The colours are splendid.  It's amazing that Daniel is recognisable even though he is so unformed.

Don't want to elongate the post hehe-
Spoiler

These are really beautiful paintings. I really love your use of colors in the first and second especially and the loose painterly feel to them. Your portraits also remind me of Zhang Lu's in that there's a soft airy feel to them, you might like his work! Great work overall, may request a painting in the future. =)

I most of the times post the timelenght on deviantart if you want to check. Most of them take between 2-4 hours. The two I'm posting underneath only took about 30 minutes each.

I love Zhang Lu, specially this one is strongly inspired by him. He has such a great style.
And thanks :)



Here are some quickies, trying out new colors. Also, my iMac has returned to me! So now I can see colors well again, and see that the one with the Asuran Fireworks is wayyyy too dark.

Really great new art pieces, Tommy!   You're becoming downright prolific :)   The Orr piece is especially striking, very eerie and full of menace.   Neat self-portrait too!

Thanks Overlord! Not making any promises, perhaps I have a painting over one of your comic characters coming up :)

Here is a quick sketch of a setting I imagined Alacrity in.

Really fantastic pictures again. I'm really really loving the pictures you posted on the 14th and 18th of January.
I'm a big fan :'D Happen to have a Facebook for your art? (or anything else) I'd love to follow you actively.

Tommy! <3 Your stuff has gotten so good. I'm jealous of your talent :D I haven't done any art in ages.

I would love to see what you could do with my characters, if they inspire you at all...

First is my main, a sylvari mesmer named Liusaidh. She's a spring-time sylvari born during the cycle of Dusk, and as a result is interested in learning everything she can (moreso than most sylvari) and joined the Priory. She was swayed a bit by the Nightmare Court initially, but after seeing the horrors of the things they've done she quickly abandoned that before they could get their claws into her. Despite being highly intelligent and well-read, she has a habit of spacing out and is incredibly easily distracted. She's a bit of a space case at times. She's also a pretty, pretty flower :D Her glow is a very bright, intense white.

The second is my human thief, Janan Savitri. The name should be familiar as you are well-acquainted with my GW1 characters ;) She's descended from my GW1 Dervish. When Joko first made a big push to take over Elona, the Savitri clan fled Vabbi to Kryta, taking refuge there. The monarch at the time not only granted them leave to live there, but ennobled the family as well in memory of what their ancestor had done many years before. Janan's older sister had been a member of the Seraph that had gone missing, and Janan turned to the shadows to try and find what had happened. She still worships Lyssa, as her family always has, though she finds it troubling that the gods have all but vanished.

I have loads of other characters (I have 11 total right now...those two posted are two of my four 80s and I'm halfway through a fifth), but those are the ones I think you'd have the most fun with. Plus one's a charr so I know you wouldn't draw her.

Great new pic Tommy.   I love the contrast of the ground and sky and how the giant seems to blend in with it.

And I can't help the captions popping into my head.  "You charge him Bob, I'll stand on the hill and distract him with my flag' ;)
