You said that you would like to use color like me. Why don't you try to use it like you do in your tattoos? I was once only drawer, but now I paint. Just try out some different wet mediums and see what you like. It's what I did. BTW, you are very good. Keep up the good work!

:-) George a. yesthal replies: "Ya know, it's strange. I never had a problem with color in body art. The way you lay in color with a tatoo is a whole different ball game. I actually prefered doin color when tattooing. One would think that I would be able to carry it over to paper, but alas... I will eventually get around to experimenting with painting."

Great gallery, lots of wonderful details and original ideas.

You are a talented artist, but I feel you should try to do more HAPPY, and LIGHT subjects.

57 George a. yesthal replies: "I'll do that if I get hired by Hallmark. But thanx."

Thanks for your comment. I really like your art, as it tells stories and seems to touch the darksides of the beholder. The amount of detail is wonderful. I'm an artist who always wants to put in as much detail as possible, so I know the time and effort you put into your work. Some bits seem a little off proportion but this could be because of the bad quality. Get yourself a good scanner. This will help alot.
I envy your colour-skill. This simply adding hints of colour creates an awesome atmosphere. Keep up the great work.

Some advice from an unqualified amateur hobby illustrator: Get more attention to composition and light sources. Use references. (I think I also should stick to these hints.)

Getting a full time illustrator job is quite difficult (at least in Germany it is). Try to contact game-development-companies. Maybe you can get some commissions. (I'll try as soon as I get through this daXX diploma).

Cheers and happy drawing evil things.

57 George a. yesthal replies: "I guess you got it when I said your work is SICK. SICK is a good thing. Some folks take offense at that. Thanx for visiting. Your critiques are so right on, and I'm working on that stuff. I'm taking a little break from drawing to try to complete my novel, but I'll be back drawing soon. Thanx again."

Tattoos huh? What is harder drawing on paper or drawing on skin? Good luck to you in whatever you do.

57 George a. yesthal replies: "Well, naturally in body art there is no erasing so it's largely a matter of carefully planning your work and knowing what you want to accomplish before even loading your needles. For a good tattooist, however, there is nothing that cannot be fixed. I have done cover-up work on abysmally poor tattoos and had the finished product look stunning. It's all in the planning. Thank you so much for the well-wishes, Cap."

Thanks so much for commenting on my page! It really means a lot. And no one is an abject failure. If anyone is an abject failure, it's the cupcake I just consumed for being so damn full of icing-sugary-goodness. But anyway, apart from that, your art is amazing. If you're really planning on doing something with it, you'll be so amazingly good at it. Honestly. You're extremely talented, and should definitely go further with it. Cheers!<3
