    Great work Daniel! damn it's about time someone comments your sketchbook. So far you're off to a great start! moviestills is the shit. Great way of practicing composition and interesting lighting. The latest one kicks ass! Bram Stoker's Dracula is an all-time favourite of mine. Visually it's so damn hot. So many exciting shots to study in that movie.

    Looking at all your moviestills I remember something Brad Rigney said during an interview with Dave Rapoza. Brad talked about how he studied, and said he did shitloads of moviestills. But something he tried to do was draw the same scene from imagination afterwards, without looking at the reference, and adding some details from imagination as well. That might be something to explore as well. Keep up the awesome work man!

    DefiledVisions : Thanks alot for the kind words. and yeah bram stokerīs Dracula is stunning for sure. as you say there is alot of cool scenes to study in that one. Yeah you got a really good point there. otherwice i might loose what i learned in the process. i guess it will stick to me more if i apply it in a personal piece.

    Again!. Thx for taking your time and for the kind words! Cheers!

    Hey, Daniel, cool sketchbook! I've just been looking at Keith Parkinson's stuff (he did covers for some of my favourite books by Weiss and Hickman) and a couple of your pieces remind me of his style. Crisp edges and good strong colours. Good stuff. I also really like your movie stills. And a great suggestion from Defiledvisions re drawing them again from imagination - might give that a try myself at some point.

    One thing I noticed though. Some of your figures read a bit flat because the edges are too well defined and you havent lit them in the round, if that makes any sense.

    Anyway, just a thought. Hope it helps a little. Good luck and keep posting!

    These look amazing.
    I love your attention to detail - especially in the first few.

    I agree with the previous comments.
    Lots of potential here! great studies and clean lines.

    However I do think you have some issues with values. You use too much black
    and the contrast is a little all over the place so it's hard for the eyes
    to focus and your paintings look flat.
    Differentiate between different materials. Metal shouldnt have the same value gradation as cloth.

    To show you what I mean I did a quick paintover ( or manipulation rather) and
    it drastically improved how the painting reads in threedimensional space.
    I hope you don't mind

    Cool SB! I really like your painting style overall, and your studies are pretty sweet. In the second and last image in #1 your skin color choices seem on the flat side. There isn't a whole lot of color variation in your skin tones with the shadows, and in the last image there isn't a great deal of dimension on the side of the face which ends up making it look very flat. A highlight indication on her cheek would probably help that. Overall these are great.
    Keep it up!
