Hopefully this is good enough for the finished section - I'm having a problem viewing threads on this board. It'll load up a few posts than stop and give me "this page can not be displayed." Eh? It was displaying it, why did it stop? Because it can't load up all the images? I don't know - I got through the "rules" threads o.k. so maybe that's the problem. Any ideas?
If my painting is not good enough, I won't be upset if it gets moved, but please mods PM me and let me know where you put it. I didn't see a beginner's section and I'm going to be stumped if it disappears.
About the painting - you'll have to be a fan of American comics to get it. It's a play on the Watchmen line "Pirates are the new super heros," except my pirate is a manga character, since that's what kids read these days (not to upset American comic fans). The composition of the piece is taken from one Todd McFarlane used for a Spider-Man cover and the Spawn #1 cover (notice the accredidation where I signed it ).
I did this after not getting hired by Massive Black - Mr. Manley said I did not have enough detail. I think I have solved that problem, now if I can only learn to paint good in a reasonable amount of time I should be ready to go. So, here I am, ready to learn! Perhaps some pros will check me out at www.extinctionlevelevent.com and take interest in my cause - I really think all I need is a better understanding of the color theory stuff. I'd appreciate an evaluation of where I'm at and what it'll take to get there. I'm ready to move to SF or LA but I'd like to be at a level where I'm not going to get killed first.
