Awesome 'Golden Age' Illustrations.
Added another PSD to my 'tutorial' thread here:
Been kind of down on the whole art vibe again lately, I think it's because I've been doing too many straight studies and not enough painting for 'morale's' sake. So, there's the disease here is the cure.
Experimenting with figures and stuff, more compositional devices and some new PS techniques. Difference brush mode anyone? The figures are boring as hell but, yeah.
Anyways, I don't feel like commenting as 'much' as I usually do on these - so if there is something you wanna know please ask.

This was actually the first of the batch, kind of that old storybook feel.
first two..... SO GOOD...!!!!!!
Awesome colours as usual Tom. What you do with texture amazes me. I'm loving your experiments.
This may be a little blunt, but I guess i'd like to see more solid forms like your recent EOW and that black and white mushroom village. A lot of these seem like splashes of cool texture as you play around, which is great, but i'd like to see a few more pieces that have a kind of solid direction. You seem to be at a stage where you're drifting around a bit, and although it looks beautiful, it's all fairly samey. Not that it isn't awesome.
Don't get all emo-chef on me, just keep pounding away! You kick my ass every day.
Youre a cool cat Tom.
Oh my... your work makes me so happy! Specially your colours, can't seem to get enough of them. Love the first one and the two last of this last batch, and the whole of your previous post, specially the weird bird guy and the one with the girl on the... snake?
Oh and thank you so much for stopping by my sb, I really appreciate it
i like the second third and last. has a nice over exposed look. keep it up!
hey man, cool updates; meant to reply to your last one but I often look at peoples updates then reply a bit later on, just to let things sink in a bit. cool updates though man, I like the piece with the guy painting in the buff (made me laugh a bit hehe) and the piece with the girl underneath the giant mushroom; nice feeling in both of them. must say though these recent images with the silhouettes have a really nice mood to them; probably helps that when I first saw them I was listening to some more mellow stuff but yea seriously though I saved all of em and will probably use them for backgrounds (if you don't mind of course) at some point (I cycle through backgrounds alot).
on the downness on art, I think I know where you're coming from... like you said doing so many constant studies and generally art related things (seems like you were really crankin stuff out lately) could have just drained ya. I would say just really take it a bit slower for a little while; some time off never hurts hehe. no idea if any of this helps (didn't offer much in the way of criticism on your art) but yea just figured I'd throw my 2 cents in. great work either way, keep it up.
I can only echo what other people have already said but, Beautiful work and great color sense.

that first one is mind blowing, if the figure on the third one stood out a touch more it would be my fav out of the bunch, great technique
You're still throwing out the textures like a true master, you drunken crayon masher you.
love the first for the colour, the second because it reminds me of a book of prints I've got, and the third because you've acheived a sense of reality using your wonderful patterny technique.
keep it up, I certainly will if I stay here looking at this gorgeousness.
