    I love the pen and ink stuff. Reminds me of Frazetta and Bernie Wrightson.

    I posted this on another forum page. Just in case you didn't see it,here was some thoughts on art:

    If you do not believe what you are doing, nobody will.

    Art is a signature of a soul, it will radiate what you radiate.

    Art will tell the truth about you. Art never lies.

    Commit to it. Let your art change you.

    Good strong images cannot be constructed. They must be pre-visualized starting at the emotional core of the dramatic moment you plan to depict. Train your brain to hold onto the images your mind produces, then trace off your imagination onto paper.

    All the technical parts of creating art must become easy to you, because the spiritual parts will kick your ass every time out of the gate!

    Think of your eraser as being made of white lead. Draw with it, just as you draw with the black lead. There is no wrong end of the pencil to draw with.

    Everything is a brush.

    Dare to be professional about your work. Dare to research. Dare to do a preliminary. Dare to do a color comp. Dare right now to be as good as Vermeer. Dare.

    ----------

    More: Measure yourself against the very best, then get pissed!

    Figure out what ten different great artists are doing and more importantly *why* they are doing it.

    It takes one full year to naturally integrate what you learn into your work. So hurry up and learn now to be good next year!

    Fundamental Belief: Art records you. Then broadcasts you.

    I've gotten really interested in fugitive light, especially on skin, marble, white cloth, etc.

    Here's a quick and quiet oil study of a little alabaster statuette that has some interesting and subtle marble-like color variation in the shoulder area. And I put the statue in a box so the head would be partly, but slowly, coming out of shadow.

    This is a variation on the old "paint an egg in a white bowl on a white cloth" lesson. I've done a few of these kinds of things which I'll post as I go along.

    best,

    Here's another pencil-only panel from the Dead Rider. On this one I've zoomed in four separate times.

    I was really trying for something fiery with the pencils on this one to match the dramatic moment of the character. And I tried to hold that emotion as I drew. You can really see how abstract and "violent" the pencil strokes get as we move in closer.

    Say, this is fun!

    Teehee, the Galahad one made me giggle. That's one strong jaw. Looks like a shark.

    Your art style is awesome. Very cool stuff. Actually, I think the only word to describe it is "bitchin'".

    Here's another panel that is probably going be excised from the Dead Rider. Although I may re-work it if I really need the background at some point.

    Another pair of unfinished Dead Rider panels that won't make the final cut because of story changes. (I'd shoot the writer, but its me. )

    In terms of the technical side of things... The first one was an attempt to see how little visual information is required to generate space, in this case, the convex curved space of the hillside upon which the figure lays. I tried to map the space using the points of contact between the figure and the ground, and the perspective the blood splatter maps upon the hill surface. Then I surrounded and defined the perimeter of the space with the curve of bushes in the background that leads to the house.

    At this point, if I wanted to finish this, some indication of the grass texture on the hill is required and the finish of the house is needed. And I'd probably do a lot with white ink (I use pro white with an old W&N series 7 sable brush usually number 1 or 2)

    The second one is lacking in detail in the mountains and has some meaningless ink strokes in the shirt that bother me. And the house looks like a toy. But I love the looseness of the stride and the flying bandana ends and horse hair. This drawing was done quite a while ago and was a breakthrough for me in terms of the amount of looseness I could get in a figure.
