Wonderful colours/atmosphere in the latest environment, can't wait to see that one finished!
Ben: Thanks! I do have a good feeling about this one.
Josh: Thanks man!!
Some rather minor tweaks. Really trying to take my time with this one and think it all through.
Want to help? Look at the updated sketch and let me know what path your eyes follow. What you look at first, what second and what third and so on.
If you wan't to see what I'm trying to make you look at and in which order you can see the gameplan here:
And ofcourse as always! critiques are more than welcome!
In the meantime I'm off to search some reffs and to do some in preparation studies.
Love the newest one, especially the hue variation you've managed to pack in even though it's quite a subdued palette. :') If it helps, my eyes travel down the blocks as planned, but they kinda level out at the horizon and just travel left to right... I don't actually make it to the bottom left corner. (I did this before looking at the plan, just to make sure I wasn't influenced by it.) Idk if that helps at all..
ApinyoYuwasilp: Thanks! And yes, yes it is. What is dead may never die bro.

Great Updates, landscape on post #485 is coming out very nice, I'm loving the colors on that one, the Sargent study came great and so did the last one, keep 'em coming!
That environment looks fantastically moody and realistic. The composition looks balanced, really like the detail vs loose balance and colors look vibrant and very realistic with all the subtleties. Really, really great work!
I also like the brushing style on the armor study and how much energy it adds. Steel color became a lot bluer but it works well that way too.
Can't see a brush stroke to crit, keep them coming!
Nice sketchbook man and great studies. I read your post you made of the cow drawing and how something clicked with you about flattening curved forms into flat planes, and I was laughing because that exact same thing seemed to click with me around the same time. I've been having a lot of trouble with construction for organic forms because I just wouldn't know where to start as the form would be so complex, but now it kinda all makes sense lol. Anyways great work and keep it up .

Smuli: Thanks. On the armor study I was intentionally pushing the colors to extremes to get more interesting look.
It's something I have been trying to incorporate to my paintings. I actually learned it from seago paintings. If you look some of hes paintings you may notice that there's some splahes of rather vibrant colors on where you don't realistically expect them (Vibrant splashes of blue in grass for example)
will123will: Thanks. And yeah some things just need time and practice to sink in.
"Seven Samurai" screenshot study:

Psychobuddy: Will do.
Smuli: Yeah I know one shouldn't be using black, but it's so tempting.
Have bunch to learn about color mixing.
Some sketches/thumbs. Really I'm just trying to create interesting color schemes from imagination.

Still kicking arse man.
What i love about this sketchbook is the variety of work.
The Knight study (post no. 488) was that painted in Photoshop or painter?
