Hi all, I'm new to the group but wanted to introduce myself and share some of my pen and ink work. I picked up some pens and markers to do some work. I was Watching Ghost World and was once again inspired by the work of Daniel Clowes. Anyway, here's a smattering of old and new sketches:…See More
This is a group for those of us who ascribe to the artistic crafts. Be that Photography, Painting, Drawing, Sculpture, Printmaking, or whatever it may be. Let's discuss what we're making, why we're making it.
"I have to say I love the first one best - it still has the power to pull me in and even make me jump, all the while already knowing what's going to happen. I also think Sigourney Weaver's acting is the best (or maybe the script was better…"
"1. Aliens. While Alien did an outstanding job, I personally like Aliens better. It could be the ridiculous Colonial Marines ("Game over, man! Game over!") or that the people are facing the greater threat of an entire hive, as opposed to…"

If $2K isn't a HUGE amount of money, I'd say it's worth it - especially if you don't…"
