So, maybe I'm just not getting the correct shape or color etc, because if those are correct it should read as a rock without texture right?
    well you are creating a painting texture since you start painting something, and it involves shape, values etc.. there´s difference between painting a rock and painting a tree obviously. If we are talking about achieve a good realistic approach, it will depend of our level of accuracy or on how many time we spent looking at nature. If we are looking for a stylization, it´s more difficcult imo cause we will have to find the correct brush to achieve the effect we´re looking for... so i wouldn´t talk about textures like something you add in a later stage, but like something you play since the beginning. Using a photo support would be another story
    keep up the good work

    Moonrage: Yeah, the contrasty sky was that way in the reference, so I painted it that way without really noticing. Thanks for seeing that!

    About the portrait/line clarity, I couldn't agree with you more. I'll try harder!

    Ricardo Robles: After reading what you said, I realized that I tend to simplify the shapes so that I can understand them and get them on the page, but never un-simplify them afterwards (if that makes sense). Thus removing the textured appearance-- I think.

    And that goes for most objects... not just rocks.

    Sorry for the lack of updates, I don't have much to show right now. I'll hopefully have more soon.

    CesarNostradamus: I would love to help you out with that, but I'm too busy right now. You can use the penguins I made if you want though!

    Ludic: Ah Cool! Thanks for coming back.

    chuck18mp: Well, yeah. Its ok... I guess.

    I really like the colors in that one too, I'll have to use them again, hehe.

    Really busy, so only one for now. This color/light stuff is maybe kinda sort of starting to make sense. Yay.

    Great stuff! As I scrolled through your sb, I was a bit startled by the jump in quality on page two (due to your three-year absence), and it just keeps getting better. Keep going.
