So I experimented a bit more with the BG on this one
looks better now, I was holding to not break the color scheme of blue/pink but I think it was needed to add more tones so the characther indeed could break from the background and add depth
Let me know your thoughs!! also added a bit of neon glow effect and so

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...

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)
