    "I am aware that its usually not a good idea to copy other artist that arent masters."

    Who said those artists are not masters, as long as you find their work good and/or interesting enough to study from, it is good to study from them :>

    Nice progress so far :>

    Sushy is right.
    You can learn something from every artist you admire for their work.
    It doesnt matter what you paint or draw, everything's fine, but of course it helps if you conentrate on what you want to improve on.
    So far, you have a nice SB, some issues here and there, but you seem to work on that already.
    Keep it up.

    Hi sushy, hello Shockowaffel,

    As much as i like em they are no masters , but thats beside the point.
    yeah you can still learn plenty of things, hence the studies after these people.

    what i was getting at is to just be carefull not to go on autopilot when studying artists as everyone has his or her own flaws.
    Daniel Warren recently made a really good analogy on this subject, far better than i could say.
    thanks for reminding me not to take it too serious.

    gaaah! i suck at landscapes. Yet i'm starting to enjoy doing them.

    Trying to apply all the stuff i've done recently.
    i like how the giants turned out, that and the mountain range and knights where done from imagination.

    the knight on the other hand look really bad in comparison.
    so i have to work on that and keep doing more environments.

    there is a small hint of scale but i'm not quite there yet.
    also, clouds are hard :o

    still, i think its an improvement over previous image of horsemen fighting a giant.

    I like those horse studies, I can't do those...horse's proportions throw me off but you got them spot on.

    I am digging your use of color, great stuff.

    The giant pieces are really good as well. for this piece, I think you can push the value structure of those compositions a bit more, there is a suggestion of atmospheric perspective but the foreground isnt much darker or more defined than the giant. The whole environment could read as misty or slightly foggy. The left mountain is a bit confusing with shadows and how the light is falling but that isnt a huge issue.
    Hope that helps.

    Mangix, hey i hear you on the giants piece.
    it was honestly my first time breaking a comfortzone and just winging it.
    i've never done something as ambitious as this haha.

    I will do more studies on mountainscapes and good use of admospheric perspective to hopefully be more informed before jumping back in.
    Thanks for the detailed response.


    I only have this oinion stillife for now.
    in case your wondering, the white thing on the right is an animal jaw the split neatly in two after my andrew loomis book fell ontop of the skull, sending it falling off my bookshelf.

    crits always welcome.

    this is really nice, I think it's my favorite of your stuff actually? You should clean this up, it would make a very nice portfolio piece. It's just that the anatomy of the torso is a bit wanky and the edges could use some cleaning.

    The horses are gorgeous as always and I like the still life study. I think you can differentiate the table and the wall a bit more though, even if it looks that way in RL. It took me a bit to realized what it is.

    The hosrman picture is very ambitious, I should really try something like that. The main prob I see is that the horsemen are not in shadow, so they look a bit out of place. If you make the foreground enviro in light as well as the horseman, and the second horseman in shadow, I think it would be a great improvment.


    I'm enjoying this sketchbook more and more as you progress. And I send you a message about collab if you want to try it sometime.

    "gaaah! i suck at landscapes. "

    No. Your colors are coming along nicely. You just need to remember to use a smaller brush size when painting far away objects, and increasing the brush size the closer you get to the foreground. I'm no expert on it but I read that somewhere and it seemed to make sense.

    Got out of my batcave and bought brad rigney's download.
    Tried out some smudging for fun.. back when i didn't know tablets existed i used to ''paint'' my line drawings by mouse using exclusivly smudge tools.

    Those were the days.

    2 sketchys from life.

    Wow man! You're killing with these studies.
    The colors are amazing, especially in the masterstudies..
    The one you use as your avatar and the last one of the old man are the best.

    The old man's eyes aren't aligned correctly, but it's still a pretty darn good piece. Don't know if you do this much, but incase you don't - flip the canvas a few times early on to pick up on tiny errors.

    Zaphk, Thanks i'm just trying to exploit some of the few things i'm decent at.

    Christoffer, yeah you're right i kind of skewed the left eye.
    I dont flip often enough..bad habit!

    I'm doing so many master portraits cause i want to learn some of those beautiful skintones.
