    I'm part of a group comic art show in Paris, starting July 7, sponsored by and Artoyz

    And because I love and trust you guys, here's a sneak peek at my piece, a new take on the SPIDER MAN 2 movie poster.

    Thanks for the comments, kids.

    @paul - That's really great!

    @oddbill: wow, dude... really, wow...
    @mojokingbee: the roller girl makes me think of whip it, which is good because whip it makes me think of Ellen Page, which is good because Ellen Page makes me tingle all over...
    ...Which is good... I'll stop talking now... You're good is what I'm trying to say...

    @ sizer: damn, that's some good design.

    Started something new myself after weeks of procrastinating. Don't know where it's going or if It'll be any good. I wanted to do something (don't know yet what) framed in a JH Williams III kinda way.
    So not entirely original, but I need this kind of starting point.

    I'm working on the frame now, it's gonna take time.

    @m.e. walsh - Very nice! I like the slight blueing of the line art. Really sells it.

    @imaginary - ha, wow. I don't envy the aneurysm you gave yourself coloring that. Nice work.

    @Kevinmellon - thanks dude, it's a subtle detail that adds a lot!

    As always, amazing work from all.

    I have a Photoshop question that I am hoping someone may know the answer to.

    I frequently use the magic wand tool to make selections on my black and white ink art when colouring. For some reason when I click on a white area it will select all the white instead of the closed section. I can go to a colour layer and select the colour but I can't seem to make a simple closed selection on the B & W original. Any ideas?

    It is Photoshop 7 I am using and this is a task I used to do all the time. I'm thinking something in the settings, that I cannot seem to find, was changed.

    Photomagex: it may be the 'contiguous' option of the wand tool 'cos when that's checked, the wand selects only adjacent areas of the same colors. hence all the white areas being selected even though isolated. Same thing happened to me a while ago and that turned out to be it.

    An illustration of 'Doctor Mormeck', a strange character created by Jeff Vandermeer - the art is featured on his blog also here

    @donnie…ah, she was character I designed for a kids book. Just revisiting.
    @M.e.walsh….nice Ms Martian.
    @imaginary…looks great with colours though I shudder to think about the colouring process.
    @moali…beautiful piece.

    Tonight's stuff…

    This is me struggling and at the limit of my current skills...Must level up. Hmm...leveling up in rpg's and art require the same thing...grinding..funny that.

    First off, I'm always amazed by all of the excellent work when I look through these threads. Not to bring the quality down, but here's a commission I did for someone on the forum over on the Thomas Dolby Floating City game. She wanted a new avatar and being that the game has a nautical theme she wanted an image of herself riding a seagull. This is what I came up with;

    M.E.Walsh - Really like that sense of innocent wonder in Ms. Martians eyes.
    Sizer & MojoKingBee - Awesome as always

    What I would imagine a female Hulk to look like...

    Last one (That'll I'll post here) I swear! As Mojokingbee said, I think grinding is the key. Try, try again.

    i've been working on an application form (it's for a place on a program for six weeks of working with design companies) that included a brief to do some self focused work it was a change of pace, darwing myself as me instaed of just using myself as reference for characters, here's two of what i came up with, first is two portraits seperating me and the artist persona from each other, i tend to wear odd hats/goggles while i draw it started while i was alone in a small room alone for six months working on an animation.

    vandalhandle and me

    and then i wanted to try to do a typography self portrait, i'm a bit shy and drew a blank on what words to use so i enlisted the help of my friends and these are the words they think descibe me.

    Horrible picture, actually. My chamera is pretty modest aND kinda low-res. Though, not my best work, yet. But, you know, practice...
