    Its great how you have variety in your work, taking things in a wide perspective is surely a challenge and you seem to be kicking his ass. I'll check out the alchemy though looks very interesting. Also when doing figures its important to take your time, one minute studies in my opinion are best for rhythm and form. Liking the cave painting alot, the greens definitely set the mood. But, be very careful when using the airbrush it easily ruins solid forms and structure. Don't get caught in its illusion of aesthetics.

    Keep it up!

    Like Ravendell said, great variety!! I try very much different styles too, but I'm not even close to your level
    I really like the first picture and the alchemy figure. Also the cave you made with GIMP - was nice to see how it progressed.
    I personally dislike GIMP, but that's probably cause I'm spoiled and used to Photoshop. However if people can use it I don't see any problems with that

    I subscribed for the variety! I'd like to see many different ways of art to get an idea of what exactly fits the most to myself. Thanks for your posts

    Good colours and composition on that last one, I just wish it had a little more clarity to give it that sense of being rocky and solid, y'know? I feel like it needs more hard edged strokes to contrast the soft edged strokes... ahh, but I guess someone has already said that. Right now it's coming off as a little blurry. Also, it seems a little odd to me to have some of those more saturated greens in the shadows of the cave. I'd imagine the colours would be getting more saturated towards that light source and more grey and muddy towards the shadows.

    Nice stuff!

    I dig your linework and vectors. The fighter looks really dynamic indeed. And yeah, the right hand could've been a little bit raised/bent at the elbow to give it even more punch. But it looks real good anyway.

    If you want to avoid fuzziness in your colors/landscapes, maybe you could try blocking out some major foreground shapes with a polygonal lasso, fill the selection and then add a bit of soft light, but not enough to blur the edges.

    Thanks for all the advice on using the hard brush and lasso tool. I'll have to give that a try on my next enviro. In the meantime, here's a WIP for a tattoo design. It's going to be a mother walking with her little boy.

    You are colorblind as in green/red colorblind!?

    It sure as hell doesn't stop you from creating great stuff, the first one is so beautiful!
    And your sculpture is really cool, so is the cave painting

    Eh, and I'm 30, starting being serious about art 8 months ago when I was 29 so just imagine where you'll be at my age if you keep it up this great

    thanks for the responses, everyone. my life has been kinda hectic lately and I'm finding it hard to find time to draw. Anyways, here's a new preliminary sketch for the tattoo. Ended up scrapping the original design. This one is probably going to go through some changes before I'm happy with it.

    Haven't really done any drawing/painting in a while, but I did whip this out in pencil during a slow day at work. Might paint it later.

    Looking good! Great start, especially your first environment.

    And you are never too old. That's the great thing about art - you can only get better with time, and there is no limit!

    the design for the face (?) on your first post looks great and so does the scenary/type thing the colors look great to me!

    definitely as you could probably already tell from your gesture drawings, try to get some more studies done with anatomy, learning some of the basics will help you a lot when it comes to gestures as you really need to understand the proportions/balancing of weight before it can be rendered quickly

    all the best!
