    Glad to see you made a sketchthread! Your enviros are breathtaking, got a full folder of them so I can study them, real beauty there. It's also nice seeing something else from you, those gesture have so much power to them, really good stuff. 5 stars from me!

    jermonster , DStraX , Braintree , AsaB : Thanks Folks.

    A couple more life drawing gestures from yesterday evening

    Probably not that successful, but we all have on and off days. Also its been a couple weeks since I had a female model. Hopefully they will start to pull together a bit more over the next few sessions.



    SO here we go 1 to 10 min gestures

    Also a little bit of a WIP Enviroment I will post the finished version this evening if I am not tired to finish it after work.

    The leviathan of the EOW finally shows his underbelly. I like the way you always sneak in those symbolic white bird flocks of freedom - they help intensify the largeness of scale and just increase the overall beauty of the presentation. Anyways, long live birds and long live this sketchbook.

    Keep doing you

    Glorious amazingness! The Home environment is especially wonderful. I'd love to see a process or tutorial video from you someday.

    The Temple of Courage

    Deep in the heart of the Dark Continent is the Temple of courage.
    Valiant Knights journey to the temple to prove thier worthiness within its walls. Facing many trials only the most courageous of warriors will survive the temple and cross the bridge to begin thier journey home.

    I am not happy with this, but a few things learnt, onwards and upwards as they say.

    I had a quiet sunday and I spent an enjoyable day painting this image.
    The lighting is a little inspired by The Hudson river school painters who I greatly admire.

    Awesome stuff you've got here, even tho i'm a beginner i'll let myself crit one thing (hope u wont hate me for that :] ) The Lion statues are turned too much to the right, to fix that i would turn them more towards viewer, or turn the huge lionface sculpted in the mountain more like you did it with lion statues,
    Best wishes, ICE

    Unhappy Enviro

    I like the grimness and contrast of subways stations in different districts of cities.
    This is one from a less affluent area.

    I tried to play with a theatrical style of lighting and also to try and create movement in a static enviroment.

    I painted this over last weekend.

    ps:
    I think the image is abit stale and not a very exciting piece, more an exercise, so I have decided to smash it up a bit and do a paint over, add a monster ripping it apart! WIll post soon.
