This would be one of my favorites. What i like most is the fauvist influence on your colour and brush-strokes. It's great to see a fantasy artist quoting from more than just neo-romatic and prerafaelite movements. Your art 's got balls baby!

Beautiful feeling of movement here Billy and the 'waves' underfoot add to that. I love the figure very expressive.

I preetty much just buy bags of them and a good pencil eraser and go mad - I can't claim much in the way of technique...

Interesting work and great use of colored pencils. I would very much like to learn how to use them myself - got any pointers? Anyway, welcome to the "club".

There is a beautiful light on the figure. You use wonderful colours, I like your style very much. I would love to see more.

Nice colouring. Lovely foot wings!

My general approach to colour is to use every colour I currently have in the pencil case (which is a semi random set of coloured pencils left over from different sets). Occassionally it works out for me -- hopefully this is one of those occassions.

Very nice. Love how you did the colouring. I also like the background.

Well, my art teacher told me no outlines, no black -- but the spirit is no longer willing to follow those kind of rules... thanks for coming by!

Great body figure.. love how you colored his body. the stronger outlines work good.

Art at its best.
