sweet stuff here! keep rocking and thank you for your commets
924 rocks. It's been ages since I've checked this book out and you are getting so fucking good.
I like your proportions on your alpha male body types. A lot of interesting chow entries and still life paintings.
Make a sketchbook happy, feed it a tip to improve!
Your last pieces are nice. I like that one with a girl and a creature.
My portfolio http://lucaspandolfelli.blogspot.com/
Finally finished http://conceptart.org/forums/showthread.php?t=238380
I'm loving that last piece,some things I noticed though:
Watch out for tangents. I think you have one at the end of the sword and her hip/leg. It's one line. Rotating the arm a bit would fix that so the scabbard moves aside. Then it will also be easier to paint it .
I also think her head is too small. Your head is wide (back in space) but the features of the face are small.
I would also give the viewer some more space to breath. Maybe give them some foreground. Sky or some space at the right and left of the painting.
Hope this helps a bit !
kickass studies man.
Note to self - Do not try to invade your house.
Art so far SketchBook
Thanks for you comments omerta, all these stills and studies are lookin real good man I like the sargent one on the last page, theyve certanily developed well looking at all your progress.

Wonderful update bro! Love it, the master study is superb, and that TC is epic! Your best yet I'd say!
Colour studies are sweet as too, nice strokes But I'd still say to watch your edges, even if its a study
Keep it up Jamie, your leveling up like anything!
Cameli-Thanks dude yeah still trying to find a balence with like rendering stuff out and keeping some stuff up to the viewers imagination.
JailHouseRock2-Hey thanks alot Matt yeah edges must pay attention to that haha. Maybe will have to do some more studies up on edgework stil such mystery to me. Best wishes man!
a la bapsi-Bapsi! Thanks haha I still suck though X3 But your leveling up like crazy aswell! Keep burning those pencils and wacom nibs!
So gona try and do a daily study from photos, life and some old masters. Been getting really burned out working on longer renderd studies and need some refreshment!

Your LST submittion looks great Omerta, I wish you the best of luck in the competition
I wish I could give some constructive criticism, but you're miles ahead of me in skill. I'd really appreciate it if you could pop by my sketchbook though
Just was brooowsing, and wanted to say that I quite like your Demons/armored guys. They all have nice variation, and look chunky and mean.
Forrest_I-Thanks alot man haha if I atleast get a free vid I'd be happy so much information in just on of the massive black downloads. I'll drop by your sketchbook fosho!
Jaunay-thank you ^^ yeah the life studies are helping I think lol. Need to do more of them! Been thinking about moving my desk to the other side of the room so I can study some outdoor stuff. And yeah I'm really trying work as close to an oil painter would but digital. also need to do more oil painting been slacking XD
LadyLooLauren-Yeah demons are way fun to draw have tons of them litterd in my sketchbooks haha kinda cool cause you can just go crazy with the forms and stuff. Thanks for stopping by Lauren
more studies! these ones i really enjoyed kinda felt more going with the flow. I'm really trying to capture as much information with as little strokes as possible.
Some studies i do feel so lifeless and eh when i paint them
~Richard Schmid study. Man cant even get close to what hes able to do with paint. I'm really suprised how flowy and fast this study was dont get that to often where it feels like that.
~Photo study of one of my favorite artists Frank Frazetta. Rest in peace Frank! Hope your living the worlds you dreamed and created up there.
By the way I started a live stream
you can see both of these studies and hear my random music XD
for the Richard Schimid study once I write BRB just skip to the next video cause i dont come back to fast haha
have a good one everybody see you tommorow

Parsakoira-haha thanks dude! lol though it feels like im going in alot of circles all the time. Need to focus more! Been killin it in your sketchbook man
Quigleyer-Yeah trying to work on my brush work. I want to kinda want to have like an abstract realistic style but im failing horribly at it X3 I either render stuff to much out or keep it to loose. Need to find a good balence of both. thanks for stopping by
BAMeyer-Thanks man I had a good time working on it. Though its pretty cliche like the knight is eh a design thats been used a million times. O well hope my voice in my art starts to come out I donno though. So much stuff goes into art ahh its mind bogling lol.
Unlink40-Thanks you have a great sketchbook going yourself man. I'll have to bust out the old water colors and do some more stuff
1986-dang cool name man haha didnt know you could have a name with all numbers O.o but thanks dude means alot.
~Sargent study today not very pleased though. If Sargent saw this he would punch me in the face for butchering it so much X3. His colors and brush work always trip me out.
you paint armour damn good sir. damn good.
What an overwhelming lesson to all artists! Be not afraid of absurdity; do not shrink from the fantastic. Within a dilemma, choose the most unheard-of, the most dangerous, solution. Be brave, be brave! - Isak Dinesen
