    Hi Wes welcome. Could you please try to downsize your images a bit? As of right now with my big monitor I still cannot see without scrolling the entirety of the pieces you are posting. I would say perhaps keep them to around 800x600 or 1024x768 ish regions to show to the broadest of audiences.

    The last painting of the coastline you did seems way too "textury." Adding tons of photo textures to the bg and then painting with an airbrush over it will not help your art skills grow in the direction you would want them to. I would suggest that you keep going in the direction that you did with your first post, which was try to do it from looking at real life. Learn your skills from observation. Photo textures inlaid in concept art is a very hard thing to pull off right and I do not think that just at this moment you are there yet. Stick to your basics and as another poster said "work your butt off!"

    Hope to see more, and NEVER give up.

    Just a wip that I have been working on from a pencil sketch. I realize that I haven't posted in a very long time, which is my mistake. I haven't really been drawing either... except for in my drawing class at school. I rediscovered how much fun it is to paint in photoshop and so I am hoping to do a lot more posts in this upcoming year.

    Hey Wes,

    It´s good to hear that you want to start updating this more often, and you should. If your serious about making this into your job you should do more study like drawings. With that I mean, draw full pages with figures, bones, perspective, heads things like that to learn the fundamentals. If you start now and you keep at it for 3 years ( or whenever your done with highschool ) you'll be at a professional level. Good luck and I hope you keep drawing and updating this often so we can see your progess.

    -Dennis

    Here is the final painting. I chose not to add color (I think it's better that way) mainly because I am not very good at color just quite yet. Hope you guys like.

    All of these are from my imagination. I kinda tried to mix up the colors but as you may see I kinda liked the more green and blue color schemes better. Crits are welcome, hope you enjoy.
