Man Jeff, I can't help but see some seriuos Frazetta influence here which is great. Beautiful work, solid composition, nice stuff.

why thanks markey! (er, marley). so nice to have the opportunity to read some of your commentary again mate!

as to brushes, i use digital airbrush set at 10% opacity, usually on semi-opaque layers (often gel and multiply for tinting), which adds up to kind of a glazing technique, like in oil painting. for some modeling and edges i use painter's variable round oil brush, which kind of drags the 'paint' around in fun ways.

i love your new painting by the way!

thats a finely painted piece of art jess. A simple but very effective composition, and great colours to bring it all home too!. Awesome character design!.

Art at its best.
