You have made some very nice historic paintings. In the last one i especially like the feather fan and her face, very nicely rendered!
Und das Schlimme ist, dass ich genau diese Gedanken kenne, nur bei mir halte ich das für mehr als angebracht, während Du doch so viel und positive Resonanz auf Deine arbeiten bekommst. und wenn du dich mal mit anderen Künstlern deines alters vergleichst, dann wirst Du wahrscheinlich sehr schnell erkennen, dass du nicht im Durchschnitt liegst, sondern weit darüber.
Ich finde es immer so frustrierend, wenn sich Künstler mit Deinem Skill über ihre Fähigkeiten beschweren, während man sich selbst mit dem wirkllich objektiven Wissen über eine eigene Unfähigkeit plagen muss...ich hoffe, du verstehst, was ich damit sagen will.^^
Thank you Fumble =)
It's true I've achieved a lot for my age, strictly objectively speaking, I know it quite well, but my subjective mind doesn't care, it feels whatever it wants. There's nothing I can do about feelings, just accept them and move on. I hope most people won't mind me posting about my inferiority feelings just once, it was the first time I did this in all my internet years and enough for me too
man these are beautifully rendered
That last one is really beautiful. In her hairnet, I notice that even the pearls that are in shadow have highlights and core-shadows, which doesn't make a lot of sense in that lighting scenario.
Really nice stuff. The only thing I'd say (and I'm hardly an expert so you can tell me to f@ck off) is that often it seems quite flat. I reckon if you added some more bounce light and other light sources and would really lift your work and make it pop out of the canvas. Back ligting also really helps to give depth and separate things on different planes
Awesome sketchbook output! Thanks a lot for sharing! Keep on posting these sketchbook pages please. Maybe you want to join the spartan camp (50 poses a week). Rock on !
andres333, thank you =)

New work: The Execution of Lady Jane Grey
In the Tudor era (and probably in the Middle Ages too) it was customary for the executioner to ask the condemned's forgiveness. It was supposed to show that he held no malice towards the victim; that he was only an extension of the law doing his job. By granting forgiveness the condemned also had a chance of showing magnanimity in the face of death, thus leaving a good impression on the spectators.
Lady Jane Grey forgave her executioner, as did Anne Boleyn and Catherine Howard before her.
Who was Lady Jane Grey? She was designated queen by young king Edward Seymour (the son and successor of Henry VIII, as you remember).
But when he died in 1553, she managed to be queen for only about 2 weeks, because Henry's daughter Mary Tudor had many supporters and so became queen the same year.
The 17 year old Lady Jane Grey, though she didn't plot against Queen Mary herself, became a symbol of resistance and Protestantism and so became dangerous to the Catholic politics of Mary. Queen Mary had her executed for "high treason" in 1554.
Even today historians aren't sure if she had a legitimate claim to the throne or not, so she's usually not included in a line-up of English regents.
Hmm. That's quite a lot of death scenes in my portfolio so far. Perhaps I should paint a birth some time...! Nevermind. The next painting, of course, is going to feature Mary Tudor ("the Catholic" or "Bloody Mary" depending on whose side you're on).
Photoshop and Wacom tablet as always, took about 30 hours or so. (Social life? What's that? XD)

Special thanks to the folks here on CA for kicking my butt
wow your progress is amazing. You make me feel lazy
Fantastic digitals, subbed!
I have lurked on your sketchbook for a while admiring your work.
I decided today I had to post.
The detail and color in your paintings are wonderful, and your sketches are terrific.
The weight in your sketches in truly amazing, I'm not sure how you accomplish it.
So, thanks for the great work, and please keep it up!
WOW~, U R GREAT!
Which book you used for studying anatomy(i mean your post in #643 http://www.conceptart.org/forums/sho...&postcount=643)
ear5cm, thank you
I don't know the name of that book, it was in Russian. I'd like to scan the cover and post it here, but don't have the book anymore. I sold it to the awesome Mandy Boursicot/. Perhaps she can tell you the book title.
Anyway, more sketchbook pages.
Copying some serious horse anatomy from Bammes. Copying the running skeletons from Bammes was a school assignment.
Random fun stuff from imagination - my sketchbook needs more of this, I think. All the silly shit that I do because it reminds me how much FUN drawing is, no matter how much of a chore it becomes sometimes.
Some slash drawings. That means GAY STUFF. Click only if you don't mind cute Tintin/Haddock slash. Work safe and silly.
This one's not so gay, tho: http://maidith.deviantart.com/art/Si...rt-1-269148179

My newest digital painting, Queen Elizabeth I. My "Tudor Queens" series is finished! This is the eighth and final image in the series.
I put her in a forest setting because I think the real Elizabeth would have liked this - a relaxing rest from restrictive court life, nothing artificial here. And because my gallery needs more green paintings anyway.
I feel like I'm finally starting to figure out the gorgeous sunlight-shining-through-green-leaves light.
