    Woah, thats a painting? Thats ridiculously good.

    As for whats missing, I think its a foreground and middleground really. I'd just put in whatever the tree is sitting on and perhaps another hill/mountain in between the foreground and the background mountain.

    I absolutley love the walrus aswell! I'll check back!

    You might try to first block in a line sketch composition. Try using that Fibonacci stuff, or... maybe the rule of the thirds...

    For giving it more depth it's a good idea to have some similar object in the three plans so that the eye could have a sort of a reference point moving into the scene.

    Colour-wise a good tip is to try and avoid all-black areas. Darks - yes. Blacks - if any, only as accents here and there.

    Hey Eric! Really nice indication of form in that walrus! The matte painting shows promise too. The values/fore, mid, and background are all there, which is good Maybe try looking up some matte masters like Dylan Cole, Dusso, and try to study how they approach integrating photos and painting to make a seamless image.

    And sorry to answer your questions so late. I started drawing seriously like 2 years ago but I only started painting digitally since last year. Still dunno about college, it's really expensive here. I heard college in Germany is free/paid for by the govt? Amazing! D: Well I wish you luck in the reserves, college, or whatever you choose to do

    heyy .. college in germany isnt really "free" lol. it depends on what u study. like art is mostly private so u have to pay like 20.000€ .. atm im working on my portfolio so i can submit it to the artcenter in pasadena, ca. and if im lucky i might get a scholarship xD. i also wanted to submit my portfolio to TAD but i think submissions are closed already . i started drawing digitally last year in october when i got my first tablet as a bday present its very hard to get used to it and i still suck at it haha. mostly i draw in my sketchbook

    Hey Eric really liking your line work even on your quick gestures, how long did you spend on them? Also good job on the rendering on the walrus so far although it does look a little plasticy at the minute, but who am i to crit! haha. Keep up the SB mate!

    fudgeloaf: i usually spend bout 10 to 20 seconds on a gesture. thx for the comment

    AliceA: thx . i think my gestures suck but many people have told me that they are actually quite good.

    Twan: thx the nude took me bout 20minutes. it could be bit more detailed though...

    aLDoDarK: thx! usually i start all my work as a "practice" and not as "this has to come out as a finished illustration"..

    -----------------------------------------------------

    i will post some sketches, scribbles later on. my laptop just died again and i had to delete most of my files (including my .PSD files *cry*).. i bought a new HDD so i hope it'll work this time.. i am actually installing photoshop and my tablet right now.

    thx again to all the people who are visiting my sketchbook! and make sure to follow my blog, please.
