    @Aragah Olá Pedro ! Yeah I totally bought a Cintiq and it's great. Don't be jealous though, the tool doesn't make the artist in any way
    Yeah color is a big issue for me lately. Here's the thing though: I work on a Laptop. As such my screen colors suck ass.
    Working on the cintiq really helped me to establish this fact and I'm working to resolve it ! Thank you and keep tuned!

    @Stryno Thanks mate, glad you like it I've got ways to go on perspective, I still have trouble in thinking of the vanishing points way outside the page.

    @kevin Thanks you! I will keep it up And you can expect that winged dude to be finished up sometime soon!

    Some more stuff for'ya! Please do tear it apart with your critiques!

    You have have got some great studies in here. I love how you use blocks of value and colour. Something I must concentrate on instead of trying to blend the hell out of everything. Really nice control. Which Cintiq do you have?

    Hey Damien! Thank you on the kind words. Blocking out the values should always come first. You can always blend them together later anyways..
    I've got myself a Cintiq 12wx a while ago, and though I love it I'm sorry to say I haven't done many paintings on it yet. Hopefully I'll be able to really get things going during December.

    Lots of good work going on here lots of good studies and imaginative expression. Like the way you are keeping things loose and just letting the ideas out. Keep it up

    I like the way you approach your art, creating various thumbnails. It is one approach that I find many people lack (including me, for a long time). There is really very little alternative to thumbnails if you want to quickly check the various elements of your composition before jumping into the work. So, great work on that.

    However, having said that, I would like to point out a couple of things that I think might be of use to you. Firstly, colour harmony. I think you're not letting your colours interact with each other as much as you should, or could. Right now they're quite isolated, and sometimes when they do interact, they're looking a bit muddy, because you're getting some temperatures incorrect. I think you need to step back, look at your work from a new perspective, and if you can, read (or re-read) the section on colours in Andrew Loomis' Creative Illustration.

    Secondly, I think you'll be able to give your work a lot of volume if you first divide your forms into basic divisions of light and dark. For a simple approach, Google 'Reilly method'. Also, if you divide your forms so, you can easily let your shadow areas be influenced by surrounding colours, and thus establish colour harmony. Controlling temperature becomes easy too.

    There are three things you need to remember here:

    *The darkest area in the light, is lighter than the lightest area in the dark.

    *In cool light, the shadows are warm, while the lighted areas are cool. Vice versa in warm lighting.

    *Lighted areas act as 'reflectors', they reflect and emit light, while the areas in shadow 'absorb' light, and tend to be influenced by surrounding colour.

    I hope that helps. Sorry for the long ramble.

    Vritra Thanks for all the tips, I do find I struggle with color! I've got Color and Light recently but haven't gotten around to reading it and applying the knowledge. I'll get right on it though!
    Also wasn't aware of the Reilly method (I'd here about it but never looked into to it) , but I'll be sure to read on it now!
    More art coming soon!

    Okay so I just spent more time than I care to admit on getting this sketch down. Though it would be a breeze since I already had a thumbnail and could picture the scene in my head, but linework's a bi***.
    Anyway, thoughts , comments and critiques are appreciated !

    Hi guys, I'm back! I've been working on a concept for an exiled tribe called Alcateia. They are expert hunters and worship the moon.
    Hope you like it , I'll keep developing them as time goes on. Cheers!

    hey torres i like your work a lot, your drawings and especially how you construct things, but i think your digital painting skills can be refined a little, this site helped me a ton:http://www.ctrlpaint.com/

    Whoa seems really nice resource for learning I'll give it a try this year. I just started taking art seriously this last year and, while I agree my digital painting skills are lacking, I'm bound to improve as long as I keep at it! Thanks you and have a merry Christmas!

    Man! Second page is looking good, your digital brushwork doesn't bother me now, and I am liking your attention to complete overall design. I have ordered James Gurney's Color and Light, are you finding the book has helped you? the post were you mentioned it you said you hadn't started applying it yet, I was just wondering if you have had a chance and if it helped you any.

    Thanks man, yeah Gurney's book is an awesome read.. I do find it hard to aply it though since it's not realy based on specific exercises or homework .
    I've been focusing on my linework lately

    It's been a while uh? Well I'm back

    Hi guys! It's been a while but I'm back with new art from my company's new Android game Depths! We are trying to reach international markets so it would awesome if you decided to download the game and try it out! After all, it's free!

    Either way, hope you like the work and I wish a good 2014!
