It has been three months now since my previous update, and a lot of tings have changed. I'm now studying digital arts and entertainment and i've bought a wacom tablet (finally :p)
The first two paintings are done for the daily sketch group and the teen challenge. The third one is a speedpaint with reference as a study in values.
The latest one is done for a school assignment. We have to design a submarine cleaning robot thingy (sry for the huge pic)
I'll try from now on to keep this sketchbook updated every few days/weeks
Very cool update; I'm curious to see where you go from here with your digital work. For a crit, you might want to ease up on the black a bit. In the mountainous landscape image, the atmospheric perspective could handle being more gradual. The dark shadows in the middle ground (which appear to be very far away) appear to be just as dark as the dark shadows in the foreground. In general, it's best to use pure white and pure black sparingly, for the areas where no light could reach. The dark areas on those mountain peaks should be receiving quite a bit of reflected light and atmospheric light (in addition to being somewhat lighter due to their distance from the viewer). Personally, I would suggest that you try doing regular painting studies from observation to help you master the medium and your use of values. Anyway, great work, keep posting, and happy new year!
Knut, Dark_Eyes, WRappiii : Thanks! I'll do my best to keep this SB up-to-date (: Dierat : Thanks for taking the time to give some advice, I really appreciate it!
For the mountain painting, i didn't really pay much attention to the lightning and the use of pure black and white ( I wasn't aware ). I'll keep it in mind for future paintings and I will do some regular studies ad you suggested.
For my exams of 3D I had to make a low poly cityscene based on Taiwan.
I'll upload a 360° render (video) soon

It has been a month since i my last update, but i've been practicing digital painting a bit.
The first pic was an assignment for school, it's based on the shoppingcenter 'The K' in Courtrai (Belgium).
Second one was an entry for the DSG, and the last pic are speedpaints I made..
