  1. Share your fave sketches !

    Got this from Mike Choi. Said he knocked it out during an episode of Homeland.
  2. The OFFICIAL "This week in your ORIGINAL ART collection?"

    Thanks! I actually hit Rob up the day it was published, and he finally agreed to sell it.
  3. The OFFICIAL "This week in your ORIGINAL ART collection?"

    Chew got me back into reading comics after over a decade, and looking up Rob Guillory's web page introduced me to OA for the first time. Feels good to be able to get this page from him. Final Image for the Chew Series http://www.comicartfans.com/GalleryPiece.asp?Piece=1451783&GSub=182595

    Adding this as it's not an image you see of Spider-Man every day Amazing Spider-Man 793 Stegman Variant Cover http://www.comicartfans.com/GalleryPiece.asp?Piece=1444228&GSub=182593
  5. Unprofessional Commission Conduct

    That I can relate. I follow an artist on instagram and have a commission I'm waiting on. Original estimate was 8 weeks max, but now it's been 4 month. He has done a lot of other work including numerous person sketches and even the one a day inktober event. Yet I can't even get an update, except the first one three months ago. I just don't get it. The guy even picked the subject out of three choices and he was excited to do it.
  6. I just saw the pre-auction estimates as his way to try something new and see what people think, not a manipulation angle. Maybe that's my naivete. There have been only three articles posted so far with estimates, the earliest one on Nov 24th. I understand constructive criticism, but man....tough crowd.

    Thanks for your advice with it Malvin!

  9. The OFFICIAL "This week in your ORIGINAL ART collection?"

    Just completed a significant (and for me high anxiety) trade in my infantile OA collecting career. This was my favorite piece in the trade. I will be posting the rest of the pieces to my CAF gallery, but wanted to share this one here . One comment I have to make is that the other party was a joy to work with, and it speaks volumes to the OA collecting community. http://www.comicartfans.com/GalleryPiece.asp?Piece=1440493&GSub=182593 McFarlane Spider-Man #9 page 3
  10. So I've always understood blue line art, but I've seen some pieces with red lines being used in the backgrounds and usually a message that says remove red lines. Here is a random Warlock piece that I have that has them. I'm also about to get a cover with some red line work on it. What were those used for?
  11. Celebrate Dell'Otto!

    Well this one is up for sale right now by Dell'Otto, but since it's published (Wizard #230)....it has a published cover asking price. It's gorgeous though (not the best scan)
  12. Celebrate Dell'Otto!

    Picked up this illustration he did with colored pencils. Even when it's just a quicker sketch and not a full blown painting, he does great work!
  13. Clink Auction Started tonight

    I would like to hear your, or anyone's thoughts on the ASM McFarlane piece. Do you think the stat effected the price or was it around FMV?
  14. Original Art vs. Comics — the Showdown

    I use to buy slabbed comics, now the only comics I get are ones I have the OA too for the most part. That or universal classics I've missed, but I almost always go digital for that. How the hell did I miss Locke and Key the first time around?? Anyway, I will still occasionally get a slab comic on ebay if I can get a good snipe in. However, in addition to OA, I've started adding a XM or Sideshow statue or two into my collection. It displays real nice next to the same character OA.
