    I also love the lightning on the first pic on 525.
    And uuh now even more when you said its from imagination.
    Just breathtakingly beautiful. Like this latest wip too hehe. Oh and been meaning to ask you, where do you find the ref photos for your portrait-studies? Always so neat lightning on them.

    That first sketch in 525 rocks. Great use of reflected light.

    The last character looks pretty interesting too, although the lighting is slightly confusing. Maybe you could separate light and shadow and define the main light source bit more. Judging from his stare, it's not tobacco in that pipe.

    Satu: Thanks! I just gather my images all over the place. When looking for references I usually use some imageboards / tumblr / flickr. I've set a extension in my browser so I can save images with a hotkey to a certain folder, makes gathering them alot easier.

    MeteorCat: Thanks!

    ismo: Thanks! Good to see you back man. Yeah you're right about the light. I didn't plan anything beforehand (like usual, sigh.) so it looks like shit. I already stopped working on it. I kinda liked the idea thoguh so I'm trying to do something similar.

    LastGen: Thanks man!

    Just some quick stuff. I've been drawing and painting live model this week so theres not much to show at the moment. Also among my first contacts with oil painting - that shits hard but alot of fun.

    oh man I should really start making stuff thats more finished - they just always start looking like shit mid-way and I call it off. Oh well.

    This week will be plein airs with oils all week long, yeah!

    I'll try to fix this later. The values are off and theres no real sense of scale and shit.

    Yeah, I'd love to see some more rendering. I'm pretty sure that it would look great if there a some warm light beams on the stones, a nicely rendered sky and some crispy edges.
    The composition has a lot of symmetry - is that on purpose? Otherwise some overlapping shapes(the stones for example) would help out.

    I love your environments...though, I'm still waiting for the oil paintings, hehe!

    Done with this weeks oil stuff. Back to grinding that art-exp.

    Some scribble. ugh. Wanted to do something with the b/w -thingie but I just felt like the colours didn't work. I don't know why but I just feel like I can't work from bw to colour. I'm probably doing something wrong.
