I've been on DA for quite some time now. I've improved to the point where sometimes I do stuff that I believe is front page worthy. Yet, I struggle to get any views, I started to wonder if I'm really improving. I think you have excellent pieces and you have very few comments and followers, so it's quite reassuring. How the hell does somebody get to the front page ? Keep it up man your stuff is amazing.

I love your art! The way you render textures seems lively. How do you pick your colors if I may ask? I am having trouble with colors and I've heard that value is really important, do you have any advice?

Thanks! :D

thank you. to answer your question.. I usualy work with dull muddy colors in the begining, when the shape starts to take.. well, shape , I apply a few wide strokes of complementary colors as overlay and see what happens. in the end i fiddle a bit with curves to balance the whole thing. thats it I guess..

So you go straight to color after building the underpainting?
