“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

BOY OF HELL_commission
This is an image done for a commission. I'll upload the multiple passes I did before I settled on this one. I like the other versions better in little patches, but over all I liked this one because of Abe. I mean, I like the Hellboy part of the image, but Abe sells it for me. More specifically, his rib cage. Yes... I know I'm stupid.
And speaking of stupid, has anyone recognized how absolutely overbearing my sig has become these days? It's like this huge, obvious, obnoxious, egotistical stop sign in the middle of all my art work, yeah?
"Ooooh, look at me. I'm Eric Canete and I drew this picture. Isn't my signature awesome? Isn't it smart how there's a cirlce with the first letter of my name in it? Aren't *I* full of awesome?!"
In fact, you are not awesome. You are full of douche. Congrats, Eric.
