I'm a little late to the thread, but these are just excellent! I really liked the hunter, he had a slight Vaughn Bode vibe going on :)

One of my art instructors back in College actually worked for Disney during the Bluth period and absolutely hated it, so maybe you made the right choice there.

By the way, I noticed Hal has graciously left the title of site artist with me even though I've gotten tied up in other things and haven't been hitting the forums as much lately. I certainly wouldn't be offended if it were to be passed on.

Hal: You should make this post "sticky" so new people have a nice vision of the party.


Agreed and done :D

I don't think there can ever be too many site artists..even Im considering having a go, bearing in mind I can only draw fashion figures..

That would be Elves then..

As the tangled bit of string said, "Sorry, I'm a frayed knot." :D

To be honest I rarely work in colour at all, generally using watercolour or pencil crayons if I do.

Late again! Lindsay, what little color stuff I do usually has some Prismacolor in it. The picture of Feylin & the dragon has some light marker stuff overlayed heavily with Prismacolor pencils. I'm hardly an expert on markers, though. If you're school didn't give you a book on markers, I picked up some good tips from Marker Rendering Techniques by Powell & Monahan. It's old, but you might find it at the library.

A bit late to this party, mainly because my PC does weird things with new forum posts (ie doesn't show them as new once I look at any one new post) but WOW!!!! Top stuff BJB.

As someone who was once described by their art teacher as shit, I have deep envy for artistic skill. Not just BJB, but Pencil-Monkey, Lindsay and anyone else who I have missed out who has proper talent.

Good job everyone.

Well I am not usually big on the short guys but Durok... hmmmmm I may have to find out what is under the short shorts.

Great art by the way.
I am trying my hand at drawing and this is quite the inspiration to practice more.

I've been meaning to make this post since I first saw this thread (but it's taken me this long to dig it out).

The style of these portraits reminds me of a birthday card I once recieved:
