Its' free and it takes less than 10 seconds!
hope it can be identified, the posture is from the movie "falling down" :
Looks good, but wasn't it "D-FENS" on the license plate?
Tom Martin, stuff-drawer
I really thought it was "d-fence", but seems you are right.
However, maybe i can get along with the double-meaning(correcting pen&ink is somewhat nasty).
I know this it not really good
but i felt s.o. had to do this
I don't know the first guy, but man..... Condi Rice is just awesome! The bg is kinda busy though. Maybe use some thinner lines there in the future, cos the detail rocks. Just kinda fights with Condi.
Wish the picture was slightly bigger.
Jan, don't insult yourself like that, allow someone else to say that. Seriously, if it wasn't good, believe me I'm sure there would be someone on the boards to be (dare I say) that guy -
I really like these, they have a very underground/editorial style to them, and I'm sure you could break into that industry with this style. I think one think you might wanna look into is building up the line weight in key areas to make things "pop". like C. Rice's head and maybe the eyes, bottom of the skirt, so on -
I dig the first guy, too, the weakest point I would say for that is composition. Keep postin', and make them bigger, please.
Thank you for comments.
At the first pic a had a try on mr. Olmert, but i'm not sure about that, because he's rarely on tv, and with a few photos maybe i don't got the feeling for him.
With the lines i agree, i've only used that stick-it-into-the-ink-bottle-pen, so maybe working more with contrast would be an better option, but it would also mean more work.
Here a somewhat bigger rice-head(The Rice-picture is about 14x22cm):
and a spiritual drawing (says : zen means obedience. i will please the master.):
hehe, very nice style...
You have a good sense for details and shading...but watch out when it comes to readability...less is more sometimes.
Look at your first pic, you have a clean compoistion with large white area (also negative shape), black area and gray less important, but lovely detailed area. Everything works perfect and you can read the whole image.
On the second it's less readable, the background distracts from the focus...
On the third image actually there are hardly areas which are standing for their own so you could read em clearly...the whole body, inlcuding head and clothing is forming one big gray area...
Work on this, everything else is top notch so far!
I personally like the rice pic
it's so phallic! ^^
did you once do a "NPD" related pic with a guy pissing his pants?
(just curious since the pic is on my HD and the style is quite similar)

Thanks for the crits, Fozzy !
Maybe the last one would look better if i would fill the background.
@Infinit :Yes, that was me. Udo Voigts head attached to the pissed Rostock-Lichtenhagen one.
