    hey Farvus! been a little while hehe, sorry I haven't stopped in. Your work is looking great, and I'm especially enjoying the watercolors. Also, as hp was mentioning above, your linework is getting reaaally good; the vehicle designs are really a great example of that. Nice face in the bottom right of the martian enviro too Criticism! Hmmm not a whole lot I can see to crit; as always you're working really well in a lot of areas. If anything I would say to be careful of the curvaceousness of some of your lines, looking primarily at these anatomy studies. They don't look bad by any means (and perhaps some of my personal stylistic preferences are leaking in to this) but some of the lines (the line of the front of the shin on the top right and bottom left for instance) look like they should perhaps be a bit straighter. Obviously just my opinion, but figured I'd throw it out there

    Keep up the great work and a happy new year to ya!

    damdischink - Thanks. Yeah. Silhouettes are a bit faster.
    D@niel - Thanks, man.
    ~Faust~ - Thanks. Actually I got lately inspired by ilustrator Carlos Fonseca. Another style to the mix .
    Onir - Thanks. I'll pay more attention to lines. Happy new year to ya too.
    Kfeeras - Thanks. I'm waiting for the new european worshop since I got here. Hope there will be some chance to meet all you nice people .

    I finally managed to paint some gouache textures that could be scanned and used as overlay for enviros and other art. They are not very fascinating to look at but I also made new watercolor paintings. I'm quickly catching how to approach this medium. There are always some small failures though. What annoys me much more is time spent on searching for the right photo reference.

    Hey farvus! The improvement since I was here last is quite impressive I love your enviros, as I have from the start but what really impresses me are these designdoodles, both the spaceships and the cars, really wonderfull lines you got going there. The watercolour stuff is vibrant and quite beautifull, but could still need some work on being more through, stylewise, but apart from that, fan flibbin tastic!

    Keep in touch mate

    Nice watercolors! Love em all, though the color and shapes in the second one really stand out to me (the shapes give it a nice abstract quality, while still remaining quite legible overall). I've always loved watercolors, but I'm not all that great with them; i hear alot of people use them as a sketching medium, but I slow down ALOT when I give them a go. Would love to hear about your process if you wouldn't mind elaborating

    Also, re-reading my post, I feel like I was a bit hypocritical about your lines--saying how good they were they were in one things then saying to watch them in another. I apologize for that; I think your lines are great honestly and I'd say just keep pushing what you're doing. Your accuracy has improved a great deal from your earlier sketchbooks and will continue to do so I'm sure. So yea-- keep going!

    Mischeviouslittleelf - Thanks! I haven't painted much watercolors before so they might be not enough comfident.
    Onir - It's really not a problem. You might be right. I sometimes don't focus much on lines and it shows a bit.
    As for the process for watercolors... it's pretty simple. First I do a very light and loose pencil sketch. I mark shadow/ highlight edges with lines. Then I try to go from the lightest values to the darkest and I try to simplify them. Usually it can be white of paper for highlight, bright color for light and dark for shadow. Sometimes the contrast might be very strong and then white of paper becomes light side. The most useful thing I noticed when painting is to put the stroke with the right speed. Usually faster and lighter strokes give sharp edges. Slow and heavy strokes give softer edges. There are many other small things that matter but you need to try it out yourself to really experience them.

    I'm out of watercolor paper so these are my last 3 for a while. I'll try to continue when I buy new one.
    All from photo ref. I'm not satisfied with the last one. Too much mistakes during the process.

    D@niel, hp - Thanks!

    I got lately into some creative block. I hope I'll manage to get rid of that and start doing some imagination stuff.
    Here's some enviro sketch. I tried different techniques and textures.

    HOOOOOOOoooooooooooo pretty Don't know about the figure for scale, though. It's already confusing as it is since the main focus is the Doorway and such, but the different background in the right part of the image kind of cuts it off entirely, so I'm not 100% convinced that part is really belonging into the environment.

    Still a major step-up, though. Did you use 3D in the proces? I know you don't need it that badly, just curious

    wookiedabo - Thanks!
    ~Faust~ - Yeah. I messed up scale and didn't notice that. I don't usually correct speedpaints but here's exception... and no. I didn't use 3d for that one.
    Hive_minD - Inspiration is always welcome .

    Ooh okay, very nice approach to watercolors; will have to give that a go if I can get my hands on some again great looking watercolors as always and this latest environment is progressing really nicely. Love the variety and layering of textures, really helps the atmosphere. Keep up the good work man, I hope you can get past the block you say you're having as well!

    septomin - Thanks!
    Walid D - Thanks, man.
    Onir - I'm not watercolor master . You gotta ask for process someone more experienced.

    Not much time for drawing. I sketched bunch of characters. First one no ref. In the second one I to draw half from photos and half from imagination.

    Last enviro looks amazing. Nice array of values leads the eye and the colors are interesting too. I can almost see it as a set of sci fi film noir detective story like Blade Runner

    happy birthday from earlier hope it went well.

    I like the watercolours. They could do with some more building onto perhaps? to give them more shadow and depth maybe. I love the two compositions in your latest post I hope you take them further.

    Wow I haven't posted here so long, but I still follow your every update, I swear! Anyways, your recent OC-speedies are extremely nice, great gesture, perspective and storytelling! I wish I could crit you, but you're pretty solid all around Maybe spend a bit more time studying materials, the different radiosity of metal vs plastic vs ceramics etc. It would greatly help your design-renders I guess.
    #
    Other than that I your watercolors! Too bad I can't use ventrillo, would've been awesome chatting with you. Hopefully another time!
