    Fantastic is not the word here. Sensational, breathtaking, brilliant. I like these most: 2nd, 6th, and 8th. But really like them all!

    Sweet stuff, man. I'm a great fan of your work. You know - I searched and didn't find it - and I would swear that I've seen it somewhere - I'd love to see your work method. Step by step from start to finish... If you'd post that, I'd be really grateful.

    Gorgeous! I love the first ones. Something about the dreamy smoothness and the rough stone really appeals.


    Thanks

    How often do you use referance?....I ask due to the fact I feel guilty as an artist everytime I render an image with ref..I somehow feel I'm cheating my audiance if I have to 'copy' from a photo, even if it's the smallest element of a composition. I feel some how that to justfy my title as an 'artist' I have to do everything from memory...

    Excuse me, but how do you make those smooth, shiny and those wonderfull streetviews and characters? Is this all handdrawn by a tablet or also photographic manipulation and brushes? - If i may ask of course!

    Furtermore i love your work. Im interested in book covers, pitty that you left out the "heading" and the name of the books. *typography.

    Thanks.

    Thanks for your questions, guys!
    I use references constantly, I do not consider it wrong, my trade - this not only pure creativity, but also means for the maintenance of family, craft, on me hangs the responsibility for what salary I shall pay to the our employees. Terms which now give us on performance of a cover are unreal, to make them only drawing on memories it is impossible, therefore my position- in it there is nothing bad. Unimportantly as you drew product, it is important - whether it is pleasant to people, whether it has achieved the purpose put by the customer and whether you were fair with yourself. 8)
    In the basic no more than 40% works is photoreferences, all rest - it is simple drawing on WACOM. I still never managed to make a photo so that it could be used without processing. I simply draw from above, I transform, I search to plastic and a composition, and color - it is my gift - it turns out itself, I very much love world around, it gives huge inspiration! I’m corrected, I post a breadboard model of the some cover and new bonus picture -

    As you can see here, it isn't about just blindly "copying" the reference. A good illustrator always uses the reference economically, or as needed, rather than just copying, but this is a discussion for another thread.

    Oh and by the way. I think a good illustrator always uses referenses or out of mind. Both are diffrent things ofcourse, but as the reference has more a natural purpose of the body and so on.

    References are not bad to my opinion.. you can really make some awsome work with it. I mean, just photograph a friend or yourself in a kind of shape and just draw!

    /endless discussion and its a bit off topic, sorry.
