Cool new landscape man, I love that bit of brown still showing through in the clouds. I think you could get away with bringing more of that blue into the ground. You're working up a really nice series here!
alannn, nice new paints! i really like the composition of the citypaint - a bit cut off, like a snapshot which i think is cool in a painting. i like the last one but i miss a bit of focus or something i think. the stylo on all of these is working really good though and yes i totally agree it is/will be really cool as a series.
Hey Alan these paints are looking great!
Andy- Thanks for the awesome crits bro, always appreciated
tensai- Lok, thanks so much bro, thanks for your crits/comments too.
elihanselman- Eli, thanks a lot bro.
Man, I feel like I haven't been here forever.
Ok, a WIP of something new I'm trying, blowing up a sketch into another painting that can stand on it's own. It's 6ftx8ft, and the original sketch is about 4x6 inches.
Grandmassa Mr. Spect - Thanks dude, welcome to the boards.
New one/ update
Oh sick man, I love that you're going huge with that painting. Damn, that really makes me want to paint big again too. It's lookin very cool.
You're really nailing the cars and mid-ground stuff on this newest one. Very gestural but spot on. I like the giant area of white too, bold stuff man.
great use of color. I can't believe how many pages of art everyone on this website seems to have. Geeez, it's so intimidating.
Andy P - Thanks buddy, your comments are always appreciated! I hope you paint big again, I want to see how you approach it.
AnthonyFoti - Thanks a lot!

Chromosome- Lol, Thank you, it's pretty much finished, but if you have suggestions shoot away. Thanks for looking.
A couple more re-worked ones
Another one, 3 generations c&c always welcomed
i like the last three paintings a lot, but the last one especially. it's got a whole new vibe. they look like books and like buildings at the same time... you should add some people (just kidding, hehe).
with this one i think the composition is not working too well for me. i'm not sure why but i think the skewed building on the left pulls my eye out too much or something. or maybe i'm expecting some detail on the roof.
i like this one a lot as well, very nice colours and love the way you painted the buildings. great to see what you're up to man.
this is konstantin, remember me? the figure sessions in art/not terminal gallery in seattle. thanks for introducing me to this site. i joined just recently.
i have been visiting your sketchbook thread ever since i learned about this site. your work now is even more fine art than it used to. it is exciting.
i like the "3 generations" (http://www.conceptart.org/forums/att...&d=1190389268). it has something that reminds me of malevich's art. you know, russian avant garde. it could be developed further i think.
tensai - Hey Lok, thanks so much for the thorough critiques all the time, it's really helpful. I actually thought about adding a figure to the last one, but I'm trying to get the buildings themselves to have their own personalities, especially in that one.
akonsu- konstantin, hey dude! How are you, great to see you posting here.
Can't say I know malevich's work very well, I'll look for it, thanks for the tip.

i really like seeingsome of your delicious palette knife work again. i will update some stuff soon but have to gather up and scan some of the stuff that i did. keep on rocking it bro.
mmmm, palette knife, so yummy, almost as yummy as my cheesecake, .
i wish there was more colors showing value difference within the skull. I almost like the whip more on the last update. I think with the skull there are to many light competing light sources on the skull. I think if you had a few isolated strong areas, the skull would pop more. I know you know this but just reminding you. Thats all. Keep us fed Bojee.
tensai- Thanks again bro, I knew you were kidding.
Darktwin- Thanks for the critique bro, I was working throughout the day on that one so that might have something to do with the conflicting lighting. The values being closer together doesn't as much, but I definitely know what you're are talking about. I'm still going to work on it so I'll post again. Thanks for taking the time bro. Keep up the great drawing you've been doing.
MeTaL-Mike - Thanks dude.
Another update, still working on it. Any of you guys go back into old work?? Excuse the crummy photo, the color's doing funky stuff on the bottom right.
Hey just wanted to drop by and say that I really like your painting style. Normally i dont like really vivid colors but you use them really effectively and have opened my eyes.
I like how the line work is still retained in this one, i hope you plan on keeping them.
Kresh- Thanks for looking.
A new one
Whoa dude, this new one is one of your best! I freaking love that girl, awesome shapes! Her forearm seems a tad skinny and I think the red in her elbow might pop a bit too much in comparison to the otherwise cool palette, but those aren't big crits. Awesome piece dude. Do you plan on tightening up any of the background? cause I don't think you really need to.
Andy P- Thanks Andy, been workin hard to up the level a little bit, glad you think some of its working.
Small post New Website
Don't know if you guys know about this one. Been tryin to promote the work, I've got a Myspace portfolio page and a artblog, if you guys know of other sites worth looking into please let me know.

love that 'day at the office' gouache you put up on that site. but why dont you put up a small private site as well? it's so easy nowadays.. anyway - cool progress on that last painting. i'll update sometime soon. was away on a small holiday to seoul
tensai- Thanks for looking bro, don't have the skills yet to do my own website. Don't really have time right now either. But if you say it can be done, I'll get on it. I haven't peeked at what you posted yet but I'm sure it's tatsy.
bhanu- Thanks, yeah I'm kinda going the fine art route, so painting big's kinda the thing to do. Plus it's so damn fun.
A couple more

A gouache version of this one
hey man - i think the colours came out better in the gouache version. i prefer lighting on the side buildings and girl too in this one. but the oil has a very nice centre especially the bus etc.
is your palette different with the respective mediums?
size throws you off on the web though. i'm comparing them here 1 on 1 but for all i know the gouache is a thumbnail and the oil one of those badass giants you make every now and then.
cheers for sharing
