You rock HARD! :afro1:
I want to be hard on your stuff, but I can't, I like it.
Solid work! I second whoever said great style...
"Live each day like you will die tommorow, and dream like you will live forever..."
Amazing work man. You have a very strong style and you look very confident with it! Keep up the great work and keep posting these.
Really great pieces, welcome to the boards btw .
An artist cannot fail, it is a success to be one.
The environments are way cool! Welcome , and keep posting.
There was much rejoicing in the realm of the Harvest Gods when man created the beer, light could not penetrate.
WOW!! Those are wonderful! I hate to be a fanboy, but your style just nails what I like. You've got to hook up with a crew and do a short...or long animation!
Damn cool Danny! Great stuff on your website too!!!
We now return you to Bullit already in progress...
this isn't evil_dan. Evil dan his hosting yipper's art work.
two seperate artists. two amazing artists.
awsome stuff- reminds of a little book called "brooklyn dreams" I read years ago-I forget the artists name unfortunatley...maybe yer him! I love the style and the execution is really exciting...is that gentle enough?
These all rock so much I want to steal them and make em in 3D !!!! Great characters all of em.
Great stuff Yip! BTW this is not me lol. I'm just hosting till he gets his webspace working again.
wow, this is insanity! i never thought i'd be able to get such a generous response from so many different artists. it's very validating to know that i'm doing something right. thank you all for your kind words. i'll try to post more work soon.
hey chief, let's talk why not? yo punk, thanks to you, evil dan and tyboogie for motivating me to upgrade my lurker status. im doing this for all the unrepresented asian brothers and sisters especially ti hua chang. he should get a cushy nbc anchor man's chair instead of being the travelling chinaman field reporter. ah sol...
thanks for checking out my post. the buildings were fun to draw, i was trying out a different approach at the time so it was nice to experiment. growing up in the urban jungle makes for great reference of ol' school tenement buildings. my landlord told me that the place i'm at dates back to the early 1900's. dig that!
who doesn't remember waking up early on those saturday mornings sitting in front of the tube for another dose of cartoon bliss? that stuff was always the best and is a constant source of inspiration even today. of course it helps to not have a life and just camp out next to the television. long live chuck jones cartoons!
Wizard of KOZ,
heheh, gingerly always real ginger. the punk guy getting arrested is something i worked on recently. i wanted to do something minimal and graphic, and at the same time suggest a narrative. hopefully it makes for a much more interesting image instead of just a study in technique.
and then the witchdoctor, he told me what to do, he said that ooh eeh ooh ahah, ting tang wallawallabingbang. thank you for looking at my post. :chug:
flavalicious without the unecessary calories. thats a good steady diet of nothing.
wow, thanks for posting on my thread! your artwork is wonderful and so personally expressive. i hope that one day i can develop the ambition and ability which you so naturally communicate in you art. i read your comments on jon fosters thread about self doubt and feeling lost as an artist sometimes. it must be something universal that we all experience from time to time. but seeing all the great work on forums like these and hearing other artists voice their concerns is always a great motivator to keep on drawing. thank you again.
what's that quote from norman rockwell, something about," when a painting is going badly put a dog somewhere in the composition, if it still looks bad put a bandage on the dogs paw." that always makes me laugh. well in my book, if all else fails make it look energetic and stylish. at least it'll look pretty. btw, dm fan?
hey benni, thanks for looking at my work. i will try to post more once webhost fixes some of the gaps in service. damn verizon, can't believe im paying for this...uhg...!
tyler! whats's goin on bro? yeah i decided to come out from under my rock for a visit.
hey, our conversation last time about technique vs design really got me thinking. i never realized it before but i do tend to rely more on technique and style as a way to compensate for lack of design sometimes. i'll try to be more mindful of that now. thanx for checking up.
hot diggity dang...!
we are ready to rock steady. someone on these boards has the quote," so much style but no substance, so much substance but no style" hopefully i won't fall victim to either extreme. always a delicate balance.
glad to hear you like what i posted. when's your site going up?
great name! "Live each day like you will die tommorow, and dream like you will live forever..." whats that from? sounds familiar but i can't quite place it, brain fart...
hey thanks for your comments. you guys are doing great work on the daily sketch group. you deserve props for putting it together. big ups to you and everyone else involved with dsg. im practicing my speed painting so hopfully i can join you all soon. thanks for checking up on this thread too. evil-dan and me have been friends since high school. buy him enough beers and he'll show you some fancy two steppin' to the tune of tiny dancer.
sup sev! i appreciate the welcome. there's so much great work on these boards. i've been lurking for well over a year before i was brave enough to post after some subtle motivation from friends:
howdy, environments are particularly challenging but these were fun to draw because it was a rather personal project. btw, love your website. fantastic concepts!
animation, wow, that sounds involved. i've done some animated gifs that go on for a bit in imageready but never a short. maybe in the future, it certainly isnt something i would rule out. thanks for the suggestion and comments, makes me want to draw!
hi Chad, danny and me are two separate people, though it is rumored that we were spawn from the same seed, if that's any indication. for anyone who hasn't witnessed danny/evil_dan's artwork, head on over here: http://st-hilaire.net/
hey John, i remember brookyln dreams from a few years back. cool diverse looking cartoon approach. the mini paperback format made it even cooler to thumb through.
here's hoping were talking about the same thing:
theft is punishable by decapitation after chinese water torture. drip drip. i was in the process of building some of the characters in lightwave but i've held off on completing that project for the time being. H.A.D.D.
Danny, eh, i talk to you everyday. what else is there left to say :chug:
wow, that took me an hour and a half to write up, it doesn't help that i still use the grade school hunt and peck approach while typing. like a dang igit on crack trying to write shakespeare with two fingers. phew, gotta go outside and get some air. thank you all once again for commenting on this thread. have a good one...!
edit, the hyper links i posted don't seem to be working. copying and pasting them seems to go well though. not sure what i did wrong, i'm still new to posting. damnitall
ahhh~~ I love them!
yo man, you're already there. your work shows great polish, and i know you will go far with it. this is a great community we have here, and i think artists generally go through the same things wrestling the creative process, and its nice to know you're not alone. i also think we are very lucky to live in times like these where communication between artists is conviently on a worldwide level. i know i've met a myriad of artists that i used to idolize(still do) on these forums, and its always refreshing to know that they are generally warm and friendly people who share a very similar lifestyle, and are equally happy to know you're livin' it as well. kudos to you, and i look forward to seeing your future posts.-c36
Yap!Those are excellent,Yipper!
Hope we can see more soon.
