This is seriously amazing I love the limited colors you used, but how much everything stands out one from another. I think the person in the foreground looks absolutely perfect, size, stance everything. The red stands out just enough but doesn't distract. Amazing work!
It gives one a sense of adventure, like you just want to jump into the picture and explore an island for buried treasure! Of course, your works always give off a mystic feel with an aura of realism. Like the painting's alive.^O^
Damn I love the thick brush strokes in this. They're so bold and dramatic. They really feed the details of shadows and highlights. The strokes also make it genuinely spooky eerie. The pirate adds a lot too, because he gives us a sense of scale and makes the abandoned ship even more intimidating.
wow, really love this one! love how you havn't lended the strokes, it almost looks like a real painting and it really gives a great impression about the structure of that cave wall. also love the light and motive!
I always love how the pirate era was riddled with myths and the grand idea that anything could lie out at sea, and I think you definately captured that kind of 'mysterious adventure'/'anything awaits' feel. And the details are splendid~
