Hey thanks alot!
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
@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?
Some drawings from my freshman figure drawing class via a shitty cellphone cam.

Your color palettes are very lively! Studies are great too

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!!
Study! Really happy with this one.
A little (alot of) saturation for good measure

All Ive got for today, had some difficulty on the second one. Anyone have any tips for painting rocks?
Thanks alot dudes!
A lil study:
Your life drawings are pretty strong, i can find some elements in them that r just beautiful! As for your digital, also very good start, i think if you continue to try to do daily's you will improve at a good rate Keep it up!
W.I.P. from imagination
Wanted to see how far I could take this, spent like 7 hours on it. Learned alot. Brain hurts. Bed.
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.
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

Back in it.
Gonna keep this thing updated for real this time.
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.
Best thing in this sketchbook is the orangeboy, hands down. Bravo.
