Yeah, I try to be concious of that.  Both of the pics I posted above were only roughly 32kb apiece, once I got done tweaking the settings.  Playing around with JPEG compression a bit can save a lot of file size with little loss of quality.

Now that I have my desktop background :oP
Great drawing, DC should cough up the big bucks and have you do a monthly Captain Marvel tile. Although I wish DC would get rid of his button over look, just rubs me the wrong way. Truly awsome drawing Anthony.

The Star Trek - Borg...great....can almost picture a backstory there. The Marvel Adventures w/ Captain America...Love it, though Bucky looks a lil too much like Robin.

I don't know if they have a cover artist or not, Hero Games (www.herogames.com) is about to come out with a book called Dark Champion's: The Animated Series. May want to check with them and see if they have anything open :)

Be a nice change to the usual stable of artist they have

I dont do tight pencils anymaore, so from layout to a quick color
study..probably 1:30. i used to do at least 7 pages a
week,depending on my mood swings and for pin-ups and
covers, usually about 3 hours.

It's the missing section of JBs Captain America/Batman book...Robin and Bucky switch places to see who really does have the better partner.

Some damn fine work, Anthony. And thanks for the words of
encouragement a few days back!
Thing is, I have no intention whatsoever of pursuing a career in comics. I
just draw because I enjoy it! It's funny, I went to Pearl Paint a few weeks
back and bought some brushes for inking (I have never inked with a
brush before). And the worker assisting me kept asking me what I was
trying out for. He couldn't understand why I'd want to spend money on
professional art tools if I had no intention of becoming a professional.

While there are times that I ponder What Might Have Been, after reading
your difficulty of maintaining steady work, I see I made the
right choice by sticking to my career on computers. If it's rough for an
artist of your caliber, I see no hope for a schmuck like me :)

Hey Vincent-
It was rough because I made it so. It's very simple to thrive in
the industry, first and foremost be professional, nothing can
stall a career more. It doesn't hurt to be talented but then thats
subjective, there're plenty of guys that are filling a void in the
industry simply because the darn books need pretty pictures.
Keep practicing, study art, not just classic art but pop
art.modern art and literature. Remember we tell stories,
understanding the narrative thread is key. I think it falls in to
place.Practice,practice.believe me it will click.

Perhaps Anthony is really John Byrne posting under a "Pen Name?" ; - )

Sorry Anthony, a joke carried over from another thread.

Anthony

My name is Chuck Gibson. I've worked professionally as an inker for the last 10 years. I have to say that I'm EXTREMELY impressed with your work and would like very much to chat with you and pick your brain a bit.

Could you please drop me a line offlist at chuckgibson@cableone.net

I'd appreciate it.

best
chuck
