    Wow, nice starting images. The lignting in the second is just incredible, that and the colors really bring it to life. Are these done with acrylics? Keep it up, I'll be stopping around when you're new stuff arrives.

    I visited your site, and i remembered the girl with the umbrella, you once posted...

    The second is awesome, i like the light green brush strokes indicating light...but i think it would look better with straight stroke-lines like real sunrays are...

    Thanks for all of the kind comments! For those that have asked, these are all done in Photoshop 7 except for the one of the orange mountain. That was done in acrylics while I was in Arizona. I mostly use the textures in photoshop to give a little more of a painterly quality for the sketches. Again thanks for the comments, and here's another one finally.

    Great stuff. The last one really reminds me of McDevitt's stuff ( Sci Fi writer).

    To summarize the summary of the summary : people are the problem.
