You are great.
Really dig your stuff dude!
man, there's some good stuff here. i like that you work with an entirely loose, often chaotic, sketch style- but pull it in for tight, smooth pieces here and there. people often cover up a lack at capability in one area to push themselves further towards the other. you seem equally adequit in either realm. that's pretty sweet.
the last sketch in post #21 is one of my favorite pieces of artwork i've seen in a while. i like it unfinished.
retmia hehe thanks man, yeah it probably is
j a k e no problem jake, cheers for stoppin in
chaosrocksThanks Chaos, glad you think so.
bumskee Ello Min, cheers for poppin in, love your stuff to dood!
Jeff Jaws thanks JJ, will do !
Carnifex ello Carni aint seen you in here for a while, hehe I'm glad the hussar piece triggered a response in you, it was freaking me out a little as I was painting it but it soon wore off cant stand it now, and to be honest there is nottthing more nightmarish than some of Hussars paints, awesome stuff! Thanks dood
davi Thanks man, wow glad you liked it, I guess it pays sometimes to just cut right in with pen and design on the fly, doesnt always work tho! heh, and yeah I have been a bit of a hisat junkie recently, gunna rectify that.
Mr ManThanks Rich, cheers for popping in, I'm not really digging the Hussar piece at all anymore, and I geuss I will have to keep painting but its driving me pretty nuitty at the moment, I still havent found a media I am truly comfortable in, we shall see how well I get on with oils but I think its gunna answer a lot of my problems! Cheers for stoppin in.

the last one is pretty scary, and I mean that in a good way.
Is the superman thingy digital?
Nice stuff in here, especially the headless stuff hehe
The robot paint isn't bad at all dude, but I think it'd work better if the background was the same colour but loads lighter, providing some differentiation between it and the bot.
Love the Sooperman to bits
what kinds sick fucker gives this thread 4 stars , motherfuckers.
It nice to see you mixing humour and horror. both are kinda the sides of teh same coin eh?Nice updates man.
Jeff Jaws Thanks man, na Superman chap is painter/ps digital
SirGreenSock hehe thanks man, yea you are prolly right teeheh, well infact that was gunna be one in the series of colorin books - headless superheroes heh
dirty_c ello stateside, yeah you are right about the robopaint, thats the shit about acrylics tho, the fact that they dry a couple steps darkers, but could have been a lot lighter anyway. juss lost all love for it halfway through, so wrapped it up quick. fanks dood !
Badgerello dood, cool that you are back in Brizzle deffo meet up soon, juss gotta geta bit of stuff out way first and them im well up fer summit! Talk soon missy!
bhanuheh thanks man, yeah i always think theres something hilarious about horror and something horrific about humour so it all kinda balances out
Me and my girl went away for the weekend to this posh hotel right near shakespeares old house, cultral as fuck, so of course descended into a hazy blur of whiskey, smoking and random sketching hehe
Ali drew this in my book when i was getting more drinks, text was added a few drunken hours later:
and summit from when i got home:
The bottom black and white digi is my favorite. Would be great to see stuff like that more fleshed out.
WAOAOWOA Oh man Eri, this is one of the most inspiring sketchbooks I've seen in all my short days! Instant bookmarked, sir. I just love how everything's headless or missing or... I wish I could put it into words.. Your style is very unique, and there's not one sketch or painting that I don't like. Everything is great, please make more, oh man!
love your style man. dunno how this bad boy doesn't have five stars- five from me
I am the proud owner of pushing this beast up to 5 stars
Beautiful confident lines or "proud lines" as i call it.
I admit, I have done work inspired by you( headless people), so, thanks for that.
Very unusual, beautiful, inspiring work
These black and white scratchy digi's are bitchin', they look like creepy snapshots from cripple heaven. I've been painting here and there on your sketch, I'll ship it off to you in a few days for you to have your way with. Keep up the hard work man, I'm loving it all...
j a k ethanks dood, I totally could take them black and white things urther but at the moment i am enjoying the subconcious direction they take when I paint them and when I feel satisfied that I kinda know where they are headed, I dont feel I want to take it any further, atleast not in digital paint anyway.
Badgercool man, yer would be sweet to catch up with you and Lorenzo for a beer and sketch, lemme know.
