Thanks for the encouragement Daz !
heres some stuff im working on at the moment
Im trying to work more with photos to try to get a more realistic and textured look.. not as easy as i thought, blending photos and brushstrokes without making it look awfully overworked is not easy. Any crits is highly welcomed, im at a crucial moment where i need my stuff to get as good as i can.
some fun with colors, was trying to reverse things , saturation especially.
i think i prefer the red one, not sure !!
thanks for looking !!
These last two environments are REALLY good. A massive step up from your previous work.
I think with regards to photos and brushes it looks like you need to use more suitable brushes and more complicated/detailed brushes. Photos and textures are normally very very detailed, theres tonnes of variation in colour and tone like single pixel. So if your using very plain brushes they tend to stand out. Like those are the spots that stand out for me in these, like the big blobs on the tower in the first picture.
On the other hand, youve done a really fucking good job. Absolutely love them.
Keep up the posting, looking forward to seeing some more work like this
Feelin the mood/atmosphere and the light you've got in that first one.
: fmf sketchbookery :
The details are nicely executed, you definitely got what you wanted from your references! One thing I wonder about is you planning of the composition of the work. When you are doing a layout of the elements on the page you have to consider the viewers eye. There are different things going on with your detail studies but it seems too influenced by geometry or computer games.
I love your style. Your buildings and landscapes look really realistic.
Wow dude you got some mad skills. I wonder if you would be interested to join my crew.

Hey man, I really like the loose painterly feel to your paintings. Very nice!
thanks guys !!!
Andy: Thanks for the crit man, ill be careful to use more grainy brushes, tried it out on those new enviro.
Mecha: Yo ! thanks for still watching my sb, its in fact heavily influenced by videogames.. ;( im doing stuff a bit generic for my portefolio to look versatile, i need to do more studies once i got time !! i dont particully enjoy using photos but thats what my employer is looking for.
Snobby: hehe thanks !! still not as strong as Jean Claude Vanm Damm tho..
ok so i reworked a bit this one
a quick sketch , with an heavy abuse of Cicinimo brushes ;\
thanks a lot too his brush, learned a lot just by playing with them.. i need to make a brush set more organised and with less useless brushes.
2 lame sketches.. i think its the first time i do an interior like that
trying something after reading stuff about the old masters !
awesome light & shadow; nice work
brahimpag: Thank you ! yes this sketchbook is really old, and not that much stuff in it lol And i really dont think im a big artist, maybe when ill nail a job doing i would be closer to a great artist, but thanks !
biglu: Thanks !
PhatAndy: I wasnt sutre if the dark values would be notcieable, because on my computer at work it looked fine but at home i just see a dark mass because contrast tend to differ a lot.. i also started that painting on my laptop, which has a crazy amount of reflection on the screen all the time, laptop sucks for that.
zero: thanks mate
Again, a rock Study from a pic from the web... been a while since ive done a study, was a good occasion to try brushes and apply some new conception of colors, slight hue shift in light and shadow zones.
So just that for today, more to come !!!
Damn, I've missed out on some sweet updates.
At least i've seen them now, so i guess i'm alright
Anyway... Awesome stuff. Your atmosphere and colours are sweet!
Ah I just browsed through. That's really beautiful scenery you make, great textures. I really don't have anything constructive to say since it's above my level. ^^
Latest updates are really sweet Virg keep it up!
Inspiring stuff man
your enviorments are so beautiful!
