    I love the seventies comics vibe.

    An oil Painting...

    Here's an oil painting...

    Struggling with getting this to look right on screen. Lots of dust particles on the painting and some digital weirdness happening in the conversion process...

    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.

    Some oil studies from life

    Just did these in the last two weeks from the model. About an hour and a half on each. A totally exhausting sprint and not enough time to finish! Digital photos don't quite look right either, but you get the idea. (whine, whine, whine...)

    Thanks to everybody who's commented so far!

    Your ink work has that great 'classic' look to it. Love it.
    The rushed paintings look great too.
