There he is, welcome back, buddy, good luck dude! 2 and 3 seems to have more of an interesting composition. 3 seems the most attractive to me, good luck Simon!

Wow these are really good sketches. I'm curious as to what program if any you use, and anything else you could say about how you approach your sketches.

Good to see you back again, Baron. These have all got some amazing energy to them... wow! 3 & 5 are my favorites - especially 3 - but we'll all be anxious to see whatever you develop more and how it works into the theme... Good luck and have fun (looks like you already are.)

I don't want to repeat myself praising your qualities as I did in the last challenge so, I'll just keep an eye on your fantastic work and try to learn as much as I can. Good luck!

marcoracer - Thanks, hope to post some more soon

bandro - Thanks for commenting. These are just environment ideas, I haven't thought about the characters yet.

enialadam - Hey there, good luck to you too

paperclip - Thanks for your opinion, nice one

dunkelgold - Thanks for reminding me too

maranello55 - Yeah, the volcano one would actually be a portal to another world within the swirling smoke - can't really see it in the sketch though

Mythmaker - You know how it is, I'm very lazy Good luck to you

MichaelMotion - Thanks for the vote of confidence, and please, follow away!

Ranath - Cheers, looking forwards to seeing your pics too

Nomad - Cheers! Good luck

nebezial - It might be impossibly bad, depending on how much time I can spare, but I'll do my best

beelow - Thanks for the welcome. I'll be noting down everyone's thumb preferences and then seeing which is most popular

tAsty BITs - Cheers for the comment. I use Painter8.1 for all my painting, with custom brushes. For these sketches I work small (around 1000px) and as fast as possible - the quickest was about 3 minutes. When I decide on one, I'll paint it out again at 5000px (or something) and just refine and refine with smaller and smaller brushes til it's done.

walrus - Great to see you here, thanks for dropping by. I'm looking forwards to seeing yours, and everyone else's here of course, when I get a moment.

Xillion - Hello there, your input is always appreciated. Good luck.

W!L - Oh, I just wish that were true Thanks and good luck

...and good luck to everyone, of course
