you are great! that's awesome! congratulations man!
... speechless.... speechless... No i take it back, this is gonna be such a Travis situation! Ha ha, but at least you're up front about it :-P I can deal with a fifty year deadline as long as you post some pages from time to time Absolutely loving these pages. Masterful. Such a treat.
hey mister frog, your stuff`s so cool and nice and awsome, and your making it for the sake of it and that s make it even more awsome. great spirit...
anyway, im not really into comix, but i guess it would be 1 thousand better if you were using your own hand for the text instead of this badass typo.... just my 2 cents allrite :s thanks so much for sharing!
your artwork has such a unique design and style.. why use a font of someone else?
lettering everything yourself is allot of work.. i would try to make my handwriting into a font. its a bit of a hassle at the beginning.. but i think you would gain so much from it!
Thanks folks, glad to see you are responding to the pleasure I took making these
Andreas> I might do that eventually I have the soft for it already, at the moment I am just playing with the bubbles and what text I'll write in them... I guess that part will undergo changes until the end of the book.
At this moment in time, it's there only for stand in.
But yeah, I am seriously thinking about it.
Take good care.
Thanks a bunch for all those replies it helps
WHAT THEEEE F..... 2000 pages ? holy dog .... well you just gave me big motivation im doing 30 page comics now full overpaint and im like lol there is soo much moreee pages and sudenly you say 2000 pages ... ok .... ok .... thanks you mister monster
Froggie, i need you to check your PMs
Fantastic start to your Graphic novel. This is going to rock. I totally agree that you have to "scare yourself" every once in a while....that is a sure sign you are growing and challenging your limits.
<Monkey King>,my favorite chinese myth novel.lots of artists made graphic edition for it.Can`t wait to see the final of yourskeep it up!!
I am still trying desperately to come back to my normal self after the workshop.
Still can't sleep
The experience was phenomenal, I had such a good time, met so many good people... I would have to cover the page with rumbling love letters addressed to Melissa who was such a sweet heart and who did such an amazing job at coordinating and saving lives, Coro, Jason and to the Massive Dudes whom I cannot thank enough for having brought me once again to their wonderful workshop.
So anyhow, I'll try to be short, but I just want to send out some love to the Bungie guys for being so cool, Mobby and Bay -- always a pleasure bumping into you -- M@ for being such an easy going -- and talented -- roommate, Daniel and Phil for their great photos, Lorn for his awesome speech, and my buddy Dan Milligan whose good humor I can't get enough of.
Oh and thanks to all of you of course who I've had the privilege to bore to tears with my 5 hours long lousy lectures and portfolio critics, I just hope that somehow you got something out of it.
I can't wait for the next one.
That being said, here's a little something I did today, it's a bit garish and not necessarily of the best of tastes but hey, I'll try to do better next time around

It was great meeting you at the workshop! and thanks for all the lectures and portfolio crit! It was fun watching you paint and I did learn a bunch from watching you.. I'm just curious how that 'flying dog' piece ended up like, it was fun (and funny) to watch you on that one I'm just sad I missed you pose upstairs.. :/
about this piece: ooohh~~!! It's shiny! Love the stylization on the face
i loooove the van dyke mustache she has hahahahahha. Black Frog i love you're stuff i bought Doodles the other day and im curious when are you gonna release a retrospective of all your art. I would buy that in an instant.
She needs two carrot pendants on each of her nipples - then the sex symbol is complete. He who wields the poison dart, is poised in art.
Keep doing you
Really fun and sexy.
I very much like your settings, you learn
Just thought I'd tell you how much I adore your work. I rearly comment on you big guys' Finally Finnished work because every one else pretty much sums it up, however I will make an exeption this time. Once again incredible icredible work, I can't stop looking, haha.
Hey man, I'll join the choir- excellent work...
You are so talented! Thanks so much for sharing and inspiring us all!
Monday I went to buy some stuff to finally gear up and try 3D modeling.
Tuesday and Wednesday I crammed my nugget with a shit load of technical blaaah and tutos on Maya, Mudbox and Zbrush3 and after a couple of wanky tests -- like how to create a simple and effective human box-mesh under Zbrush with fingers an' all -- yesterday I did that:
It's not yet finished I did some more work on it today, I'll show you the rest of it soon.
Hope you like it.

Good stuff Black Frog! I remember having read an article of you about why you haven't done 3d yet. So it comes to a surprise of seeing this from you! Pretty sure you will enjoy using Zbrush for your modeling because of easy it is to sculpt. So kudos for taking the initiative and make this nice model.
A small thing I wonder, is that surprisingly the images appear too dark on my monitor so I can't appreciate all the details... Anyways. always glad of seeing your new work.
