Absolutely stunning, Ralph. Thanks for posting them at such a generous resolution too - you can really appreciate the care and skill that's gone into the work at this size. Fantastic.

Thanks for all the comments.
alti: I do enjoy trying to put a strong narrative into my work, and am pleased that comes over for you.
stevethomas: Thanks very much. The 100 HO was great fun to work on. It was great to be able to reinvisage this established D&D (and classically inspired) beastie. Glad you liked the outcome.
Bomba: Thanks. Yep, the detail does tend to creep in there, doesn't it
Matt Dixon: Thanks a lot Matt. Oh, and thanks also for covering my ass on the sizing. I was definitely aiming to show the detail, rather than, ahem, failing to resize them from my blog
thegrayslayer: Much appreciated, thanks.
Antonesko: Pleased you think so - thanks a lot.
Thnaks again, and glad you've all enjoyed seeing these.

Thanks Beelow, Max Martelli, Bill and Pixie Trick for your comments. Glad you like these.
I do try and get movement and drama into my work, and I'm happy that is coming over.

There are no such things as bad art, just tight deadlines.

You really went all out on the hundred Handed one didn't you?
These are oils right?
I feel like one image is missing, where it says:

Pavel Sokov; Thanks. You're right I did especiall yenjoy working on the 100 handed one. i do enjoy multiple figuire compositions, and even though this was an amalgam, it sort of counts as lots of figures
These are all painted in Acrylics.
Hmm, not sure why the image wasn't showing. I re-uploaded it, and now it seems okay.
theUNKNOWNsketcher; Thanks very much.
Eraiasu: Thanks. All acrylic, with the odd digital tweak when scanned.

Thanks Lotet & [houn]
Between you you've summed up where I am coming from - I love trying to create big sweeping images, with a strong narrative streak. Hopefully the viewer will be rewarded by revisiting the images several times, and find new details on each occasion.

Great works! I love them, especially the small adornment of characters are very imagination, styles is composed, it's wonderful!

ksky: Thanks. Yeah, I do like adding all the little bits of detail to a character's kit. It's the extra stuff that seems to make them more real within the game worlds for me.
tjh: Time spent does obviously vary from piece to ppice, but the large ones might take a couple of days to sketch and then a further 5+ days to paint.
DANKA: Thanks very much. That's one of my favourites too
