Beautiful work! The lion's expression is just plain awesome!
I loved the book's artwork, you really outdid yourself. What a piece of work. I wished the story (and the printed pages) would have done the art justice though...

I had to really look closely to make sure that lion wasn't a photo. So much detail, and all the highlights really make this come alive!

I've got to find my copy of this. I know I've got it somewhere... if I remember correctly, I wasn't a massive fan of the story (or the dialog, can't remember which I didn't like), but I bought it for the art, and it didn't disappoint in the slightest. A spectacular piece.

I wish I could rewrite the dialog. It was terrible.

Don't sweat it... your art was spectacular, I was not disappointed. Did you ever do any other full comics like that? It's wonderful to get a whole narrative where your quality of art isn't just relegated to the cover. I wish Frazetta had done some things like that.

Thought I knew your style from somewhere then I remembered seeing this piece in Sprctrum 12 ^_^ Im trying to get into acrylic but my sense of colour sucks big time :p but I'll get it :P this is a ver inspiring painting though ^_^

Stick with it. It'll come. Color sense has nothing to do with media, though. Pick up a couple of books on color theory if you thinks it's a weak link for you. The knowledge will translate to any media.

Hi ^_^ Sorry, I haven't been on DA for a while but I've taken your advice and grabbed a few books from the library ^_^ I figured I'd get one on watercolour too seeing as Acrylic can be used that way ^_^ BUt, bottom line, thanks for the advice, really appreciate it ^_^
