    Thats nice! I thought you were using watercolour as well. Nice effect you've achieved there.

    Thanks a bunch guys. I try to keep a traditional look, but honestly I'm not too hot with tradition stuff, maybe alright with markers, but any kind of real paint drives me nuts, so I try to get that look alternativly. =]

    Great pic. The sweeping curve of cloud is very nice.
    I really like your idea of doing twin panel around a door or something.
    This would be really fun to paint, I wish you'd give it a try. Just go to Home Depot and get two pieces of shelving, maybe 14" x 36", primer them and go crazy. Use a big brush especially for the background, be loose and sloppy, have fun.
    One big reason why lots of people hate painting is they think you have to use nothing but triple 0 brushes. I'd probably do this whole thing with a 4" house painting brush for the background and a # 10 filbert for the rest.
    Anyways that's just what I'd do.

    These are quite neat, and would be a good display either as a poster or in two separate paintings on either side of a piece of furniture, as I believe you had in mind. I especially like the dimentions of the painting. Making the painting tall helps elongate the cheetahs, making them appear more lithe. (And since they are the fasted creatures on the planet, lithe is perfect.)

    Keep up the good work. I have no crits for these.

    Nice paintings, really like the cheetahs too. A thing that bothers me is that I don't really know if you were going to build a ornamental 'Jugendstil'-like piece or a realist one. Because I think the hybrid you did doesn't fully work. The clouds especially appear quite stylized but than again aren't pushed far enough. the symmetry works pretty good but than again the cheetahs should be either a bit more different or really mirrored (that would work better via stylization...). I think a few more strong decisions would help the piece a bit.
    Keep it up, man...
