So much detail...
I also took a look at your DeviantArt profile. A big difference between the work from 2005 till now.
I really like your eow entry, really nice mood and thanks for sharing the process ^^

Nice stuff, yo.
One thing that kind of bugs me about the dead tree/root EOW piece, is that the rock highlight creates this long vertical line dead center of the piece, and it's echoed down below by the vertical highlight in the water roughly around the center. It splits the whole piece in half. Is that intentional?
Yeah, your intent makes sense. I feel the bigger issue with the line is not that it exists, but that it's almost perfectly in the center, and is followed by a similar split in the waterfall and the dark grass blades in front of the waterfall also continuing the line from above. Had it been offset to the left to maybe overlap with the trunk a bit, it would still lead the eye. Or maybe if it wasn't so straight, had some interruption in it, and the waterfall didn't have a split in it, and the grass blades in front of the waterfall weren't there. I'm usually not a stickler for compositional rules, I break them all the time myself, but this one just really popped out to me. At first glance I thought it was two separate paintings, and I thought "Oh, these are cool" and then I was like "Wait a minute..." Anyway, righteous piece otherwise.
What a nice sketchbook here ! I love the atmosphere you give to your environments =)
Wow, cool art!
Beautiful work man!
Especially like the environment paintings
oh hi! I didn't know you had thread here too. really nice work all over as seen deviant art
I love how all of your work have organic and airy feel. Post #103 environment is really interesting because it contains not only the windy elements but also water movement that has different flow than your usual stuff.
Looking forward to see more of these!
Holy Mackerel that latest EOW is cool! Oh man . . . I think your artwork shows exactly everything I like to see, and your captions always back the image up perfectly . . . plus you write them in italics; I like italics.
At first I wished for some of the simplicity of the WIP version in the final, but after looking at it for a while I think the background fills the need for a quiet area. And the lesser mass of sharp texture on the structure nicely balances the larger amount of smoother, small, triangular shapes on the left.
In short: It's Awesome.
Thanks for posting.
Rob: Hey man, thanks for stopping by. Your work keeps improving!
Collin Smiley: Will try! Thanks!
soulburn3d: implied detail... maybe the best of the tricks an artist must learn to pull off. Hope it worked on this one. Thanks for commenting!
Greenhouse: thank you :D
htkpeh: happy you liked my stuff!
Quinn Simoes: Thanks! I have not worked on environments that much till now but I find it very relaxing...
raqmo: Thank you for your detailed comment! I will try to do some more of these then! ;D
Mr. Corlan: I really appreciate the detailed feedback. Achieving/maintaining balance is essential and extremely hard for me. I was having the same thoughts too, about how the piece might end up looking too busy-but eventually I guess it worked out to some point. Rhythm and detail variation are important compositional tools and I am trying to learn not to mess up... tricky!
