    Hmm. I missed the usb post. Looks really good! I can't stand converting colours from life to digital for some reason, so I commend you. Look at the enviros though.... where is the focal point in most once again? And what's wrong with a square canvas? Just because its a landscape doesn't mean that the orientation has to match. How about a challenge: you do a landscape with a canvas of a 8 to 3 ratio vertical?

    Pencils: avoid smudging too much as you tend to lose form that way. (absolutely freaky teeth set though and love the mushroom)

    woah! Thanks everyone for your comments! im glad the first page is over, it was getting very slow to load with all the pictures, but very mutch appreciated!

    sketchy Joel: Thanks alot, im glad u liked it!
    Verehin Wow thanks man! I hope you will enjoy=)!
    Eerin Thanks! they all dont come out good=), but im glad you like it anyway! I hope you will enjoy my future art !
    Pixie Trick heh thanks, yeh it can be tricky, I think it can be hard, I really struggle with to see colors sometimes, like for example, if it is alot of warm colors, a cool color can be misstaken for like blue, thats what u would think, but in reality it can be very grey green or something, colors affect eachother so mutch its funny=).

    Focal point is tricky, I need to think more about those.

    yeh I dont think its anything wrong with square canvas but I think its more rare, havnt seen too many of them, thats maybe why I tend to have them to be more widescreenish or tall.

    I will try your challange!=)

    IanE Wow thanks alot! really thanks! im glad to see so many people enjoy following sketchbooks!, I will keep sharing I hope you will enjoy!
    S.I.O.R Thanks alot! yeh its something I trying to work on, less digital more brushy=)
    tandy1000 Thanks alot, yeh maybe I am, I do enjoy concept art alot=)

    Tried to start an enviroment abit diffrently, they tend to lean abit more "colorfull" when I do so, not sure if liked this but it was made fairly fast, alot of indications.

    This one was also started the same, basicly I started it with the blue/grey color you see in the background, and after I just take a dark color and a soft brush and just paint some crazy shapes, after that I just make shapes abit harder towards the foreground and darker with whatever brush i like not as soft, it sort of creates a atmosphere perspective to work from, than u can add details, roads and stuff, its quite fun.

    Awesome stuff, a lot of different designs and every one of them has its own personality.
    Makes you feel like they're alive. Can't wait to see more.

    Sweet update! Great hand studies; I also love that wicked star/moon wand/weapon thing. Its very funky xD The two environments are fantastic. I love their color scheme. You've got a sensitive eye for color palettes. =)

    This is the thumbnail of the picture above, not really the same but yeh, it
    was just a quick start a "plan".
    I decided to try make a 3d model, I learned you
    could have different styles for the render in sketchup, which was like mega perfect, this is something I gonna start using, you basicly get a lineart, which I prefer over something with values.

    This is just some study I decided to do when I was doing an enviroment, I
    decided to find something I did not intend to add, by looking at pictures of
    the subject (jungle) and pick an object and do some sort of study of it, simple
    but usefull.

    Nice to see the 8x3 one. It looks like you loosened up, a bit more abstract and just let your mind go a bit. The idea about adding an element to an image that you hadn't planned on is neat too. I love the shack in the rain. It looks so peaceful and the puddles make me want to splash in them.

    Diverse Thanks alot im glad you liked them!, I will try to keep it up than=)
    Pixie Trick Yo thanks alot! im glad you liked it, it helped me alot I think, In still not as "loose" as I should be, but its just something that gets better the more you draw, exploring the concepts sort of, and also study buildings designs and other stuff will help improving the amount of stuff u know in your brain sort of, like I have a tendecy to draw same trees because I dont know how the design of other trees, so if you study it you will have a wider range of trees to paintXD.
    localfatheaded Thanks you!, yeh I know the feeling thats why I do
    characters here and there too,often after being inspired by other artists!
    monotony Cheers thank you, im glad they inspire!=) I hope to see you
    back than! =)
    Cacodaemonia Thanks alot! im glad u liked them! I will try to record some work, I got it setup, but it will probably be later next month if so, I still dont have too mutch experience with painting enviroments myself=9

    Yesterdays work, I was suppose to upload them than.
    But I decided not too because they all had some big issues so I sort of tried
    to fix most of them, They still got issues but I dont feel like spending too
    mutch time on small enviroments, they are sort of just for practice, coming up with new stuff, design and yeh whatever=9.

    A jungle piece, tried to go little crazy with the shapes, you can see I used the
    smudge brush which I sort of fallen in love with recently, you can see it easily to the left of the picture, basicly take a brush that has
    some random pattern or whatever u desire, paint in on a new layer, than smudge it, but its good to leave hard edges in it to keep in intressting.

