this is the kinda stuff i really envy, very simple scenes but well executed. for the life of me, i cant get stuff like 'rain'...'clouds'....'DDT showers' actually looking like..... 'rain'...'clouds'....'acid burns'.......

keep it in deviations, i think that anything you're unsure about placing in scraps is better kept in deviations.... i doubt there's really any way to "taint" your portfolio and there might be a person -like me- that might find a special affinity for it

it seems like so long since i actually updated a hand-drawn picture. almost all the stuff i do is in photoshop now, which gives me such color and error forgiveness. but what it takes away are the little idiosyncrasies thats in natural drawing, little color differences in paint, a broken edge in the pencil. i miss those little effects... i'm trying to bring back those natural errors through filters and stuff but its not the same. now everything looks like i followed a coloring page.....

the point being, i dont know if i could replicate stuff like this. i never had instruction so i dont know all the cool techniques of light and shadow with pens and paints

it's not that different. you have most of the same tools in real life. on paper what you do is more permanent, but, some things do come easier like shading and coloring (for me). everyone needs to mix up their style of prefered art once in a while. recently i have not been able to stop fwaping my brush and splattering paint everywhere. no filter in ps can do that! on the other end of the spectrum, i use ps to clean up a lot of my drawings because, after being scanned they look too grainy and rough. and on this piece, i isolated a lot of the blue background and blurred it. it made the rain look more natural.
i guess we are working at the same problem, from opposite ends. we may meet in the middle somewhere. you never know. :]

hopefully.... i miss traditional drawings, but the options of photoshop (and the money i paid for it) are too compelling....however, with college now - theres alot of free time with pen and paper to get back to basics

it's like the feeling when you're alone on the street on a quiet night and theres a sudden burst of light and in a split second you feel the fear and paranoia that something may harm you. but it's only a car and it drives past. creepy.

When I saw the title, I was scared to click the link for fear that it would be some sort of aquatic fetus.

No! no scraps! I love the suggestion of his face and the white spray at the bottom in contrast to the dark water and figure. Another wonderful picture.
