Wow, spectacular. Are you accepting commissions at present? I am looking for somebody of your great talent to draw / paint me the ancient Aztec city of Tenochtitlan. I have some perfect reference pieces to work from. Please PM me if you are interested. Thanks so much! :)

So gorgeous! I love the intricate details and the atmosphere you have created. Looks like a magical world to live in, and the mushrooms in the foreground are a nice touch and provide a pleasant pop of color. And of course, the cheetuh is just as intense and beautiful as everything else I see in this drawing! :heart: :love:

If there was a cat that could fly like that it would be AWESOME but I'd want wings to so I could get away <.>; hehehe, I'm lookin at your whole gallery, its all great. You're making me want to draw on colored paper with colored pencils now haha but i have neither =(

Beautiful. I bet it takes a lot of patience to render it all with coloured pencils in such a way. Or whatever did you use? Wish I could handle colour like that, working on it but still miles awaaaay.

i never thought i would get into color ever! i started with the pencil of coarse. the only way to get better is to practice practice practice.
always go the extra mile on an art piece and see what unfolds.

I've never found a decent name for winged cats (one of the first ones I ever saw was a winged lion on a lunch box my gram gave me) What do you call them?
I;ve been using Griffon (since Gryphon is a bird/cat mix)

originaly i was going to give up on this piece, but like so many others that i was ready to give up on, i kept going and because of it i never would have the collection of pieces of artwork that i have now. sometimes you gotta kick some ass. and more then half the time its your own.

thank you, thats quit a compliment. i checked out your page. nice job on the eyes for the * london model* thats awesome that your picky about the detail in eyes. im the same way. if you dont have the eyes, then you dont have it at all.
keep at your artwork. your kicking ass so far. =)
