    Very much like the colors in this one!

    I'd like to see your other pieces larger, that one with the robot looks awesome

    False advertising! I was expecting to see a city full of barf, or maybe a city made of barf. But that's not the case

    I think your first pic (with the castle) has a bit too busy a color schema. You've got warms and cools all over the place without a real set plan.

    You've got to think about your light source (I'm assuming that's the sun). It's behind the castle, yet the front of the castle (even all the way to the bottom) is brightly lit and very saturated.

    The first thing to address IMO would be the actual structure of the castle. I would design that out first in 3 pt perspective and get that looking right... and then start planning the placement of your colors. Overall the schema is too saturated and jumbled right now.

    Keep working. There's no barf here... not even barf of the mind

    Thinking connects desire with creation.
    How good are you?

    I like your use of color.. Definitely think that detailing some parts out would help a lot

    @Sage- I agree, the castle was actually a bit of an after thought and I kind of just blocked it without any initial sketch. Went a bit crazy with the colors but I think that's what I like about it, I'm usually alot more considerate of lighting and perspective in realistic work. Anyways, thanks for the constructive criticism!

    @Natalia- Thanks! I know what you mean, I got pretty bored while working on it so I just left it where it was, might come back and refine it later.

    My first attempt at a Sargent copy, took me longer than id like to admit and came out kind of blech.

    Should I give myself a set amount of time to complete these?

    WOAAAAH!! sweet; the only thing i have a lil problem with is the all over the place colour in some, it can be really jarring at times and my attention span suddenly gets reeeeeeeeeeeeeeeally short. what i really wish to see is more detail, or at least just refining some parts a bit. but seriously dude, these own!!

    Thanks for visiting These look great. I did daily paintings like these for a while, about 150 before i started slacking off. You look to be at a good spot. keep it up and you can only improve!

    On the most recent picture: Good stuff! The composition's solid and I like how you've placed your colours. In general, I'd recommend that you take a look at colour theory, as well as looking at some landscape pieces. My favourite ones would have to be anything by Turner - go check him out.

    Otherwise, for landscapes, consider looking a little into perspective. Not just for construction, but to add to the dynamism of what would otherwise be static pieces. Scott Robertson has some lectures on perspective fundamentals that might serve you well.

    In the meantime, soldier on, and Good Luck!

    Hey thanks guys!

    @ATP, thanks for the insight, will definitely check out Turners stuff.

    Barf City

    Just some quick fixes: added some more atmosphere, made the focal point better.

    Edit: looking at them side by side made me realize I lost alot of the warmth by adding the blue atmospheric fog. I kind of like it less actually. Ah well.

    Edit 2: Gah had to fix it

    great stuff man. I love your color use. How do you like those model drawing classes? I love sketching quick gesture poses, I can keep at it for hours and not get bored. Really gets me warmed up and lose. I know it can be frustrating in the beginning but after a while it really becomes a fun thing to do.

    At the start of your sketchbook, the pieces lacked hard edges and clarity; the lighting was intuitively placed and so on. As far as your latest drawings go, there is definitely improvement. You're on the right track.
