Artwork Description

This is a picture for a contest at J. Torres' "Open Your Mouth" forum. The bits and pieces at Chiron's feet are the villians from the first round's "design a villian" entries. -- If you like fun comics about kids and giant robots, check out "Jason and the Argobots" from Oni Press, by Torres and Norton!

Thanks - I really loved doing them! I was taken to task by one or two people for the purple color breaking through, but I kind of like it still...

Thanks, JP! I'm often inspired by the power in YOUR images, so it's great to have you stop by and say that!

Thanks Malachi! Always good to hear from you. I loved doing the clouds on this, which I thought contrasted nicely with the more techno character.

Nicely done. LOVE the clouds. =)

Very cool of you to say, Andreas! I had much fun on the sky. I can't take credit for the character, though - it's Mike Norton's design (though I like to think I did him justice here!). Thanks.

Thanks, Christine - you're "sweet"! I really like the combination of realistic and flat line-art that I've been doing lately, and this character in particular allowed me to push it a bit farther. Glad you liked it!

It's been a while but I have been looking to see if you've had something new. I love this style because it plays tricks with your eyes, you see things that look almost photorealistic and then your eye captures the parts that aren't. Very interesting and exciting style Smile

Much appreciated, Steve! Of course, I was inspired by our man Frazetta on the style, and hoped that it would weave well into the more cartoony figure for a good contrast. Thanks for posting!

Thank you for the nice compliment, Diane! Different is the best, especially in the kind of art we do. Thanks again!

Wow! This piece feels so different. I love the cartoon quality and yet, there's a realistic texture feel to it as well. Fantastic work! Bravo!

Very cool of you to say, James! I only try to keep up with you and the other great artists around here. Thanks!

This is beyond comicdom my friend! I'm totally impressed as usual! you're a true Artist!

Thank you, Marley! I did the character in a style similar to the comic - at least the inking style (it's a black and white book). I don't generally do inking, so it was good practice! I'm glad you think it blended in successfully.

Thanks - I'll need a lot of luck; there are some really good artists in the competition (it's a comics contest, and I've never done comics before, so I may be at a disadvantage). -- I try to keep doing different styles, thanks for noticing! Some I do better than others...!
