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!

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!

rich i think wit the last one the negatives look very opaque and gouachey? in a darkroom the redlight is so overpowering i feel that either the negative would be saturated with the red (and seem a bit more transparent) or for illustrative sake be more of the complementary green? and to be so bright they would need another lightsource on them, presumably a red light being in the darkroom atmosphere. it is a tough pickle! by themselves they are beautifully done though!
btw i forgot to introduce meself, my name is mr hardass nitpick, how do you do?
i did some sloppy rough mollyhogging of your piece to show a quickens of what i mean...

Wonderful stuff! I love your expressive use of color and the richness of the oils. I want to see more! This newest one has a great suspensful feeling. Great job!

damn Rich, I love it. The red lit darkroom is so good I can almost smell the fixer
I also agree with Scott that the negatives in negative are super sweet. I see the point about the film not probably tearing the way you have it, though I kind of don't care. If it looked realistic, it would look cut off, which isn't very dramatic. You could maybe have made it burned off, though that probably has no relation to the story doesn't much matter in the end, it's going to make a great cover.

hey man, i particularly liked your portraits, and i was just wonderin, how do you apply your oil paint?
im really new with working with oils, ive only done 2 pieces so far with them, and every time i try to achieve an effect such as the one you created in this painting:
mine always turn out looking like they were painted with Acrylic
do you apply with those painting knifes? or is it a special brush you use to achieve the overall effect?
