    Like the background effect with the falcon(?). Your animals are quite good. Being mostly self-taught myself I found having an instructor does great wonder for your knowledge an experience.

    You should give it a go. The dragon's anatomical form is kinda funky and some of the cityscape feels off perspective-wise. That can be fixed by a quick study practice of perspective drawing. Believe me, I read and worked from a book on perspective and it became a template in my head.

    OmenSpirits Thanks heaps! Never really had an instructor! I like funky!....and I agree with the perspective, however it's framed and hangin in a gallery/bar in Osaka. Might do something like it again with PS.

    Here is my latest painting " Sunrise over Kongo Mountain " 650x1000mm, acrylics on canvas. On display now at the Osaka Contemporary Art Center, part of a group show Transnational Art 2010.

    One of my first times using acrylics like this, and I'm ready for the next!

    Your all work Graphite pencil, colour pencils, oils and others are very good. We can see good improvement in using the colors and exposing them in the better way. Keep doing good work.

    Just finished!

    Galapagos Iguana's, " love love ", colour pencils on illustration board.

    The real pic looks better than the photo. When the weather clears up, will take a photo of it outside!

    Thanks!

    It depends on how much control you want to have over the sales and distribution of your work.

    Art agents and galleries are traditional routes, but you have to realize that your art is just a product, a piece of merchandise to be sold by these folks (not criticizing agents or galleries, just the facts of the marketplace). If you desire more control, I would suggest you consider alternative ways to market yourself, such as direct mail to the kind of customers you wish you reach.

    Without knowing more about your art and where you want it to go, I cannot make any more suggestions.
