Love the style, and the presence behind the characters just makes me want to learn even more on who they are and what stories they have!

Hahaha, - Smogface. Cool.
Bobby doesn't need more than his hairdo to make him look like a superhero. Well done.

Your style (in this piece) could be a mix of moebius and simon bisley. Nice.

Love your painting style... I notice people have mentioned both Ashley Wood and Phil Hale - pretty much my two favourite artists ever... and your work does remind me of theirs, too, but with it's own distinct, quirky style.

Found your gallery via the dA you got today - congratulations on that! :) You have to go on my watchlist now.

Hale is incredible! :D I've got a book with an interview from him in, and his way of thinking about art is incredibly strict and punishing... he believes in the integrity of the line, and thinks digital painting is cheating, and... things... which just makes me more impressed with him! Because his working theories are so harsh, his practises must follow - he's probably the bravest painter I've ever heard of.

I'm such a terrible fangirl of his. One day I wanna save up and buy one of his paintings for me wall! :bucktooth:

Is that interview you read in the "Masters of Fantasy" artbook or somthing? cause I've only been able to find one written statement about him, I'm borrowed the book "Double Memory" (Rick Berry & Phil Hale) and I have the book "Goad" and the "Mocking Bird" books but that interview in that one book is the only interview style I'm seen.

Hale IS incredible!

I was fortunat to see one of his paintings in person at this year's San Diego Con. Insane, I would diff love to have one of his originals as well. I know a collecter that owns about 6 or so of his paints, sooo I'm like "WHAAT?!?"

Thats great to run into another Hale fan.....

You should look into Jeffery Jones, Kent Williams, George Pratt aswell....

Oooh, I shall check those guys out! Thanks for the heads up! :)

Yeah, the book I own is called "Fantasy Art Masters"... it's a nice little hardback that a family member got me for Christmas one year. Some of the art in there really isn't to my taste, but it has three or four pages of Phil Hale stuff plus the interview, and that on it's own makes the book worth reading! :)

We Hale fans are few and far between, but we all have exceptionally good taste, I think! XD

Can't wait to see more of your work, btw - I love your paintings so much, they have such a lot of character. Pretty much ideal sort of art, right here, and everything I aspire to do myself. :D

Waow, this is incredible! :D The rich and rustic, shadowed colours remind me of old fair-ground and circus signs and their posters :)! I just love the subject matter and your style! The faces are very creepy, and I love the smoke coming up out of his back, it looks like old style illustration :)
Wonderful work! ^^ Keep up the fantastic stuff :)
