big phil hale fan? awesome gorilla. is that your own take on M. d'Cease in the second painting? welcome to CA.org, your style is certainly a breath of fresh air. i can see you becoming quite popular very quickly. dont let the stardom get to your head
Im not accusing you of anything, as its obvious you painted those yourself (very skillfully I might add), but I do find it wierd how liberally you are lifting from Foster. I love him too... uh.. I mean his work. Yes...
Foster actually went through much of the same thing I think, trying to make himself more visually distinct from his roots with Phile Hale and Rick Berry. If you look so much like someone elses work... why hire you? Why not hire them?
Lovely work by the way.
The attached images are by Jon Foster ( www.jonfoster.com ). The girl in the second actually has a companion with goggles as well, but I couldn't seem to find that image.
great work man
I have seen most of them on deviantart some time ago but didnt watch you
but your new stuff leaves the impressiont that it was a mistake to not watch you back than
anyways I really like your work and the painterly feel it has
and the way you mix your colors
please feel free to visit my website and Deviantart portfoilo
Yup, ya steped on some toes there. What in the chances of someone drawing the same huge gorilla (kong), and a woman with leather pants, I looked on Jons website and Raytoh and your most likely looking at the chick from Chronicles of Riddick.
This type of style is going around in art circles right now. It's not something directly lifted from Foster, it's more of an inspired look borrowed or elabored upon from many contemporary artists. There is nothing wrong adhering to a style that you like, especially when you are starting up and have yet to establish a strong identity.
I've been a fan of your work for quite some time now. Loved that piece you did a while back for Greg Titus's the Imaginaries (I think that's what it was called, the one with the Nazi bears, haha).
Saw your work in the Imaginary Friends book as well, tight stuff dude. Keep inspiring!
