Lovely style you've got in the first 3 especially.
Jassar- thanks. I study architecture but hopefully I won't ever be an architect...
PG0 bot eating the fruit is funny!
that troll behind the mountain is good, IMO; as you have a really glowing magical gem close to the face, you could give bit more detail to face to pull out the troll face more.
i really liked you traditional straight line style!
truely good stuff.
The watercolors are really impressive.
Nice work all around, but I'm really loving the watercolors. It looks like really smooth paper...what kind did you use? What are the actual dimensions? Great work.

molemansd7- thanks. The paper was smooth. I like this kind of paper, but I don't remember its name. I only recall that it was produced in Poland and it was quite chip
All the watercolors are about 40cm wide..
I never really liked watercolors as a medium as it often produces ugly, abstract looking things that seem to appeal to some people for reasons I'll never fully understand, but a talented artist who puts the lines in the right places can do some pretty realistic stuff with watercolors, and it's a great medium for suggesting light and shade. My favorite images above, however are those fantasy-type landscapes done digitally. Digital is my fave, but acrylic is the best traditional painting medium, imho. Keep posting. I like your stuff.
the watercolor pieces are gorgeous! i especially like the michael myers looking guy from your digital work. what program do you use?
Dahami- thanks I can't say that I agree with You about watercolors. I think that those "ugly, abstract looking things" give a certain charm to watercolor paintings. And to be honest those "things", if used in proper way, can be a very powerful tool. I steel want to lear how to achieve that but don't use watercolors that much these days... I'll have to change that.
And I don't think that there is really "the best traditional painting medium". It depends on individual preferences and on what You want to achieve with one medium or another...
inmygucci- thanks! I use Painter X
hi nice work's, I loved your water color works and i liked the way you have left the paper white and the still life .
Ahhh love the watercolors, man, excellent works!

oh my god your watercolours are to die for!!! I wish I could capture MY trip to Italy that way... Magnificent stuff man... Just awe inspiring!!!!
How do you have so much control, over the watercolor, like o my gosh, your just too dame good you bastard, just kidding, but for real, how did you do it. 5 in my book.
Look, Iam diet drama, want to spend tha night dont bring pajamas, man there's so much heat beneath clothes, you see me !
JesArt Sketchbook, go have a gander..
nice to know that my watercolors are so much appreciated I'm thinking of deleting all of my digital work posted here because it seems that nobody notices its presence;]
JesArt- thanks! I think that it's just a matter of experience and good planning of Your work... (in Poland to become a student of architecture You have to pass some exams and the drawing/ painting part is the most important. Watercolor seems to be the favorite technic of polish architects... So before taking my exams I was practicing for over a year. I did tons of watercolors..:]). You have to know exactly what part has to be painted first and what next, and so on... Sometimes You have to work fast and sometimes be patient and wait until the paint is dry.... You just need to practice (and so do I...):]
The last piece is just great, probably my favorite of everything you posted. I love the colors, the gestures and positions of the little monkeys are good. You can tell there is some drama going down there, like shit is going DOWN! Fuckin get him!! Must get ..out, must escape with....banana !
It might be worth your while to soften up some of the edges of those swirly clouds in the background, at first glance they seem really close close to the monkeys and other background elements despite their obvious change in saturation and value. A little softening (but not so much as to lose any graphic qualities) might help that...that's just my opinion of course. Great piece though. Oh, and great job catching that bounce light from the bananas to the ape, I feel like it's overplayed, but I wouldn't change that, it really works.... brings more attention to the newly acquired treasure anyways.
