Every time I would scan something it didn't look right but I just thought it was a matter of the picture looking better in person.

I cannot recall ever using color paper as a mid-tone. So let me know what you think. I don't have a place for this drawing, so if you can find a home for it, great. Just check with Solo first, just in case he has a place for it.Sphinx_by_MWByouk.png
This is wonderful. Nice use of colored paper. It is kind of magical when it works. Sometimes I have trouble getting the whites to pop, especially on the lighter tone paper. And with the darker tone, it can be tricky to get the darks to show.

But wonderful work, sorry to digress.
I knew I had a problem when I tried to scan the drawing and I didn't get the proper contrast. You are right, when it works it looks good. I was just messing around with this drawing trying to figure out if this was something I wanted to try again later. I still think it looks better in person.
If I may commiserate: my stuff always looks better to me in person than when I photograph it. Delicate pencil shading definitely.

This reminds me of Moebius work. Could've been in Heavy Metal magazine back in the day!

Great coloring.

Once again you pointed out something I didn't see but you are right about the Moebius vibe.

Here is an elf archer. I wanted to do something in ink before I start the Tusker/Polar Boar illustration. I'm not sure if I really like working with ink, but let me know what you think.

Quite Nice!
Is it really the end, not some crazy dream?

It's gorgeous!

But, shouldn't she be looking at her target? Or is she using the Force? :D

Sighting with one eye. The other one, obviously. :D

That works.

I just can't let go of the opportunity to restate how absolutely gorgeous that picture is! Even the foliage is amazing!
