Just WOW! You have made amazing progress. Very encouraging to see how far hard work get you. Great job man.
I have a question
Are you learning any art course? Would be nice if you did, you have very good level and four basic concepts that can give your drawing professional artists grow more quickly thanks to his criticisms.
I sorry for my poor english
i really like the 2 portraits o_o are they from no country for old men?
the enviro lacks some sort of story, i mean, it's well painted fsho, but their isnt anything going on.. which is fine for an environment but it'd be funner to have something happening if you know what i mean, so next one have a story to it perhaps?
keep at it man, i lub you
hey man.. awesome sketchbook, heard you're coming here to sweden too.. thats awesome!
enviro study looks nice, perhaps more texture would help bring some of these surfaces more to life : )
looking for freelance work & commissions!
Damn Miles!! I was just lurkin through your sketchbook. Nice dedication on a professional level! and still young! I gotta say tho, the self portrait on pg.105- u look like zac efron lol! but the portrait down below that is VERY nice. I like the process GIF the most. It's like it tells of her beauty story.
Good job man! Godspeed... ka-ching!

OLD SKETCHBOOK: http://conceptart.org/forums/showthr...25#post2543225
Your sketchbook is a huge inspiration man, the new stuff is looking great! Keeep it up!
YOu've got good rendering skills as I've mentioned before. As others have said, effective storytelling is lacking. Do you do sketches before you start? It is very important to get good solid beginnings. It's like adding and subtraction before you get the answer. Remember no amount of rendering is going to save poor composition and design. Plane first. There are some perspective issues that you are having as well with those clouds, rocks, water. I am not convinced of the depth with the one with 2 characters in it. Remember that clouds have volume as well. There is a definite top, bottom, side to side, and front to back. Clouds go over you head. It seems you've just pasted in the background. You want to have that illusion that things are going to back, that there is space. Cloud going up behind the guy reads really weird. Looks more like a volcano blast, but there is no volcano. I do believe that the chick is missing some volume in the back. I feel should be hunched over a bit, add more back. Your life drawing shows that with that post; your not showing it in your illustration. I do believe that adding a backpack and some other little trinkets on the chick would help out with story telling. Maybe, she is drinking water; put a cantine in here hand. Have the guy have a book or map or something, like they are taking a break or something, before they continue adventure. Chest on the guy is reading more straight on than s quarter turn. Copy past move that sucker over a bit to correct that. His right thigh may be a bit short as well. Remember that special attention to detail like that will give more story. You kinda gotta think of everything. What is convincing and what is not. You want to resolve those problems before you go into tightening and rendering. Hope this helps out Miles. Keep up the amazing work. You're doing well kid.
great as always. Keep em coming!
Thanks for all the feedback, especially the critiques about storytelling and planning. Sort of in a rush to post this at the moment as it is getting late. Unfortunately the Psd to that last painting got corrupted, and I got food poisoning which sucks aha, so this week didn't start so well in terms of painting Tried to get back into it today by just doing some screencap studies really focusing on brushstrokes
some shit environment
colors looking great as always, and very oil painterly brushstrokes! nice and big i love 'em!uhuh first ones fucking brilliant
perhaps on your next, try to put some industrialised stuff in your environment? just an idea
keep it up! merry christmas!
Holy crap, you're 17?! you are amazing for your age. I love your painting style and use of color, excellent stuff; and by the looks of that traditional piece, you're not a one trick pony either. Very inspiring; its a kick to the ego for me to be 19 and not nearly this good, haha! I should of been practicing more when I was younger. Let's hope this gets my artistic ass whooped back into shape. I'll be be stalking your sketchbook from here on out~
PLEAASSEEE tell me you have WIP videos or a Livestream of you painting??? I would love to see that!!! i love your brush strokes! do you begin painting with a soft brush then use hard brush?
I hav e been consistantly floored by the quality and consistency of art being shown here. yet i dont think i have posted how amazed i am by it all.
Seriously, Thank you for sharing Miles.
*Runs off to draw*
those screencapture studies are beautiful! I'm loving the brush strokes
As far as the environment, it looks good; adding something to break composition up more or draw the viewer's focus more would add interest.
Keep up the great work, Miles : O
Fantastic Update man, can't wait to see more.
SamC Thanks lovely
ryanoir Thanks man! Yes industrial shit on the waaay
skMOP thank you, brush strokes were the focus of that image
Sapphirelullaby Thank you! Don't think about age though, I just got lucky and was shown this website at a pretty young age
kyubisharingan Hey man, afraid no process videos at the moment, I may make some in a while when I have a more solid process refined, but I'm busy trying to figure out what works for me the best myself at the moment
Liam Harvey thanks man
Untouched24 Thank you, I guess they took about 3 hours, though I can't be certain, I'm on holiday from college at the moment so my life is a time warp aha. When I want to do a more refined study like that, I just sort of accept they will take a while, speed is something I am trying to work on for my work from imagination
Aditya Chauhan thanks
jeremygordon thanks dude, will do
A lot of people seem to want steps, so next time I make a longer painting like that I'll try keeping a few
For now, more focus on environments, tackling those weaknessess blah blah blaaah
Another photo study
I realised I never actually really try with environments, or put any decent time into them, so this is my first attempt at really working on one. It's still not finished so all critique is welcome I still plan on adding something in the light beam as a focal point, possibly a tree or a small figure, as well as a lot more detail in the foreground and more rocks to add depth along the ground. Right now I think I have the mood I wanted pretty well though, and I feel this is a step up from my other attempts at environments. Thanks guys
Oh man, I just love atmosphere in last one. So cold yet givin' hope for the sun to come. Subscribed!
Awesome! I love your works and your improvement, really inspiring.
