    You have an interesting way of drawing, reminds me a lot of traditional painting.
    Great sketchbook so far, thank you for sharing.

    BlackDelphin: Thanks!
    Got your PM. I'll get back to you on that.

    Environmnet sketch. Neat says I, but I have no idea what to put in it.

    Edit: Added another version that came to my mind just after posting the first version.

    Kingkostas: The palette and the mood it creates is cool I think, but the basic compostion is lacking.
    GEB: Thanks.

    So I decided to do some analysis of the composition.
    First pic is just abstraction of the original with comments, in the latter two I have applied the changes I pointed out.

    Better? worse? Would love to hear some thought and comments if you have some.

    You did a good job turning what I thought was a good composition into something even better. For me, it needs something on the background for the rider to look at though. The horizontal silhouettes look a bit boring with no point of interest there. On the earlier version, you had a very faint vertical spike under the sun, maybe that could be fleshed out into something. I really like the gesture of the horse and rider, they're a perfect match with the environment! The animal sketches and Whitlatch studies look really good too!

    Smuli: Thanks for the suggestion dude! I tried adding a fellow knight but it sort of felt lame s I put some suggestion of ruins under the sun.

    So here's what I got now:

    it went really good. Maybe i would darken a bit the horizontal shape in the background to make it a little more visible, but maybe its my monitors callibration that brings up the need for that.
    Great work man, keep sharing

    Kingkostas: thanks.

    I ended chopping up the knight pic even more. HAving that much empty scenery just didn't feel right.

    Also random sketch of a beached....thing.

    Loving your work. A few thoughts on the knight piece:

    I personally am not as much of a fan of the newer, cropped version of the painting. I do like the second last one, on post 702. The composition is better. The only suggestion I have is to get rid of the yellow close to the horses face, since its competing with the sun (its actually stronger than the sun, imo).

    I actually kind of like the cropped version more, though if we're nitpicking, I'd push it a smidge more to the right.

    Also thank you. That beached... thing is now gonna haunt my nightmares. Though I suppose it could just be really enthusiastically saying hi to those people. And/or wiggling over to eat them.

    Saraiva & Vylla: Thanks! Hmmm...Divided oppinions. I do like the current composition, but my main problem right now is that the edges on the knight and horse are so sharp that they almost look like cutouts.

    Sigh...this knight painting didn't turn out as cool as I thought/hoped it would be.
    I feel bummed out.

    I don't know how realistic the lighting would be, but maybe backlighting that farthest shoulder (and maybe the back legs and strand or two of the tail of the horse) with a yellow rim light might integrate it a bit more? Or maybe pull in a bit more of the peachy yellow from the horse's breath?

    It's a subtle drawing, but I do want to say that I love it. Maybe just set it aside for a week or so and come back if it's bothering you?

    Vylla: Agreed on both. it's best to leave it alone for now and come back to it later.

    Quick thumb and two Edgar Payne studies.

    Oh man love your paintings. I would like to know how you obtained such brushes in these horse drawings above. Is there a video that taught you how to make them or... Thanks mate.

    TristanFletcher: Thanks. Rake brushes are easy to make. All they really are is just either row of dots or row of short lines. To get sort of smoother rake you can add some lines or textures between the dots/lines. Don't need to be anything fancy. Random scribble will do. Playing around with various brush set options (Shape dynamics, texture etc.) wil bring in some neat effects.

    Aaaaaaah, friggin great work. Love the analysis of the knight comp. I prefer the horizontal composition over the vertical though. I like the storytelling with the him observing the castle ruin to the right.
    Anyway, great work in here!

    Great SB. #702 is looking good, I think you could even go slightly darker down the bottom.

    Thumbs/sketches. Because that's about all I can manage to do at the moment as my battle against sinusitus continues with new set of meds.

    I like both last versions of the rider piece, I guess it's just about do you want to focus on the rider or environment, but the last one already looks pretty close to a finished painting. I agree with Vylla about the yellow spot on the left though, and the helmet highlight is off.

    I really like the last sketch of the giant, epic pose again!

    Your landscapes are looking really good! I also loved the anatomy studies of animals higher up. On the knight picture I get this weird sense that he's half inside the horse, I can't imagine his ass fits in there anywhere above the back of the horse. Sorry I don't know the horse anatomy terms in English so I'll just say it in Finnish. Vaikuttaa kun hevonen olis epätasasella maalla ja selkä laskeutuis vähäsen, jollon ritarin sijoitus olis järkevä, mutta satulan jälkeen säkä tulee kuitenkin niin korkeelta, että tuntuu kun selässä olis jotain vialla. Ylipäätään hevonen vaikuttaa sään kohalta jotenkin paksulta. Luulen, että jos säkää vaan madaltais vaikuttaus ratsastaja olevan ihan oikealla kohdalla.

    the way you made this water is interesting, it looks simple to make but i have drawn water and it i usually have to concentrate quite a bit. also, overall, i like the way you render things with such simplicity, like the way you portrayed many peolpe with a collection of circles, nice work!
