Very impressive, I really like your pencil sketches, especially that last one of the woman looking down. You make me wanna dig out my pencils and get to work!
Through the night comes the light that brings the day.
Through your mind goes the thought that forms the clay.
Wow, great work all around
Amazing pencil work and your paintings, I seriously thought some of them were photo's haha
you're a total BADASS!
The paintings look like photographs. While the they're all pretty impressive and well rendered, you should really try to reduce the distortion that your photo refs have.
your panel pages are amazing.
not only is the art good but
youre camera angles are great and the anatomy is perfect in each
hard to pull off
good job mate
Working from photographs is fine, but you have to compensate for this distortion. Your images are actually very well rendered, but they were obviously copied from photographs.
awesome sketches. totally love the "Big Ben" research pages. you sure know how to render believable cloths and faces. supermansketches are just as good.
way to go inspiring me!
Did you work with the little mermaid? That was one of my fave movies when I was younger.
Anyway.. Great stuff, and if you update I'll be back!
Beware, it's a crappy Sketchbook.
"We are all heroes! You and me and Boo..."
Awesome, very realistic rendering. I'd love to see more.
Your work has a really rich quality to it. I absolutely love the pencil studies. You definitely inspire me. I just hope I can reach your level some day. Thanks for sharing your work!

I believe he is refering to the nature of photography to distort the reference.
It is the nature of using photo reference. There is nothing wrong with it if you choose to stay close to the ref, if you want the image to maintain that photographed look. Some illustrators try to compensate for the lens distortion by de-barrelizing their reference in photoshop. You can see the distortion more easily in photographs of architecture...the edges of the buildings curve a bit. It happens to figures and faces as well. I don't really see it in your work but others are more sensitive to it than I am.
Here's a link illustrating the lens affect in architecture:

i love the classic/strongmen dudes.
your Ben looks like a revisioning of the hulk i did as an early industrialist named Bruce O'Banner.
... make him green!
i actually like that they look like poor photographs...they're kind of eerie-er that way.
my crit would be that some of the surroundings aren't rendered quite as well as the people.
if you have any more paintings from that collection with the children, show em
