“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

SAMURAI & DRAGON_commission
I'll get to a proper update with all the images of the commissions I did while I was at HEROESCON this past weekend, as well as some cool things that happened during our four day stay. But for now here's a colored commission piece I did for a guy who picked it up at the show. The image is done with COPIC markers with Pitt Artist Pens for some of the contour and outlines.
Also, here's something I learned in doing the image: Chinese dragons have five claws. Japanese ones have three.
Now, I don't know if that's at all true. JON TSUEI is the one who busted out that little factoid. But please keep in mind, Jon also comes into my house, switches all my toilet paper around so it dispenses the wrong way, and eats my cereal. What I'm saying is, take all what I've just said with a certain grain of salt and please consider the source.
More later. For now - enjoy.
