I've been doing a lot of stuff lately, Ihaven't posted here for ages so I thought it would be nice to share it with you CA people !
first is a cover for the incoming bordgame cover of Legend of the 5 rings
some roman stuff !
first a gaius julius caesar; I wish I had seen that rome tv series before painting him, he would have been totally different I guess
some gladiators :
vs carthage battle
Rome (I used some 3d yep)
enough of Romans
now vikings !
again on a boat (inspired by a rembrandt painting)
a small part of the great ragnarok battle , some people told me Odin was suppose to be one-eyed ; sorry for that mistake
I'll come back later with more stuff; hope you'll those

Whoa, really good craftsmanship and painting style. I like it's soft feel to it, and the one of the elephants is particularly outstanding.
Love it all. Especially the lion and Constantinople.
Can I ask if these are for specific projects?
Please post more.
Coleb“s Sketchbook now available at
Holy cow, all your pictures are amazing. I especially love the colliseum one with the lion. Phenomenal.
great work! 5 stars from me.
amazing. This will definitely inspire me to do more work
Very nice work. Don't take so long to post again.
my sketches here... http://conceptart.org/forums/showthread.php?t=92997
www.sevans.co.nz , visit them or a puppy dies!
Very nice action and movement. Very bold piece with the elephants - very nice result! The lion-piece looks great, but the hind legs of the cat looks too human, I think. There are som minor anatomical and perspective flaws here, but you do not fear the tough postures, and overall these looks great! The wolf-attack and the elephant-piece are my favorites. Constantinople doesn't messure up with the rest. Good work!
Impressive work man, especcially the rendering and composition and color. Chosen very clearly and they tell a story. Chapeau
I agree with Rhineville and Cloister to say that the anatomy is a bit off here and there. My eye fell also on open mouths, they look strange and crooked. With the scream avec lighting in the background as an exeption. In my fav, the one with the horse and the wolf, the mouth of the wolf, one of the focuspoints of the piece, could use extra attention. It doesn't seem to have a throat.
Overall good pieces. Me likes
In fact, berserks attacked NAKED. I'm not joking - no protection at all, even from mosquitos
naked and on magic mushrooms - (note to self: run in opposite direction as fast as possible)
There are so much good stuff, lion - sea battle - elephants. Some nice energy in some of these.
The fact that this stuff actually happened is amazing.
I would like to see more grit and blood - but wonder if the specs for the job impacted on this. I always want to see more grit and blood though...
Actually they did wear armour. It was just light armour. Attacking naked would be senseless. They were berserkers, not stupid.Originally Posted by TheNightPainter
Negative. No mushroom (that they had access to anyway) can cause the reported "berserker-rage". If anything, eating the mushrooms would dull them down, and make them sleepy.Originally Posted by deviousg
But hey, this is about the art! Which I love. Love the movement, love the composition. Aside from the anatomical weirdness in some of these, great work!
toasty whats your website!
man great great great work!
thanks to share!
Beautiful stuff. Odin is supposed to have one eye, be heavier built, and have a shield. I love the Fenris wolf, and Sleipnir (his horse, I don't think I spelled it correctly at all, lol).
Honest, I don't try to be an asshole, it just happens!
wow. awesome work! amazing stuff, I like the 2nd picture and Rome image the most
"Imagination is more important than knowledge..."
Great stuuf and painting style .lighting..shading ..

talking about romans stuff here is some more
I haven't posted them because I thought they weren't as good as the others and could use some more work
anyway here they are :
Mars god of war
Diana goddess of hunt/moon
Neptune, god of the seas
now here is something totally differerent , I was asked to imitate that old japanese print look for a book about ninjas. tons of fun to illustrate
(it's a he ,not a she, actually he was the first real ninja since he disguised as a woman to betray his ennemy )

superb! love that asian print style work. excellent.. keep it up - JAG
it's only after you've lost everything, that you're free to do anything..
They are great! I'm glad that you started to show them!Originally Posted by toasty
Thanks for sharing!
Incredible work. I love how you show the movement and expressions so full of life.
I think are really good compositions, But I don't really know much about compositions, i still think they are laid out well, did you plan out the composition first or just have and idea and start painting it?
