couple new things, set design and random caca. The super hero one inspired by the recent marko marvel kickass illustrations.
I'm really liking the way this forum is turning out btw.
Added some recent sketches i coloured.

Poor Wolverine !
very nice work.

Why have I not seen your work before. Those superheros are lovely! Super stuff dude.
I'm really digging the exaggerations and the colors.
The one thing that bothers me in the first piece is his right leg (below his knee) seems too skinny.
Keep it up and post some more!
There is nothing wrong with using a photo to help you see things.
No one complains about life drawing,
so take a photo.
its easy, and will improve your piece greatly."
the spider mans really reminds me of cheeks stuff. I love the colours in the first painting. Really lose feel, and looks like an economical use of strokes. excellent work. can't wait to see more!
amazing work for the Marvel one....good style and mood....give us some more!
An excellent work in a very mastered style.
Personally, I have a fondness for the third one which is a delightful personal interpretation of super heros.
Haha. If I were a superhero i'd beat the crap out of Wolverine myself for being so over-saturated. Great Job on all works!
Nice work alex, but like I told you, the lensflares would help out the composition so much better . I especially enjoy the superheros.
Interceptor/jake & maxe - thanks fellas, it just happened to be wolv in the middle.. no reason.
I was ink - true enough you're right, thanks!
MikeC - thanks, and yeah i did go for the pastel-ish look. I find it more fun to work with color wise.. it makes you think about your next brush move haha. And yes, Marko had a huge influence on me for the heros, it was the first time i had tried to do anything marvel related.
oalexis - thanks, i've seen some of cheeks stuff before, alot of people at school have his stuff laying around. I think his poses are great indeed.
derf - thanks, i don't know when i'll be putting any more work up.. schools taking some time and we're working on films and such. Also been busy with 3D. will have to see!
AgAtA - hey! thanks for the compliments, i'm glad you liked it. I love your work! i've seen some of it recently.
Nicko/TheGnoll - thanks guys, and indeed i added some years to batman haha.
endregan - thanks you sicko, i was wondering if you could give me some tutorials on how to make lensflares at school.... or at your place... haha (are you coming to the meeting next weekend?)
I like your environments, and your ocean stuff. I like your style too,keep up the good work.
yeah, lovin the superhero one.
great colors in there.
the others are nice too, but that one really stands out.
great stuff! love the colors and value relationships, mm mm tasty
These are great man, the super hero piece is great. I think you curving batman's cape all the way to a straight line down the left bottom corner frames it weird, I'd just throw it right off the border. Nice work!
nice style. post some more plzkthx
I like those pastel seascapes, myself. They feel like the seaside to me. Nuff said on the superhero stuff - on point!
Have you guys checked out Alex's website? Tight stuff there, too.
Though I would encourage you, Alex, to keep at the 2-D BIG TIME. It looks like the 2-D is your most raw, more impassioned form of expression. The lines and the energy they represent look like they come from the heart.
Thanks for sharing!
..damn so many replies hah, thanks for the comments.
Justin - yeah my friends said the same haha, and for the set design i tried to make it all blend together so i had to lower the saturation on the last one. perhaps it was a bad move.. thanks for the notice!
Ulie/mwillustration/openanewworld/cotron - you guys are too nice!! (thanks tho)
strych9ine - I completely agree with you 100%, indeed one of my bad habbits is to paint over my quick sketches and forget to "re-compose" my elements afterwards...and im also terrible at fixing stuff. i always kinda throw it in the basket and move on. Good eye! thanks!
character/kaktuzlime - thanks fellas
Pixel8 - thanks bud, apreciate. As for the 3D part i really have to update my site, those were my first models back when i started learning maya and i got around getting alot better at it. I've been working on alot of different projects animation/short film wise and planning stuff out. So whenever i got time ill make my 3D section worth the bandwidth haha.
awesome...i enjoy your sense of palette. and the last image got cool dynamic to it....and your HULK got no pants LOL..
Wicked. I love the "Bag head" look to spidey.
lol all that comic dudes are against wolverine... poor guy but it seems he is has a kind of madness....
very nice work so far!
Yes, very nice color work. post more man.

love your style
Hey these are really good! I'm feeling the BG in the first one. Maybe this was mentioned already, but the Hulk's anatomy is a little quesionable. Great work. Post more!
