Holy shit. Art like that remind me I'll remain a dwarf (lol) in a land of giants for quite some years onward. Absolutely amazing.

I'd be interested to see you draw. I'm sure I can learn plenty from your method. Do you have any accelerated painting videos available?

Can I just swoon all over these pieces? They are all masterworks of the finest quality.

(obviously, I hope you keep improving if there's room for it. Go, go, go!)

Bloody amazing, and dare I say, easily up there with the best DF artpieces. I'm curious to see if you attempt a landscape/non-portrait piece.

There are tons of things to improve :(

No, my laptop already struggles with running Photoshop. Adding recording software on top of that would probably melt the poor thing.

That's amazing, damn. You never cease to impress.

I especially love the ruined parts of the town - hope someday in adventure mode we can experience megabeast attacks on towns firsthand.

This may very well be some of the best DF artwork I've ever seen. These pics should by all rights be illustrating an epic fantasy novel rather than just a gaming forum thread.

It's actually pretty terrifying to think about having all of your fat melt off into grease because you started sweating too much.

Yeah, I'm not master art critic or anything but these illustrations are seriously awesome. I keep staring at the faces, they convey a ton of emotion/character. You are seriously talented.

One of my last forts was a giant library where I accepted all incoming scholars and set many dwarves to scribe and publish their own books.  get the latest DF version as it has several library fixes.

[EDIT]
Oh... and your art is amazing!

Thank you everyone!

Yeah, I don't like it when a lot of people recycle the same face and same expression for 90% of their characters. It's boring.

Here's another one. Cacame Awemedinade the Immortal Onslaught:

I really like how tired and grim, for lack of a better word, his expression looks - fits in with his backstory. Great job!

Yes! Been a while since I've seen some decent Cacame artwork. Exquisite, as always.

BTW what's the skull his foot is on meant to be from? Almost looks like some kind of theropod dinosaur.

IMO he ticks every box in the "Byronic hero" definition. Tragic past and lost love are a bonus.

It's something in between an archeopteryx and velociraptor skull. It's just how I picture beak dogs - big feathered beaked dinosaurs with teeth.

I remember when that original Cacame thread was posted. It's been a while...

The beak dog skull would seem pretty accurate - they're basically this thing from Golden Axe, only with rainbow, blotchy skin. They're also the size of gorillas.
