Some color theory would help keep your environments a bit more in control. In general most of your full compositions seem a little overly saturated.
Cheers for the comments jedininjaman, the saturation levels is something ill have to keep an eye on.
Here is a pepper and banana still life, a study from a photo of a bridge. The last three are one hour speed paints. The one hour speedpaints are something i am working on doing every day at the moment. I am trying to work on getting a pic to a sketch phase quickly. I sometimes fanny about with pics for ages and not make any progress.

couple of pics today, a sci fi f1 race thing, and an orc
here is a snowy city photo study, and an environment from imagination
I have been away from home for a few weeks and haven;t had access to photoshop, so done some pencil drawings. The are mostly studies, a self portrait, bargue plate, and anatomy stuff. Ill be glad to get back to photoshop
Back to ps. Here is a quick study of the needy bird from lord of the rings, and a kind of space marine inspired pic
Here is a couple of new pics and a sucky Sargent copy
some mutant characters for fun. I did them with the main types of mmorpg characters in mind ie, the girl is a mezzer, the hovering guy a wizard, big guy a tank and the guy with the big arm dps. Its a little inspired by the upcoming sectet worls mmorpg set in the modern world

Here is a couple of pics and a Beksinski inspired painting
Here is a random sketch, a photo study and a couple of environments. Its been a bit of a struggle to concentrate, my wisdom teeth are coming through and feel like they are growing into my brain.
I'm not sure if the proportions make this dude look slightly dwarf like now
little cowboy dude
Inspired by making bedroom forts out of bed sheets as a kid
Im not sure yet if the portrait sucks. I am not good with inventing faces when they fill the canvas. I feel like i can construct them better when they are attached to a body and are smaller. When they fill the canvas sometimes i mess up construction and end up with a too big nose or eyes mis aligned. Crits would be appreciated on that one

The girl and the robot are for this weeks chow
Hello there! You`ve got some good stuff going on here. I think you worked out the environment with the train very well, I like the greens and clearish blues you used. it creates a dreamy feeling for me. You also succeeded very well with making one warm and a cooler painting. Your other environments are also pretty cool ideas, however I think they would be much more convincing if you took it a little step further with contrasts, elements and eventually details. (a problem im struggling with as well).
Overall nice varying sb mate! keep it up!
If you are proud of what you did yesterday,
you haven`t done today
