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!

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?
I am sure that the man from last 2 pictures is Bear Grylls, isn't he? Great studies as always m8.
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
Wow I really love your environment sketches man.
the style that you paint some of your environments with is pretty damn neat. I like
Charlie R. Faerber
walnut: thanks man, will keep that in mind
blu01: well i hope not, i'm not really fond of people that drink their own piss, haha cheers man
xyphid: thanks for stopping by, i will definitely do more anatomy studies then, cheers
DennisH-Art: thanks! i'm glad you feel inspired by looking at my work
Pete Hidalgo: thanks!
CR Faerber: thanks!
so, felt quite anemic to paint today, here's what i've been up to these days,
first one is after Sargent, and the second one after Sorolla
Did quite a bit while the site was down, mostly traditionals, but here are some digitals: first one is a speed painting i did after taking pictures of the sky at the back of my yard, the other ones are tundra environment studies:

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

Man, you are hard-worker! Thanks for useful link. Do you draw/ paint at home or you attend art school/course.
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:
some superb mountainage there. loads of nice stuff going on man, good work!
sb most art copied to page 1

Velocity Kendall: Thanks a lot man
cedule: I'm glad they are useful, thanks for stoping by man
Pastels, i'll upload them in order of creation not artist
these are rough copies of Ilya Repin (first and third) Edgar Degas (second) Gustave Caillebotte (fourth and fifth) and John S. Sargent (sixth)
just flipped your sb, awesome painterly style, less IS more keep it up
My sketchbook Comments & Crits always welcome!
Fany pastels! Those desert paintings a post back looked very effective too. Well i like pretty much everything on this entire page.
that was a refreshing trip through your sketchbook, really nice stuff!..really.
lots of favs here but these two especially made me stop.
kuumehike: I've hear that one before.. thanks for stopping by!
jtaart: Yes i really like that one, thanks man
walnut: been enjoying pastels so far, they're fun to work with... Thanks man!
rattus: Thank you very much for taking the time to browse through my sketchbook
Here, more traditionals, A bernini study in pencil and charcoal and a De Gas in pastels (that one was lot of fun) and a Speed painting based on what i learned from the desert's studies:

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!
