I'm nearly done with this piece. Let's see if photo embedding works again...

Happy I can finally share one of the pieces I worked on earlier this year - a cover illustration for In Human Form's upcoming album "III":

Wow, very good. I'm especially impressed with how you managed to localize the shadows and make them harsh yet realistic. It's a talent I'm still developing. [ATTACH=CONFIG]480[/ATTACH] [ATTACH=CONFIG]481[/ATTACH] These were two 'promo posters' I made for the Teen Titans story I did.

Very nice. The pinky looks a little strange and the hips are odd but otherwise it's great. I've always envied people who can draw in ink, I've not always had so much success with it. Though I did in a moment of desperation draw on a set of hotel post-it notes with a pen when I didn't bring my drawing pad along. They were OK, but a bit rough. [ATTACH=CONFIG]500[/ATTACH]Another story one. [ATTACH=CONFIG]501[/ATTACH] An odd juxtaposition of humor and death...these separate drawings aren't from the same series. The guy on the left is Gluttony the Homunculus from FMA Brotherhood.

sticking with the metal theme' date=' here's a new time lapse painting from me
Wow, I did not know that these were actual paintings. That gets a lot of extra credit from me. I did notice that you didn't sketch anything, not even the bodies of your two figures. I have to admit, that got my attention. I almost always have to sketch in order to get a form down pat, but yours was spot on from the get-go. It's also impressive given that you were working with a small canvas because there's less room for error.

Hey thank you very much for the compliment. I do actualy do these with acrylic paint on canvas. However I do make the general outline of the bodies. If you look closely you can actualy see some pink lines for the bodies. (usualy I use pencil, but this time the background was black so had to use a very metal color pink haha). I'm still in a learning process with these paintings. Before I was only doing pencil drawings, but this is more fun but hard to get the colors right and the blending :/ I'm trying though, and hopefuly each painting will be better. thanks again mate for the nice comment:)

As you can see I'm essentially restricted to pencil right now. I've tried to use colored pencils, but with mixed results.

    • Whichever tier of thrash metal you consigned Sacred Reich back in the 80's/90's they still had their moments.  "Ignorance" & "Surf Nicaragura" did a great job of establishing the band, whereas "The American Way" just got a little to comfortable and accessible (the title track grates nowadays) for my ears.  A couple more records better left forgotten about and then nothing for twenty three years.  2019 alone has now seen three releases from Phil Rind and co.  A live EP, a split EP with Iron Reagan and now a full length.

      Notable addition to the ranks for the current throng of releases is former Machine Head sticksman, Dave McClean.  Love or hate Machine Head, McClean is a more than capable drummer and his presence here is felt from the off with the opening and title track kicking things off with some real gusto.  'Divide & Conquer' and 'Salvation' muddle along nicely, never quite reaching any quality that would make my balls tingle but comfortable enough.  The looming build to 'Manifest Reality' delivers a real punch when the song starts proper.  Frenzied riffs and drums with shots of lead work to hold the interest.


      There's a problem already though (I know, I am such a fucking mood hoover).  I don't like Phil's vocals.  I never had if I am being honest.  The aggression to them seems a little forced even when they are at their best on tracks like 'Manifest Reality'.  When he tries to sing it just feels weak though ('Salvation') and tracks lose real punch.  Give him a riffy number such as 'Killing Machine' and he is fine with the Reich engine (probably a poor choice of phrase) up in sixth gear.  For every thrashy riff there's a fair share of rock edged, local bar act rhythm aplenty too.

      Let's not poo-poo proceedings though, because overall I actually enjoy "Awakening".  It is stacked full of catchy riffs that are sticky on the old ears.  Whilst not as raw as perhaps the - brilliant - artwork suggests with its black and white, tattoo flash sheet style design it is enjoyable enough.  Yes, 'Death Valley' & 'Something to Believe' have no place here, saved only by Arnett and Radziwill's lead work but 'Revolution' is a fucking 80's thrash heyday throwback to the extent that if you turn the TV on during it you might catch a new episode of Cheers!

      3/5
