dusk






Someone's a bit sleepy... Or perhaps has a bit of a devilish idea or two. Just a color sketch for no reason at all. Thought I'd color it up and play with the hues. That's just how I am these days. Carefree and casual. Click on the pic and see for yourself...

It's not made out of pancakes. I am very disappointed.





OK, I am over the lack of pancakes. It is quite nice.

Travis Christian said...

You're REALLY inpriring me to get one of those brush pens!
Great colors, Dan.

Alina Chau said...

Lovely illo! Beautiful loose lines!

UrbanBarbarian said...

Jesse: I do have some additional Pancake Photos. I'm strongly considering posting them. Don't tempt me!

Travis: You might get hooked! It's a nice departure from regular pens.

Alina: Thanks, you amazing artist you!

Tu arte es muy bueno, pero tu español está oxidado.

Rebekit said...

nice sketch!

Penickart said...

Bee-u-ti-ful! I love what you're doing with colors these days.

UrbanBarbarian said...

KELSEY: Gracias mucho. Quizás el problema era he estado writting en portugués

REBEKIT: Much appreciated!

MIKE: Right back atcha'! Those movie characters rock!

Kelsey said...

OHHH! Meu português é terrível.

Que diriez-vous de du français traduit par Google ?

In any language, your art rocks! :)

UrbanBarbarian said...

Vielen Dank! Ich bin sicher alle Übersetzungen durch google mangeln die Würde von ihren spezifischen Dialekten. Haben Sie je Deutsch versucht?

Kelsey said...

Que?

:)

UrbanBarbarian said...

I'm all over the map, Kelsey. What can I say really?

Jon Diesta said...

I wish I thought about doing that with pancakes... I'm getting hungry. Dude, your drawings are awesome! Very bold, and your compositions are strong. Thanks for breaking my artists block!

Hans said...

This pic has a sensation of abandon and absolute carelessness. So quiet, so charm... Fantastic illo, love the way she looks.
Dan, you're the HUE-Master!

martin wittig said...

Man,...it's been WAY too long since i have had a chance to check out your work!!Brilliant as always....some things never change!:)

ruralbarbarian said...

I'm sad to report that this may be young Panosian's last entry. Tomorrow, he has a date with destiny... a dance with the devil... a trip to the mountain top, if you will. Survival is unlikely. Pain is guaranteed.

UrbanBarbarian said...

All of what the Rural Barbarian has spoken of has come to pass! I walk in pain after my Gold's Gym Venice Beach experience!

Between my blasted marathon training and this gym nonsense I may not survive my next blog post!!!

ruralbarbarian said...

The Panosian put up a valiant effort and still possesses barbarian-like biceps. I believe he will return...

...but that is another story.

Michael Valiquette said...

Wow.
I had no idea what to expect when I clicked on the link to your blog. I'm only familiar with your Marvel work from way back. Dude, you got GOOD. There's so much personality in your work now, you've really come into your own.
You have a new fan. I'll be checking back regularly.

Stephen Studios said...

This is really great! Nice design, inked very well, nice skin tone used as well, and awsome detail on the face and body!

That's hawt. Great expression and bold lines.

UrbanBarbarian said...

MIKE: Thanks! I seem to get that reaction quite a bit these days, so I guess that's a good thing. I keep trying to improve.
STEPHEN: Much appreciated. I enjoy this sort of work more and more.
CDEBODA: "hawt"? I love that! Thanks!

ruralbarbarian said...

Perhaps your talent INCREASES as your strength DECREASES? I have obvioulsy made my choice.

Marcelo Niño said...

bueno, lo mio es en castellano.
Muy buenos trabajos, manejas muchos estilos, muy buen trabajo.

Michael Valiquette said...

Where are you being published these days? would love to check what you're doing.

UrbanBarbarian said...

MIKE: Mostly I do advertising work but there is a book called 24/SEVEN published by Image I just did a short story for. The book is similar to Flight except it's all robot related.

Also, that Pirate Tales cover below is published by Boom! Studios. I've been doing little things here and there and I'd like to get back into the business a bit more.

Things have a way of working out if they're supposed to. In the meantime I'm illustrating a Spiderman 3 Children's book which is challenging to say the least!

passiongreek said...

Very very nice. I'm glad I stumbled across your blog. Nice, diverse drawing style.
Keep up the good work.

UrbanBarbarian said...

Thanks PassionGreek! I married a beautiful Greek girl! The fates must of smiled at me!

chris chua said...

wonderful lines and draftsmanship...I'll remember to check here more often! Great work.

Chris Wahl said...

Exquisite work!

Michael Valiquette said...

Thanks for stopping by my blog Dan. The kind comments are greatly appreciated. I've been drawing a lot lately and will have stuff to post soon, so please check back. I'll be doing the same.

ruralbarbarian said...

The barbarian in me hopes that Panosian's lack of recent updates is due to his renewed commitment to the art of iron. No time for that drawing nonsense, I pray.

Joe said...

Really nice blog. Surely be back for more.

UrbanBarbarian said...

Thanks Guys! and even you - Rural Barbarian!
