science of fairy tales
I'd like to start posting some of my ideas and it's visualisations. It's just dreaming and trying to catch feeling of romantic fairy tales, dramatic movies and pathetic history by somebody completely captive by racional technical mind. It's how huge and impressive unreal things of other worlds can work, even if my presentation of them is not always such impressive.

now some trees
typical experimenting with brushes, you know?
=> it led to this refinement:
It was inspirated by something like druids and their oak, however, these characters realy aren't druids, their are some women kind spectres probably made of dark metter, because their are dark at all. Such beings meets at this tree.
The tree looked out a bit tiny on the pervious picture - like appletree in garden. Well, I tried to make it a bit more impressive and serious. Now it's better with the tree, but the strange presons are now almost invisible. It's a trouble, everything can't be big-and-even-bigger on the picture

Now some of my beloved nose-less creatures. Their can be even faceless because they don't eat by mouth and teeth. Tissue of their body is something between jelly of medusa and silk fibers. If they catch some victim, they amalganate fibers of their body into do body of victim and digest it as it is.
just like this:
and this picture realy express matter of their body
detail of faces - thes creatures are ferocious bud very melancholic and sentimental - can you see it in their eyes?
some of them live in swamps, very wet forests but with clear watter - no mud. Some liv in very very high grass on the shore.
and this is how they eate and feel - body of fibers soaks

Very iteresting way of drawing anatomy concepts of some creatures. Using one tyle pod brush for the backbone an an other (hollowed-circle, 1% spacing) for the muscles.

And some more detailed fight sketches.
Fight paintings is one thing I realy would like to can well.
some outlaw or may-be assassin jumping on a knight
fight a hoplite with lighter armoured spearman.
some nomad riders on the ride. Probably a bid europanized.
this is pose of horse and rider which I'm relly not very good at. It allways looks a bit unrealistic.

Hi, you're off to a nice start at your sketchbook. You seem to have a lot of ideas and it is great to see them comming alive in your paintings. My favourite one of your posts is the sketch for the huge elephant. The use of colors in that one really captivated me and I would have loved to see them carried through to the finnished painting. But that's just my personal preference. Anyways, great stuff mate. Keep them comming.

Based on the same sketch (the first on the second picture in the pervious post)
I also tried to make a dryad. However I still can't finish it.
the best I can is this - she is child of dark forest, and she is fascinated by sun on the border, but alsou she knows how dengerous the sunny green field can be for her.
I tryied also other forks of this picture, but none was very good.
I can't even choose which face to use. I painted a few possibilities. It's my big problem, I never can take decisions.

There are some more sketch of the giant elephant with sails or tents,
Id like to expres size of elephant, nakedness of food soldiers and some action.
Also I want to play with light shining throught dust in air near ground and sails or tends in higher area in contrast to crystal clear skyes and fresh air above battlefiel. Food soldiers crawl in dust under legs of elephant while nobels riding elephant are like gods in confortable seats and fresh air.

I tried paint glass pot with watter standing in front of window on my table, to learn how to
1]paint lights instead of lines
3]not to bother with details and concentrate on major features

My next favourite topic is Valkiria, It's not just nice oportunity to paint woman-warrior but also a mystical creature.
the first image reflect more the idea: Proud and seductive half-god takes fallen warrior to halls of Valhala. The second is more like common harpia.
