    Strych9ine-> Thanks mate, its good to hear that from you. :beer:

    But the main reason i dumped Moses was that the teqnique (spelling??) i used was really timeconsuming, the last version of the WIP of the character was something like 70% done, and then i had to add the background aswell and that would take another 10 hours.. It was a kind of experiment for me to see how detailed i could go without going crazy, and well, i went to far with it.

    In other words, Moses as you have seen him wont make it to thunderdome.. Hopefully i will get back on the train when the final images start to drop in and the muse speaks to me again.

    Cheers! :chug:

    I finally have a scanner, so this thread will be updated a bit more often from now on, but not too often, i dont want to spend all my time scanning and not drawing.

    Markers and ballpoint. One of my "best" sketches in a while, i like the feel.

    A sketch i tried to save, you can still see the original linework under the black, i think it turned out ok though. Markers, ballpoint and white pencil.

    The DSG topic was "Dragonslayer Sword" so i made this broken blade with ballpoints and markers. I usually stay away from drawing weapons unless itīs part of a character or a scene, but if itīs a DSG itīs a DSG... I think it turned out ok so here it is:

    And a failed marker sketch i did my best to save in photoshop:

    really cool stuff, i dig the black and whites a lot the color piece gets muddy with all the use of brown in your colors. but it has a good sense of light overall, good stuff

    dude....

    VAST improvement on the colors that red one with the army is HOT!!! definatly the winner of the color pieces you've done so far. i'd keep to what you're doing (basically 2 colors split compliments...) its working well for you, and the detail is there as well.. like i said, MUCH improved...

    Hi Olsen,

    I especially like your latest orc-pieces. One can see the improvement and fun you had with this topic. The style of the orcs reminds me a bit of Ian Miller, a british illustrator I really loke. If you donīt know his works, yet, have a look at them. Very dark and gothic!

    Thanks for the reply Fipse.

    I made a search for Ian Miller on Google but all i got was some minimal thumbnails and a babyblue dragon that wasnt gothic at all. If you have a good link to his work it would be great if you posted it. I think i recognice his name from Games Workshop, am i wrong about that?

    Yeah, he did some work for Games Workshop in the late 80īs/early nineties (e.g. 3rd edtition Warhammer Fantasy Battle/Realm of Chaos) when their stuff wasnīt so heavily pre-visualized.

    But heīs done more stuff. Heīs done great illustrations for the "lord of the rings" and an attended bestiary, moviework, coverart etc. Hereīs a bit about him: http://www.deliriummag.com/ianmiller.html

    Most work I connect with him is black and white pendrawing with masses of details.

    Is "loke" sort of like the median of like and love... if it's a typo it was a beneficial mistake. At least for me... I'm gonna start using that word.




    I really like all these sketches... especially the hanging one and the sword. You're color work looks great as well.

    Ooo, love the spaceship thumbnails, very cool. I think the first one especially. Also thought you pulled off that "dragonslayer" sword extremely well. Keep up the good work.
