    Today I needed a few quick ideas for some cliffs that I'm making in a 3D scene and I did some quick and rough studies in Photoshop before modeling them. It looks like a mess but it gave me a few good ideas.
    The more I did the better ideas I got... I should have done more. I will do more.

    I also did two more studies of pictures I took earlier this year.

    I did two more studies from photos I took last year in Skiathos, Greece. Lovely place.

    I tried an interesting brush on the second study, one that feels very hard to control and gives random strokes but it felt nice, spontaneous. Brushes are strong...

    Today I did another study of a panoramic photo I took last autumn near Vanatorile Ponorului. It was warm outside but there was some snow in the river bed.
    The forest in the back was challenging and the snow doesn't look that good but overall I like how it turned out.

    I was away for a few days and I took my pen and marker with me to sketch. I didn't use markers to shade until now but I like it so far. It's a little annoying because of the fixed size of the marker but I plan to look into ink wash in the new future, that should be more fun to work with. Sketching with ink was also hard because you can't erase or hide mistakes, you really have to think carefully before drawing each line.

    I plan to look more into this lite travel supplies pack I could use that can give me nice contrast, a nice way to shade and apply basic colors. As I said I plan to buy a waterbrush and use it with ink and maybe watercolor pencils for more color variation. Any other tips?
    I like the look of the sketches above so I'm going with ink for now.

    I was planning to make boats the entire week but as I mentioned earlier I was away from my computer. I might continue with boats next week.
    Today I made a finishing boat.

    woah! I think im becoming one of your biggest fans. your grasp on light is amazing. your paintings look like 3d models painted over with photoshop. especially the last 2 boats

    Thanks gamersgene.

    I haven't posted for some time but I didn't stop drawing... I went traditional for a few weeks. You can see what I've been up to on my blog http://andrei313.blogspot.ro/

    I did a quick environment today for a project I want to wok on in the following months. It will be a wild west small town. I will do a few quick mood/lighting/color concepts to figure out what I want. I have a few objects modeled, like the windmill bellow - I painted over the 3D model to give it some color and adjust some things here and there.
    I will post more about this project in the near future.
    It doesn't look like what I have in mind but I'm not expecting to get it right with my first concept... so more will come.

    Thanks Lux_Aeterna.

    I did another concept for the little environment I'm working on. I'm getting closer the look I want.

    Just like before I blocked in the scene in 3D and placed the camera where I wanted and then I painted it in Photoshop.
    Doing the Rango studies a few weeks ago helped a lot.

    Thanks Staal Sander, I updated the crosses with some color variation. Thanks for the tip.

    I did another one similar to the last drawing:
