The Justice Shanks Comic Cover The Justice Shanks Comic Cover

Rated 5 / 5 stars


Great work, looks awesome! Reminds me of the old Scud: The Disposable Assassin comic style. Nice colors all around. Is 3rd Guy under peer pressure to be there?

I understand you were commissioned to do this, but my only real gripe is that I would have liked to see a sadistic smile or at least more mood/personality instead of the cute blank "look at the camera and say cheese" type pose. I do like the eyes. Cool perspective and even though you're using bright colors, as a whole they look subtle. Nice highlighting and shading. The reflection on her forehead from light shining thru her hair looks great and the backlighting adds even more depth. The bonesaw looks a little rushed -the outline might be a bit too purple and shes barely holding on to it. I'd really like to see some stuff from you w/ less influence from Japanese art. Do something gritty and realistic once for the hell of it, whadya say? I'll keep an eye out. Good piece.

the arm with the bonesaw was re-drawn about 20 times , needless to say it looked more detailed the first

Violent Encounter Violent Encounter

Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

Good news

I really like this. You've always done well w/ colors and lighting. The shiny scales and highlighting on the hillbilly's muscles and on the purple eye socket are a lot of fun to look at. Great action pose and perspective and very nice use of blue. I especially like the thin drip lines of orange blood on the swamp creature's (or damn two legged two armed fish / man type entity being) forehead and the blue on hill William's fingers. I probably know someone related to this guy...

Vexed Pegasus Anthro Vexed Pegasus Anthro

Rated 4.5 / 5 stars


This is great. I love the action pose, the facial expression, the looming wing in the foreground which almost acts as a shield to help focus your gaze on Pegasus and his long brushed and conditioned locks of hair from his windblown tail and mane. I particularly like the way you drew the mouth and the eyes and the tail keep grabbing my attention. Very nice job w/ the tail. Also, there's no question this horse is vexed. You definitely succeeded in showing that in the brow, even though the lines and shading are fairly subtle. The only thing that could be altered is the midsection. His chest sort of molds into his waist, where you could show the twisting of the abdomen a little more. Also, I'll mention the knees and upperlegs are a little odd (even for a horse), which you might want to look at if you end up drawing this type of creature again.

Yeah, see, I went to school for animation, so I often would think about things in motion.

The trouble was that for a "still" sometimes stuff in motion doesn't make for a good composition. If you've ever seen still images of animation, the in-between photos will look weird if they were just presented as a still, but when put together, they move.

It was something I realized when I was reading books about how to draw comics, and they pointed this out all the time!

I worked at "Top Cow" (Image Comics) afew years ago.
