Great art there, Unknown!  I can see all sorts of comic book influences in it - Frazetta, Jim Starlin, Paul Gulcacy!

I used to want to be a comic book artist myself and would go to all the conventions.  Did you ever try to get hired by Marvel or DC?

Does this remind anyone of anything... Atlantis maybe?





No kiddin Zodiac! you wanted to draw comics too

No I never did try, did you ever see that book "How to Draw Comics" by Stan Lee And John Buscemi

wow it was great. They had a big Marvel Tryout Book with real Comic board with crop marks and everything, but I chicken out and never even drew anything in it.  I started to draw some of my stories but I just never finished them

Gorgeous painting!

Yeah, I have both books. The "How to" book was what taught me about perspective.  Very valuable!  I am more of a penciller, than an inker, though. I'm pretty quick, too, I love the whole storytelling element you get with comics.  I submitted my work to Marvel and DC years ago (back before I was any good) and assume it ended up in the sludge pile.

These days, the art in comics is so crappy I'm not even interested in getting into it.  All tired old Manganese stuff.

I wanted to be a penciler too, my biggest problem was perspective.

I love your version of Faith, man is she hot!  You can really do likenesses well.

I didn't mind MacFarlane so much as all the crap that came after - all maganese crap.  Comes from Japan.  Cheap, junky, hurried stuff that doesn't know how to set a mood and doesn't even try to be realistic.  And they are doing all the books the same way!

We went from Neal Adams to junk.

I think McFarlin opened the door hes the first one that really broke the traditional comic panel format. Every once in a while people will pick up comics for me to read but It is just not the same.

My favorite comic artists are john Bryne and John Buscema those guys new what they were doing not only were they fantastic artists but they knew how to tell a story with pictures.

Wow.  You are one excellent artist, Unknown.  Are those paintings of Buffy and company or photos?  I hope that making art is part of what you do for a living.

Great work, Unknown, the last one did remind be of Boris, I like the ability to switch styles. I used to draw myself.  Have you ever heard of a guy named Mke Deodato?  Really good at drawing women.  He was one of my influences, he did Wonder Woman back in the 1990's.

I also used to be really into that comic book, "Lady Death."  Ever see it?
