Oh Yeah! 2 fingers eh! How dare you criticize the fact that my Tyranosaur has 5 fingers! why I oughta! ...... Heh heh, just kidding. Ok, this is actually Godzilla, and he has 5 fingers because he's mutated. I love the concept of mutation, it justifies any anomaly. lol. Anyway, thank you very much for the kind words. P.S. I'm glad you like my drawing! Smile

Hey that’s a nice draw, but I have to say that Tyrannosaurus Rex didn’t had 5 fingers in his hand, he only had 2 and his hands were tinny but really powerful; no body really knows what those strong little arms were for.
But still I can’t draw that good…^_^

Thanks. I think it's probably the best thing I've ever done in terms of technical execution.

Christopher:
I really like this piece! It's so full of action and drama, and I like the way the windows of the buidlings mirror the scales of the T-Rex. And it feels fun, with the old school taxi, and extreme angles. Very cool.

Woah, things are getting hot and steamy with the editors and the artists Laughing out loud Anyways, my gods this is extremely brilliant - the technical control here is everything -I- want!!! I especially love the way you've maintained focus despite the scene being packed full of moving elements. Super duper work ;]

I have always enjoyed this piece Christopher, you're a very talented person. I was recently wondering what had become of ya. Anyway, glad to see that you're still walking among us epilogians...or whatever we are...

Thank you Tom.
I apologize to the Epilogue community for being a dork.
It's really flattering to me that you like this image too.
If you say it's good work, then I know it must be true.
Thanks.
...
And thanks again to the kind and merciful editor who approved this. I love you.

Marley, thanks bro. I admit that when you first posted here at Epilogue, I didn't realize just how talented and driven an artist you were. You really surprised me with how far you've evolved technically. Your works are so spiritually deep, & they have such awe inspiring magnitude. You are a "True" artist Marley. Thanks for your kind words. As Bartles & James would say; "Thank you for support" [that's from a popular old U.S. T.V. commercial]
Smile

Abigail, I don't know how many other artists self destruct like I do, but I guess it's comforting to know that I am not the only one it's happened to. It's no fun, let me tell you. Anyway, I do want to be in this "together" with all of you fantastic artists here on Epilogue, so hopefully this time I will stay for good Wink It took me about 2-3 months of on-and-off work to complete this charcoal drawing, so future updates might be a little slow, at least until I can find, and hone a process that works for me. Thanks for your comment. Smile

Judy, coming from someone who is so fiercely dedicated to their craft, I take that as a stunning compliment.
Your "Repute of The Dragon" pic is one of my favorite images here on Epilogue.
The dynamic pose of the dragon, the atmospherics and lighting, they're so crisp and tactile, it's like you could reach through the monitor screen and touch what you've created.
My sincere grattitude for your wonderful words. That made my day. Smile

Hey Chris , Im glad your getting over what ever was bothering you...This is great and entertaining work dude...

Yea i agree with judy, well above, i still remember it nicely, i certainly appreciate the effort moreso now becuase i have been doing a bit of pencil myself. (i know ur using charcoal). Still looks better than the fizzer of a movie from 98 Tongue. hehe, great job mate ^^.
