    Thanks, its deciding what to put in it is what I am struggling with hehe!

    Armor and perspective is my nemesis!
    Was unhappy with elf girl's arms (I drew hands too small) and have yet to decide what to do with them. She will have arms in the final.

    what i think is flippin up your armor is that its flat, try practicing in drawing shapes in 3d, oh and I think the guys head is a bit big.

    anyway your rendering is superb! ^__^

    Beautiful rendering- those metal ladies are fantastic
    Shame about the arms, but it's good to see some of them have found them

    your work is beautiful, especially the rendering. i love post #5 even if she doesn't have arms. your chow of the metal ballerina is sweet (i like the first one better i think). how long does it usually take you to finish a piece?

    It really depends on how much detail I feel like doing. The chow ones took approx a week of evenings - because they had a start date and a deadline - so you are looking at 10-30 hours for those. Often its the preparation and lines/sketch/composition which takes longer than the rendering for me.

    The incubus and the flintlock pistol took about 4-5hrs each.

    My problem is I'm easily distracted by new ideas and concepts, so I will start something, put the idea down, then draw something else which means few things get finished. If it was for work or I had to focus on a single piece (like for CHOW projects) then I would have more to show.

    Commission for a friend. Armour and perspective is definitely my weakest area - must keep trying though. :3

    Oracle pic started off as a study of a sculpture from a Danish Museum I visited a few months back. The hand is an accurate ref, the hips are improvised because the original statue had cloth drapes down the front.

    Really like your work. I particularly like the rendering of the oracle and the elf girl. I also think that the composition of the armor guy is really good. The elements are well rendered. I think the little bit of flatness comes because the arms are more forward and appear to be of the same thickness as the chest. Still beautiful and I can only hope to draw as well some day.

    PS. One odd thing about the armor is the wing/ head backing? It is split down the middle and so wouldn't stop a sword swing from cleaving his brain into a right and left hemi.

    Anyway awesome stuff.

    A little flat at times, but still stunningly beautiful concepts, line art, and detail. Amazing job. Just watch out on that lighting.

    Mountain Photo Study

    Okay so I need some environment concepts for my portfolio because aside from an enchanted forest I painted last year to test some new brushes, its not something I have ever tried to get into or develop.

    So I have decided to do some 30mins-1hr landscape speed paints as warmups.
