    Sebestian: More paintings? I'll get right on that. Thanks.

    Helltroll: Sweet, man! Looking forward to it.

    Since it's my one year anniversary of digital speedpainting, I thought I'd get back into it. Had a blast doing this. It's nice not having to worry about finish/rendering for a change.

    It was a pleasure to browse these 7 pages, man. I'll definitely be coming back!

    You've shown a lot of improvement, particularly with facial structure. Keep those portraits coming! (and your enviros are great, too, obviously :p)

    staticpen: Thanks! Improvement's always hard to see when you're in the trenches, so to speak, so having this sketchbook here to chart my progress is a great source of encouragement. And the great people that comment on it, too.

    If anyone's interested, I've finally got a blog! I've already posted a few examples of my process of making images. Figured some people might find it interesting.

    At long last, the pencil drawings return! Woo! I've been looking for a new way to go about designing enviros lately, so I came up with first doing a drawing in pencil and working from there. So far I've just got a few drawings down, but I already like where this is heading--can't wait to start painting. I've also got a few character drawings I might have to paint up when I get a chance. Enjoy!

    Yeah, pencils! Glad to see them. A lot of cool stuff in this batch. One of your overhead enviro sketches here reminds me a little bit of some village studies by Mattias Adolfsson. He's a master with line if you've never heard of him. Check him out here and be instantly inspired!

    Thanks for the link, staticpen. That's some awesome stuff that guy has. Definitely inspired now.

    Another character sketch.

    A wasp sting has left my drawing hand a little worse for wear, but I'll recover. Here's the current wips of those character concepts.

    If it's alright, I'm using the Sunset speed-paint as my Desktop, it's fantastic! Sorry about the wasp sting, that must suck.

    I've still never been stung by anything. I count myself lucky!

    I'm most interested in the last two. The first one lacks any sort of direction for me, like it's too simple. I can't tell if he's a fierce warrior or a simpleton who found a sword and a shield and doesn't really know how to use them. For me, the facial expression and pose keep me from fearing him. When you think about nature, things that curve in on themselves are in positions of submission or defense, such as how a dog's tail curves underneath, or how some desert animals and bugs roll into balls when attacked. On the other hand, bears and gorillas stand upright when posturing, and cobras perk up and spread their hoods to threaten. I realize the anatomy of the creature creates the spinal curve, but that's what I mean about the pose. By moving the angle around you can find one that allows you to keep the anatomical structure while still sending a character message more clearly. Basically, I get mixed signals from the concept right now... should I be afraid of him or feel sorry for him?
    Digging the other two, though, man. The girl is poised and the layout is quick to the point. With the water creature, though, the first thing that came to mind that could pop it to the next level was glowing stuff in the tentacles, like a jellyfish.

    Keep up the good work, man!

    jcole60: Glad to hear that thing's going to good use. Enjoy.

    staticpen: Y'know, I was just thinking a week ago that it had been ages since I had been stung by anything... Figures. Thanks a ton for the input--definitely plenty to think about. I've finished up the bride image and posted it elsewhere, but still have plenty of work on the others. I really like the jellyfish idea for the tentacle dude... that could work.

    My rough colors for a couple of those enviros:
