(It should be a whole pile of bones but I got lazy on the detail.)

At the Dragon*con Art Show alongside many other fab artists, there happened to be a certain Mr Todd Lockwood (and if you're a dragon fan who says 'who'. shame on you :P). And thanks to some prodding from Geistdrache  I managed to not miss the opportunity to show him my portfolio for a little C&C. He was super nice and gave me some really good crits and suggestions for areas for improvement. One of them was lighting which I totally failed at here.  And another rather important one was to work on my figures which is fair play since I draw outta my head and it does rather show. So as of now I plan to start using stock photos/references more and see where that takes me. And since Blackjack's just so much damn fun to draw I picked him for my first effort, using a luvly photo by http://linzstock.deviantart.com/ as reference.

The lighting's a bit rubbish, largely due to a mis-stroke with the black ink which I then had to hide, but had to blacken everything else to make it fit. Next time I should probably scan first, brush ink later but I suppose life's about taking risks XD

Indian ink, markers, pencil crayon and gel pen.

You get feedback from Lockwood! Oh my...I just turned green.

This picture is really nice (well...as "nice" as demonic creatures with big black wings and piles of bones can be). The pose is effective and background fabulous. Colours look also very good.
