    how you have the lion posed is very stiff and boring and is really taking away from the peice as a whole. I would really work some more on the posing of all the charters

    Enochian...Just having some fun with my works in my SKETCHBOOK is all i'm doing, while at the same time capturing whatever thoughts come into my mind while i'm having that fun..sometimes things work out, and sometimes they don't...That's the nature of the game I play,..but I do learn a little something new from each one that I play with, and in the end, that is what really matters the most to me..Sketchbooks are for exploring,experimenting, and most importantly, for daring to try new things out, in the way of composition, or whatever.
    I'm sorry that you find that one boring..It wasn't boring in the movie that I got the idea for the composition from..The Ghost and The Darkness with Val Kilmer and Michel Douglas...I used the same compositional set up as is in the movie..Maybe it's just the lack of the lions roar as he jumps from the darkness that is making this composition boring to you.
    I thought it was pretty dynamic myself..in the movie, and in my piece.
    A strong diaginal for action,..the L shape repeated in the rock and skeletons,..and in the shape of the antelope..point of tension between rider , arrow, and lion ect....
    Anyway, it's just an experiment and exploration, and alot of fun learning in the process...nothng more, and nothing less.
    Dare to let yourself make mistakes, or you will never learn anything new.

    Baller...I don't know what aouija board is, but in any case, I don't have it..

    "Zbrush", few years passed, a new way of digital art is here and guess what. We have lot of 'puritans' already. 'Puritans' of art. Zbrushers 'they' call them. But zbrush is more or less just an instrument of art, nothing more. Its not a style or a movement. This is how it should be and this is how it is IMO.

    Keep the good work SpiritDreamer. Be cool man.
    BTW You should visit my mother's apartment, lot of 'nature mort' almost like these, believe it or not. I always wanted to paint these but you did it alright.

    THANKS Michalis.. Stay cool..You bet..Life is too short to do otherwise..at least mine is anyway...

    Here are some KARATE moves that I learned years ago but still remember, and have only had to use in real life a couple of times,..in self defense of course...worked like a charm...a lucky one for me, but not so lucky for the people who messed with me.. I learned them at a studio in Boston where I live, which was run by A GREAT GUY AND MASTER named Billy Blanks ...One on one private lessons...cost alot more, but was well worth it..
    The figure is from imagination, no references used,other than my own memory.
