    I`ve gotta hop on the train and give my comments.

    The env`s are great, the lighting is dramatic yet subtle, and it really ties the work together.

    As mentioned before, it would be nice to see some characters.

    very nice sketchbook - and as you know, especially great enviros. it's always challenging and motivating to see some kickass art from back home. where did you study to become media designer?

    all: thx!
    Troll Skelking: The structures are special brushes made out of photos.
    dmitri: Sure, I'm getting your point. I might try it. Now that the weather is fine, I'm in the city almost all the day anyway. Wiesbaden has a nice park to sit down and draw.
    Smokey: I've got tons of recent character sketches waiting in a drawer on my desk to get scanned. I'll do that asap.

    Hanuka: Yeah. I'm still searching for the right people here in Germany to meet and do artsy stuff with. I never met anyone with a sophisticated set of interest and passion in art. Would be nice to find some like-minded folks. Where are you in Germany? Your art looks delicious from what I can see in your sketchbook!

    I didn't study yet. Still hoping to be able to do so in the summer semester 08 at the FH Wiesbaden. Until now, I've finished my Ausbildung in January (Mediengestalter für Digital- und Printmedien, Fachrichtung Mediendesign. What a title)!

    Here's another revised speedy. I like the blood. The rest sucks as usual. More to come. I'll scan those sketches I talked about asap.

    PENCILLLLS ... and some fineliners.

    Alright, here you go. Some of the worthiest sketches from the past month or so. Sorry for the bad quality, I fucked up the scanner presets and kept going with them for an hour or so.

    Heya jabo, awesome to see more traditional media. I'd say keep throwin some more time into your pencils, its good for ya! Good stuff though, keep it up! I like the soldier guy with the blood. Perhaps focus more on showing form.

    Cool stuff here lately! i really like that mask in "pencils10.jpg", the seafood page is really nice as well! and your enviros are always fun to look at, of course.

    you said "ambush_redux.jpg" sucks.. i don't know, i think it gets distracting because of the lightning on the dude, if you squint your eyes to see the overall values, you'll notice that he looks very bumpy and formless. if you would choose the light source and really think about how the light hits him, it would get alot better!

    oh, and the brush strokes in berkey_tribute rocks!

    Ksama: Yeah I'm working on tightening them techniques. I think I've been making some progress after looking deeper into good speedpainter's work. The guys over at Sijun always help to get motivated and to advance.

    notic: Thanks again, Sir. You're right about the soldier though, The values are a big mishmash and there's no form being conveyed. I still have lots of problems getting the light painted the way I want it to look like, especially concerning form, not so much the color of it.

    Here's a new one from this evening. Kinda got carried away with it even though it wasn't a good concept. But hey, that's speedpainting. It's supposed to be fun.

    The last half of the painting process, I listened to the Alien³ soundtrack, which fits perfectly. As I said before on page 1, I love to imagine soundscapes when painting or looking at a painting. You can hear colors, that's pretty cool.

    designboot, thanks.

    Jason, good question. I have no idea. I usually block in the sky first, then I set in some fore/midground elements using the selection tool, working from low pen pressure on the farthest elements and getting more opaque in the foreground. Then I paint over the edges again in sky color to get good shapes.

    After that, I often smudge the sky with a textured brush set to a high amount of spacing, ripping it apart more than actually smudging. I often use radial gradients to overlay with some other hues, setting the mode to Hard Light. You can receive pretty nice glow effects with that mode.

    ---

    Sorry for the lack of updates, life and love has been a bitch lately and I'm barely able to get a clear thought. Haven't sketched much too, although I'm getting back to painting... Here's a new one, about 2 hours of work put into it. Dunno if it was worth the effort. At least it has some (wrong) perspective this time.
