Love the reds, very post apocalyptic and gruesome
That crit I mentioned on twitter was to watch the stiff figures, they don't feel horribly fluid and I feel perhaps that's sucking out some of the energy. But, all in all it's quite cool. That's the sort of packaging I like to see!
Wow there is some really twisted stuff here...it's fantastic! Keep it coming!
You have really nice designs there. I see a lot of Wayne Barlowe's influence, mainly in the Pazuzu pic. Keep posting more!
wow nice stuff man, i like the "currupted"
my subconscious does not stop begging my conscious to draw.
hmm does that mean im a slave to my subconscious?
at least it doesnt beg for crack. ha.
Here's the last of anything to post for a few months probably.
The death metal band Six Feet Under really kept me busy last year with apparel as well as a DVD cover. Very thankful for that.
I'll also be doing their next album cover, but that is a long way off.
Damn cool seeing so much of your work in one big CA thread dude. I'd tell you to draw something cheerful, but you work full time with me on art that couldn't be more opposite than this! Keep painting them intestines buddy!
There's a lot of bands out there.
As long as someone isn't trying to be a cheap-ass, I consider all bands equal and will work with anyone, with any level of "fame". I get just as excited about working with all of them even if they have only 5 fans.

No, unfortunately it is indeed all about the blind email. Going to bands that you think might be a good fit for your artwork and treating it like any job interview/cover letter. You are trying to introduce someone to your art and convince them that they need you for their products.
It's not easy, I mail things out all year long and never hear from hardly anyone. Then out of the blue I'll hear from someone I wrote ages ago. Bands are really bad about writing back. But once you get a client that really likes your work, it can be worth it's weight in gold. Six Feet Under, for example, is a band I obviously have a very consistent working relationship with. He loves my work and I love working with him...much better strengthening that bond than working with a hundred other bands.
Great works, the first one drew my attention the most. I love it.

That's just amazing. That's gonna be my new wallpaper. Awesome!
This last one is great on so many levels! Good job.
your work creeps me out, scares the living crap out of me, and makes me want to be better than you.... I love you sir, love you.... The Lord of abominations is especially inspring. Over the top gore and horror are not my personal strengths but I hope you dont mind me using you as a point of reference haha. Cant wait to see more work
Awesome artwork you reminded me how much i love themes and things like this.
New album art for the latest from Behold! The Monolith, "Defender, Redeemist".
The characters depicted here are "The Redeemist" (top) and "The Desolizator" (bottom), both of which are featured heavily in the lyrics to this concept album.

Actually, I used to intentionally blur the edges. Was an old technique that I learned back when I was a wee-photoshop-lad. Over time, I have been trying to develop a technique in photoshop that is very "anti-photoshop". By that, I mean I try to make it look as painted as possible (one-layer painting, hard edge brushes, very few - if any - PS-tools like blur, dodge/burn etc.
I personally think it has been a good choice, so I appreciate that you called that out.
