Man do I think of Skyrim when I see this.
Great all around composition.
Makes me think of a dwarven ruin. It does all the right things.

Hey, as usual, its my pleasure, Your work is getting better and better,
I hope you decide to do some illustration work at some point, we might have some collaborating to do.
You have some really strong landscapes and your detail level is starting to really move forward.
So, there you go. Good stuff. Right? LOL

Not that you weren't doing good work, but some of your recent stuff is showing effort.
Actually going back through some of your older work there are images that are very detailed and have different things that could have had subtle changes.
Either way I like a lot of it.

The thing about details. I hate doing them. I'll only put in more detail if the image is worth it. Otherwise, I get real bored and don't want to finish. I've taken all that time before on images that are just meh.

That was unexpected. It sounds like that is the area that you feel is not your strong suit. Like you aren't as fast at getting the result you need.
In all fairness, I would try to stop doing that. You shuold force yourself to infuse your work with them to learn all the techniques you might need when a gem rolls out of your mind onto the screen.
Without the constant practice at high level and detail work, how can you expect to move forward.
I think your talented as hell, why cut yourself short?

Hmm, I don't think so. For me, it's not about the detail. I can do photo-realistic images :thumb194179191:. I've also done this in oil paintings, but realism isn't what I'm trying to achieve. My goal is to paint what doesn't exist; it's coming up with the concept. I've always had this barrier, but I've only recently crossed it last year. Since then, I haven't stopped. Been digitally painting for a little over a year now. Instead of taking one of my made-up images and rendering out to full detail, I do detailed studies of things that interest me. These studies allow me to learn something new and I apply that to what I already know. It's building up my visual library so when I do get good enough, I can render them out.

I'm not sure what drives me. You just do what you love, you know? I sell myself short because I know I can do better. Perhaps that's my drive :). Never give up.
