Yesterday and today's work, those are all stuff painted from pictures, with colors recreated from a Zorn-like palette.
Same exercise, this time with a landscape and a little imagination.
Great work Panshi, the colours and values in these are amazing.
The landscape is coming along, looks like a pretty tricky task getting the lighting down on those bones though. Good luck
I'm only really asking this because I wanna try out some of these movie stills, but what is the average time spent on one of these? and also whats a Zorn-like palette
I spend 2 hours on each, just to set a time limit, and Zorn was a Swedish painter famous for his ability to capture human emotions in his oil portraits. He used a palette that now bears his name, and goes something like the one below, which is the one I used for the two last portraits. You'll find plenty of image references if you google 'Zorn palette', but I advise you not to use them to sample your colors, since most of them are photos taken from actual palettes, hence variations in hue caused by ambient lights and camera settings. Instead, try to create your own palette from digital colors found on the web, or copy this one if you like it :-)
Good luck with those movie stills, you'll see, that's a great way of practicing!
Today's trial at copying a scenary from a picture, using the following palette.
Oooh, pretty! I love your portrait studies too!
Nice stuff, love the portraits! Especially those portraying old people, got a good feel to em'
awesome stuff man! is this a second sketchbook for you? i recognise the name from somewheres... but loving the work man! very nice landscapes, and the trinity study is awesome. and the pirates one!!
Wow, you have a pretty cool sketchbook here! I really like the portraits. Keep doing what you do.
Great studies, the contrast and depth in the portraits are really nice!
Here is a rough study for a personal work, the idea being a priestess walking into a sacred pond of blood to ask the favors of a giant guardian. I started from a sketch done on Alchemy. It's the first time I start a work like that, but it's really funny, I invite you to try, if you haven't already!
All the best,
40min speed, the breakfast of champions!

love your colors , great work
You got a brilliant eye, well im sure both eyes are pretty great! Love that palette idea,
you really got skills when it comes to movie stills you capture the values and contrast
well, its always great and intimidating seeing great artists like you just sketching makes me
feel sh*t. Keep it up!!
Here is a development on the study posted earlier, following Tronrobot's advice, thanks man!
Adrian: thanks, I'll keep it up, but don't feel $hit, there's no reason ;-!
Some speedy stuff to start the day
Thanks for the comment Panshi, it's certainly motivating getting a comment from an artist like you! Great stuff, the mountain landscape stands out the most to me.
Wish I could be more helpful but I don't think I'm yet at the level to be criticizing artist of your level.
Here is a little improvement, I spent most of today on another painting, so it doesn't look like much.. I post it anyway, so you can criticize!
All the best!
Here is a speedy concept of male and female Khajiit (a race you can choose in the Elder Scrolls video game saga). I'm a huge, huge fan of this saga, having played the Morrowind opus for like 2000 hours, which almost made me fail my first year of high school (yeah, it was that bad). One thing that sucks, though, is that the Khajiit race has always been kind of ugly, like fat cat headed, rough fur and grotesque allure. Nothing of the noble grace and natural charisma that usually goes with cats, lions and such.
I thus tried to convey a more tribal, warrior touch to those noble beasts, adornating them with silver ethnic jewellery, and "feasting beast" war-paint (I imagined they'd dye the area surrounding their mouth to look more fearsome in battle).
The ear-pendent and tiara jewels are moon-sugar crystals, a substance for each every Khajiit has a sweet tooth. So it's pretty (for them I guess!), and can be used as money in case of utmost need.
Thanks for watching, jeez, I feel like I'm 15 all over again!

btw, that's what they look like in Morrowind (feel the pain):
