Wow, really beautiful work! Love the guy with the lion, and the studies are really beautiful--it feels like every stroke is significant. You capture emotion really well, too.

Tygerson - Thank you!! I've always thought emotion was my weakest link, so it means a lot to me when you say that!!

Heyyyyyy! Haven't uploaded in a while. Been crazy busy with moving out and in. Enrolling in a university and actually starting my studies. Now that everything has calmed down expect.a.STORM.OF.DRAWINGS!!! Right, no more talking. Let's get on with it.

First, I'm gonna throw some 1 hour life studies at ya!

first impressions of your sketchbook:
Fuuuuuuuuuarrrkr=ryugreusgr! O______O

Man you have a very interesting style - makes you want to look at images for a good long while, which I find is hard to do nowadays with the barrage of wonderful artworks here on the internet.

Great update, looking forward to seeing more from you ^ ^!

your practise is coming allong nicely. Your linework is getting really good aswell also great hand studies ;P

I do has to bitch about some of your studies. It seems like you do everything right( color, porportion) but just dont focus on were the light is actually coming from. let the contrast shape the form not brush direction
Yarrnick - Yeaaah, buddy, you're right. I really need to start thinking more when I'm doing the screencaps. Tnx for stopping by! :)

figure studieeeeees

and a video

Wow, the amount of studies and paintings your putting out is very inspiring! I loved the one of the lady breathing the dragon soul too! Keep up the awesome work man!

nice going babe, It looks like your more focusing on the light. also the "lady mounting the last dragon" scene has very realistic colours, gj.
Mayenia - Thank you! Yeah, I'm intending to seriously rework that one. It's kind of way too sketchy for my taste :P

Yarrnick - Thanks! HODOR

What? Is that?...No...It can't be! But it IS! Two more painting videos by Othrandir!!


Your silhouettes and anatomy are great! Only one thing tho, maybe you shoudn't use airbrush so much on some of the screencaps(the earlier ones mostly)? Otherwise you have so much inspirational stuff, keep it coming!
RyeBread - What do you mean by the airbrush? Sorry, I never understood what that was. I'm such an idiot... :D
