    I'm always excited to see the last reply stated as Yilx in your thread, new art! Not really feelin' the last one though, I think it's the vast black space that's doing it.

    Wasn't quite sure what to fill it up with but I'll look into that... probably won't touch this piece again though

    I think it's overdone and ugly :/

    Aww... I liked it.

    The vast emptiness does need to be sorted out though.

    meh, I'd just leave it and move on to something else. It's not like there's much to put there without completely shifting the focus from the creatures at the bottom (except maybe more of that red wall stuff, so it's not really worth it.

    Hmm. These are better than anything I could do ever. Have you ever tried speedpainting before? Also, what brush hardness setting do you use?

    Your work is incredible.
    One question, what size canvas do you usually begin with when you draw?

    Start from 2000x2000. Increase from there depending on what kind of composition and subject I'm aiming for...

    Yeah, the way the image's focus is naturally drawn to its head through lighting and sharper details is really well done. Good to see yourself pushing your limits!

    Your coloring is so awesome. I'd like to see you draw Thundurus-T, as I think it's the goofiest looking therian and strange to draw. You're like a fine wine, you make me feel warm 'n stuff.

    That is so sweet! The lighting and color and everything is spectacular! You should draw a colored animation mini movie. (like the user: Cartoons! )

    So I started working and I don't have time to draw anything at home anymore because of how demanding my job is

    But here's a WIP I managed to do over a weekend

    The background is what sells this piece. Stunning lighting too, great stuff.

    How the fuck do you manage to do this in one weekend?! Your art is amazing man. The lighting, the colors, the details in the background, everything comes together nicely. Luvdisc'd!
