World of the Ring by Jian Guo
Middle-Earth seems like it’s a pretty happening place: plenty of exotic locales to explore, elves handing out gifts, trees to ride when your footses ache, and treasure available only to those courageous enough to take it. If it ever existed in a Tolkien novel or note, then Jian has probably drawn it: his jaw-droppingly resplendent masterpieces tell just as enthralling a story as the novels they emulate… though in considerably fewer words. The lead image: “A Long Adventure with a Hobbit” is available in print form at Jian’s DeviantArt.
These are astounding!!!
“BRIDE OF FRANKENSTEIN” art-poster by Martin Ansin (for Mondo Gallery)
“Walt Stanchfield used to really get cranky when our sketches where too straight up and down. So when I’m teaching (and drawing my own sketches) I try to tell the artist to LEAN the pose, push that hip out, move the pose more left and right etc….
If you imagine a box around the drawing from it’s furthest edges you should be able to also imagine a centerline down the middle. That centerline helps you see if the drawing is too straight up and down. It also helps to keep the work asymmetrical and balanced.” — Dave Pimentel
Wow I seriously need to do this, my work is too stiff.

This piece was inspired by the bewitching and bewildering work of Amei Zhao, aka seventypercentethanol, who consistently blows my mind here on Tumblr.
EDIT: Yep. Made a couple tweaks.
This is such a graceful piece! Thanks so much Bryan, just to see beautiful art like this makes me very happy, all the more so to know that you were inspired by my work!
When I was a kid, I was watching Hocus Pocus with the daughter of a family friend and she snipped the skin between my thumb and my index finger with a pair of scissors.
It’s still Halloween!
