hey all. thought id register here and show some work, and also look for some work... HIRE ME! :bashful:
well, this is mostly old work, with a couple new ones. if you saw these in another forum, holla!
oldest and the beginnings of a strange obsession with aminal heads
early experiment with little bit of texture
some silly superheroism:
Agent C.B.Numbers battling Corrupt Former Agent C.T.Dots
Agent Mina and Gilgamesh, her lizard backpack
and most recent two, again with those crazy aminals
would like to hear what ya think... gracious

December 5th, 2004, 08:59 PM

December 5th, 2004, 09:00 PM
Very nice style I must say. The one with all the numbers has me a little confused.. but i still like it :confident ! Looks like you have some good tallent to bring to these forums, can't wait to see more!
December 5th, 2004, 09:50 PM

December 5th, 2004, 09:57 PM
haha cool stuff dude..
i like the paint by numbers and connect the dots dudes... good stuff...
December 5th, 2004, 09:58 PM
awesome stuff, the one with the pig head guy thats colored is pretty sweet, it reminds me of the author ray bradbury for some reason, not sure why.
anyway keep it up man, like your colors too.
December 5th, 2004, 11:59 PM
OMG! That's one of the coolest, freshest styles I've seen in a long time. Great stuff.
December 6th, 2004, 12:06 AM
Awesome. These are some of the sweetest illustrations I've seen here in a while.
Please post more :teeth:
December 6th, 2004, 12:13 AM
Really really cool work! Love the action in the Mina and Gilgamesh image! Great stuff, plenty of story in each picture makes me want to keep looking. No crits here, just kudos!
December 6th, 2004, 06:48 AM
that is super cool!
original and whatnot.
keep it up!
December 6th, 2004, 08:14 AM
I love your ideas and style! Awesome work :^^:
December 6th, 2004, 08:52 AM
refreshing stuff man...graphic design influence mixed with graff style add some political themes along with social conformity and you get some really hot work. i think you could push it just a little more...your hinting at it right now but possibly show more of just how fucked up everything is in the world. the political and social stuff doesnt exactly slap me in the face...does that make sense? if i had alot of money id hire you man. good luck
p.s. alot of your stuff is just a little too flat for my taste...it works for some of your work but hurts others...i think thats the designer in you.
December 6th, 2004, 09:49 AM
WOW, I really 'dig' your style. The CB agent one is such a good idea, tongue in cheek, i love it. I really like the animal heads with human masks, thats brilliant, although a touch more colour might improve it. Your figure work, is great, it captures expression well.
December 6th, 2004, 10:01 AM
absolutely awesome stuff! totally dig your style and your obsession with animal heads :bashful: please post more!
December 6th, 2004, 11:17 AM
I really like this style, kinda combines strict design composition with fluid conceptual styles, and that lizard electrocuting that guy is just brilliant :confident .
great stuff thanks for sharing
December 6th, 2004, 11:44 AM
well, so I guess thats reeeeeeaaaaaallllly awesome what you're doing there!!!
I love the elements you're working with, keep it up man!
December 6th, 2004, 11:54 AM
wow i enjoyed all of em especialy the first, second, and last..
i really like the way ud raw those gasmasked soldiers, but the mirrors in the first pic don't reflet what ther supposed to.. how come?
December 6th, 2004, 12:10 PM
great, great, work! you have a fantastic imagination and obvious skills with draftsmanship to pull them off. loved you site.
man, i just love the quirky take on narrative. so nice to see.
December 6th, 2004, 12:22 PM
I agree with the crowd, great work!
December 6th, 2004, 12:39 PM
no point for me to restate the obvious. Those that preceeded me have done so already.
There're a few oddities in the mirrors I noticed, maybe they're mistakes, maybe they're intentional, and maybe you can tell us what the intent was.
in the bar scene, the mirror only reflects the very top of the ape and the vulture, which suggests they're sitting very close to the wall that the mirror is on. But the tiles on the ground indicates they're good few 3 or 4 feet away from the wall, in which case [accounting for the slight downward tilt of the mirror also] there would be good deal more of them reflected in the mirror on the wall.
in the dressing room, the Loutrec prints in the reflection [if it is a reflection] are not mirror-imaged. Maybe its a two way mirror for someone spying on the performers, but then I wonder why the lights and makeup items are on this side even though the performers who might use them are on the opposite side.
can't wait till I get home so I can see your animations.

Re: CT dots, et al image -- I found this to be smooth and very creative with excellent humor behind the concept. Ya know Chris VanAllsburg? He did the Polar Express, Jumanji, etc. books and I just saw a lecture by him and he showed some illustrations that really mirror this concept of yours. His was all about how a coloring book full of characters and how they feel to be crayoned. Totally funny.
Keep em coming!

I love the "orange bear"
such style with the letters
December 6th, 2004, 07:35 PM
very cool. im liking your imagination. war pieces gave me feel of Half-life 2 game and Mous by Art Spiegelman combined.
December 6th, 2004, 08:12 PM
thanks everyone for viewing these pics.
thanks also for the crits. Ill take them in by osmosis.
as for the bar with the mirrors, yes, yous be correct, the angles are quite distorted, but i felt it could flow as it is without taking too much away from the drawing itself. It's a visual quirk that I noticed but left as is. (Im fond of visual quirks) With these animal head drawings i wanted to make some strange mix of 2d and 3d space. Almost as if things look cut-out, but at the same time very full and round. The environment seems like it has depth, but at the same time can be as flat as a simple diagram. I still want to mess around with it some more.
hito: i think i will find you very useful in my future... when you mentioned the Lautrec prints in the background i smacked myself! That totally passed my senses, i worked on this drawing after workhours and missed this fact. Damned if i do it again. I will get around to fixing this silly mistake.
As i look around this forum, I see mostly realistically rendered drawings. Ill definitely take a bigger shot at using a fully rendered approach, practice different methods in CG, and have some meaty criticisms from you folks. This should help me out with some of my own ideas and stylistic hurdles.
December 6th, 2004, 08:25 PM
weeeee these are so nice! ive been looking at them for a long time now and they got that wonderfull gift of... causing a smirk... a thought... a critique... what i want to say is that they got a lot of depth and id really love to see more of your pieces around here in the future
 your bio is funny as shit btw... i nearly peed myself of laughing
December 6th, 2004, 08:51 PM
these are all really nice.
i'm biased because they fit my taste :) [check my sketchbook]. love the subtle gradients you put all over the place. also, your stuff has a lot of cool viewpoints and visual tricks, mirrors, etc. are you familiar with bilal's stuff? if you're not, check him out.. french comic artist i think..? the concert poster rocks, too. are there prints of this one? i collect rad gig posters
