Wow, your use of colour is really nice. Not to mention the brushstrokes! More!
Really great work here GPozzo! Loving the landscape in particular. The graphic bold strokes and the simple figures really remind me of the work of Tom Scholes.
The only critique that comes to mind is I'd watch out for the likes of the reflections of the grass in the knight/armour painting from your imagination, at the moment it's identical to the grass and blends in too easily (unless he's a stealth knight, in which case you've painted it perfectly :p).
Anyway, keep up the great work! I look forward to coming back to visit this sketchbook in future.
Shad-: Thanks man!
Aquaticdog: Thanks, here have some more
MacTire: thanks for stopping by!
So the thing with the knight... what do you say? maybe painting with a darker green, no? thanks again!
Umbravita: Thanks for the critic, will have that in mind next time
Did a color study with greens, used the same color palette on the second one
a bit lazy but fun to do
had fun with alchemy:
More, a bit difficult to understand but i don't know how to clean it even more... that thing looks (at least to me, do you even know what is that?) like a donkey more than a horse, damn it

Love your sketchbook man! my first initial 3 second responce to your last post was "fantastic" than I read your post and you mentioned that was a horse in front of the guy, did not catch the horse but the man and the trees are really loose and lovely...horses do all sorts of wonderfull gestures tilting there heads up to the sky swaying far to the side, dropping the down low to the ground. some steam comming out of his nose would help as well considering the weather. Cheers mate! keep trucking
Sean McClain: Thanks for the kind comment! and thanks for the crit too, I'll see what to do with the horse later, cheers man!
so, being a bit slow... only sketches, out of my comfort zone, but fun... the last one is just a doodle, product of me remembering wind waker:
Thanks for your comment. I see you're partial to F22s as well
Those planes and the cloud studies on page 1 are awesome. You have a great eye for colour. I love this horned creature too.
Kvetch: Sure man no problem! thanks for the comment and i will see what to do with the horned creature, should be fun
I've been a bit slow these days because i've been giving more time to music, practicing the guitar and just starting with the keyboard, so not to much to give to you guys but anyways, here is some:
hey there! great progress but I think that you should try and push your studies a bit further as opposed to just using big blocked brushes that you obviously love
I feel that it's hindering you in getting the most out of your studies, for example the metal study, using that kind of textured brush doesn't really accurately depict the smooth reflective surface of metal.
Try using some different brushes and go more detailed with your studies to get more out of them
anyways, keep it up!
Duplicitious: hey! you are definitely right in that one, sometimes (most of the times) i feel very lazy to do studies, this only happens when i'm doing studies, is just a bad habit of mine.
In the other hand i eager to paint my stuff from imagination, doing both studies and my own paintings only with that damn brush (wich i do love and i don't know why) i should try using different brushes from now on, that will be hard to do, anyways thanks for the crit
Nothing much, here are some studies of the savannah landscape:
What about some Radiohead? it wasn't meant to be finished

Keep plugging away. By the time you're as old as me you'll be crazy good :o
Still liking that creature, he's somewhere between shadow of the colossus and wind waker art styles.
Let me guess Shado of the Colossus inspired sketches?! Either way they're great. You're conveying a great sense of atmosphere with these imagination pieces.
As for my previous armour comment, looking back I'd say he colour probably are right, it's just that there would be other colours within each plate forming borders and preventing what is actually a reflection of a landscape from somehow merging into the landscape. Try to think about what colours the edges of each plate are reflecting and use those to form "outlines" to break up the mass.
Brushwork has really come along niceley too, Keep up the great work!
your studies look great!
The giant monsters are cool too, but I think you should try and draw or paint some of the detail that would be on the harness/armor pieces. They look very striking in all black, but they also don't help to build the form, which they could do really well.
Keep up the good work!
Great job! moooore colours, more.... play with it, experiment (you know )
Kvetch: thanks, the creature was somehow inspired by Shadow of the Colossus, thanks for the comment!
Choob: Thanks man, I am sure i will
MacTire: Yep, more or less, you see when i finished the first experimentation with alchemy, wich is the first one on post #125 i got inspired to make more, maybe a giant with those white eyes, then SotC art style came to mind and here we are...
and thanks for the crit on the armor, its clear now, i'll have it in mind next time, cheers man
Obstfelder: Thanks! i just did a repaint of the creature, since i saw your post, and i also felt that i didn't make it justice with the first colored version, but i really didn't know what to do with the armor so here is what i came up with:
blu01: hey! long time i don't see your thread updated in the forums, whats up!?
anyways i actually had the idea to experiment some more with colors, here:
Thanks for stopping by!
cgaddict: Thanks!, i sure will
Thank you guys for the feedback, Not much (School stuff) anyways, i wanted to experiment even more with colors, as i said before, and did a repaint of the giant creature:

You are right. I've been busy with school, but the summer holidays have just arrived, so I really have to make some super awesome art (I admire your forum activity, keep it up!)
blu01: I'll keep an eye for your updates then
Not much.. again, decided to make studies more often, so you will probably see lots of them.. or not. im tired...
Hey man, those enviro studies are looking great. Especially the second one with the half-shadow, the light feels really convincing.
Kvetch: thanks man
cgaddict: Thanks for the kind comments man, i really appreciate them, and thanks for the crit, values, got it, i'll try and work on them, cheers man!
kevin: Thanks mate!
soo... did some torso studies on paper, after finishing those i didn't have something in mind to paint so i decided to do some torsos from imagination on digital, then i did more studies, a ballerina (dont know if i should take it as study, i just liked the image a lot) and a red rock (wanted to play with the colors of that environment, deserts, canyons,etc)
told you, lots of studies:
