You're too good Brother, your pencil (& inkwork?) are F-ing awesome man. Not being a smart ass here, but I have'nt seen this style of shading & detail, or layouts & anatomy skills sinse my Uncle's work in 78. Out of the blue he would come up with these types of concepts & pencil work'(other than Frazetta, who would wizz sketches up in minutes or so. Big influence sinse 1980.). You've got that raw, powerfull traditional fantasy art technique down wicked, & unfortunately, you don't see it much anymore. Artists today are too busy focusing on perfection, & not concerning moods or themes, only focus on the character. As with this sketch, judging by the many skulls, death appears swift. As powerfull as he looks, a swift death it would be indeed. But, credit's due where credit's due, you got a wicked gift Bro! P.S. Do you have books on your artwork for sale, especially with these works in your gallery!
well, thanks man...appreciate that. yeah, i always responded more to the more direct and immediate approach in fantasy art. things like frazetta's pencil art in the begining of the fire & ice movie or the fact that even though glenn fabry's figure work is stronger and more refined than simon bisley's, i'll almost always prefer bisely's stuff (both are awesome though). but yeah, that kind of almost effortless approach.
i'm trying to work out a summer con schedule. if it pans out, i'll be putting together a book for sale. lots of stuff from here and also a lot of fantasy stuff that no one has seen before. thanks again!
Awesome Bro, be keeping an eye out for that. I have 2 prints fron fire & ice, Julianna on her throne & the sketch of the king, his son & Teegra lying in front of the king at fire keep. Hard to get Frazetta's artbooks in Australia, or Simon Bisley for that matter. I still have Frazetta's 1st 5 artbooks put away in storage, ain't losing those to no bastard!
