    Hey Brendan,

    Great to have you back Mike! Love the silhouette's,great ideas in there. I really liked your Marko inspired character designs.

    I just want to take a bite out of those clouds, they look yummy! Great work.

    Hello Mike,
    Those silhouettes are just what I need to see for motivation. Got to get my brain doodles onto paper. Love your great and strong work as always. Did you use a tablet for these as well as the
    Penelope linework?
    Thank you for dropping by my SB. You are so kind in you estimation of my skills.
    To answer your question............nope. I work in retail currently. Haven't figured out how to plug my traditional skills into the industry I once served in as a 2d efx animator. Been honing my skills in digipaint and now am in a enviro design class with an eye on character/concept design as a profession.

    Oh my goodness...look at you all...such kindness. Let me respond to each of you.
    EDIT: Dave : oh hell bro...didn't mean to forget you in all of that. Happy to know that you liked them. Again..i would really be intrigued as to what you'd do with the same brush. Thanks as always for pushing and encouraging. Cheers!


    Brendan: bro that was definitely one of the reasons why i did the sils, those images just hung in my brain and then i just riffed from there. Those guys are just incredible and I would be honored if i could borrow the book, trust me i will devour (visually) every image. Thank you so much in advance.

    Themissinglink: I thank you for your kindness on my loss, she is so dearly dearly missed. I will have to get over to your sb and see what's going on and return the favor. My best to you.

    Mack: Hey boss, im so glad you are enjoying what's been dropping on the sb here. Yeah after watching marko's video...it got my brain firing and wanting to go after that style again. It's so texture heavy and material intensive...it makes you think about how to create texture with just pencil strokes. He's a mad man(in a good sense). Thanks again for all the encouragement and support.

    AztcFireFlower: I don't know if you want me using your real name...let me know if it's ok. Yeah silhouettes are a great way to get what's just tripping around the aether onto the page. Yes, i used a tablet. Painter has a great brush just for this occasion, it's called the "Scratchboard Tool" you can find it in the "Pens" menu....that is if you use painter...if you use photoshop..im sure if you fiddle with a hard edge brush in the brush engine...it would probably mimic it as well. As for Penelope, she was traditional pen and ink then just cleaned her up in PS. The border and lettering were all PS.
    Oh no that was not just kindness...that was pure conviction as well...your skills are stunning to the point that I am seriously going to pm you about em. As for not being recognized in the industry...or working in it...my god they don't know what they are missing. The industry and the public suffer, and im not blowing smoke or bs-ing you. I can't wait to see your enviro's and more of your characters and concepts. You've got the skills and can't wait to see your work out there.

    Sirio: Oh it's been a long time friend. I've so neglected your sb...shame on me! Your new avatar kills me...that's just too friggin funny! Can just imagine the next few seconds after that photo was taken...the cat launching itself at the owner all teeth and claws. Thanks for all the kindness, still trying to get my brain and hand in synch with each other. As for the tiger...i figured why not change things up just for a touch of variety at the end. I appreciate your condolences, trying day by day...it's all i can do for now.
    My best to you all!
    Mike

    Duuuuuuuuude!!!

    Those clouds are amazing. Definitely a leap forward for you in terms of color technique. I'd love to see you bust out some more of these little experiments. And the sillouhettes... Hot damn. You know, after looking at the Huntsman book and talking to you and Brendan I started inking out some sillouhettes of gestures for our favorite hammer-swinging norseman... but.. nowhere near the level of what you've cranked out here, man. You've always had killer linework. That scratchboard tool is doing you well...
