What kind of Elfwood problems? I'm a member of elfwood, so I may be able to help. If it's something with the extranet, I'm sure I can help. And if I can't and you have visited FAQs and done everything you can possibly do, try e-mailing Thomas. I thinks the moderators have enough on their hands. (Do you have a gallery on Wyverns Library, or SF&F art?

yes the hand holding the staff is a bit bigger than the hand holding the sword...the way I see it, as long as you can see the Icon (hand in this cast)for what is, you can get away with it...the hand that is larger, helps draw the eye up to the diagonal which gives the artwork energy...thanks for your cocoment Kaiisa!...

Thankyou friend, we get stats on all our pictures here at Epilogue, and it`s very interesting which pictures are mostly look at...some like Gandalf which I drew quite quickly, does better than pictures that took months to complete...maybe it`s time to get the crayons out again...thanks for dropping in..

absolutely amazing job. i love your work with the color pencils and this particular picture is a fine example of the correct usage of the color pencil medium.

I agree with you, if you have the talent with the pencils, you've got it! Hey Terry, do you also have an Elfwood gallery?

Cheers Anneke! ...it`s a quick and easy way of working, and sometimes you can capture the energy better with this technique..

Terry, you are so good with coloured pencil! His clothes are wonderful, as well as his expression.

Art at its best.
