    Hey nice work. It looks really well resolved and communicates your idea perfectly. Love the textures and colour pallet.

    Thanx alot Ivan
    Hey FIG im guessing you meant to say there was is a portrait thing on the forum here 2mrw? I wont be able to do anything because I'll be tied down with work all day (office work! i know, disgusting) but heres to make it up. Some work from my Final year project.

    Its concept art work for a proposed video game based on the life of real life pirate Anne Bonny. The theory of this project was to create a game derived from historical research/accuracy. So thats why you wont see eye patches/parrots...or anything thats cliche pirate.
    Heres portraits of Anne Bonny and Jack Rackam (with Ralph Fiennes as cast) and a couple of environments.

    There is a keyscene painting I want to show but I'm currently touching up its flaws. About 80% of the project was drawing. Other paintings from the project I'm not so content with. I worked with a 3D animation student as a collaboration project, so I might consider showing u guys what she came up with.

    But I guess this is a good enough taste.

    Heya Thaw,
    Cheers for the kind words
    Great work here! I'll leave you a more helpful comment sometime soon, kinda in a rush right now! But have subscribed to ur thread, so keep posting.

    Would love to see the 3D work ur collaborator came up with. Really interesting idea for major! A friend and I toyed with ideas of doing a joint major too, but it never came to fruition

    And I love pirates too mate Liked your Peter Pan (?) Enviro you did for digi illus too - spotted it on the forum (incidentally the pencils for that were particularly Alan Lee looking! - not a bad thing). I did a painting of Jack Sparrow for Pauls class. Love the pirates

    Cool, catch you round at Vincents

    Matty
