Velocity Kendall, Thanks!
Jauny, aw thanks! you're very kind C: I will post more
Samurai Nik, Thanks! I'm actually learning digital painting too. I'm still not very good, but I do find it easier to start a painting if there's color and texture in the background.
Some people start from grayscale and then apply color using another layer, this method is actually recomended if you're a beginner, and there are even professional artists that work in this way (it's easier to get the lightning and composition properly). Perhaps you could try that method and see how it works out for you!
here's some practice with photoshop

good stuff so far. But your anatomy is lacking in places. Try studying some serious Loomis, and do more work from life !

D: them environments! I will post them monsieur! but so far I've nothing worthy of showing
yes, I do like to use Mudbox to model, and it's easier and more fun than getting the topology done in 3ds max. But I still should know the topology, since I'm going into Game Design after all!
now some stuff, before I start seriously drawing environments lol

Thanks for dropping by and leaving a comment in my sketchbook, it's been a while.
You seem a little inconsistent, with pieces like faviola and dragonbird working better than 21sb.jpg or 14.jpg.
I'm not sure how to go about making things consistent, other than practice, but I know that's something an art director would look for, although that may not apply in an environment artist's portfolio.
I suspect you use black to paint in shadows. You should look deeper into how light works to figure out what colors to use. Warm lights will cast cool shadows, ambient light will brighten shadows, etc.

thought Id have a look at your sketchbook, I like the ballpoint drawings and the skull rendering especially. Thx for sharing. I like ballpoint, very convinient and cheap tool.
Have a look at my SketchbookThanks!

Hamsta, hey nice to see you dropping by!
Yes I see what you're saying about inconscistency. I guess I should start having higher standards and paying more attention to what I'm doing.
eh I try not to use black, the whole shadow being the color of the ambient light is something I'm beginning to understand and practice, it's kind of hard since I've been used to thinking of shadows as black almost my entire life.
Thanks for pointing these problems out. I'll definetly work to improve on these.
jamtob2, Hey! Thanks! Yes that's why started using them haha, nothing beats pencil though C: in my humble opinion.
Now more stuff.
eh I wasn't gonna post this cause it's anime-ish, but I kind of like how the skintones turned out.
A study with pastels of a painting in oils by David Leffel. I should say a failed study.
I was trying to learn this whole painting with pastels business, studying skintones, and how to paint by massing the form instead of outline.
an apple and plantain
I find my stuff looks very kiddish, so I'm trying to do more life paintings and stuff :/
