i really do suck at enviroments, as you can see....but theres no point avoiding them, so i will give it a go, this isnt finished btw, well i dont think it is.
still working on enviroments, this one went better than my last, if anyone has any tips or thoughts on the best way to produce enviroments, that would be Nice....
update.. i gave it more sky, me likes it this way....
Hi Prophet, From my last vist you put some very good works in your SB! I love this concept
and I demand you : Why don't you finish and refine this pice? I think it will be cool.
let me know your thoughts on this, ive been looking at it for too long.
I wold move one of the monsters closer to the car, to make it more threatning. You could also make the light in the car brighter, to make it more of a focus point. Also some reflection on the car would be nice.
The pink tree creature has character. Look at him struggling there! Nice streem of light on that tree limb, but maybe it makes it less treelike in texture. I think the composition of the piece featuring a lone tree on a bridge could be strengthened if you lower the tree a bit, probably by eliminating part of the bridge.
I like the city enviroment, its got a good design that I think you could work with.
On the recent piece, the composition seems like everything is pointing from the top left corner to the bottom right. Maybe knock down that left mountain and have the right giant come in a bit so it could be more of an "S" shaped composition? Its still a WIP Im guessing, but the ground is a bit flat atm. One last thing: maybe use less of that fog trail or just vary (shapewise) them somewhat - they are looking rather solid and could be clouding too much of the painting.
Looking forward to the result!
Thanks for the advice and comments, i changed a few things, got rid of background for now and worked the design of the car more, plus i put Stripes on the side of the car to make it go Faster!!! ZzzzZooomM!
going down a different path with this, let me know if its worth pursuing?
thats a lot better imo. i'd say either work up the mountains more, or drep them more into the distance and work them less. i would continue them to the left of the image, it looks weird how the last one drops off. imo the cliff-side closest to the view (with the fence on it) could use a nice gradient of shadow moving up from the bottom.
awesome stuff here dude. i found another sketchbook to add to my favorites. i like this sketch: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v7...houtguntex.jpg it reminds me of carlos huante a little bit. very cool stuff though, overall. no crits, just keep them updates comin.
"I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain."

That last version of the supercar is my favourite! Lohan has nice points on those mountains.
I would like to see that map in the bg shine thru a bit in rest of the image, especially there to the right of the car, where it looks kinda empy.
Keep it up man, looks awesome so far!
Try playing with different shapes for some of your forms, maybe grabs some refs of your subject matter and check it out to get a few ideas in your head, things like mountains and trees. Build up a good diverse shape vocabulary so you can have a few things to choose from. Keep it rocking.
hey sorry for these little updates i keep doing but your input has really helped me with this piece...oh and to make it a little less pointless..heres a sketch from my sketchbook to show you that i am working in that also...i just hate my scanner...
just some random sketch, hopefully i will further develop this character.
just another sketch...

a small update.. oh and i forgot to mention i got one of my life class drawings up in a gallery in Manchester..and someone bought it for 100pounds woot? no idea why but it was this one...
Hey looks like your drawings improved! Congratulations on that £100!!!!! Care to split the booty Where do you take your life classes, out of interest? I used to go at a place called Rouge Studios, good place.
But yeah, Improvement! I would add a few darks to define some of the landmarks on your figures. But you cant do that until you actually see it and recognise it. Sculptures is probably a good place to see this.
BLING BLING!!!!!!! how many dollars is that?
for the drawing, try using less lines. i see a lot of lines that don't have to be there, aren't helping describe the form.
the anatomy is in general good but off in areas. i think if you just apply your knowledge of anatomy while your drawing, like ask yourself does that make sense?, and then make adjustments it will help.
kind of scary to think thats hanging in somebodys home haha. congratulations
