Hello Mr. Morfin not seen you about for a while, thanks for your comments in EOW, very kind & encouraging as always.
Hope your are progressing well, now show me the update!
If you delete stuff you don't like from your sketchbook then you & others won't be able to see your progress as it happens. Up to you though at this stage I wouldn't add anything back in cause of what I said, just in future.
Adam, thanks for stopping by, thanks for your comments in regards to not deleting stuff, I just deleted the ones that didn't really show anything
-UPDATE-I just added most of them back in post #6 of page 1.
I have been reading a lot of art books lately, not drawing so much, I also started last week a class called "Traditional / Digital Painting", I will upload a portrait I painted as soon as I'm done, and this weekend I start another class called "Begining Tonal Drawing", I'm sure both will help me a lot, I will be posting my work, the classes are at the Watts Atelier, so far it's been great.
Thanks again Adam.
Here is a concept for the EOW#52 Castle Chariot, first I created the concept from pictures and then I just tried to add some mood on top of it (kind of lazy) but any medium was accepted.

Boobie mountains. hehee
Your environments are real great, but your faces need work. They need more contrast, more recognizable differences between the darks and lights.
Hi! As been said there is a couple of really great perspective drawings in here!
And like Chelseaslater sais, you need to work more on the contrasts in the pictures. and that goes for the architecture too.
To learn the wacom: Just use it every day! And yes there is some really great tutorials for photoshop on the internet. Give them a try!
I gave you 4 stars now and Im sure I will give you 5 in a soon future
28chelseaslater - I promise I will draw more Boobie mountains on my sketchbook!, thanks for your input, my tonal Drawing teacher just recommended me using only two value tones until I understand it better and not get the pieces so muddy, thanks a lot.
motives - Wow, 4 stars, what a nice surprise, thanks for your advice and your kind words, I have to do more tutorials & more tone studies from the masters, thanks a lot.
Here is my preliminary sketch for the EOW #56 "Floating Bazaar", I still don't know what to do with the sky and how to give it depth, I'm going to do some tonal studies.
keep up the life drawings, they will help you greatly. since you are into environments I would check out some gnomon dvd's. Mark Goerner's are pretty good, you would enjoy them.
Thanks for stopping by Anurizm, you are right about the life drawings, I feel much faster and much more confident when I'm drawing now that I've been doing life drawing (this weekend is my last class) I haven't posted them, need to take pictures but I'm very happy with how much I've learned at the Watts Atelier, but you can judge once I post them; and i have to thank specially Lucas Graciano, who showed me step by step how to & what to look for in the reference/figure to be able to see and draw the values until I undestood it, it was like a click, and now I really understand it (let's see if I can draw it), also learned a lot about painting with oils and with the wacom (as much as you can learn in 12 three hour classes), I still don't see the colors very well, but heck there are millions of them, I guess it'll come with practice.
I do own some Gnomon DVDs from Goerner, Feng, Church, Robertson & David Levy, but I didn't go to far on watching them, I wanted to understand first values and atmospheric perspective before watching their great techniques (I'll post Scott's and David's DVD's with their authographs), now I feel confident to learn from them, thanks for the reminder.
I never posted this one, it is my waterfall city for the Environment of the week, but this one is special, David Levy had looked at this sketchbook, later on at the last Gnomon workshop, he explained to me how to create the atmospheric perspective painting over my waterfall city, it was just a five minute paint over it, but it was amazing to me and I really understood it after that, him and Barontieri are awesome and very kind of looking at this sketchbook and my portfolio, they have pushed me into really trying hard to create concept art, you guys are the best and I can't wait to play the game Assassin's Creed (Ubisoft-a have to watch trailer), I take my hat off to you!
