INSANE work Mateja!!
Those landscapes are simply stunning, and such a clear display of a great talent for covering all the themes in the genre.
Wonderful work on those pencilled characters also, great variety there also. As for commenting on them, there isn't too much that springs to mind. You might want to watch out for the proportions in the arms, for example that male character who is swinging the polearm weapon seems to have some possible errors in his right arm with regards to joint movement and overall proportions.
Keep up the great work, it is an inspiration to us all!!

I will see to prepare my self on some stuff. And i will also post brief here in sb, so you guy can come with some ideas.
I won't promise i will read them , but maybe they can come handy.
Also i won't talk much, but i will see to explain some stuff that might be interesting
If you guys/girls remember i made tutorial in my SB on page 24 how to create "swatch" palette from photo. It wasn't real swatch palette, it was just firlter that create photo into squares.
So here is tutorial were you can actually create swatches out of photo.
This is very good method if you want to learn from masters, to see what color they use to create some great works, or any photo you like for that matter.
First i have choose this painting from Sorolla
Then i use my method to create mosaic out of it, or to simplify colors in painting(you can skip this if you find that you are loosing some colors)
Then next step is to go to Image/Mode/Indexed Color.
Here you have option to choose 256 colors as maximum. You can choose lower amount of colors, or just few, it's up to you
Then choose one of options, for this i have chosen Local (Perceptual), but here is entire list of choices
Next step, go to Image/Mode/Color Table
Next, ok now we have entire image as swatches. You can delete, replace or add any color you want, or leave it as it is
Last step. Save it. It will automatically save it in swatches folder under *.ACT
All you have to do is go to your swatches window and choose option Replace and choose your color palette
And that's it.
Hope this tutorial help you to create some awesome art
