Wow... all the DETAILS!! Amazing! Don't know if I agree with the way you did the folds on the pants though... Still... cool pose and such welldone details... much, yet not TOO much. Darrell Volfeng Pestana
replies: "Thank you Renate! and welcome to my gallery. The folds didn't quite get the effect I wanted, best I could do at the time. "

Fabulous! The pose is dynamic and full of energy. The details throught the entire picture are awe-inspiring. That expression absolutely rocks...one can see the rage and fury. Wonderful work. Darrell Volfeng Pestana

The detail is facsinating!!! And the pose is really shaky and unsure, as if he is about to fall.
Somehow this picture brings a legend to my mind. (I'm a wellspring of such stuff
))))))) This one is about grandson of Timur Tamerlan. He was a weak emperor and let the Timur's empire fall apart. In the last hours of his life he was visited by ghost of Tamerlan himself. It's told that sick emperior suddenly jumped in his bed with the scream: "He is looking at me! The Great Timur is looking at me!" (or something like that) And everybody in the bedroom heard the old man's voice, coming from an empty corner: "Woe to the house of Timur! It's strengh is gone!" )Btw "Tamerlan" means really "Timur-lame"

Oh this is fantastic, you really have an eye for detail. You obviously put a lot into your drawings. At first from the thumbnail, I thought he was doing a dance Darrell Volfeng Pestana
replies: "Thanks Aleija, glad you liked it. I am addicted to detail, actually it is a great way to exercize your patience, so you don't rush through a piece too fast. If there is a lot of intricate detail. you simply can't rush, even if you want to!!!"

Madness is overtaking this dude. The throne is beyond adjectives. the little pictures make it look so ...real and nifty!!! Darrell Volfeng Pestana
replies: "Thanks Trinin, the throne was difficult because there is a lot of carving on it, it is based on the actual Ivory throne on which Ivan the terrible sat. To get the look of carving I darkened each panel in, and then 'drew' with a sharpened eraser."
