I don't know if you'd know, but how do you get splats like in the top left corner. This is probably a stupid question, but I can't really seem to find any non-digital tutorials.

Take the color of choice and make it more luiquid with water and then draw it on the paper. Then blow (maybe with a straw) a bit or let the colored water drop fall from a high point. Just watch out that you don't color your room.

I've always been amazed with how flat and smooth your coloring is in traditional media. I've also really admired the style of your work. I suppose I could best describe it as warped, free, and incredibly exaggerated. It's more or less the style I've always been trying to perfect since I was a child. Your work is definitely at least first or second in my little list I keep of artistic influences, and I've envied your coloring since I found your work back in like, January.

Keep up the good work, man. I really appreciate your amazing comic work that you put on here.

Wow. That's amazingly gruesome. I really like that face on the right. It reminds me a bit of those old drawings of St. Anthony being terrorized by demons.

Now THAT's losing your mind :psychotic: definetily looks like the sort of crazy stuff you'd expect to see on a CD cover, and it reminds me of a doodle I did on school worksheet of a character whose brains were blasting out like a mushroom cloud (a cartoon classic ;)) in rage over the work I had to do...the teacher after marking it actually wroote a little compliment next to it about my creativity :XD:

Some teachers reacted adversely to mine too - goes to show how different the appeal of going to a certain class can be depending on the teacher - I had some teachers that loved my drawings (though they would still tell me to focus on my work ;)) and I had others who would literally snatch the paper, tear it up and make me do it again :pissed: some teachers just have no appreciation for creativity :no:
