Speeds. Back to having trouble with compositions and values and all the other fundamentals I should understand by now.

3rd one is wonderful, i like it. =) 1st one too generic i guess, i can even say what it is. Second one is good, but middle part of it seems weird, i guess it'll be better if that thing were following perspective grid.

Cool, thanks ksenolog. Pretty exact on all counts... Got better as the day went on, i suppose but just wasn't particularly inspired. More about going through the motions for practice then getting something really exciting out. You have any way of tackling perspective grids?

yeah, that happens when you are drawing uninspired. I produce a lot of quite boring work, sadly -_-
About perspective grids I found 2 interesting solutions lately.
Epic Games released free art tool last year [link] really easy program to create grid of any sort.
And Scott Robertson lately in his video say'd good tip about perspective grid using "paths" in photoshop : [link]
I hope I get your question right ^^

Wow these are awesome, dude! Thanks a ton. I had seen the Epic perspective thing before but at the time I had heard it didnt work well for photoshop users. I will definitely follow both of these links. Woo!

Well, this Epic's tool just creating picture with grid, so it can be used anywhere. I didn't hear anything about integration of any sort.
You are welcome. =)

i like the bottom one, a nice range of tones and colors balances it all out and it has good depth. I think the other 2 you missed some of the mid-level distance between the FG and BG, and they look a little flattened out.

Might also be that seeing the ground in the bottom one allows me to judge the distance better, whereas the top 2 dont have a solid base.

Yeah I missed out on creating depth with the two, but also the bottom one ended up pretty messy again. More than anything im trying to play with values and the percentages of light dark and mid tones that are seen on a canvas. From what I've made so far, the lighter ones i make are missing the strong depths you get with darker tones.

Another thing that bugs me is that I and a lot of the concept art I see have this tendancy to have a camera pointed at this 45-ish degree angle downward and it drives me crazy and i want to try and change that by playing with more fun perspectives. I think I might need to find some brushes, drawing my own lines I end up messing up or ignoring.

Thanks for the comment Mike, hope the blizzard contest is going well.
