Amazing atmosphere! I particulary like 1,3-5, 7, 12 and 13. Have you got traditional sketches as well?
yup, nice stuff.
those portraits seem to be inspired by linda bergkvist. Nice fleshtones. There are some photorefs? very very nice! especially the first one is very moody!
Very nice work, sometimes very strange and special locations, I also like that atmosphere!
wow, great athmospheric lighting on the environments. the faces need a bit work but they look nice too, anyway. keep up the great work!
my old sketchbook
PHATandy: thank you alot!
Twisted Nail: thankee Yeah, there are a lot of pencil sketches on my desk but I'm too lazy to scan them all. They are just exercises, anyway. If you really want some examples I'll go scanning for you
Cyanid: thanks! Aye, I like Linda's style very much. By the way, the sketches here are all from mind...
ender: thank you very much! You're right. I need to practise figure and face drawing, indeed.
Any ideas for a detailed version?
These pieces are awesome. Love the environment stuff. My favorites are the pieces with light streaming in. Very well done.
Feel free to checkout my work:

mentler: Thanks alot, man! It's always great to hear such praise (especially coming from you!). And thanks for the link you gave me. I'm gonna check it out...
great envornments. the work for 1, 7 and 12 just blow me back. your creatures are interesting, with a good backbone for background. your style has that fast-paced feel to it, which you do well.
if there is a written story to accompany any one of these peices, i would be most interestid to read them.

hott stuff dude. from the first batch, i love 6,8,12 the best. the detail pic of the dude with the gun, the gun doesnt look like its pointing at the girl...might want to fix that if you want to. keep it up dude...lets see some more.
Awesome stuff! You've got incredible mastery over form, color, and lighting. Keep it up! Is this using primarily Photoshop or Painter? I recognized a Photoshop Lens Flare filter in there...
Nice to see a fellow Sijun-painter show up here.
You're environments are pleasing to the eye, good understanding of light.
Great enviro's here. Really like the first one (would love to see more like this) and those with big contrasts of light like the churches (?). There is the odd perspective issue in some, but nothing major.
Cooool, so many comments. You guys are so lovely!
purb36: thanks! you've got sharp eyes, dude. I didn't see that until you mentioned it
Sirio_Brozzi: thanks you! It's funny how each of you guys has their own favourites.
Flaskpost: thank you for the compliment.
Datameister: haha. Finally someone who's discovered the lens flare. And yes, I always use Photoshop 7. Thank you!
buzzz3d: Wheee, buzzz posts in my thread You know, I've always liked your style so it's great to hear from you, bro. Thanks a lot!
bumskee: thank you very much!
WARHEAD: thank you, dude! It's very important to me that you all feel free to point out problems in my pics. I'm here 'cause I wanna get better...
A secret leisure place in my mind. Send me a PM if you wanna order a ticket (just kidding)
...and a kwikee:
I like these. My only CC is that in 011, her mouth seems small. I'm not sure if it just doesn't seem deep or if it is just smaller, but there is something that bugs me about it.
Your environments are beautiful! GOD I wish I knew how to make my own brushes in PS. Way to go on those. I like your interiors with the soft light and some of the larger indoor ones. You have a good handle on how to present space without making it feel overly mathematical. *high five*
I really like your work, dude!
WOOOOOWZERZ.. I cant believe that I missed this thread.. Its like "where did you come from?!"""" Well... everything here is spuer impressive.. I really like the sept.19th purplish character... thats hotness and your enviros.. well.. they speak for themselves..
As far as ideas for a detailed version on the Aug.30th post... You have set up the scene nicely.... My suggestions would be to have the male character facing us.. to the left of the woman... You could have the same action going on with the man with his arm pointing in the direction of the tent but, have the woman in a submissive position.. maybe with her head laying low... As if being scolded (which we assume she is). and although I love where you have the light source coming from.. I think it would make a great impact if you brought the main light coming from behind the statue in the background.. by creating a window there... This would give off a strong omnious look for the male character and then your able to give a beautiful gowing auroa around the woman making her angelic.... but, then again.. everything that ive said would be a ton of work.. so.... you could discard what i said...!!! keep on posting.. you have great works.. im glad I stopped by..
Mainloop- man i must be dyslexic.. cuz i thought you asked how many people are on lsd
Great sense of light.