    Enviroment from photo, I hate the look of these, basicly I took a photo not far from home, and decided to do a small enviroment practice out of it.

    It got the same color/sky and features like grass and trees as the real life photo, but I changed the location, but yeh it just doesnt look
    that good in my eyes, the colors were rather desaturated compared to what I normally use.

    Seriously??? That's crazy!

    This new set looks great. I like the addition of the small figures and campfire, to sort of gives a size reference. The atmosphere of the third one is especially gorgeous, and I'm really intrigued by the glowing figures in the last two.

    In the first one, I think maybe the underside of the log/vine should have more reflect light on it from the stream. And in the third image, the highest overhang seems too thin. It doesn't seem realistic that it would still be attached to the hill, hehe.

    Keep it coming!

    I have to subscribe to this, It's great to read about your process on environment. Looking forward to your later tutorials, as I would greatly need them on my environmental conquests.

    I'm looking forward to a process too! I'm not sure I would get toooo attached to smudgie brush if I were you. Too much of a good thing yada yada... And just think of all the canvases you could have. Round, hexagonal, irregular quadrilateral, snake shaped.....fun, fun, fun!! hehe

    ...so, some crits if you want them....

    #1: I think the foreshortening on the closest tree could be looked at . It looks like you wanted it to be coming more towards the viewer than it currently looks like (from the shape) and the curve of the vines/moss aren't agreeing with that. Pushing some of the contrast around the rocks area might be a good idea too, to bring them out more. The rocks are reflected in the water, but the light area tree isn't. The chunk of tree trunk in the top left corner is a bit distracting too.

    #2: It's quite nice. Some photos just don't make good painting practice.

    #3: You have to watch details when shifting things. When you originally painted the image, the vines etc. were hanging down. Now they are floating out into the ether. You might want to watch the shapes of your outcrops too. They look remarkably alike and as cacodaemonia, a bit unrealistic. Doesn't mean you can't paint them, just depends on what you want.

    #4: Nice. Umm... not sure what else to say.

    #5: I love this one. Makes me happy inside for some glowy unknown reason. Some foreshortening issues on the closest tree again, but very nice.

    on what you pointed out, I think I went with too crazy shapes for the mountain painting, too thin=).
    And yeh it probably would have more reflective light underneath on the jungle picture, will try to remember it and do it better next time!=).
    Alm0st Cheers thanks so mutch!, I hope you will have a great time here! I will for sure share my experience on enviroments one day in a video, hopefully talking too ,on youtube=9!, but for now stick with Whit Brachna.
    Its quite hard to do one tho, since I have learned from the internet, Whit Brachna and other ofcourse other people, hard to come up with something usefull to say I would imagen. theirforce I need more practice! yay!.
    engelhardt Hello Engelhardt! thanks, im very glad you liked them!
    Pixie Trick Thanks like always! I will try to remember and work on my issues for future paintings! I will probably reread everything in this sketchbook in a soon future, because my memory is like a goldfish, just to make sure I learn them and not repeat them too mutch hah.

    But yeh, I will try to not overuse smudge, I do tho think it has its few good uses, i just need to experiement and find them.

    1. yeh i do agree, I think the issue was I made the moss/viens with was applied last didnt follow the form perfectly, hard to explain, but its like it could fit a larger/wider tree underneath it, but yeh dont think it would hurt to have it abit larger there. yeh the reflection, I sort of decided to not draw it in there for some reason, I was aware of it but just not sure how it would show up, but I can see it clearly in my mind now, will try to improve on my future water!

    2 yeh thats probably true

    3 yeh just a image of fail =)

    4 True that

    5 Yeh I should practice forshortings more=)
    mike butkus thanks im glad u liked them!

    Thanks for your comments, anyway im off to bed now, very tired!, goodnight everyone

    Todays quick stuff, created some random shape brush and "accidently" made these uhm space ships of some sorts, was very inspired from gnomons video "From Speedpainting to Concept Art" I think its a great way to create buildings, ship and whatever random design=9. but I like to have my backgrounds more "paintery" feeling over it.

    its really hard to tell if stuff are wrong or not without a like a day break from the pictures or atleast a few hours, doesnt really help all the times to flip and flop the picture, its more for drawing issues I guess.

    But I think im gonna fix some of the ground issues underneath the white spaceship tomorrow when I wake up, I will just update the same picture.

    The black shapeship probably blend in abit mutch, hard to tell, it get better the longer you look at it!!!;(( ah well I will have to move on and make new paintings tomorrow!

    I must say, you do not disappoint. If you don't mind me asking, what is your current profession? Cuz this is amazing and if you are not being paid big bucks then you are in the wrong business.
