I like it. Its looks like a quiet day after a storm. You style of painting is wonderful. Your background, middle ground and forground balances out quite nicely. And using the same tone of coloring through out the piece really adds to it.

Kudos


Thread killer and proud of it :)

Well if it took you an entire night, then you might have trouble making it as an illustrator :p

But its pretty cool. Did you do that with a tablet?

You are very welcome. Another thing...the imperfection on the building is wonderful. Makes it even more realistic.

Keep at it. I would love to see more of your work.

It was about time you made your own thread ;). I like the first one better, also kudos for the (reflection in the) water.

I was going to say, the background seems kinda flat. I like the second one better.

amazing stuff. The second feels like the person is trapped in with the house. To me it resembles all those who dont go out enough and only see the outside through a window most days :(

Are those puddles of water?

Anyways, I like your style of drawing, I like your idea for using dark and dull colours instead of bright like neon-green for the grass or light brown for the mud.

I totally love the distant of the woods, as the colourshadings fade away when it gets farder away.

Great job.

Heres a new pictiure.
Hands got mighty screwed up, i need to study more hand-anatomy.

I need to losen up more on the colors aswell, i've noticed that i tend to do dull and light images, and thats no good.

All of your art is great -- What sort of tablet do you use? (assuming you use one)

hands look good to me :)

Pictures are amazing when you do them. Just some questions...

1: Have you ever done a self-portrait? If so, I want to see it.
2: If not, can you make one?
-and-
3: How long did it take you to become that good? Don't be modest, some people can actually master styles in a month or so. Possibly even less.

Look below this post. I've done more, but i dont have any thing on the computer atm. If i had a small mirror by my computer i would have started a new project i saw someone else do, "1000 self portraits" he did one self portrait each day for 3 years. Unbelivable. (i woulndt do 1000 but at least 100 :)

2: If not, can you make one?

Duh :P

hm.. Im not sure really. I allways improving, so I've just been THIS good for maybe a week or two :P

This one looks amazing - you are like, awesome.
The only thing I don't like is the middle finger of the dude's right hand. Apart from that is it cool.

I was just wondering, because I want your skills :P
