Thanks for the comments. I'm very flattered by them.

I feel that you are as good an artist provided you are having fun with the work, learning new stuff and challenging yourself. I can see you are already doing this with your stuff.

In all honesty, there is no really magic or hocus pocus in becoming a good illustrator, it is simply down to practice, been able to take criticism and ultimately, having an honest view of the work.

Yes, I can paint but itís not as half as fun as sitting in front of the TV, with a pad on your lap, relaxing and seeing what happens.

Iím really pleased that you are taking something from the art and I would advise you look as many different artist as possible, try to understand their techniques and adapt them into your style.

I've been influenced by a whole host of artist ranging from Titian to Andrew Wyeth, Norman Rockwell to Bob Peak, Degas to Chuck Close, Alex Raymond to Neal Adams. I could go on all dayÖ

Below is an unfinished illustration I did of Harrison Ford, unfortunately I sat on it and had to start again but it's a good example of layering shade. The image is A5 and was done with a Roting Isograph 0.1

I would prefer all the art I post be appropriate to the site but if I do something Indy related in paint then I will post it.

Iím more that happy to try Indy in manga but I will only do it if you agree to ink and colour it!

My age? Lets put it this way, Iím old enough to have seen Raiders of the Lost Ark on itís original release but still younger than Harrison Ford when he first played the role!!

Comic Book script request

As a bit of fun I'm thinking about doing some short Indiana Jones comic strips.

Anyone got any 3-5 page self contained stories but written in full script.

And I haven't forgotten about the animation... The card looks SUPERB, Junior! Great shades and you've really captured the facial features perfectly. You're a master.

Bet that doesn't surprise anyone! Thanks for the compliment, Robyn. It's been awhile since I've done portraits so Junior is much better than I am. One thing I want to do is draw some pictures of characters from the novels, particularily Jack Shannon.

If I did ever do a pic of Indy & Marion it would depict them a couple of years after the wedding. Marion would be cooking bacon & eggs and Indy would be nearby reading the newspaper with his slippers on. Of course, it would done in a Norman-Rockwell-Saturday-Evening-Post-style.

Yeah, the animation, they were the days!

I think the card is a bit off, I'm not sure why, maybe the eyes but thankyou.

I love Norman Rockwell, this is something I would like to see.

Looks good to me. The only thing with the eyes is that the pupil on page right (Indy's left) is a bit off. If you moved it to page left a tiny fraction (Indy's right) that might solve it...unless Harrison has a 'lazy eye'. As I'm sure you're well aware, getting the eyes right is capital in acheiving the best likeness. Otherwise, I don't see any problem with the eyes at all. You're being too hard on yourself.

Re: the animation. Will get back onto it. Soon, my friend...

Just have to find the time & inspiration! Non-Indy related but here's a couple of Rockwellian things I did many years ago:

Love it. Love Norman Rockwell, he was one of my initial inspirations when I was younger. It was four freedoms, especially the freedom of worship, that had me spellbound.

I think this is a real challenge to all our artists. Indy in the style of Norman Rockwell. I might even have a pop at it myself, sorry Dr Gonzo!!

A quick sketch, I was going to work into it but stopped because I liked the raw passion of it.

Thanks for the comment. There's a lot of fantastic art on the board and would love to see your stuff - so this weekend go and invest in a scanner.

Excellent! Don't worry about comparisions, I found that this board is more interested in letting people express themselves rather than their technical ability.

I imagine if someone was looking to improve their work there's a lot of expertise they can draw on throughout the board.
