    Very nice stuff Kev
    The “Pirate Gal” pencil looks way cool. Just plain beautiful. There is a lot of movement going on in your pieces. Something to keep the eyes bouncing around yet always drawing them back to the main subject. I like that. Not sure if you’ve posted the date for Deadlander’s release. Just wondering when I’ll be able to pick it up. Anyway great work, keep it up.

    I like the face in the old version better, it looks more female. The eye looks better without the highlight. What bugs me a bit is the perspective of the spyglass cap and see some brush strokes where you painter over her back, one of em cuts into her back. Her hair seems to melt with her shirt.

    Here's a small step by step...

    This panel was causing me a headache. Narratively, the panel was exactly what I needed for the story, but I totally botched the execution, as you can see in the second image version. The Shaman's face is flat and goofy and feminine looking, the forearm is way too long, the back was awkward, etc. etc. etc.

    So I did a quick paintover on it... and then another based on Randis' helpful critique... and now here it is!

    I hope you can tell the first image is the paintover!

    I just saw Blazing Saddles again lately, so this pic of Cavanaugh reminds me of Gene Wilder in that film...with a sort of French take.

    Will have to look for Deadlander on the stands!

    Amazingly cool stuff. I love anything to do with comics.

    The black and white work reminds me a lot of Berni Wrightson, but your color work is a little more dramatic and modern, than his was.

    Hey Kev, I appreciate all the help you gave me, your SB is amazingly neat - the inks are very very good. I especially like your witch sculpture - the crack gives it character - I hope it baked ok and survived

    Thread is bookmarked, looking forward to your future updates. Again thanks for the helpful crit on my latest project.

    Here's a page I just pencilled.

    I'm going to post some pen and ink doodles and stuff in my notebook if anybody wants to go see that kind of thing.

    Thanks for taking the time to help me out! I'm glad to say that I've learned something new. I also enjoy reading your older posts, especially the things you say about illustration and what makes it work.

    Looking forward to learn more!

    Maybe Elwell is actually talking about something else, but the linework of much of your work reminds me of "The Savage Sword of Conan" (that I would purchase monthly during the late 70's and early 80's). It was a B&W mag with art that was often similar to some things hear. There were several artists that did the art for that. Your style reminds me of one of those artists (I'm too lazy to dig those books out of my basement and find the name of the artist).

    I like the use of line work in that piece where the wall is falling on the cowboy. I think my favorite is the Samurai. And in your second piece, it is cool how the light is passing through the zombie guy's bullet holes. Would have been cooler if you somehow highlighted that aspect of the piece; as is, the light rays through the holes sort of blend with the other light rays, making it a feature of the piece that is easy to overlook.
