    Your work is lovely but I gotta say your Ace of Pentacles and Page of Cups are a bit off. The Ace of Pentacles represents a spark of a new beginning, a gift. And the "Page" should be much younger, a young and youthful child. Still, the work is very nice.

    Nice seeing your work again, Dave!

    The last one's my favorite due to the texturey fun, and it's easily the most successful of the texture figures group you posted, imo. I think that you just nailed the surface contrasts really nicely. I sort of wish that I felt more contrast in your surfaces, but when I look closely at your work you definitely treat your materials differently. I do dig the more obvious efforts at broken color that you're putting into your paintings, though. Definitely livens things up.

    Great work!

    all great stuff! As with most artists, i like your personal work the best. No one telling you what to do where! I also love the Sparkle one. And out of the commercial work my favorite is Balmgiver.

    hey, it's been awhile, I have to stop letting them pile up like this! Unfortunately I still have pending NDAs and that sort of thing, but here's a batch of work that I <span style="font-style:italic;">can</span> share

    I'll get on later tonight or tomorrow and finally get to responding to the comments so far, sorry for the lapse!

    "The Scavenger" is my favorite. I really love how dominant she is but how submissive and shy the horse looks in contrast.

    Great stuff, Dave. Love the Scavenger and the Shield of Reverence in particular.

    Only one crit. I keep staring at Holmes's hat. maybe it's an optical illusion, but I could swear it doesn't line up with his head. It looks shifted to our left. Rest of the painting is brilliant. Love the nimbus around the streetlights, and the palette in general.

    sevarenge - thanks!
    bjoern3000 - thanks! I need to update more regularly >_>
    Dizon - thanks!
    Zirngibism - thanks! It's funny because I mostly was painting the portrait for that demo and ended up having to re-do the entire head later because they felt it didn't fit the character

    Bill - thanks! I try
    Grendel Grack - thanks!
    rlederer - thanks, fun to loosen up now and then
    Razorleaf - thanks! I appreciate the comments on the tarot interpretations. The set that I'm contributing on is taking some liberties/reinterpreting from the "classic" definitions, though from what I've learned in the research that we've done, there are a wide variety of takes on it already out there. We're trying not to be too chained to a standard text.
    theincredibleandy - thanks man!

    JailHouseRock2 - thanks!
    darknight - thanks!

    Denart - thanks, you should check my sketchbook link below
    nevs26 - thanks!

    Awesome.

    Any chance of you doing a video of one of these paintings (a la Dos Santos)? That'd be amazing if it happened.

    Matt Smith - thanks!
    Dizon - thanks, I'm so used to my old-timey 1280x1024 monitor I forget people have these new giant displays and my stuff probably looks like tiny stamps
    Extollere - and again
    Shantih - thanks!
    Ericus - thanks!
    Dirty C - thanks dude!
    Noah Bradley - no plans to at the moment. I'm taking progress shots on the cover that I'm currently working on, so I may put together a tut/process overview from that, but I'm a bit video-tarded. Though my new Canon 5D mk2 does shoot amazing hd video, so maybe if I can figure out how to work the bastard
    steven6 - thanks!

    well, it's the end of the year and that means update time. I'm unfortunately still sitting on dozens of pieces (some which I'm starting to think may not ever be showable), but don't let that fool you that I haven't be working

    And for those who don't follow my blog or sketchbook, I've been doing a series of 5x7 nude oil studies for a year and some change now. I put out a limited collection earlier in the year and now I'm working on a follow-up for 2010. I can't say much about it yet other than it'll be bigger, thicker, and hardcover. I'm super excited about it. Here are some recent pieces from the series, though there are a whole hell of a lot more on my blog and website:

    Mary13, to quote Julien, is "elegant." This is definitely a gorgeous one - very ethereal looking! The pose & colours are just perfect together!

    A hardback? Oooohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, put me on the list please! I am so happy to have your first one!

    I second Noah's suggestion - I really hope you can crack into that Canon video.

    I love the energy of the oil 'sketches' of the women...
    I'd watch a video on just THOSE!

    thans for sharing!
