    Nice oil paintings. Nice composition. Since these are scanned in you might want to work with the coloring and detail for objects in foreground and background....it would really make 2D appear 3D.

    Didn't know armour was so flammable.


    I didn't think it was possible to be called an artist when you have nothing to say. It's like being a writer who publishes individual words as books and expects to be praised for it.

    Jeff Lafferty: thanks

    Well , I added other oils


    La Gioconda

    From Wikipedia: "La Gioconda" is an opera in four acts by Amilcare Ponchielli set to an Italian libretto by Arrigo Boito, based on Angelo, tyran de Padoue, a play in prose by Victor Hugo, dating from 1835. (This is the same source as Gaetano Rossi had used for his libretto for Mercadante's Il giuramento in 1837).
    First performed in 1876, La Gioconda was a major success for Ponchielli, as well as the most successful new Italian opera between Verdi's Aida (1871) and Otello (1887). It is also a famous example of the Italian genre of Grande opera, the equivalent of French Grand-Opéra.

    Your pencils are lovely but I think your oils have some flaws. In particular, your horses.

    The top paintings where there are horses, you made them pretty big focuses but because they're badly done, they negatively affect the rest of the scene. I think if you decide to use horses again, spending some time studying their anatomy and movement would help with that.
