    here i made a sketch of some forest knight, wonder if hes just hanging out, guarding the path into it, or the way out! is he a ghost?

    but I didn't like it too much, a bit too cartoony and the viewing angle wasn't so nice, I wanted something more moody, and I realize (after some thought) that the most important aspect as far as scenic atmosphere is concerned is those big, basic planes. How do they change as they go across, how does the light act and change on them? I always heard big shapes was the key, but thinking about planes is what helps me, we are 3d creatures so maybe 2d isn't such a great way to think.

    some other sort of warrior, I imagine he would jump out and say
    "Your goose is cooked good sir!"
    and then set to killing...

    another knight, I had a different picture in mind when I started, so would've been worth it to do some thumbs, just to understand the big forms, the background isn't interesting enough either

    today I finished an asian sort of interior I was working on. With these things you can separate the planes on layers to work the lighting but I need to figure out a more economical way to do it, maybe only the strongly separated planes at first- needed to sketch more really, to get loose and really figure out the basic forms and view of the image, and that surface movement

    Great looking sketchbook. I think you could save time on your environments and maybe make them look cleaner by using a larger brush on places like the columns and not adding so much texture everywhere. I love the finished look and color scheme. That lanterns work well.
    Keep posting.

    Mokhi-thanks for the suggestion! Sometimes I'll waste a bit of time with textures, and usually its cause I know I want something on the surface but haven't really decided exactly what-then the licking commences arrgh!

    karantina-thanks! You will see more.

    I painted a horsey, its unfortunately pointing the same direction as the last one,like an echo lol...

    heres some

    been playing with new brushes, trying to get some good brushes for broad effect-all I really do is take a normal brush, stamp it, then make a pattern out of it, then make a block of the pattern into a big brush
    Attachment 1078778
    pretty fun just playing with black and white, just smearing around the shapes with the smudge tool
    Attachment 1078782

    then I wasted a bunch of time on this one-I really want to get good at doing architectural stuff, I suck at sketchup so it'l take time. Also Just knowing how light acts on the materials-some outdoors landscape painting will help nicely I think... Gotta understand the surface planes, not just the edges like with line!
