    Thank you for the comments...and the ratings......means allot...made my day
    My more recent pieces are done mainly in Painter, starting off with random brush strokes with nothing in mind from the start...I find pallet-knives are fun, and oils. Mess around with the values in the brush creator...then move back and forth from painter and Photoshop...photoshop mainly for color adjustments and composition tweaks...I find the color option sliders help me pick hues and values...I use painter 9 and an intuos tablet from wacom...
    for my line work and ideas I find myself putting random lite lite lines and just experimenting with shapes in parrallel and contrast...and making beeline dances...I admire all spiders...I would like to get into more reference work in the future...but for the most part its all from outer and inner space these days...Ive used other things in the past for example grass stains, coffee stains... on paper and finding shapes and such in the randominityity of it all...
    hope this helps
    toinfinityandbeyond

    Dude... awesome work. I don't know much about getting gigs, but I do know that near the bottom of the forums there is a sub forum for freelance gigs... you should check that out, you're sure to get some jobs!

    Love the work. Definitely bookmarking your book.

    I really love the soft feel to your work, and the dramatic use of light.

    Post more please !

    As far as work goes. Don't be afraid to take some low pay gigs at first, just for exposure or to get some work printed. A few top artists started out just doing low paying work for Role Playing games and stuff. Always helps to have a few published pieces in a protfolio. Shows you have some experience working with art directors and under deadlines.

    Hey there Jerome, it's been awhile. It's good to see new stuff from you! You're doing some wicked stuff with brushes and seem to be moving along pretty quickly.

    What are you doing as a career? What are you hoping to do? This stuff is seriously awesome, and it's curious to wonder.
