Panticore Attack

So finally I have finished my Panticore painting.  I have retooled this piece quite a bit from it's conception, and I am quite happy with the final product.  I have only painting one other horse in my life, I think, and I really like how he came out.  This piece made me realize how I missed painting action. And blood.  Blood is fun.

Panticore Attack Sketch

I really liked the ideas Scott had for my piece, so I cropped in a bit and gave more perspective to the panther's wings.  Can't wait to start working on this, it's been so long since I've done a real action piece.  Thanks for all the help.

Lis's Baba Yaga drawing

Hello! So I finished my drawing (unless there are any major edits) and have transferred it to the watercolor paper. Here it is:

OK Owen is Startin' Fresh

So this is why having this blog is great.  My drawing for my current painting was riddled with flaws, and my blog partners were nice enough to let me know what was wrong with it.  It wasn't very dynamic, didn't have enough angles and the perspective was predictable.  Although it is really tough to admit when one's composition isn't working, one has to move past it and take advantage of good constructive criticism.  I want this to be a great piece, so I have trashed the last one and am starting over.  I think this one is much better.

The panther character is attacking a flying horse and rider in mid-air.  The winged horse will have armor as will the falling rider.  Basically a Barye sculpture in the air.  What I can't quite decide on is the background color.  Green:

or Brown:

I would just like to thank my friends for letting me know when a composition isn't working, 'cause we all need to help each other out, especially in such a competitive world.  Criticizing art of any form is tough to do, it hurts people's feelings and makes them feel inadequate.  But doing it in a constructive way helps us become better artists.  I feel this is a better composition and a better use of my time.  Please let me know if I should change anything.
