did a publishing company/author hire you to make them cover art, or is it your book? anyway, excellent picture. i cant even begin to imagine the skill/time it takes to create something like that

I'll admit I like your earlier work like this - a more realistic palette and contained subject - better than Warcraft-style art, which requires more garish colors and exaggeration of shapes and all - but I do know that takes skill too - and pays better, I'm sure.

Rogan! Does the word come from Age of Empires? : D
Ah, just curious. ^^ Your work is very nice, I like the heavy shines and shadows, with the added textures. They've all got a sort of hazy dreaminess to them. My favorite is shards for its color brilliance and sharpness with mean textures. Oh, but it seems that one got a daily deviation too ; )

Fantastic!


This is just semantics, but if he's right handed, why's the sword on the wrong side? ;)

Anywho, bloody brilliant. I wish I were half so talented.

Did you give these guys permission to use this pic for their book (in the following link), or is it being stolen?

I think it's so cool that they all carry different weapons.

Holy cow. I love this one alot more than the other one. But....maybe you could darken the flying arrows? And maybe add a weird-creepy dragon-thing in the top right? Just a suggestion. Feel free to whack me over the head for non-technical terms. :)

This is a wonderful colored picture. I like the poses, the clothes and the background. I know, airbrush cannot get so much detailed, but that's the only thing I miss about the picture. Everything else is just purrfect!
