I got tagged by the enigma that is :icondarkchapel666: to do this 10 question thing. SO here goes!

1. You must post these rules
2. Each person has to share 10 facts about themselves
3. Answer the 10 questions asked by the person who tagged you and make up 10 questions for the 10 people you tag
4. Choose 10 people and put their icons on your journal

I'm not going to tag anyone because most of my friends on here have already been tagged, and all the good questions have already been asked. Also, I'm lazy. 

1. Who are your artistic influences?
Oh where to start...My father was an illustrator, so that's where it all begins. After him, my first big artistic influence was Capcom, as I constantly played Street Fighter II on the snes. Soon after, I discovered Street Fighter III, and I immediately fell in love with the character designs and Nishimura Kinu's incredible artwork. 

After that, I constantly was seeking out more artistic sources of inspiration: Frazetta, Corben, Moebius, Liberatore, Darrow, The Studio, Vaughn Bode, Nirasawa, Otomo, Bisley, Phil Hale, Shane Glines, Dick Matena, Ron Cobb, William Stout, Dave Stevens, Bob Peak, David Grove, Sergio Toppi, Mignola, Sienkiewicz, Giger, Serpieri, Chris Cunningham, the list goes on and on.

2. What was your greatest artistic achievement?
I will tend to think that my most recently created piece is my best, but I always have the desire to reach greater heights. So, this perhaps a goal that I will never achieve, but my work will evolve in pursing that unattainable goal. 

3. What was your favorite artwork and why?
I enjoy drawing my own characters the most, especially my female characters.

4. What genre of music do you listen to when you work. And does it affect your workflow by any chance? Any other band/music recommendations are welcomed.
I listen to such an odd amalgamation of different genres, that i couldn't pinpoint it to one. My favorite band is Gorillaz, and their style is all over the place, but they have consistently exciting percussion elements. At the same time, I love the ethereal and haunting music of new age singer and songwriter Loreena Kckennitt. But my faves, besides those, are ELO, Vampire Weekend, Teddybears, Blur, Aphex Twin, Simon and Garfunkel, Electric Guest, and the Fratellis.

5. What are your artistic guilty pleasures?
I hate his work, but I really enjoy looking at every disaster created by Rob Liefeld. His glaring mistakes almost seem intentional and there's a certain kind of crappy method to his madness. 

6. Is it just a me thing or do you also place cryptic and subliminal messages in your works. In my defense they serve as tiny uneditable watermarks, I guess, but go on with your explanation!
I think that's something I'd like to do more often, but its something I really haven't worked on. 

7. What was the greatest lesson you've learned so far and when and how did this life changing moment happened? Did the angels ascended from the skies, Was it as magical as fuck?
Looking at the human body in terms of simple geometrical shapes and planes. 

8. I wish there weren't as many of these questions. I'm running of things to ask. Oh yeah, what was your favorite movie? It could be either animated or an actual movie-movie (with actors, actresses and stage designs and shit).
Children of Men is my favorite film of all time, but a close second would be Alien, followed by the likes of The Big Lebowski, Akira, Apocalypto, No Country for Old Men, 2001: A Space Odyssey, The Shining, Blade Runner, Paths of Glory, Dredd, and tons of other great films.
9. If you could bring back one dead artist (painter,poet,musician) in exchange for a currently alive one, who would it be and why?
I'd bring back Moebius probably, because he had so many stories to tell and lessons to teach. His imagination knew no bounds. Or Michelangelo. That guy had an ungodly amount of intelligence and talent.

I'd replace an obnoxious-ass celebrity. If youtube sensations count, I'd say go right for FRED. 

10. Wasn't that fun? It sure as hell was because now it's your turn to tag someone else so THANK YOU, maybe?
Pass!

Battle Circuit by Phobos-Romulus
Battle Circuit

Last Capcom fighting tribute I did.

The playable characters from Capcom's 1997 wonderfully bizarre and kooky beat 'em up, "Battle Circuit". Clockwise from top right: Alien Green, Pink Ostrich, Captain Silver, Yellow Iris and Cyber Blue(center).

Delta Red by Phobos-Romulus
Delta Red

I unfortunately didn’t make it into Udon’s latest Capcom Fighting Tribute book, but oh well, I got some good pieces out of my attempt to do so!


Here’s the first I did. Cammy and her Delta Red comrades.

I'm very sorry for your loss.

But why are you telling this to me? When I get a message like this out of the blue from someone I don't even know, it comes across as weird.

Not exactly a "man" but you are welcome!  :)  If you like my look and ever need reference photos, I would be honored to give some to you.  I have thousands that are not posted on dA (that also fully show my face) - everything from classic nudes to highly erotic.  Keep up the great work!
