Nice work. Some of them have a kind of John Berkey or Vincent DiFate thing going on, or maybe John Harris. Berkey's concepts are brilliant, but as far as I know, he's never "finished" a painting in his life, so I'm kind of annoyed with the unfinished look of his style. These are better than his stuff, imho, for that reason.
holy wow! totally amazing, as always a pleasure to see your new work, sir! my favs are the 1st and 3rd, others awesome too. best luck with your new project and good luck at microsoft. did you leave Id?
Beautiful! Although the b&w one looks far from finished.
About how long does one of those take?

Good lord, these are fantastic.
Glad that you are doing well. We missed you around here.

very nice! Sweet color combinations on that first piece.
i am definitely getting that feeling of magnificent, breathtaking and awe-inspiring sci-fi from these paintings. I can rarely find this in artwork, movies and music, but when I do it always reminds me of one of the main reasons I want to become an artist, so that I may one day inspire the same feeling in other people. The fact that you are succeding in doing that is a testament to your skill in my opinion.
thanks for sharing!
