    Last two pieces are really strong, but I especially like the composition in this last one... and I don't think theres too much you could've
    referenced for this~* ONE SMALL THING, i'd say there is too much blur on the wing as it is closest to the body, the motion blur should
    dictate how much it is moving (the beginning would only move a couple feet up and down while the end would move like 30 feet or
    something up and down in that same "snapshot") My feeble attempt at crit
    Can't wait to see more~*

    effing brilliant!! only one thing that kind of bugs me, the little brown dots towards the bottom, near the center. They just don't do much for the painting IMO. just a very small thing, still not enough to take away from the sheer awesomeness! my jaw is on the floor.

    Art_Addict : thanks man.

    Sartell : haha you're totally right on the wing - if I was meticulous I should have made a lot of deifferernt blurs getting gradually biger with the length- but I'm lazy . Thanks for the comment!

    oalexis : thank you!

    Skeiff : thanks. I agree the dots are a bit out of place , untextured and all :/

    bhanu : thanks a lot!

    Hey m@. I like the new stuff. You're very good at bringing a focus into your speedpaints, but i think you may overdo it sometimes. Maybe you should have two or three lesser focal points. In the last one, it looks great when my eye is drawn to the dragon's head, but i can't look anywhere else, so i get bored faster. There should always be a path "in" to the drawing/painting so that you can stare for a while. I hope that made sense, keep up the rocking.

    i dont know if you have one somewhere, but id love to see an indepth tutorial on how you create this beautiful work. the last one is alot of fun. i know you said you didnt use ref, but do you use it in some of your works? the only thing i noticed about the above paint (other than the wing) is maybe a little more highlight on the left (our left) cliffs? the pillars of the bridge have alot of highlight on them, whereas the cliffs do not. otherwise looking great. i love playing around with your brushes and its fun to see how you use them in your paints.

    take care
    ryan

    Fishspawn : yeah I agree , I guess I should have detailed more the lower right zone..

    Deodatus : merci

    boto : thanks!

    Darktwin ; thank you

    Ryan DeMita : thanks for your comments. I agree the cliff is a bit dark, but it's not the same material as the pillar, and it's really in the soft transition zone, not yet in full light.
    About refs, well, I really don't use often, I don't exactly remember last time I did that.. I know I should work more from ref, I guess I'll learn more.

    Here's a new one, continued from an early stage of the last one...

    I know you make a lot of these without a clear idea of what you're going to create at the start, but do you have a general plan when you do these? You have a knack for leading the eye through the painting, even when it's simple.

    One thing I'm still having difficulty with is the idea of deep, low saturated blue shadows in daylight. Do you tend to paint the shapes in with base colours (rock, greenery etc) then lay in the shadow colours afterwards, or do you immediately go for the colours as they would be in shade? I know there's a lot to be said about fill light etc, but i'm interested in how you lay your colours down for creating form.
    I guess I could ask the same thing about atmospheric perspective. Do you automatically fill the far background with desaturated, low contrast colours, or do you haze them through after?

    Holy christ excellent work, the mood, style, and enviorments of these pieces are outstanding! Can't find a damn thing that needs improving.I love it!

    I'm so jealous of your skills, maybe one day I'll have the ability to produce art like that...

    j a k e : thank you

    MrBobMarley : thanks man, yeah defiinitely a fantasy / lotr inspiration there

    J.Peckham : thanks!

    Erilaz : Hey Martin, cool questions Well about the plan, it really depends. I usually don't have any plan at all when I start, or only a little thing in mind.. a mood, a general color style or something. So I start with some basic things.. big large gradients and color areas... If I have a landscape in mind I will start with the sky. Then block in big shapes that will refine on and eventually design more, in ways I didn't think of in the start.

    As for creating a visual path, well, as Fishspawn said, I'm not always succesful. I tend to overwork one idea and not look back a bit to think about the big picture. But there are simple rules for that, create a few points of focus or composition lines that will lead the eye. Contrast in color, sharpness, value etc can create those visual areas the eye will be leaded to. I have to say I don't really have the theory in mind when I paint and don't exactly construct my piece ("hey, I will put a focal point here, there, and there") , it's more like a feeling thing.

    About coloring shadows and atmospheric perspective. Well, it's a bit of a negative retroaction thing. I start with the color shadows and haze in mind, but I can tweak it in the fly. So I just chose the right shadow color (well, I try) and blueish or greyish (or whatever.. depends on the lighting conditions) tint for the far objects right away. But for instance, in this last pic, I added the light area and lit haze in near the waterfall, afterwards. it was just bluish at first with no light at all.

    Halifax : thanks man, glad to hear some people are jealous of me, cause I'm jealous of so many people too :p

    Justin Oaksford : thanks!

    Hey Mathias,

    Your work is really inspiration, especially since I've started working on speed paints myself.

    I know this is asking a bit too much, but could you make another process thing? Doesn't even need to have comments in it, just a sequence of snaps showing the progress. Thank you in advance! (pardon my fanboy behavior).

    oh, that last one is great, i actually like it more than the last. it feels very real, i love the falls in the background. theres something great about a totally open un-occupied space such as this. dragons and towns are great but i really enjoy this one. very cool

    First ones great, I would like to see more of that orange light in the back but its not hurting the image that its not there~*
    The second looks like it USED to be underwater and is now dried up, which is very cool. My only crit here would be that the
    flowers/guys/cube all fall on about the same line horizontally (about~*) Cool stuff, I hope you don't mind me loomin around
    here but I really envy your speed and atmosphere. Great stuff.

    I really like the first one a whole lot. I do get a very anxious feeling when I see it, like they are going to battle. I would say you hit the atmosphere just right. The red light from behind really pushes that feeling as well. Great use of colors to convey the mood. I know they're just quickies, but I think the mountain/wall in teh background could use a little more orange highlights from the fire, same with the architecture. As far as the middle ground, I'm not too sure what is going on there. It looks great, i'm just not sure how to read it. Just some suggestions, I hope you don't feel like I'm out of place to say those things.

    Great stuff m@. I really like the environment-
    http://mv.cgcommunity.com/images/landscape1.jpg
    It has more depth and form than the dragon rider image. Im just a sucker for panoramas though.

    Inspirational work.
