    Not quite sure if I should enter it in ChOW or not.

    dude, nice quick movement on that topic! good saturation levels on the clouds. they're almost, but not quite fighting with the figure. biggest thing to work on would be the anatomy of the face. I'll be looking forward to seeing this guy develop.

    hey mike....are you still on separate layers with the chow entry?
    if so, there may be some playing room with saturation levels and adding some atmospheric haze to get some more distance in place. the only other thing is a question if the 'bard' would be chattin' up the apocalypse on a clear blue day or if it would be forboding with greens and ochres and so forth.
    cheers!

    Ok Dave, I threw some haze in there just for you...and I threw an overlay layer in PS that made things seem like he's standing in the morning sun a bit more.
    In terms of when and why i picked this particular time and place. It's really to zig instead of zag with the rest of the group. I know that everyone in chow and their brother is going to go for dark brooding, skull infested pics. Why not then have a clear lovely fairy tale kind of morning with the full knowledge that in just a few more notes...everything is going to go to shit. What's that line from BladeRunner?...."Wake up...it's time to die!"
    That was really the impetus behind the look...besides it gave me more of an excuse to render more clouds...
    Thanks for all the advice bro...keep it coming.
    My best to ya

    Ben:Ahh you're too kind bro. I wish i knew where this all was coming from...but dare not question it...just letting it happen. Can't wait to
    see what you've been bustin your hump on in terms of the "Gods at War". Best of luck with Spectrum.

    Jokisalo: many thanks!

    Brendan: Thanks boss...it happened so damned quick i really didn't have time to blink. Again...not questioning it...just rolling with it.

    If there is one thing you are extremley good at, it's making a character a character.

    Brendan: Thanks boss...yeah...I want in the next iterations to really go through the same steps as the guys in the book and push a couple of these characters. Now which ones to pick....gahhh!

    MikeV.: Absolutely bro...will drop that line ASAP!

    Lee: LOL! Thanks for always keepin an eye out here. Yeah..like i said above...will definitely be taking maybe two of them and flesh and develop them. If you haven't already checked it out...go and grab yourself a copy of "The Skillful Huntsman" It's just one mind ripping rollercoaster ride of goodness. Im sponging off of Brendan at the moment and just trying to squeeze every last bit of beautiful essence out of that book.

    My very best to you all!

    Yeah, huntsman did you good.

    Line 1: #1, #3, #7
    Line 2: (tough decisions!!) #1, #2, #4.. (gah! I love 5 too!)

    My opinions, at least...
