Excellent progress, mate!!!
Thank you ROB!
I haven't done landscapes in a long time, so i thought I'd do a quick paint over of a photo i took at sunshine train station:
Nice work man, keep working on sharpening those lines and giving each painting more clarity. Just what my eyes diagnose - otherwise I can't offer anything valuable in the form of critique.
Keep doing you
Keep it up =)

Graphite drawing skills has been improved drastically from the previous year if you
ask me, and your digital paintings ain’t so much behind neither. The anatomy is
better, you understand shapes better and I believe that you have some very nice
traditional oil paintings. I have a suggestion considering digital paintings, and
that is that you try to do more greyscale studies. The environment thumbs
that you’ve posted on 26th August are looking great, overall I think that you’ve
got to a whole new level with your artistic skills. Good job, keep up with
the motivational battle, and never turn your head away from the sun.
LtPlissken: Many thanks man! I've been a bit lazy lately but i'm trying.
We watched with certain awe and fear as we sailed away from the last outpost, leaving behind those few brave enough to stay,
unafraid of the impending doom, was it cowardly to flee? Still how long before the
enemy reached the coast? My prayers with those that we left behind....
Nice story which goes along with this beautiful painting.
Composition vise, I would let the whole ship to be visible, and
not cut the bottom. Watch the perspective, the tops of those buildings
look a bit awkward considering the rest. Beside these little things,
I think that this one is a marvelous piece.
Awesome progress man. Keep it up!
You may try to use more lasso tool to get a bit less dependent of lines. Just discovered it recently (lol yeah i know, such a discovery.... lasso... ) I think that trying to build something even by spamming more or less random triangles and other simple shapes helps a lot to understand form.
