Hey all, my first day here, thought i'd post a few drawings.
all but the last one(ink wash) were done with colored pencils.
I have some larger versions of these, but i don't have them on the web yet...maybe i'll post them if i get a request or two.

Edited....sorry about the large file size. changed them to links with descriptions so you can skip the uninteresting ones.

Whoa, that's utterly l33t ;)

One thing though, can you keep the images small (in file size)? Because it takes two minutes for me just to see one image (they're around 200k, I got a 28k modem with unstable connection)

Dark and brooding. Very emotive. I agree with the size comment though. You could get these images a lot bigger with smaller file sizes (Adobe ImageReady). The Giger one is great, but could use more contrasting colours in it, give it more of a foreboding feel. The hanging man is great too. Excelent perspective, maybe just dirty up the lines on the chain, they seem a bit too clean and uniform.
I like your stuff, keep posting :thumbsup:

Sorry about the file sizes guys...i uploaded some smaller versions...around 20-50kb in size.

I also uploaded what will be the menus for the flash site im working on right now. tell me what you think.
also, _a_, may i suggest putting some sort of close button on your website, because i had to End Task just to close them. you might also want to think about some text telling where your links go. other than that, it's incredible. love your artwork.

here's my Main menu...the links will be inside the beams of light.

here's the menu for the subpages, that will be on the right side of each screen.

any suggestions will be helpful.

Wow, thats going to be one far out web site! excelent idea. about the web site, there is a close button, and the links do have text, or are you talking about the buttons on the navigation wheel?

hmm,i'm curious. What browser are you using, because your task bar should not show up at all. The page main page should launch in a full-screen window with no window borders or taskbar or titlebar, and the taskbar should not popup while on that page either (nifty javascript).

Im using IE 6.
i hate netscape with a blood red passion. A true webdesigner's worst nightmare. All disks containing Netscrape software should be shot into the sun.
apologies to all the Netscrape users.
