its great to see the last cover come out so well!
i think this is the most successful portrait of the bunch lately hooray just in terms of lush strokes and color. the one posted above i think lacks some tone, especially in the deep shadowed eye sockets!
i agree with dave on most points, but would love to see you play more with glazes (or overlay in PS) to get even more color undulations and hue shifts, subtlety etc...i feel your color is certainly there but another kick would send it over the edge!
see you later budsky

Hey, Rich !
Nothing to add to wait I told you the other daay, except of course for that Spooky Puppet. I remember only an earlier stage. Nice job with the tones and lighting, make the mood of your pic' succesful. I just wonder of the left part [skulls] couldn't have more love in definition. My two cents here.

The sheep wins for me Rich - the paint and the image are almost the same thing. It seems to be where you should be headed. It would be interesting to know how you came up with this image....are those goggles/binoculars?
The fire in the firey dragon one is marvelous too - in a way all your forms are built out of flames. mmmmmmmmmm.....From Gegarin's point of view

sorry for the delay! :O
Thanks for stopping by everyone.
Shmaba: good point. I was pushing the ambiguity in that piece but I think I went too far. I'll have to find a better way to balance readability and abstraction.
Nofingers: Thanks for the crit! A sense of Movement is critical to my work. I haven't been able to recapture it digitally since Corel Painter changed their Palette Knife. I've been experimenting with Photoshop to try and compensate. I admit I struggled with the eyes and gave up too fast. I was working really fast since my opening was creeping up. I did something like twelve oil paintings in two weeks while working a part time job and freelancing. Insane. Let's just say I took a week off when I finished.
Scott! Whenever you are down for some meatballs and gravy I am ready! Errrm Painting party anyone? I've got the scotch!
emily g: Thanks!
Jason Snair: That is one hell of a nice comment. Wyeth was always one of my favorites. I just picked up a book on N.C, Andrew and Jamie Wyeth. Three for the price of one. It's a good read and a steal for 10 bucks.
bhanu: thanks mate.
DanielC: thanks Dan.
Samantha: thank you.
rawr: thank ya.
WOW! I am humbled that you. THE MINFAYE have commented on my work. I bow to you.
Dave: Good good point. I need to run my stuff by you guys more often before sending it out. I did use ref for that image your talking about too. I loved that new painting of the man reading through the stacks of books.
Vic: I know right! Minfaye! hahaha. thanks Vic.
Tim-dawg: True dat. Glazing FTW! We need to plan something out broski. I am coming to your studio! NOW!
meeps: great take on it. must be some residue from my highschool days.
DARYL Thanks man. can't wait to see new stuff from you.
Julien: mon ami! good to hear from you. the skulls and masks could use more love. you sir have a good eye.
Chris Bennett: Good to hear from you Chris. The sheep image is a sort of take on a egg tempera painting I made tree years ago. I was in this class where we made oil, egg tempra and encaustic paint from scratch. We were looking at a lot of renaissance art and I was influenced to put my spin on some of the themes these artists were working with. I figured why not make a biblical scene but throw gas masks on all the animals. They won't see that coming. The teacher liked it but now looking back it wasn't all that original. haha.
Wasker: thanks man. I can't believe that gods TD was only a year ago. time flies.
Tiff! lol! well what the hell! let's set a date! meatballs for everyone!
RaistlinTheDark: practice dood. oh and no social life. thanks.
dtr.aty: thanks. i plan on it.

Here's a new cover.
I learned that trying to make negatives look readable is hard... never mind making them look cool.

Dude! That came out great and I think you did a really good job handling the negatives. I am really glad you chose to paint it like that (as opposed to the other sketch you showed me) - I think this is going to jump right at the viewer with the bold large graphic shapes and limited hues. One of my new favorites from you.
If I had to crit, and it's really really nitpicky, is that the torn off negative edged probably wouldn't tear that way. I've torn negatives up (usually nude pictures of you) and the edges are very hard, where there they feel more like cloth. Oh gawd- that is the most nitpicky crit I have ever done. I am not going to delete it because it's funny to me now Great job brotherman!

SCOTT! you told me you threw them away! haha!
good crit though dooder. your dead on about that too. i got a little carried away (as usual) and had too much fun. unfortunately with that you can forget what your doing. oh noes!
Thanks for the wisdom broski!

My favorite piece is the one with the dinosaur bones. That's pretty much how I imagined finding fossils when I was an 8 year old paleontology nut: just walking along, and BAM! DINOSAURS!
I think your work is great. Keep on keepin' on!Intrepid explorer Spaceman Spiff lands on an uncharted planet. What strange wonders will he discover here?
