    Default John Calimee Art (Image Intensive)

    John Calimee sent some scans of work he did during the summer. He was working on one specific thing and it gave him the urge to do a few more. There's these here and John says that if anyone wants to see more then just shout.
















    Any of you artistic types want to ink, colour etc, please feel free, maybe post the results here.

    Fiorello: Well, I don't know about that...
    Driftwood: Now what's the matter?
    Fiorello: I no like-a the second party, either.
    Driftwood: Well, you should've come to the first party. We didn't get home 'til around four in the morning... I was blind for three days!

    Whoa!....I didn't like John C's artwork on Alpha Flight...but now I realize it must have been the penciler muddying the pencils. Those are absolutely gorgeous. Sorry John.

    Dana, John admits that he wasn't ready for a gig like AF, but I gotta agree about how maybe the inking didn't do him any favours, plus the colouring during his tenure didn't actually set my world alight. I'm not sure how many more he did during the summer, but if I get any more scans I'll post them here.

    I'll pass that along tonight. He did have a message which I posted elsewhere, but have bought it over here.

    Best news here is reading Mike Oeming is taking over the chores of Alpha, well Omega Flight. How cool is that! And he posts to the forum??? Say hi to Mike! I'm a big fan. I did a few (very few) ghost layouts for Mike back in his self publishing days. The little guy with the big guns. -He didn't know it but I was fond of calling him 'Mini-Hulk' back in the day. -A great guy. Talented as hell. And he's leading the life I always dreamed of. The bastard.

    You may quote all that.

    People undervalue inkers. A good inker is worth their weight in gold. If you're not inking your own stuff, you're gambling on the skill of someone else, and that can be a nerve-wracking thing. The right inker can actually make your art stronger, but in the hands of someone who just doesn't get it the very best, clearest of pencils can go to Hell in a handbasket.

    Very nice backgrounds on the shots. Detailed backgrounds take me too damned long. Lovely work.

    Those are some very sweet pencils Mr. John Calimee has done. I would love to see a AF vs. Llan the Sorcerer pin-up, (hint hint). Thanks for sharin' those with us Del.

    EDIT TO ADD: Yeah, DB thanks for sharin'.

    You are a stupid seal with a small rooster. Translate that into french and you'll get it.

    He's really good these days; but I can still see the 'old' Calimee in there, in the Alpha and Thor pics.

    It's in the poses, I think.

    Man, I wish he'd drawn like that back then!

    Come back, John Calimee! All is forgiven!
