Fuck yeah dude, love the ArtRages!
That back study up there's awesome and same with that last one.
robot arms are sweet as too, damn this is a fine sb!
No real crits sorry, apart from with some of the AR painting the colours get a bit muddy,
keep at it man,

hey thats wicked' haha i was wait'n i think one of those was lurk'n in my apartment cant tell though i sqaushed it w/ my skateboard... i really dig its design an that new goute you droped is one of my all time favorites' keep ROCK'N
Spect: So now your bearings are all cluttered up with tentacle goo?
'Nother ArtRage.. elephant this time... no idea why.. wanted to paint an elephant.. and a zoom to show the sloppy brushwork.. haha.. when I do these, I stay zoomed out so I see the whole piece at all times, so they tend to get a bit.. chunky... that's part of what I like with these though
Sweet lawd! This last one is awesome! Those brushstrokes are totally sex, i want artrage too now!! I mean, i was tempted before, but that latest one really has something going on! A crit to be polite is in order i think.. Some tree studies would do you good i think. They look a little weird, especially where the trunk goes thin, then thicker above the thin parts, which makes the tree look less elegant. I dig the execution of the trees, my only beef is the shape.
The idea in this one is pretty cool, but I think the artrage brushstrokes are drawing too much attention to themselves this time. Also the rock formations, especially on the left, look too big--like if I was standing next to them, I'd be taller than the bridge. That's a little tricky because it's certainly conceivable they could be that big, but to my eye it's throwing off the scale. I'd try dividing those up into smaller forms.
Artrage is giving your digital work a real oil paints look! I think the way the brushstrokes remain unblended on the elephant give it a lot more character than if it had been smooth. Props on the water for that enviro, tough task!

I like your last enviroment paintng. Great feeling of traditional media use. This is the effect I'm looking for in my paintings. I try ArtRage but this program doesn't offer so much freedom in mixing paintng like PS, so I decline. Maybe I must back to this program and try it again.

Slash: Thanks bro! Just got the full version of ArtRage at the office yesterday.. hehe.. Suddenly I can add thinners to my paint! *geekout*
max1975: Thanks for the crits and thoughts! I'll have a look at dividing the larger shapes and post an update!
Spect: Thanks, homes! Yeah, I'll do more of those fo' sho'! Starting to like doing enviros.. hehe
Josef K.: Glad you like! ArtRage is a soopah cheap program (full version for 25$) that simulates traditional media... and yeah.. definately worth a try! I love it! Here's the URL for the homepage.. they have a free version to download as well: Ambient Design
Eon: Thanks! Yeah, I kinda liked the chunky feel too
Sorknes: Thanks Sorky! There's gonna be more ArtRage coming from this corner
mariusz: Yeah, I revert to Photoshop for the stuff that ArtRage can't handle.. so it's often a mix of the two. ArtRage is so much lighter than Painter.. and I kinda like that the options are kinda limited. The full version supports layers and blending modes and imports/exports .psd files, so it meshes really nicely.
Ok.. a few sketches.. was outta country with my girlfriend for a screening of a bunch of shorts on the London Film School.. was an awesome, tight scheduled trip.. Big sorry to the CA people in London.. I wanted to meet all of you guys, but I didn't have time at all.. full throttle all day and we collapsed at the hotel every night.. heh.. Got a few sketches in though..
damn i love that thing, you're a great painter but that one in particular you take it even further cause its really lovable. something about the colors. alright on second look the colors are fleshy and sexual and maybe... i need to get a grip on my mind lol
like it green colour scheme (heh) is more coherent and makes more sense for underwater scenery. perhaps use white stripes on the red for more agressive state? e.g. since you can't see red itself that well under water. (change to orange?)
last concept is really neat. your concepts are getting a lot better.
for some of the sketches of the lamppost and stuff a while back, i would watch the middle parts of your sketches. for instance the outline of the lamppost looks good but the middle is kind of confusing.
I really like your work but whenever I'm looking through your sketchbook I have the feeling you should put some more time on each piece. Maybe you are concentrating to much on quantity instead quality. I think some extra time (or slower creation of each piece) could bring your art to a totally new level.
