brad, your artwork has always impressed me, but these are (in my opinion) the finest examples i've seen so far. you sure can see the progress you are making. not to say that your other work isn't good, but these are fantastic. and i have a friend who is a major reservoir dogs fan - and a mr. white fan in particular - so if you are interested in selling these pieces, let me know.
keep up the great work... now draw some star wars stuff
Thanks a ton for your very kind words. And yes, Star Wars stuff is coming! I'd like focus on Jedi Luke and Lord Vader. I've already bought two very large sheets of black matte board, and I am planning on doing a very nice 'Vader vs. Luke - Silouettes' deal from the scene in ROTJ.
Regarding selling either of these two pieces :
The top piece is far too rough looking to sell; the matte board is a very dark olive shade, not black (like I said, the scan made it look black), and plus some moron in one of my Commercial Arts classes took a mechanical pencil and drew a deep but fine line down the center of the piece from center-to-bottom. It's simply not a sellable piece.
The second piece I think I may hold onto for a while, but because a few people showed interest in buying it - I made 5 prints. One print was given to a friend, one print is in my portfolio, and another just sold for $25 - if your friend wants the one of the two last prints, let me know.
Very impressive work, Brad!
As you said about the second piece, I can see how your shading and line work progressed.
Thanks Michael! Tell me something, do you use prisma colors? If you've mentioned using them before I've forgotten. Oops.
. If you don't use them, definately buy a box off of Ebay and experiment with them - they're pretty expensive, but if you ever sell any of your work they'll pay for themselves. If you already use them - I feel like a big dummy.
