    Sooooooo, it's been a while, again. I graduated. Which feels great! Now I can paint. I've said that the whole time, that when I'm done, I will paint. All the time. So far it's been working out better than expected. Coffee is my friend. I've painted all my awake time for the past two weeks, and I feel I've eliminated a lot of bad habits and some rust. Now time to study even more! I've recently stopped using opacity when I paint. It helps with a lot of things, mainly it helps me figure out what I "do know" how to paint, and what I can paint thanks to a series of "happy accidents". Some of those series I see as habits, I've developed them through un-careful doodling and sketching, and they have slowly but surely made their way into my work. Right away after stopping to use opacity I started to see value patterns a lot stronger. I can tell from just looking at work done from months ago that I wasn't paying attention.

    Anyway I won't rant about recent discoveries or epiphanies...I'll let the work speak for myself in the future, instead.

    Right now I'm doing the E.O.W over at CA.org. It's supposed to be a collaboration with who ever you choose to work with.. I started mine out with James McCrory whom I don't think own an account here. However, he had to leave for a few days, so after we had finished sketching and finalizing our ideas, I took over and I'm now working on the final painting. This is where it's at now. I've had so much fun with this piece already, from the very beginning when we were just coming up with ideas and doing problem solving, to the very late stages where I decided not to use textures or fancy overlays for everything, but rather take my time and paint everything in (using 99% hard brushes from the original photoshop brushset =D ). I usually tell myself it's okay to use textures, and I also assure myself I *CAN* actually paint it and that I'm just saving time. I think that is true most of the time, but I also have to remember to actually do it, especially when there are no excuse not to, like here. Right now the only textures that were used, comes from our early thumbnails and sketches, I also used a texture for the pipes in the foreground.. There are still bits of pieces left from that stage. Except for that, I'm proud to say that I've taken my time here, and will continue to do so through-out the painting until' I'm done, or deadline forces me to be so.
    *REUPLOAD BECAUSE OF BAD COLORMANAGEMENT

    Thanks for the support, guys!

    Some progress on the EOW... middle ground still needs a lot of work ... crits are ofcourse welcome.. I'm going to try to wrap this one up before monday... I've already worked on it pretty much fulltime for 4-5 days. It's been a lot of fun, and i've recieved a lot of great feedback, which i'm very thankful for, because it's been enabling me to keep going with a bit of extra direction So thanks to everyone!

    So this will pretty much be final...Perhaps some last minute changes will be added to it...but right now I'm pretty tired of it, in a very good way...


    Again, thanks so much for the feedback, suggestions and critique... I've learnt so much thanks to it!

    cool update meng, I'm not gonna let you off easy though. The composition on June 18th looked better, If you would have kept the same lighting but tightened up the details it would have made it much stronger as opposed to adding more and more lights and details. The thing that did improve by adding more was the two figures in the foreground, and if they're supposed to be adults, they're out of proportion. Utilize your polygonal lasso tool more when you're working on that architecture in the middle ground, it lacks some strength because the buildings feel floppy.

    I think it's just a natural thing that happens when you start spending a certain amount of hours on any painting, it's not always better to add more. I think I did something similar recently, spending too much time adding more and more and more, not always the best move but yeah, it's a cool piece.

    Love those environments Dile, and I mean LOVE them... nothing for me to crit really, other than perhaps work a little more on getting a strong sense of perspective. As others have said, The mid-ground could do with a bit more solidity, and sometimes throwing in a clear suggestion of a vanishing point in the distance can really help. Anyway, congratulations on this one because its excellent.
