Enworld- Busts of Races

Thumbnails. The challenge will be the stony look.
How a sculptor has to get tricky with depicting flimsy things like leaves.
Onward to photoshop

Half-Elf talking to birds.

Very odd. I was completely done on this and realized I changed my approach. Working with color from the start instead of colorizing a grayscale. Weird mental hiccup. Would have been better to start as a grayscale.

Marty. See what I mean about my comment "fallingoff a log easy compared to what you're doing."

I'm going to flip the lefthand horn on the faun. Make it face the other way

Ellis! These look great! I love the variation. They look like sculptures--are you going to make them all look like they're carved out of stone? Is this another commission? It's fantastic you're keeping so busy with this stuff. Very D&D!

I realized that I had jumped to the conclusion he wanted staues by using the word busts. But when I reread he further described colors and I knew I was assuming statues. Quick question via email confirmed it. He liked it so I'm happy. Got another one to do.

Thanks Marty. They still have that vignette of form a statue bust might have on the chest.

I like the half elf talking to the birds Ellis. I'm not so sure that coloring a gray scale version would have gotten you any better results.

Thanks Tom. Color is always going to be a challenge however I slice it.
