this kinda just blew my mind.... seeing a movie poster I made on tv, as they interviewed the director (my cousin)

This is a color sketch I just finished for a mural I'm painting in Pittsburgh. It feels good to actually get paid to do this for a change.
Looks good, Gene. I'd suggest playing with the perspective a little so that the buildings rise higher into the sky. Could make the city come across a little more majestic.
I just went and saw "How to Train Your Dragon". Really great and fun movie.
Thanks for the kind words, guys. I really appreciate it. Here's a second sketch I just finished. I'm doing two of these murals, and these were the two ideas the client wanted to see developed more fully.

Works really well.
Answer to End of Time:
I lived in Belgium for many years and I still go there to visit my family, so every time I am there I read French and Belgian comics.
The style is very different from the one in Anglophone graphic novels. Sure there are a few wonderful things in France and Belgium ( it is well known that the Art School in these countries is a famous one and this is for a good reason!)
I would love to work with French artists. The problem is that many of them like to write their own scripts. The result is that (in some cases-not always!) the story is not as beautiful as you'd expect it to be when you see the art, BUT you keep reading and you are fascinated because of the huge quality of the art.
Honestly, some French comics are like classic paintings, they are simply FABULOUS!! So, you can forget the poor quality of the story...(which is not BAD usually. BUT it could be better!)
yeah, art is everything in French and Belgian comics... because for instance the Meta Barons, as famous as it is, is really just ripping off Dune in a half-assed manner...
but it looks gorgeous.
I went and made a webcomic...
To End of the Time:
Exactly, I agree with you! I checked your comic, it's awesome!
