this was fun, not doing insects for once....picture revised and updated :)

Thanks heaps for the kind feedback, wow, being compared to JGurney? That's enormously flattering, - (note to everyone who's not seen the Dinotopia books, CHECK 'EM OUT!, and be sure to de-fluff your eyeballs after they've rolled around the floor)

Wow.Thank you for replying..yeah,guess I should check out his FB-as well as GurneyJourney, now that I finally have a www connection.

Hey,by the way,I loved Salsa. I'm not entirely sure if I got the story, so that's just another reason for me to read it from time to time-apart from the incredible paintings. Actually you're somewhere in the same 'realm' as JG for me with that piece.
Reminds me of showing it to a friend of mine,n8schattengewaechs, he and his brother are old friends of mine and just recently, they started to breed mantids again.
n8schattengewaechs was also the one who borrowed me his Intuos Pro just to tell me a few weeks later that if he'd ever need it, he'd buy a new one and this one (in front of me as writing this) was now mine.
Check his page if you're curious, I think there should be some interesting/useful photos of the animals for ya.

Thanks again for the reply!

You're very welcome, the story was meant to be an enigma, I guess it worked :)

So there is a certain plot, a certain meaning we can't see at first glimpse?
Cause I love such things like crazy. Would be even cooler if helped understanding to know this or that about insects. Not that I was very educated in that, but as mentioned I got my experts.. :)

Btw., dunno if I mentioned it, but by your field of expertise and as well the fountain of different creatures you unleash, combinded with the rather simple or at least not so mathematically strict forms and shapes they can take again combined with all the colours and patterns and all those possibilities-chooch that was a long sentence-so,by all those factors, your work's extremely inspiring and fueling that certain "what am I doing, I want to-I need to PAINT!"-feeling.
So, uh, it's..really really great.
Can't wait finding the time to use my brandnew intarrwebs and scan what's new.

you just brought me years backwards with this piece and Its just amazing how much it made me think of Dinotopia and the old picture books and this piece just fits so well I could have turned the page and saw this. just fantastic and thank you for the nostalgia ride. I seriously appreciated this.

Thanks, you're v.welcome, Dinotopia's quite timeless, I'm always surprised some people haven't heard of it.

Looks like a sort of griffin who's part ibis or something instead of part eagle.

Thanks, - well, i thought if its wearing the hood then it will be sedate, maybe it'll kick off when it hears how cheap its being sold for.

Yeah, that's probably what would happen... He freaks out when he realizes he's only being sold for $250.
