Really nice to see such a rapid progress here, especially the digital paintings.
I like your experimenting with various subjects and brushes. The latest post shows great depth in it, maybe use ref is a nice idea, but here I seem to focus on seeing the painting as a whole instead.
Keep the nice working!
It should always be bore in one's mind that he must be responsible for his life........
Unsharpened: Thanx alot for the nice comments!!
Yeah ur right i definitely shoulda used a ref, i always wanna draw clouds but without making studies of'em u just cant have real beautiful ones (guess its like for many things)!
OH and i gave a look to Craig Mullins clouds the other day and damn, i really thought he had used photos!
Algenpfleger: Hey man, always a pleasure to see u here!!!
But come on Hannes people will think i've hired u to constantly bump my thread to the top!!!
holy shit man you progress too fast for me! why do you do that!
Hehehe, i just dont worry for ya!
A pic i did tonight, hope u like (but hey let me know if u dont )
Algenpfleger: Haaa!! Stop it or im gonna report u to the mods!!!!! Lol!
Always a pleasure my friend but i really dont deserve such attention.
Thanxx alot anyway!!!
My name is Soufiane (hehe not very french i know!).
90% of people i know decided that my name was spelled either sophian or sofian or even soofphianne (last one's a joke, i dont know such retards!) anyway u now have my name and the right spelling!
I fear not to stop is not the problem but i think going ahead is the big deal!
Dont like them anymore (soooo empty).
My brain is just unable to tell me to stop the shit while im painting, its only once i'm done that i realize.
Hope time will help (ive got some bad habbits i've f****ng got to shrug off!
wow man i really dig your work! deff some of my fav work ive seen on these forums. I really dig your landscapes. I rather enjoy painting them as well. Do you live near mountains? I always notice those that do are much better at painting mountains. Ill deff keep an eye on your work!
man, i really liked looking through your sketchbook. I especially like your environments, the color in them is really nice. Also it seems like you respond well to crits, i notice that chupacabra stopped in and told you to concentrate detail around the focal point and you started doing that. i can tell this is going to be a really awesome sketchbook. Do you do mostly studies from photos? if so, where do you get your reference from?
"I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain."

Oh my friend u surely havent browsed CA enough yet or u would never say that!
Do you live near mountains? I always notice those that do are much better at painting mountains.
Lol, no i dont live near mountains only concrete, concrete and er... a couple o'trees here and there, well in a city!!! To be honest i draw alot of mountains because they seem easier to me than the rest and so i dont have to face the harsh truth wich is; i cant paint as many things as i'd like and therefore i have a big loada stuff to learn...
Thanx again for posting!!
Artzealot: Thanx,thanx and Thanx!
i can tell this is going to be a really awesome sketchbook.
I'll try my best to make it happen!
Do you do mostly studies from photos? if so, where do you get your reference from?
I do make studies from photos but not as much as i'd like, i'm quite lazy and i find it hard to stretch myself to paint new stuff and things i dont know wich is undoubtedly a terrible flaw im trying to get rid of!
I get my pictures from like everywhere (including google of course) as long as its got beauty in it and it enables pasting, its for me!!
However i do have a special link for ya!
It was generously shared by Algenpfleger in his thread a few weeks ago and ill always be grateful to him for that!
Enough babbling, its here!!!!!! Hope ull enjoy it!
Here is today's practice!
Trying to paint stuff i hardly ever painted before and a VeryquickAndveryRushed landscape study (the first)!!!
