Thank you, kind Guest!

great detail

megaflow's picture

Thanks, Vivek! This is about all the detail it's ever going to have -- I sold it a couple of years ago. Smile But I was very happy with it at the time, and I'm glad you like the storytelling, my favorite part of any picture.

Awesome painting. Eerie sky, nice depth to the background detail, and good drama on the foreground. The Hunter becomes the Hunted - cool story. But the shadows could a bit of rework, and more detail for the wolves would have been good. Great job - all the best!

Thanks, and yes I _can_ read it. Hahaha! (Actually a friend read it for me... I have a hard enough time reading English!)

Very moody indeed! I like such inviting landscapes.

Thanks a lot, Dan! I really enjoyed painting this one, and I learned a lot at the time about using colors to heighten the mood.

Hi Patrick, I've used your 'Turfwar' to make a Walk for the Garden. Is that alright with you?

N. Credible pic! Love the colorz the action--just amazing!

megaflow's picture

Much appreciated, Kort. Can't go wrong with that blue and gold color scheme! Thanks for the props.

Oh yeah, this one is sweet. The backgroung/forground coloration is truly well done. I love it.

megaflow's picture

You are too cool, Marilyn - thanks! And this one got knocked out of the duel recently itself, so the circle goes 'round...!

blueunicorn's picture

Ah yes! This is the one the "turfed" me out of my "Battle of the Unicorns" in the Duels at the beginning. I salute the better artist! Truthfully, this is a real winner. Glad to see you are holding your own there.

megaflow's picture

Thanks again, Denny. Smile The castle is interesting -- I wanted a very impressionistic castle, with little detail, but I drew it in more detail first so the perspective and everything would be right. Then I took OUT as many details as I could. I think this helps give it the impression of having more than it does... (hope so, anyway).

isenho's picture

yeah this is my favorite piece out of your gallery. i love how you made the castle, it dosnt have that much detail and yet it looks awsome and brooding. wicked wolves and the sky with the moon looks like a perfect setting to create that night-time-scary atmosphere. i bow to you!

megaflow's picture

Well, I'm sure yours will come out great, Terry, but thanks!

This is a great picture Patrick, I wish I`d come here earlier, because I`m tackling a picture with a simular lighting...the only difference is that I`m making a total balls up of my picture...it`s nice to see how it should be done...superb work!

Art at its best.
