Your fat chicks are on point! I love the ping pong girl.
nice stuff man, you got some amazing rendering going on + great sense of color.
this is some dark and moody shit, and I like it. You know, something you'd see in doom.
Ben, well.... what I would like to say is: I have seen a lot of professional stuff in conceptart, but I found you, and listen to this: You became my most favorite artist. You paint the ugly in a beautiful way man!!!!! Total respect!
Few decisions what I made after I seen your art:
Ugly may live!
Never stop learning to draw.
Must learn Painter.
Must learn to Paint.
Keep it up!!
goofing around with Painter brushes again
Chromosome- Thanks for the encouragement
Sketch- That means a lot coming from you. I don't know where to start with how great your SB is.
Ostrander- Nice to here from a fellow creature artist. Thanks.
Peter Santha- Thanks man. I checked out your sketchbook and I'm a big fan of yours too. Your porteaits are awesome. They remind me Of Diane Arbus photos; She's my favorite photographer.

wow.. I love the colors and how the everything is so morbidly put together. I love it.
"I do not judge, I only chronicle"... sargent
Kick ass! The kid in b/w form is unnerving. Almost manchild freakish! I love it!
Damn dude I love the way you render down to black. Just like the masters. You pull it off beautifully.
Your concepts are really solid and your sketches are great.
I saw your Suffering concepts a while back, I think I replied in that thread, but I don't think I've replied here yet.
Anyway, keep updating dude. Love it all : ]
Awesom sketchbook, I love it

Ahoy! my mustache whiskers are pointing out in excitement with that last 'stark' toddler piece! such an interesting way of manipulating the body and controtion in all of the pieces, really interesting and provacative pieces mate!
the way those lights stand out in that last piece as well...may i be so bold as to say...dimensional awesomeness-ness? there, i said it.
Lovely stuff, I like the kid and the robot a lot!
I'm impressed!! You are one of the best artist I've ever seen. That's all what I want to say...
duude...realy love this stuff, great colors and textures..nice expresions!
I wanna see more..so keep up!
This is always some great stuff to come in and look at. quite enjoy it. Mucho kudos to the use of texture you get from your brushes on skin and everything it gives your stuff a lot of depth. The use of some graphic design elements in your work is handled really great as well.
Great flesh.. looks so fleshy..:0
So.. what did you draw to get so amazing at anatomy, did you draw people from life,tear up dead boddies like Leonardo.. or just learn it from books?
Im guessing you dug up dead people and drew them.. am i right huh?
gorgeous, rockin big time, there.
love your use of textures.. gotta try that custom paper style myself.
I love the texture in you pieces, your work is really inspiring. I've had some trouble before with the custom paper in painter, but for these kind of results I'm willing to mess around with it again
Impeccable work lately Ben!
