    Just saw Gurney's post about that model session and came running to see if you'd posted yours. That looks fantastic, Kev! Love the bold brushwork.

    What I like about your Illustrations is the fact that the movement of the figures and environment is graphicly depicted using a method of ink that initself is movement.Also view point (the eye line) is also actively used so forcefully yet again to add punch visually,this creates a compelling visual whirlwind but instead of it becoming an uncontrolable jumble you underpin the whole thing with strong geometric shape composition.Your characterisations are a riot to,some of the expressions are fantastic.
    Sometimes great illustrators make bad fine artists in the painting life class but your painting shows a great sympathy for the sitter you get their psychological mood which comes over in the colour and mark making.
    For paintings done in a single sitting your doing very well, also I think the textural use of the paint is beginning to work for you, its great for someone who is newly introducing impasto that you instinctively know how it works not only by using the raised paint to indicate lighter surface but by using the directional drag of the paint to follow the form.Amazing stuff weldone.

    Beautiful work. Like the very best of classic comics greats like Frazetta and Wrightson. Fantastic!

    Testing out new forum tools...

    Can't upload images. Some kind of error in upload manager for me. May be a software problem on my end. Will try again in a few weeks.

    When are you going for your magnum opus ala a certain artist that did Mary Shelly's Frankenstein, hm? I think you could pull it off.

    So awesome! I really love your drawing style! I bought "The Deadlander" and "The Dead Rider" and I wish there would come more!

    Thanks Omen... Well, Dead Rider was supposed to be my "magnum opus", but its advent is delayed for reasons beyond my control. Issues 3 and 4 are done and waiting on DH's servers. I tweak little bits and pieces of them now and again. Hopefully it will come out in the not too distant future in its proper graphic novel format.

    Jason, Kolbenito, and royfocke... thanks so much! I really appreciate your appreciation.

    Stay tuned...

    Here's one of those tweaks mentioned in the above post. The first time around on this panel, which shows the Dead Rider and his horse crashing through a window, I "found a way" to avoid really drawing what is happening by adding a bunch of explosive photoshop bull to the image. I have hated that panel from the moment it was completed, and it has been a thorn in my side ever since. One of the great lessons I have learnt about myself over the last few years is that I should always do it the hard way the first time around. Because if I don't, I will end up doing it the hard way the second or third time around in order to satisfy myself. And then that will mean more work, and more self-irritation that I bothered to try to fool myself with cheap shortcuts.

    You can see the original version of this panel on page 15 of issue 1 of Deadlander (the name of the first issue of Dead Rider before legal stepped in it.)

    Thanks Bill!

    Here's another little quick repair. Pencil and ink IRL, coloring in photoshop.

    It certainly is Bill.
    Beautifully articulating the white rectangle too. An orchid against a tile. The scream of a square ghost.

    Saved a lot of pictures to my "inspiration" folder I lovelovelove your inking, it makes me feel all nostalgic, like I'm sitting in a basement looking through old long boxes. I will definitely take the advice you gave me to heart haha.

    Great work Kev.

    It has been more than a year since your last entry, can you show us a bit of how you spent all this time? I like your oil work a lot and I wonder what are you doing these days.
