    Thumbs up

    heya kev - your work is amazing! on all fronts!

    my favorites so far are your oil blitz cuties (def. seeing some shmid influence), and your gramps (sweet post), and #59 of the cowboy walking with hipsway, that one really made my jaw drop.

    So when does the badlander hit the streets? inquiring friends want to know.

    -Celeste

    p.s. glad to see you are getting mad props in these forums.

    Hey Celeste!

    Thanks for compliments!

    On the pub date, it's later in the year, like October or something. I believe they're going to mention it at San Diego. So I guess it'll be a sure thing then.

    But I'll let you know!

    And if only I could paint like Schmid!!

    Ok, I've been posting a lot of stuff I'm not going to use in the Deadlander, so I thought I'd post something I am.

    This picture was done to create a prop for the Witch's cabin that I could move around and use in various panels. I only ended up using it in three panels so far, but I think it might make another appearance in the fourth book.

    Enjoy...

    Very cool images, m8, b&w drawings from badlander remind me of F.F. works...great!
    As my artist's statement explains, my work is utterly incomprehensible and is therefore full of deep significance.

    Here's a discarded version of the smoke signals pen and ink drawing I posted earlier.

    On this one the expressionistic aspects took hold of the drawing and the whole thing started to look warped in a psychedelic kind of way. There was no reason at that moment for there to be that kind of a twist on things, so I re-did it.

    Here's a Fantasy oil painting I did a while back already. Never seen by human eyes.

    I jokingly call it Pans on Fire.

    Anyhow I did this just before I really started to understand Harvey Dunn's picture making philosophy. So it certainly has its compositional "issues". It was still a lot of fun to make and I learned a lot.

    I also did one of the classic rookie oil painter mistakes on it, which is to make thick impasto brushstrokes in the dark areas. Thick brushstrokes glint in the light no matter what color they are. So when you are trying to make an area a flat dark color, light glinting randomly in the area doesn't much help! I pulled out a lot of those artifacts digitally before posting.

    You are welcome to tear me apart on this. Have fun!

    hey kev, nice sketchbook!

    You got me on this last one, my exact words were (more light). But you seemed to counter attack the phrase in your post so im speechless now. I'd have something to say, but im in an extremely lazy and tired position right now.

    Apologies, i'll come back later with something more worth while

    Keep kicking ass!
