Good afternoon .
whoami Interesting swimming device you invented for the escape, I have this association with Jules Verne inventive mind. More of it because ofhuge old map he stole and the interesting gesture of he giant trying to grab the shining track of left from speed. Figure of the thief is wonderful so full of life and motion.
viag Is it happy return of expedition? Feeling of relief in this picture.
RobRey Very expressive, the interaction between main character andher hallucination is huge, although they are at distance with each other, the connection between them is awesome, eyes just travel from those twoYoints. It is very involving piece too. I feel desperation and fear very strongly.
Dougbot Is the escape on the other side and she needs to go through all the beasts in order to survive? I wish the colors were more exciting, they are just very calm, and subdued, good body language though.
redehlert That's a biological weapon of new type, to sprinkle ink into chaser eyes and mouth. Hungry? Eat this! . Very nice feeling of deepness of ocean, the very bottom of it in your entry, Dave. Gruesome and exciting and mysterious and adventures.
Shamagim That's funny. They were messing with a huge sleeping baboon, climbing in and out of his nose, so is it escape? or they are flying far away against their will after natural sneeze? .Wish you worked more on this piece, the baboon got more attention and he has more details about his character.
nacho very sweet, little child in eyeglasses escaping from peers pressure in a quiet place and drawing supermen to calm his nerves. Nice mood in this one, a bit sad and compassionate. Brushstrokes and colors are very comforting.
dreckster That's cute, bad guy is escaping from a funny teddy bear. I like the idea, wish you worked more to combine ll the details and objects in the composition it is a bit raw and spotty, i think.
theincredibleandy Wings are beautiful in the dragon and twist of its body, composition is not the best though in my opinion, too much of the empty space, I think. I like the texture of the shore from above, looks truthful in the day time lighting.
Sinix I like the style of your entry, very laconic and elegant and I like the french title. makes it even more stylish. I like colors and fast manner to paint. Just wonder if he escaped because some explosion in the prison or he ran away from the train?
shelly wan Absolutely agree with some one's opinion in the lounge about your entry, it has a very strong association and feel of the Stanley Kubrick's "Barry Lyndon".
Although your story is apparently a fantasy and his was a very cruel reality with big money and rich heirs involved. still there is the same mood in this dark room. The very strong feeling of manipulation, a lie, of something very phony.
It is not random that the room is dark, it is easy to hide that feelings are not genuine at all, and that's there is a plot against the fragile looking man. His life forces are dried up, he looks almost half dead. I think he knows that he was being lied to, that they lead him somewhere against his will, manipulating him, but he is so past of the happy times when he was so light hearted and proud with attention of all those brilliant effective women, chatting and laughing like careless bird. He is stuck now and deprived of his own will and he is slowly drowning in the lie they wrapped him in.
Wonderful expression of the faces, and atmosphere of the 18th century, flirting, brilliant on the surface, cruel in the deep, with abundant flatter to smooth and succeed in the destination, goal.
These women are great actresses, their poses and faces are very precise, they know what they want and what buttons they need to press for needed effects.
You added some fantasy details to painting like slippery snake bodies and tails, I think it adds to the sensation of something fraud more than to the story. And it is intriguing. I think that's why you added it . To make us wanting to know why? . Wonderful manipulation of your viewer from your side in my opinion.
I agree with observation that hands of the man and woman whispering sweet lies in his ear are not very well done. Maybe you did the hand of the woman to look nonhuman on purpose, but the man hand idefinitely needs more painting, I think. And the lacy jabot of the man a bit too light I think, although it does draw my eye to him and to his dead face eventually. A bit darker shade would do the same effect though. I think.
Although canary is escaping, there is no escape for the man in this richly embellished room, he is an empty shell with stolen soul already.
One more association, the world outside of the room is real, inside is phony.
gorillagrin looks like inspired by world we live in, I feel worrisome and sad looking at the desperate attempt of those people to escape. But air baloon is not competitions to high speed planes.
Technically speaking I wish you add to the air balloon more volume, highlights, because without that it looks flat and the perspective looks a bit strange.
Shadoman Cool feeling of motion and speed and chaos in your picture but I always wonder when I see using shades in one picture which are impossible to exist in one reality together, in my opinion.
This blue should be mixed with shade of orange, or be warmer. There is no wall or barrier in the air,the temperature of these colors should be the same. There should be feeling of one reality in the picture, even if you wanted to show that they need to make a little more efforts to be on the safe side.
ploboyko That's a very beautiful illustration, I wish it was more book with pictures like this. Very tasteful and elegant and a real pleasure to look at these textures and colors and magic.
Great composition! Maybe it would be better to define a silhouette of the evil spirit more, I didn't see his body right away, the released spirits kind of blocked it.
Gloominati The action is there, but you need to define forms better and use colors more expressively, in my opinion.
TheBrave Ohh, I still don't know if it is OK to escape from reality like this. It looks so crazy from the distance, but so sweet when you are the main character. It is pathetic and gives you total freedom from any doubts and insecurities. You can be anything you want, just train your bottom muscles to sit longer and hand not to shake in needed moment. Like any addiction it frees you from old troubles and drowns you in new ones. Nice composition and faces expression.
Loomer Man, you just can't find a quiet place to relax these days, those idiots will find you anywhere. Well he was sleeping peacefully, but not for too long because some people have constant itching to create a trouble. He was OK with them building sand castles on his back, but they did something real stupid. Screamed loudly into his ear, or tried to take some piece of him as a memory gift.
Funny escape, wonder if he remembers where they parked their space ship.
Fellah Beautiful flight, Simon, even though it seems that bullets are useless for these kind of flying rocks. Shooting up close and I think she just lost the balance, stability of the flight. You drew them approaching the couple very fast, scarily fast. In one second they were like two dragons away, and the next moment she needs to shoot right into it.
And I think in the last picture the creature is riding the dragon itself.
Beautiful attractive people as always in your art.
Never saw the creature like this a rock and improvise mouth like tightly tied rope. interesting. And no eyes which makes them very evil looking.
My favorite the first picture with a beautiful flight, a lot of air in it, makes my lungs wider, and the picture with interesting pose of the women looking back and kicking the chaser with her foot.
Like the beautiful tail of the dragon the most and white gentle neck of the beautiful girl.
JoshuaTheJames I like the descending motion in this picture and characters , but I wish you put more detail and information in this picture. Nevertheless this slipping down the hill feeling is terrific. really involving.
Dirty_C What a creepy room and the whole experiment. Real sad feeling of hopeless situation with nothing to be change. You make my heart feel fear and disgust and horror. And I think these cold crystal colors add to the strange sensation of something being out of any control. Something that was already established long time ago and was proceeding without any interpretation and moral regrets... Until now...
But I really can't imagine what will happen next, the baby looks so weak and helpless.
I like the feeling of confusion and realisation of system not being perfectly planned though.
clubb I think figures are a bit too stiff and rigid for all the action scene.
DavePalumbo . You are making this book irresistible, using all kinds of ways to plant seeds of interest into the head of your viewer. It has everything to loose my mind over it. Adventure, beautiful women, a one-eyed hero ( chicks dig scars, eh?), a danger, evil creature. I'm surprised not seeing little following text after the entry "you can buy this book for just 19.99 at Amazon. com . Author is yours truly Dave Palumbo. Profits might be shared with many charities organisations.
Well, what can I add, the composition is great and the face of the main character is real gold, so interesting and full of personality. A bit of arrogant too , which is very good for any story .
yeah it was a great way to escape before Internet.
Faces are great in the entry, very precise expressions.
Well, when it is literal, no need to say it in words. Lighting it is wonderful, and colors. In the second I wonder if the bums really have their own responsibilities too? I thought they are close to nirvana state when it is not raining or snowing. Well, live and learn, everyone has his own heavy thoughts to escape. Like loving some beastly women and need to drown his brains dead for forcing himself. One more inhale and I'm all yours, honey.

