Peter K: I'll try and push the textures a little more in future and up the detail level. At the moment I tend to hit a point in a image when it comes to detail and end up not been sure where to go, I think working from reference will help and it's something I need to do more of.
BlazeF: I'm going to try and work in my sketchbook a little more to help me change things around and plan a more interesting image. I mainly just jump straight into photoshop and start painting which is why alot of it looks the same, and I tend to fall into a simular pattern that sort of works for me.
Thanks for the comments guys, I'll be sure to check both your sketchbooks out later today.
All promising beginnings with a ripe artistic quality I'm looking forward to explore, branch out, and become a foundation of it's own. What you should try doing is to work on each of your best pieces or the ones you feel are the ones with the most potential to be more than they are in their current states and expand on them. The first of the one's done last week is commendable, but I feel like it's missing something - maybe a forest canyon or a deep cave beyond the trees could be an idea. I noticed the trees on both sides are blurred, another of your unfinished prospects. I like your work a lot, please private message me the next time you update.
Some of these have really strong colour tonal range and colour choices...as others have said it would be nice to see you give a little more love to a piece or two-would be nice to see where you take things when you add more detail
daveneale – thanks for the comment, I totally agree about the detail and it’s something I need to try and work on, I think I fall into the trap of trying to paint to fast and want to move on before its really finished and sometimes I just get to a point where I don’t know where to take it and make things look worst. It's definitely something to think about for the next one.
