I really think that third painting is missing something. Maybe if you are lacking ideas, try some PURPLE lightning
Thanks for the comments everyone!
I have a brand new website! Please check it out and let me know what you think! I've had great a great response on it so far, but I'm still open to changing things up if I find it helpful to the overal feel of it
Heres a bunch of stuff.. I can't even explain how much art i've done lately. But anyway, I should let my art in 2-3 months (or so) speak for that, and not those boring words
I usually don't draw horses. Was fun :] will do more. I did some horse studies too..but they are on paper : ( I will make some digital too, just to show how fun it is to draw horses My new guilty pleasure.
I need to simplify shapes more and do more thumbnails..This was a good way to find out how NOT to do it
Rapoza study, very different, very fun
aand some quick stuff, studies speedpaints etc
i got more..but I don't want to clogg the thread really : (
Thanks for looking!

Here is something, not particularly detailed. But perhaps useful to someone out there.... D: These are some of the things I think of when I paint environments and an easy "check list" (even though my rough speedpaint didn't really cut it) to have...kinda

Mjam mjam, delicious art
My environments look so shitty compared to your stuff.
It's awesome how much you improved since we talked (if you remember my old nick: Silwynar)
I would ask you to teach me again, but with this awesome stuff it seems like you're really busy with getting kickass, hehe.
Keep it up dude.
Sooo good ~
I love the fact there's a real sense with your later stuff in this sketchbook of certain lights going on in the artistic brain... the fact you're thinking about all those aspects in that last post is quite astonishing! Your environment designs are pretty cool. If I had to crit anything, I'd say from here on in, you might want to start really thinking about some of the smaller brush strokes you make, and the subconscious way they are reading. An example might be the the highlight on the shield of the guys on horseback in the fantasy piece on this page - likewise the highlight on the statue in the upper right - both marks seem to be made more to be fast that actually thinking about the shape they are describing. With a little more thought for that, you'd definitely be taking your work into that uber-awesome level that you see a lot of the pros have, as your basics are pretty solid at this point.
An inspiring sketchbook, at any rate!
whoa really nice work, the environments with the people in them look really good. Also thanks for the environment steps checklist, I haven't done many yet, but this could be useful for when I get into them.
some stuff from today. Thanks for the Critique zephyri! I really appreciate it (as you know!) I found myself through both these paintings, wanting to put down small, and , when kinda thinking more conciously about it, very harsh, lines or details that didn't really make sense I will keep that close to my concious thoughts and internalize it. Again, thanks for the crit!
digital stuff done on stream
based on previous thumb
This one was a lot of fun... Just saved it... Will work more on it after sleep
i need ref for faces in the close future........ todays assignment (or hands : ] )

Nice updates Dile. I'm really digging the top left sketch of that bunch, but I do like where you took your next illustration to. There's a nice style in there, the way you set down the edges and moves of your brush.
The girl looks a little flat, stuck on the canvas though. Just a thought, if I may share.
Keep up the good work!
Great stuff you got here!!
I didn“t like so much some of your textures, otherwise everything is great!
Keep it up!

Sorry for the lack of replies&updates. I spent all day working on this one yesterday... and woke up to the tips & live paint over of this painting from a very talanted artist who's currently doing work for disney! Which definitely brought a lot of the FUN back into it. I hate licking on my paintings, which was most of what I did yesterday D: Anyways......
now its study time! I also started a bunch of other things yesterday, i\ll post them once i've brushed up on them a bit haha.
Thanks to everyone for their support! I'll get around to return the favor asap.
I know this has been said before but those environments are intense! nice work!
Love the Dom Cobb insert in post #394, good for a chuckle haha
Lovely environments here. I like that you are going about the study in a totally different way from myself, but the sense of form and space is developing regardless... makes me think that there are just SO many ways of arriving at understandings of form and value.
Anyway, its all looking great here, I thought I'd stop by to see how the SB is going and I can see that there's a lot of love from the fellow CA members - grats!
I do have one crit actually, which would be to try to watch out for overly saturated colours in the background. Just using ctrl + U once in a while would add a lot of depth, and slightly changing the colours to add a little blue would suggest a lot of atmospheric perspective. Anyway, its looking great so keep on doing what you're doing!
oh.. and 5 stars
Some stuff, first a pretty crappy I.O.W. Crappy for different reasons, mainly because I lost track between concept and illustration and kept battling between the two. Didn't feel it at all at the end. Anyhow:
Also, head on over and vote! http://www.conceptart.org/forums/sho...d.php?t=245785 Preferbly not at me, I do not deserve it.
Today was non-art day. For exactly 53 days i've put around 12-18 hours into my art. I am trying to catch up for lost time. Anyways, decided "not to paint"... SO I thought i'd play some Quake. Got murdered and violently raped 10 games in a row so I decided it was art day again. So around 11.30'ish I started streaming. Now its 7 AM and this is what I did D:
Picked the top right one to work from.
Thanks to you whom tuned into my stream! Very much appreciated.
