Ah ha! you finally share! lovely work i must say you have a wonderful way with the girl on the horse. That piece is just beautiful. The other paintings are quite nice as well but seem to be flatter than your normal painting approaches. It is so subjective but there seems to be less life in them. But still they are wonderful and only show this aspect when in comparison with other pieces of your work I have seen.
love those kitties, awesome color
for crits though, i think the cat in the graveyard piece (i assume its moonlit) could use some darker and more clear shadows on the grass and tombstones, right now it has this look of cloudy winter day.
i love the fire horse one!
haven't seen the earlier piece it's similar to, but i'll try to check that one out.
i'm with DSillustration,
i like simple more alot of times.
i think it makes the art more iconic, seems to have more impact and can sometimes really leave more of a lasting impression on the viewer.
(ok, no more art theory from me)
Fire Horse is superb, i'm amazed at how solid a sense of form and volume the horse has with so little "dramatic" lighting, which could have been overdone given the subject, but isn't at all. my only comment is that to me, the horse seems to be taking it a little too calmly, i'd expect maybe a bit more of a hint of terror at that much flame, but then again, i'm not a horse person, and maybe that's not right for the story being illustrated.
lack of shadows in Charmed to Death is a bit unsettling -- the cat & the books keep levitating a bit
the cat in Witch Way to Murder is so perfectly characterized, a little swagger, a lot of curiosity. also the best rendition of stars i've seen in quite a while -- just the right amount of brilliance for a clear summer night. superb piece.
