nice stuff, very good mood
Man, I really like your painterly stuff.
Do you use Painter or Photoshop? Why?
im liking the new chow but i just think the guy holding the flag, the flag is breaking up the composition because of the vertical line
Awesome works Gadbury!
The IOW looks insane man, the palette is great.
The chow looks good too but i agree with CarlSpringer regarding the composition. Also I think the knight is competing in size and space with the female character, maybe she should be in a more advanced position, more towards the foreground.
keep up the great work!
oh boy that chow isdeveloping into something really special. epic colours!

Shadow Stalker - Thanks man
tampirespp - Thanks, I use Photoshop - Painter is cool but I prefer Photoshop because it seems easier to use, plus you can get a sort of painterly look in Photoshop if you want
CarlSpringer - Thanks for the crit - I do like the flag but I can see what you mean - I'll experiment without it. Or do you mean the actual flag pole he's holding? I'm not really any good with composition
Ricardo Robles - Thanks, I have made some slight changes to the composition in this update, which I think might help (I hope). I'll have a play with the flag issue though
Velocity Kendall - Thanks!
Update on the Chow - I've extended the canvas at the bottom which I think helps somehow, and I'm trying to add a sort of spotlight on the figures - I like where its going but the shadows are giving me a lot of trouble. The crits are really helpful so please keep em coming
Love the feeling you got in your paints! The lighting is awesome. Keep it up!
xbert, Zikes, and Ludic - Thanks, I'm trying to learn to get a more dramatic and realistic lighting going in my work...
Which leads me to this study I did tonight from this photo (which took me longer than it looks) after seeing some work by Steve Huston - just trying to get a cool chiaroscuro style lighting going on. Its really difficult without looking up Frazetta constantly or something (I looked his work up a couple of times)! Maybe some still life work with hard lighting would be a good idea
I love that chiaroscuro study you've done there, and I hear what you mean about studying Frank Frazzetta - he really knew his stuff there. No crits from me, just keep on doing what you're doing!
love the last chow concept as well as the final piece, and great studies! Steve huston is great, really dynamic, I suggest you look at Caravaggio for the lighting, it might help you ^^

indeed that last chow is very nice, I think it could benefit a lot from some more risky color tones (more scarlet red on the cape, some cyans on the landscape, maybe some discrete khakis,forest greens around) because the lighting and all is already amazing
but thats just my opinion, I love the piece!!!
I really like the environment wip, love to see the finished product
-D_art- Thanks, I've been looking at a bit of Caravaggio, might try some studies from it
f1x - Yeah I agree, I was going for a desaturated kind of look but it does look as though it might be too desaturated looking at it now. A bright red on the cape sounds good. Thanks!
jbrown67 - Thanks man
Jae1234 - Thanks!
A photo study of Willem Dafoe, and a final update I guess on this one, which got corrupted and turned into this yellowy mess.. Oh well
Looking awesome mate! I Love that mech pilot!
Man you got some epic epicness in this sketchbook, I'd like to see how the knights turn up looking awesome.
Check out my sketchbook
That's a great Mr Franzetta study, oddly enough i started doing one last night to, I would say that the guy swinging the chain should be pushed back just a little further in the distance besides that I think its great!
