TORPEDO by Chris Samnee


It's taken me longer than planned to get something up here this week.
To say that Alex Toth and Jordi Bernet have been huge influences on me over the years would be a major understatement. Not to mention the fact that all my fellow Comic Twartists have really done an amazing job on on their pieces this week.
Such big shoes to fill and a lot of tough acts to follow has had me struggling to live up to all these fine gents with this week's sketch.
Great work, guys.

Also, the initial layout and pencils for this can be seen over on my blog.

That gal's goin' in the drink! Perfect scene for the topic and masterful use of negative space, as always.

That's great man. Just enough information to make it readable (not bogged down with un-necessary rendering)with a flair that's all your own.

Kudos sir.

So gorgeous. Well done. Gotta agree, Toth's work is continually challenging me as well to think about pieces in a different way. Amazing talent.

Great work, Chris!

That right there is fucking awesome, Chris!

I've said it before, but you're gonna be our Toth before this is all over :)

Great work, man. Great work.

I ain't so great at critiquing the art, but I definitely know what I like and this one is incredible. I really like the inks on the boardwalk.

WONDERFUL angle there, Chris :D And that body in the water is just the cherry on the pie :)

Cheers,
Francesco

Jeez that's slick, Chris. And that is a great shot, where you see just the edge of Torpedo's eye. Fantastic.

Fantastic composition, Chris. There are so many things to love about this piece I don't even know where to start.
