    Hey, Dave didn't go crazy. You don't even know Dave, so how can you say that? Well . . . . I don't know him either, and there's a fine line between genius and insanity beeeeeeeeyach!

    As a fellow Adobe Illustrator enthusiast I can say that you work is some of the best I have seen as of late. Your entry for the Batman Begins contest was very impressive. How long does it take you to create one of these, like the Batman for instance?

    the batman took sometime... i work two jobs and i try to get some freelance when i can, so i would say a better part of a week. about 3-4 hours a day. i just like using illustrator, give things a new look, looks more custom then just a regular photo shop job. thanks for the great complimants. here, this is what im workin on for my fantastic four contest. also very time consuming. this is about 5 hours worth, give or take..

    still needs alot of work, but you should be at least able to tell who it is.

    It's cool, it's cool. I'm just lookin' out for my man, Dave . . . funniest M'F'er alive. Hopefully he'll be back on the air soon, or HBO will pick him . . . wishful thinking I guess.

    I completely agree with you about Illustrator. It's nice to see someone else here feels the same way about the certain quality you get with Illustrator, I was beginning to think that everyone was using Photoshop for artwork rather than a mixture of the two.

    Your F4 entry looks fantastic (no pun intended)....and trust me, I know all about spending many many hours trying to complete once piece.

    Keep up the good work!

    These are all fantastic....I had some illustrator work that I've done posted in various threads on these boards but I think it's since been bumped to the last page.

    1. Get REAL friendly with the pen tool

    2. Learn about "fills" and "strokes"

    3. Learn how to manipulate text (spacing, creating outlines...etc)

    4. Learn your "quick keys" (helps me save A LOT of time)

    CTRL + Z = UNDO

    CTRL + SHIFT + Z = REDO

    CTRL + Y = WIREFRAM MODE (SHOWS EXACTLY HOW YOU BUILT YOUR ART)

    CTRL + J = JOINS 2 POINTS OF AN OBJECT TOGETHER

    Learning those 4 aspects would give you a good start, but nothing beats a hands on learning experience.
