Well, here´s one of my very few oilpaintings, done in school. I used same sketch for this as for similar chalk-drawing here somewhere. Oilpaints just aren´t my thing, but maybe I will learn. Sold the original for a friend, happy that he liked it. ^^

Done with oilpaints and oil pastels.

This is a good one! Could appear as illustration for some fantasy story book. There's nice dynamics in the picture thanks to sloping perspective and character position. Lighting works well too.

I like this dragon, it has a lot of personality, far more than most dragon pictures. I like its crocodile like grin and its slender face, looks almost mischevious. i like the fact that its oriental too.

WOOO! have u seen D-War? It reminds me of a scene in it! If you haven’t seen it, you should cause it’s pretty close to having this turned into a really good bit of special effects! Awesome pic! 1
