    You can just put them in seperate tags ie:

    [attach]blah blah1[attach]

    [attach]blah blah2[attach]

    Semms to work for me.

    Quick update for today, this is a cd cover for a band called Buswell, the single is called Don't Go Wasting Time. The cover reflects what went on in the video, it was quite surreal from the stills I've seen!

    Thanks Myako, glad you picked up on the atmosphere! You're absolutely right about the title being appropriate for artists! It's so easy to get distracted sometimes!

    Speaking of that, time to get back to work!

    Hey dave! That's really nice!

    You might have cleaned up some of the edges surrounding the girl to help seperate her from the background and background strokes a little bit perhaps? A little bit of contrast can go a long way. Just a thought.

    Hope you are doing well, cheers!

    Cheers Tom, you're absolutely right. the image has gone to print, but I'll remember that for next time!

    I've been asked to draw Iron Man for someone and after looking for inspiration (I'm not really familiar with Iron Man) I realised there are about 16 iron man poses and that's it! So, not wanting to go with convention, I decided to go for something a little more interesting...

    This scan is from this months issue of Advanced Photoshop's "Peer Pressure" section. Be sure to look at the big orange circle in the image, hehe...

    Heya Myako, ask and ye shall receive. (BTW everybody feel free to go over and increase my vote in the CHOW 44 thread. I'm not going to win, but it'd be nice to have a respectable score! )

    Hmmm, no replies for a while
    Let's see if this makes a difference *fingers crossed*
    I've been waiting to post this for ages now, this is the final image of the masterclass colouring tutorial I did for Advanced Photoshop magazine which is out in the uk now! (I'm not sure how long the US has to wait sadly) Go and grab your copy now!

    That's awesome dude, probably the best coloring I've seen you do even. Small crit as I'm not a fan of asspats , You might consider curving the shadow caused by skullkid's leg to follow the form of the ballon a bit more.

    Some of you may have heard of a little magazine called ImagineFX, I think it may be quite popular some day...

    Here's a scan from the latest issue, with some art you may find familiar:

    So here I am!

    Dave, I don't know why this little people has visited your sketchbook, I think you have a good comic style going on and most of your pieces have a clean lines that you should always try to achieve. I really like your spartan piece did you use any reference for it.

    Dude, that is nice! I definitely like the textures you've got going on in the last two pieces - didn't realise you'd made it into ImagineFX either - nice work dude.

    Hey the Rentals piece is really nice too. I really like those understated shades.

    My old sketchbook used to have a lot more guests, but I was much more active on the forums in those days, sadly I don't have as much time to devote around here due to work (which I suppose isn't that bad a thing now that I think about it!)

    For the spartans piece I watched a factual dvd about them that the client lent me (really interesting stuff actually) and then afterwards I watched it again a few times sitting with a sketchbook in my hand, so there was quite a lot of reference, and then I looked at some of Drew Struzans work for influence of the layout.

    Hey Christian! Thanks for stopping by again mate. You managed to reply whilst I was writing, hehe. Glad you like the textures, I've been trying not to rely on overlay layers as much and using textured brushes instead, apparently it's paying off. You're the first person from ca to notice I was in IFX believe it or not! Congrats on winning you place btw--I think I said that in the London thread, but I'll say it again just in case.

    Finally got around to colouring the Iron Man piece. Hope you all like it.

    Hey, if you're reading this, could you please rate this thread? My old sketchbook used to get loads more attention due to the stars rating, and it'd make things more motivating for me here. At times I feel like I'm talking to myself!

    Cheers guys,
    Dave
