    I'm really enjoying this thread the more I check in on it! Amazing works every day!
    @jackcrowder: wow, very nice!
    @mojokingbee: your work is always impressive, always!
    @amalgamated biscuit: I love your style!
    @neilford: your work is beautiful! Awesome, awesome stuff!
    @sseloske: Love swamp thing! Great drawing of him!
    And everyone else, my god the work on here is great, I wish I could keep up with this level of cool! Great works all around!

    Here's some of my recent sketches, some of them inked, in their "ruff" stages, not cleaned up. Sort of a random bunch of undead things I drew on my night shift at work. Again, great art thread here!

    imaginary people: Cool versus drawing. Wolverine would win solo against Raph, but not against all four turtles!

    Here's this thing:

    These become what everyone wants from me as wedding season rolls around and people are looking for good gifts to give. I assume I'll do a few more in the next month or so. They seem to be taking me longer (I used to be able to bang them out in four hours... Did two in a day, once.), and I really don't like doing them. Also, somehow, because of how long they're taking, I've only made $4 per hour for the last two of these that I did... Not great. I wanted to paint another dog in a golf cart in the background, but only had two days to get this done, and ran out of time...

    @frequentcontributor -this is why the illustrator/artists of out grandfathers' days had studios (as in people they hired to assist them) - so they could train hungry young kids to crank out exactly this sort of commission for them in their recognized style, while they focused on the parts of their work that interested them. Then everyone was happy and the spice flowed. Sadly, the industry doesn't really support that model anymore.

    Sadly, the industry doesn't really support that model anymore.

    The classical master-apprenticeship still exists, only for a shorter amount of time and trust is a bit harder to come by.

    I'm trying to obtain an apprenticeship in the netherlands, it's slow going since everyone has timeframe issues amongst others. But I'll keep at it.

    Here's an acrylic painting from one of my photographs. The black was done with a granular texture so I really had to blow out the contrast to make this scan look anywhere near decent.

    pew pew


    @mellon and mojo: nice. nice, niiiice.
    @vertigo: I knew there was some Harmony involved, but it took me a minute to realize that was Battlecat, rock on.
    @Richard Pace: interesting sketchwork.

    @Ale, it wasn't actually meant to be Battlecat, just wound up that way inclined. Though it looks more like the other one, EvilSkellocat, or whatever it was called.
