An interesting mix of styles and mediums.  Were you influenced by any of the classical artists, or simply comic book artists?

Hi Prentiss

Well, I wasn't exposed to a lot of classical art when I was growing up. But all the art that I did see was undoubtedly influenced by classical art. So I guess the answer is yes. I am not big on modern abstract art... although surrealism  can be cool. I like the early impressionist painters like Monet, Lasotte. I think Goghan is overrated. I have great respect for the rennaisance masters, like Da Vinci and Michaelanglo. I don't know a lot about the Classical period of art although I think Greek and Roman sculptures is, depending upon the period absolutely fabulous. I like the Hudson school here in the americas and the dutch masters for there lighting and realism. I think some of the greatest artists are relatively unknown like Durer and Mucha.

Thanks for asking

Dürer is quite famous but Mucha's claim to fame as an Art Nouveau commercial artist puts him in a "lower" echelon according to the fine art elitist snobs!  Comic and fantasy artists like Mike Kaluta and Quinton Hoover were influenced heavily by Mucha, and Adam Hughes did some nice covers in his style for Alan Moore's "Voodoo" mini-series. 

Exactly right, Uknown; if we want to trace the family tree of influences back we go to paleolithic chalk drawings in caves.

Hi Horus

I absolutely agree that Mucha's infleunce on the art world was tremendous. I don't understand that... about snobbing commercial art. The way I see it, even the great Michaelanglo was a commercial artist, after all he was supposed to get paid for painting the ceiling of the Cisteen Chapel. Although, if memory serves the payments were always late and never in full. Thats what the art world is still like... lol.

Hi Bianca

I have been planning on bring my drafting table downstairs were I can use it, it makes it so much easier to draw... I will see if I can do something with a Mucha flavor, I just love scroll work, etc.

I don't know when I will be able to get it done though... I have been pretty busy lately.

Welcome back Horus.

Thankyou! 

Great sketch, unknown!  Looks like the fine basis for an ink and watercolor rendering.  But I'm not that skinny!  Can't you put some meat on those bones? ;-)

Thanks Horus

Does it look like you? I think I am going to do another one, it's not exactly what I wanted.

Hi, Unk!


I stumbled on this during my 'roamings' over in Italy and I thought of you:

Hi Bianca

Great painting, I love it! It reminds me of a horror/fantasy story I have been meaning to write... The Bearclaw.
