    Hi! The last pages of your sketchbook show some pretty immense improvement. You're definitely on the right track. Just keep on studying and you'll get there.

    LeaderofZombies & Xizt - Thanks guys. I'm struggling through it, I wanna be good so bad! I know there's a long way to go still but it'll only get shorter if I put the effort in.

    Kingkostas Thank you man. I appreciate the feedback and encouragement. I also posted the last picture on facebook conceptart page with a "help why do my colours suck!" message. A nice dude sent me a youtube link http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g2fZdGZKP1k I felt a bit silly for not knowing any of this but it explained a lot!

    I am starting to look at the Munsell colour student set book / worksheets and researching the relationships between colours and values. It is difficult to understand and I am struggling to grasp it but, a couple of exercises later and this is what I have got. It explains a lot and even though working in grayscale allows you to focus on value I now know I need to relate the relative values to the local colours as their ranges are limited. *patsback*

    Hello. Here are a few anatomy "studies" if you can call them that. Much more needed but I have plenty of resources now so just will keep at it. Oh, and a quick 40 minute pose from a photograph.

    Are we back now? I hope so. I went to the Fitzwilliam Art Gallery in Cambridge at the weekend. It was good to see some of the Pre-Raphaelites work, I've just finished watching the BBC4 documentary series on them. I also melted away into two Renoir paintings whilst there.

    Here is my chow 324 concept sketch, done on the train and colour added in photoshop. I'm not going to get any more time to work on this. Also my final for the solar sail pleasure craft industrial design entry. I really want to design more crafts / vehicles and a mech!

    Here is a project I have been working on for the last couple of weeks for a friends wedding. He wanted his six favourite pubs to be used as a theme for the tables. Each image will be used for a table, with a stand and some text about the place. Then an A2 table plan with all the images and uk map with locations and guests names. I am uploading using google chrome and the preview of the images makes the colours look overly saturated.

    A few ideas on the character of the week Artemis whilst the site was down. Now want to try and make the finals with the sci fi concept. Struggled with converting greyscale to colour and much preferred starting with blocks of colour instead.

    Here are a couple of things from imagination and also a few of my morning / lunchtime people sketches. Lol, AND just when I thought my industrial design ideas were getting somewhere I see http://danielsimon.com/ and he totally puts me in my place... in an old torn shoe box, in a dusty drawer, besides the broken toilet of a servents quarters of the towering castle that is conceptart! I will pick my jaw up one day but for now *update?* -.-

    Push your viewing points in your paintings.
    Especially in the last two environments, you could have easily chosen a more intense, dramatic point of view.
    Play around with strong perspective.

    Keep it up!

    Ok, site (touch wood) seems pretty stable again. Nothing new but wanted to post some finals from the last couple of weeks. These are really good tools for experimenting with process and techniques. Values, composition and detailing I really need to focus on.

    Patience - Digital painting tutorials

    Patience.... Damn, it's really frustrating when I think I am making progress and then I look up and see how far I still have to go. Lots more studies, reading and exercises. After last weeks environment of the week contest, I came across the work of Benedikt. He has two digital painting tutorials. I know bits, basic theory about atmospheric perspective and value contrast, colour definition etc, but these videos are really good at giving a comprehensive explaination of the rules and process to follow. He makes it look so easy! Last night I had a go and failed miserably, tonight I just failed... I need to prepare, dedicate a serious chunk of time and focus on this one. This might take some time but I feel this is important and could underpin everything I do digitally. But now more than ever I realise just how much work I need to put in to get anywhere.

    Here are my laughable attempts (I will plan, research and develop a proper concept and redo these asap)

    Here are the links to the youtube videos, I recommend them. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_uCXi-NoFoU http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e9CKpbNSLok

    Thank you Kingkostas. I still have lots of sketches to do for these environments as I am trying to underpin what I do. I have not done much this week, feeling off, but will do little bits here and there. Tonight I did a quick sketch, no ref, apart from a camel! I want to understand (basic grasp of) the relationship between saturation, value and distance.

    My latest character entry. I forgot to reduce the saturation at the end. Not happy with the face or anatomy of chest / left arm but think some improvements.

    A little update. I'm not sure how much progress i will make over the next couple of months, work is very intense and I am trying to find a new place to live. I hope to get myself sorted for 2014, get a good pc with photoshop, a studio space and really start pushing myself. For now it'll just be bits and bobs I guess.

