    Oils on canvas and panel.

    The first image here was from the Illustration Master Class. Made the short list for the article on the class in IFX. : )

    I like the turtle and the golden haired dog gazing at you. Nice work.

    I can't believe you haven't had more comments. This stuff is great!

    The master class work came out really nice. Only critique is the over-detailing of the BG when the figure should retain all focus. Still, wish I had that kind of control over traditional media.

    looking good, I really love how you handled that turtle! Really sweet suggested/implied areas.

    You doing IMC again this year?

    I sure am, hopefully I won't be as shy around the instructors. And you had a great demo at Illuxcon. Looking forward to seeing everyone again.

    Is this a new photo of the dragon piece? I like the brighter colors in this one.

    I look forward to seeing more.

    Yeah, i think the problem with the other pic was I saved it as a PNG which had a terrible preview mode.

    Hey Aaron,

    I really like the new dragon piece.
    Sorry I wasn't able to comment on it earlier.
    You've got a mix of REALLY good and some not so good stuff going on in it though.

    The dragon itself is beautiful, wonderfully painted, wouldn't change a thing.
    My problem lies with the angel.
    Her silhouette is awkward, particularly the back leg.
    I would consider fading it into the BG more.

    It's also a real peeve of mine when I see characters holding spears near the tip.
    The very purpose of a spear is that it is LONG, so to hold it so close to the tip seems a little silly.

    I'll try to do a paintover for you in the next few days.
    If you don't hear from me, drop me a line to remind me.

    And as Dave mentioned...
    I think you handled the turtle really well.
    The shell is implied so effortlessly.

    I look forward to seeing you again this June!

    Thanks Dan,
    I kinda feel the same way about the spear, but i had gone so far with it and made so many changes that I compromised the spear to get the tension at that spot in the painting. not the best excuse but i am open to suggestions.
    And fading the leg is a good idea.

    And again thanks for taking the time to have a look. June will be a blast.

    Great stuff. I love traditional art, esp. oil. Great show of skill. The elephant is my favorite, lot of personality.
