    Took me an obscene amount of time to pump out that Jungle/cave concept, would anybody have any tips on vegetation?

    Thx for the reply in my sketchbook. Nice cave youve done, on vegitation, Id say to look up lots of refernece pictures and mix them together. Thats what I would do at least.

    Like envisor said, definitely look at references.. something you might find in them is that vegetation is not so much random scribbles, but there is pattern and form in it, especially repetition! Use that to your advantage and for your composition ~

    I think you got a nice overall mood going but what Naomiful and Envisor have said holds true. Study up on your vegimatation! Grandmaster Feng has a good tutorial on his site for ze veg.

    Alas, no tips on vegetation... but the lighting looks awesome! I love forest-like scenes with that sort of lighting. They're quite peaceful and just draw my eye to the image.

    Thanks for the comments on my Sketchbook, btw. Very appreciated!

    Thanks for stopping by my sb. Like everyone else said get some ref for the vegetation, or anything that you don't know what it looks like. Just use it as a starting point. It will lend credibility to your images. Let's see some more stuff.

    Hey Smokey!
    Looks like a good start on the new piece. The jungle has a nice feel to it.
    Still i think its cropped to an odd size, a little to wide for the subject maybe that's just me.
    Keep on painting, use reference and dig out those crazy ideas in your head.
    Cheers!

    That sting ray piece is kick ass! Id go even darker on the stingray shape, but thats IMO.

    love that tree line piece where you said " not my brushes"
    Remember man, its not the brush its the hand behind the brush.

    I dont see any anatomy studies, are you specializing on enviros?

    Thanks for the tips on my sketchbook!

    Neways, nice going. I'm new to the tablet drawing thing too. Perhaps we can learn together, swapping newly found tips etc. Are you just using photoshop at the mo?

    Thanks, I'd love to swap tips, do you have msn or another instant messenger? (Use Pm, so much safer)

    Thank you, I realise I haven't updated in quite a while. I was trying to make a leap of some kind before I embarressed myself further, but what the hell.

    Updates! (I`ll try to spend some time on something one day, I promise )

    Thanks for the comment on my SB. Your environments are really promising. Using the tablet takes some getting used to, doesn´t it?

    I like the stingray, but my favorite is the jungle. Have you played around with creating a further away glen to give it some more depth?

    Takes more getting used to more than I could ever realise, damn things!

    I thought about it, I`ll try that next!

    Generic envrioments, here we go.
