Cojac: Thank you you're very kind to say so
NicponimskY: I see what you mean. Noticed with your work the highlights don't blow out as much and it works really well. Hmmm
Metal Fingers: Cheers dude! Big fan so much appreciated!
Parsakoira: Hey dude long time no speakie! Good to have you back and thanks
Looking good GEB, albeit the latest looks a bit like the demon is shying away from the hero (given the relaxed pose of the hero and how the demon is hiding/protecting himself with the arm) - even if I kind of like that if that isn't the idea I'd wash out for it

Yeah I'm yet to sort out the hero. I'm thinking of doing a slightly overhead view so it looks like the demon us bursting up from the depths. Busy again now though so my own work will have to take back seat again
Hello again! Love seeing the iterations on a piece. Please keep doing that, haha. It's helpful for some of us beginners to see.
As far as the recent comments on your use of blacks... I really feel that is a stylistic preference. I never felt like any of your pieces were necessarily weakened because of your use of blacks. My impression is that they're placed in a way that leads the eye from unimportant detail to what you want the user to actually pay attention to.
My two cents, anyways!
Ooh! Busted back down to 4 *s! I'm pretty happy with that to be honest there are far to many stratosperic artistists on here to me awarding the likes of me a hefty 5 *s
Xelar: Yeah I know what you're getting at there. Unfortunately will be a while before I get back to that one but I think I know where I want to take it. Which for me is half the battle!
PeopleEveryday: Cheers babe! You're way too kind
Quick Tarzan sketch
That is one fierce looking demon. Hope you have time to join the chow this week. Seems it would be your theme
...and amazing sketchbook in general.
Something for this weeks CHOW. A fair bit to do to the septre and obviously colour
the rim lighting on the last skull demon, hell all the lighting, its boss! I like the separation you have with your tones in the tarzan piece. It really assists the scene and its story. wonderful as always friend. keep it up.
A bit of colour and refining
cracking work, really like the trazan sketch looks like its going to be a strong painting
Did a bit more. To be honest I'm hammered right noe... Ignore the blade lots needs to be sorted there
Final bit of fiddling and I'm calling it done am sick of it and fancy something new
sick sick sick sick.
I am nit picking here, the right torso(the demon's left side with the shoulder armor.) seems a bit vertical(?) like you have this wonderful dark area to play with. I think you can exaggerate the rib cage slightly to add one more angle/depth in that area of the painting.
I still am blown away by how you go from grey scale to color. It is dark magic as far as i am concerned.
keep up the awesome friend.
You do know that I love when you come over to my SB and curse the s**** out of me, non? Well, I do...
As for the latest, I love the design, tho Crooked there might be on to something. Take note and on, forward!
CrookedHorn: Yep you're bang on with that crit, I go too close to the project
PxelSlayer: I'm always on hand to give you a hard time about your griping
JiR: Thanks man! I don't know which I prefer either.
Ricardo Robles: Thanks dude! Had a lot of fun with that one so glad you like it
Bit more and flopping to check for issues. May make the hero a bit larger in frame
