    Gibier - Hey man, it's a skin tone ! On a testicle, haha. Thanks!

    mmystic - Thanks for the heads up regarding the course and the cool guide. Definitely you're right, my paintings are sometimes flat, damn, it's one of those things that are hard to see. I'll invest good time into Plein Air studies.

    GrayPersona - np man, they were supposed to send an email but nothing arrived so I went and checked if they had my card and they did. Anyway, thanks, I'll definitely continue with those studies.

    One older painting from last week I forgot to include in and two new ones. Separating elements in the paintings to their own layers does help me create better, love it. I guess my one layer technique is going for a vacation for a bit now.

    Pencil work is awesome... I really like the hand and arm studies. The form feels really solid

    Keep up the good work!

    Hornybee - Thanks, those must have been quite a while ago. Don't remember when I picked a pencil last time

    A scanty update, with just a bit of meat on it.

    I'm really enjoying the movement in these recent environment sketches! Really nice brush strokes. I keep going back to those green glows of the creepy house and lanterns. Looking forward to more!

    nice sketchbook, I love your characters, they have a unique style, really liked the John snow in page 21, cartoony but you got the likeness really well, my only critique would be to work on your color, all of your pieces seems disaturated, perhaps its a style thing or just your preference but some rich saturated colors could add tons to the feel of a piece, the viewer reacts to color before shape so color is very significant.

    Cheers

    wroblewski-art - Thanks man! It really is a great feeling to improve, and thanks to a renewed and fresh motivation I'm going through tutorials and doing more studies than ever.

    Danny_K - I agree with you and thank you for pointing that out. I found out a great color video and watched it, helped me greatly to understand the role of saturation and how it works when objects are lit. I don't know how I didn't know that before...

    n1frit - Thanks man, tutorials and studies!

    Sushy - Thank you, I'm trying to challenge myself with tutorials, books and concentrated studies.

    George Taylor - Thanks!

    A few updates from the past few days, they were fun and I'm discovering a lot of basic stuff that I didn't know. That's actually weird, how come I didn't know the basic idea behind color and still managed to paint... weird.
    For the next update I'll make a commitment to scan my newly finished sketchbook and post some of it here, it's been a while since anything traditional was shown in my sketchbook.

    Isometric work for landscape painting classes, approaching the whole subject with a set designer's mindset. Really cool stuff, I enjoy it so much. Not as easy as it looks when it comes to cracking the idea of something, but nonetheless super satisfactory. This is only an iteration, more updates on this in the future!
    The isometric and sideview designs are from the arena scene in the book Neuromancer, one of my favorite books ever.

    Also a virtual plein air study, of course!

    It is a great pleasure to post a painting of one of your motivations and have him respond positively to it, it feels good to give gifts and that simple excitement that is heard back from the person who receives the gift can make a great contribution to your day and life as a whole. For what is life but connecting with other people that you love, people that are interesting and are motivating you to go beyond your current self fencing.
    I created a painting of Elliott Hulse and recorded the process too.

    I'm also proud to announce that I started working on my own interactive illustrated story that I'll keep publishing more items about very frequently, it's called Wolfgang's Quest and it'll be a story where you, the reader, will be able to make choices for the character that will affect the story. I'm very excited about this and I'm adding a little teaser poster below.

    Cheers and have a great rest of the week! It's Yom Kippur this weekend in Israel and for all the Jews around the globe, that means fasting and going to the synagogue. Nothing that I intend to do. I fasted last year for the first time for the sake of the experience itself and found it tiring and boring but the mushroom soup I ate afterwards was indeed the best tasting thing I ever ate in my life.

    Never heard of Elliott Hulse, is he some fitness guy (googled him really quickly). The portrait is really good, a bit sketchy but in a good way
    An interactive story? How will that work? Will it be like a game where you can pick certain parts or do you ask your audience "What story line shall I draw next?" XD

    Suz - Nah, I won't ask the audience. The audience will get to pick in certain scenes what to do, and with the choices will come different plot lines

    A painting from today that I really enjoyed.

    Hey Vlad!!

    What's happening? Do you want some apple juice?

    Long time no talk!

    It's great that you're still working along... and it's great to see how much you've improved. Your shapes just look a lot better and your designs are more clear and powerful.

    A word about this last painting (which looks great btw... great sky)... I think that for the trees in the distance... maybe you could use less contrast in the trunks and where the light peeks through for more of an atmospheric perspective effect-- (objects in the distance become less contrasty and are less saturated).

    Here's kind of an example (not the greatest)--but it shows how the tree shapes almost become as light as the light behind them.

    Otherwise, I think it's a brilliant painting.

    Keep going. Great job all around.

    p sage - Chad, I missed you man! Good to hear from you, how are you doing?
    I accept the critique, good point.

    Fynch - Yeah man, I recognized your sketchbook on concept art and I know who you are
    It feels like the best growth is happening right now and that it's ever increasing, so the journey must go on at a faster pace.

    An update from two recently finished sketchbooks, it's been a while since I last uploaded anything traditional.

    and abstractions,you can check out loomis and michael hampton books as well other watts guys like ron lemen on that topic

    GrayPersona - Thanks man, I'll definitely dig into drawing and painting heads later on. I'm now doing a huge assignment for college and there is the final assignment looming in the background, plus I'm devoting my whole time to studying color right now.

    A few updates on the main character in my interactive and illustrated story, Wolfgang. The portrait definitely needs less hardness, I'm working on this. I want a simple style for the whole illustrated interactive story I'm building right now, the portrait is only as a reference for me and to create a cool asset for the story.
    Chapter 1 in the story is almost done, I had 6 different paths in the story and this was too much for me to handle so I had to change a few of the paths and shorten the life of a few remaining ones.
    I'm also adding a prop design that I did for college, the assignment is not over just yet but I'm very proud of this design. Need 9 more props, update the isometric view on the scene and provide two scene shots from different angles.

    Suz & Dima - Thanks guys!

    I finished the environment design homework piece for college and now I'm moving to do the Final Project for my 14 months long course on Concept Design. I'm excited and I have a project idea that I know I'll enjoy very much. I'm going to do character, environments, props and a couple of spaceships designs based on my all time favorite book series, The Hyperion Cantos. Specifically doing designs for the 3rd book in the series called Endymion with really great characters such as Raul Endymion, Aenea, A.Bettik the android and others. I'm in love with those books, they (together with Harry Potter books) got me back to consistent reading habits. I'm mighty thankful for that.
    I'll update more on the final project as I go along with it.

    A few updates from the last week or two.

    Stuff from the Environment design project for college -

    Nice work, pal. Great use of positive/negative space in the warrior character... great silhouette.
