    I like how the camera's positioned on the chess piece one, feels like it's zoomed in close to the chess board pieces, though I'm not sure about the demonic character being cropped off the shot so much, if it's possible to try a version with him more centered to the screen, it might push your composition a bit more.

    BlightedArt sweet as bro! the demon is the the reds king in pain as the queen crushes the pawn of the red side, this thing took me a bunch of days it was hard to get that perspective worked out, i tried leaving the demon out as much as possible but you got a good point if he was closer on his knees it would be more punchier, added a rook in the background.

    no worries. I did a couple quick hack n slash edits just now (with a mouse and little sleep sorry), just to show that you don't need to invest a lot of time in "try and see" edits like this:

    Things I Do Weekly

    1. is your current image as is.
    2. is me quickly moving the demon a bit, bringing him into the pic a bit more.

    3. quick level bumping in greyscale (messing with values for now and forgetting hues), at the moment your pic is rathrer low contrast and washed out in areas, punching up the values / darks and lights makes it a bit more dramatic.

    4. quickly putting shapes around the main elements and bringing the foreground elements darker while lightening out the background, it brings more focus to the two characters and also pushes the chesboard floor back a little more, so that it's still noticable but not distracting / cluttering.

    Others with more experience please head off my comment and correct me before leading this guy down the wrong path, but these edits I feel are beneficial to your work.

    BlightedArt thanks man! many great points if i have time i'll actually rework that piece, i like that system of see and try and it wont be so destructive, i defeinetly have to work on my color contrast more, thanks for taking the time to do this!

    did this since the last post had a break so cant figure out how much time i spent on this? its a redo of a study i did awhile ago

    Attachment 1330111

    Hola..thanks for checking out mah sketchbook. I don't want to repeat what has already been said as you've been given a lot of sound advice.

    There's some improvement with your lines, which reminded of a friend's artwork long ago who had a very similar style...he still draws somewhat the same, but he's cleaned it up quite a bit.

    I would spend more time drawing shapes the best I could rather than just rushing through it. I think Matt Kohr has some drawings of shapes on his site and you can tell he didn't just rush through it...which is tempting to do because we all want to get to the point where we are drawing dragons and robots. But I really think most of your time should be spent drawing from life...such as still lifes, live models, etc.

    Keep it up!

    Anyways, love your passion

    Nice adjustment to the last one!
    I think there's two much black in this, try using a dark red or something similar.
    Your light source is cool and blue, so your shadow should be worm.
    Also, try working on the atmosphere composition. Give a fade effect to the scenery that is far away to create more depth as well.

    Keep going!

    The last one still needs some atmospheric composition. It looks very flat, because everything seems on the same plane. Also, when i look at the leafs, i see very little strokes everywhere. Instead, try using big brush strokes at first, and as you move towards the lighter parts, go in with smaller brushes. It may not look to good, but with practice it will. You just have to stick to it.
    I really like how the waterfall and the river turned out. Particularly this part under the bridge, it's just perfect!

    BlackDelphin: thank you for the support unfortunately i submitted it like that already but no worries, I'm totally swamped with work and studies this coming week but i shall revisit it at some stage and fix the things you've mentioned and yes the image seems a bit flat.

    So I did night shift last nite and a few drawings on the way to work and at work in that time, thought I'd jam one of them out a little, quickie style of course.

    Jephyr X: thank you for your kind words

    Not much time coz of work lately so another rushed IDW entry by yours truly, im still sketching constantly tho! yay

    the description:
    The Octous spy U-boat parasite deploys cameras in areas that
    is scans, upon detecting a enemy uboat is tries to attach it
    self to it by activating its electro magnetic arms in situations
    where failing that it would deploy the sinking parasite - rocket
    propelled, armed with concentrated symtex explosive its
    enough to create a small hole to sink any uboat.

    Nice work so far, you have some very imaginative work. One problem I'm seeing is your figures. Some more figure studies will dramatically help your art overall. Also using better reference for your paintings will help them a lot. Keep posting!
