God no comments yet.
I love your sense of design. nice tight drawings. I'm gonna guess that Jim Lee is a major influence in your pencils or maybe not. Are those studies from different comic book artist or are you emulating their style in your work? Nothing wrong with it but I'm not sure if they are your original work or just studies. I can tell the panels are yours they keep a consistent look.
I will be watching out for you

Jim Lee was definitely an influence for me but nearly as much as guys like McFarlane and Dale Keown.
I appreciate the compliments, even though I never really felt like I was all that great as a comic book guy. I made most of that stuff when I was in my late teens because it’s what I was into at the time and all my friends were also heavy into comics. I look at that stuff now and just see so many things I could have done differently. I was also a ridiculously slow sequential artist so it took me a long time to finish a page from start to finish.
Essentially, to be a great comic book artist, you don’t necessarily need to be an amazing artist to be successful, but you do need to be able to tell a story fluidly, consistently and quickly through multiple drawings. This is the part that I sucked at most. I’d much rather tell one story with one picture than a hundred little pictures. It was something I enjoyed at the time but I don’t think I would ever do again.

I clicked the thread, just because I thought your handle was funny. There's some really great stuff here....BUT...a lot of this stuff is finished quality work. If it wasn't so old, I'd suggest you post it in the FF forum, hehe. That's in no way a knock on the thread though...I dig seeing it. But now I want to see recent stuff! c'mon, boy-o! 6 year old art...I wanna see what the difference is. Pimp it out!

This is are a few modeling roughs for a piece I'm currently working on. I am taking a stab at re-creating an old painting I made a few years ago entirely in 3D. Currently, I am doing all my modeling in ZBrush but will be using a mixture of Photoshop, ZBrush and Lightwave (for rendering) to complete my image.
Essentially this should be a pretty easy image to put together as there are only 4 main elements that need to be modeled (fish,cat,bubbles,marble), but as soon as I get the fish and cat out of the way, it shouldnt take more than a day or two to render out and finish the entire image.I'll be modeling out the remaining fins today and possibly start on the cat either this evening or tomorrow. The marble slab and bubbles should be fairly easy.

I like your sequential art and the piece that you used as a basis for your avatar. However, the piece you used for your avatar could be well expanded upon with some specular highlights and a more refined texture to the skin. Especially where there is (carving?) in the forehead some specular highlighting would do wonders to create a more believable illusion of realism and form and texture.

i like your style. the variations between comic and just realistic. i find that most peope have trouble doing that, but you seem fluid between the two.
looking forward to more.

That last digi is coming along nicely, and I have to admit, I absolutely love the majority of the work you've been posting throughout this thread. Glad that I finally noticed it.
The zbrush work has been pretty sweet as well. The zbrushed robot is probably your weakest piece, but then zbrush has never seemed to work very well with mechanical objects in my opinion. I usually stick to 3dsmax for stuff like that.
Looking forward to your next updates

OI: Holy sweet mother of God
You draw the comic book characters I remember The ones I loved, The archangel IS AWSOME, I am litterally missing heartbeats. The spiderman and Hobgoblin, Me and My bro had a discusion of these things earlier in the week of spiderman, Hell I dont geek out about comics like I used to, but Damn, Seriously I am Dumbfounded, Where do you work if you can or dont mind saying, Dear GOD this is cool,... *shaking head* ...I like your scuba diver, and I know nothing about 3D works, but they look good to me,
The archangel is Amazing,

Thanks for the wonderful comments
I no longer work as an illustrator... I just draw for myself now but I do take on commissions every now and then.
Glad you liked the characters..... I may do a few more within the upcoming months. Im been itching to do a Ben Grimm for a while now

Another quick sketch.... just goofing off for a moment.
This was actually my first concept for the challenge but I axed it cause I thought it was a bit cheese. I did laugh outload a few times as I was putting it together though... its supposed to be a couple of divers swimming around what appears to be a reef, when in fact its a giant fish staring at them.

Very nice work. You're good at 3D modelling too, which is even more impressive!
