    Yey! I see the dragon peace is done, and a few other too
    Rock study looks interesting. Good too, but i'd add a few more spaces. Looks very smooth on top. Will do better next time for sure

    Great work! I love the dragon trainer
    The rock studies are cool, but I think that the second one is the best, there the spaciality is described best I think.

    Fantastic work! I can tell you're working hard, and it's definitely paying off.

    For the ogre piece, I think adding a skeleton or silhouette of a body at the bottom of the pit would help it a ton. Then the viewer can easily establish how big the ogre is and how deep the pit is. It would also give the piece a bit of a darker narrative, and make the falling guy's predicament seem more serious.

    I love how you've got him emerging out in to the light though; that bit is exceptionally well handled.

    Looking spiffy, do continue!

    wow, thanks for all the support guys! It's really nice to hear the kind words.

    I'm starting the CHOW 202, and my entry is going to be a 15th century german mercenary footsoldier.

    more to come.

    thanks! Here's a bust study (photo ref). I didn't get a chance to finish it quite as much as I would have liked.... oh well, it's just for learning anyway.

    man, this is great work. really good sketchbook, definitely 5 stars. I'm sure CHOW will turn out great. and the study before it has lovely mood. And I should do studies like the last one myself, seems to be a good thing to do. Keep it going, cheers!

    thanks, guys!

    Here are some metal studies... I might work up a library of these. I used to do more 3D art, and the material editor had a nice grid of material swatches like these little spheres. I could just grab renders from google, but painting each one by hand forces me to understand them a bit better.

    Looking good! Particularly the second set.
    The first one, last ball on the right seems to have to much texture in the brightest of spots.

    Cheers

    progress on the CHOW 202 --- refining the pose / costume. I'm thinking about having the face point more directly toward the viewer, and change the left hand gesture. We'll see.
