“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

"...BOGEY AT 12 O'CLOCK!"_commission
Dave, sorry I couldn't get this to you at the show. I damn near redrew it all over again today. But after stepping away for lunch, I came back and realized it was okay. Heh. I'll get it to you the next time we meet up, man. Thanks for the patience and understanding.
This is as detailed and 'tech-y' an Iron Man that I'll ever do. I don't know what came over me - I put down one little seam and the next thing you know there's twenty little seams. And a bolt. And and a plate and so on and so on. Ugh. Remind me to never get this ambitious again.
Speaking of detailed and ambitious - has anyone seen the new Toppi book that just came out? Stewart Ng was selling it at his booth this year at SDCC and the thing is ridiculously good. I mean, grandmaster-ly good. I have so much more to learn.
And steal from. Heh.
Oh! I'll give you guys a run down on all the cool shwag (well... cool to me, anyway) I bought/got at this year's show in a little bit. See you tomorrow.
