    Day 4: mostly analogue, traditional stuff. But I did this just now just to have something to actually upload.

    Eightball_: Thanks, bro. I have something planned for it, but I need to do some thumbnails and shit, and I need to do some tree studies. Have to do tree studies...
    Anyways, yeah, this week I've been on a roll. Always trying to upload something every day. It works wonders, shit. I'll keep on truckin', thanks.

    Day 6: Well, that was yesterday. I had to go do some family related stuff. So, to make up for that, I've uploaded a couple sketches I've done lately.

    Day 7: Not my day. Way too late in the nighttime to be painting, but I did it anyways. I'm not finished YET, but I'll post an update tomorrow, when I hopefully finish.
    I totally forgot about the overarching project I was supposed to do. I guess I was busy. But it doesn't matter; what I was trying to do was to get myself to update every day. I want this to be a habit that I don't want to break, and I want this to get me working more. I need to paint more.
    Sadly, the next couple of days I probably won't update as much as I should. An exam is coming up, and I'll have to devote a lot of time to it. I hope I have the capacity to do so, hahaha. I really do.
    After that though, I'll do the same thing again. I'll post every day if I can.

    Back... Again, with some new stuff.
    Did a Bouguereau study that took me about 9.5 hours.
    So, fucking, haaarddd. learned a whole lot though

    also did some environments. One of which I am actually pleased with. I'm sorta getting it now, actually, which is satisfying.

    Hello there Toffers,

    I really like your smooth brushwork.

    That last goblin ambush piece is really awesome. How did you organise your color scheme ( imagination, reference, preset color palettes ?)
    I'm currently having trouble doing that for my enviros.

    IsaacEs: Thanks, man. I'm doing several more different things to try to get out of my comfort zone, I just don't...show most of them, heh.
    I have one in this update though, the "industrial design environment" thingie.

    Kevin: Thanks a lot! I have no idea how people can like my stuff, least of all my colors. I think they're atrocious.
    If people like them, though, that means I'm doing something right!....Right?

    Tea of Doom: Hello there, right back 'ya, mr. Tea (oh god I'm so sorry).
    Thanks for all of the compliments; it means the world to me to know that people like this stuff.
    As for the colors, I'm not quite sure how I would classify my "choices". They're mostly random, but I think
    about them in this order: Value->temperature-> actual hue. I got the idea from:
    http://www.artpad.org/blog/2012/7/10/process.html
    You can also see some similarities in the way I try to render. Doesn't work too well, but ehh.
    I have a speedpainting video of the process somewhere. I'll find a link in just a sec.
    Edit: Right here :



    So I did something new, something old, some composition sketches and so on. Just stuff.

    I have a bunch of traditional stuff, and some shitty digital plein air paintings if you're interested?
    I won't bother uploading them if that's not your cup of tea, so to speak. I have to use a camera,
    get the lighting and distance right and oh god...

    Looking good man, you're improving fast. I love the textures in your work, something I struggle with. Favourite pieces so far are the second Game of Thrones study, the one in the thumbnail in the first post, and this one:

    Draconius:It's weird how people like my landscape paintings.
    I don't do them often enough. I should paint more, oh dear god...
    Thanks though!

    Jovian M: Thanks, I'm trying to have more balanced paintings lately,
    but I suck at it. I've gotten flak for going a little too dark (like, 95%
    value, dark), so I'm sort of afraid of going there too much, but I'm sort
    of achieving a greater balance lately. Thanks a lot for liking my stuff!
    I do it for people like you, and, well, for other people that just like my stuff... and kinda for those who hate it as well?

    Did a self-portrait from a mirror. Hard as shiet, man. I also did a
    quick sketch of a horseshoe crab man for one of mah homies back at the bay12 forums.

    Guardian G.I. : Well, that's a positive spin on it all. Keep fighting the good fight, and thank you

    Some of the stuff I've done the last couple weeks.
    I haven't done too much...but, yeah.



    Week 1 : Because Brushstrokes are important.
