Whats a WIP?

P.S. Myth and Magic is already better then I could do by far. Now I'm just wondering what else is left for you to do in it. Also, just wondering, will there be anymore depth to it? As in, will there be other trees/rocks/landscape in the distance? Just curious.

@Helen yes a unicorn would be lovely in this ....but its not on my list for this image. :lol: I'll be working away in the background on some other little bits and pieces. (separate pdn's) that will end up in this image.

@AFG I actually looked for a good image of the Scottish Red Deer but couldn't find anything big enough for my eyes to really focus on. So I did 1/2 white tail deer and the semi colors of the red deer. It was the rack that took me forever to find in an image. I'm sure the ladies at the library thought I'd gone daft with having them bring in all the past volumn of the Field and Stream magazine. I knew I'd seen one buck with the perfect pose previously.

@Barbieq yes I get inspiration from all around me. often books and art shows really get my creative juices going. Quite often songs will really hit a cord. Especially if I'm home alone and just rocking and singing at the top of my off tune little squeaky voice.

@Chad hope its going to turn out. Would be a real bad thing to name it an inspiration of John Howe art and I don't do the man's genuis justice. I knew he was involved in The Lord of the Rings cinematic production, but all the book covers Wow! I hadn't realized he had done the covers for Garry Kilworth books, you may have read some "The Welkin Weasels Thunder Oak" and the Welkin Weasels Windjammer run" One of my favourite covers is on the David Gemmell book "Sword in the Storm" That bear and the knight are so beautiful.

@Hi Bjarni, welcome to my gallery. I just added another wip picture. so you can see a little bit more has been done.

much much more to finish. As I said to Helen above there are now new separate pdn's started for little bits and pieces for adding down the road. I tend to work on several items at the same time.

@Ryberg360 thanks you I'm glad you stopped by for a visit. You come by anytime there is usually something on the go here.

@0(-.-)0 :lol: WIP is work in progress. and this ones a doozy :lol:

ciao OMA

PS wip picture 7 added pg 79

I'm glad it's just not me who saw the face ... I didn't like to say anything in case people thought I'm stranger than they do now :P

As I said in PM OMA ... this is going to be another superb piece

(why you should keep that crown :wink: )

@Sokagirl :lol: yes it is still an open canvas. so many things to pick from to add, I'm not absolutly sure what will make the final cut. :lol:

@AFG :lol: so you felt someone looking at you :lol: Oh that's how I feel sometimes I'm sure you PDN Fanatics have a hidden camera in my computor room watching all my paint.net moves over my shoulder. .

@Welshblue, :lol: yes there is a face in there. Think it will likely get redone a bit more grim and a tad bigger, if I feel like it at the end after all the other work is complete. There was a skull like image in the sky but I've mucked around with the clouds so much I'll have to re add that again at the end. I'm not sure if the wip show it or if I managed to cover it . anyways it will come back near the end if there is room. :lol:

@Possum Roadkill :lol: are you trying to trick me into drawing a possum? :lol: not a chance, I'm going to tackle that one. :lol:

@Briamoth, thanks you, you know there was a time when I couldn't draw a stick if I had to. And it wasn't all that long ago. I made it my goal to learn, and read every book the local library had on drawing and painting. The best books I've found so far for beginners are by Jack Hamm. I took them out at the library so often, my family finally bought me my own for a gift. If you give this info to the librarian I'm sure they can bring in this book for you thru interlibrary loan.

"How to draw Animals by Jack Hamm ISBN 0-399-50802-3" you will really like it I'm sure. Maybe you might even go buy yourself this book :lol:

0(-.-)0 :lol: I told you it was a myth and magic inspiration. Its inspired by John Howe's art. He often has little images hidden away.

-----------------------

I've redone the grass section as previous version of grass and boulders wasn't looking correct. It wasn't leaving me enough area for the stone bridge I wanted Took a bit rethinking that section. I had to learn how to draw a bridge. Very time consuming piling up all them rocks :lol:

so have added new image of the work in progress on pg 79 ... now I'm off to work on the next additions.

ciao OMA

@theonlychad glad you liked this dragon. I got sidetracked from my original and just played tonight.

@Helen thanks you. I entered in the challenge. not sure it qualifies, but thought you might like to see what I'd been playing at instead of working on my Myth and Magic picture.

@Barbie I know how much you like dragons. :lol: and its nice of you to say best dragon image, I think he is pretty nice myself. :lol:

@Welsh, thanks you, It was a real work of pleasure this one. Took a break from the other image I'd been doing on fans and morphed it into something else as a play piece.

@Possum thanks you also. I know I promised a dragon tut ages ago , but it won't be this fellow toooooooo long for a tut.

thanks for nice words everyone.

tomorrow its back to Myth and Magic image.

ciao OMA

Oma! For Myth and Magic, I think the tree looks amazing since you took the boulders out. Love the texture and lighting on the trunk. I also really like the perspective and contrast the bridge adds, and I like the trees in front of the bridge. I'm excited to see what else you do to it. :)

And I would also like a dragon tut! :D

@Bjarni thanks you I like the dragon very much as well. He is part of my 3rd self challenge for the year 2010. I will be doing more of this same dragon for myth and magic image, only he is in color. This "solid dragon tear" I showed was just a play around piece I tried to enter Helen's challenge on Fans. Perhaps tihis also will work its way into the myth and magic as part of the frame along with the fl size version of colored dragon, Then again maybe not :lol:

@Soaka girl thanks you about bridge, took me many frustrated attempts to draw. I'm glad you like dragon, some wip on Fans site. I'll move them over here after I get finished a bit more.

@LibbyH thanks you very much. the tree trunk I was trying for mossy look old and knarly. Think its not too bad, As its going to be back a bit yet (middle ground) after I add next section of the myth and magic picture I didn't stress as much over the bark.

If I do a dragon tut it will be very long and I'm not even sure I could scoot it down to a reasonalble level.

will think on it some more. It might just be an question and answer style thing after I've totally finished.

ciao OMA

ps the dragon they are talking about is a diversion piece page 80 will possibly be included in myth and magic.
