    I always maintain that I don't like watercolor, but I do like your watercolors. At least the two above that I just looked at. I think it has a lot to do with the fact that your images have well-defined lines and edges, which my eyes need to process an image. Without those lines and edges, things are just a splash of color, and it's like... meh.

    Anyhow, beautiful job.

    Wow! I must say I very much like your paintings. I'm a big fan of watercolors and aspire to learn how to paint with them myself. Do you have an recommendations as far as reading on the subject that helped you when you were learning?

    Wow guys, thanks so much for all the support! Very much appreciated!

    BickeringDog: I don't think starting out with a book is the best way to learn watercolour. The unbeatably best way would be to start in a workshop or with somebody who can actually teach you some of the basics. If you don't have that, I believe it's easier to find out some of the basics by try and error before consulting a book. Watercolour is a very hands on experience. No book can teach you what watercolour does; you can only find that out for yourself, and then you can consult a book for tips and tricks.

    I've linked a few tutorials above that I've put together, maybe they'll be a bit of help. Here are the links again:

    Two new ones. Still Tolkien. I got an invitation to exhibit my art at this year's Return of the Ring Event in Loughborough, England, in August - so I try to get some more new Tolkien work done until then.

    And my first dragon in ages. An excuse to do scales, really. Thanks to several horned, dragon, and armadillo lizards for modelling.

    Love your works!

    Not just the watercolors are top, but the lines too. So precise!

    Thanks a lot!

    Gah, I wish I had anything new to show. At the moment, school is eating up all my time. School, and Diablo III. *cough*

    Finally something new worth showing. I'm quite happy with how these liquid watercolours push me to explore new colour schemes. Nice to leave the well worn paths.

    Thanks for looking!

    I love the way you do scales. If you ever feel inspired to do a muscular reptilian humanoid with dark scales I'd love to see it.
