    nice set of images!

    a couple of them would benefit from more interesting hand positions. you used a semi-open twisted fist in 3 or 4 of them. the skeleton guy in the green hood would be a lot creepier if he was reaching or beckoning instead of clenching.

    Yeah, I'm sensing a very Hale influence in the hands. I think it works well in some of them, but might be a bit overused when seen as a whole. I dig the WW illustrations. I think they fit right in with their new ambiguous, creepy style. The first 2 for the Everlasting book are definately my favorites of that series.

    Hey Sam,

    This is a nice collection of your latest works, which is nice to see. But I will also confess that your influence of Christopher Shy's is very strong and overpowering. Not that am I down playing your work, rather just curious to see you to continue to explore and find your own style. Everyone needs a stringboard, just curious to see your work evolve.

    Your colors and style are really nice. Your connections on thecharacters looks like it needs some love thuohg. the places where necks, arms, and elbows connect seem a little wonky. I know this lends itself to the creepy style and all, but it almost looks like an excuse not to pay attention to anatomy, and its weakening the work in my opinion.

    Good to see more stuff from you! Been a while... I particularly like the pic of the guy lying in the hallway. Nice 'n creepy.

    Thanks everyone for the constructive feedback, looks like Ill be staying around...

    tgfx: Fixed the links, thanks to your comments!

    bwkeough: Spot on the hands! thanks for pointing out the hand on the reaper, but I have my doubts about making it "beckoning"... but Ill give it a try!

    fukifino: Now that I look at these, I can see myself overdoing that Hale influence, thanks for the comment Ill keep it in mind.

    mert_yavasca: Thanks dude!

    Jason Manley: Yeah, seems like I need to rethink my aproach to the hands, not to mention tighten my skills and get some talent on the process... Loved your WOD stuff BTW.

    Bomba: Hiya Jason! you are right on the Christopher Shy influence, Im certainly not trying to copy him outright, but trying to develop from the base of his technique. ATM Im trying to break apart from earlier influences and bring out some new perspectives on my art, and thats why I decide to come to CA.org. Thanks for the comments man, you know it means a lot, and Ill be curious about your opinion of some stuff I have NDAed.

    Magnethead: Yeah, I guess the main problem comes from not having fully developed my knowledge of anatomy, but I reckon that at sometimes I tend to distort things, to break away the initial photoquality of the images... no excuse tho, I know.

    Gauge: Buy yourself an Slayer CD. Trust me, you need it.

    CCThrom: Thanks man!

    Good to see you here, Sam! I really like these; great textures, very moody. My favorites are the demon fetus thing, the spider-covered guy, the prone victim with the eery circles, and the reaper. Nice design on the insect guy, too! Great play between graphic, flat shapes and photorealistic rendering. Pushing the anatomy in spots will enhance this dynamic tension further, but you know I think these are cool as is! Looking forward to seeing more stuff from you (it's been a while, and I was wonderin' what you'd been up to), and watching your style evolves.

    Just wanted to chime in and say that these are really striking images. Very tense and interesting to look at. I think you do show a style distinctive of your influences. It almost looks as if there is a little Brom tossed in there (the reaper/wraith figure reminds me of a couple of Brom pieces melded together). Many of these pieces make me curious to know what they are doing and what sort of story they have, in other words, you are doing a great job.

    Hmm, I like them a lot, don't get me wrong, only thing is it's not creepy enough. The monsters don't give out enough of a dire threat as it would seem.

    bat: These are some cool comments, thanks for em!

    Gamerhomie: Im curious about your idea of what constitutes creepy, really. This I ask without a minimun of snark or maliciousness, its genuine curiosity from my part. (If anyone else wants to take a stab at writing what they consider creepy or not, please do so.)

    freakedintheface: Yeah! the coffee cup man its the final boss!
