Artwork Description

Another make-believe pulp novel cover, and it was done in photoshop 6 & 7. It took about 3 days of total hands-on painting time to get it to this point. I'm having fun with these; time just flies by and I'm learning a lot.
I was a bit worried after I uploaded this and looked at it from work. The difference between home (lcd monitor) and work (crt) is enormous and it's much brighter and washed out than I intended. I was going to darken it and put it up again but I kind of like it. I might put a darker one up later on my website but for now I'll go with this one.

Really dig the pulps. This one would fit in nicely within that genre! Excellent work, Jeff!

That IS a g. . . oh, wait. You're right. She's got problems.

Love it - a sort of loose but detailed style, if that makes sense. The woman is especially well done, the colours on her are amazing. But I bet she's regretting bringing her hairdrier to the woods instead of a gun... Wink

Very kind comment. Thank you. And sorry about the lion man thing. Pure co-incidence. Yours looks very good, too!

A quick look at your gallery shows me you are closer than I am to the mark I'm aiming for. Great work. Very flattered you like this one.

Hi Jeff, I just looked at your gallery after seeing this piece and I really like what you're doing here. This faux pulp cover idea is a great one and all your pieces are very well rendered. I'm looking forward to seeing what you come up with next. Great job.

Jeff, excellent work! I really like that old pulp look. The anatomy on the creatures arm is great. The solid form, stance and balance of the woman has that strong, classical feel.

I'll keep churning! Got a ways to go to catch up to you!

I figure I've got 6 planets to go before I have to figure out something new. 7 if we count Sedna.

The phoney pulp novel is a great idea. I really gives you alot of room to develop an idea. Keep it going.

This is excellent, Jeff. I'm so glad you joined Epilogue. Your stuff is really good (especially this piece). Keep churning them out, I need more! P.S. Nice website!

Art at its best.
