    Magic cards, book covers, and gallery work *pg. 2 update, nudity*

    Ahoy

    Stuff has been accumulating here since the last update, so here goes:

    this first batch is for the new Magic set Shards of Alara. All oils on board, though the rhino men had some digital tweaks done to it. These are all 11x15 except Cancel (the hand crushing a spell) which I think was something like 6x8

    These are two recent book covers, the first for Night Shade Books and measuring 16x24, the second for Pyr and measuring 14x21. Both oils on board

    These are for my gallery. The first one, "Pink Man Blue Bird", was for a group show but it's the start of a series which I'll be working up between now and February. 18x20, oil on board. The last two are part of a different series I'm starting. Both oils on board, the wide one is 8x13, the tall one is 6x14

    Very nice, as usual, however I think you could benefit from some softer brush play especially in areas such as hair and facial features. This critique is mostly directed towards your first gallery piece of the man folding his arms. Just my thoughts. I love the variety and the last two pieces are very nice, and look great in contrast to the commercial work.

    ...the last one appeals to me most... nice composition, it's balanced colour wise, and the subject leaves its interpretation open ended.

    Serul Swiftblade. Awesome.

    I love the one for Night Shade Books, too. Polar bear.

    Damn, Dave. These are gorgeous. That first book cover is fantastic! I'm loving the gallery work pieces too, they're so powerful. Thanks for sharing this huge drop!

    They all look incredible! Especially the covers and the one with the polar bear. The one with Boris, that's gotta be the biggest hand I've seen in a long time, heh.

    Very inspiring.

    Hiya, Dave. Great work all around. Love the book covers especially, and particularly, the dragon with the pink bow. I laughed out loud.
