    The cresent beach one is great man, Your landscapes are really shaping up. DO you paint/draw exactly as you see? Because sometimes it's better to do what you know if something doesnt come out right, and in my experience, it'll come out better.

    The new tree added to the old landscape is very nice dude. Dangerous colors but looking very cool. maybe you should lower the last 3-4 little flowers a bit, they make the field look less big. Smalltime really. Is that sculls in the leafs? Also i like the new ones a lot. Yeah go out and do life landscapes, its cool! Nice work dude!

    I agree about doing these from life and with traditional media, start off with a limited palette until you are comfortable with mixing the colors.

    I'm not sure if you using photos for reference but I think you are because of the blacks you put in your paintings. It's important to know the difference between a photo and a painting from life but it wouldn't help if I told you because It's something better learned on your own. When learning anatomy it is a good idea to have all your strokes fallow the form because your mind will pick up these strokes after a while and it will become automatic for you to draw any pose really fast because your mind knows the curves and contours of the body. hope this helps

    Justin those are great for acrylic. The only thing I use acrylics for is black and white paintings. If you can see everything in terms of value then it will be much easier to understand how to paint light. I've been doing black and white paintings for the past 2 years and they have helped me train my eye.

    I gotta agree about the black and white thing I have to say that I like your traditional paintings better, I guess it's just a personal preference. The one on the bottom is very pleasant to look at, I like it.

    I donno. there isn't much black in these, its just a darker colour than the original, say a dark green or w.e, i mean there needs to be a darkest dark and a lightest light....

    It doesnt seem to bother anyone else.

    Anyways, thanks for the comment on my traditional work.

    The one with the stairway to the door is really cool, very surreal. I like what you're going for in that one. Again, I think many of the brushstrokes seem arbitrary or random, try not to feel pressured to stick within a single style or technique when doing these, above all keep working at it

    Some little weird d00d i made up, just about a 5 min sketch Please dont crit on it hehe cause there is nothing to crit, considering, nothing really has to make sense on this on just something really for fun, you can tell me if you think its cool or not tho

    Thought i would show you weirdo's, oh yeah, im going to be picking up a new anatomy book hopefully soon, so you will see alot of anatomy studies coming around the corner.

    Well you tell me, as well as posting paintings/speed paintings, would you like to see my sketches of things, and anatomy studies etc more?

    Your speed-paintings are incredible! I love your choice of vibrant colors; they make your pieces so alive. I especially love this one: http://img294.echo.cx/img294/1190/hills6um.jpg
    Iím really feeling those colors, and the mood- as if itís about to rain.

    Hey if youíve got other sketches and anatomy I wanna see! Post as much variety as you want. Itíll help you progress in the areas youíre interested in, plus showing us what other styles you got up your sleeve. Keep up the speed paintings too, theyíre beautiful

    interesting character you got there! Just the proportions are wonky (which u already know!), but when you get that anatomy book it'll really point you in the right direction. can't wait to see more!

    The little character sketch is refreshing to see something different, and I won't crit it I'd LOVE to see anatomy studies, in fact, feel free to post whatever you draw, this IS a sketchbook... it's about experimenting and learning new things, have fun.

    I think the values in the newest landscape are alot more organized, remember, you really don't need alot of different values, many artists keep the values limited to a small number for organization.

    Not sure of a name for this one.

    You have to look really hard to see this one, if you cant see it for yourself, well, then i'll tell ya


    To the right there are some trees and leaves on them etc, below is some calm water with reflections of trees and leaves and colour on it. And in the background/middle ground there are more trees and bushes full of colour, Really close together, which makes it almost hard to figure out what is going on in this.
