    Thanks , Delmar.
    I increase the contrast in Photoshop, but I try to keep as many grey levels, as possible.


    Here after a long pause some sketches and photoshopped pics:

    At the moment I try to improve my Environment painting, but something is wrong with it. I just dont know what , so comments and crits are very welcome so I can become better.

    thx

    The evil Troll arrrgh, i love guns

    Nice work, your paintings are amazing!
    I don't know if i'm qualified to give advice, but when you draw with pencil if you start with very light lines, then when you are happy with the shape top it off with some smooth defined lines, your sketches will be much cleaner.

    Keep it up! oh and thanks for comenting in my thread

    Hey Troll, thanks for dropping by and giving me your encouragement! Don't think there's anything I can say that you can learn from haha, but just want to tell you still that your paintings are very nice and to keep up the good work!

    I say, use more black. Not entirely in that kind of meaning, but don't be afraid of going through the rogh and sharp contrast when dealing with light, no matter the material on the thing you're drawing. A really dark shadow on the back of a metal helm will help you to relate of a really dark shadow on a filth grey/brown shirt.

    Keep going

    great environments! especially this one has a great mood:


    and small tip: take some more time for your pencil sketches. they look all a bit rough. just spend some more time on your hatchings...there is no need to hurry

    That painterly style seems to suit you well. The landscapes look good. If you would train your pencils further I think it would show on the paintings also. Good work.

    woooooooow I like your Sb dude!!
    Really great stuff in here, the military stuff owns.
    What about some girls *gg*

    My main critics are your linequality, still to messy and the values.
    I think you can improve alot on them.

    Keep at it

    thanks for visiting my sb!

    damn! that astronaut and SP are fantastic! not much to say other than that... maybe try tightening up your digital stuff a little bit more, and not just always leaving it sketchy.

    cheers

    Hey Troll! Nice SB. Though I think you should work more on your line and drawing, your environments are very, very interesting, you achieve a good sense of feeling in most of them. I like specially the last one (broken ships and stuff). Keep it up!

    Thanks, folks !
    Quite some time has passed since the last update. I cant really say I was too busy to post, just did not have a decent amount of pics worth showing. I feel that I improved , but still have to work on my execution as some of you said, above all on my environments. I hope I stop being that lazy bum and will finally become a part of this community.
    Enough blabla, here is some stuff, enjoy!
