“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

ROYALE WITH CHEESE_90 minutes
Okay, another one that I practically did twice. One day, when I have about 300 of these images, I'm going to collect them all in one sketchbook - but before then, I'm going to post all of the images that never made it to completion including the ones that are on the backs of these B&W finished ones.
Nah, that's too ambitious.
And if you're thinking to yourself, "Hey, Eric...I think I've seen these elements in drawings that you've posted in the past, haven't I?" Then you, kind reader, are an aware and astute individual - you get the proverbial 'No-Prize'! I did, indeed, use similar (if not exact) elements in this image as I've used in the past. For example, the playing cards falling through the air are from a Rogue and Gambit image I did a while back. And even before that, I did a Lara Croft image that had her on her knees on a pile of gold coins - this time, obviously I've changed them to poker chips.
Yessir - nothing new or original here in Eric's House of Recycled Ideas. You want something new and cool (well, it's really quite vintage by way of subject matter) go look at Lauren's awesome Shining Voltron Force image! That image is hot like fire. But no Voltron?! C'mon, girl! That's just bein' lazy! Haha!
