    @Paul: I especially adore the down-trodden knobby nosed fellow.

    @Sobreiro: My eyes want to eat that.

    @bivens I hate your awesome. Very good work, sir.

    @Neil Ford - Very nice. You attain a level of creepy and disturbed I wish I could hit on.

    WILL SOMEONE PLEASE GET MELLON ON A FUCKING HIGH PROFILE BOOK RIGHT NOW?

    Sorry for the shouting.

    And Neil, the crap you make Alchemy do just floors me.

    @Paul Sizer :D

    @Mellon - love the Thor and the DMZ. You keep upping the awesomeness on your art skills, so ditto what Paul says. Thanks for the compliment by-the-way.

    Mellon was sent to this thread by god to humble us all.

    @kevinmellon - That's some gorgeous work!

    @NeilFord - Dark and shiny all in one... Very nice, sir.

    Yeah, I've been off the radar for a bit. Thought I should actually post something, as I'm getting poked a bit for not doing so *grin*.


    Click for full size.

    Just a touch over 2 hrs. ArtRage and Photoshop, with initial pencils for character done in Sketchbook. Background is all personal custom PS brushes, touched up slightly with light/shadow.

    I'm testing out some new technique theories, as well as the concept of a "microscene" for a type of art commission. So, while I could have put more time in it, I really didn't want to invest more than a couple hours, as a high detail piece wasn't the intention.

    Not in a horribly textual mood at the moment, so I'll leave it brief rather than letting your eyes bleed from the ramble. ;)

    @Bivens - Thanks, dude!

    @Jigsy Q - Ha!

    @Seantaclaus - Thanks. Great lighting on that piece.

    Really Mellon, are you working anywhere with your art? I'd hate to think that someone with your skills is just going completely ignored.

    Going to second Sizer's pronouncement and ditto what Jigsy said.

    @neil: you have made Alchemy your bitch, sir and should definitely have some pieces up on its site gallery.

    @ALE: Thank you!

    @jigsy q - I've got a couple books upcoming that I drew over the last two years.

    One called LOVESTRUCK, about Cupid as a corporation and the people he employs to do his dirty work, due sometime next year from AiT/PlanetLar. It's done, just being proofed and edited and all that. It's with co-creator/writer Dennis Hopeless.

    I also have a book I drew this year called DEADLINE, about an ex-black ops fellow whose family is threatened if he doesn't do some terrorist bidding, from Kickstart Entertainment (producers of WANTED) w/ writers B. Clay Moore and Seth Peck. It's also done and awaiting printing/distro.

    I have a 4 pg short I wrote and did the art for that will be in next week's Hack/Slash: Trailers 2 one-shot.

    I'm currently trying to finish up the drawing end of a series I wrote called SUICIDE SISTERS. Its a 3 issue yarn about 2 sisters traveling across Texas trying to find the devil so they can get their souls back. I'm drawing the last 14 pages of 96, then I have to color and letter the whole damn thing. It'll be out from APE Entertainment whenever I can get it finished.

    I say all that, but I'm actually unemployed right now. :)

    A lot of the sketches/drawings I'm posting are me wood-shedding different working methods and style stuff. I need to get some new samples together and hit up editors.

    test
    first stage ...
    Challenges like this - it's always good to show your work as you progress through the thinking process ...
    Scale and perspective are both always tricky - but I think it is fixable ...

    Dusty Springfield">

    Vector art. Portrait of Dusty Springfield. A bit old. I had to leave my desktop back in the old US of A, and now all I have is a crap little netbook that struggles to connect to the interwebz.

    Ganguro Gal

    A Ganguro Gal. Japanese street fashion is wacky. Non-digital work.

    All the work I have digitized is old, but all the scanners and image programs I have access to are in Korean...*weeps*

    Alan Tyson: Thank you! I think she is doing the victory V with her pinky and ring finger. Which is very strange. Then again, she is wearing white lipstick ^^;
