Slowly, silently, now the moon
Walks the night in her silver shoon;
This way, and that, she peers, and sees
Silver fruit upon silver trees;
One by one the casements catch
Her beams beneath the silvery thatch;
Couched in his kennel, like a log,
With paws of silver sleeps the dog;
From their shadowy cote the white breasts peep
Of doves in silver feathered sleep
A harvest mouse goes scampering by,
With silver claws, and silver eye;
And moveless fish in the water gleam,
By silver reeds in a silver stream. 

- Walter de la Mare


There is a beauty in words, something artistic. 

When I read upon a well woven paragraph, I see glimpses of fantastical events, fragile emotions, evocative world. How I wish to one day be able to do the same in my work.

Cavern Expedition

Finally manage to complete the painting.. halfway I had a story for a cavern mining expedition bumping onto an underground rat monster in my mind so I made the changes into the color key and more changes in the final painting.

Face Value Study 13

I could not get the same subtle contour on the face.

Dragon's parade

Dragon's parade!

I was imagining a world where dragon exists. What kind of world will that be? One thing for sure, we will "humanely" exploit them for our entertainment! Most probably we might be using them as a sport and of course gambling!

Yet I didnt want to show them in a negative light so I chose a more festive feel. (Since my birthday just past and I am feeling really happy!) So I thought what if they have a parade after they won the race? Just like when you played chocobo racing or mario kart the winner will go around the laps, with the victory song blaring out!

This first idea came from sketch ideation sessions that I had as a break after work.
It was a truly fruitful sessions as I had a couple of ideas that I really liked and enjoyed from the sketches. I might take some of them and flesh them out more in the future.

Its really rough but if you are interested I have placed it below.

After the sketch ideation, I refined the sketch and the color blocked the sketch. After that I slowly refined it to what you see above. :)

I kinda used up all my time between the painting and hanging out w fams, instead of the dailies.. now I have to try to repay the debt!! (Manage to catch up w my dailies!)
