good stuff - really tight rendering on the shiny lady!

ha, always a good idea to wait a bit, I should do that more often! Really nice pic, I like the diffusing red light off the back of the car. Maybe add some more blurry lights in the background to suggest a city/ road in the distance?

Great composition and lighting. It's great seeing your progress from your early work to your later stuff.

Hi chaps.
Scott:
Thanks for stopping by mate! It is one of the few images I am putting in our GA book!

Aidan: Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm shiny.

Ben: I might just do that, some of the background looks a bit too sloppy to me now. I still am not much cop at the suggestive rendering thing that so many digital painters seem to have down pat.

Mark: A new face! Thanks for stopping by. You are kind. I feel like i spread myself to thin but I am pleased with my progress over the last year or so. Mostly I am trying to implement a lot of the golden age stuff that Loomis talks so much about. Tonal arangement is a phrase i find myself saying way too often now!!
