The extra light sources are quite dramatic - the colors are workin well in the one at the top of the page. if I had any suggestions for that one it would be to reduce the variety of brush stroke types - there are some broad round types, more hatching, and long strokes which might stop some harmony.
Neat strokes in the most recent painting. for the highlights, you could make them pop even further by altering their hue from the base light color?
Wonderful studies!!The light you are using works perfectly,most of all in post #301,this one is great!!!
well, we made it to the quarterfinals... yeaaaaaaa

man, the render on that robot is great, and some of your environment drawings from early in your sketch book and spot on. cool stuff.
i love your perspective/arhitectural drawings with marker...do you have any tips on creating these?...do ou sketch them out first with pencil and then marker em' up or just dive right in w/ a marker, etc.? any tips on this would be REALLY helpful for me! keep it up..your character progression has also been fantastic!
Oooh great updates!! You're awesome ^^
I'm kinda tired cos I just got home from work so I'll keep it short:
I love the skintone practice on the last post. Remember that on dark skintones the colours are usually a little more saturated than on blank skintones and the highlights much much much bolder.
Oh and I definitely like where this is going, it could use some more contrast colour and value wise but it's really nice ^^
Maybe there'll be a dutch sketchmeet again this vacation
Hey man, those last b/w ones look really nice. You're doing good, i see a lot of improvement over the pages of the sketchbook!
Power is nothing without intelligence.
Saurus: it depends. sometimes, when finding a design, you can start with shaping with marker. then later, you start line drawing on top of that. mostly i dont have a lot of perspective involved when doing this. Other times, i start with line drawing and then 'render' it with marker
NoŽ:thanks marleen, you're too kind shame i wasnt there at hellmouth. i had other stuff next time i will try to make it.
Erik: yeah thanks man, i appreciate it
i decided to go and study ID at TUdelft next year
ooh, and its the first day of my vacation, wippie!!!
wip, half an hour i think
nice going here mate, really cool and quick concepts, I enjoy your fluent brushwork.
Those quick B&W sketches are looking sharp man, kind of reminds me of those chinese ink brushes or whatnot ^^killer work.
I like the high saturation you use but try to add some more colours to your pieces to add some depth and variation.
Keep up the good work man, I am impressed!
Buckster: yes i know. color is my biggest problem at the moment.. but im starting to understand contrasts with saturation.. its also a matter of being realy really suttle with color changes.
some photo refference just for practice
no blenders anymore for me

No crits here but...wow, you improved a ton over a years time! I just started my first SB here and it is no where near as good as yours was starting out. Any suggestions on books? I'm trying to work on my anatomy drawings. Do you know some books that help with landscapes?
improvement for sure, i really like those last few paints. as for skin tones check out the masters man, what they use for skin tones blows the mind! keep it up.
Thanks for the tips. What book did you use for learning anatomy? I went to my local book store and they didn't have much of a selection.
TOOLED!: yeah, i've heard that before. i guess i should check out those masters thanks
_Ruuzi: i learned from loomis and a sarah simblet book.
