Here's an unfinished panel that isn't going to make the cut because of a story change. I like the way the Indian sprawls over the cross (The metaphoric meaning of which may be a bit too obvious.) I may turn it into a painting someday.
Anyhow, I'd love to hear your comments...

Lovely style and material. More in-depth tutorials if you're willing to create any
great stuff Kev.
love that step by step you just posted
Great work. I really like the pen and ink stuff. Strong Frazetta influence, especially noticable with the two drawings (the hobbit/elf and Warrior) in the second post. Keep it up - very inspirational.
WOW to post #30 with that in depth writing, I'll say you have a great way of expressing the feeling of the thing with words, I can really feel almost everything you described in that post, Great explanation of your technique in art. And your pencil and ink work is great!
great work, i gotta say its refreshing to see that seventies style back in the mix. great life drawings and paintings too. there are however a couple pieces that get quite confusing with so much going on, but that might be what your are going for. either way beautiful work man.
Ballpoint drawings from my notebooks... straight from the ol' noggen, no thought, no outline in pencil, none of that lame erasing stuff... Bic round stick, I think...
Another panel set of before and after from the Dead Rider 2 from Dark Horse.
Its a moody page so the colors are kinda muted on the finish.
In terms of the drawing I was really trying to get maximum texture with the minimum of ink shading. I tried to make every line describe something structural, even if its micro-structure and I left the tonal gradations to the photoshop color stage. This is a very small panel so what's most important is that the gesture of the figure "reads" properly.

great b&w works(i like more without colors) and very good drawings.
I really like your work. It's a pleasure to see 'felt" drawing. My only suggestion is for the drawing that was cut. When I first looked at it I couldn't see the head. I think if the plane change from the side of the face to the plane under the jaw had a tonal change it would have been clearer.
Hi, Maxine. Thank you for the compliments. On the excised pic, I absolutely agree with you about the needed tonal and color change between the outward plane of the face and the underside of the jaw. I was going to paint the face, but since the picture isn't needed I thought I would just post it as is. I may go back to it, as I said, and make it into a painting.
