GEB - Thank you man love your stuff! See you over at Cow :>
Cassandra Palentine - Thank you!
Jai Kamat - Wow Thank you man, I'm a big fan. I'll try not to dissapoint!
Kimozabbi - Thank youu
JesseM - Thanks man, I'm really glad you like that one, such fun to do, a mish mash of brushes and then wild flailing with the smudgetool, feels very fluid to work like that.
Knut - Yeah I hear ya, Need more studies!
ChromaticCodex - Hey man! Glad you like the stuff, I always enjoy your beasties in the Cow sections, see you there :>
APW - Thanks alot APW Yes I do have a devart, only recently (ha) started posting there, but I do try to flick all the stuff in that direction too. Here it is : http://cebob.deviantart.com/
Velocity Kendall - wow Thanks man! Huge fan of your stuff, always a trip to visit your sketchbook mate.
Aresa - Hello! and thank you glad you like em:> Will do more!
Vertiacal - Thank man, yeah the faberge dragon was fun to do, do check out the guys in the C.o.w corner of the forum, always neat topics and glorious entries from our fellow peers :>
Fernteixeira - Thank youu
bbwolf - Hey thanks man, and sorry for posting this reply sooo late, you've probably moved on and found a million ways do do stuff better than this but I'll try to explain some of my process. I've included 3 b-w steps of a killer bunny here, maybee not much in terms of explaining what I do but after this BW stage, I always work on one to two layers since that is what my computer can handle, and then I colorize the image using Ctrl+U in photoshop, (check the little thingy in the box there) and pull on the sliders to find you overall Theme colour. What I do after that is usually pick colours to go warmer or colder aganst that one "theme colour" and paint out details and pools of light with those. most of the work is already done in black and white. This explanation is now a mess, but I'll try to make something for this weeks cow: Fungal Beast. and save the process more clearly.
Again thanks for the kinds words man, always a great pick-me-up :>
Licencetoconfuse - Thanks man, yeah I do love leyendecker!
Ashess - Thank you and haha Its the truth man! I'll try to remedy the situation with some artsys:
page 3 woooo!

ohh god i get unbelieveable bored after 3 or 4 hand studys ...
where you guys get all this motivation? are you drinking nonstop coffee?
btw nice creatures, but why is no-one drawing turtles? turtles are the coolest animals, they got a shield and can bite you Ô.o

The glistening, vibrant light in your art is gorgeous.
I've just come across from your bioluminescent COW fungal beast entry which REALLY caught my eye. Talent.
Loving your work! seriously your studies are awesome!! Voted for you this week, i thought your creature was not only well thought out but brilliantly rendered, you sort of hid its lower body so you wouldn't have to render it to much.
Hi Vulgaaar thanks for stopping by ;>
Hey Neyut! You're right on the money, excessive amounts of coffee. It keeps getting cold so I microwave the same cup 4-5 times. (makes for good short breaks for the hands)
About lines, Thanks alot for the compliment. I just started very slow and carefully looked over the whole diagram before starting. then started to go faster and faster. I'll look into the whole turtle affair.
Gebbedy Geb Thanks mate
Jansi Daaw thanks alot! I had alot of fun with the gatekeeper glad you like it
Darius sama - Thanks!
Spyhopping Thanks alot!
AdrianNagorski - Hey thanks alot Adrian! yeah I try to get away with that everytime :>

Hi! Just had to drop by and say that your entry for this weeks COW was amazing. And of course I can't help but notice that the rest of the stuff here is equally superb.
I'll be subscribing
super niceeeeee moreee!!
Dude...Dude, DUDE! Wow. I adore your creatures. Every single one of them. And the color! My lord, the color!!
That cover attempt is very very cool. I love everything about creature's pose, expression and color. Very intimidating and sinister.
Subscribed and 5 stars.

Sjuuukt fina färger. I just saw your final on the Pale Greeter challenge and I'm very impressed with the result. It's so smooth and yet so crisp for some reason. Infact most of your stuff is like that. I dig last weeks assault beast you came up with too. Don't know how you pull it off. <-- Jealous.
