    Looking good, dude!
    I think Solaris #1 may be one of your best to date.

    Just talked to George Mann at BL. He said you were doing some covers for them and that they were fantastic. Now I see what he was talking about.

    Great work!

    Amazing paintings. I love those saturated shadow edges on Solaris 1, and also the proportions on your Knight of Cups. To me, the face seems a little large on the Elf Fair piece. But, wow, really great paints!

    Lovely colour and I really enjoy the quiet, measured pace of how your forms work together. The first,in particular, makes me think of John William Godward - which aint no bad thing. I rather like too, how you have brought off the movement in that last one with the dress and not made it look corney.
    In terms of book covers they give off a sort of 'feel good' mood that is hard to put my finger on as to what makes that so.....but it would certainly tempt me to pick it up from the self and read the back cover.

    great work and far beyond my ability to give any meaningful crits!

    also, the knight of cups has awesome jack kirbyesque gloves

    im trying to think of what i dont like about these. its hard to crit such good work!

    I think that you could have pushed for a more interesting lighting in some of these
    solaris 1 has some neat effects going on with the lighting in the sail.
    other than that they all seem to be standing outside, mid-day, with a slight overcast.
    this all could be because of the art direction of the book though
    still amazingly solid work.

    Victor B - thanks!

    Nathan Long - they've been great to work with. I'm waiting for sketch approval on a new on for them that I'm reallllllly excited about

    /ev - thanks, for prep I just do three thin coats of liquitex gesso in alternating directions

    Wow! Beautiful work! You're colors and lighting are impressing the hell out of me! It's really good to see a fresh batch of work from ya, especially the WIP. Good stuff man. Good time the other day btw. I'm glad that all worked out. Definitely don't get out and chill with fellow local artists enough. Keep it up Dave!

    great work Dave...I love your use of color...you don't overdo it, and they still have plenty of life.

    I can't offer any big crits, but there are a couple minor things I see...#2 - the metal texture feels fantastic around his neck, but his shoulder armor starts to feel a little plastic....#3 - I'm wondering if the bottom half of the figure should be receiving a cast shadow to help tie into the BG lighting more?

    Anyways, I love these man...really solid.

    Amazing oil paintings, Dave =)
    Thanks for sharing the acrylic underpainting-technique, I'll try to put that to use when I start fiddling with oils
    Keep it up!
