one of the problems I was having: i.e., taking a composition and actually finishing it.

    Noverbert: Thanks for the advice. Ultimately, the contour lines would be eliminated as I progressed, but once again, the images up top are really just examples of a problem I've been having: the inability to push a paining to an ultimate conclusion. And yeah, some of my newer ones still look kind of flat. I'm still getting used to painting with color rather than with line.

    Anyway, I was doodling in my sketchbook las night and came up with these.

    If there's a better way to scan pencil illustrations, then I'd like to know about it.
