House Hatke, thanks for stoping by and your kind words I am always looking for critics!! You are absolutely right about my human figures and anatomy in general...something i should practice much more.

Lovely sketchbook . I really like your environments in particular - they have great atmosphere, and I think you use colour really well. I especially like the ones you posted at the top of this page!
Please drop by my sketchbook and help me improve!
very cool enviro thumbs
your environmental paintings are awesome!
Success consists of going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm.
Don't aim for success if you want it; just do what you love and believe in, and it will come naturally.
Awesome sketch book :-)

Your environments are splendid!
They have a lovely luminous quality to them and there a lot of good compositions here, too.
Sometimes the values are a little out of whack.(too much contrast in some areas, mushy in others)
Colorwise you could be a little more daring because most of the stuff here is pretty monochrome and muted. Try to incorporate a bigger gradient from saturated to unsaturated colors for more drama!
Keep up the good work!
ANtY93, hahaha, thanks mate =)
MeteorCat, huh, i can try to explain it I usually start most of my stuff in greysale, helps me to focus on composition and values. At the start i just put some random, huge shapes on the canvas, no matter if i have a good idea how the final image should look alike or not, i just dont like to sit in front of a white canvas and it often causes some happy accidents When i feel comfortable with the values and basic composition i introduce some colors, mostly with different blending modes and adjustment tools (overlay, color, softlight, color balance...). From there on its just refinig and drawing until i feel i am done with it
But it always depends on the sbject, sometimes i do a very refined greyscale drawing before i add color and sometines i use color very early...
I usually try to force myself to use a lot of references as often as possible, although i didnt use any for the last sketches... But i think my stuff turns out more believable if i work with references rather than from imagination.
When it comes to my references i prefer photos. Some time ago i often used other artists work as reference too, but i think you can get much more out of a photo. A drawn picture always is an interpretation of something and you ll never find as much information in it like in a photo, hope you know what i mean and it helps you a bit
Xelar, first of all, thank you mate Colors are really something i often feel very uncomfortable with, definitely need to practice this more to get some more variety and better color schemes.
kidult, thank you!
Some random stuff from yesterday...
Yo Mhugo!!! Great updates man! Realy love the newest stuff, especially those character designs. Normally i would say that enviros were more your thing, but these latest characters prove me wrong! Great improvement man!!
