Love the warm colors and the composition of this. Adding it's master gives it a great sense of scale too. :)

Oh thank you so much :D glad that you like shadee! I honestly got burnt out working on it. Almost too much Orange and fellows. Glad you like regardless. Thanks so much again for your kind words :)

Thanks buddy! This one was quite frustrating at times and i was very indecisive. But in the end I finished it and ready to move on. Alot of things could be fixed...maybe one day :D

the detail in this is amazing- but i can imagine that it was nail-biting to get it to this level.i also tend to "over detail" my paintings, getting tired of painting details that the viewer probably only looks at for an millisecond-if they look at it at all.the trick would be to use detailed textures mostly on the focus area- and let the rest "fade out"- if you know what i mean. scott purdy is really good in this for example.using light and shadow to "fade" stuff and let it merge with the shadow/light..."shape-wielding" and all that blues... :D

Yeah exactly. I am gonna try to give myself deadlines. That way I dont spend way too long on something that I am not fully happy with in the end. I get to anxious to start detailing I forget about the good initial sketch. I just have to have patience :D

I love the warm colours! It reminds me of The Lord of the Ring when Gandalf confronts the devil in the cave in the first episode. The beast looks rather impressing. Wonder what sombre plan his Master is plotting ;) .

Good luck for the contest! Crossing fingers for you...

(Unsure I foung the hog, this time...)

Aww thanks man. Theres so many entries and great artists....my odds aren't that good. But doesn't hurt to try and I loved the topic of course. If you think you found the hog I am sure you did. You can see his nose and eyes faintly, and a few quills lol. Very tough to hide him in this one. Poor guy is probably roasting :( But he had to make an appearance. Glad you like man :D

You're most welcome :) . Indeed the entries I saw are all fantastic. I was almost tempted to enter but I can hardly create anything so far and I'm utterly slow in drawing :D ! So I barely have no chance thus far. I need a lot of practice and I'm sure I'll enter such a contest sooner or later. Maybe later than sooner actually :rofl: ... I'm crossing fingers for you anyway.
