The imaginary portrait and those still lifes are nice man!

I like girl in post 179, though there is a differences in the eye level and eyelids closed differently. But i like how you can already do quite abstract and fast painting, but very definitive.
Also an advice - try to do still lifes faster. I mean spend about hour-two and then stop. First of all, by putting yourself in such limits you'll be able to paint fasterm and the second - you'll gain ability to analize what you see faster, and when that happens - you'll understand light\shadow and will be able to render "from the head" with a good quality level.
@ oren90: Wow dude alot of crit, me like
yeah you are right i might have gone a bit overboard with the smudge, havent really used it before so im just playing around figuring out how to use it best.
Soft edges: already on it
yeah her shoulders are slanting rather alot, and those goddamm eyes
thanks for the crit man it´l help alot
@ Eddieee: thanks alot
@ Trutze: Thanks im glad you like them
well apparently the are for salt and pepper never been used for that though :/
@ Seraph Fawkes: hehe yeah oren90 mentioned that aswell seems i messed those eyes up good and well
Lol now im really liking you most people say i should slow down and finish things up, but yeah i agree with you on the good points of speed painting from life and studies in general
thanks for stopping by.
Started doing timed studies again
Envio from head
1hour 30 min
from life 30 min
from life 20 min
aaaand another from life between 15-20 min
great stuff man liked the enviro a lot and the pine apple too, one thing to say is that you need to do a study without regarding the time but the compeltion of the study, your quick ones are already quite good and you handle them well, but your finished work need more attention, get out of your comfort zone and break the routine of only doing quick studies, hope this helps
I like that top enviro, great atmosphere. Good to see personal work, also have to train your imagination. But I have to agree with Oren90, it would be really great seeing some more finished personal images not just speedpaints, they are really good already
Ditto what Oren and jskotte said. The pineapple does look pretty awesome! (I'm having a bit of difficulty figuring out what the first still life is though! )
You consistently make me feel like a lazy bum That's a good thing! Keep it up mat.
If it's truly 15-20 minutes, than it's a good work mate. Enviro looks strange... Probably not shaped out well. When you doing some straitgh structures hold down shift button. Also, if you looking out for an idea try to play with Alchemy programm - I bet it will boost your imagination )
@ oren90: thanks oren
@ jskotte: thanks a lot
@ Pixie Trick: thanks and yeah the first still was a bit heavy on the texture
@ Seraph Fawkes: thanks man already tried alchemy out, im not sure how much i like it though
okay it´s been a while since i updated
but here is some studies I managed to thow down and yeah i know they aren´t completly finished im working on it.
rest is form life.
this one came out worse the more i worked on it
Nice man, I really like the lighting in the boat piece. Good work!
Btw, why not - some stars - you deserved it!

I like this top one a lot, colors and atmosphere are so good. The best still life is the top one, great reflection.
Hi there DK sketch.
This is first time i've seen your sketch book. You've made amazing process! It's cool to see how much studies you've done and how enormously they've helped you. It's very inspiring. Now I feel I also have to start making more still life studies. At the first glimps can't find anything to crit. Just keep it up!

Damn man, so good so fast I would maybe suggest steering away from using Algenpflegers stuff as reference but to be honest you seem to be doing that anyway Your colour stuff is just crazy man I love the really saturated tones some really lovely pieces do you use different blending modes like overlay ect much?
Keep it up man!
@ Seraph Fawkes: wuhuuu stars thx man. Glad you like the boat piece, im gonna start doing more from imagination now
@ alexson: hehe nice to see you are still going on strong alex
@ Vatsel: thx man
@ jskotte: thanks glad you like it. I actually ended up dislikeing that still i thought the reflections came out a bit to strong :/
@ Myllys: In that case welcome to Myllys . thanks a lot, and yeah just get down and dirty with some still´s
@ Fetsch: thanks, glad you like them
@ Gthm/death: thanks a lot man, glad you gain inspiration from it
@ Architaylor: thanks man, and yeah I use overlay, but as a brush rather than the layers. I always work on one layer
I only use the overlay brush to make fixups in the end though, so you have a good eye to spot it
@ Pixie Trick: thanks alot pixie, im trying to get the still´s to look more finished so i guess it´s working out
glad you like the boat piece
okay update time gonna start having some more time on my hands now so expect more regular updates
and some chili
and nectarine again though this one is a bit less ripe
youve got a nice style, i love those tiny strokes, they give a lot of texture. if i look at your "doodle thing"-portrait, i think you should study some heads and stuff. the face looks good, but it doesnt connect well with the head......
Awesome studies. You really have a sense of color, dude. Great environments too.
Hey DK sketch thanks for regular visits on my sb http://attachments.conceptart.org/fo...hmentid=988230 - I dig that, some really nice atmospheric values and light, awesome
-Sketchbook - Comment and crit for a cookie.
Awesome updates man. Nice still lifes, and that boat is looking sweet.
Great start on that new character. But the angle on the head and the jawline looks slightly off...
We should do some OC-painting some day.
