i absolutely love ur enviros!! got any tips for painting better enviros?.. also how to paint from imagination more effectively? i'd be very interested in hearing ur opinion.. please post it in my sketchbook, thank u!
Thanks so much for the support and feedback! I'll reply in a bit, in a hurry atm D:
here is a concept-art tribute to SAAB in sweden where a lot of my friends and family work which is undergoing some heavy financial problems atm and might be on its way to "shut down". This was done for a group on facebook called "save saab".
This is probably the first car I ever draw (or paint) since 2006 when I started drawing D; SO i wish I had done more studying first haha! Although I know saab quite well haha ^^
Stefefef: Thanks man! Very honored by you doing that!
.:WoLf:. : Thanks!
Andrew Sonea: Thanks mate!
Wreck: Thank you, that something i'm striving for!
dan_liimatta: Tackar! yen, grafisktforum.org Är inte hundra på att det var där.. men vet att jag sett dina saker någon annanstans! haha. Tack för stjärnorna!
Eightball_ : Haha thank you!
invinciblewombat: Thanks man! I will !
JakeB: Thank you Glad to hear that! Yeah, I've had too many looooong breaks from art.. thats how it goes when you're a busy student haha. But now its full-time everyday!
Yor: Thanks !
p_sage: shah I was afraid I had posted something I shouldn't there for a while.. D: Am working on stuff in that direction for a commission haha!
Mussy: Thanks man, I'll definitely drop by! Thanks for looking!
here is my process shots for the EOW, some people were asking for it Thanks for your support! Unfortunately I didn't made the poll this time.. graphics card was burned up 5 or so days before the final, and I wasn't able to work on the piece on another computer.. the only downside to working digital except for the oil-paint smell!
Really love what your doing lately Dile.
Any chance we can get a link to a high-res version of that last environment. I really wanna see how your working your paint and layers and stuff. You seem to be developing a really nice style. Its awesome, I wanna see em bigger!
Keep up the great work regardless man.

The thing that stands out to me the most going through your sketchbook so far is that you seem like to play with low lighting, a lot of your pieces have a great sense of drama to them. Interesting view points too, like the green enviro piece going up stairs a few pages back. Can't wait to see what you do next.
Sorry for the lack of artwork in here.. I'm so friggin' busy at the moment its crazy.. and it's supposed to be summerbreak? HELL NO. haha! Anyways.. I'm getting tired of this one now so I'll leave it here till I find a better time to revive it/continue on it...
Thanks so much for all the comments/crits/feedback, here, on fb and in the EOW threads.. I'm learning tons!
It is a good start, especially the face. Some areas look a bit odd though like on the arm where it is a sharp transition from pure white to black, or on the pelvis/hip where the forms looks a bit mushy and uncertain.
Also, it is hard to tell based on the photo quality, but it looks like you *gasp* smudged! I would stick to using the pencil tip and layering washes of light hatching. You have a lot better control of value and transitions, and using stroke direction can describe the form much better.
Try to get you scanner installed and then post up a ton more pencils. You and I both know that is how to improve the fastest.

Hey man, good to see you're still cooking, and in good manner I would say, you genious you. See you've gotten really good, and that warms the heart, having not seen your work in a long while I had a wee break from art things, but I'm back on track now, heading to uni next year, so I suspect I'll come lurking back to the boards eventually, as I'm moving away from xbox, friends and other distractions (Though hoping the latter will replace itself with the new surroundings). Would love to catch up on art and life in general, maybe I could interest you in a collaboration of sorts, revitalize old ideas or concepts? anyway, mostly wanted to say hi, and to remind you how good you've gotten along the way. Great job man
hey dile, nice work, For your latest EOW , I think post 94 was the strongest stage of the painting ... only 2 major hues noticeable, less modeling , more silhouettes, less information in the shadow. The result is really good but I think you lost some of that good stuff during the process. Just my 2 cents
