“Today, in our field, there is so much talent and recognition that we are reaching a saturation point. An artist should no longer strive only for breathtaking craftsmanship; he should, instead, try to help us live better, either by dressing the wounds that are constantly being opened by society, or by offering solutions to get us out of the mess we’re in…But it’s going to be difficult and we have a lot of work to do.” - Jean 'Moebius' Giraud

Antonio Santamaria said...

Eric, mighty.... Style apart (I love it) this touch of colour over the blue pencil is amazing!!!

Pipocalavera said...

ey...but this would not work because the rope of the bow would not be totally "distensed"(?¿) and the arrow would have not enough strenght to do a nice shot.
Of course the guy will die but not so espectacular as it would seem..I think..but i'm full of crap.

But you're awesome indeed!!

Mark said...

Antonio Santamaria said...

arnie said...

hey, aside from what's already been said, was this hand color, or a digital? i'm still trying to get my digital work to come out smooth, like it was done by hand.

peace out
