    Been a long time since I had a peek at your stuff Simon-sir, think you've made good improvement on already insane skills over the past year. This last batch is full of great stuff, most I remember, some I don't but I like all of them.
    Thanks for sharing, it's pretty cool and inspiring to this little collection of yours - it's awesome. Psyched to see how you ride 08 sir,

    cheers!

    zweiDee - thanks, mate - top left is the original one.

    Comic book stuff from a story I had to kill. It would be way too long for what I had in mind and I was not really pleased with the style(or maybe I just want to draw more and paint less).

    Awesome sketchbook you've got Love those sketches and inked images at the top of this page. I agree though, those last two pages seem to be inconsistent. At first glance I couldn't really tell what made them look that way, and I'm still not really sure.

    It has something to do with the colors probably, as the first panel is really warm while all the rest are very cool. The text balloons change color in every panel as well, which enhances this inconsistancy. Also, the lack of a real defined background in the first one opposed to a background in almost all of the panels to the right might cause this. Just my thoughts though

    Hello, Simon... I'm sorry I came late to write response ... you already had rearranged the pictures and removed some of the images. Story looks a bit different now and the main character too... I looked earlier and he looked younger and... how to say it... not yet seasoned. heh, so too speak... He had a very smooth, round, cat like face, you know, too fresh, too young, without any signs of past . I remember the position of the head was too common too, straight up front to us, could be a bit more complex if you don't mind me saying this...
    But overall I look with pleasure at the pages you show... I don't know much about comics styles but those look pretty unknown to me. I don't remember seeing anything like this before... except they are very much you...And that's good to see and recognize in those.

    The mood they create is this:
    Grim, dangerous, dark city, sort of like sewage like atmosphere... dead buildings with windows shot... maybe there is someone behind them peeping, maybe none is looking out of them, not wanting to know whom the stranger at streets is looking for.
    Everyone is minding their own business, curiosity is dangerous and nonsense.

    The man looks calm and composed too, dressed accurately, I would say even with elegance and self-esteem. Posture is full of calm self-assurance too. I would say he is a man with means and with a certain social status... Hat and his decent coat are of the style of bourgeois wore at the 1920th.

    His hands are mostly in his pockets all the time,,, it is windy and he is extremely in control of his feelings . he should have elegant gloves on his hands I think... or it will be out of character I think . He all is very much armored and protected form outside with his clothes.
    He smokes despite anything what happens around him... It's a bit strange because he looks very youngish. Ha... I wonder if he still held a cigar in his mouth when he fell down the gutter in the image.
    It seems like dirty, suspicious looking town doesn't bother him.

    The rat looks agitated though... first and only resident on streets.. My impression: this city is closed and like a vampire, like a black hole it only takes in other people energy, never gives out. This startled rat ... it feels like a victim of the city... the city dwells, fattens on its fear and emotion, sort of eats it, devours and spits out useless shell afterwards.
    Cold, powerful city with crazy lunatics on streets.
    The man is looking for soemthing and he is lost, but not confused. That's his job to be in trouble.

    I like the simplicity of means in the images, Simon. I do love laconic language... it makes it harder job for you though, you need to be precise and much more expressive than with many details.

    Remember... you once told me that you like Japanese art and added that it is very hard style to follow. I agreed but I didn't expect to hear that... Simplicity looks so easy to be achieved but it is not... the same is here... it demands so much of strict taste, like balancing on the rope.

    I think drawings with added texture look a bit more expressive, but many drawings are already bull's eye from the beginning. Especially silhouettes of man's figure and the city. Color is good, cold, deep and rich. Color of suspense.


    Crits: The man face: a bit too pretty and smooth and not wrapped in the air like the other objects are...

    the picture with man's feet on the scratched floor.
    First of all, the box with future text is not well incorporated into the composition of the image... and second the perspective of the legs and feet is very different from the look from above on the floor and little box on the floor
    The feet don't stand firmly at floor as well. he is floating... lighting on the box is strangely different from the lighting on the legs...shadows are not consistent too I think and not best angle of the them for composition,,, should be better if they were not almost parallel to the base of the picture IMO.

    But most of all perspective of the legs and feet is disturbing... I think with more overlapping it would be better, with a different angle of the legs contours. they need to grow faster up IMO.
    if you don't mind here is the photo to look and compare... sorry to annoy you with it, but it is with really good intentions and respect to your work as always.

    http://www.michaelyork.com/downloads...ndingGreen.jpg

    The composition of this image is not so good IMO... objects are too scattered form each other... would be better to group them more maybe or rethink distances between them IMO..

    I think the size of the legs are not believable too comparing to the little box's size: perspective of distance is wrong i think

    Boxes with texts... I'm not very fond of them now... too accurate and calculated looking you know... they kill a mood a bit maybe... with them rougher and more jagged it would be better maybe. half erased maybe.

    ------------
    I like the head you posted earlier... looks great and I can't tell which one is better. every variation adds its own additional nuance. but the shape of his head, the dark outline it forms in contrast with negative space is beautiful on its own... and the image has much more, expression, texture, rhythm, attitude, illusion of reality, of some brute standing in front of me and breathing heavy and ugly right in to my face...
    Hope you are doing great... I'm looking so much forward to your LMS piece... I know it will be some story for me to chew on.

    Your art: drawing and paintings never leave me cold. You got your true viewer in me, Simon. After seeing them already and coming again they always stir emotion in me and it is consistently the same emotion.
    This last rough morning drawing is very attractive...one of the best head your drew. he is breathing as I already said...heavily, ugly... the head looks at me and communicates in a very vivid way.
    I missed so much you posting every day, seeing your thoughts and mood every day.
    I hope you send or planning to send your drawings or paintings, at least one but better more to Spectrum... They will be published I'm sure.
    deadlines is 25th Jan.
    I really wish you did it.
    Love
    Sveta

    Wow...i guess this is why your in the "exclusive sketchbook" section. This stuff is off the chain...absolutely ridiculous... Goes to show, when someone thinks they've capped, theres always another level to achieve. You've pushed it man. Thanks for being a new inspiration for me!

    Wonderful.

    I wish my sketchbook was so tasty. That "blue sketch with the guy confronted by the many faced spirit" i liked especially.
