    Very impressive, I really like your pencil sketches, especially that last one of the woman looking down. You make me wanna dig out my pencils and get to work!

    The paintings look like photographs. While the they're all pretty impressive and well rendered, you should really try to reduce the distortion that your photo refs have.

    No, no, no. The problem isn't the quality of the photograph. It's that with any photo, no matter how good the camera or relative skill of the photographer, always has some distortion. This is why drawing and painting from life is always so stressed.

    Working from photographs is fine, but you have to compensate for this distortion. Your images are actually very well rendered, but they were obviously copied from photographs.

    From one Andy to another, let me say that your work is great! Your paintings have a brooding ambiance that is awesome. I especially like the "Superman is real and he's an American" one!

    Good ups Andy!

    Great work!

    I believe he is refering to the nature of photography to distort the reference.
    It is the nature of using photo reference. There is nothing wrong with it if you choose to stay close to the ref, if you want the image to maintain that photographed look. Some illustrators try to compensate for the lens distortion by de-barrelizing their reference in photoshop. You can see the distortion more easily in photographs of architecture...the edges of the buildings curve a bit. It happens to figures and faces as well. I don't really see it in your work but others are more sensitive to it than I am.
    Here's a link illustrating the lens affect in architecture:

    i love the classic/strongmen dudes.

    your Ben looks like a revisioning of the hulk i did as an early industrialist named Bruce O'Banner.

    ... make him green!

    i actually like that they look like poor photographs...they're kind of eerie-er that way.

    my crit would be that some of the surroundings aren't rendered quite as well as the people.

    if you have any more paintings from that collection with the children, show em
