You'd think I would be smart enough to write the themes out to suit the pictures I've taken lately, but I can only find two themes to match anything of mine so far. I'll have to go out and find something for the last genre!

Title: "The Long Road"
Genre: Dark
Artist: GoheX

Ok, GoheX never makes categories that fit anything I paint :P so I'm going to squeeze this one into 'Dark'. I'll paint something specifically for one of the categories this week.

Yeah, you've certainly come on a lot (not to say you were anywhere near bad before!).

Love the cloak especially - just fantastic. Would be awesome to see a live stream of you working on something like this if you get the chance =D

No probs dude, check out idrawgirls.com too thats where I first learned some digital painting techniques from he also has a youtube channel: http://www.youtube.com/user/idrawgirls (http://www.youtube.com/user/idrawgirls) (the terminator I didn't do any id markings on, just tried to get good lighting, I guess from the colour he could be Black Legion)

Val, I'll see about doing something this weekend, there are a couple of quick speed paints up on the vtw youtube channel if you're interested.

Awesome work again Maj - great to have some more of your work in the Art Contest again. Always been a fan. I watched the speed paint for this (or the early version of this) and your soothing northern voice did wonders for my headache =P

I'm working on some sketches to bring them up to a reasonable standard. Don't know yet if I will be able to do that.
