Your stuff is so inspirational. (... a little frustrating how good I think it is...)Every time I think I might be getting a little better, I run across work like yours, that really brings me back down a notch. I realize this kind of stuff can be a little too flattering to hear sometimes, but... I wanted you to know some of my thoughts about your work. Thank you for sharing your art.
Wow, thanks, man. No such thing as "too flattering"..lay it on as thick as you want my friend I'm hard enough on myself, so I come hear to see nice comments like yours to boost myself back up a little. Preciate it!
NP..No, can't say I know him, but if he's a DA member I might be familiar with his handle. His DA handle that is....ahem...
No tuts at the moment. I might have one in a future issue of Sketch Magazine, but I have no idea when. I might post the same tut up here once the issue comes out. Really? My work makes me want to quit hehe. Isn't that always the way for artists.
if you want to quit than I want to cry, well...... if you quit that's just one more person I don't have to worry about. just kidding you should quit.
my teacher does not have a DA account that I know of. I just checked that name ahem not him. when it comes to art that is true everyone has to look up to someone, even Frank Frazetta looked up to somebody. so just know that your work is so good that I had a question about markers and my teacher told me to ref. your illustrations, if that's not saying your work is great than I don't know what is.
Hehe, that is a nice compliment. Thank you. As an artist we're never good enough. It feels hopeless at times, but if we didn't agonize over the work and obsess over improving, we never would. Sucks, but it's a hell of a motivator.
Thanks, man. As much as I stink with colors, I might as well be color blind myself. I can read values so much better than hues. Not much in the way of secrets. Mostly just putting a lot of time in to learn their characteristics. Strengths and weaknesses. The best way to do that is to just spend a lot of frustrating time with them hehe.
