    Dom Sinkevic's Sketchbook

    Hello everyone! I was lurking the Internet being undetermined to post my studies. So after after a long journey through endless useless websites I come here. I'll be updating this thread weekly. I tended to procrastinate... but not anymore! I decided to put some pressure on myself and create this! Any help or feedback is more than appreciated! Enough of those words and here's my stuff. I hope you like it!

    the paintings so far are alright, but they lack a good range of values. try expanding on that!

    Cool start man, the studies are quite alright, work with values, practice with blacks and whites so you can see the difference between values, give it a try to that, and try working with perspective too, overall, your sketchbook is cool man, keep it up!

    It was good meeting you today, Dominik (I hope I've spelt your name right!)

    Studies are looking solid. I'd get some simple form/plane studies done to help your rendering from imagination. Keep it up!

    Hey Dom! Took me a while, but i have some crits for ya. Main advice right now is to do some digital Still Lifes and Master Studies, I think you'll learn a lot from their use of tone and edges. Your use of colour is looking good though, the snow scene is looking nice.

    That last study looks great, best piece of the thread so far! From what I can see here, I think your issue is you're using the same value range around the entire image. You either have a minimal value range or a broad value range, but either way you're flattening the image by making it too consistent in the painting. You want high contrast in the foreground and the focal points and let the background and unimportant elements fade a little. For example, in that first image of your last post, the guy looking at a futuristic city, the dark buildings in the distance are almost the same value as the foreground which is hurting your composition and sense of depth. And study up on composition as well btw as that seems to be another weak area for you. Keep up the good work!
