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.
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.
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!

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.
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.
