Apprehensive Knight

I've been running my system on half memory, after one of my mem ram "thingies" bought the dust. it is almost impossible for me to paint using Corel Painter (my personal fav') so this was done in PS... including a little lag towards the end. It's a fairly quick (under 2 hours) experiment in trying to render steel armour in a dirty-scribble way. I also experimented (failed?) with an odd balance within the frame: All that light crammend into the left side together with the unconventional figure direction. It soooo leans towards the left when the right side offers much more room. Haha... it's fun to try things out, though.

Pike Watch

Can't keep my dirty hands of my DS... even though I promised. :(
However, this one is the second speedpaint I've done using the theme of a wandering figure in the foreground looking out over a (hopefully) pleasing vista. I like the setup - even though it might be rather overused - and will probably explore it further.

Warrior Pilgrim

I never seem to tire of sketching and painting rock formations. I'm sure it has something to do with fond childhood memories of clambering up any available surface. They also seem to suit my terrible scribbling tendency.


Conwy Scribbles

Finally got around to scanning a few dodgy sketches done in Conwy, Wales.
