Hey razz, hope you dont mind, but i did a quick paintover of your child thief piece as i wasn't sure how to crit it without visual aid. I moved the arms because, even tho your latest version felt much better then the previous, i still thought that that pose was kind of awkward, i also added some hair because the head felt a little flat on the top and lastly i moved some branches here and there. On the colours, i decreased the overall green tint a little, and added some saturation to make it stand out a little more.
The 3d models looks nice, can't wait to see it finished
PolarPear, thank you for the kind words!
Ja1307, thanks so much! This illustration is starting to look the way I want my work to look like. Some more work left to be done.
G@m, wow, thanks for taking the time to do an overpaint, helped a lot! I've already worked on it, but no update in this post, still needs some lovin' and perhaps I'll post what I think will be a finished one. I especially like what you did with the background. Will be keeping my pose though. I like that it's not the kind of pose you see all around.
Made a concept that I will be creating in 3D, must practice!
Like the action and perspective in this latest one you have a good eye for composition. What kind of painting style is that background in or is it a 3dcreation. not so clued up about digital stuff but it does not look like regular digi painting but it works. You are improving a lot in terms of your ideas. Keep pushing.
Ja1307, thanks, mate! It's 3D, with post production (mainly smoke) in Photoshop. Glad you like it ;]
lionheartGFX, haha, thank you ;]
I guess I'll call this one finished. I could work on it forever, but it's time to move on to something new.
Little photo study while test rendering the 3D illustration in previous post.

damn that elf piece was so awesome it reminds me of the mtg cards love the colours and details, you could have incorporated some dust in the direction of the characters jump to get more action but im sure you are happy the way it turned out so onwards to better things! merry xmas and happy new year razz
Lionheart, there's always room for improvement ;] Working on another piece already, fuck yeah! Thank you for the feedback, I'll keep it in mind. Happy new year!
Update! Some more work on the new illustration and then schoolwork. We have working on storyboards this past week, I'm showing just a tiny bit of those here, but there's not much to look at. Next week is design, loads of hard work, but I will hopefully have some cool stuff to show after.

Awesome stuff, those still lives are really great, the colors are so vibrant.
Looking forward for more, and subscribed!
Great sketchbook mate, seems like you can work in a load of different styles. The still lifes, cartoon self portrait and the ghost pirates are all awesome. The SP in the first post is stunning too.
woa, this last page is like BOOM. I was cheking your stuff and the last post have really made an impression on me. The last still life looks freaking amazing, I'm more of a fan of loose stuff and I like it best amongst the three. And the last movie studies are ROCKING seriously. Specially the V from Vendetta, man that one, you totally nailed it dude, keep it coming, I'm eager to see what's next!
really nice thread this,those last movie studies and still life are preety darn good I like how the golum one has focal lenght to it.
keep up the good work.
Suira, glad it helped! Everything gets hard when you only have an hour to paint, but it does help concentrate on the important stuff. I enjoy giving myself this deadline with these. Otherwise I would just spend hours on it and detail them out and there's no need for that ;]
GrayPersona, thank you!
One more, one hour. Kingdom of heaven.
Great work overall, and these movie screenshot studies are very good! That's something I need to be doing more of myself, so thanks for the inspiration
