first is a fantasy commission I did for a girl on DA. she asked for her two characters, fighting in an abandoned village with zombies and monsters. and it was quite a challenge actually. first of all, I had to draw a medieval fantasy village. she gave me some references for the houses so it made things easier, but still, drawing destroyed architecture isn't the easiest thing. then, I had to come up with an action scene, which isn't exactly my forte^^; but I have to practice somehow^^; zombies were a little difficult to draw, as I never drew decaying body and the subject itself is a little edgy for me. trolls on the other hand were very fun to design. I had to look up designs on DA or google to make something gross and terrifying. included gorilla's screaming face, because they have very unique facial features that make them pretty scary^^; and had lots of fun with several brushes to add some texture to their skin to make it look harder and thicker than normal. so yeah, it was a little different from most pictures I do. and it includes blood again, no idea why people want it, I can't even draw blood><

this one I did for myself. because I wanted to finally make a colored pic for my own pleasure, with my own characters. it was difficult, because I made it a crowd scene again and included lots of details to it>< it was a little painful, drawing all this, but that's because I happened to be working on it during a difficult time for me and it usually happened in the evenings, when I got back home from work. but still, it gave me a lot of pleasure to draw. I could finally draw Nash' freckles in color. give Bruce his ridiculous pink shirt. work on different characters in the BG. I hope they differ from each other enough to make a believable crowd. all in all, it was very pleasing working on it. finally all my kids on one picture in color^^

As someone who grew up reading comic books and fight scenes, I love the first illustration. Let me say that first. Now, the shading on both illos is lovely; you can definitely see light source, and shading gives a well-rounded feel to any illustration.

The movement in the first illustration is very in-your-face. Our Intrepid Heroes are fighting for their lives, obviously, and maybe they'll have a chance to win if they can get into some of those buildings. The background suits the illustration very well, and I love the mountain and the castle, both giving the impression of height and balance.

The second illustration is such fun! I already told you how much I liked the background characters; each of them appears to have their own life and it's almost like a photograph snapped somewhere. The movement in this is a lot of fun, full of teasing and good cheer. The light makes me think it's mid-morning, maybe; it doesn't feel bright enough for afternoon.

thank you, I really appreciate your comment about it :)

as for the second picture, crowd consists of individuals that each has their own life and personality, I wanted it to be as close to reality as possible. and I know it looks like a photo. sadly, all my pictures look like this, I can't come up with anything more ambitious...

Photographic art isn't a bad thing, though!

Maybe you should try doing a doujin?
