Three-odd hour image sequence which i'm kindof happy with. Figuring out colour blending more than anything else.

Just had a chance to enjoy your SB, awesome stuff. The pen/ink studies and sketches are so confident, they say a whole lot with those strokes, love the gestures. Thx for dropping by my SB, I'll add some more thx with my next update.
Looking forward to following your work, inspiring!
Don't think I've ever stumbled in your sketchbook or commented. Excellent concepts etc. Love the photos too!
Following the tracks to Simonstown. July 2011.
Your photography skills are great sir, I enjoyed every one of them from the begginning of this SB. The wedding ones are pretty beautiful and expressive. Do you usually enhance colors in them? I also noticed an evolution from your first washed ink works (close to surrealism and abstract) to the last ones, more focused and realistic. The last ones are getting very tight! Maybe you could try to use more color treatment on them... or maybe paint color directly, one day?
thanks for sharing, I will be back for sure!
Here are the scraps for today.
Here's a photoset from a recent family trip to Kimberley, a significant place in South African (and world) history. Look it up.
Quick colour study plus a signpost I shot(puns away!) three years ago, and again this week. Someone must've been bored bored...
Thanks for dropping in!
Your photography work looks great! Nice composition and choices of focal points.
Your sketches seem to be hastily done. While this can be nature of sketching out an idea, these seem to lack focus and direction.
The painting you are working on, I can't really tell where the focal point is and most of the values are in the mid range. I know that it's not done but make sure that you've got the value groupings right.
I like your digital paintings a lot. I'm a sci-fi nerd myself. I really like the mech suit piece you have. I think the background values you've added are so light against the darker mid and fore grounds that it draws attention aware from the subject (which seems to be the focal point of the piece). Maybe you could place an "obscure" light source (in the green range) that lies just ahead of him that projects onto the suit so that it can simultaneously bring more attention to the subject and define the form of his suit more. Another idea is to also add a reddish orange light within the helmet area to accentuate the subject's face more to further draw the viewer's eye in. You could also crop the piece on the right side a bit. Of course, these are only suggestions.
You've got good work here! Keep the goods coming!
