Hey Robb, this one is AWESOME!!! Another great job!!



The details are so good and the idea and theme of this one really hits you! I love the chief up front as well!! Great! And the rain blowing in the wind over the rocks. You almost feel their angst and desperation.
The color is frickin nice as well.
Cool man cool!!

Love seeing your progress!
Keep em coming.

Thanks everybody, they're nicer words than my stuff deserves, but much appreciated.




I've got some commission-type stuff cookin' but managed these two little sketches:





"Jungle Pastel 1" - 9x12".

To me this looks like an old animation background.






"Jungle Pastel 2" - 9x12".

This guy I'd started before but left sitting around while I did other stuff. It was rough when we last saw it, especially the waterfall, which looked like a perfect ribbon hanging down - this is more like it.





I'm happy with the touch of brownish water on the right. It makes the water look more like something real.

Ok Robb, Jungle #1 is my new favorite. Definitely looks liek a high quality animation BG or matte painting. I love the use of color on the tree trunks. Spectacular, my friend.

because they're so perfect!
Great COLOR AND MYSTERY on both-especially the first one with the tree..
awesome pastels there!

Phenomenal work! I can almost see Kong passing through the
background of Jungle Pastel #1.

In-friggin-credible Robb.

The mood that "Monsoon Nightmare" is amazing.

The detail work... the colors... the animation...

All excellent.

Nice work, sir.

And the new pastels 'ain't too shabby either.

GROG agree. Your stuff looks great. The jungle pastel definitely looks like an animation BKG or developement art for animation.

You're hired.

those are quite good drawings you have there.....but without one of your solemn little tikis hiding out in the foliage, it's just a very nice looking landscape drawing....you have the skills, man...no question about that.....now get back on track and feed us a steady diet of those wonderful tiki velvets you do......we're gettin hungry out here!!


...and i don't care if you are tired of painting them...do it anyway!!
