Aha I see you, like me, are a fan of the flock of white birds technique! It's a good one! :P Great practice work...I'm really liking your speedpaints. I think I shall watch :) Oh just a small crit, from looking at your gallery your pieces almost border on too dark. Great atmosphere but sometimes it's a strain to see the fun....such as archer boy in this one. Barely saw him the first time round.

Hey BigBwana,
Thanks a lot! Yeah - those birds are always awesome:) And a pretty easy way to give a sense of scale.
You're welcome! Yeah - I realized it. The interesting thing that I work on a calibrated screens and they don't look to dark. Back at home (different screen) - too dark.
Well - but it isn't that bad. In this case you spend a bit more time watching my images or at least a second time :D

Cheers

Screen calibration is the bane of my existence....I have the same problem to of course :) It's a pleasure looking at your images so I don't mind looking a bit closer

Yeah - pretty painful. And the other downside - sRGB. If you work with AbobeRGB the values looks much brighter and better. The problem is that most of the browser are just able to display sRGB. Meh - and this really sucks. In such case you have to save everything out twice (which sucks again!!). But well -it is as it is :D
Thanks again, buddy! Really glad you like it!
Best

yep I thought I had it sussed (sorry, New Zealand for "figured out") when I recalibrated my lcd (I work on a laptop mostly) but had a couple of issues because of browsers etc...I'll look into AdobeRGB instead and see if that helps.

It really depends on what kind of screen you use…
I'm working on a 30“ screen at work and on a laptop at home. two worlds…
And I had the pleasure to work on a eizo high - WOW!
But at the point it up on the net - I could immediately start crying:)

AdobeRGB is way better to work - especially if you decide to print your work later on:)

Cheers

Actually I may start thinking about upgrading my display hardware soon. I used to mostly do my own amateur stuff so I didn't care, but I've been getting more freelance gigs lately, and I don't want any embarrassing issues! You reckon Eizo is the bomb eh? Will do some research.

Yeah - I could recommend that!
Especially if you starting with more and more gigs:)
there will be a lot of issues, if you don't work with a calibrated screen (trust me:) )
Yup - Its the bomb and a hell lot expensive.
Eizo's are available in two version - the normal one and the High grade version.
Both works fine - but the high grade is the best what you could get.
We are using that for every color work we do for print and the end result is pretty great!

Reading the comments, I really hope you get more recognition. :) The hue in this one is fantastic. I see another flock of white birds to the left -- is there a theme to that? The dashes of red are a great way to lead you to the figure on the bridge, then back in turn to the one observing them form below. The foliage is amazing o_o I'm a complete novice when it comes to most textures -- if you don't mind my asking how did you paint them?
