    Love the bird, lizard and frog.

    The bottom one is impressive, but because it looks so much like a filtered photo (take that as a compliment), I'm not really digging it.

    The image IMO needs to have some rougher, looser areas (like the 3 I mentioned) because that is what is makes your work appealling. The high skill level and the 'hand made' traditional quality - Hope you understand what I'm getting at.

    Nice, but i think that the iguana and the frog are too similar.
    Maybe you should add another illustration between

    Hey Lelle, thanx a bunch.
    I remember struggling so hard adapting watercolour from my acrylics and oil background, but it has truned out rather successfully.
    So much to learn, we are in this together! Practice Practice Practice!!

    bluefooted, thank you kindly

    Oni Rem, your sister must be adorable. Her name is Grace and
    she is the sweetest little girl. I just had to paint her, really. Thanx!

    chocolatejunkie, thanx for the big cheers!
    All these were editorial spots, except the frog piece, done for rather
    smaller publishing companies. However, currently I'm working on my children's book (while working for a game company as a concept artist..busybusy) and it should be out by coming spring

    Light, thanx a bunch! More coming!!

    I was thinking the same thing. My son and I are both frog junkies and those frog illustrations really stand out.

    I so want a print of the first one!

    Painter: day one

    Hello CA

    After years of pursuing traditional medium,
    I've finally decided to jump into the world of digital painting.
    At the moment, as a new comer, I'm enjoying painter a lot more than photoshop. We'll see how things go-

    As you learn more sophisticated techniques, you may switch to Photoshop, as it is far smarter than Painter will likely ever be, but as a traditional artist, you may always enjoy using what you're comfortable with, your mind, a canvas, and a series of brushes / chalks / smudgers /etc. to which Painter is far more accustomed. However, though it is a more complex method, photoshop possesses a large array of tools that can help you recreate those same brushes in an environment with less bugs and more power.

    Fine works! I'm really digging this stuff!

    Those animal images in the first post are gorgeous. Absolutely gorgeous. The rich colors and textures, the decorative spirals and criss-cross lines, the little glints of light here and there, it's all beautiful. The cicada and the beetle (is it a June beetle, by chance? Or just some random beetle?) are my favorites.
    Your painter images are looking okay. It's obvious that you're having fun with the images and experimenting with the different brushes, and I really like the impasto effects you used in the second image; it gives the image a nice molten feel. However, your Painter paintings are very flat. You need to work at transplanting your sensitivity to light and texture over to this new medium.
    Overall, great, inspiring, original work.

    Both great traditional and digital media illustrations. It gives me the inspiration to go on experimenting with water coloring. Digital's are still very lively, most of the time, at least for my self I see artists stepping from traditional to digital media having a hard time to bring up the livelyness from there traditional works.

    I'm eager to see more of your work here soon.

    Blue Disciple, you are probably right. After just a few weeks, I'm already finding photoshop a lot more easier and effective to use than painter.
    Since I'm moving from the traditional background, I think i'm just naturally attracted to painter with diverse brushes

    Long time, JesArt. How have you been?
    Yeah-so I've decided to go digital. It's not like I was forced to do it now that I'm working for a game company, but it just became natural I guess.
    Thank you so much for your kind comment on my style!
    I'm sure you don't need my style to upgrade yours! You are probably rocking already!

    Micaiah Nelson, took me sometime to understand what you said lol.
    Thank you kindly

    Moai, thank you! Yes I'm in that funny phase where I feel like Stiffler opening
    his eyes for the world of ladies for the first time- I'm definitely experimenting a lot thesedays. However, you've made a very good comment about the depth of my digital paintings and that is something that I should improve on more than anything now!!

    Whitevillage, I'm too very excited to see what i'm going to keep and how I'm going to change thru this digital phase of my life! Thank you! More coming!!
