Now that you've done the original three, think you'll do the prequels or think that those are way too embarrassing to even touch with a ten meter cattle prod?

Nope, I shan't be doing the prequels lol

Oh well.  Just thought I'd ask. 

Though something like this would be cool to do with Knight of the Old Republic.  :-D  A game that is pretty much its own movie in its own right.

I'm concentrating on more nostalgic films from my childhood and teenage years ( apart from the odd Poster Posse project ) so it will be mainly stuff from the 80s and even late 70s. I'm very very old lol

Don't feel bad.  I"m from a similar era.  Though, a little later than yourself.  More into the 80s and 90s. 

But in terms of films from the 80s, how about stuff like "Evil Dead", "Re-animator" and so on?

Evil Dead maybe. I have a list of around 30 films I intend to do :)

What's on the list?  Is it in your journal or is it in your mind right now?

I have a list on paper at my desk. I don't want to give everything away but stuff like Ghostbusters, E.T., Mad Max and Labyrith and loads more.

I've been watching too much anime. At first I thought it was a titan's perspective from Shingeki no Kyojin.

If you don't mind a ton of blood and gore it's a great on to watch. Titans are giants that eat humans and there's a chase scene through the woods so that's what made me think of it.

Now that my anime nerdiness is out of the way I can clearly see that it's Star Wars now.

I'm learning to read this "face art" you create, and I'm appreciating it more. I like how you blended the sunlight shafts and trees to create that Darth Vader face mirage. Clap

Thank you! Some of my Nerds Eye View posters don't have the hidden faces like these or my Rocky IV piece but I like to put a little something in them all...more to come :)

These and one or two of the other pieces in your gallery, lead me to believe that you might be a bit of a Star Wars fan! :)

All three posters are beautiful and bestow a mystique and gravitas upon their subjects, far beyond (in my opinion) that which the source movies deserve.

I know I don't often comment on your postings but I do look at them all…honest!….and much of your work of late has been beyond exceptional. I think I've said it once before but I'll say it again anyway; I've followed your work since those heady, far off days at GFX (how long ago was THAT!!?) and you have grown like no other artist I've followed. Your output puts many of us to shame and the quality often sends me scuttling off to my work desk muttering "must try harder, must try harder!".

I've just finished another shoot in Cardiff, but the next time I'm up there we must arrange to meet (yeah I know you're miles away from there but I have a car and a sat nav) cos I'd love to meet the guy behind the work and buy him a drink!

Just a bit of a fan yeah :D

I have to say that your words mean a hell of a lot to me as I have always considered and still so to this day a MASSIVE inspiration to my work and you are in my eyes ( don't argue here ) a far superior artist than I! I still remember the words of advice you gave me many years ago on GFX about me being so defensive about stating that I didn't use references, like I was somehow cheating if I did.And looking back on my first forays into digital art it is so painfully obvious I didn't use references lol! I use so many nowadays. So saying those words is quite humbling to me :) And yeah a pint WILL happen one day!

Cheers mate! Just made my day.

Ahhhh…the old 'references' chestnut! GFX's attitude (or rather the attitude of some of it's principal members) towards the use of reference material as well as much of the other dreadful advice handed out to young artists, was one of the contributing factors in me deciding to leave and come here.
It's still a battle I fight with many of my students actually, which is doubly odd since many are young enough to have grown up with the internet where you can find images of just about anything you care to imagine. As a result I find myself having to teach the very basics in sculpting, how to observe and understand the forms they are trying to recreate, rather than the principals of make up effects which is what the course is supposed to be about. 
Hmmm?…there's a thought! Maybe it's BECAUSE of the internet! Artists of my generation taught ourselves through books and in every book I have there's always some little section with the artist working from a model or getting a friend (or even themselves) to hit a pose while they take a snapshot. The internet only ever hands out the gravy, never the meat and gristle that is the foundation of good art.

My hand has modelled for me so many times I think it should get an agent! I have thousands of images in folders as reference now and I'm constantly seeing stuff in mags and out and about that I think..'ooh that will come in handy with something or other! '
