No one before Bernini had managed to make marble so carnal. In his nimble hands it would flatter and stream, quiver and sweat. His figures weep and shout, their torses twist and run, and arch themselves in spasms of intense sensation. He could, like an alchemist, change one material into another - marble into trees, leaves, hair, and, of course, flesh.

Gianlorenzo Bernini and the Baroque movement 4 life!
Sample pencils I did from Kelly Sue DeConnick’s Avengers Assembly #9 script that she very graciously sent me.
The scans from Kinko’s didn’t come out as well as I was hoping, but a little tweaking goes a long way.
Enjoy. And I’m certainly open to comments and critiques.
Also, likes and reblogs are the great for the holidays!
I’m a firm believer in the idea that super-heroes teach you things, and it’s usually a pretty simple lesson. Superman teaches you to be nice and to be a good person, because that’s the way you make things better for everyone. Batman teaches you that if you’re determined enough, and if you try your hardest, one man can change the world. Those are great guidelines, not just for storytelling, but for life.
But Spider-Man’s lesson is a little less sugar-coated, and a little more human.
Spider-Man teaches you that you’re going to screw up. It’s going to happen, and it’s going to be bad. You’re going to make bad decisions and it’s going to feel like they’re going to crush you. It’s going to hurt.
But Spider-Man also teaches you that the only way to get through it is that you never, ever quit. It’s not easy, but even if it seems impossible, you can beat anything that stands in your way. You can become the person you want to be.
And that’s why he’s the best.
If you like Spidey, or superheroes in general, I beg you to read this. It hits home and hits home hard.
And it just reminds me of why I fell in love with Raimi’s Spider-Man, and I’m so indifferent towards Amazing. Just read it, you’ll see.
Except when he gave up, quit and surrendered to Satan in 2007
Truth to power.
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (2014) - Trailer stills
This trailer makes me feel happy.
flattered to find myself on this list that the incredible Julie Dillon compiled, but mainly reblogging because I want to help her spread the word about these great female artists! take a look, there is a lot of lovely art here.
I have been wanting to assemble a huge…
Signal boost for awesomeness.
Kelly Sue, you would probably love this.
American History 101
truth. i honestly dont give a rats ass if you unfollow me for this. learn the truth, sometimes the truth hurts.
Reblogging for the gif about shrinking Native American territories. Just look at the huge difference between 1860 and 1870. In just ten years.
This is one of the best posts on Tumblr.
Master post of the past few things of drawn, now scanned instead of just shot on my 5S.
Finally got around to getting the scanner up and running after our move, so there should be more of the same in the near future.
And as always, LIKES are great, but REBLOGS are better.
Here’s my redesigned Cyclops standing amongst the rubble of a Sentinel he took care of.
Cyclops gets a pretty bad rap, but I actually have a soft spot for the guy. Ultimately I think he’s always trying to do what’s best for the team and the people he cares about, he just sometimes comes across dickish.
Anyways, enjoy the continued X-Men art, cause the next piece is a sharp turn in direction…before probably posting more X-Men art as suggested by my friends.
And remember likes are super-fantastic-great, but reblogs make the world turn.
