OH Jeff, this is so great. I just read lately a book (Terry Pratchett) and he said, first they were 5 (!) and he described them so well - would be sure fun to paint them... but probably not as good Wink

Very cool. I adore the color scheme that sets the brooding mood of the image.

Like Karyn was saying, I really love the subtle tones of gold in the background! Looks great. Smile

hey marley, thanks fer stopping over fellah! glad you like the changes made, and thanks for your input in the wip forum(i want to push the light/dark scheme in some works but not to the point where viewers with other rigs start losing the picture)i did indeed trim it down for compositional purposes. good eye mate;)

thanks karyn! i think you are about right on concerning my palette on this one-i had just gotten back from a whistler exhibit when i sketched out the project:)

Jeff: I really love the way you painted the big skeleton, and the subtle splashes of color you added--especially the way the gold and black meet on the horizon--reminds me of the palettes Whistler or Sargent used. And the lighting is well done too!

Yea i guess it is fantasy afterall ^^.Its certainly come a long way since it was in W.I.P, seems compositionally more balanced now aswell was a bit skinnier wasn't it?.Love the way the lighting is cast on the horses and the horses themselves look stunning!.a very nice piece of art jeff.~Marley

Very powerful. Marvelous sense of urgency and motion.

Art at its best.
