those medieval ones are very awesome. Nice gestures too.
Very cool stuff, love those warm colors in the hunter girl pic.
Like someone stated earlier, can you please talk about the brushstroke economy,and if you can share some info(anything) on how you may achieve this results? I think there was a tutorial you made a while back on brush economy but I haven't had any luck finding it. It would be great if you can possibly post up something on that technique? Thanks!
Amazing brushes.I don't know how many hours I've spent tweaking photoshop brushes to make them look like oil & pastel, but you did it just perfect.I hope there won't be too many cloners of your style, would like to see it fresh and unique each time...
Beautifully done, as always... your stuff always manages to look sooo effortless. Like virtually the rest of this website, inspires me and kick my ass everytime!! =) Thanks for that! Alritey.... time to go back to drawing and painting like a mad nutter.
Very nice stuff. I' m very jealous of your courage to use colour. I cant focus yet on colours of the scene and its contrast - that's why I prefer begining work from B&W sketch and then colorizing. Mostly the result is monochromatic. It is just a matter of expirience? Could you look at my stuff and give me some hints how to focus on both contrast and colours?

Mr. Jones, you rock sir! The girl leaning on the tree is amazing, Frazetta caliber.
Hard work beats talent when talent doesn't work hard.
Jamie i study every pic you do you make it look so easy. But it is not.
I usually don't comment on ye big boys how many times to you need to hear you rock.
But you rock.
How do you make your pics so unfinishe so rough and yet totally finished and awesome. With big broad loose strokes implying so much detail. Sorry i probably not making sense .When i try it just looks like unfinished scribble
Now tell me the secret.

Hi again Jamie. More great work from you. As many has asked before; do you have any plans, or have allready done any, on making a vidoe tutorial? I would really love to see how your workflow is.
By the way. Been tasting your brushes. Some really great one in there. Some have gotten a place in my own daily brush set
loving all you post here. really inspirational to look through this sketchbook and see your though process as well as information you shared in the last post.
beautiful work! always appreciative of hard working artists. cheers!
The digital stuff actually looked traditional. Excellent use of color and subtlety.
Click the links, please! There's free booze, really.
Thank you sooo much for the inspiration!
Which is what I believe the standard response to something like that would be.
And....wow. WOWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW I think my eyeballs just exploded from extreme visual overload of AWESOMENESS
Please, please, oh PLEASE release an artbook! That would be like fifteen Christmas presents wrapped up into one.
I like the figure drawings, also the pencil portrait! Most of your digital paintings telling stories like Frazetta book covers! If some of them were movie posters, I would get curious and I would want to see the movies! Thanks for sharing! Keep on posting this great stuff, please!

Thanks so much for the replies!
Huey Yeng: I don't work from a set palette but I can't help but reach for the same colors on a regular basis. Still, I make it a goal to work with different colors than what I've used before. Looks like my post tonight has a purple theme.
Kvick: Other than figure drawing I'm doing gouache landscape sketches. I've found it really helpful/humiliating. If you're finding a shortage of interesting subjects, that might not be such a bad thing. I figure the interest comes from the artist, not the subject matter
lamyunaddict: I think the key is in knowing what you're simplifying. I get caught up in a lot of phony brush kung-fu...but real brush economy is a product of drawing skills and knowledge of form.
Barnik: From glancing at your sketchbook, I think your knowledge of color is just fine. I'd say keep it up with your value studies, and color will almost work itself out. Painting from life might help your color sense too.
The drawings are from life, the knights are for fun, and the dragon rider is for MTG:

...gggrrreeeee8,9,10,...... work man......come on buddy... pls well come on my stuff n give your awesome....tips to me..... coollleeesstttt...............one...!
Amazing work Jaime.
Your probably one of my favorite working artists at the moment, and its a joy every time you post!
I love how your use of colours and light are so well put together. You picked the perfect colours for the shadowed versions of the colour, so you can clearly tell that what colour all those banners and pieces of cloth really are.
Where did you learn most of your painting techniques? It would appear that it all comes from traditional painting,? since that painterly feeling is so evident in your work.
I know you might be busy, but any advice you can offer me on my work in my sketchbook would be hugely appreciated.
Thanks for posting, huge inspiration boost!
