    The last painting is cool as usual, keep it up. (Sorry I don't have much else to add, bash me on the head with a hammer if you like )

    Something you should try working on is modeling your brushstrokes with the form of the subject, I think they would look alot better that way.
    The one from the beach is nice, even though the building has some perspective issues.

    What do you mean?

    If you mean, rendering the picture more by blending the brushstrokes, i can already do that. I usually, leave it like that, cause i like the painterly feel of it.

    Sorry I wasn't more specific, I don't mean blend the brushstrokes, and you can be as painterly as you like, nothing wrong with that What I mean was try having your brushstrokes follow the contours and curves of the object you are depicting, instead of having them go in arbitrary directions. Now go draw/paint =P

    Those are some really nice colors in that landscape. It looks very impressionistic. Keep cranking these out! You did a nice job of capturing the light and atmosphere.

    Justin- beautiful painting of stanley park! I really love the texture; brings a good look and feel to the painting.
    The helicopter is soooo sweet! I can tell it was rushed though from the lines. If you get the time work on a specific piece for a while longer and try perfecting it. Just give those lines a little tlc and with the extra effort you would really notice the difference in quality.
    Keep it up, and canít wait to see more!

    The last two look great, the sky in the landscape has beautiful colors, great job on the loomis study too! That's one of my favorite drawings by Mr. Loomis.

    I love the sky landscape-

    However, alot of your paintings seem extremely rough- And in some you do this, but try using Big, as well as long strokes, I mean, in the sky of the sunset I can see you did, but like, for the water, do nice subtle curves, and attain a basic shape with your arm (Providing you are using a tablet), as opposed to using thin lines. (Water)

    Just a small comment. Later!

    Thanks Pixel, but yeah these look rough cause well, they are, these are all speed paints done in 30 mins - 2hrs each > for the paintings, the drawings are done from 5 - 30 mins each. So yea Some of my paintings though i perposselly look rough looking, and impressionistic/painterly, because well thats my style and thats just what i like As for the water, if i used big brush strokes throughout the whole thing well i think it would look dumb it would be too smooth and not look like water. IMO, a i like the impressionistic look to it instead. Its really a personal preference i guess Thansk though.

    Also just to mention, i am not gonna have as much time to post, even draw and paint lately, Cause i am working full time again and am busy all day and most of the night And well im saving to go to Fine Arts school. Hope to get the money soon.

    Justin, those oils are sweet! I think the second is better, I can't tell you how much I like the blue, atmospheric perspective in the distance. The house looks out of place to me though, it looks like it's gonna tip over to the right, and it seems an unnatural maroon color. Great otherwise!

    Hi ::
    Nice anatomical studies... you are comparitively good at drawing the Middle part of the body than the rest,... Keep on studying man... they really payoff...
    As for suggestions : try making those outlines a bit bolder.

    First oil ever!?!? Niccccceee When I started first using oils compared to watercolours and acrylics, it really took me a while to get used to the paint drying. Arg, you wanna keep working on a piece but have to wait until certain sections dry
    Youíre doing a very good job tho! Again love the textures! Like Dan said, the blue color in the background is beautiful.
    Flattered to know I am an inspiration I know exactly what you mean; Iíll be feeling a bit unmotivated and then after reading your comments and everybody elseís, the positive words and support just feed me with inspiration. Itís so great and Iím happy to hear I do the same for you
    Oh and I canít wait to see those portraits!

    Your first oil painting man, I love it.That's insane for 2 hours. It's totally something I would frame and hang in my living room.

    Keep up the landscapes- They're looking good. I'm starting to think we teen artists here are gonna make a group called Quantum Black, when we all get together later in life. XD Here's to hoping!

    some great stuff with the painterly gear, but your figures are lacking in a few respects such as the proper anatomy and proportions, also I think you my be trying to undertake too many subject matter types at once, from environments to machines to people and thus you don't markedly improve a great deal with each piece. You may also want to pick up a good perspective book as well, a few of the buildings have iffy perspectives going on.
