    Well, Pindurski, I don't think I've ever commented here before, but I have been following your progress for a while now. It's been a pleasure to see you develop your skills and produce some truly kick-ass work. Thanks for letting us know where else we can find you.

    All the best.

    This really knocked the wind out of my sails. I don't want to be a part of supporting this crap. On the other hand I don't have many places to go for relevant criticique or just to talk to mature people about art. I guess that I will be keeping a low profile for a while an look around for other forums that could work for me,

    Good luck with everything Pindursku.

    Uiriamu, thanks dude Yeah, I'll hang out in both places for now.


    Some haphazard environment sketches to give some thought as to how I might bring the environment to life.

    Base line drawing done though there are some anatomy issues, but I finally landed on a composition I like. Time to go in and start designing and refining.

    Ah so you're back on CA

    Looking forward to seeing where you take the Conan piece. His pose looks sort of strange, not so powerful, but you will probably make it work! Really nice to also see all the stuff you do before the actual painting - lots of hours put into each piece.

    Thanks for the welcome-back Agerkvist... Yeah, couldn't stay away. I've learned by now that my sketches no matter how refined always end up different once I start painting... But good observation

    Great to see you back Pindurski! I´ve missed your awesome paintings. They show a lot of improvement. I left some feedback on one of them. Hope it is helpful.

    Thanks fantasy some thoughtful feedback there. I will however defend her torso. I don't imagine a barbarian as soft and feminine. Ripped and hard as nails (Crossfit like) is how I would envision someone like this. It doesn't fit everyone's taste but it's my style there's a generic look to most every depiction of how women in art look... More then 90%of the time they look soft and mushy like someone who has never seen battle. So I suppose I am trying to carve out my own little niche

    Yes I totally understand your point. Keep in mind that I said her body looks too masculine compared to her soft face. From a design point of view it seemed inconsistent to me. For this body type I imagine a tougher face like that of your gladiator woman.

    Quick sketch... pencil sketch are interesting because I don 't use an eraser so I have to live with what i've done. This is particularly fun because sometime I muck up and have to find a creative way to fix it... though in this case Conan's face was unsalvageable

    Hey Pindurski. Nice to have you back.

    I really like the Escaping death piece and the secret keeper. Those really speaks to me. What I like about your art is that you always attempt to tell a story.

    I noticed that in the majority of your pictures you rotate the picture plane. I suppose that is one way to make the picture more dynamic, I just don't care for it that much.

    Thanks for stopping by Frida. To each their their own The angling of the horizon is certainly a device I like to use.

    More... changing up some composition and muddling with values... still a long way to go.

    I think that the angling of the horizon looks fine don't get me wrong. I'm just wondering if you are exploring other options with diagonals compositions without changing the horizon. Obviously you doo, like in the impaler painting but anyhow.

    Check out this example by Gustave Dore,

    Stephen -- thanks for stopping by – appreciate the positive feedback
    Frida -- thanks for the challenge I'll give that kind of composition some thought.

    Still dicking around with this...

    Thanks Bobby.

    I feel like I've drawn and re-drawn Conan about a 1000 times... that being said... each time it gets a smudge easier... slightly better... and takes less time to sketch out. I should now be able to do this pose in my sleep

    More... a screaming baby cut into my art time this morning, but managed to make a lot of tiny adjustments and work on one of the priest dudes. Normally I would flesh out the main characters first, but I tend to get burnt out and only put half ass effort into the background and secondary character... not so with this one I am working from the background foreword so hopefully the overall quality will be better.

    Hey Pindurski - lots and lots of work going into these.

    Your anatomy, gesture, values are excellent. You've really got that stuff nailed. But I think that perhaps it's time to graduate over to 100% colour. i.e. you seem to do these uber polished grey scale images and then colourise them. I'm not arguing with the results, it looks good, but I think it could look better still. If you went full colour right away I think you'd be taking things to the next level in your art journey.

    In the year that I've been away, you have definitely amped things up. Well done!

    Oh and if you want to watch me paint live I recently got introduced to this thing called picarto TV... It's nice to do art and share it - if you have any questions it's great to talk too! I'm painting pretty much 12 hours a day so you'll most likely find me - unless I'm eating

    Thanks for the vote of confidence... straight to colour... What? And take away my safety blanket? Perhaps, that might be my next step, although I'd have to alter my process considerably... that too is warm and familiar like and old, well-worn, cozy and soothing blanket. Thanks for the challenge.

    Well... I was doing what you're doing for a bit. It IS much easier. You can get some sick detailing and lighting, but then I saw some jaime jones stuff and got it in my head to be all old school painterly

    I think that ultimately it looks better. Something that benedikt says he does is he goes colour but then sticks a desaturate layer on top that he can switch on and off so that he gets the best of both worlds.

    Awesome man, keep pushing it! The early phases are always the toughest but it will pay off! Def a Conanesque vibe - reminds me of the beginning of the film, but this time conan is being granted... REVENGE!
