Great style, man. Say, how do you paint people?

hehe. Just kidding. I like this one allot. Definitely different than your usual stuff. Have you ever tried something in the vein of a Rockwell, something that tells a story? Anyway, great image, as usual

my god man, this is wonderful. i see mucha in it (just the subtle tone changes and beautiful washed out colors. is that mucha?) :] i guess i shouldnt be guessing inspirations 'n all that. it's kind of insulting, but it was the first thing i thought when i looked at it. for what it's worth, more than anything there's pure spooge demon in this image. very very nice.

Well, what else could I possibly add to all these replies ?

Its a very beautiful picture, so soothing and calm. I really like this because I know I could never come to such a result but seeing your great work makes me want to persevere. Thanx for the inspiration

Great work once more !

"Who was it said Wagner isn't nearly as bad as it sounds?"

As much as eveyone else has said what I'd probably say...I think that flower is pretty damn cool

Man, this is really beautiful.

You inspire me, Spooge. Any time I get down and discouraged about a painting or drawing, I look at some of your work and learn something new.

Thanks and keep posting.

What I like best about this one is that it does definitely look like stage lighting to me. Hinted in that peach lighting is a huge painted backdrop of a sunset

way cool as always.

Hmm, everyone seems to like this one... yea! I was wondering if anyone would, being a little different. I am glad that it has obvious signs of “brushstokes” and flatness here and there (otherwise known as sketchiness or unfinished) but it is now not bothering as many people. That must mean I am getting better.

Sporq, from the middle values out, especially if you are starting or are unsure of your subject. You can go darker and lighter later only if you need to.

I have been looking at Mucha a lot lately, but not the painting as much as the drawing. Interesting that seeped in! I think the Sargent influence will always be there, it’s part of my brain now.

Napalm, not plans for a book, the thought never occurred. I am not good enough yet. If it happens, maybe later on. I have a lot of work yet to do. Then the world will only be cluttered up with one book of mine.

Light, choose paintbucket tool, shift click on the gray window color, voila.

Wyatt, she’s crazy, drugged, full of lust and is going to die. Not that unusual, really.

Micke, thanks for the cartoon! I have really learned a lot from your work, including things like this. I make things way too complex as part of my nature. It seems your natural bent is to simplify. This cartoon is way beyond me.

MJM, I appreciate the idea. I think you are right when you say that I am doing things that look old mastery. I hope it is not only the sepia tone I would have to think about how to do some extreme perspectives before I would jump in. They seem to dominate the image so much, and they seem to be abused in comics quite a bit. I think the subject would have to suggest it first. hmmm, they are quite prevalent in film, and my stuff looks to much like cinematography sometimes... I will think more about it.

Aliasmoze, I have been trying to get more narrative in my sketches here, with different degrees of success, but it requires so much planning. whine whine. I like spontaneity a lot to.

Spooge...it is great...You either inspire us to do better, or make us want to pack everything up and quit.

Spooge,

Both Beautiful and Haunting. It looks as though she's on her way back from hearing news of her loved one's demise and perhaps contemplating her own, or possibly in a dream-like trance and she has wandered off into an enchanted forest. Beautiful stuff man! After being a fan of your Myth and Marathon stuff, I really enjoy seeing these morsels!
