    Dude...these are awesome! The first one reminds me of The Libertarian (the movie with Johnnie Depp and John Malkovic?) Anyways, nice control over the paint and gouache. That stuff can be hard to work with if you don't have the hand stillness...But you do and these rock out.

    How much for the entire set? lol

    pretty bizarre slant to these, Dave, very appealing in a weird sort of way. beautifully accomplished, which i've come to expect. the crazy nun's hands are sweet, i like the subtle little mutation

    This one is incredible Dave. I love the colors.
    I can't believe how much work your producing. I'd like to see some of your comic pages, can you post some when your allowed to?

    Great pictures. With those "joyful" you've managed to achieve pretty dark feeling. Anyway, interesting ideas and style!

    Cheers

    Stark, you are awesome for asking me how much they are if on sale haha! I know you are only joking but it makes me slightly little more confident-!thanx

    Chaosrocks, you and Stark are both right about the first piece being related to John Malkovich, but I'm afraid it isn't from Libertine. It is an older movie with Glen Close which I don't recall the title at the moment.
    Oh I love it when things are polished but in a messy way

    dubpsychosis, what else can I say, thank you-!

    Raskolnikov, not as good as yours bud. I'm not afraid to say that you inspired me greatly with your last thread. cheers!

    masque, oh thank God you've caught the funny finger on the crazy nun~
    Obviously I started the piece focusing on the face, but by the time I was done, it is that killer finger that gave me subtle giggle. Thanx-!

    Mr-Joe, hey hey hey now whatz going on, dude! Thank you once again for your kind words. I'll talk to my friend, the writer, about posting the comic works and it shouldn't be a problem at all because itz all self directed.
    You will see when it happens!

    wicky, hello wicky how are ya! I have this feeling that things are going to get more joyful from here on-!! I really don't know what I mean by that but hey~joyful is good-ahhaha! Thanx

    Hermine, you are too kind. The crazy nun thinks that you are very good human being. She says thanx-!

    asoir, once you get to know them, they become quite friendly!
    Thank you, kindly, more coming-!!

    I find this work really inspiring! I've never seen such precise control, I especially like the portrait of Liv Tyler, very beautiful

    At the moment I'm practising painting, and thought I had watercolour but actually I'd bought Gouache. Which of your paintings uses Gouache and which watercolour? Is there a reason you use both?

    I love that nun man...if I had money, i'd make an offer on that one.

    great handling of the medium.

    hope you get some extra free time to make more art.

    Thank you all

    cyborgsquirrel, Thank you so much, you are too kind. I use watercolour to do the base blocking layers of colour. It seems easier to keep colours clean with watercolour than gouache. I use gouache for detail layers. You can do the whole thing in watercolour but the only reason I like using gouache is because they seem to be thicker than watercolour. I hope this helps

    Hazart, thank you, cheers-!

    Mr. Scribbles
    , the crazy nun is getting hot I know. Thank you!

    Andrade, yes! you make me feel like I should do some more!! Thanx!

    Texahol, I'm flattered, really. I think I can come up with some more soon! Cheers

    DanielC, I'm glad you enjoyed them. Thanx Dan!

    the distortions and exaggerations on Brody and Walken work well, they deal with these guys' well-known physical idiosyncracies. but Connelly and Weisz just look distorted to me, as if maybe you weren't sure what to caricaturize (is that a word? is now )

    maybe focus on Connelly's bone structure and Weisz's mouth?

    oh, yeah -- beautiful execution, as always. you use hot-press wc paper or illo board?

    You are Revolutionizing watercolor my friend, great stuff. Love them all especially the nun, I'd love to see you in action, you could replace Bob Ross's PBS time slot couldn't you.

    Can you please list, like all the materials you use for creating these estatic pieces of art because they are just wonderful. Dont worry I have my own little personal style, its just that I have never thought of painting with watercolor,and I just dont wont to miss any material that I might need. Painting in watercolor might just add a little extra that I need to get a 5 on my AP Portfolio, hopefully

    Ok, seriously, how much? I want that Rachel Weis and Christopher Walken tonight! Those are seriously awesome dude.

    If you wanted to caricaturise Weis and Connelly, I would distort Weis mouth maybe eyes, Connelly's jaw should drop a bit more and square it off... But that's just me, this is awesome regardless...

    I love your style, do you compensate from mistakes or are they all intentional?

    Cheers

    masque, thank you for your tips, bud. You saw right through me when you said that I was indecisive for choosing what to characterize in Rachel and Jennifer. I'm still warming up here, I hope later pieces will look much better than these. And these are done in illustration boards, mostly double-weighted and fairly smooth texture.

    adonihs, how nice of you to say something like that! Thank you kindly!

    Pencil Lad, oh I don't know about beating Bob Ross's time slot but it is true that I paint faster than most of my artist friends. I've been getting some great comments on the crazy nun. I think I should do a series. Thanx!

    JesArt, I will help with pleasure.
    Windsor and Newton's gouache is superb! Van Gogh Watercolour is okay.
    I also use Windsor and Newton's the red brushes, size between 5 to 000
    The paper, I use peterboro illustration board (Canadian I think), mostly double weight for its good thickness to absorb water layers.
    The trick is to KEEP COLOURS CLEAN AND SIMPLE when starting.
    I also use prismacolour white and red to accomplish different textures.
    I hope this helps^^

    Stark, hey bud how are doing! I'm flattered that you want my art work on your wall, thank you! I agree with everything you said about Jennifer and Rachel. They were distractingly beautiful in the reference pictures that I couldn't make them uglier, ergo I stopped the distortion in half way.
    Damn you, beautiful women!!

    Davi, thanx a lot! Guess what! the third round is coming soon!

    sidburnd1, that is a very good question and I will gladly answer.
    Yes, most of them "mistakes" are done intentionally because I could've prevent them by being more careful when I put layers. But you see I intentionally go aggresive when I put first several layers, thus the mess.
    I enjoy the visual contrast between the rawness and stylized details. Thanx!

    Redcoyote, I humbly accept your salute, respectfully. And I believe you spelled caricature correctly. Cheers^^!

    soooo freaking amazing!
    man, why doesn't this thread has 5 stars?!

    "I also use prismacolour white and red to accomplish different textures."
    is this what you use to make those visible strokes(like a pencil ones)?

    thx for posting
    very inspiring

    willing to learn!

    Absolutely beautiful. Are you by chance a fan of Drew Struzan? Although the paintings are very original, I see a bit of his style in your work. As Summonix askes did you use coloured pencils on some of these?
