These are still my absolute favourites. Perhaps I'm partial because it's Tolkien, hehe!

Maybe when The Hobbit comes around at the end of the year, it will spark some fire to that again. :D

Yeah - I have plans for a few Hobbit oriented pieces if I can free up from other projects/commissions. These days I tend to go where the money is :/ I'm sure that will change come this summer :) I have the rest of the Endless to work on now :)

Exciting! I've been thinking a lot about Desire lately too, for my Endless series, but the challenge is portraying her without actually portraying her. :B
Love your Destiny illustration. Absolutely perfect.

Wow, I read the comments about giving the paper an "aged" feeling. :wow:
I love the angle in this and the colour of the paper really adds to it! :clap:

This is on that lovely brown kraft paper? What's your favorite brand of pencils?

This is actually done on white and composited onto a photographed paper that I bought and "aged" with tea to give it an olde feel.

Pencils I love - I tend to use pure-leads - not sure who makes them - I'll drop a note when I get home and can check :)

Painting with tea eh? I'll have to try that. I normally use bristol board vellum instead of watercolor paper.

For watercolor work - I tend to use arches, hot press or medium press if I can find it (it's a bit rarer). The tea was just used to stain the paper, actually. That and coffee can be used to give paper an aged look.

I'm so bad. I have watercolor paper but I don't remember is cold press, hot press, etc is my favorite.

In general the hot press stuff tends to be smoother than the cold press paper - less texture.

Really? Well I have to invest in some of that because I like it the smoother the better.
