    And you are very dedicated yourself dude. Love the landscape studies. I dont know if this is a critique, but I'd practice some line drawings in conjunction with pure painting studies. Keep em coming!

    Good stuff! Really crisp and well-thought brushwork, I wish I could do that.

    Nice nice textures, these all look very tied together. I've a feeling you have a preference for certain colour palettes, maybe watch out a little not to slip into a comfort zone?

    Hey yo. Nice progress. You got a good eye for colors and you seem to be starting to develop your own painterly way. Pay extra attention to figures in your images, some hardcore anatomy studies will pay loads in quality

    Hey man, glad to see you here again. It seems that you used your time wisely and did something. (not like me ) You have great knowledge of traditional painters. Could you recommend me any website or something which can help me with it? I don't have a clue of traditional painets.
    I'd like to see your traditional paintings too. What do you use, watercolors, oils? I have never tried any, it must be fun!
    Anyway great studies m8, firstly I thought you overlayd some photos but I am sure you use some special brushes. Good job!

    blu01: Thanks for stopping by man, about the traditional painters i really can't recommend any website but Wikipedia, the information over there is quite accurate, you can search for artist by their art period, search for art periods, there's is also a thread over here at Conceptart.org wich i think is the best thread in the entire forum, here: http://conceptart.org/forums/showthr...-s-Sweet-Picks just browse trough all the thread and pick the ones you like, then search for more of their work

    About the traditional mediums i use, right now I'm using pencil, charcoal, oils and pastels, i will try and take on with watercolor later when I'm accustomed to these mediums I'm using right now, here are some, i will post oils and pastels later.

    These are one Daniel Chester French bust study and two Berninis sculpture studies

    First three are pencil, second three are charcoal:

    Kevin: Ah, man i'm sorry i can't give more original work right now... i just don't feel is the right time to be doing them. thanks for the nice comment!

    I haven't photographed the pastels, but i have some oils in my hard drive, i'll post the pastels later, sorry:

    edit: I know the right hand and the left leg are out of proportion on the first sculpture study, so no need to criticize on those

    Hello there
    Great sketchbook! (refreshing too
    I really like how you weed out unnecessary details and concentrate on abstract/geometric design. And all that without loosing the readability. Really neat.
    Any chance you could post a video of making process? Or a gif?

    As for the last digital piece- the colors and mood are nice. Is he standing up to his ankles in water? if yes, some more indication of the sky reflection could help.

    Hey man, just thought i would check out your sketchbook, and dude, great studies, keep it going. remember to do conceptual stuff (if you want to be a concept artist that is.) you know, to apply all the fundamental stuff you are learning. Anyway, keep on rocking!

    blu01: Trying my best and sure, you're welcome, i just paint at home, never went to art school or anything related, self-taught, thanks for stopping by man

    kabewu: Thanks for the kind comment, and well that's an interesting description on my current ''style'' if we might call it that way.

    Never thought of something like that, i guess is just the brushwork but yes i sometimes get bored of so much details and i end up thinking on how i can make it simpler without losing the readability, i actually been thinking about a speed painting video, might do it one day... don't know really

    cbrn: Thanks man, Its interesting... because i really don't want to get into conceptual art, I'm more interested in the fine arts, that's why you don't see a lot of concepts in this sketchbook, there are some in pages 3 and 4 i think... but i really don't like them.

    So i began studying environments again and started on Deserts, six studies in total, three of them emphasizing on this effect called mirage, a distortion of the shape made by heat then i did a speed painting:

    Wow, it's great to come back to so much variety and progress in your work! I really admire the atmosphere and texture in your work, and the amount of studies you are doing! You inspire me to work harder. ( :
    I wish I could offer something helpful but I can't seem to, looks like it's frothing praise from me, haha. Great work!

    The confidence in your mark-making is really inspiring, especially in the digital work. (The pastel studies are nice too, but the texture of the paper seems to be taking away from some of the nice boldness you get otherwise.)