    You have improved so much!
    Keep pushing the depth on your enviros. Some of them really nail the sense of scale and some can look a little bit flat. I love the brush strokes though. Great work, keep it up!!

    Azsha - Thank you! I will keep it up. Not posting as much as I am struggling for progress at the moment. Anyway, with your comments and will try and get more depth. Value, shape and contrast.

    For now, here are a couple more finished bits. I will scan and post my pen sketches soon.

    I've just spent the evening scanning in loads of sketches... I will update with lots of stuff over the next few days. Tonight I wanted to share this Arrietty wip, she is the character by Studio Ghibli. When I saw the Nausicaa painting by Gerezon a while ago > http://www.conceptart.org/forums/sho...=166043&page=9 I wanted to try and paint my own character but didn't know who. I watched Arrietty the other day and knew straight away! This was an hour or so on the train but i like the composition like this.

    Thanks Lennon... you have my surname!!!

    Hello everyone. Firstly, thanks for the continued support, advice and encouragement here. I am certain that without this place I would not give so much energy to pushing my art. I do it for a couple of reasons, I want people to see I am trying really hard and that I am not wasting their time. Also I tell people the only way to improve is to keep pushing and damn it I surely have to follow my own advice. Finally, every day I see other peoples work, improvements and breakthroughs and that gives me hope that one day I will do the same.

    I haven’t sat down and really studied or written anything substantial for awhile, with my pc crashing, reformatting (all backed up multiple times) , the site being difficult and my hopefully moving home next month I think this will be my best chance to evaluate where I am at the moment.

    Okay. I really enjoy doing the weekly challenges, I love the interesting briefs, they really get me thinking about different things. They are great for learning digital, through process, observing others and discovering resources. I know I hardly ever get any votes, but it feels like an honest achievement when I do. I don’t like fake / pity type complements, being ignored and left out are far better ways to motivate me, if that makes sense. There is a glimmer of hope though as my Guardian of the stairway to heaven, and Man versus nature challenges actually went down quite well. I need to push both quality and concept with everything I do.

    Studies. I’ve not sat down, read a book or gone to life drawing for a few months. This has slowed my progress but is my own fault as I have become lazy, relying on youtube videos and reading the odd imagineFX tutorial. I sincerely hope to correct this soon and I am really bothered by the lack of my fundamental knowledge and ability.

    My work. What you see around the site is reflective of where I am at. Value, colour and form for characters. Perspective, light and shape for environments, these are the areas I have been trying to develop this year. I will continue to do so, but now need to introduce, as Dierat told me, “ what the figure is meant to be doing/feeling in the piece”, that underlying theme that adds an emotion element, character and purpose to art, and something I never think about. Also I need to build up my fundamental knowledge on 3d forms, perspective and values.
    Here is a selection of my best bits from my sketchbooks from over the summer. Mostly imaginary, character ideas that never went anywhere, a couple of vehicles and some observational sketches from my daily exercises and photo studies (the girl in the bikini was from a photo, not on my way to work!).

    Finally, my goals. I will continue to participate in the weeklies, they really get me thinking, try new subjects and help to build up my reference library. I have found the perfect painting to use for my first ever master study and will start working on that very soon. I have a photo study of a friend that I started a few months back and want to finish. Finally my Arrietty digital piece, I want to finish this year too. I need get back into 30 second pose drawings and doing studies on figures, faces, hands and feet.

    Goodnight all, thanks for reading and for pushing me forward.

    Not pleased with tonights gestures. I flipped it and they looked totally skewed. I will pay more attention tomorrow, well try to. Also posting my ONI wip. I recently reformatted my hard drive, first did multiple backups, apart from my custom brushes! Nothing special but I knew what did what, now trying to make more, hence the background randomness. I also watched a very interesting youtube video by Scott Robertson on brushes and process. I will definitely be doing some studies in the future.

    Yo mate!!! Lovely sketches, i was studying a lot of sketching etc lately and i understand their importance. I dont mean the cleaner ones, i mean the ones from the previous post, which contain imagination characters etc.They contain the marks that can be translated to light and shadow, more fundamental training will make you do them better as you continue. Keep up the great work, and keep with this spirit, you are taking control of your happiness. Lets keep up!!!
