    Agerkvist- Yeah started from a photo. I've never actually done any landscape stuff so trying to get to grips with things like mountains and trees. This summer I'll be doing landscapes from life. Atm doing lot's of experimenting as ideally I'd like to generate really rough ideas and compositions quickly.

    Mike Butkus- Thanks man! You're one of my fav artists so what can I say.

    Dahlia- Yeah the horse is way wonky. It's actually just a broom shaft with a paper mache head he is riding. Monty Python style
    The Hunger Games has never really appealed to me to be honest, but sci fi on Mars is a different kettle of fishies.
    Yep glad to be alive today for sure. I would no doubt have been crucified, blood eagled or accused of some sort of sorcery by now as would most of us.

    Ex-Spectator- Thanks for visiting!

    Freakmod- Thanks for the crit, agree with all points. Just learning landscapey stuff atm. All my digital so far is pretty much just messing about learning. My traditional stuff like the drawings in the beginning have been put on hold so I can focus my efforts on digital. Hope to start doing life figures in oil paint in the near future though.

    springofsea-Hey thanks for visiting! Your graphic design work is awesome I'll post progress shots at some point if I ever stick with something for more than one day.

    Mike- Thanks for the encouragement mate! Still got tons to learn, keep picking up little things though. Like a few days ago I learned how to switch the background colours about using X and use it for quick B/W sketching rather than manually picking/changing values. Think another year and I'll feel more confident with regards to work flow and general digital trickery.

    Thanks for all the comments guys, really appreciate you all taking the time.

    Had another little mess about with the knight scene. Decided I didn't like it enough to continue, the side view of the knight was really bugging me. Cropped the castle and thought about changing the composition and have an army leaving the castle for battle or something. Also thought about changing the bridge into a really tall one over a waterfall. Ahh no real attachment to it if I'm honest, will probably just move on. Oh yeah the mountains! Dropped some texture in there and then used two rock brushes-one from Jaime Jones and one from another set. Included the initial test that came out looking like some sort of hydro power plant.

    A few sci fi silhouettes using pretty much 2 values and the background x button switch.

    Really nice updated Bri, I have to say that you are catching up quickly with your digital painting skills. Must be all those level up studies. Great stuff.

    Dahlia- Thanks! The rock sketch is just a bunch of brush stampiness. Was quite surprised how effective the rocks look though, guess it's good for generating stuff quickly, but no real substitute for studies.

    lorehly- Hey thanks for taking the time

    Marian- Hey where you been! We are waiting for some more of your awesome traditional stuff!

    Few rough doodles. Started with line for a change with one of them, don't know why as it didn't really benefit anything. Really haven't bothered with line work at all since going digital, I'm still mesmerised at making shapes even if they are mostly just black shapes. Will probably still be happily making black blobs for years to come.... Need to spend a few days doing nothing but line work and shake things up a bit.

    Some rough pencils from reference. Figured I should probably not neglect the traditional side too much, so from now on I'll try and balance both. Painted straight on top of the drawing without cleaning it up which might be considered bad practice but figured it wouldn't matter as it's covered over anyhow. Will go back and finish the study at some point, wanna do more black blob characters! Oh yeah the clavicle is off center in the very first drawing, forgot to fix it.

    Great traditionals! I like how you do the shading. It looks very clean.

    Thanks guys, appreciate you taking the time.

    Got the paints out and had a mess about. 2.5 hours, oil on acrylic. Might do more when there is some natural light. Unfortunately the camera won't pick up some of the colours in this orange artificial light.

    Reference from mjranum on DA. He has some great ref pics.

    Went to do more today but 5 mins in had to stop and do something else. Took a pic in daylight though to see the colour comparison. Unfortunately the camera still struggles to pick up the colour in the dark areas, like the shadow under her nose is actually a deep iron red surrounded by greens and blues, as are areas in the eyes. It's a shame because it creates a weird optical effect when looking at it in the flesh, like it's glowing or something... Gonna leave most of it as abstract marks I think, also quite tempted to put stag horns in and a lunar eclipse. I really don't know why I feel the urge to put horns on everything hehe..

    Her features are a little squint, might just leave them like that.

    I'm not sure which I admire most - your digital or your traditional skills.

    What are you up to in Level up now?
