Breakdancing music video?

I was in Best Buy the other day, and on all of the display monitors there was what appeared to be a music video that showed all these ghetto folk breakdancing, and then scoffing at a Goth crowd that passed by. Then all the Goths approached them and then both the groups started breakdancing. There we...

Hm, can't say I've really encountered that myself. I've written stories because I had intense emotions, but that's about the extent of it. I have experienced emotional attachments to characters I've created, though. It's really amazing to start something off and then have it sort of shape itself as ...

Catching up on old "Classics": Natural Born Killer

Ok, I don't usually consider myself a dense person, but I have to admit that I didn't really pick up on the "brilliance" I've heard credited to Natural Born Killers. I can handle the gruesome and disturbing just fine. With this film, however, it seemed like Oliver Stone was using them as a tool to c...

Man, this is like seeing a forest fire. Such a waste of a beautiful thing.


I love how the pirate in the very last panel reminds me of Max Payne.

It was probably just my first glance, but the arms on that last portrait seemed disconnected. Maybe it's because of the contrasting levels of detail between them and the face.

Anyhow, fantastic work. Keep posting!

These pieces are grandtastic; excellent representation of emotion. I hope I'll see your really intense "Have now moved on and things are going well for me" emotional self-portrait.

My selfish fear has always been of dangers to the eyes. It has just been engrained into me since childhood, for some reason I always felt horrible thinking about anything happening to my vision-balls, whether it be a needle in the eye or the whole thing popping out when I sneeze. Maybe it was becaus...

I think they do subtley affect the reader's interpretation of your posts. I used to use this: http://www.maniac-frog.no-ip.com/av/2-50.gif But the expression of the face looked sarcastic/irritated, and I primarily use forums for talking with artists. So I sort of made sure that from that point on I ...

Yeah, he's looking pretty bored, which works well in establishing a certain mood for the piece, but like the others suggested if that's your intention it might be better clarified with a hand raised to the mouth or.... actually, that's all I can think of.

Awesome picture!

I agree with the first post: if you were going to spend more time on this, it would probably turn out more atmospheric to have little areas of floating dust and sediment in the lagoon. But this piece is outstanding regardless.

Thanks :D Contrary to what the title suggests, I think I'm just going to leave this as Orson the Ninja's story in its entirety. My problem before was that I became too ambitious with ideas for stories and wound up writing comic ideas that would demand hundreds of pages to do justice. So now I'm just...
