    The dragon piece is looking much better dude, id just look into the lighting a little more. With that big black patch its really cutting the image up. Maybe have more visibility in that black area, so we can see some details, and make it more obvious as it goes down to the tail?
    Also the light which is on the tail feels like it should be blocked by the head and neck. Maybe add some more of that strong light running down the side of that leg we can see.

    Looks really good though, the way your work from black n white gives your pictures real good lighting in colour. Keep up the awesome work!

    PHATandy: You're quite right. In fact, you're so right, I think I'm going to start over Thanks for the specific feedback! I really appreciate a critical eye. Also, I checked out your sketchbook --- very nice work....

    And now for the WoW fanart --

    Hey man! Love your stuff! Truly inspiring! Especially your lunchtime stuff, cause it shows how confident your brush strokes and colour choices are.

    Ijust had one question if you don't mind: how often do you start in grayscale, and how often do you start colours? If you start in greytones, when do you do the transition to colours?

    Angroc: Thanks! I almost always start in a single color. Sometime's it's black, sometimes it's brown... really I just need to get to a place compositionally before I deal with color. I think that value plays a huge role in a successful composition, so I like to limit myself to that for a while. After I'm satisfied, I will do some glazing over top in large washes, and finally go to some opaques. At that point, it's harder to make large value shifts in the composition, so hopefully I set the groundwork correctly before the color.

    Here's this lunchtime sketch -- I'm going to start working on a barbarian.

    Camatarul: All of the drawings I do are done in photoshop. sometimes I do a pencil drawing first, though that is rare.

    Here's my progress on the barbarian --- starting with color, though it's got a long way to go:

    Hey, I love your studies! It's very obvious you have your painting technique down. I appreciate the straight-forwardness of your studies, especially those earlier ones on color theory, they were quite helpful.

    Keep up the good work!

    Mischeviouslittleelf coming from you... wow. Thanks so much! There will be more fantasy art where that came from....

    Nadesican: Thanks! I like studies because you don't have to do any design. Painting a study takes a lot of concentration, but I never once have to ask "how should I make this part look?". Some days, that's a nice change of pace


    I've still got quite a lot to do on this one, but i worked some more this evening.

    Nice works Matt. For the last piece, I thought there was something wrong with the hand but I tried it and it seems possible. It feels a bit awkward because of the strong angle (wrist) I think. Anyway nothing big .

    I love your work. the colors, shading, the forms, basically everything.
    Do you use PS to do all that? or do you sketch first?

    lyno: you're totally right -- thanks for the feedback! I think im going to need a photographed pose for this new hand...

    aphrodite: I'm a 100% photoshop man. VERY rarely I'll make a physical sketch first, but usually I just work straight in PS. The cintiq helps with the lines for sure.

    Sublimus Thanks! It's cool to know the progress is visible -- I've been really pushing it recently.... not a lot of sleep, though.

    Ok this one is not quite finished, but I have to be done for the day.

    Whoa impressive work.

    I really enyou the how "lite" your paintings are.
    About your latest pic, i think that the previous version was way better.
    The final lacks that uniqe feel that original had.

    Great Sketchbook Matt Kohr, the axe looks great. Maybe work on the blade a bit more and give it a more metal and used look?
