Hi, my friend. How are you? I'm so-so. I wish I were a bird or something.
Wanted to write a post in your favorite manner, the short and honest one. I predict it is not gonna happen.
OK, here my honest confession. I know many people like and liked the first page, "I'm Monsieur Herbert" very much. I looked and looked trying to understand its attraction and I really wish I could. But something is lacking in me, because apparently many people with great taste like it so much. And I don't have the same nice feeling looking at it. I know every needed words. Laconic image, texture creates a human face randomly, asymmetry, coarse texture. But when I look all my thoughts are going in direction of very dark face on the white BG, and it is biggest impression of all. I don't even go beyond this impression to the expression of his face (although he looks like a hungry dog ). I'm stuck with it. Right after this I'm gonna search for the name Herbert, maybe it will add some information for me. Somehow I have an association with fantasy literature, "Invisible human" novel, or something. Wish people say more and tell what they feel. I don't know why but i wish to dig this to the end. it kind of irritates me that I don't get the attraction.
Yeah I know stupid to wish this in art impression, but I will tell that I changed a lot so everything is possible.
I like the girl in helmet the same though ( second post), her face, her soft lips and nose and alert eye. Forms are very mild and line is precise, and they kind of flow into each other, in very gently manner. It touches me. and calms me the way your dog calms you.
Like the speedy of girls with sweet face and the little lightnings around her, like light bugs or christmas lights, very soft too and sweet.
Well those are my favorites and the one which makes me look more at it and search for feeling inside me.
I like the poses on some too. but it is mostly technical things I like: soldier, squatted blue collar dude and mysterious creature holding something, its lips again, very sweet.
incredible stuff here!
nice work hope to get to your level ... just wonderful wok
fucking magic once again , great stuff mate
tgfx - thanks a bunch!
sve - hi sve! Im fine! Feeling ok about being a human being, hehe. About Monsieur Herbert - some like it, some dont. Too many images in the world to waste time on one that dont do it for you the first time Searching for the name Herbert is not going to help much though, he is my character and the name was picked somewhat randomly. Always happy to read your thoughts. Thanks, sve!
rmore - thank you kindly!
ramniel - Thanks, man - glad you like it! My level is pretty easy to reach, heh.
Shinryu - Cheers, mate - great to see you start a new book!
Feeling OK about being a human? Today? at the mornings? Do you remember some one's words he will be happy if they come and take his brains from him, just leave this happy, in harmony who he is, person to sit on the warm beach and look at the waves?
You are not so different from me, Simon.
Wrote in so many words about picture except the info I wanted. Who is he, your character and why you chose him to be with the other characters in FF section, means it is special in something for you too.
If so many people like it I should look and try to understand if not like.
Forget to mentioned the comics colored character, I like him too, for the smile, it is vicious.
One is the begining
...are you One, Herbert?

Nice stuff, I like it.
abyss103 - thanks alot - glad you think so!!
sve - a human with no brain, ahh the bliss. No sure who he is - a mood i guess. Yes, im happy with it myself, hehe. Hmm, i disagree a bit - just because other people like it, dosnt mean you have to or try and understand why. I see the motivation of course, but imagine every time you run into a piece some like and you dont and you have to understand why - it would take too much time away from the works you enjoy. I dont like cheese even though millions of other do, hehe. Not meaning to turn this into a discussion. Cheers!
viag - thanks a bunch, really appriciate it! Im a big fan!
darkcult - thanks!
nineself - thanks alot! Happy to hear i can inspire!
Thanks for discussion . You don't know my Beatles story. I changed to a totally opposite opinion about them and glad I did. Thanks for the cheese info, it asks for very nice cartoon . You are a treasure cave in this, giving me endless stimulus and themes . Bears, sharks and cheese. heh. Thanks, buddy, eheh. Very sweet of you.
Drawing flowers in meantime I hope? It is FF section, they have to be your best, you know

haha, no problem, sve! I do believe in changing opinions. Just not if it has to be forced. Some stuff takes years to understand and appriciate(not talking about Herbert here). I had trouble understanding why so many people in Denmark loved the works of Asger Jorn untill one day i was at his museum (not the first time) and his paintings just open up to me and blew my mind. Now i even have a tiny piece of class he drew on, hehe. Happy that i can give you endless stimulus, hehe. Yeah, bears, sharks and cheese - really scary stuff! Damn, yeah, the flowerthing...
nice mood on the first couple ones...
