“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

HOGARTH HUGHES_90 minutes


One of my favorite-est movies EVER! It's gotta be, oh...I dunno...on my Top 10! Go see it if you haven't yet. It's like an old classic tale of a boy and his dog on a grand adventure. Only instead of a dog it's a giant robot. And instead of a boy it's a....um...wait...no that part is still true.

That is amazing. Love the lighting and as always the composition. Great textures as well. That is frigging inspirational.

Yep, agreed. Top, top film and proof that Brad Bird is one of the best visionaries in the business.

Great 90 minute sketch you've given us there!

You stay....I go!

I love this movie. It was an instant classic about halfway through when I saw it in the theater. But for some reason, you have to twist people's arms to watch it... GREAT piece, sir!

OMG you rock!! and you know what really makes you cool as hell, mr. eric?? it's the way you somehow manage to incorporate your siggy into all your drawings in some sort of symbiotic coexistance with the art!

Definitely one of my favorite movies - Your composition is always on point but you've outdone yourself on this one - My favorite so far.

I really enjoy seeing how you frame you work with the Contrast.

"Le géant de fer" in french.
Great movie indeed and fantastic character design !

I like how you included the dent in the head. A lot of artists leave that detail out.

Great movie. One of Vin Diesel's finists roles (he was the voice of the robot)

Oh, my gosh--I got choked up seeing this picture; I love The Iron Giant so much! My number one favorite US animated movie. It's everything US animation should aspire to.

Man, you really made my day!

Oh this movie!!! Alot of my teachers were working on this while I was in school, it's a refresher course everytime I watch it. I like dramatic Canete drawing. This is getting printed at work with nice laser paper and going in the cube.
