    last two, looking good
    But on the misty landscape, instead of just putting mist over first. Try to do the landscape first, then maybe go over with a low opacity brush so you get some mist?
    And on the gasmask dude, try get some more value, and try focus on one area, but I guess you went for the impasto style I think it is called.

    haha ok here's some stuff. Some loomis studies" All of these were done in about 5 - 10 mins. Alot of these, i really just aimed on the accuracy of the body rather than the face, so if some of the faces look messed up well its cause i did them ultra fast

    Ah! Excellent update!
    I think the strongest piece is the 4th. You're on the right track, now just keep doing that!! The third and first are really good too, but the parts you rushed over are throwing me off... maybe you should leave the faces blank when you do body studies because a poor face can really ruin an otherwise great image.

    Yeah it's great to see some figure drawing! Have you practiced the stuff in the first section of the book thoroughly? Mr. Loomis advises not to move on to the latter section until you have, but I guess you can do it your way, no one's gonna have a cow =P If you do decide to copy some of the rendered drawings remember to take your time, you will learn more. Keep up the good job!

    the landscapes on your first page are really nice and have a lot of subtle emotion. these figure drawings are also cool, i would do more of these because you are definately on the right track!

    Thanks guys, Really appreciate your comments. Also thank you for your suggestions they are all really helpful.


    I gotta get back to the studies again, like tommorow

    I did, this one in 2 hrs. First time ever using pastels. This is done with oil pastels.



    This was done for a commission i got just recently. Done in 5 hrs. Acrylic on 12 x 24 canvas.



    And this was done tonight in 1.5 hrs. I have been trying to get this look for ages now.



    Justin.

    "Off to draw/paint/study more.

    Nice oil pastel - great stuff to work with(dirty fingers ). Very nice colors. Nice touch using blue for shading and in the grass. Well done. The last one has a nice actionfeel to it even tho its just an empty inviro piece.

    Thanks Fellah!

    Yeah, actually i had alot of fun using the oil pastels, and this was only my first time, and definetely not last, i got really dirty, which i dont normally, which was cool And it was just exciting playing with the pastels. I think in there own way they have there own, looks to them. I gotta try out the chalk ones as well, it looks like you can create some cool effects with them!

    extremely sweet landscapes!
    The foreground trees in the first, and the mountains in the second are incredible.

    The colors in the first landscape are really beautiful, good job on the landscapes!
    The woman is constructed fairly well but I think it's too busy with details, but I commend you on experimenting! Don't be afraid to try new things, sometimes they come out great.

    Thanks dan, yeah as for the women, to tell ya the truth, it kinda got ruined when it was scanned, the computer version makes it look dull. And like you said too busy in a way. Cause when i look at the original version, it is much brighter and nicer etc... hmmm And under good lighting... i wonder if i can get a better pic...

    Justin.

    Justin - that last landscape is very nice man. Nothing happens and yet so much is going on. Made sence? Nice using so much space for the sky and still having focus on the forrest. Promissing stuff. The tree makes me want to draw trees - nice dude.

    Dan: Thanks man, umm its just blue pencil. But i had to push really friggin hard to get the dark areas, my hand hurts now...

    Fellah: Thanks man. "Nothing happens and yet so much is going on" As for the last landscape im thinking of possible adding a tree in the middle/foreground to the left, and "some" distant trees behind the ones already there, to add a bit of depth.

    Thanks guys

    Justin.

    The tree looks a little too purple, but I guess that depends on what kind of tree it is and how you wanted to depict it. Good job nonetheless.

    bloddy innocence

    The tank and the trees in the "swamp" or near the lake I woudl say are your strongest pieces, but with the bloody innocence I think the idea would have been more affective with a less bright pink flowers or white flowers, the pink and the red combine too well. anyway good works you've got here hope you post some more some time

    Hey thanks sems, im glad you like some of my work, Yeah i agree with you on the tank i like that one But, the swamp one i kinda dislike.... I kinda like where im going with this new style rigth now as it is more painterly/traditionaly looking in a way, which i like best

    Here is another one i did, in about 4hrs for this one had to add a bit more detail to it. I hope you all like it

    Cresent Beach - Neighbour hood

    neighbour hood

    those last two are looking really good, there are some few areas in the first one that has areas that keep making me think parts are a photo, really love how youve done the tree too, keep it up

    The latest paintings are nice, but you should probably be concerned more with overall forms and planes than details. The building in the crescent neighbourhood
    is a good example, if you turn it greyscale it shows little form, the roof is an example of another area that looks very flat. Still, you could have intended it to look this way, so feel free to call me an ass if so But I think "painterly" effects are a byproduct and should be subordinate to organization and form, blah, forgive me for rambling.
