Most of this stuff is from various commercial projects and personal pieces. All (with the exception of the Sun Micro ad) were made in traditional media anywhere between 1992-1999:

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

Hi Ben,Originally Posted by bengonzalez
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.

those paintings you posted are amazing. im inspired. thanks for sharing
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!
