    Nice pen and ink sketches, Zorcron! Thanks for giving me pointers on my sketchbook. I think your abstract piece is very interesting. As for the Asian man painting, to my eyes, the sides of his face looks slightly wider than how it is in the photo. That's probably the only part that looks off. Your colors are great and I like your brushstrokes.

    You should try painting bigger landscapes, the old school way. Drawing small at the scene then make it bigger when home

    ive finished up this stage of the painting im going to go with what konstruktion and a few other people said

    get a large canvas to paint from this ^ ^should be fun

    im pretty sure those blues help the horizon get pushed back O.o


    i learned a lot doing this one (about the paticular painting ) so when i scale it up it wont be so bad seeing as i have already discovered much about it

    Hey all heres a WIP of a frozen wintery scene because its so FREAKING hot where i live , today (so far a couple hours it took me a while geting set up with a composition that wasnt killing my eyes )
    its also been a while since i wasnt studying somthing from ref but il look at some snow /wintery ref before i do more


    also im painting on a big canvas 36 by 32 and scaling up
    that landscape painting i was working on ,so far so good il have in progress pics soon

    wooo i have been in the zone with art in general lately i feel much more comfortable with my paints and its time to do some
    groundbreaking things (for me anyways) with my digital abilities

    thanks all (ugh i went small brushes too soon yet again! il scale up my brushes them perhaps come
    in with a bit of texture) get some figures in there or some birds to give scale also

    i really want it to have an epic scale so il probably push the horizon a bit more in to the distance

    maybe some of those wicked wierd icy reflections too with snow drift il get some prominant ice and snow in the foreground also to give some referance

    just thought birds probably is not a good idea seeing as its supposed to be some crazy hard wintery arctic scene

    Nice composition and idea on this latest piece. I think you should stop scribbling and stop using black and white to lighten and darken colours, just adjust the value. I did a paintover to show you how using a bigger brush makes the ideas much clearer, and it saves a lot of time, this only took a few minutes. When I was doing it I noticed you went into detail in certain areas, when at this point you should just be considering values and colours etc. My paintover is kindof rubbish but i think it gets the point across. If you don't like it or something, pm me and I'll take it down

    better ? i want to take this one to the next level il spend days and days on it XD

    the cliff in the backround should be more muted i just noticed .. it reads alright as thumbnail anyways haha thats step one

    time to take a walk ive been staring at this screen for far too long

    plopped a figure in there for human scale and i want it to seem like hes fighting everything to trudge
    on i think the placement between him and that end of the valley or what ever it is will help

    obviously its not time to refine things yet but i wanted to see what that would look like before i went further

    kick in the butt of a start lad! especially I liked the ships on page 1 tons of potential.
    you are doing fine keep drawing from life and photos you will think that you are not improving but you will! against your will! that's the part I like the most
    keep all of your old work dont delete it, you will see after a year or two the difference...
    cheerS!

    Hey, wanted to say thanks for stepping by, and giving me advice.. I checked your sketchbook out, I liked those that you had in your first post, also the out door paintings are cool.. I hope to see that arctic painting finished soon ..Would give you some advice, but the thing is that I don't nothing about painting.

    Hey,

    your work looks nice, your traditional paintings are your best works. Just keep working on the tonal values, and making things more smooth on places where it needs to be more smooth.
    I'd love to see some sketches from imagination aswell.

    Keep it up!
