hey there dougbot im a longtime fan first time question asker. You say it took you longer to post that necro thing with the floating blue tube longer then it took you to complete it. How long did it actually take you as a quick peice and what did you use to create it.
that last post , the horns, is that turpentine and prismacolor on velium?? you said it was traditional. Your september 26th is very good love thAT depth, that's the look i try to get in my digital work, weeell....let's just say, i usually get to a space like this in a digital painting try to improve on it ruin it and can't ever get it back...EVER. So it's good that you can freeze it like that it's very professional. That's what i would call.....control.
Hey thanks. Influences are almost too numerous to mention. Everything gets squished into what I draw. As far as some artists Moebius, NC Wyeth, Terada, Dermot Power, Brian Froud, Craig Mullins, Andrew Jones, Sparth (the list of ca/forum artist could expand to the north pole), Carlos Huante, Ed Lee, etc. Films, comics, art books, ect., all of it factors into what fills my noggin'.
Right now Kong and Peter Jackson stuff is really fresh in my mind. Chances are if anything I do reminds you of someone else's stuff, it's probably ripped off. I'm not to original. In fact, I'm really not that good (I personally think I'm horrible. I feel like I flail around the canvas with no ryhme or reason. Trying to despertaly get better tho') I think my greatest asset is that I'm fast.
It's why I don't have much finished stuff. I usually get bored after about three hours, and want to move on. I don't know if I've ever posted anything that's taken longer than that. I'm trying to do more stuff that's takes longer, really focus on composition and things like that. I'm just not very good at it, and all that work looks far to polished.
Altough you might see a lot of flaws in each drawing you post, I have to agree with everyone else, I love it!
I'd say give us more, we need it!

Hey thanks all. Sapienz, I am a huge Miyazaki fan, so Howl's is probably in there (although I still have not watched it yet), but the main influence was Peter Chan. Does lots of cool stuff, old Monkey Island games, Grim Fandango, stuff like that. Search for his work, he's phenominal.
