    He seems a little heavy-set for a dragon. Square-cube law and all that rot.

    Now *that* reminds me of Clash of the Titans and all those Sinbad movie monsters that Ray Harryhausen created, which is really cool too.

    Thanks Arcana! One of the lessons learned is to take a lot more trouble over choice of source material in the future! Time permitting, I'll have another go over the weekend at something new. - And thanks for the link, I'm definitely going to learn a lot from there!

    Getting better Rav,

    I like the water paint effect that unless I miss the point is should be the result of the sea mist create by the wave on the rock.

    Here's two compositions I made last year when I was in Kingston. The first one is from the game I was running and the second is a wallpaper of my old world.
    I don't know if it apply to what you’re doing here because I only merge many pics together, but take a look and have fun.

    In any case continue to improve,
    Alu.

    That's kind, Alu - but I think it's getting worse! This picture just seems 'wrong' on so many levels. The thing I'm most proud of is the horses saddle which I painted by hand. I wasn't sure what I wanted to do with the mist on the sea but it just looks stuck on. Worse still the perspective on the promentory is out. The whole thing just looks really dull. The worst thing is when you know something is wrong but you don't know exactly what and what you need to do to fix it.

    Ah well, it's all a learning experience! Most importantly, I had fun doing it.

    I'm sorry, but I have to thread jack for a moment.

    Clash of the Titans--one of Top Five movies of 1980, guaranteed!

    Quick, someone! Name two of the other Top Five from 1980. (I'm going to feel REALLY stupid if one or both of the two movies that I'm thinking of aren't from 1980.)
