Amazing, but you know that!
This is just fantastically beautiful stuff. Wow my mind is simply blown.
Thats a s*&load of beautiful works right there!!!
I am not sure whats that book about, insectoid wars? Looks very interesting, personally as insects fan myself i think you did a seriously killer work on these.
Please, post more!
Really Sick! Bernard Werber would be impressed to see your project i think :) Seems like you spent almost 10-15 years drawing and creating all this insect world. Deep respect for the passion and all the hard work! Sick project :)
Thanks for the great feedback peeps,
Lourense - I got about half way through BW's Ant Empire book, but it didn't grab me as much as I thought it would, - I should revisit it, he's very popular, so I think I missed something
Conte - thanks for the feedback, insect wars happen within the book, but they're more of a background tableaux, something to compare the different "lifestyles" between the organised societies and the antics of the two protagonists
Velocity - Cheers! - I admit it was also a killer to finally finish
Swervdriven - I will be happy to supply - process shots will def be in the pipeline, but I'm thinking I should post them in my sketchbook so I dont clog the FF pages,
Here's more, enjoy :)
Just got my copy in the mail, just so spectacular, frigging amazing. I haven't read through the whole thing yet, but I really like the text so far. Is the "champions breakfasting" line a reference to Kurt Vonnegut by any chance? :)
Woah, insect battle!
Absolutely gorgeous work. Jawdropping. You should be really proud.
Simply amazing work!
holy shit those things are ugly they really give me the creeps good job keep going
Thanks again peeps,
gjpetch - Thank you, I was worried whether the writing worked - and i'm happy you spotted the Vonnegut bit - "Breakfast of Champions" is such a neat title, it has that sense of fun and wordplay that fits the rest of the text so well, - knowing also that this is what Keith Richards called his "first of the day speedballs" (cocaine and heroin), I get to ride that chord too. I'd love to know who coined the phrase first.
Amazing stuff! Going to get the book. Have you ever seen the work of Alexis Rockman? If not I think you would really like it. Very different, but great insects as well.
This is fantastic! really original!
These are crazy! It took me a bit to start to see the flow of storyline, but ever without it I am blown away. Amazing use of color and composition. I also love the creation of the new insects.. I was actually almost fooled a few times, thinking for a bit that these were real insects that i just hadn't seen yet.
Here's some more snippets, -
WyckdNick - I'm intrigued that you can see some flow in the images released already, just to relieve you of the crazyness they're in no particular order :)
Danka - thank you
Brian - Cheers, I haven't seen Rockman's work before, reminds me of Wayne Barlowes work a lot.
