Been giving DromEd the silent treatment lately, and with little chance of patching things up any time soon as I'm having too much fun with Painter 8. I joined a daily sketch group some time ago over at ConceptArt.org (http://www.conceptart.org/) but have only recently been participating regularly. I'm still trying to regain the skills (I think) I had when I was younger, but I'm getting there slowly.

The daily topics haven't been very Thief friendly so far, but I thaught I'd post some recent sketches to show you I haven't been slacking off completely... even if I'm not working on my FM's.

Could pass as a Pagan/Woodsie water spirit?

WOW Gummie...those are great. I can draw stick figs....no artistic talent in me. In fact my piano teacher told my mother "You are wasting your money and my time." This was after my praying mantis egg case hatched and the youngsters landed all over him. I just happened to put the egg case over the piano. He was upset. I giggled. So draw me a mantis!!!

Sorry Blackie... no can do. Maybe if you released a mission, it would inspire me into action. ;)

Littlek - What a great story. I can see it all so clearly. I love insects, and mantis' are particularly sweet, so I'll knock something up for you.

Here's todays topic: Journeying/Wondering Gargoyle. I was inspired by a concept pic for Thief 3 I saw with shadowy figures moving through think vegetation.

Hey Gummsie...neat pic's but I also like the way your Elephantie turned out the best in this group, although your idea of the Lava Bug could be possible in a Thief FM...just modify the spiders a bit and there you are! LOL Speaking of FM's....I agree about tBm's that's been on hold for a pretty long time seems to me too???? How bout it theBlackman? ;) Ta and Good Hunting!

Thanks for the comments. :)

I will be releasing some of my unfinished stuff as novelty walk around missions, maybe with some simple objective such as collect all the coins or something. Two missions will be carried over to T3. I have already started work on some custom high quality textures, and am keeping a note book to develope plots, characters, maps etc... but as for another complete T2 FM? Not looking good squire. ;)
