SmileWithStyle - I've played through Iwd over a dozen times. I suppose it influenced my 'artistic sensitivity'. Needless to say I take that as a comliment and I wish I deserved it. Oh well maybe one day.

Unfortunately I haven't had any major breaktroughs with my art. I still can't force myself to paint something difficult - like faces or hands. For today's post I have a rather empty landscape, 2 experiments with technique (faceless dudes) and an orc I made for an ArtOrder challenge (didn't bother to submit though, in case you wonder why it's not in the listings on there).
Also, I can't believe I used the term 'artistic sensitivity'. It sounds so posh it makes me feel sick of myself.

Nice stuff you have here
I like the B&W ones, they have this energy to them, quite fun to watch.
The coloured stuff is also quite good, again, very nice atmosphere and I love your landscapes (something I'm rather bad at XD ). Also cool approach to not drawing faces, to blur them out like that

It’s a big question. I obsess about colour.
The most important thing is to have a working model of colour relativity in your head – when you get there you can look at any image and start seeing what colours are really there. Then you start building your own theories about what colour to put next to what to get the feeling you want. I’m a bit of a geek – the kind that needs a spreadsheet to play a video game – so I ended up with this crazy elaborate colour theory of my own. There isn’t one secret to colour. Make up theories and test them. Keep what you like, discard what you don’t.
I’d love to make a big tutorial about colour but I’m not a very well-rounded painter yet. I need more mileage.
If you’d like a good and short tut about colour, imho the best thing you can find on the internet are tutorials by Vance Kovacs and Jason Manley (the one from 2002). At least as far as we’re talking about free stuff, I don’t know about books or DVDs.

Thanks for all the positive comments and stars. Much appreciated. I'm sorry for being lazy with posting (or drawing, actually).
The sketches are an exercise - basically I'm trying to memorize some fantasy costume by repetition. I'm not sure if did me any good tbh.
The Bougereau study looks nothing like the original - my bad, but still I think I learned something from it. 2 fantasy/medieval portraits, one of them rather bad. Or both, not sure the second one I like.

Thanks Psychobuddy, I'm glad you like it, and that you took the time to comment - half the time I'm not really sure if anyone looks at the more obscure sketchbooks, my own included.
The update is 2 master copies that don't resemble originals much and a dragon. I can't tell if it's good or horrible because I've been looking at it too long, so crits and comments all the more welcome

Hey man, nice sketchbook, I like your creatures a lot. I also like the sense of mood you portray in your work, but you tend to keep the same type of mood for most of your work. Try switching it up and creating a more happy or joyful mood in some pieces with your colours etc, also you dont seem to take your pieces to a finish? I'd definitely like to see one you pushed all the way as far as you could. I hope this was in some way helpful to you, keep up the good work!
