Wow, this is really an inspiring piece. The more I see of your work, the more I like! Even though it's sketchy, I really like the mood here. In fact, I believe the sketchiness adds to the overall atmosphere. Again, it's inspiring.
hells to the yea! when i saw the thumbnail..i was like bitchen! a frazetta tribute piece...rest in peace frank!great tribute piece...his death has rocked the artworld! i cant see how much art gets released by his family now that the masters gone!
yea!im more shocked that the immortal frank is dead...got real drunk last monday...but i feel his images are more family to me than the real life pawns i find in my physical realm..i search for people with souls everyday..but your art was not a lameass attempt at franks style..it kicked ass..you are able to do so many styles!!i dont ever return comments to people i dont admire extremely...looks like you got some big boots to fill nowthat franks gone...lol!anyhoo!great piece bro..you fuckin rock!
Hah, thanks. I appreciate the sentiments. It's definitely interesting to try on different styles, and I feel like I learn a lot when I do that. Perhaps at the cost of developing my own style. But then I look around and there are all these amazing artists. Can't think like that though, of course. But it's good motivation to get better. I feel like in my own art I'm always seeking some kind of elusive vision.
..sounds so familiar...i am always seeking new styles..so much so..i cant nail down a stylei think i just have so many influences these days and enjoy sculpture painting and drawing not to mention teaching kids and inspiring my friends.......so i really understand this elusive vision...maybe if u just work from photos ,life and your own imagination for a while u will strictly be working from your own vision..and all this influence from your masters will come to rest like a great cosmic soup and you will be rocking a style all your own that you can enjoy and finally find rest..from your vision quest.....yes be of great cheer! these warmer days are quite a relief!..never change your avatar its the sh*t! peace-out bro!
Thanks, Jasin! I've been exploring a different approach lately where I start things off as a sketch, then move quickly to paint basic forms, then back to line art again to refine before the final paint. Hopefully it does keep things loose.
