Topic: Art Of TypH

Good afternoon my fellow horror lovers!...I've been meaning to post my art up for awhile(I don't remember posting art here before,so if I have i'm sorry...and I will try and also be more active,just hard working pretty much 3 jobs and having dial up internet, just trying to keep up with posting artwork takes up most of my free time so.

but anyways back on topic, for those of you who don't know me, my name is Brian, you can call my TypH, thats what i'm know in the art and comic book world. I little run down on my background I have been a published indie horror comic book artist since 2007, i've been working with McHozer Comics where I help create Deadmen & Poodleskirts Issue#1,and #2(which hasn't been printed) I also worked on a small Hellboy meets Hulk esque Ash-Can for Speakeasy Primates,which never got turned into a full issue due to writer issues. I also have a cartoon pin-up in Stephen Lindsays Jesus Hates Zombies:Featuring Lincoln Hates Werewolves Vol3, I will have a small piece of art in Blokes Tomb Of Horror Issue 666, and last but not least I have a 2 page spread in award winning UK Horror Magazine MURKY DEPTHS in issue #15 which can be bought on there website(i'll sooner or later post the piece here)

now onto the present, I have alot of things planned, the most resent would be my tattoo apprenticeship, I'm wanting to become a tattoo artist,for those of you who didn't see the Fuel The Dream post on here last night, I have a campaign going on over at indiegogo to help raise money for that plus some other things,you can get the link for that off the other post, or i will post it here again if it's okay or you can go on indiegogo and search Fuel The Dream, other things that I have planned the main things are my Horror Movie Tribute sketch book, and a sketchbook full of my original Tattoo Flash artwork. I am also slowing working on a horror zombie novel. Those are the 3 other main projects, I also have two other projects that have been sidelined for a bit, one is called Creekside Freaks, it's going to be a webcomic series based around my life as a horror artist and tattoo artist, and the last project is called Midnight Spookshow! this is my take on a new version of Tales From The Crypt, featuring very dark and gruesome tales!

Now enough of that, and now onto the real reason I created this post, to showoff some of my artwork, so here we go! all feedback and comments are welcomed:)

First off,heres a tribute piece I did based off the classic Texas Chainsaw Massacre movies, I am a huge Leatherface fan, so hope you guys and gals like it!

This next piece is done on a engraved painters canvas so it was a bit akward to draw on, but this is another horror movie tribute piece, based off of one of the better newer vampire movies in my opinion DayBreakers!

Re: Art Of TypH

heres two of my better pieces I have ever done, in my opinion

the first piece,which I still haven't outdone yet, it's a curse I tell you, with every piece I do I try to out do this one but I fail everytime haha....well back to the piece I am talking about...it's CHUCKY!
http://i365.photobucket.com/albums/oo96/typh_2009/Picture299-1.jpg
http://i365.photobucket.com/albums/oo96/typh_2009/Picture303-1.jpg

Re: Art Of TypH

Do you have a HQ file of a Frankenstein you've done? I'm asking because I would get that done as a tattoo in a heartbeat!

I know you said you were using that one as a reference for yours but if you have another one that you wouldn't mind sending that would be awesome.

Edit: Or the Pennywise one. That;s a bad ass one as well!

by HQ you mean High Quality right? just checking to make sure haha, I have done another frankenstein piece based off Boris Karloff and one of Herman Munsters,and another one based off a classic comic book cover, I will try to post them later(well I can't post Herman because I haven't scanned it yet and the actually art is at my girlfriends's right now haha)

but I could always work up another frankenstein piece sometime if you don't like the other one's that I will be posting later.

and yep I sure do have a file for the IT piece, I can either e-mail you it or give your the direct link to it from my photobucket account! Glad you like the art alot that you want a tattoo of it! big_smile

Re: Art Of TypH

^^Sent you a PM. and yep, High Quality!

Re: Art Of TypH

Here is the newest piece of art i've done up, For some reason this piece just drained the life out of me haha, I actually did this piece up just for Festival Of Fear, I saw Lance on the guest list, so I wanted to do up a piece based off of him, from one of my favourite movies NEAR DARK, in my opinion one of the best vampire movies ever! Hope you guys like it!

Re: Art Of TypH

I dig it. 

Don't take this as criticizing, but a tortillon (also called a "blending stick") would help smooth out the hash marks in the shaded areas and give the overall pic a bit more depth.  They come in especially handy when hand-drawing portraits.

<--- bit of an artist, m'self. smile

thanks man glad to see you like it alot! and thanks for the tip, i'll look into a blending stick..do you buy yours online or do most basic art stores sell them?

also do you post your artwork on here, would love to see some of your stuff

Re: Art Of TypH

I'm a pencil artist, so I can get everything I need at Wal-Mart. lol  However yes, most art stores will have tortillons.

They're easy to make, though.  Save yourself a buck or two and just use a piece of typing paper or whatever sketch pad paper you have on hand:

Re: Art Of TypH

You realize I hate all of you, right?  I can't draw a straight line with a ruler.  Muttering, muttering, muttering....

Re: Art Of TypH

For the longest time, I didn't know how to draw, either.

Until I picked up a pencil when I was seven. lol

Re: Art Of TypH

And 30 years later it's a 50/50 chance of me drawing a circle or puncturing my dick with the pencil.  sad

Re: Art Of TypH

If you puncture your dick with a pencil, you're doing something wrong.

With the pencil, I mean.

Hell, I don't know, maybe both. lol

Re: Art Of TypH

Searching for "dick drawing you're doing it wrong" came up with this pic-

Seriously, WTF?

Re: Art Of TypH

That's a teen werewolf?  It looks more like an emo and a grunger got together and had a baby. big_smile
