    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.

    thanks for sharing Elwell.

    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.
    more please!

    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)

    just checked out the black horse one.
    the contrast in that one gives it more impact than this one in my opinion.

    both beautiful though!

    I showed your horse to the other half (horse lady) and she's in love with you...bastard!

    its a great horse, intense expression in the eyes, but i wish the same energy went into the girl. she is looking a little plain and generic.

    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.
