Artwork Description

I did this piece after a few months hiatus. Trying to push more emotion in my faces. I'm still trying to get use to all the cool brushes in photoshop to get the desired effect. Miss the oils alot. Smile

Your art never stops to amaze me with your wonderful characters and colouring! Wish I had time to paint (miss holding a pen and brush in my hand), exams are closing though "sigh". I think I´ll just admire your art and wish christmas holidays will come fast. Great effect with the green glow and the fire!

Amazing fire effects - can practically feel the heat! Terrific job.

Your wispy strokes have always been one of my favorite effects that you create and your smoke creature here is like a culmination of this technique, wonderful job, fascinating and intricate! What's more, your knowledge of color theory, textures, and lighting are some of the greatest displayed by any living artist in the fantasy genre in my opinion. This painting looks delicious, pure eye candy, with that trademark power and drama that you supercharge your creations with. Fantastic!!

JUST THE RIGHT AMOUNT OF LIGHTING IN THE FOREGROUND TO ALLOW FOR A BUSY BACKGROUND WITHOUT IT BEING OVERPOWERING. I MUST SAY ONCE AGAIN THE COMPOSITION OF YOUR WORK IS BEYOND REPROACH CANNOT WAIT FOR THE NEXT ONE!!

Awesome ! I completely second Simon's opinion: I hope the Editor's Pick button was truly off this week, otherwise not picking this one is an obvious mistake. I knew your previous work already, but it is great to see new pieces being posted here.

Enjoyed viewing your latest additions, very impressive. This one is my favourite. I'm trying to understand how you crammed so much detail in without it becoming too fussy. Great job. I can only presume the Editor's Pick button isn't working this week.

Great work - love the face in the "background" and yes, that green light is awesome!

WOW!!! And your try to put more emotion in the faces worked pretty well, damn, you are soo good! The green light at the bottom adds such an awesome effect; you really know what you are doing.

Art at its best.
