    Kidult: I will.

    Alkaloid: I'm honored that you feel that way. Thankyou.

    COW wip. Would love to hear some C&C on this one. I'm planning to add some more defined trees and maybe some waterfalls.

    I'm really diggin' it so far. I don't really have any worthwhile critique as I am noobsauce... soooo.... keep rockin'! It looks like you're on a good path. Oh, really liking the giant fire iguana of death, the beastie covered in blood walking toward the bunny and the painting of snape... very cool.

    Gouache sketches look good as always! I especially like the contrast on the gull. The little pen sketch about the bird head looks awesome too, gotta wonder how you get creatures to look so alive with just ink. On the COW sketch, the colors are nice but I think the composition looks a bit static.

    Hope to see more soon.

    Nice comeback.

    Those are some solid looking studies. The animal stuff is excellent.

    I think the meat looks bit odd in the last painting. At first glance I thought the dinosaur on the right has its side ripped open. You got to lighten the meat up and try to make the form read better.

    Wilkerson: Thanks!

    Ismo: Thanks dude. Now that you mention it I can see what you mean but don't quite know how to fix it. :/

    More playing around with toned paper. Love it but absolutely hate the heavy transverse line texturing of the paper.

    Got an idea and started planning a painting. Some dragon skulls and one throne room sketchup model.

    Still not all that happy with the skulls. Gotta keep on sketching.

    Environment studies from photorefs.

    I wan't to paint loosely but when I do I feel like im' going way too loose and then I go too tight. I can't seem to find the balance between those two extremes. And it's god damn infuriating because I see so many artists here in CA to who get it and I just don't.

    edit: added another study...tiger fishie.

    Good studies! Try and draw what you see .. and not what you think you see.
    Hope that makes sense but it actually seems to work.

    Oh and dinosaurs are awesome! Are you going for paeleontologist or geologist?
    Personally when I was little, I always wanted to be a paeleontologist, digging up dinosaurs, finding new ones, figuring out how they lived and if they really died from an asteroid impact. Studied biology instead, which was also very interesting btw.
    Anyway, I'm rambling. Keep up the good work, you'll be great!

    The studies on toned paper on 218 are awesome! So much depth and life with so simple medium.

    About that tight vs. loose thing, I'm not so good at that either but having gotten some good critique about it lately I've been thinking about it. To me it seems like you paint well both tight and loose but usually have the same level of detail everywhere. Start with big blobs of masses and carry on to details as you probably do but try to be focused on the most interesting spot of the picture and leave everything else more loose. this picture has a clear focus, not just because of the dino being in spotlight but the brushwork is tighter around that area. Try to take this kind of control of the eye to your photo studies too. Photos have lots of confusing detail everywhere but that makes them all the better for learning to think about what to leave out. The studies on 224 for example have details scattered all over the image. The water ripples on the left part has the most stuff happening but do you really want the eye to be drawn there? After that my eye goes down the reflection and stops in the ripples on the lower edge. The jagged edge of the distant hill also seems distracting. The study could be more interesting with less work if there was a clearly defined focal point, be it the ripples on the water or the light side of the rocks or whatever. On the third study, I really like everything else but the whole edge of the mountain being so jagged and detailed, it leads my eye out of the right edge. I guess it's up to what you want to get out of these studies, maximal learning of textures or how to lead the eye but seeing how well you handle textures already, the latter could be more use to your personal work.

    EDIT: This comment could be useful to you too.

    I love the look on the fish head and last Sargent study!

    Smuli: Thanks dude! And yeah what you said makes alot of sence. I really have not thought of that before, and I think I'm gonna give it a try right after I post this message.

    Normally when I make studies I wan't to get everything I can out of it so I just draw what Isee instead of modifying it or trying to give it a focal point.

    Velázquez study. I might work on this more later on, but right now my 2 year old niece is visiting and serves as constant distraction.

    Edward Seago study.
    I recently came across some of hes paintings and fell in love instantly. Too bad that there doesen't seem to be all that many high res images of hes works in the internetz. I would especially wan't a look at some of hes arctic studies because those things look badass!

    Velocity Kendall: Thanks! Those toneb paper studies arer sooo fun to do. And people really seemed to like them so I guess I just ahve to make more of those things in the future.

    EOW:Nazgûl Nest sketch. Or it was supposed to be untill I read the briefing more carefully and realised that the pic should be showing Nazgul being born. And this sketch doesn't quite cut it although I quite liked it.

    My thinking behind this one was that the to-be-nazguls (Warriors and kings of old) wandered untill they wanted to end their tortured existence. Desperate to believe Saurons lies, to end it all and finally get peace, they seeked the baptist in the marshes and recieved the kiss off green fire that burned their flesh till nothing remained but their withered old bones and nothing cloaked them but unnatural black smoke.

    I guess I could try to modify the pic to better fit the briefing but...I really like it as it is. :/

    Edit: still playing around with values.

    You've got a wonderful sketchbook, Vile.
    The Gouache drawings came out great!
    Do you have any advice on landscape painting?

    Lumens: Thankyou so much! I'm not sure if I'm qualified to give any advice as most of the time I have hardly any idea what I'm doing.
    If you ahve some specific questions I would glad to answer if I can.
    on the meantime take a look at Stapleton Kearns blog at : http://stapletonkearns.blogspot.com/

    There's plenty of very interesting stuff about various aspects of landscape painting so check it out

    Trying to figure out some colors. Would love to get some feedback so hop on constructive criticism boat and help me out.

    Edit: aand another Seago

    Vile_S, the painting you described of the woman in green walking on leafs is done by Birge Harrison. there should be large quality scans of it all over the internet, or perhaps the art renewal site.

    Love the last batch of environments! and i will definatly take a look at that blog.
