    Some of today's studies and couple of thumbnails. The best way to get free ideas is reading books, for example those three are straight from the Hobbit.

    Love that last thumbnail, also the one with the tree on the last page. You should really work one of those out in color and fully render it. Would be good practice and you'd have a great piece at the end of it.

    Thanks Dennis, I'll do a couple more and pick my favorite.
    Giantano I colored them with a waterbrush filled with diluted ink. It works just like marker and you can get different tones from only one brush. Also it won't smear the ballpoint like markers do.

    Thanks, I'll definitely try my best to finish that painting!
    I can finally start doing some real plein-air pretty soon. If the nice weather continues I'll go to the local waterfront to paint some boats.

    Another plein-air. I had less than hour to capture the lighting so I didn't have the time to do proper background.

    Lots of work must be done until this is finished. I think I'm going to change the colors a little.

    Awesome work! I love all the environments you've been doing, very good perspective. You really know how to capture a scene

    The colored thumbnail looks good but you've lost a bit of the depth which makes the original thumbnail so appealing. The colors in the distance should be less saturated to make the atmospheric perspective stronger and push the background actually back. These plein air paintings are great studies and they look fantastic, awesome job!

    Hey what a coincidence, I just bought gouache colors the other day although I had no idea what they are.
    They sure have potential, keep it up!

    Yes, I feel a bit stuck with the painting at the moment. I didn't capture the mood too well. I might start over, but I'll definitely finish it.

    Thanks Malu! Gouache sure is lots of fun but a bit tricky.

    I tried painting that thumbnail with gouache as well. It looks like he/she is riding from autumn to winter.

    Oh the leaves are awesome and the colours work pretty well overall. I did a little overpaint to show you what I meant with the atmospheric perspective. The colours are all very saturated which makes it feel somewhat flat.

    Still loving your gouache work, although I think it looks much better if you leave out the linework. I can see all the black lines in the latest building you painted, and it just doesn't have the character your previous paintings did.

    Thanks Dennis, I'll try to keep that in mind! Although that's really hard to achieve with gouache. I can add the atmospheric haze digitally later.
    Phan-Thom I agree, shouldn't have done that.

    One thing I think is a huge advantage with traditional is that I can restrict my color palette. It makes painting much easier when you have only few colors to pick from. In digital you have all the colors to choose from and sometimes it feels a bit overwhelming.

    I'm doing a storyboard of a scene from the Hobbit. I'm doing it as an assingment for my Finnish class. It's quite fun, especially because everybody else has to write an essay.

    Couple more frames for my storyboard. I'll probably share the whole thing after it's finished.

    Dude, your work is coming along nicely! Loving those gouache paintings! Really inspirational stuff. I've been trying to do some work in gouache this week but felt like I really blew it, ha. Its hard as hell to stay consistent I'm finding. Anyways, keep up the good work!

    Here's the finished storyboard. It has no dialogue because I couldn't translate the Finnish version.

    My initial idea for this weeks CHOW. I wanted him to feel outlandish so I gave him a French 1800th century military uniform.
