I do like the moody piece that you started with. Throw some smoke in the background like a darkened alley, be pretty darn tight. But I like how on these pieces, your consistantly shifting the camera angles and playing around with the approach. The detail on the bricks is mind numbing!

Mr. Hawthorne said...

I've seen your life drawings and comic art. You're not in anyone's dust, my good man ;)

Thanks!

Holy hell, I love that first sketch!

Mr. Hawthorne said...

Steve - Cool. I'll post more soon. Thank!

Mitch - Yeah, I really wanted to do that one. Just felt like it was something I'd seen before. Not sure why...

Anyway, thanks!