Man, you got me with words like this, I'm all here here sitting in your hand with open mouth. I love puzzles . Well, I would like to try more, but not sure I will crack this secret code. I'm afraid we have different life experience and culture references, I don't see totally different associations from my first one. If you don't mind I would like to think loud a bit more.
Well, not to take the characters literally but assuming that you chose woman and man for your story on purpose, I would think he is killing his old beliefs, maybe his old feeling, attachment, trust, love.
Yeah, it might be he is murdering his adoration or he is killing his old religious feeling. As far as I know this thrust with sword under ribs was kind of ... how to say it... noble gesture in murdering business. it follows with immediate death without long suffering. Christ and the other two were killed in this fashion after long day of hanging on cross.
The feeling he killed was reborn again but in new incarnation. totally new, an opposite.
I see of course hint on Bible story but really don't know what to think. I don't think the cross on his back is random. The woman, the spirit is beautiful and I can see you want my sympathy on her side. Well, I can only come with story of long obsesion and total diametrical change of the mindset, destruction of old beliefs, or old and long time adored priorities. I see it as cordially change of the mindset of the person. The woman is his view, his attitude to the world, kind of destruction of the trust and belief in beauty of the world.
That's all, I'm sorry. I need to work at my education, apparently I'm lacking in it. Maybe you will tell me, privately .
Thank you for the kind words and you are funny and sweet and witty, and come on, your image is one of the best, it's just I'm a bit dumb.

Whatever Sve, you are a deep soul swimming in a shallow universe, echoing like the whales of wisdom,...or something.
Thanks for your efforts and words. You should know by reading everyones post it was appreciated.

Thank you, my dear Mr. Visions, but I heard an opposite opinion about my thinking abilities and really it is better to be realistic about yourself. . I can't think of anything else about Posh entry, I know that you are believer, maybe you can interpret this one. I would love to hear your thoughts.
