Dude, you must not watch LOST, cuz the guy who plays Sawyer on that show would own Gambit six ways from Sunday!

He certainly would. If that guy could do a New Orleans french accent Marvel could sue his existence for Gambit-likeness rights.

Anyway, you are absolutely amazing!! Not only is your rendering top notch on the comics end, and realism, but your CONCEPTS OWN!! Wolvie and all those classic horror icons, they had such an influence on my childhood, and probably most of the cats on here.

I'm praying that you have had some art school education, because otherwise I'll just stick to my lame-@$$ day job!!!

Seriously, keep it up, and I'd really like to know what kind of schooling you've had; I'm talkin years, college attended, what area you're staying, and what the market is like there, and what kind of projects you've been working on . . .

What sucks is, they actually offered him the role!!! They wrote a cameo into the movie, then took it out, then put in back in just for him, then he declined due to scheduling, and it's out again apparently

This may not be the end of the X-men series I've heard, though . . .

According to SHH Vinnie Jones (Cain Marko/Juggernaut) has said he is signed on for 4 and 5.

Who knows? But this is the wrong section to discuss it.

I don't watch lost, but I've seen the guy on the news when talking about him, as well as magazines. He doesn't give me the Gambit vibe. Maybe it's because I'm use to the early 90's version of the character where he was cool, a bit playful, and not so overbearing with the "cool" factor like he's been for the past few years, imo.

I did have art school training, but it didn't help much on my drawing end, it just introduced me to photoshop and oil painting.

I've started drawing as far back as the 2nd grade, highly influenced by the likes of Jim Lee and Berni Wrightson at the time, and Jim still holds a huge influence on me. Other influences have been Campbell, Joe Madureira, Lee Weeks, and Bruce Timm. I went to Northwest College Of Art in Poulsbo, WA, but they didn't really do much for my drawing. Just some design programs and oil painting, like I mentioned. I went for 3 years there and earned my Bachelor's with them.

You can definitely see those artists' influence in your work, which is a stellar compliment. I've been drawing like my whole life, seriously . . . my mother has this baby book when I was 3, and it says "He really likes to color"; I'm not trying to be cocky, but I'm pretty advanced, and I am just dumbfounded by your work.

Do you use any/much reference when doing the comic booky stuff?

Anyway, I hear you on the art school thing; it more teaches you the business end, and design elements, which do help your art in the commercial sense, but don't do much for actual skill development.

I was a design major: Illustration, and I think getting bogged down with all the logistics actually hurt who I was as an artist; too much pressure came w/ the art after that! Ironic.

I wish I would have been a fine arts major instead!!! LOL!

Anyhoo, superior skills, my friend! I'm sure there's unfortunately nothing we can do to stop you at keeping the hope alive

Oh, and MadMaximus, I almost forgot . . . don't just go based on Josh Halloway's looks . . . he looks like Gambit, but one day I was watching the show, and was like: "that dude IS Gambit"; he's kind of an ********* on the show, and I think he would just rock as Gambit; he's funny, charismatic, and he really does look like him!

Do yourself a favor and rent the 1st season if you have time . . . the show is NOTHING like you think it is, which I thought was a dramatized version of Survivor; it's very comic-booky in its themes; think X-files meets Robinson Crusoe . . .

I use some reference. I have a huge assortment of actors and models I'll use sometimes. Have the time, it's really for a particular hair style or shading, but sometimes I'll base a character strait off of someone and I try to draw it that way.


I don't watch too much regular TV anymore, I'm more of a movie guy, and from what you describe, it's exactly what I thought it was, so don't assume that I thought it was dramatized survivor. My initial thoughts was CastAway meets Xfiles actually.

I hate to beat a dead horse, but if you rent the first disc of season 1, I think you'll be pleased . . . the first 2 episodes play just like a movie; I don't watch too much TV either; same way; I'm a movie guy . . . but the real good shows, I try to rent . . . which leads to many hours of marathon-style sessions, unfortunately

Well, I'm pretty much just starting out. It takes time to really get into these things. Time, and probably not being dragged around by being in a military family where certains states are completely inconvient to check out Comicons (such as Alaska...burrr). But thanks. I've seen some real talent here, so there's no reason to be jealous of me.

er...didn't really learn anywhere, just started drawing in 2nd grade and went from there, mostly collecting comics and inspired by Berni Wrightson's work on Stephen King's "Cycle Of The Werewolf."

Nothing big, just colored one of my older pencil pieces for a siggy picture at another site, and for my myspace profile background. The orange tinge is intentional.

Flat colors sans pencil (not really progress, but I think it looks nifty, lol):
