Doc Savage, Buckaroo Banzai, and small works
Well, clearing the decks to make some miles on my LMS piece and I realized that I've got some stuff accumulating here. All oils on board as per usual. This first was a private commission for a collector, 16x24:
These are for the Small Works group show at my gallery. I'm curious to see how they go over, I was pretty bored by the stuff I'd been painting there and figured I may as well just have some fun with these. 6x15, 9.5x13, 6x15:
and this one was from some months back for a Buckaroo Banzai comic book, 12x18:

Awesome work, the blue highlights might be a little harsh on the face of the first character. Or maybe it's the fire that gives too cool a light. But I guess it's just my taste. Some characters do look a bit familiar, aren't some references actually people we know, like the bald guy on the second painting?

You got to do a Buckaroo Bonzai peice ?!
How cool is that ?!!
Seriously, these are all great.
Some of your best, imo.
I really dig the snake painting.
(I wish you gave me a bitchin' scar across my eye or something.)

Excellent work. I'd enjoy seeing more sharp edges (ala Drew Struzan), but hey, far easier said than done. Awsome.

A couple of crits on the Doc Savage one.
The pose is not nearly extreme enough and his face is too calm. He looks like he's about to try to reason with the zombie cultists instead of bash his way out of the temple after stealing their sacred idol.
Second, he's holding the torch too close to the middle. I can see that this was a composition decision, you didn't want it too high and obscuring the eye, or disappearing off the left edge, but having him hold it down at the end does two things - 1) he won't burn his fingers, and 2) It would make it look like a weapon, like he was about to fight his way out.
No crits on the other ones, but, uh, why is there a watermelon there?

Amazing - Buckaroo Banzai. I thouhgt I was the only person in the world who saw that one. The most amazing cast for the most crappy movie ever
Love the paintings.
Top notch. They got that old movie poster feel to them that I like.
