    Your work is very inspirational. I am trying to paint in watercolor now, in my moleskine sketchbook. It already got wet and warped by my air conditioner, so might as well paint it in water color. Have you ever went to a painting course, or did you teach yourself?

    dude, very good stuff.. you're at a very high level. Your color use is very well and it seems very intuitively. I think your 'sacred' piece (pink blue girl) lacks a bit depth in the background, maybe your values of the background and the character could have a bit more contrast, in other words, make the background a bit brighter.

    but what do i know...

    Parsakoira - =))))

    Vay - Cool!, show me the results later on,
    I did attended to Art college for some years, but never finished it... and I was disappointed that it was most focused on teaching abstract concept and "how to express yourself" while that is totally valid there was almost zero teaching of actual painting technique, the only strong teaching I got was for nature drawing, like 100x50cm model drawing with charcoal
    so pretty much the rest I had to learn myself, still I dont know the proper technique for watercolor I just do as I can..

    JellevdVegt - Thanks! What you point out for the background, I was pretty satisfied with this final result, but I'll be giving a try since I have the background entirely in another layer its an easy thing to test because, yes I'm all in to get more depth in my pics

    F1x thank you for visiting my sketchbook.

    Now about your art, i love your overall graphic style of art.
    It certainly does distinguish from the rest of people out here, and thats a very good sign. Sorry if this has been asked already but do you work in PS or Painter?

    I am one to love line work so I feel like contrast in some of these pieces would kill some of it for me except the first piece. That pendulum axe and that woman would benefit so much from some background contrast... (but only because there is no awesome faded background full of squiggles and mystery ) ... the stuff drams are made of ... I love this SB.

    Hey there, I just grabbed some time on my dinner break at work to upload a couple stuff

    I'll reply backwards

    James Gerard - Yes thats sometimes something good and bad at the same time, I also love lines, and I love light, maybe I'm married with lines but I have this secret lover which is light, and sometimes I dont wanna favor said contrast cause indeed it sometimes kills lines and most of all kills colors, but on the other hand too much pastel colors and not enough contrast kills the overall image, anyway I'm gonna post a next round of "Sacred" steps that will exemplify a bit
    About the girl with the pendulum axe, indeed she needs a better background, I'm on the works with that, hopefully this weekend i'll get it done!

    Icecold Thanks!! thats the best compliment you could give to me =)
    About the question, I work entirely in photoshop... actually I'll confess I'm not too good with Painter

    Mitchoo Thanks a lot!!

    Before you say "what... this dosnt even... you change shit!!!"
    Yes I did small changes on every one , but I feel tied cause colors are already a bit on the extreme in terms of saturation and contrast
    1.Is the final image as I last posted it
    2.The bg is a bit brigther some tones slightly modified
    3.BG is a bit desaturated and everything more brighter there
    4.BG is same saturation but more contrasted and also the girl has more black specially on the lower part, this on a small dose aswell

    I think on terms of separating figure-BG or gaining depth the four are more or less the same, while this experiment shown me that taking saturation from the BG made the image a bit less strong, adding saturation makes me loose tones, and touching the figure-girl in anyway kinda harms the balance

    I guess this also depends on my monitor which is certainly not perfectly calibrated so dunno if you guys are seing the same as me, anyway I wanted this piece to be as perfect as possible but i'll stop here for some days then look at it again, right now I have my doubts between the 4 and the 1

    This is some pencil drawing I did not long ago and I forgot to post, this should be part of a series with the "Corruption" piece of my first post, but atm is on hold, this one I colored it... but it didnt work too well (for my taste at least)

I like the 3rd one, mainly because it has more soft edges than the others.. makes for a better mix It also has more relationships going on than the others which are a bit too extreme imho. Keep it up man!

    Wow, your stuff is fantastic! I especially love the way you draw bodies - the curves look so natural and appealing. Your shading's also lovely - the colours you pick are really nice and everything looks natural which I feel is such a hard thing to do so kudos to you for that! The only thing I've seen that looks off is in the first picture where she's standing on the skulls the skulls look a bit 2D for some reason. The shading's really good on them it just doesn't look like she's standing on them, I guess. But that could just be me - it's only a small thing.

    Anyway, you're awesome! I'm officially a fan! Great work, I can't wait to see more.

    Beautiful!! I love that your moleskines are so strong and solid, by that I mean that you don't have to do a lot of "fixing" in your digital painting.

    Hello, sorry for taking so long to bring up new stuff, its been a busy week-weekend

    Dile_ - Yes after looking now, with a couple days off it, I like the BG being less saturated with color, else the whole piece its kind of a color circus, but I dig the new values of brightness which helps separate

    n1frit - You cannot possible get tired of apocalipse girls! ever.. until the apocalipse itself

    theUNKNOWNsketcher - Thanks!!!

    Comet - Yep, you are right, I was thinking about that, realistically if you had to stand on top of a pile of skulls (not something that happens everybday for sure) then either the skulls would fall on your weight or your feet prob would get "sunken" on the skulls, so I'm gonna try work with that, already fixed a bit on the next step im gonna post, check below

    Jesus Food - Thanks sir !

    Ian_ruff - Thanks!, well I do think there is a lot of fixing, more than fixing actually i'm wishing to gain the same fresness/confidence with digital that I have with my moleskines/pencils

    Now with the images

    Next step on the fixing of the BG here, I worked a lot of stuff but still a long way to go, on this 3rd step, the perspective for the castle, I did it a bit more flat because overall the girl wont be matching that point of view, anyway I added a bit of fog below but everything needs more work, but for today thats all I can get

    This is on an early stage, I scanned the sketch then I thought I would do a bit of shadowing before starting with color this time, I have yet to decide what I'm gonna do on the arc, like behind the arc, either make it end in darkness or put more zombies...also, the axe.. is a bit weak, might change it for a sword or something that actually feels like a real weapon ..

    I'm really getting used to your cool images, and the back ground definitely improved a lot in that fighting chick picture.

    Keep posting and making that great work!

    Thumbs up on yer sb! Really digging your digi-paintings. I don't think the axe is a problem in the last pic...kinda like it that way. It'll be interesting to see what you come up with either way.

    Fallenangel - thanks a lot Alex, I'm hoping to get it finished soon aswell

    Jephyr X - Yes, actually its not bad, but I was thinking in a way to change it to make it look like something more sharp or agressive, to make the whole zombie-viking look more like a threat, anyway I gotta add more shading/color and then see what happens

    Now some more stuff, a bit more on the illustration side:

    This is how the "Liz" piece is right now, so you can see it bigger, I'm missing highlights all around and adjusting the BG so it dosnt get flat again with the figure like it happened with the "Sacred" piece, also I like how the skull on the down part look more sketchy now, insted of "overrendered", I want to go after some freshness regarding digital aswell
    and I think I fixed part of the floating-flat standing of the feet over the skulls effect, it looks more grounded now, but still needs more work there

    if i were you i would treat arc as piece of old stone bridge, under which this cute fellow lives

    waiting for results
