I always enjoyed the artwork in the forums so I thought I join

Most of these were done just for personal project and just for fun

Methinks the images are broken, might wanna fix 'em.

EDIT: That or the browser I'm using is being a pain in the butt. Well I hard-viewed the images and they look really really spiff! Looks almost like Pascal's sort of character design, but with a different background style. It's really gorgeous.

These are great images! Just great stuff, puts a smile on my face. Like Dark said, reminds me a little of Pascal's great work, but has a vibe all its own, and great color sense.

NOTE to all attempting to view them - they don't seem to come up inline, which makes them appear like broken links. You'll have to jump through some hoops to see them, right click on them and say View Image or something. However, they are worth the work, so... work.

n the last one... it's a strange effect with the very stylised trees and the lady and the more realistic approach on the tree in the foreground and the scooter. I'm not gonna say what I think about it because I honestly am not all that sure, it's just...strange.

But overall I like them all, especially that last one.

i think it gives it quite a sense of placement and space and dimension.
