I really like the green cave. Once you get more comfortable in this environment, I would love it if you could paint the very first painting I will put up in my house. =)

I've not put pen or pencil to paper for years. I keep meaning to. Even got some pads and pencils n'stuff but photography ends up being my medium of choice. I've seen a few things to inspire me recently so I think I'll have a go.

I have to say that I like the top right one the best. It's very dark and creepy. :D

i'd say you did a nice job... so you probably do but don't enjoy is as much perhaps?

i think the top two are pretty good. the middle are kind of "blah" and the left one on the last row looks pretty cool. the right on the last row looks really good. so basically, the top left and the bottom right look pretty realistic. ^-^

the middle are definitely my weakest. i agree with you.

my classmate liked the purple mountain one best too. curious!

but you should try. i've never done them before, but i had a good time. i might use these and composite drawings i've done around them.

Nice and loose, I like that. Great lighting and effective use of negative space. The statue and temple ruins are very good, there's a good sense of foreshadowing and oppression. You might want to try shifting your pallet colors a bit more to warmer or cooler (a bit too close to the middle spectrum) for a bigger sense of depth.

I hope that helps... and remember it's just my opinion. YMMV

thank you, i kinda liked the statue one too. i was trying to keep thing mid grey, but i forgot to go back in with really light greys ... so i have to do that soon.

*nod* understood. Utilizing a limited pallet gives you experience in controlling values, rather than relying on color to convey mood, depth or atmosphere. So learning one rule before learning a different set of rules. :)

Don't we all? Learning is part of the joy... it's the scenery we witness as we travel the path.

Enjoy yourself while you can. :)
