Indy by diablo2003 Indy by diablo2003
The documentary Drew Struzan:The Man Behind the Poster is showing on Netflix right now and it got me on a Struzan kick so I drew this up completely traditionally using Prismacolor pencil and a little white ink on a 17X25" piece of Strathmore tonal paper. Sometimes I see a technique by another artist and I just have to try out out myself to see if I can do it.

hope you dig!

That's pretty damn good.  I think Struzan himself would approve.  :)

I saw the documentary yesterday and I'm trying to do a piece in his style myself.  But Struzan has a gift for arranging compositions to maximum effect.  One of a kind that guy.

I had a friend comment on a post I made on Facebook with a link to one of your youtube videos showing you work. The friend, who is also an artist, said something to the effect of you not being as good as I say because you use computer tricks and shortcuts. I said that I know for a fact that Mark Brooks can still do kick ass drawings on actual paper if he wanted. This proves I was right. You are mega-talented no matter what the medium you use.

I actually do not know if he even has a DA page. He is a more "alternative" kind of artist. His comics are more like dark fantasy and Neil Gaiman type stuff.

HAHA! That's pretty funny! tell your friend to come on over and I'll give him a day on my contiq with all my tolls and he can try and create something just to see how well he does. All the photoshops and Cintiqs in the world won't help an artist if they don't know how to draw in the first place=-)

That is pretty much what I said. Just because you can move an eye in Photoshop or create a background with SketchUp doesn't mean that you do not still need to be able to draw. I know that you are a very popular artist, especially for covers, and that you probably have a ton of projects to do in a short amount of time. What you do is amazing to me and that was why in the original post with your video I said "Now this is what a comic artist is!", because I have so many people tell me that I am good enough and all that but I know that I will probably never reach your level of skill and I use people like you as an example to those that maybe do not know what good comic art looks like.
