/.....if there is someone from AUSTRALIA especially from SYDNEY on this site, then leave a msg for me, and I really want to meet with you & to making a friends-of course if you'd agree it...............please
You're too much man. Outstanding and very inspirational work. I'd love to just sit and watch you draw, no matter how creepy that might be, I think I could learn a lot. The shotgun wielding guy in the trench coat is amazing imho, I was wondering if you have any tips on character consistancy. I have trouble redrawing characters sometimes, even if I use refs. Sometimes I pick an acto/person who's face resembles the characters, so I can try to keep small consistancies, but you nailed it so well. Was wondering if you had any advice, thanks man, keep up the outstanding work.
designboot: th nks. I am proud of it though... it was my first artwork in illustrator. great medium i gotta say...
caprotti: glad you like it.
Jeri:? I take it as a comliment.
Soja - nice to hear from you! Love your Avatar, dude... how was meeting lorenzo? It seems you had fun...
Dallas: Its an honour. Your environments still slip on my desktop every once in a while... I'm really flattered, you like my humble sketchbook too.
mmiller: Glad to hear.
brunopricinini: Great compliment, that it inspires you.
jozulus: thanks man - and here's a little update:
Its part one of a series I'm planning to do. Yes I know - the upper arm and the shoulder is still a sketch - but therefore I didn't put it in the FF section yet. My focus was on speculars and hapticality (I wonder if this word exists...) of skin/ latex/ slimy and wet surfaces/... (slightly inspired by cannibalcandys insane thread in FF)
I hope you like it.

hello... How I like you humble manner, you are a sweet man, you know. When cloning will become legal I will be writing in your thread every hour talking you into go and clone yourself in 1000000 copies.
And you are versatile and you can do thousand things...
about last image... you know I recently ... actually I always had this tearing apart state in my mind or better say in my heart when trying to write comments...for an artist who knows what he is doing and for an artist with experience and soul... it is so silly I think to give him critique or try to pull him in my way of thinking... I do believe in things happening the way they should in art... or at least I believe the things happen the optimum possible in current moment way...
The counterargument against it always that people post to hear feedback... hopefully they will not be sway too strongly from their own vision after absorbing the comments to their art.
So looking at your last image... The image is flickering,,, here and there little lonely weak lights appear...it is a lot of them but they don't allow me to see what I really want to see... his eyes in those shadows under brows and how badly his arm's wounded and how really old this guy is... It is scary and horrifying to look at the cut meat from his left arm and his not adequate to situation body language... that's a mad man. Strangely enough it is a quiet horror... happening in total silence, as a matter of fact... no jumping suddenly from the corner which I fear so much...he lovingly cuts his own meat from the naked bone like trimming Christmas tree for a better look. And I don't know what to think... he seems like he is in a happy place...
I'm personally not sure about how you distribute the brightest spots in your painting... I believe that you did it consciously... you wanted this uncertainty and me being in scattered state of mind where to look first...not satisfied with curiosity... there is hardly priority in parts of the painting and I think you did it specifically to create this emotion... not knowing what to think, unpredictable situation... not being protected.
Colors are rich, cherry, gold, deep green, dark blue... juicy colors. colors of physical pleasure. Goya's color too... mature and rich, like a fat greedy soil, which sucks up everything in it. So everything leads me to the thought... the event is happening according to a plan... if you don't want to participate... don't enter the picture becasue after that you will be like a light weightless wooden stick swirling in waterfall, power free.
there is some mix of styles in your image... arm and hand and scissors are dons in more stylized manner than the his skirt and the face... but you know what... I don't care... I'm tired to be "academical"... Styles are our choice to generalize things... we can live without them.
I do wish to see his hand better though...
in the image before I like the picture with two girls... very lusty... actually all images about that or emotion close to that...but the gray colors... I wish it was something like in the last image actually... royal colors, colors of victory and physical pleasure: red, cherry, gold, earthy and maybe dark blue, green, orange... colors of aggressive happiness.
