    Excelent work, very traditional look with that watercolor. Thanks for the steps!

    wow a dragon toy, sounds great, and you get to be friends with the guy with the biggest balls in the comic industry(as said by joe casey).And you actually deserve it, the painting is great man.

    Chuck, this piece of work is certainly an eye catcher. BEAUTIFUL. The colors really pop out at you, and there is plenty of detail to draw the eye in. Interesting way people who create artwork come up with their ideas isn’t it. I liked hearing how looking out at the birdbath and seeing the cardinal got the idea stated for you. I love hearing stories like that.

    You’re one of the winners of the McF. Art contest! Great! The work above is certainly awesome. Keep up the cool creations J

    Great work there Chuck. I really appreciate the addition of traditional media. I have been kicking around ways of including all the things I learned in school into the digital realm. Great process and final product.

    ICH - Yeah, you could be right. I liked the pop of the white border line, but it's close to being too distracting. Oh well, it didn't seem to hurt me in the contest. Thanks for the words!

    Beelow - Hey Beelow. I haven't seen you since EON, how've things been? Are you going to do the Strange Behavior challenge? I probably will, but no ideas yet.

    BohemianChaos - Who, me? Thank you.

    Kek - No problem. I'm glad you liked seeing the WIPs.

    MikeCorriero - Aaaaah yeaah. It's going to be the cover of PS CS4, take that! No. Of course it's not. But if you're impressed, that's good enough for me.

    BFWingard3 - THX!

    Kilbourne - Yeah, sometimes I scan in paper drawings, sometimes I draw completely in PS. It's nice to be able to change gears if I'm not getting anywhere, and just try a different approach. It gets me through drawer's block.

    Rayph - Thank you, sir.

    Ellingsworth - No, enough posting, more ass patting. Thank you.

    Chupacabra - Yeah, I need to try reigning in the saturation on a piece and doing something more monochromatic. Thanks for the kudos.

    Darkside - Thanks!

    spudstudios - Thank you.

    Bralt Hannicart - Cool, I'm glad you like.

    Rascar Capac - When I first read your comment, I said out loud "Oh hell no, that better not be MY Hovig" (ask Amber). But you went to ArtCenter and, really, how many Hovigs can there be? Thanks for letting me know that you're still alive and congratulations on a successful career. New Zealand? Really? We'll have to chat offline some time.

    MoonVisionStudio - Thanks Jose!

    Borilius - I'm glad you appreciated the steps.

    bhanu - Yeah, but I don't mean to sound misleading. I win a toy from one of their existing lines. Some people have interpreted my words to mean that they're going to make a toy based on my painting, but that's not part of the deal. I wish.

    Bruce Pluto - Very glad to hear that you find the background info interesting. A lot of times seeing a piece of an animal, either in the yard or on my HDTV, sparks some kind of idea.

    Mechanicalstrings - They sure are. Now I could do a dragon inspired by a squirrel or Blue Jays. Thanks so much!

    Mr. Wadey did it again, boys n girls!

    Chuck, your style is so refreshing every time you post something... That mix of traditional and digital media is so nicely done. Seeing your step-by-step of that COW piece was mind-blowing. I'm not into the whole dragon thing, but this one's awesome! Waiting for your next post now

    Simply stunning. The palette and details are remarkable, and the concept is a very unique take on something as common as dragons. I found the WIP progress shots to be very helpful, though I do have some questions. Namely, how many layers did u have during each WIP screenshot? (and what were the various layers). Did you merge the watercolor layer with the background and keep the dragon on a separate layer, or was this a one layer masterpiece?

    Oh, and thanks for sharing this wonderful work of art .

    Yeah, I am really quite eager to try your technique with the watercolours, if you don't mind me biting off your idea.
