    I really like your landscapes. You are quite good at making it look like there is really atmosphere in all of them.

    Hay,

    I saw your picture in the EOW finals thread and really thought it was great.

    This is awesome work here! Your designs are lovely, and I'm very envious of your color sense!

    All best,

    Weatherby

    Saw your most recent post in the new EOW and wanted to see more of your stuff. Someone else posted that your atmospherics are really nice, and I agree with that completely. It really helps to sell the depth and scope of your environments. Keep it up

    I also recently picked up Corel X3 when they offered it 1/2 off last week. Eager to install and see how it differs from Photoshop, which is my current choice of digital medium.

    Thank you tienchi I will be trying,
    I had a lot of fun with that one view3onic, thanks,
    Vulgar` thanks

    Another self portrait which does not entirely look like me, still need to really get on that whole anatomy and proportions thing, I think I tend go overboard and do a ton of self portraits when suggested to do one, I go all egotistical and narcissistic. ok I'm going to do some composition 1.1 stuff and put this damn mirror away.
    ?? Which is better, the measure with a utensil method or think about the form in a 3D space method?

    Scrolled down and saw Rob Ford. HE'S EVERYWHERE...

    You have some lovely work Those are some really nice self portraits. You got a much nicer and clearer value range and shapes in the greyscale which I think you could apply more to the colour (try making that one greyscale and then do adjustments>match colours>*other image* to see the difference). I can see you actively manipulated the edges in that one, and I like the focus created through that.

    Re: utensil measure and 3D visualization- you use one to support the other. It's not an all or nothing deal. You understand how the shape works, then you can use other tools like observing the negative space, angles, measuring, alignments etc. to make sure you are as accurate as possible. Ideally a lot of that becomes second nature and you don't have to think about it as being totally separate from one another.

    Really cool work, particularly like your ID stuff. I'm kind of envious of your ability to pull this stuff from your imagination. Looking forward to seeing more.
