Digital illustration

It has been an eternity since my appearance in BF.
I've run down some threads and saw so many good work... Congratulations to all of you.

In the past days I've done some digital illustrations, really different from what I'm used to... Well I decided to give it a go and came up with these.

Hope to get some feed back...

Wonderful work Paulo - very accomplished, indeed. Especially like the touch of purple on the eagle owl's shoulder.

I use Corel Painter 12.

Within the program I just use the pencil "Real 2H Drafting Pencil", I change the size of pencil if I want to paint a detail or a great area.
I feel like I'me painting with colour pencils.

I prefer this pencil because it allows me to achieve great detail, if necessary. And I don't like to be constantly changing pencil.

I use very few layers. I do much of the work in a single layer, then I add one or two for shadows and small details.

Normally it takes me a day to make a drawing like the flammeus with some breaks in between [:)].

Seems like Corel Painter 12 is the way to go (not meaning in any way to take away from your superb artistry!).
