“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

LOSH_commission


Still away. A serious art update is pending along with that supposed SCAD report. BTW, somewhere in the comments section of the previous post is a link that will lead to a write-up about several of the students' and attendees' experiences during that weekend. They do a much better job of describing the whole to-do than I ever will. Go find the link, read the students' reports (they're all amazing kids through and through) and laugh at the caveman-ish pictures of me.

As for what I'm up to and what I'm doing to keep me away from posting for over a month - I'm not allowed to speak about it at all. Please be patient.

I'll be back in a couple weeks. Um...looking at my calendar here, it'll be two and a half weeks exactly. Until then, here's a Legion Of Superheroes commission I've been trying to put to bed since I took it at Wizard World: Los Angeles. Thanks for waiting, Raymond. This will be sent out to you by this weekend. And thanks for those of you who still visit and haven't given up on my poor lil' blog.

Two weeks, four days. Start the timer.

Either I'm seeing green in your entry, or you're giving readers a hint as to what you're doing. As for the drawing...

Cool angle, awesomely-rendered characters...heck, even the floor looks spectacular!

Your work is looking great as usual, Eric. I think I'm starting to look forward to your work more than any other artist now. WTF!!! It's not really a surprise since every time you post your work is dynamic, exciting, creative, and overall amazing. Okay, enough fanboy from me. Keep it coming, man!

Great ink... I love this "line"...

spaceJASE said...

While waiting for a new post I picked up the collected "Iron Man: Enter the Mandarin" Good stuff!

One of my coworkers saw it and the only thing he said was: "Funny how that green guy always has the same expression on his face. Not much talent here..."

He's got years of experience that make him the best kind of critic cuz he "knows good art" when he sees it... sound like anyone else we know from past posts on this here Canete blog?

*sigh* They're everywhere.

Well I won't bring my comics in to work anymore.

gdeo said...
