    Hi, in case you didn't see me respond to you, I just wanted to say again, thanks for posting on my thread! =] I love your environment study; I think you captured the small patches of color really well. When I've tried to do that before, I go so slowly that the light has changed midway through it =P I look forward to seeing more, keep it up! =]

    Thanks for stopping by! I've been busy but it's almost done! NoKtPapilio whenever I go to view your sketchbook it loads really slowly. It could be because I'm using Google Chrome (I think Fire Fox is faster for CA) but it might be good to go back and re-upload the large images as smaller ones.

    Woooooh, I'm liking what I'm seeing KyTran. Your values and colors are looking good, as well as your stroke economy. On the dragon piece, it seems to be stretched height wise, thinking it could be that you pulled back from the edge when painting the neck and head. You know, most artists when they draw or paint will shy away from the edge. A good way to alleviate the issue is to make the image bigger, then crop it down to what ever size you need when you are finished. This way everything will still look correct even if it runs of the page. Keep up the good work.

    Thanks Palladium, you're totally right and expanding the canvas sounds like a great remedy, i'll try that! Thanks for your insight. I put that one down with the intention of coming back to it but haven't gotten around to finishing it yet. By the way Bruce Lee is one of my idols, thought it was pretty cool you had a quote by him.

    quick sketch, the entrance to some sort of fortress

    One of the most enjoyable sketches I've ever done! I needed less brush strokes than usual and the strokes just went where I wanted them to go.
