    im liking those studies where you draw in the anatomy over the actual photos. thats a good excercise for seeing the muscles as they really are. good for poses too, and trying to see the anatomy accurately. i really should do some stuff like this soon. keep it up man!

    Truly lovely work. Soooo many studies. I especially like the medieval armor stuff with really bold lines. I really like the look.

    This is really great too:
    http://www.conceptart.org/forums/att...1&d=1322594432

    It looks like you are using very little flow and I think it's affecting the look of your paintings. Lot's of transparrent small brush marks makes some of your work look very messy. using such transparency affects your colors too so be careful with that stuff.
    less toggling with opacity and flow and more confidence with colors and values, that's the way to go.

    Can you help me a bit Lumens. In the second page 11th pic from the top there's a sketch of sort of victorian lady in greenish coat and a hat walking on dry leafs.
    If I remember correctly this is actually from painting though for the life of me I can't remember either the name of the artists or the painting. It's killing me because fell in love with it when I saw it in temporary art exhibition last year
    but apparently didn't write down the name of the paintin/artist.
    Can you remember who made this painting?

    All the best and keep on rocking!

    Hey Nickybeats, yeah i got the idea from way back when Dave just started the daggers.

    Vile S, thanks for the response! you are spot on about the messy look in my work, espeially my most resent work where i feel im getting lazier.

    i have a screenshot below of my flow setting , is this what you mean?
    my knowledge of photoshop is only so-so.

    as for the woman standing in leafs , that would be Birge Harrison ( someone please tell me im right )
    i also included that particular painting in this post, wich i obviously didn,t make.

    Bingo! That's it. Finally, I have been searching that painting for ages. Thankyou so much! Man that painting takes my breath away.

    Regarding the flow and opacity, yeah those are the settings. Now, it's not wrong to play around with those things, actually theyr pretty darn essential when it comes to blending colors BUT as I said one has to take care when using those things. For example if you use low opacity or flow setting and you brushsome red over let's say white surface the resulting color might not be what what you were intending. So you brush over it again, and again and again to get the color you wan't but the result is sort of messy batch of strokes. It's better to select the color you wan't and paint it with higher flow/opacity setting and then blend it in as you see fit.

    Vile, thanks for the advice.
    Actually

    That leaves me with two additional bad habits i need to work on: not using near black in darkest darks, and not licking the painting with short brushstrokes.

    With only until friday i've decided to enter Trevors scifi hunter contest.
    wip is down at the bottom. for the hunters creature i am thinking about a genetically manipulated bloodhound thingy..

    This month has not been very productive :o i've been to Paris for a few days
    and then of course xmas holidays.

    I didn't finish the first bloodsport challenge so i'm trying to push myself to do the swamp elder one by Dave Rapoza.
    some of these images are studies, some are thumbnails as it is required to include a page of studies relating directly to the final image of the challenge.

    My final for the swampelder challenge. ( due this friday )
    had alot of fun doing this, despite the cheesy b-movie direction i went with this.
    I am going to enter every challenge from now on as it changes every time from character design focus to environment, then composition and action..
    its too beneficial to pass up!

    Sushy, Thanks! another dutchie are rare sight indeed :o

    so here comes the boring part, well composition is really hard for one thing!
    creative illustratiom - loomis and some digital thumbnails.

    i am torn between doing an action packed cover or just the four heroes, without enemies or other distractions.
