Is that for the sequel to Snakes on a Plane? Snakes on a Head.
I like the boat best Tristan. At first I was thinking just a tad more color in the water or BG would look good, but I like the way the boat pops. That'll look nice on a bookrack.
These look a whole lot better in person
both are great pieces. my only crit is on the boat one.
the boat is painted well, but its a bit bare. Where are the chests, coils of rope, and paraphernalia of sailboats?
love the wave its on
awesome paintings tristan, the snake one is fabulous. what was your timeline on these paintings?
I went to school with a girl who was half gorgon...she was so ugly it made you wanna' get stoned.
That's a great painting, it creeps me out. Kids will love it.

Sweeeet! I would love to see more close-ups like that. . .
I think you are awesome, and I wish you the best in your endeavors, but I am tired of repeating myself, I am very busy with my new baby, and I am no longer a regular participant here, so please do not contact me to ask for advice on your career or education. All of the advice that I have to offer can already be found in the following links. Thank you.

Wow... I can't believe I've missed every thing in this thread the past year! For me, it's like finding a pot of gold. The thing I like about your pics is they have that "real oil painting" feel to them even when they're reproduced. They usually feel soft with ambient lighting, easy on the eyes, easy to enjoy the subleties.
The lighting in the graveyard scene with the kat is fantastic. The lighting in the boat seems pretty similar. One is calm and the other gives an exciting atmosphere with the waves and the storm. Yet similar lighting used appropriately.
Awesome work, Elwell. Your always an inspiration and I appreciate all the input you give. Your advice is always taken seriously and analzed over and over till i get it. ... heheh.
that medusa chick is really awesome Tristan... I love her eyes...
Mainloop- man i must be dyslexic.. cuz i thought you asked how many people are on lsd
Finally, here's a cover for a YA novel about a girl who hits puberty and has snakes sprout out of her head. Turns out she's half gorgon
I think I read this book. Or possibly a very similar short story. Anyway, excellent job on the picture.
those snakes are great!!
I know I'm resurrecting a rather out-of-date thread here, but I just ran across it.. and I have to say, this is just phenomenal work
Btw, Elwell, you are in fact one of the reasons I joined CA. Having seen some of your art on the Shannon Assoc. site, I recognized the Black Horse thumbnail up at the top, and I figured ConceptArt must be a pretty cool place if artists of your caliber hang out here.
Any advice for an eager young space cadet who would love to get into book illustration?
Look, see! Nifty art! http://www.conceptart.org/forums/showthread.php?t=99803
