Darktwin: Thanks man. Not sure if this is what you meant, (perhaps you really mean I should just use larger brush sizes). Anyway - There's been some weird brush issues that seem to come and go, almost with no explanation. Sometimes it seems as though the "real brush" imaging is turned off...but isn't. Sometimes when I dab the brush on the canvas, instead of getting a cool looking, real-bristle brush, I get something that looks like a "target" symbol...and when i move the brush this target symbol just flows in that direction...but I still see the rings in that brush. I guess that's all hard to visualize...I'll try to save a jpg of it next time i notice it.
Here's the final...or damn-near final version:
Added the clouds, detail, went over the canyon walls one more time

Nice sketchbook you got here. Really like your use of colour. I'll be back to check it out.
sweetness, thos colors are rockin!
Quick_Sketch: sweet. glad you like
Andy Nicho: Thanks for stopping by.
Here's a quick sketch of Ma'at, goddess of balance and truth.
And I reworked the painting from up above with the guy on the horse-like beast.
Here's the final paint of the one from above. i changed things around a bit. Once I opened up the canvas to be a horizontal landscape, I realized that either the horseman...or the landscape was going to have to dominate. Up above they both competed for space and importance. So, I went with the landscape, and made the horseman smaller.
just a small update. went back and painted one of my old sketches. I'm gearing up for San Diego. Printing up my sketchbooks and new portfolio this week. I can't wait!
Great stuff goin' down as usual, Jason. I have agree with Darktwin tho. Make sure that brush size is larger. I have a similar problem of getting picky with small brushes. But it helps to really block out the values. That said, some of these are kind of muddy and could really use s'more highlights and reflected light to sell the forms better. Dont' forget the basics! And don't forget... contrast is king!
...very fine stuff....good one...,
pls see my link n comment on it
Well, it's been a few weeks now since I last posted in here. Thanks for the comments guys, I would've responded but i've been trying to finish up everything for con.
Just wanted to update with a few sketches/paintings that I never got around to posting. The first one is of the Gateway to the 3rd. Realm and in the second one, I redid the giant scarab (the old one really didn't do it for me.)
Hope to see some of you at Con.
nice "necropolis" moods to those last pieces! I'm liking how the color is working out. I hope everything turned out well for you at comic con! keep on posting.
I love the copper shading on the beetle, very nice.
Good luck at the con. Have fun.
Nice stuff. You have a great sense of color. Thanks for posting all this work, it's always informative and inspiring to see the progression of a main idea or story.
