Great update! I'm loving those first three. First piece is the kind of surrealism that makes my brain hurt. Third piece, awesome expression and composition! Second piece.. those colours,, well. I suck at painting
A choon for you, if you haven't heard it already

hmmmmmm...... Your style is kinda dark but in a kids picture book sense, if you understand what I'm trying to say.

Hi kiera, nice stuff you have in here, i like the faces work, and your logos seems good too.
Maybe you should have a different approach than u usually have on graphic/design for more sophisticated illustrations,
like the one with the box and the bird or the head's interior, which seems a bit empty to me on those full white page,
i think you could try to include them in a background even if it's just suggested. anyway keep sharing

Hey there, thank you for the nice and kind replies .
I've been on a break from posting stuff online, everything around me has been incredibly busy.
Somehow I fell into a nice cozy art job where I can do all kinds of sweet illustrations and animation jobs in all different styles.
I#m doing landscape studies right now. Alright.
Let's see where this project takes me, I love doing landscape paintings but I'm not necessarily enjoying an epic or realistic look.
Here's the start of this series, chronologically:
Rocks aren't exactly my strongest point (I'm awful at rocks if you can't tell )

More paintings. In the meantime I did some drawings but I didn't try to scan them.
The tree segments on the mountain look awkward.
I did a series of drawings before this one.
Untill now I didn't consciously look for lines of action, dynamic shapes or a proper hierarchy of shapes.
The perspective grids also help me big time to keep the shapes in order.
I guess I've found a possible answer to the tree problem.
I am still not satisfied with the shape of the rocks in the snow. The masked random lines look too obvious like masked random lines.
The sky with the subtle brushstrokes is inspired by Kent Rockwell.
Maybe I should do a copy of his art, it has big shapes that are actually complicated and balanced.

Green is my favorite color but it is an unappealing color to look at.
When I look through the thumbs in my folder, my eyes are immediatley drawn to reds, oranges, yellows and purples.
They just glide over green and brown. Just look at this picture and the previous picture - the previous one looks a thousand times more interesting even though
it is a really quick thing with far les detail and thought.
Whoa did this one go wrong. I've wanted a red underpainting to shine through because No. 22 felt so green.
It messed up my color perception massivley, letting me fumble around awkwardly for an hour or so
and giving me blue sky and green grass even though in the ref they both had a brown, desaturated hue.
I wanted to tackle compositions with a lot of visual chaos in it,
wondering how I could possibly draw chaotic rocks and woods if I alread take 3 hours for the
This technique allowed me to search for other interesting types of landscapes.
I have the feeling that I wasn't properly building this one, I have to be cleaner with this technique.
It was really easy to change details, like giving the main rock a far darker tone.
The time I need for painting is also half the time I need for the more detailed stuff.
I also added a figure - this was interesting because in the first take I've made the mistake of changing the direction of the reflection.
Showed that I wasn't thinking hard enough.
It was late and I had a fever.
I want to push this hard eged style a bit more.
The hard edges makes it also easier to focus on composition, color and stylization and I have less trouble to draw from imagination.

Do you draw from a photo reference, real life or completely from your imagination? They are great! Hope to achieve your level some day
