    Wow, well deserved 5 stars, everything is perfect, lineart and colors.

    I think my fav is also the witch and the rabbit but the one with the dead peacock is crazy good too. Thanks for posting.

    Beautiful Entry and sp, sorry if someone's already asked this but are you working professionally? If not you should be. It's great to see someone take an old style and put a modern twist to it. Your very talented.

    You make it impossible to crit, really you do. That calender piece is fantastic in both line art and in color.

    Whoo! Thanks for all the comments, really appreciate it!

    Mr. Joe: The rapidographs I have came in a set (I can't remember what the sizes are, but it contains 8 pens, I think). You don't change tips on these - I'm not sure if there are some that do that - but the tip is the expensive part anyway. They come empty, you fill them yourself. Actually, whenever you're going to leave them unused for a while, you should empty them out yourself. Otherwise the ink will get gummed up in the works and things get messy. The ink is pretty inexpensive and they are easy to fill (just do it over the sink or something, or it will get all over you). As for sizes, I can't remember what I use, but most art stores will have sample pens for you to try out before you buy. If not, I'd by some cheap microns in various sizes and try drawing with them for a while: you'll find that you use some sizes a lot more than others. Then you can make a decision regarding the expensive pens.

    bojee: Not a professional. I'm in science, actually. Art is just a hobby, but thanks for the compliment!

    lol, art is just a hobby....

    I noticed your contribution to the all girls calendar at the finally finished sectio a while ago and thought: Well I'm not the one who buy chick calendars of any description, but an artbook with this persons work I would actually consider buying.

    Now I know who did it and heck there goes another bookmark. Absolutely fantastic work.

    your work is seriously captivating, looking at it makes me feel like a 5 year old again... the atmosphere to it... with the naturalistic emphasis, humble yet vibrant and enticing colour pallette, and beauitufl ideas... you really are a good artist, i was already warming up to digital art, but this... its beautiful, you have my umm... whats the word, lol, awe i guess.lol

    Not so much a compliment, just speaking the truth. Art's different if your doing it professionally, but if you ever want a change of pace I think you'd do well. Either way it's nice to have your work here.

    I second that. If you ever want to do art professionally, I'm sure you'd do incredibly well - I think your calendar entry was head and shoulders above the rest, and your work overall is consistently lovely.

    I may have to borrow that overlaying paper texture trick one of these days...

    Can we have a bigger scan of this one? Great.

    Really in love with your work, the little details, the returning flowers, grasses and feathers. Absolutely love it. (Wish I had a larger english vocabulary, cause these aren't the words I want to use.)

    A tiny update (sorry it's not more), but the PhD work is all done - I'm a doc now - so maybe there will be more art in the near future. That is, If Christmas doesn't completely derail my free time.

    Congrats! Hope you're partying with your new diploma right now.

    I love those swirls in Chamber's coat, BTW - very Klimt-y.

    Blue, apsa-friggin-loutely beautiful gallery!! I love how your watercoloring comes out... I haven't even touched on mastering traditional painting, much less digital. I've got some stuff in the works, but looking through here makes me want to do even more. I'm faving this thread, and I hope to see more of you around. Great stuff lady!

    Heh, I actually suck at real watercolors - mostly I just use it to fill in the lines. Faking it is so much easier. Hmmm, Grendel_grack might be a good person to look up, she's got some mad skills with the watercolors, so she might be able to help you out. And thanks!

    Well, here's a very very pathetic update: just a little bit of linework that I'll be finishing up in the next few days. The dragon is recycled from another piece, even. How's that for pathetic?

    Thanks for all the comments, again!

    Don't said it's pathetic, Doc' ! There's nothing wrong with recycling your own art, in my opinion. I like it a lot, in fact.
    Cheers.
