    Liking those still lifes earlier this page! See how you have so strong contrasts and sense of lighting early on, even though the shapes are not polished yet. That's what makes them look good, since the value and light is generally correct. You should aim for similar effect in your environments too, just pick a light source and light your objects, be it palm trees or mountains, like you would light an apple on a table. And paint it the same way, boldly. Like suggested above, you should aim to have more variation in your color - in reality there's a tremendous color variety everywhere. Learning to simplify that in a way that is not chaotic but still realistic should be your goal. Anyway, good luck, keep painting!

    Your work has gotten a notch better since you've worked the contrast more.
    Great job with those last envos and the still life wip from post 66 is really good!
    I'd like to see that one finished.

    Good luck with your studies,
    Cheers

    First off, wow I gotta thank you all for the nice feedback you all have given to me. really big
    Have been inactive the last week or over that since I had some sickness and lots of other issues came in the way. So big thank you all, cheered me up alot.

    LoudLikeNature Thank you! You are absolutly right and I do have some problems with it, I dont want to go into extreme photorealism even tho I think thoose who do that are incredible amazing. Yeah I have cs5 havent tried thoose but will play with thoose abit Thank you alot

    R-K Thank you, I do have loads to learn about values and edges but Im trying to make it as simple as I can even tho most of the time I screw things off and make it more complicated than it should ^^
    Thank you for that tip on lightning. I appreciate it alot.

    Xcarbon Dont be sorry about that I missed a few things too in your SB and u cant really keep track of all posts Thank you you be proud of yourself too. looking back at the newest post u made. f-cking awesome

    snatti Thanks for the push I will

    MattGamer Still lifes are fun sometimes and sometimes they are less fun but thank you

    BlackDelphin Thank you, its hard to notice difference in your own work so thank you for mentioning the contrast. I had loads of fun and I hope to improve even more, the still life I dont think will be finished im affraid. I had to take the items away because there wasnt enough space for me to keep them on the place. When I did post I had in mind that I should go back to it but time ran out and I had to rearrange abit. But it was fun and I bet I can make more still lifes

    demeter_luna Hey and thank you Its great to hear from another girl too Thank you so much for your comment!

    Big hug to you all!

    A pity that still won't be retouches, but like you said, there will be more!
    That new still life that you posted, the base of the bowl seems a bit small, and
    a bit to far towards the left. Also, the horizon line near the package is fuzzy.
    Perhaps concentrate more on the basic refines, try to keep them tidy looking.

    Thank you for your visit as well, and keep getting better and better,
    and happy woman's day!

    i like those gestures.... i like the way you're making those lines .. the curve lines and the straight ones .. your line look much more confident!!

    and the still life is *as always* awesome!! do you always set them up in your home??
    those dragons look cool ...abit loose but still awesome!!
    if dragons intrest you then you should watch this
    "Paint a pair of dragons with Ubisoft's Remko Troost"
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ujcVZL4gUb4
    the way he paint dragons is freaking fantastic.... he makes everything from scratch ... makes his own textures, brushes and also setting the flow of the brush to direction to create awesome horns

    keep up the good work!!
    i wanna se some more awesome dragons

    Wow Nina! post #86 is off the hook! All the 3 images are really great. I particularly love the little figure drawings, what a great way to learn anatomy and posing!
    I think maybe you should develop on the dragon heads you sketched out, I would love to see a fully rendered one!
    cheers!

    Great update, just wanted to add to what xcarbon was saying in atmospheric perspective here is a good example http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedi...spective_1.JPG , i learned from james paick to try to think in 3 layers, foreground, middle ground and background, (which you already know of), but also try to to create more layers within those, such as, add maybe several layers of foreground, several layers of middle ground,it will help increase the depth of your images and putting atmospheric perspective in betew some of these layers will give the illusion of even more depth, even tho sometimes it would not occur in the scene your painting in its natural conditions, but its a good way to "fake" the depth, this is just something i learned and use quite a bit, hope it can be somewhat helpful, forsatt jobba hort! ^^
