    Wouch man! Your inks reminds me of Frank Frazetta and Berni Wrightson, two of my favourite artists ever so that's obiously a goog thing. The second last face on this one is just pure awesomeness. Keep updating!

    Thanks everybody!

    Here's another drawing from the Deadlander...

    I use 2Bs from the Faber Castell 9000 series. They have a nice rich darkness, can be sharpened to very fine strong points for fantastic sensitivity, the lines can be blended easily into a tone with a finger, and the tone comes up great with a pink pearl eraser.

    This pencil and the Bic round stic ballpoint pen are two of the most consistently good drawing implements I have ever used.

    anatomy

    boy, I am always jaleous of artist who have a good understanding of the anatomy. I did the mistake decades ago of learning the human body by studying body poses through comic books.
    Cool stuff you got here. Seems really influenced by Bernie Wrightson and a bit of Frank Frazetta...

    Thanks pa5cal!

    In terms of anatomy, I look mostly at life and illustrators and painters and people who draw very well and photo reference. And of course, I studied Bridgman's anatomy books pretty intensely.

    Another experimental panel from the Deadlander...

    I did a lot of nutty stuff like this with the lettering balloons' tails in The Deadlander. Just for fun, I guess. And also by curving the balloon tails around objects I thought I enhanced somewhat the feeling of depth by emphasizing that the objects being drawn were actually taking up space that couldn't be penetrated, even abstractly. And this playfulness in the tail "linework" also allowed me to do some nouveau type decorative articulation with it that sorta matches with the Late Victorian era the story is set in.

    I also like how the bartender character in the background is actually "Mona Lisa'd", by the Cobra in the foreground. The Cobra's dark form actually splits the panel into 2 moments/ panels, and I've put two different vignettes of the bartender in slightly different poses in the left and right "panels" formed by the cobra's outline.As you read across the panel from left to right, there is a little more feeling of action because in a way you are fooled into thinking you are looking at one panel, when actually two moments are taking place while the bartender talks. This is like what Rodin said about how he achieved a feeling of action in his sculptures... that he often synthesized several different moments of a sequential movement in a single figure's gesture.

    Maybe you can see it better in the black and white version...

    My editor complained about this panel.

    Very nice Kev
    Your work has the right amount of detail that brings interest to each panel. Very attractive to a lot of people like myself. And ACTION. I really enjoy the action in your art and the angles of view you give. You’ve got a film directors eye and the combination of all this helps move the story forward. BADLANDER looks to be an interesting read, I’ll be sure to pick it up. BTW I do like the painting you’ve posted above too. Is there a story behind it? I think every piece of work an artist does has a story to it. Also a really seasoned artist understands that there needs to be some mystery left to the artwork. Especially if it’s a single stand alone piece.
    You’ve posted something to me about hands. I see a lot of work in your art in this area of the body. Next to the face and body english , hands are a major part of telling a story about what’s going on in someone’s art. A lot of detail in that part of your art. Really cool, I think it’s great.

    Anyhoo, enough of my jabbering for now, see ya Bruce

    My first and only watercolor.

    This took me 2 hours to do because I didn't know what I was doing with the medium. I kept having to go back over the same areas to get them to look right.

    I need to get a book on watercoloring...
