I've begun developing a personal project of mine, just for fun. I'm still looking for a company that would like to develop this into something further, so if there's anyone interested just let me know :D

Forest village:

Intresting, I like the first -and last one best. The painting is pretty good, but you should add some shadows, it'll look a little more atmospheric and less flat. Some nice big and dark shapes in the front will do good though. I like the forth one, with the entrence in the tree, could look really cool when coloured. you might add some more composition lines toward the entrence so the focus is on that, or at least it should be IMO. The characters look cool, I really like the big guy in the last drawing, but what is the relation of the characters in the 5th and 6th drawing with the village? The first 3 drawings look quite peacefull, warm(coloured) and with a lot of nature. The characters on the other hand look warrior like and a tad aggresive, I don't expect them to live in the village, they look more like city people traveling who'd pass by the village.

I like the art, specially the coloured one :)
Looking forward to see some progress ;)

the village and the next 2 following drawings are just awesome. :eek: they have a very unique style! for the coloured version, if it's meant to be just a concept sketch it's great otherwise i think you could improve on it by adding more detail.

Oshi: I origianlly started to work on these drawings as conceptual designs for a fictive computergame, just to keep myself busy, but with the respons I"ve gotten on the various boards, I'll probably be doing a short comic story in this style....:) THnx for the useful comments on shading and stuff, much appreciated.

Derwol: it was indeed just a conceptual design, if this were to have been a finished illustration I would have inked it and colored it more tightly. I will be doing this with my next illustrations, so stay tuned...:)

Your character sketches are good but your landscape drawings are what really catches my eye! The first two images are very good and your coloring seems to fit the image very well. Where you going from there with these?

El Rodente: what's that? A computergame? Or a comic? NOt familiar with it...

Supremo: yeah, I hear that alot, about my envionments being the real kicker....I'm trying to get my characters just as good, still alot of work to be done th ere...:) And about where I'm going with these: I've been approached by a rather good smallpress company to further develop this project into a comic, so I'm gonna see what happens....:)

Thnx for the support guyz!
