You have an awesome collection of work in your gallery.AWESOME!! I really like the color and action in this one. Very dynamic.

Thanks, Bill. I agree with an earlier comment that the little dude has more energy. I'll probably go back and add a little more force to the giant's swing when I get the chance.

I must have missed this one the first time around Leo, great action scene! I can almost feel that axe comming down.

Yep. He's about to get his (insert body part here) kicked!

Hahaha! Look at him run! Great dynamic piece.

Somehow I don't sense much motion from the giant, but the action in the archer and the tree is definitely evident. Great texture and I like the palette.

aw yeah man! this is so cool. I love it when you set your settings in forests. This one is really cool!

Thanks, Stan. I didn't have much in the way of reference on this one, but I think it's convincing enough.

Leo, very nice! Great job on the giants's torso and atmosphere in the distant trees.

Thanks, Patrick. I meant to keep the action broken up on three levels, with the background, middleground, and foreground distinct enough to keep all the various elements separate. Holding off with tiny details until the end helped a great deal.

Thanks, Chris. I tried something different with this image. Instead of doing a separate drawing on paper, I just blew up the sketch and kept adding more detail and refinement as it got bigger. I'm a little uncomfortable drawing with the wacom, but I think it worked out ok.

Wow! Great atmosphere, action and composition. The feeling of distance is very nicely done indeed.

Exciting scene, lots of energy and dynamic composition. Love it!

Art at its best.
