I know you've heard it, and heard it again, but I just thought I'd let you know once more; the most outstanding portait of a drow I have ever seen. Great Work!

I've begun a policy of not allowing any use of my artwork. However--if you're running your own game at home, I'm not going to get all upset if you happen to download a picture to use as reference. However--I'm totally against any use ON-LINE. As I said, it's too easy for people who haven't asked permission to just steal the images if they are on all kinds of interenet sites.

Marisa, acrylics are not the easiest medium to use. Because it dries so quickly, it's difficult to get it to blend smoothly, particularly for smooth things like skintones. The things acrylics are good for, is that you can easily correct things by painting over it. And if you want things to dry quickly and not lift up with subsequent paintinging, it's great! One cheaty way to make acrylics look smoother is to paint a very large painting. When it's reduced down in print (or on a website) it will look a lot smoother! Also--don't use big, fat, bristle brushes--use small flats and rounds, so you can get the details. Use painting techniques like scumbling and glazing. Know how to mix paint and make gradual gradations. Also, wet palettes and spray-bottles of water also help!

Awesome. Love the wide range of blue tones employed in this. The style here is reminiscent of Elmore to me, one of my favorite artists.
