    Does S.M. stand for "Sexy. Magnificent."?
    Cuz that's what you're enviros are...

    Do you have any process videos? I'm really curious how you get your skies looking so good, so quickly. You really nail the gradients.

    That waves study is great, was it from a photo? How much have you learned (if at all) from copying photos? It's an exercise I see a lot around here, just wondering if you did it.

    Come visit my SB sometime! Need some good enviro crits!

    Keep up the insane work! You really should take one of those WIP's and push it to the limit!

    Hehe thanks for the support and crits everyone, ill post the replies later and thanks for the rating too!
    "Excelent" is quite inaccurate to refer to my work but ill do with that.
    Oh and the landscape is still in progress so yeah i might change a few things and post it over again.

    Im just here to dump this quickly 'cause its pretty late here and im getting up early tomorrow...
    An apple, from life in PS, half an hour.
    I used a brush i did a lil while back and had been dismissing so far but now i really enjoy it, only thing is it mustnt be used for details but for earlier blocking in stages i think...

    Now that i look at this painting again i must admit that theres some funky stuff goin on in it.
    No chance to fix anything anyway, i fear ive eaten the "sitter" already...

    I have to agree with Algenpfleger, i see a lot of Whit Brachna in these works, which im sure u are aware is a huge compliment.
    U really have pulled your work into a new arena lately, this latest stuff is fantastic. 5* from me for pure awesomeness.

    Aw come on! Downplaying your abilities also results in a severe downgrading of the skills middle-classes like me have for example, thus is considered a severe insult on my part. It's what drives me mad about other Excellent artists such as Algenpfleger, too, this rating-system is relative, so I vote 5* to everyone considerably better than me. Doesn't mean you're perfect.

    Like that apple, for just half an hour it came out nicely, It surely is recognizable!

    Hi everyone!

    Clochette: Merkiii!

    ~Faust~: Too nice to be true!
    Thanx.

    Mbyle: Thanx!

    Lakka: Thanx for the stars!

    oomgawa: Woot! seems its thanx to you! Thank u.

    Call0ps: Thank you, i will.

    Wasker: Thank you im glad you liked it.

    algenpfleger: Hmm i checked that dude's stuff, indeed it looks alot like mine.
    Im sooo young and i already have copycats. *sigh*

    Nightblue: Im glad u liked it! Thanx for looking.

    D@niel: Thank you!

    PieMonster: I dont get it, you guys are really too nice. Thanx

    grenappels: Thank you! Hehe I could talk about brush making all night long but im way too tired. Heres a few advice though:
    Experiment with the settings, make crazy things with them and try to understand the technical side of that stuff.
    Discard anything you're not comfortable with, no matter how cool that brush or setting is supposed to be according to other artists. The coolest brushes will always be the ones u enjoy working with.
    Thats all ull get out of me about it right now.

    wookiedabo: Glad u liked it!

    NR43: Thank you. Didnt focus on that but thanks for the crit!

    pao: Oh mon dieu merci, trop de réponse en anglais, une ptite pause c'est pas du luxe!! Just kidding, thanx! keep up the nice work and be careful wiv comfort zone .

    Jakers: Thank you! In fact im a bit shamed; u took the time to type a thoughtful crit but the thing is im a bit sick of that enviro so after today i think i aint goin to update it anymore... Thanx for taking the time tho.

    James Wolf: Cool im glad someone noticed them it seems the enviro caught all the attention!

    kidult: Great! Thank you.

    JesArt: I appreciate the compliment and ill just trust your word blindly on those first crap pages; i dont dare to go back to them and see for myself; i fear i wouldnt be able to repress the urge to delete it all...

    algenpfleger: Hannes stop spamming my thread please!

    Earendil: S.M were supposed to be my initials but your suggestion will do just as well! No process vid sorry. About skies its just like for all the rest u've got to really open your eyes on what ur looking at, so the time devoted to observation is not wasted. Yes i used a photo as reference for the waves its a really good exercice, do it!
    But as u do it try to undersand what u see, why things look the way they do, etc
    Ill drop by your thread; i was planning on doing so before ur invitation anyway.

    space-sprayer: These are really nice compliments, thank you.

    cucak: Thank you.
    Though, i must admit that being french i dont quite understand what u mean by this: "Just, take out car.jpg please."

    ~Faust~: Relax i said it was mooore than fine with me. Now its up to me to live up to the rating! Thank you nonetheless, i take your overreaction as a compliment.

    chr!z: Thanx.

    DanielC: Oula un V.I.P!! Merci beaucoup!

    Savoru: Thank you!

    Idiot Apathy: Hey Thom that means a lot to me, thanx for looking sir!

    Walid D: Merci


    At long last i bought myself a good laptop and a decent internet connection!
    Note however that it doesnt help that much in making better art (sigh).

    I could type two pages about what made me drop this pic and move along but since im helluva tired, heres a quicker presentation:

    It feels like it needs something on the side. The right side is very defined, but the left looks sort of unfinished. It's dark, and that's pretty much it. Also, to me it looks like you added a bit of canvas to the left side, since that area is much darker. But I'm no expert. I sort of like it cropped at that dark area, but if you did indeed expand it, I can see why, as it feels a little cramped when cropped at the dark area.
    Maybe if you moved the figure to the right a bit, something like this? This is just my opinion though, and I can't paint for shit. Haha.

    Apart from that, the environment is insanely good, and those clouds are super-awesome!

    Yeah, the left side of the last post looks like it's missing something. Maybe if you moved the sun towards the left or cropped part of the left side out. There's a very distinct diagonal between the man, the statue and the rising (setting?) sun behind it, so your eye sort of follows that diagonal and then goes to the mountains that are also behind the statue. But, there's nothing on the left that would lead your eye to that part of the canvas.
    So that was the crit for that piece~

    On another note, I do love the drop of water that you put on the apple in your earlier post O_O

    O holy hell, I knew I had seen that rabbit tiger somewhere before, I was in here some time ago, I just didn't post, or maybe I did, not sure now. Anyways, this stuff is so good. This is how I wished I could do enviros, but I can't, wherein lies the inscentive to work harder I guess. The boooobz picture is great, and I love seeing some limited palettes in use, that is a good quality, I should probably tap into that some more myself. That enviro you had on page 9 is fantastic, something out of the books of the old masters it seems, or out of the head of a new one, as it were, anyways, good stuff.

    Oh, and I speak un petit peu french, oui

    i think thats the coolest of the lot..not that the others are bad...
    they are all great..
    the twisterstuff..wow..nice feel..

    about the last monster stuff...
    how did you achieve those loose 'motion strobe' brush strokes on the lower right side of the image below the hood..?
    care to share ..pls..?

    awesome work again...
    evribitafit...

    There is but one short cut to success...apparently its called Hardwork.
