Really inspiring work here man. I really enjoy the energy, color, and atmosphere that you put into your paintings. Your going in the right directions so just keep on working hard. The only thing that I could see overall to watch for is arbitrary mark making, where the marks don't really add anything to describe the form or light. It leaves a sketchy quality on the image which is nice but at the same time can take the viewer away from the beauty of the imagery because it is a distraction. I know you have shared your brush set but would you mind talking a bit about your process when starting a painting from imagination? Keep it up man, I might just have to do some studies of your works to help improve the energy of my works.

NickyBeats - Thanks for stopping by and for opinions
dan liimatta - Thank you very much
rumpenstiltzkin - Thanks a lot, glad you like them
Ninjac - Thank you very much for opinions, i appreciate this very much, it's really helpful.
My process isn't always the same - sometimes i start with b&w sketch, sometimes with color. Usually i have some idea first, but sometimes i just start drawing without knowing exactly what i want to create and spend a lot of time on experimenting - which i think is great way to improve. I'll try to save the process of my work some day, but i'm not sure it would be interesting :p Anyway thanks again for stopping by
Few photostudies and eow's:
Wow, very nice! Your environments are indeed very good.
Great use of color and light. I hope I can pull that off one day too!
Inspirational stuff, thanks!

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."
