    I'm very busy trying to find people that might want to hire me to paint, draw, sculpt.
    Don't really know where to start looking though.
    Well look for places where they have dinos and models, like museums. If you ever come
    to GTA please call me lets hang out and draw.

    Very cool updates, I like all the monsters. You kinda remind me on the old Cinema posters,
    which I could tell you which one, one of my friends in montreal has some of them on his
    wall and thats some how like your style of drawing.

    Satu: thanks! The painting of the boy was a present for my niece.
    She's been married now for 12,5 years, and that's their son.
    He somehow has about the same age as their marriage.
    They were very happy with it

    iven: Actually I might do that. I'll let you know how it turns out.
    Thanks for the comparison to these posters, I think Maybe you could pm me a picture of one of them sometime?

    update on painting stuff.
    Finally got around to finishing this one. Onto the next!
    Referenced btw, still practicing brushwork.

    Well I guess I could work on this some more and improve on it,
    but it's taken ages already and it's time to move on to something new.

    Satu: thanks, glad you like it! *dances*
    Rhubix: thank you too I kind of slap it around too, and my pants are a mess.
    (because of the paint that is) I guess it's a part of painting.
    Haha lol, that is quite an original reason to come around. Nice.

    update: some digital practice on the sketches in post #299
    Thanks for watching. May the force be with you

    I really like the wolf, I recognice its silhouette its a picture from the web. The one who is
    howling to the air, I used the same wolf from the www: http://forums.conceptart.org/showthr...42#post3567642

    Nice stuff here as usual, love it specially the quote !

    kevin_ & iven: thanks guys! And yeah that is a referenced painting
    iven: that quote works for me. I kind of feel like rediscovering myself after a long absence.

    Hey guys, I was hoping to finish those digital things, but traditional work got in the way.
    First up, a butterfly painting for a competition for a cover of a magazine about painting.
    It's kind of bland, mundane, but it was quick and well I didn't dare experiment.

    Next: I started painting outside! So called plein air painting. It was great.
    I plan to finish it at home and use whatever information I got outside as a color and composition reference.
    Then the pictures I took will be more of a texture/details reference.

    Outside? that's crazy talk - won't the day star burn off your pallid artist skin? ... or is that just me...

    So glad winter's finally letting up! hard to draw when your fingers go numb and fall off!

    Have you watched any Bob Ross videos? that guy knows all the sneaky painting tricks.

    Happy sketching

    I cannot upload multiple images apparently.
    It matters not. I've produced mainly shit recently.
    Piles of yellow ochre and burnt umber.
    Fuck I suck at this art thing. I wish I were better but I can't seem to get my head
    wrapped around progress or something. It just seems to go in circles, round and round
    in an endless caroussel of mediocreness. That is my fate. So be it.

    Heyy nice new updates! I don't think your postings are shit, you are being too hard on yourself. I think your oil paintings are becoming better and better every time!
    I think what you should do to make you learn things faster is to do more studies, and especially more life studies. Study different objects and how light reacts to them. That way you will learn both values and colors and you will remember them better than making for example photostudies. Also study more gestures and anatomy, so you can get some dynamic poses to your characters. And try different brushes when painting with Photoshop. Do some experiments, go wild! I think some of your Photostop stuff has some really blurry edges and I think you should use some harder-edged brushes as well. You are having artistic depression about your works and skills right now and it happens to every artist every now and a then. Just try to study a little bit of something every day, even if it's just 30 mins of gestures. I believe in you!

    Satu: thank you Much appreciated. I'll try not to disappoint.
    Yeah I was kind of down when I last posted here. I've been very busy with all kinds of things and it looks
    like my photoshop skills are suffereing because of that: they are still well, crap.
    Hopefully I'll get to improve on them sometime in the near future.
    But I am studying every day so I guess that counts for something.
    I just gotta keep on grinding and one day, I'll emerge from my cave and see the light.

    Update on some photoshop stuff

    .. well maybe later. It seems I can't attach more images.

    I love the traditional paintings but there's a huge gap between your digital and traditional stuff!
    You should try to keep the values under control. Right now the contrast is too high and you use
    too much black. Try to start out with less extreme values from 20-80 and add high and low lights later.

    xelar: I replied earlier but some of my replies have been destroyed by the whole hacker/serverswitch thing.
    I'm glad that's over with. Conceptart is back on track, so we owe it to the site to go mental!

    You're right, my digital work is miles behind my traditional stuff. Then again, I've put way more time in
    traditional, so I guess that I just need to grind some digital stuff for a few weeks to get a hang of the
    fundamentals there. Thanks for the critique and the tip on valueranges: definately going to work on that!

    For now, some traditional stuff however
    Although I did draw only a quarter of the circles, and copy pasted them into full circles.
    Also added some digital coloring and stuff. So .. mixed media I'd say

    dont think too much about digital or traditional if you have a process for traditional paintings just translate that to digital, insted of paper you have layers and instead of pencils you have the brush, as you said its all about the practice but it aint that different i recommend going to www.ctrlpaint.com and look at some videos that man has a knack for explaining things in the most simple and amazing way possible i recommend it highly browse through the video gallery and choose a video that peeks your interest good luck and AMAIZING patterns i do them too but not at that level amazing patience and attention to detail! id love to see you do that but in enviroments and landscapes!

    Rhubix: hey, nice of you to drop by. Those circles weren't too time consuming, since I drew only 1/4 circle on paper.
    I then copy pasted and transformed to make full circle. I had not done these things since, never. Was fun.

    lionheartGFX: Thanks, I did check Ctrlpaint, some great tutorials!
    I do lack a little patience when painting digital stuff, which oddly enough is no problem at all when doing traditional work, time just flies.
    And hey why not: I'll do a landscape/environment with the same insane amount of detail, let's see if you like it

    For now, some more circles..

    amazing designs man i have a thing with gears i just like them oddly enough i lack the patience to do them accurately i love yours BTW specially the flower one, you should study celtic knotwork im doing them and they are really relaxin and with a bit of work they look very good its a good way to warm up before starting your studies, awesome dino-skull too it looks functional which is a good sign that you are understanding what you draw you are well on your way keep it up!
