    These aren't too bad, if you're just starting out. I might suggest working on the tree painting and mountain painting some more. Find references if you aren't using them already. Also, pay attention to your light sources. It will help show the forms better and tie your pictures together. Right now, especially in the tree painting, all the elements seem very separate from each other.

    I did this Game of Thrones inspired wall of ice painting just now. I think it's okay.

    Also a quick light study. Tell me what you think! Are the shadows dark enough compared to the brights?

    Here's a study of Feng Zhu's mountains! I find mountains sooo hard to do, so this is definately a step in the right direction, i think

    Hey I think you should really invest some time in working on the fundamentals, no matter what type of art you want to do, having a working understanding of colour theory, and anatomy is always important. James Gurney's Colour and Light is great, and so are the Andrew Loomis books, which you can easily find pdfs of. Good luck!

    Hey! Yeah, i already have Loomis' book about character drawing and have been reading some of it. Not nearly enough though! In the beginning i just wanted to like pump out a lot of drawings to sort of get the feel of everything. I will definately read some more

    Hi Daniel, Cool start with your sketchbook.

    Like Psychobuddy said, it is really important to learn the fundamentals and Loomis, Hogarth and Bridgman are essential. However, you won't last very long if you feel forced to do something you don't enjoy, try getting a balance of doing studies and stuff from imagination. That way you can keep up the intensity, apply new principles but not get frustrated doing the same things over and over. I think the Feng mountains look really good.

    About the light studies, you'll definitely need references (as with most things), find some tutorials, pictures and youtube vids to give explanations on the way light hits objects, casts shadows and reflects.

    Here is a link that might be useful (I've just been through these myself!)
