    Am I insane? Why is everyone complimenting the paintover I did... Is there some glitch where it says Black Spot posted it, or are people just not reading closely?

    The William Etty's Bun Fight study looks a bit muted too me. I'm not sure how the original painting looks though.

    Make a sketchbook happy, feed it a tip to improve!

    Thanks for all the comments guys. I will be getting back to it, but I've been busy storyboarding my animation.

    ThomasM, yes, they are all digital. Raffix, I might manage it this year. Karyl, I just use a round brush, but I do vary the opacity. My software doesn't have brush like PS, but I know you can import some of them. TAS, thanks for your effort. Pigeonkill, the picture is made up of 10 different studies, which were all painted in daylight. It was only loosely based on them. If you Google William Etty, you might be able to spot them vaguely.

    you are working with colors very good they are used wisely in your drawings , but it will be better if you use some lights , a single light from single source is grate for beginning .

    Time to get back to doing backgrounds for my animation. I've realised that I need tons more and some I've done aren't suitable at all.

    Starting with bits of London that are not on the tourist trail - council estates. These are all from the same estate, which is being knocked down thank goodness; it's totally soulless.

    All done with vectors and referenced from Google Street View.

    you have some really nice pieces up. i truly like your usages of colors and your creations of texture and lighting. there is a lot of expression in your paintings as well, even when you are copying famous works. i would say though, that there seems to be something "unreal" about your faces. i can't quite place what the issue is, but i find your faces are lacking that certain umph that makes them human, but this is just my opinion.

    Fudge this AWESOME place!!!

    My SKETCHBOOK: please critique! i can take it!

    Wow, those are awesome! A bit subdued at first, but the sense of light and play of perspective is very evocative. You say they're soulless, and it's really emphasized in the work, yet there's a soul at work in the painting of them. I can see how all the painting studies influenced these. Great concrete textures, also. Got any more animation tests to show?

    I've very impressed with your backgrounds, especially the first one. It's delightfully complex and I just like moving my eye all around it. I think the colors you used for these really make the backgrounds seem very open.

    I hope you are proud of these.

    Cool BGs.

    Just a suggestion, but maybe add some atmospheric perspective to them? So that the building fade away into the sky color in the distance. And some shadows maybe. It looks pretty cool this way too, though.
