Hey! I fell in love with your ChoW and headed over. Glad I did! It's awesome to see someone basing their work in solid drawing foundation. Wonderful work in here! Also, I'm a huge fan of the French illustration movement, too - thanks for the link!
I'll be around!

I really like your CHOW entry - the colours in the painting looked great and I like the idea of Mother Nature as an old woman (different to most of the other concepts people came up with).
Digging your SB - lots of really great studies! Keep up the good work.

Staticpen No problems dude, I love sharing all the great stuff you can find out there. Thanks for the nice comments
Wilko Thanks very much dude
Cameli Yeah its shame but like they say 'its the taking part' that counts.
Teapo Yeah, its a pretty distracting game. I can spend hours just 'trotting' my horse around the map admiring the sunsets and beauty of it all. Its a time waster at heart.... Worth it though!

Seriusly nice CHOW entry - its a stupid question but how do you go about entering that ? lol. I like the 15 minutes landscape, Im still waaaaaaaaay far away from creating anything like that (regardless of time limit) - enviro's seem really daunting even with some knowledge of perspective I've gotten from books! Impressed you churn them out

Staticpen Yeh I have it, I think its pretty damn good. Especially from a visual standpoint - not like just plain graphics - but atmosphere and the western feel of the game. Its all very good. Youd need a good week to rent/play it - its still pretty long. Easily 20 hours I reckon.
Ostroponis Cheers dude!
Tom You literally go over to the CHOW forum, and post it once youve done it. Its every sunday-to-sunday, and normally its good etiquette to post some WIPs as you go in the thread, its good for getting some crits and ideas on your piece to. Its nothing serious though, its just about everyone learning and producing cool themed work.
Enviros are just practice. Its just about seeing the landscape and knowing how it works and painting it. Your pretty much always just painting a real landscape that exists so you just gotta know it.
Another 15 minuter.

I love those last enviros. It's funny i was looking at them thinking they looked reminiscent to red dead redemption then read your post about spending time trotting around the environment admiring it and lol'd. Yeah that's a great game, it's amazing what they did with what basically is a bunch of desert environments, who knew they could be so breathtaking, and such a great source of artistic inspiration. Anyway, great sketchbook, keep it up!
"I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain."

Thank you for the great critique, you explained well how to go about fixing one of the most important things in my work at the moment.
From looking at your own work, I also get the idea of how important it is to measure properly and to maintain a sense of proportion. Your body studies in particular are very good because of this.
For your landscape things, you may want to look at a bit more contrast between fore and backgrounds with colour value. Also, for interest's sake, that is if you want a focal point in your painting at any stage, then consider one element to be larger than the others, so that it creates a bit of imbalance and focus in the piece.
Have fun with your next piece. =)
