    Amazing atmosphere! I particulary like 1,3-5, 7, 12 and 13. Have you got traditional sketches as well?

    PHATandy: thank you alot!
    Twisted Nail: thankee Yeah, there are a lot of pencil sketches on my desk but I'm too lazy to scan them all. They are just exercises, anyway. If you really want some examples I'll go scanning for you
    Cyanid: thanks! Aye, I like Linda's style very much. By the way, the sketches here are all from mind...
    ender: thank you very much! You're right. I need to practise figure and face drawing, indeed.

    Any ideas for a detailed version?

    You've just become my favorite artist on this site. Fantastic atmosphere.
    Lightings perfect. Not too detailed which is the way i like it. Something
    has got to be left for the viewer to imagine. Five star material.

    heeeeeeeaaaaaaahh :grasping for breath:
    oh my. the atmosphere of your works are amazing.
    especially (and i mean especially, because all your work
    is amazing) number 12 with the dinosaur has an incredible
    feeling to it. the warm orange-blue light combination works
    really well. reminds me in a way of some dali paintings..

    but the painting with the girl (number 13) is actually
    one of the best compositions i've seen in some time. the
    colours work perfectly together and the overglowing lips
    give a very interesting side to the piece.

    strange that i like two following numbers the most. have
    you done them on the same day or something?

    (i wish this doesn't count as gravediggin, but i just had
    to reply to this thread)

    I think the diagonals in your work sometimes are conflicting and distracting. Especially in the second picture from the top. There the eye does not get proper guidance through the picture. While in your last two pictures your diagonals are maybe a bit too simple ( although the effect is good so who am I to complain ). Great work overall though.

    That fat kid: thank you, my friend

    TheCleaner: thanks a lot! Are you an architect? I'm thinking of studying architecture next year...

    Waruwari: thank you very much!

    Cybetrotter: Yeah, the compositions could be much better in many of my paintings. Thanks for the feedback! It's really appreciated...

    Sorry for the long delay in my postings but I have not much time at the moment. I have to do military service for the next 20 weeks

    Great sense of color, depth and style. You have a knack for digital that I have yet to grasp. I'll definatly be checking back with this one.
    Do you have any traditional media sketches that you can put in?

    Excellent environments, dinosaur and volcano city are really cool. Heads need some work though. I don't get "Weregnolf", it's just a chick with red eyes. Gary Faigin's "Facial Expression" is a really good book.

    I really enjoy your use of color in all of your landscapes. They all have a really nice mood. I enjoy your use of green in a lot of your pictures.
    I'd like to see you try your hand at characters a bit more.

    My favorite so far is that second to last one the two men walking throught the forest.

    Even though I'm more of a character lovin guy, your landscape work rocks !!
    I really like the first image you posted, very simple, yet very strong.

    My favourite however is totally this one.
