    so awsome, had to think of a landscape here hehe

    as is mentioned, your inks are great, precise and loose at the same time.
    frazetta is one of your influences?

    MOOOORE

    Here's another Blitz Oil Girl. I got into the turps on this one and began splashing like mad. That's why it looks like Bobo the Monkey Boy did assists.

    I think this session was two hours, so it wasn't as crazy as the hour and a halfs I've been doing recently.

    That's a little joke. Doing an oil painting in two hours is still like writing a song as you perform it in front of a live audience. Mistakes are bound to happen, but the expression will be dead honest and something just might occur that never can be captured again.

    There's so much spirit in a loose oil painting. It's like nothing else. And I love how, when you move in for a closer look, the whole image flies apart before your eyes.

    I really love composing illustrations. Here's two more from my notebooks...

    The first one is a pair of Lilliputians talking over their catch of the day.

    And the second one looks like The Deadlander peeking around a corner at some kind of mining operation, but I have no idea what scene it's from.

    Here's a portrait of my Italian Grandfather.

    He played mandolin in a marching band in Sicily in 1912.

    He was a big David Hasselhoff fan.

    He was very loud and wore his pants up to his chest. I hope one day to be just like him!

    Another panel that will not make the final cut.

    This is from a very early page that was so complex and design-y (not in a good way) that when I showed the original pencils to Stephen Hickman at one of Berni Wrightson's parties he said it looked like the Sistine Chapel.

    I originally took this to be a compliment, but now it gives me a good laugh because Steve says all sorts of mischievous things to young artists that sound good at first, but on reflection are actually rather clever "crits".

    I think now what he really meant was that the page looked like it took me a thousand hours to draw, was super complex. and the story didn't make any sense.

    Ah well. Live and learn... Thanks Steve!

    Another unused Deadlander panel from the same page as above... (I'm isolating these drawings from each other so I can post them, but in the original page they're all in one big jumble of illustrative chaos!)

    Very nice work Kev. Cowboys and zombies. Youíve done a great job of illustrating the western undead. The oil painting of the skull in the box is cool too. You do put a lot of detail into your work. I like that. The ink barbarians are impressive too. Sure would like to see more. Nudes are good too. Iíve been a fan of barbarian artwork ever since Frazettaís Conan paperbacks. Iíve studies the man for a while now. Anyway youíve got some great looking artwork. Iíve enjoyed your sharing it here.

    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!
