    Ben: Thanks! I do have a good feeling about this one.

    Josh: Thanks man!!

    Some rather minor tweaks. Really trying to take my time with this one and think it all through.

    Want to help? Look at the updated sketch and let me know what path your eyes follow. What you look at first, what second and what third and so on.

    If you wan't to see what I'm trying to make you look at and in which order you can see the gameplan here:

    https://dl.dropbox.com/u/27968/pyke_plan.png

    And ofcourse as always! critiques are more than welcome!

    In the meantime I'm off to search some reffs and to do some in preparation studies.

    Love the newest one, especially the hue variation you've managed to pack in even though it's quite a subdued palette. :') If it helps, my eyes travel down the blocks as planned, but they kinda level out at the horizon and just travel left to right... I don't actually make it to the bottom left corner. (I did this before looking at the plan, just to make sure I wasn't influenced by it.) Idk if that helps at all..

    That environment looks fantastically moody and realistic. The composition looks balanced, really like the detail vs loose balance and colors look vibrant and very realistic with all the subtleties. Really, really great work!

    I also like the brushing style on the armor study and how much energy it adds. Steel color became a lot bluer but it works well that way too.

    Can't see a brush stroke to crit, keep them coming!

    Nice sketchbook man and great studies. I read your post you made of the cow drawing and how something clicked with you about flattening curved forms into flat planes, and I was laughing because that exact same thing seemed to click with me around the same time. I've been having a lot of trouble with construction for organic forms because I just wouldn't know where to start as the form would be so complex, but now it kinda all makes sense lol. Anyways great work and keep it up .

    Back from the week long trip to the countryside.
    I was planning on doing more outdoor painting, but alas the weather was against me.

    Gpozzo: Thanks!

    Smuli: Thanks. On the armor study I was intentionally pushing the colors to extremes to get more interesting look.
    It's something I have been trying to incorporate to my paintings. I actually learned it from seago paintings. If you look some of hes paintings you may notice that there's some splahes of rather vibrant colors on where you don't realistically expect them (Vibrant splashes of blue in grass for example)

    will123will: Thanks. And yeah some things just need time and practice to sink in.

    Jesibelle: Thanks. Though honestly I have no idea what I'm doing half of the time. Sometimes these watercolors come out quite nicely sometimes not so much... :/

    Moar...

    Plein air study I did while visiting mordor. Fun times. Bit hot and dusty, and the air was full of poisoneous fumes, but otherwise gorgeous place.

    That last environment blows me away - I dream about being able to paint scenes like that. Love it.

    Good looking gouache sketches, especially the dead tree! Seems like you've used pure black in some of them, you could try mixing red and green together for a vibrant, more interesting black and gray. I'm always impressed by your versatility with mediums, keep them coming!

    liquorbleu: Thankyou!

    Psychobuddy: Will do.

    Smuli: Yeah I know one shouldn't be using black, but it's so tempting.

    Have bunch to learn about color mixing.

    Some sketches/thumbs. Really I'm just trying to create interesting color schemes from imagination.

    Hey great sketchbook here. You've improved quite a bit since the first posts. You have a strong sense of how to light your work and conveying it realistically. Also nice use of texture on pretty much everything. Keep it up!

    Your watercolors are superb of late, young master Ville_S!

    Harmageddon: Hehe thanks!

    Acrylik Sargent. I love how I managed to screw up the face so that it's half a derp and half a scowl

    There's promise there for better things though...all I need to do is practice
