    thanks for commenting on my SB. I love that rikshaw painting! the values really help it read well. I like that the interior feels like an actual space and the vehicle feel nicely seated in its environment. Nice whimsical use of color too. keep thinking in terms of simple value to make these images pop. good job, keep it up

    i love that black sheep speed paint, it really made me laugh on your image with the guy in the bear suit his right hand seems a bit long & the girl's hips seem a bit low so it's making her legs seem short. hope that helps i like the attitude you give your characters

    Looking good! If you do decide to blend the sky in, be careful with your paint strokes...be sure they are following a natural flow. For example, looking above the guy on the left. Follow way above his head to the where the clouds are forming a peak. Here you can see the paint flowing up them over and down. This flattens the cloud a bit. If the same space was made of up horizontal strokes or a series of smaller curved strokes it give more depth. Great mood - keep it up.

    very nice contrast in the last one, nice colors and all, i only think that the clouds can be worked a bit more. but that's really just fine tuning

    good start an keep it up!

    looks good, i think there's a lack of clouds on the upper left & right though, on the left there's plenty clouds right above the house but the space above those is a bit empty, or maybe they just need a bit more rendering

    Personally I like the bluish variation the most

    Judging from where the sun is, the characters and the rock they are standing on should have some rim light I think. Something subtle, to not ruin the image, which is already beautiful as it is

    Also, are the clouds supposed to be something? One of them looks like some kind of animal\monster stretching his arm to touch something

    Hello hello! I like your study. In your previous works your forms/edges need some more definition I think. Continue to work work work! I'd like to see more studies too!

    Hey maria, its good to see you here!
    You need to work on your color contrast to push and pull objects to be in focus. The landscape you are working on is coming out nice, Do lots of more of such sort. I like the defined edges. Do look at forms environmentoring classes in mentoring section. Very helpful info there.

    Interesting and a bit crazy ideas ) Liked this vehicle and sundown ) So far all enviro's are good, but i guess you lack skills in character drawings. Good luck in the future )

    The colors and treatment on that last enviro are very nice. The foreground plane is a bit too dull, compared to the other elements though.
