Hey man I've been following your work and think it's pretty great. Your use of color is fantastic, your characters are well portrayed, and the style you have is pretty interesting as well. Your paintings are very well defined. Keep up the great work! Have you thought about doing any tutorials? I'm sure people would really like them.
Thanks Bryan, I haven't actually made a visual step by step yet although I've done several extremely boring live demos at my school haha. I might do a tutorial once I graduate and can grab some spare time to make a good one.
I would like to let you know that you have gained a new fan. I found this Rivendell painting several months ago in a general search for elven desktop backgrounds. But I had a very difficult time figuring out whose art it was until today.This piece probably makes me the happiest of any lotr-inspired art I've seen. It's so joyful and clean-looking. I just love your style. So, thank you for being awesome!
