An update...this one is a ton of fun. The only way to work.
More rendering. This still has some perspectives issues that I'm going to fix, plus a couple other things, but it's coming along.
I don't normally title things, but liked the idea of suggesting an open ended narrative, one that could be interpreted in a lot of different ways, other than my own.
Oh man I really like these last updates - not checked out this sketchbook before but you're obviously no beginner! Keep on bringing more updates for me to learn from and get inspiration!
Finally did a weekly challenge. And now, the ever so exciting description:
A disregarded and forgotten species of fish, the Uslurper staked it's claim to mostly uninhabited parts of The Great Barrier reef. One of the only members of the sea world that can sustain prosperous life in shark infested waters, the Uslurper evolved accordingly over the millennia, developing sharp teeth, a poisonous outer coating of slime, and fifteen foot, finned tail, for cutting through the water at high speeds. While generally being regarded with similar disdain as it's shark brethren, the Uslurper possesses a temperament similar to that of a dolphin.

This one is great!! Love it
Hey Lunarsis Great job on that cow entry! I really like how you've gotten such a slimy liquid feel to it. I'd change up the description though, just a heads up: The C.o.w topic description apparently called for a Slimy Borneo cave dweller. Now I'm not sure if its mandatory but just to be safe you could switch out the barrier reef and I think you're fine.
Had a look through your sketchbook and you're probably tired of hearing it by now but.. those enviros are awesome! Cool to see you explore so many different styles and techniques throughout the sketchbook.
LtPlissken is totally right!
I needed to take a look on your website for a little more information!
I love your works, and here, I'll give you 5 stars, too. Your environments are some of the greatest I've seen here and you are a pretty friendly and helpful member. I kinda like you for helping me out with informations about environments and the nice other tips =)
Greets and keep it up! Flo
Hi man. Thanks for seeing through my sketchbook and taking time to commenti. Really appreciate it.
I just looked through yours and its awesome. I really like your environments. The one with the shack and the well is one of my favorites. I like your style. Like in those foliage studies. Don't loose it Keep posting!

Whoa! That's a kick-ass sketchbook! Thank's for droping by btw.
Holland - Glad your digging those updates. I haven't done many interiors or space scenes for that matter, so it's pretty cool to here that. cheers!
ThomasM - No, you've been here! And I appreciate the return visit my friend. Your work is always a treat to look at as well.
Red123456 - I spend a lot of time picking my palettes, so it's great to hear that. Thanks you sir.
Wasabi89 - Thanks! Happy your into it!
Eiki - Glad your into the character. It's reinforcement for me to do more, as I don't have many. More to come! Thanks for dropping in.
Edward - Thanks for the info. I also realized that it called for a quadruped I was so quick to get started, that I missed it. Glad it was practice and not real freelance.
LtPlissken - Thanks for the stars dude. I'm glad your digging the sketching side of things. I'm really trying to hang onto that, while also getting better at painting. It can be a fine line. Thanks for the heads up about a little bio, as well. I'm going to drop something in there soon.
Tass - Your a comrade man, that's what we do for one another. Thanks for the returning support!
Myllys - Thanks for taking the time. The foliage studies were super fun to do! I'm going give em another round soon and try some different kinds of plants. Glad you like!
Johnathan C - Danke!
diCharge - No problem, it was a pleasure
kingkostas - Your brushwork is an inspiration. Really glad to have you look at my stuff. Thanks for the kind words on texture. I love my overlay and multiply layers, but the blending sliders in photoshop opened up another way of doing things, and I kept rolling with it. Again, consider me a frequenter and fan of your book from here on.
So I'm gonna apologize right up front about the quality of this photo. I haven't posted in a while, and wanted to give some evidence of why not. This is a 30 x 40, oil on canvas landscape I've been pining away at. This has roughly twenty hours in it, and has been many different things/had many perspectives in that time. Oil painting is hard...but I've been really happy to see how much my digital practice seems to carry over. I've worked with oils before, but it's been awhile. This has been a good refresher. Once it's complete, I'll post some high-res, more purdy shots...
These are awesome and I love the textures and I can't wait to see more
I really love the environments!
I don't really have much constructive things to say..
But I'd like to see some studies. I'd really like to see the environment studies as well as the environments you make up. That way I can see how you apply things, that'd be interesting.
All the best!
Hey thanks for the post on my sketchbook a while back, just getting round to returning the favour and wow, your work is stunning, the amount of imagination and atmosphere that is imprinted in the viewers mind without actually painting every single detail is awesome, very professional looking stuff here, love the environment pieces especiallly. All of this work screams confidence in the tools your wielding, brush strokes and all, 5 stars and subscribed keep it up.
ahoj - thank you sir. we spent a ton of time understanding different kinds of surfaces in ID, so it's been something i've really tried to bring over to my work digitally. glad you dig it!
LtPlissken - thanks for stopping by again. i did that one pretty fast, so that's good to hear. more and more, i'm learning that my quickest stuff, somehow ends up being my best. thanks again.
Loathsome - tell me about it. i've got back into oils recently, and am going go out and do some studies in those. im cringing as i type this. im guessing painting realism is gonna be much harder than just making my own enviros, but it'll be good for me. thanks dropping in.
Windmaker - that seems to be a hot one! im glad your into it. guys like Jama, Peleng, xchosunx have some of the sickest brushwork and mark making around. it's been something i've been focusing heavily lately. Very cool to hear you pointing it out. Thank you!
Mr. Tom - thank you for the subscribe man! i do prefer to leave things pretty ambiguous and undefined, but am also working towards fleshing things out more too. I think there is happy medium im really close to achieving. thanks again for swinging by.
ok, my apologies for the lack of updates. i have stuff, but get that "its not as good as the last stuff you posted" feeling. thats probably dumb though, considering this is a sketchbook. when i get a free moment this weekend, i drop some recent sketches.
In the meantime, check out this process video I put together, from a concept I posted a couple pages earlier, for feature film script, "Easton's Article". It's a unique, fresh take on sci-fi realism, and makes you think the whole way through. It's being funded on kickstarter.com, with a $15,000 goal, and is more than 2/3 of the way there, but if it doesn't reach that goal by Nov. 8th, they get nothing! Check out the link below for the video and to find out how you can help.
