    nice work overall... but damn your watercolors are sexy!

    comixnut - thanks for the kind words. It feels slow going at times (..most), but I enjoy the ride.Btw, that half-orc was from the DSG

    sone_one - many thanks -- i aim for sexy

    ----------------------

    well, finally.. some drawing from life!

    my gf and I are starting up with a new local drawing group. it's been a year since the last (my first) group. the models (two of em) were terrific.

    from life - 4, 5 min gestures
    Sketches and Studies by Craig Houghton - [11/16]

    after the gestures we moved to a multiple session pose. next week we'll continue with it. I'm not so sure I like carrying a work over between sessions, so I'll probably just draw from a number of different angles.

    thanks for looking

    Snappledap the Dazzling, female gnome

    Nineveh - Many thanks for the kind words! There'll definitely be more.

    corky13 - Glad you like em! And, yeah there's been some head issues. (not counting the tinwoman which is a whole other story

    -----------------------------

    This was from today's DSG

    The topic was: Gnome Wizard.

    I figured that there must be female gnomes out there right? in the d&d descrip gnomes are 3 ft tall stout fellows with brown-white hair and bright blue eyes. This one happens to be a female wiz

    Here we see Snappledap the Dazzling using her famous snap charm to distract some unlucky foe while she brings the sling around to brain em'!

    here's a full-res detail

    Sketches and Studies by Craig Houghton - [11/16]

    I'll save the background, and it'll be a dark one to help with the glow etc, for another day. I spent way too long on this, but I enjoyed it. I'll probably also texture a bit.

    So, yep a background is on the way.

    Thanks for looking!

    Rodrigo - THanks. Yeah, it's true about her feet. They're small too, but perspective-wise they're down-below. They definitely needed more attention. They were bare with sandals at one point, but the toes were wonky so she got a cloth wrap.

    ----------------

    I did a quicky for today's DSG

    The topic was: D&D Character, Human Rogue

    I had too much fun with the Grainy Sketcher pen in Painter IX

    Well, I've been working on this a half-hour here and there for about ... half a year. It's getting a bit closer to finished, so I'm posting a so-far

    Today's DSG entry

    Hey all. Today the DSG topic was Drow (Evil) Elf.

    I didn't go with the usual dual sword weilding drow with token spider in the background. This is a drow-chick with her diary. Hey, at least the ink looks more or less bloody

    in the first 2 ones you have disproportions...
    the hands are too small... and too thin...
    the last one is better! but the shadding on the arm and the shadow of the arm on the body are the same - and that's bad in reading the plans...

    the copy after bouguereau is the best i've seen! He is one of my favorit artists! Good inspiration...
