Huey Yeng, i dont know if its a good thing because ppl tend to ignore it then and label it as fake or something. But i try to post videos and process steps to convince of my process. Usually my images dont get much response atleast not in comments. I also noticed this comment and counter comment behavior, that some people also comment on threads expecting to be replied otherwise they dont. But my general take on it is if there is no question for me to answer posted for me then i dont really need to respond. I have seen loooong posts where all you see is individual thanks and nothing much related to the post.
thanks for stopping by guys, appreciate it!

great sketchbook u got here,i like ur tehnique and the fact that u take ur time to let the image unfold;1 crit would be that sometimes becos of the brushwork its abit to crowded and missleading the eye ,or maybe tahts ur intention...only question i would have is related to color...anything happening in ur mind when ur choosing it or just playing it by ear?
and got to agree on what you say about ppl replying and if u dont reply back to their thread or to their post ,they will never do so again lol,its sometimes drustrating for the inner ego which im sure we all get sometimes but its good so we concentrate on what we do,and think of our artwork rather then on what others ...
Usually when i work on a piece i always try to read and balance the colors to find the right ones. It takes a couple tries before it gets there and feels comfortable with the other colors. Spending too much time on a piece could distract your sense and make you feel comfortable with a value that in retrospect will look wrong. That is kind of my issue with the texturework i do. When i finish a piece it feels ok, and the day after it just feels overwhelming so i can relate o your comment about it.
these are the type of comments i like to respond to individually ;P
Looking good man. Cheers for the speedpaint process shots.
Just a small question... when do you start putting in textures in your work? Do you leave it till the end to detail it up or would you use it throughout the process?
SamsonsReaper, I know how you feel when people either ignore it or just label it fake. Often folks who just draw for fun feel intimidated if they know someone of similar age to them can produce fantastic artwork through sheer determination and hard work.
Too bad it is easier to bash someone than channeling such hate spirit to something productive that is to keep improving ourself.
I did download your brushpack and your nature brush is really awesome. It can help speed up the repetitive pattern found in nature and that's why like I said previously at first glance it might be mistaken as photo only to find out it is a painting.
For the last pic, I think the shadow is quite warm compared to the surrounding.
You make it look so easy. I love your use of light.
Holland you might like this post then :p
Bendragon: textures doesnt haveto be put on in the end, but usually it is for me. I do sometimes like to play with ambient light in the end.
Huey Yeng: thanks! yeah sometimes some threads are more of a popularity thread rather then being a thread of additive comments to aspiring good artists, i have seen talented ppl with awesome posts getting very little comments/attention, and its kind of sad because i think hard work and ambition does sometime need little push for the artist to keep going.
I watch u in Deviant art, YOUR WORKS ARE GREAT!
really like the last one
Work hard, have FUN!
