“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

SNIPER_commission


No time to talk. Busy with new stuff. I'll post some of it later. Sorry that I'm a week behind with posts. Apologies for not being more regular. See you all later!

Oh, wait - when you get a free minute, check out how awesome this Harley Quinn is that Lauren did. Ooooh, cool. Okay, bye!

Eric, first, thanks for pointing out Lauren's HQ, I think she captured the character perfectly.

As for the Sniper commission, Wow. Great composition. I love the way you have the curve of the wolf's back echo the line of the hill and the balance you strike by juxtaposing the up sweep of the Sniper's cape against the bowing of the wolf's head. Also the strong verticality of the trees expertly draws the veiwer's gaze up from the dark figure of the wolf in the foreground to the Sniper.

I can't wait to see what you do with The Bride from Kill Bill.

Hmm, not to be a smartass but I think it's done in a Metal Gear Solid style because that's an image of Sniper Wolf from...Metal Gear Solid :P

I'd just like to say for the record that Jumpstreet is a troublemaker.
