Wow! Your older styles ranged from good to increasingly great, but your current style is on the level of mastery. Such deadsure handling of poses, composition, lighting, shading and not least colours! Beutiful to behold. Nothing short of it! Vivid imagination, captivating glimpses of stories and fantastic art show. Obviously following. This gallery is one brilliant, multifaceted gem.
You seem to have a deft hand at exploring new concepts, such as the chitin-riding tribe paintings that grips the eyes for so long when one looks at them. I'm quite certain you're way too busy with personal and commercial work (as is proper, at such a high level of illustrations you truly deserve to earn well by working in art!) for this to be of interest, but noticing what astounding quality you have achieved in 30 minute speedpaint exercises makes me hazard a tip nevertheless.
Are you familiar with Warhammer Fantasy? That setting, being replaced by the more MTG & steampunkish Treasure Planet universe of Age of Sigmar, is sort of rising like a phoenix from the ashes left by the End Times. It has a spiritual succesor called the Ninth Age (T9A), which is a community-driven non-profit wargame and setting, quite much a mirror world but with differences and new takes. It's very much a collaboration of various creative people, and is still very much in the formative stages. T9A aims to drive the historically based themes deeper than Warhammer did (and also sports some more fantastic themes such as Fire Daemon-possessed Infernal Dwarf cult berzerkers), including Terracotta armies, Byzantine ratmen, an elaborate fantasy Viking/Åskland army type and Ethiopian fantasy Dwarves. As to the latter, enter Kegiz Gavem: www.the-ninth-age.com/index.ph…
Ethiopia sports a rather ancient and fascinating history complete with monumental stone architecture (some of it cut straight out of the rock), very old cults surviving and thriving in isolation, tenacious written tradition and mountainous highlands. All of which parallells fantasy Dwarves. It's basically a brand new concept, and a theme wide open for daring artists' very own interpretations. I've doodled some quick stuff, and Sergio Artigas has already shared a great vision of it. Here is a folder with some reference pictures of various sorts, in case of interest: imgur.com/a/eYDo7pX
The more, the merrier: We'd love to have several artists share their very own interpretation of the theme of Ethiopian fantasy Dwarves. It's a good chance to make one's visionary mark on an emerging fantasy niche, too. So should you ever wish to attempt some quick artwork for such a concept, then know that anything you'd like to share will be warmly welcomed by T9A.
Just mentioning if it would be the least bit intriguing. In any case, stellar artwork all round! Magnificient work! Have a good day.
