    The extra time really paid off on it. To me it actually has a bit of a 3d feel to it (err like 3d program, which I mean as a compliment).

    And yeah his new stuff is looking crazy.

    skMOP: Thanks man! That is a huge compliment!

    Alright, so I figured I better not let that last study go to waste and did a super quick portrait from my mind. It was honestly really fast...I dunno the exact time, but probably like 10-20 minutes.

    I dig your traditional work. Really nice Bridgman studies! For digital I would definitely slow down and focus more on structure and drawing. Good luck with the portfolio!

    eekolite: Thanks man! I did fee la bit of a level up with those haha, let's hope it continues.

    Marian Rowling: Thanks! I'm applying to the Illustration program at Sheridan.

    h2rra: Thank you for the crit! I'm gonna do some more long studies I think then.

    Okay, so just a speedpaint without any ref. I based the colours vaguely on some mental notes I took while waiting at the bus stop (but I forgot most of it because there was like 5 hours between painting it and when I was taking the mental notes).

    I really hated this piece but then got my girlfriend to do some heavy critiques and now I am sort of actually pleased with it. Sort of. I don't really know haha.

    I think I will start working soon on a portfolio to get some commissions now that I have finished with my portfolio to get into art school.

    hey man
    think of using either the lasso tool or a really sharp brush or unsharp edges filter to bring out some extra sharp edges (when working with photoshop everything tends to get a bit soft)
    that portrait sketch is looking good
    and yeah I just sent a PM to Jason (happy now )

    I really love the composition on this piece. The horizontal thirds just gives it great weight and, combined with the really energetic marks, keeps the eye moving around. I think the color is really fun, too, murky but still warm.

    The problem I'm having in viewing this piece is establishing why I'm viewing it. I feel like there needs to be some sort of investigation or argument. It's not a study, so the goal isn't to represent from observation, but its not entirely imaginative either, so there's not really a feeling of exploring an idea. I feel like if you're going to flush it out, it may help to think about emphasizing the most important parts by rendering them more clearly, or otherwise adding some sort of point of view about this space.

    I really am not sure that I know how you feel about it other than its quiet and pretty, but I feel like the space has a lot of potential as a story-ground and as a really engaging piece. Give us something in the image to struggle with and think about, maybe? Like is the building more important than nature? Are we admiring man's skill? Are the plants more important? Has the snow taken over EVERYTHING? How do you feel about this space?

    I feel like those are questions I've found helpful in viewing and working on landscape, so hopefully they can help you too. Beautiful work though. I really admire your work!

    hunchback: Already sent you a PM.

    Ryan: Thanks, yeah I should haha! I like that one a lot though...

    xinranliu: Thanks! I just did a study using the lasso tool, then didn't use it in my speedpaint--d'oh! And yeah I also PM'ed Randis about it, but haven't heard back yet.

    autumn: Thanks! I really wasn't thinking of ANY of that. It was a quick speedpaint, but those are great things to be aware of for more final paintings.

    Dennis: Haha, you gotta go on MSN more...I'm always there (of course the six hours difference probably doesn't help).

    Pixelherder: Thank you! I will keep updating until...forever.

    Alright, so this isn't the greatest of updates. I have some life drawings to photograph too...but until then here are some crappy things.

    First, a 45 minute studydome I did with Bapsi.
    Attachment 1184552

    Next, a quick shitty sketch for COW that I won't finish.
    Attachment 1184554

    Then a WIP photostudy that I will bring to a high level of finish hopefully.
    Attachment 1184557

    And lastly, a WIP for a poster for my school's production of A Midsummer Night's Dream. I've never read the play, and don't really know what it is about. I was told to draw a whimsical and magic forest with fairies though...so yeah. Probably nothing like the play haha. But I have to do this for volunteer hours in order to graduate high school.
