Here's my second entry to the CHOW challenge - The Guardian of the Stairway to Heaven. I choose to use the Haiku trail in Hawai, whitch is also known as "The Stairway to Heaven". In this perspective, my guardian is an old Hawaiian man and his mighty weapon is his stange walk stick that is magical. I would be really pleased to get critics because I know I have a lot to improve!

My first real environnement concept! I'll try to do a couple more. I'm not quite good in perspective

Here is a recent drawing I did with the theme "East Meets West":
I wanted to mix the beauty and the sofness of a japanesse geisha with a stereotyped blond american beauty, all through a comic style inspired. Don't be afraid to give critics!

Aweh dude! Loving your sketchbook here man, got so much variety! and dig the exploration you did of your spider character in one of the first posts- very proffesional as for crit- in your environments, you clearly have a hell of an imagination but they seem a little flat- like, no clear definition between foreground, mid and the background. I haven't done any myself tbh but what I do know is that objects which are further away apppear lighter due to atmospheric pressure and the forground objects appear much darker, you can see it in this dude's speedpainting: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=el0wWiXIPtU. hope that helped man, thanks again for dropping by my sb- can't wait to see what you put out next

Hey Renart! Thanks for stepping at my SB!
I can see you have a lot of ideas going on over your head, really good for you! But you might want to focus a little bit more over the fundamentals at first. Don't stop doing things that you like! But try to spend some time doing the boring things like perspective, anatomy, still-life, studies from reference, If you do so, in no time, you will end up being amazingly good!. Cheers and thanks again mate!

I love those environment drawings! Especially the city ones. I like how the lines pull you into the focal point. I reckon some of the others could do with a focal point too. Also, some stronger contrast between light and dark.
