    Wow, man. I must say I'm impressed. It's a fantastic start and by the looks of it you'll only get better. Congratulations on fantastic sketches! I don't think I'll ever be able to draw such realistic looking pics.

    Oh yeah I remember seeing some of this on deviantart a week or so ago.

    Remember me? I'm the one who mentioned that the perspective on that gun is a little wacky.

    Anyway... the first image is great and I really like the city enviro and the brush testing enviro.

    Pretty good all around, keep it up.

    I am a fan. Great start you have here.

    Personally, if you're looking to fix the anatomy, I recommend doing studies from books from people like Loomis.

    You gotta delete all your other posts and put the image you want first in the attachments, I dont think there is any other way of putting an image first. Cool dylan cole environment, should work on tightening those shapes up, everything looks transparent.

    ninjacat11 - Thanks for the compliment and I will look into that for reference.

    Peter Stapleton - Thanks for the advice on the avatar thing. It worked! Also, thanks for the compliment on the "Cole" inspired piece. I agree some of the structures are a bit transparent. I am trying to watch for stuff like that now in my paintings. Thanks for the observation.

    you are on the right path, i would start with rendering one object first, then once you get comfortable with that, start moving into big scenes like this.

    Thanks for the comment.

    To kind of clarify something though, the point of this type of enviro sketch or "speed paint", is to imply detail rather than actually paint every little detail and not spend a ton to time on the piece. Ya know, just something to keep the "batteries charged"!

    This one (the canyon sketch) was done in just a little over two hours.

    Here is a little something I did recently with Prismacolor cool grey markers and a tech pen. Having fun doing some good old traditional drawing but man do I need to work on anatomy!

    Long time no update! Here is a character concept I started last night. Started with some quick thumbs and just went with one. Let me know if you find one of these interesting.

    Still working on anatomy, so I realize there are some issues here so far, but this is far from complete.
