Whoa! Creepy and cool! This might actually give me nightmares. lol JK... I hope. hahah
Your pencil work just keeps getting better and better, Danny! Your graphite art is just amazing! I'd love to see you do something a little more "lighter" though. I'm talking about the shading, I'm referring to the subject matter. Your images tend to be kind of dark and gloomy sometimes. I think it would be awesome to see you do something more "fun" or lighthearted. Like some pin-ups or character sketches. I loved the Harley Quinn and Batman image you let me color, it would be cool to see you do more female characters. Maybe in less of a "dire" setting though. heheh
interesting insight, stacy. theres definitely more to me than the gloom n doom stuff. now that my freelance workload has settled down and i'm finding more and more free time(which i guess in not good lol), i've been contemplating lately a major shift in either style or subject matter. or maybe both.
That would be very cool! I'm so excited to see your new stuff!
I mean, don't get me wrong, I love the "dark" stuff you do, it's very gritty and has an awesome ability to evoke an emotional reaction and/or mood from the viewer. But it's great to see some diversity. heheh And nothing wrong with "up-beat" every once in a while. lol I'll bet creating such dark imagery can have an effect on your mood too. A while back I had been commissioned to do three horror/dark images without a break of anything "lighter" in between and I could tell it had an effect on me. lol But then again, I'm a strange duck sometimes.
My favorite part of looking at your stuff is how you get your pencil so mushy and so sharp at the same time. And you don't hide your gesture. God, I love all those little gestural contours that squiggled their way through your drawing.
Haha! I call it sculpting on paper too! That's funny. That's really the closest approximation to a process like that, since you're building with gesture and then pushing it around to create form and then chiseling in hard edges. I'm an artist's artist when it comes to stuff like this. A cool picture is good and all, but technique, for me, is king. Stuff like this is also really rare these days. Did you ever do anything for Verotik?
