I love your environments! They're awesome.
And they inspire me. I hope I will learn to paint some day such great environments.
I'm looking forward to see much more from you =)
Wow! Awesome sketchbook! It would be cool to see more pencil work-but the enviros are so damn sweet! Keep posting. I Love the moods and colors you achieve. I am surprised you work from a grayscale start! Thanks for the tut on the first page too. I will try my hand!
Again-keep it up!
dude you got some sweet stuff here! Thanks for sharing
Ah man, your stuff just keeps getting better! Used to seeing it on the EOW's but it is still a pleasure to top by and have a look here. Keep up the great work!

LMK - Thank you! im super glad u like it!
Swordhand - Thanks alot! glad u like it.
Sirkenneth - Thankyou, yeh I will try to have some more pencils in the future, even tho I rarly do any super rendered characters in pencils, I mostly do smaller environment sketches. yeh I sometimes work in greyscale up these days, not as mutch as I used to tho, if I do I prefere to just start with a basic color and work monochromatic until I feel like adding more colors. I will try keep more stuff coming!.
Ricardo Robles - Thank you, im glad u like my stuff!
Yor - Thanks yeh, colors
SnobbyOo - cherrs Thanks!

great work, your environments have so much texture to them is your brushes that create that effect or is it how you use the brush? Also what brush sets do you use to create clouds and various other texture? awesome work though, so keep it up
Man, I still want to watch you paint landscapes some time.
That last fanart is epic! Nice composition, lighting, and sense of scale.
Nice sketchbook. I like that snowy landscape up above. Keep it up.
Dang man...I learned a lot from just looking at your work. Especially tress. I love the art rage studies. I mean they look like real paintings with the light reflecting. O.O I'm hyped and pumped to draw now. thanks man
I'm out to conquer the world equipped with a pencil, digital paint and a Sketchbook
and when I do achieve that goal...I'll conquer the moon too

sanakris Oh thank you for checking my stuff out, yeh trees are hard to paint I would say, but Im glad u could learn something from it!, yeh artrage is fun, its just abit hard too! im too used to the photoshop brushes.
xbrianx Hehe Thanks alot! im glad u enjoyed my sketchbook.
Cacodaemonia Oh yeh Thanks, will try to record something sometime, I have tried alot of recording programs and for some reason they all fail at some point, like not saving the recordings properly, but I will keep looking into it
rattsang Thanks alot, yeh more will come!
Kuidf^! Thanks alot im glad u like them!, yeh for the most parts the textures comes from brushes in the more landscape paintings, but those paintings with alot of pipes, wall textures and such I tend to use alot of photo's, to save some time.
But also and important thing aswell is to use abit of "Unsharp Mask" , its a photoshop filter, it makes everything abit sharper in the picture and that makes texture brushes stand out more, so I tend to use that on almost all my pictures.
As for what brushes I have been using. I have used some of Whit Brachna's brushes, and some of my own, but yeh from this point, all brushes I use are my own, I have been creating alot of them
And yeh I tend to use alot of the standard photoshop chalk and round brushes too because they dont have any textures which is also good, but I think I just lowered the spacing on them to 5%
mariusz Thanks alot!
One more picture.
I should check in here more often, your work is getting better and better like I said before, your enviros have great atmosphere, you sure know how to pick the right colours to create the right mood, top stuff, keep up the good work
Great use of color here and a great "feeling for textures"(your pieces have)!
I most like your green (grass etc), primarily in your first threadpage, where you used a lot of it.
The only and very little critique I had was that at first glance the runway in #39 looked a bit strange. But now it looks good... don't know what the problem was anymore aaaaargh ... couldn't be too distinct. Sorry
Waiting for more
lovely stuff man. The latest entry is tops!!
timer Thanks alot!, yeh abit more saturation could help too I think. you had some great stuff in your sketchbook too! keep it up
aaro_n Cheers thanks alot! Glad u like it
Eiki Thanks alot im glad u like my stuff!, yeh I will try to paint more grass! cuz I love doing it, atleast when its not too close to the viewer.
As for the runway piece, yeh I can understand if it looks odd somehow cuz I feel that too, It might be that the white road lines are not getting big enough towards the viewer, also the road is just cut off, it would help if would hint or show some of the road in the distanse.
Also those rocks next to the road looks abit wierd, their shapes doesnt makes sense , but also the shading and highlights on those rocks are too rushed, some of it doesnt fit the shape very well and it sort of makes it worse.
The man with no name Oh thanks alot!, yeh and I will try to post more pictures so there is a reason to check the sketchbook more often hah, sometimes I dont post mutch at all.
Yeh having some reference while painting can help with colors for the mood, since alot of colors that happens in real life works great together sort of.
