Spind Warrior Castle
Need some guidance, what do I need to improve my tones, lighting, mood?
Should I try any tutorials to learn to paint with the Wacom?
From the line work to the skectch with tones something goes wrong that I can't understand, please let me know what do you recomend me to do, study or practice.
Some more sketches.....

Hi, i think that you should do very basic value studies, try to do some self portraits and still life as a training, that should make better your drawings of perspective, wich you seem to handle quite well, i would recommend you to do that first, are you studying from some books?.
Christian223, Thanks for stopping by & for your advice, you are right, I have done some value studies but just looking at other value studies or geometric figures, I will try with human forms, so I can really understand how the light works against odd surfaces, not only cubes & spheres.
I'm reading some Andrew Lewis, Design First for 3D artists, Rapid Viz (this one is really helping me sketch faster & get rid of my technical drawing, still haven't finish it).

You seem to have a good understanding of perspective in your drawings. Some of your architectural plans look like they're for a business, are they? My suggestions on photoshop and the wacom tablet: just scan in some of your drawings and start doodling to get the hang of it.
Kuraudo, I have fun with perspective, still have some problems with ellipses, alot of times I create really basic volumes in 3d and pick a shot that I like and from there I continue the sketch (after I saw Barionteri work this way in the magazine ImagineFX), so you have a really good perspective base, yes, some of these images are from projects that I design, some of them are built, some of they are just concepts and some of them have changed before been built. I am going to follow your advice and start doodling on some of the drawings I already created, sounds like a very good idea, thanks alot.
Here is another sketch in progress that I will finish in this sketchbook.
It is called NORTH GATEWAY

Another bunch, sorry to include some of the images that are incomplete or not so good, I just want to show what I have been doing these past months so I can get feedback from the exercises I've done, on what my weaknesses are, what am I doing right, what should I practice, read, do to improve my conceptual designs & art.
Thanks for taking your time to watch & read.

Updated sketch for EOW#47 "Rapunzel Tower", I want to add some kind of fog to create depth, I will also add the princess to the front tower soon, maybe I'll try some colors.
Renamed to HYWU KINGDOM.
