    I think that is coming out nice, but if you are not happy with the work in progress I could suggest one different direction: why don't try to color it like a '40 or '50 old comic style? Theme and style match enough with it and it could be an illustration with a different style from your everyday style.
    Anyway... I like the illustration in this way.

    Moftah: Thanks

    PerinGalitte: Cool of you to say. I'm trying.

    anjin:
    That's sort of what I'm going for. Those old pulp comic covers. I think it fits my normal style a lot actually. Vibrant colors, Dynamic poses. I haven't been doing a lot of finished illustrations lately...mostly just the character poses so maybe it doesn't come off.

    Dan Valkar: Yeah, I've got a few brushes that I use most of the time. One in particular is my favorite...but for this piece it just wasn't helping. I dunno. Looking over my recent work, I think I need sharper lines. There's too much "brushy" soft edges. But I don't want to get rid of all of it per say. So I'm looking to explore in that regard.

    I love the looseness in your work, especially the line work.
    You've got a nice style and I'm gonna keep my eye on your sketchbook!

    Cheers.

    Thanks Gilles...I'll be sure to keep posting.

    Here's an update: I swear I'm beginning to hate this one. I painted for about 6 hours yesterday. Did the head, the helmet, some parts of his body...and then around midnight realized it was all crap. Total crap. Crap like I used to paint 4 years ago. I don't know what's going on...maybe I'm having an off week. Maybe I'm thinking too much about this one or something. I just can't get it too work. I'm never this frustrated with painting.

    After scrapping the 6 hours of painting, I quickly slapped down some new colors using the chalk tool. I zoomed way out and just quickly blotted color in the right areas. I really just wanted to get the right feeling, quickly. Kind of like, mapping things out. I guess now I have a new underpainting to paint again.

    I need my mojo back.

    hey.. keep the stress under control! you're a great artist, so just keep it in mind all the time, all right?
    About the painting: I think you're making it too much "painting" and is is fighting with the simple illustration style of the sketch. For this reason, maybe, you are finding it so difficult. Try with less texture, less brushes and just plane tints, or almost.
    anyway... just my two cents

    Thanks Anjin.

    Update: Okay. I started over. Completely. Redid the pose because I realized how crappy the anatomy was. Repainted the background to it's own layer...which it wasn't before because I didn't plan things out better originally. I even changed all my brushes back to their factory default settings. Something must have gotten screwed up somewhere because every brush stroke I put down just looked like pixeled crap. I may have lost a few personal settings, but I don't mind building them again if it means brushes that work properly.

    The pink tenticles are a little too pink. I'll need to bring some orange into them.

    This 2nd one is much better and more dynamic - perhaps angle the knife towards the tentacles it about to stab?
    The tentacle on the right looks like its got a great angle but goes off the page?
    Usually a compositional no no.....

    Thanks Kidult: Glad you like the second one better. I'm going to have to disagree with you on the compositional no no, though. Having lines that go outside of the canvas and then back in is a widely used compositional tool. It can really help direct the eye around the canvas and it makes things interesting as well. If all of our subject matters in art stayed within the canvas, things would probably get really boring. But, thanks for commenting though.

    Oh, and I used the Golden Ratio a little bit here. Just to line things up better between his face, his arm, the knife and the tenticles.

    Very tru too - good to break the rules. Plus I feel u on the tentacle coming back in but just imo that the s curve on the edge of the page would work too. just opinion though! Keep it up this is great!

    Next week I'm taking the Illustration Master Class that's being offered in North Hampton, MA. It's being taught by Dan DosSantos, Greg Manchess and Donato and a bunch of other really great artists.

    They gave out little homework assignments to bring to class to work on. One of the options was to paint a Robin Hood book cover.

    Here's mine: The first sketch was my first go at it, but I realized that it seemed too static. It makes a nice tarot card illustration or a cool character pose, but not for a book. The second one is that one I"m gonna go with. (Although, keep in mind that the teachers promised to alter them a lot...so it's probably going to change once I get to class.

    Just wanted to post a little update. I'm getting ready for Comic Con in a couple of weeks and so I've been pulling together my portfolio, biz cards, website, etc.

    Here's the sketchbook that I'll be handing out. (or hopefully in some cases, selling) I posted the cover a while back and some things have changed, namely the name and some graphics. It ended up being 28 pages of full color artwork. (This isn't really a sketchbook at all, since most of the work is finished paintings.)

    All I need to do now is write out the descriptions that go on each page (ex...{page 3 - the joker})

    Back Cover // Front Cover
    Inside Front Cover // Inside Back Cover
    Page 28 // Page 1
    Page 26 // Page 3

    If anyone's going to Con, and wants one, let me know. I'm going to be handing them out to Art Directors and artists mostly. But I'll have plenty to trade, sell, or give away to other artists.

    i dont tell you this enough, but your stuff is awesome!

    comic con should be sweet this year, i'll be there. I'll be mostly towards the left end of the convention hanging by all the artists booths and whatnot. Hope to see you there, maybe we'll bump into each other. Maybe not since we don't know what the other person looks like.

    keep up the great work man, hope i can get my hands on one of your sketchbooks. peace

    Dtran, Pseudocognition: Thanks for stopping by. I really need to get back to that Brock one and finish it up.

    Here's what I've been up to lately. The first few are for this week's CHOW. Doing my interpretation of what the Riddler would look like in Nolan's Universe.

    I really like that last one of the archer. You really get an idea of his general character from the pose and expression.

    I can't believe I haven't seen this sketchbook yet. It's right up my alley. Keep up the good work!

    I admire your ingenuity to saturate color keeping a very soft feeling in your pictures.
    Excellent work!

    Sourgasm: Thanks. I do plan on going back and finishing it, though. It was done in oils...and half way thru painting I realized something wasn't working. The colors were just a bit off from what I had intended...and I needed some better reference. Hopefully I'll get back to it soon.

    Clochette: Wow. Thank you.

    Update on Gothic Queen. Just laying out colors and forms still. It's a bit on the dark side...I need to pull out her form some. She sinks in too much into the background.

    I love looking at your work dude. You have an inspirational style.
