Artwork Description

This is pure "guy stuff", I know... What can I say for my defense ? I really love the SF pulps and comics from the 30's, 40's and 50's.

This is fantastic! If I didn't know it was modern epilogue art, I would've sworn this was from a vintage publication.

Ahh, you got me there, Judy... Smile I had to scan a photocopy (but it was a really good one), just because the original is too big !

Thanks for your comment, Mark. When I do a "retro SF" piece, I'm completely under the influence of Wally Wood and the EC comics artists.

Thank you Alice. I used Zip-A-Tone for the grayscales (hours-consuming technique). Unfortunately, the scanning process makes it look like "normal" grayscale.

Beautiful work Mike, ranks alongside Wally Wood and Virgil Finlay. Great job.

it might be guy stuff, but its cool guy stuff. In fact, I'm going to pretend its ironic. Nice use of greyscale toning here

Art at its best.
