Your realism, and sense of contrast, and attention to light and shadow and color and weight, is rare and impressive.

Your paintings are what I invision when I start to paint digitally, but by the end my work ends up way too tight. I blame the precise inking and watercolour I've been doing for the past few years.

Thank you for such inspirational work.

That's an interesting observation.  

One way to loosen up is to think more about the play of light and shadow within your scenes.  Where light hits a surface, it will bring out clear detail and sharp edges.  Where light does not reach, shadow obscures detail and softens edge definition.   Often when we say that work feels "loose" or expressive, it is because it has this natural balance of detail and obscurity (light and shadow).  If you find that your works of usually too tight, it may be that you are not utilizing light and shadow enough.  

I just took a gander at your gallery.  You have some great works. I especially like your Warriors of Virtue series.
I took the liberty of doing a quick and messy paintover of this one with the wizard.  Seen here:

 My aim was simply to enhance the lighting that you already started.  Much of what I did, was to remove detail that would not be revealed by the light, such as the side and back of the wizard's head.

You wouldn't have to light the scene as I did.  You can modify the intensity to best serve the story that you are telling.  That is one of the great things about light and color. You can modify it endlessly, without changing the subject.

If you'd like an excellent course on light and color, check out Nathan Fowkes'  Schoolism class:…
I think it would be great for you, and take your work to a whole new level!
