Don't worry, friends, it's still me behind the scenes!


I've added a new section called

Gods, Heroes, and a Couple of Regular Guys:
Corbin's Tall Tales

When I create a new piece
of design work, it often happens that they come, much like a baby with a silver spoon in it's mouth, bearing a story. Unfortunately, when I sell a piece, the story is sometimes lost with it. I've decided to collect these stories into a section all
their own, for your enjoyment.

Enjoy them!


Don't forget to click on the BLUE WORDS anywhere on this site to enter
new worlds of mythic imagination.

Here I've got the earthly movement in, and the shapes of the crows have been roughed in. I'll add detail to them later. For you non-artist-though-interested individuals, notice that, as a general rule, you start with the background and move to the foreground as you paint. The reason for this is that, if you start with the foreground objects, when you paint the background you have to carefully paint around the edges. If you start in back, you just paint the edges of foreground objects on top of the background.

Notice how the rose leaves in the lower left corner are partially painted over.
