Hi James,

as you suggested, I painted an action pose of my last character with some design changes.
I hope you can give me some hints on how to improve it further.

Hi James!

Thank you very much for the last critique on my swamp, it was really useful and I incorporated it to my final piece. I hope you can help me with this island land too. As said before, I'm practicing some MTG style lands because I love it, and working for them is one of my goals this year.

It still being a wip, this needs more detail. My idea was to have a background kind of muddy and misty, but we have a clearing in the foreground. Water is key in islands, and it is not my main strenght, so if among your pieces of advice you can help me to make my water pop out, and tell me if I'm failing in any fundamentals here, it would be awesome.

Thanks beforehand, I'm really looking forward to your feedback!

Yohan Huhner, TIER Group 4

Hi James , first of all thank you for your critique on my work from last month and have a happy new year 2016,
here's my submission for january , i tried to apply what you said and to keep my focus point the more contrasted part of my picture, tried to lead the eye through the composition the best i could with shapes and lights...
I stayed in my comfort zone to apply all that stuffs , next month i'll try something new, (architectural stuff probably, i'm really struggling with shape/ design / scale and perspective , and i dont wan't to use 3d or photo bashing, i first want to be able to figure what i want with brushstrokes ...) ...
Ps : this time i upload my image at full res ...
