Needs more practice...

I think I have an annoying tendency to paint brown in shadows. Granted, I wasn't using reference, which, is NOT an excuse.Sigh. Oh Well. Move on and do better next time ;)

Nice piece. Painting brown for shadows isn't that terrible of a habit. Well, I mean, at least it isn't completely black.

Thanks for sharing your demo in the post below (and great piece below that post). It looks solid. Silly question: So you're focusing on being an environment concept artist specializing in matte painting?

Love your portfolio, BTW... I'm jealous of it's proffesionalism and skill.

Wow, I'm such a fan of your work and website gallery. I was referred to your blog by Shou. I must work harder on matte painting :)

Wow! Really good stuff! Like "really". It was good meeting you yesterday.

I think the browns have helped in giving your paintings an earthly, golden feel. They're very nice... but if you want to force yourself to try something different... you can perhaps try a blue underpainting first before everything else.
