Hey thanks for stopping by my sketchbook! The gas mask is cool, it is great how you try many differnt media - just keep on with you studies it's the best thing you can do!
Gas mark looks great man, you're too hard on yourself!
As for still life's helping, I am certain, that subconciously you're picking up a lot about the way light works in the real world - it's will definitely rub off in your personal work I'm sure, just give it some time
It looks nice mate.Just in some places it needs more work and fixings.Edges of the shadows, how good is the construction, small and edged highlights(just a point of highlight).Details like that will make them to the other level.But what you have to do is just keep up.And actually it feels like you learn.The big learning will be when you understand why you do somethings as you do them(when you draw from life) so that you can then pass the knowledge to the works of your mind.
woooo, looked through your book, tons of improvement, and some creative designs. Keep rockin trhough itt! Ill watcch. CRIMSON DAGGGEERRSS!!!

The pages from your traditional sketch book on the previous page are really nice!
I just love seeing traditional work, and so varied too!
I really like the fact that you show us how you did your digital work once in a while, and i am really looking forward to see the next ones!
About the mask..hey!! We ALL have our good days n bad days, not that i am encouraging slacking off now but it just happens..not all your work will satisfy you, no? I know i hardly ever get satisfied lol but don't forget you're getting better nevertheless!! Perhaps retouch that shadow and the values to make it better? And some texture around the really highlighted area?
Anyway,like Alex said, don't be so hard on yourself!
And try to do some contours like he is doing to boost your confidence and line quality?
Wow,you work fast!
How the hell can you do that?
Very inspiring work and such diversity. Love it!
Keep up with life studies! Big improvement since your first digipainting.
kischi-Thanks man will do
AlexTooth-Ill keep at it just always trying to find out what i need to improve.
kingkostas-Thanks for the help i have a hard time with edges I alctually need to do some studies about edges in paintings. Ill try adding some more detail in high lighted areas.
agelaos-Crimson daggers 4 life! haha
BlackDelphin-Thanks for droping by my sketchbook Ill add some texture to the high lighted areas fersher. The varied works kinda weird to me haha im not sure if i should try and stick to 1 style and just keep expanding it or just keep expirementing to find a style that i like. Its fun though
Temperowka-Im not sure if im fast or not looking at videos of other artists i think i work pretty slow to be honest. Thanks though ill keep up with the studies.
so what do you guys think should i try to stick with 1 style and grow from it or should i be expirementing with styles? Still feels like i havnt found my style yet maybe its just me. Or should i not be worrying about it and just keep studying and worry about style later?
worked on my still life alittle

thanks for commenting on my sketchbook! thanks for the tip, i hadn't realized until recently how useful it is to copy loomis's stuff for practice. my bridgman book's coming soon yayay
ps...it's cool to see how much you've progressed in painting. i'm getting a wacom soon, and hopefully will learn myself
I love what you do with colors man. You've got a really unique style. Keep up all this excellent digital stuff. Thanks for stopping by my sketchbook and giving me a chance tot peek at yours; I'll be dropping by to check your updates for sure.

Hey Jamie, and thanks again for stopping by.
That still life is coming along nicely, man. I'll still try to give some hopefully constructive critisism: Right now the colors look a bit dull. I'd say you should try to bring more hue and temperature variation to the picture to help the shadows separate from the lights better. Also pay close attention to the values in the shadows, so that they don't cross into the value range of the light.
Of course I don't know what kind of lighting conditions you have there, but that's how it seems to me. Getting your still lifes and colors to really look 'alive' and real is pretty damn hard, but that's why we should practise every day.
Anyways, keep on studying, man. The dedication of the Crimson Daggers gang will eventually be rewarded.

gabs-Awsome bridgemen and loomis are crazy artists I have alot of trouble studying loomis everythings just to perfect. Bridgemen on the other hand I really enjoy studying his work its so abstract makes your mind think of shapes and whatnot.
ismo-Hey sup man thanks for the crit i totally agree with you on the colors they are dull. With my lighting conditions i made a still life box thing? I have a peice of cardboard with a hole cut on top with the light shining down. Its pretty neat you can have a peice of paper and adjust light settings. Ill have to do some studys about color there playing tricks on me.
Jabo-thanks for droping by, yeah I gotta remeber to paint just to have fun and paint. Sometimes i get so caught up with studys and stuff I miss out on the point of why I started painting in the first place.
Railey h studys these took him 5 minutes... they took me forever I tried my best to do the whole less is more thing. I did so many undos in this study.
