    hey, real cool. I'm gettin a vibe of Blue Submarine #6 off of the second peice, but it is really capturing. a nice feeling of intensity.

    the plants on the first at misplace, IMO. seems like the left-most is attached to the figure, or at least not differentiated enough.

    like the peices though. lovely brushwork

    Look, you know what I mean. You take a bunch of people who don’t seem any different from you or me, but when you add them all together you get this sort of huge raving maniac with national borders and an anthem.

    i don't have concept sketches of the shark soldier, this is from someone else's comic...paul maybury is the regular series artist who designed the characters with writer mark andrew smith...these are my drawings before i composited them into the scene though...

    Love the muted colour schemes.
    The plants that are out of focus in the first image, aren't really working to me - they look more like a wishy-washy watermark on top of the image. May need slightly less blur and/or a play with the colour and tone.

    my sketches here... http://conceptart.org/forums/showthread.php?t=92997

    Hey joe,
    BTW, I love both pirates and cowboys. I have a pirate pencil topper on my wacom stylus. And last time I threw a party it was Pirates and Cowboys dress up theme. I was the only cowboy, and there was only one cowgirl. Everyone kept calling me woody cas im tall and skinny. So if it was VS I'd have to say the people spoke and pirates won. Though in my personal opinion its too close to call and they'd fight back to back

    The first pic... lots of comments about the plants. I think they seem weird because they are so obviously a 'FG plate'. I think they would look less weird if you had a couple more of an inbetween size recedeing towards her. Those three look kinda flat despite the blurring/scale. Think this would resolve it.

    But I love them both. Keep on posting.
    And thanks for your comments in my thread. You might wanna consider adding ur sketchbook link in your sig as well. You'll get more looks that way
    (everyones doing it!).

    peace

    here is another panel from my book monoluminant...
    monoluminant
    and a detail shot of the insect from it...
    monoluminant
    thanks for all the comments and critiques guys...i see what you mean about the dirty foreground in the first image, hopefully it will work better at actual size (it will only be about two inches wide on the printed page)

    awsome. i love how you handled his feet.
    one thing however, his sillouette isnt reading clearly. its his right hand, its not separated or identifiable from the back or leg. anyone who reads hellboy knows that its the right hand of doom, but i think if you showed this to someone who didnt know that one of hellboys hands is freaking huge, they wouldnt understand what was happening back there.
