So Sangram told me one thing I should work on is focusing on the environment of paintings as much as the figures in them. He said one thing that would be a good exercise would be doing a few environmental paintings. For me this means stepping wayyy out of my comfort zone, but it's definitely worth pursuing if I want to rock as hard as I want to at comics.
So I decided to take on these 3 different environment types as well as palettes.
I think the good thing that can be said about these is that they are much better then I thought they would be...It helped alot to just think about the composition and palette. I learned alot of neat texture tricks on these that you should look forward to seeing in my future work.
