Man...your works are so detailed, so lively!! The lines are crazy, and they just bring out something more in the people you draw!!
voraz: Thanks! Traditional media is where my heart resides, so I'm glad you're diggin' it.
Arne S.: Wuuuurd! John Lee was the man. Thanks
MeTal Mike:Killah! Thank you sir.
Burmak: Heh heh. Gracias!
marioucci: Watch me gooooo! Glad you like it so much, thank you!
skrubbles: Damn, you went back a ways! those still were a blast for sure. Glad you enjoyed them.
JazzWh my crazy lines, yes. I don't understand them half the time, but they seem to work. Glad you're diggin the action, thank you!!
Here is a detail from a portrait I just recently finished. If you want to see the whole thing you can cruise on over to Phuzion's VIP Lounge, or The D/L Blog, just click the link in my signature. The full portrait is basically three different versions of black, kinda hard to see everything until it's dry enough to scan in... more of a study in value/temperature control than anything else. It still needs work, but then what doesn't, right? Right.

Hey an update! Like everyone else I dig your stuff. You're one of the first guys I saw on this site and motivated me to get back to working the pencil. You came a long way and your style has evolved quite dramatically. I like seeing that beacause it gives me hope! So thanks.
I havent even gotten halfway thru your Sbook but i have to say that as far as realistic beauty is concerned, you have the best eye i have ever seen! i will def follow this stream.
Eon: Thank you... motivating someone to pick up a pencil is a huge achievement, so I'm glad I could be a part of that.
Ethan: As I've said in the VIP Lounge, it's a huge compliment for you to sift through everything, thank you!
This is a character lineup for my design of "Alice's Adventures In (Winter)Wonderland":
And here are a couple pages of development for a redesign of Fritz Lang's 1922 film, "Metropolis":

I really love those Cowboy pictures. Did you ever study any Charlie Russell or Remington paintings?

Kerberos: I know who they are, but I never really studied them. I didn't actually become interested in their work until very recently. Glad to have another Western fan in the crowd
MeTaL-Mike: Gracias muchacho!
Alex Alexandrov: That one was a lot of fun since I'm not usually a landscape guy, glad you're diggin' it!
Just a quick post here:
This is the progress on another oil painting. It's a portrait of a friend of mine and fellow graduating student at Art Center in Pasadena, CA. Oil on panel, 14"x18", WIP.
Loving all your work dude,nice stuff :-)
painting is really coming along, actually looks great as is but i`ll look forward to see what else you do with it....
Of course the fear/danger is always that someone will take a painting too far and ruin it. I think my single biggest focus these last few months has been knowing when to stop on a painting. As soon as I feel it could be done I lay my brushes down and walk away from it for a while. So now I'm calling this one finished...
Great work mate. You are truly an inspiration.
I really love the zoo sketches. Love to see more.
what can i say ...unbelievable...great stuff
i love the ice druid.
truly beautiful anatomy.
the coloring works really well too!
definitely a fan.
Nice work on the oil painting. One (small) thing I did notice is that the hair seems very flat.
good call man. love her hair and arms, got a slight euan uglow touch going on there.

At any rate, I did this painting in December and for some reason I didn't post it. So here it is. It is 24"x36" Oil on wood panel, which you can still see around the figure. You can see the second piece in this series in the V.I.P. Lounge! Just follow the link in my sig. If you're not a CA member and can't get into the Lounge, well you'd best sign up son!
I know someone mentioned the hair in the last painting looked flat, but that was very intentional, I promise For some reason I like to use the hair is simply a framing device and don't usually like to render it. I like the play of graphic and modeled. Okay, that's it for now. I'm going to try and get off my lazy ass tonight and scan some sketches. I've been doing them, but work has been hectic and sporadic of late which leaves me NOT wanting to sit in front of the computer in the evenings. But! I miss y'all and need to get over my pansiness!!
beautiful colors. I like the gradient from warm to cool as you go down the painting. can't wait to see the pencils.
Well, as I promised, though a day late, here are a bunch of scanned sketches. The pages are unedited, so there are some shitty sketches, and some good ones and some in between. The fun part is that this is only half the scans... if you want to see the other half, just make your way to Phuzion's VIP Lounge, linked in my signature, and enjoy the rest of them!
Ok, so im lazy , and I dun wanna look to see if ive posted in here on this name yet, but I have posted on my old nick ... burning eyes... yea i think i was the first reply.. fuck yea, anyways 4 years later, at age 20 instead of 16... well fuck, your still awe inspiring, and an inspiration to me! cheers! haha, ill be back!!!
edit- btw, your paintings are SO SWEET, hopefully I can achieve 1/4 of that on the paintings I will be doing of my sister, then I would have many satisfied people, only wish she was still here to see them when they are done, if you have a chance, I will be putting WIPS of them in my book, maybe you can stop by, and give me a few pointers, so I can make them as good as possible... it would mean the world .. ok im gettin annoying.. again cheers, and time fo sleep!
All your stuff is so cool... I love the way u use brown paper - the white highlight gives it an awesome quality!
As always a pleasure visiting this sketchbook. Any tips on painting with oils? im about to start an oil painting for the first time... thanks ;-)
i like the way you drew the horses, the sketchy ones. its reminiscent of dynamism, which is way cool.
I really love the metropolis redesigns. Awesome portraiture also!
