well guys hey I'm tony "t-eight" c. and finally I found the time to post an new thread in the Art Discussion.
I just liked to show some of my artwork. especially my environment artwork. I show u my favorite ones and hopefully I got some critique from u. All is welcome. Comments, critique, smiles and more
Hi Tony, you know this really does not belong in the Art Discussion, moving it to the critique section.
You use way, way too much black. Pure blacks like that are actually really rare in nature, so unless you're doing a Caravaggio study or something you should use them very sparingly. Pure blacks and whites also flatten everything out something firece. I recommend this book

for getting a hang of shading and color, I just finished it and it helped me out a lot.
You need to learn how light behaves. Right now you don't have a light source in any of these pictures, and it's clear you had been ad libbing without stopping to think.
Another thing to think about is value composition. You tend to ignore it completely, making most lit things the same brightness. An interplay of light and dark is essential for a good environment.
I agree with the previous poster's book recommendation.
oh well and now I see my pic's (environments) with a new blink! u opened my eyes haha... but yea i think u are right! I new a clarify light source in each picture and I draw a lot to black to deep shadows.
searched for some youtube videos about environment drawings and i tryed to regard what u and humboldt squid said. thanks for ur help/comments
