Post your Horkey mini masterpieces

General art-related discussion.

Postby TheThirdEye on Thu Apr 15, 2010 12:55 am

So one of my most anticipated tubes showed up today. You know, the ones with your name and address in huge perfect serif letters across it. I was going to share them in the "sketch" thread, but seriously, Aaron should have his own dedicated sketch/paint/embellished/custom thread. Aaron is in a league of his own when it comes to this. They are like mini masterpieces, hence the thread title. Many of the early Horkey posts in the "sketch" thread have broken image links anyway. So lets see what you've got. I know there are some amazing ones out there. I'll get it started...

ISIS/Baroness Blue Tour AP /18 "The Way is Gone"

Image

Genghis Tron Steel Grey variant /4

Image

This little guy hiding behind the letters has seriously small detail. I should have put a dime in the picture for reference. Many eyed horned creatures with an x carved in their foreheads are awesome!
Image

OTA silver on red variant /14

Reminds me of the one that was done on the Orange OTA (Ben's?), except this is the under belly of the ray.
Image

The highlights are kind of hard to photograph. This was the best I could do.

Horkey has the best drawing chops of any living artist.

Awesome. I too, one day, will get one of those tubes.

You should post pics of the whole posters, just for reference.

Thanks guys and gals! I'll get some some pics of the whole posters up tonight for reference. My girl called me at work yesterday and said you got another tube, but this one has your name beautifully written in huge letters. As soon as she said that, I knew who it was from. I didn't get much work done after that. :D

I think that would be ok, as long as the owners are ok with it, and they are mentioned as the owners. The more pics posted the better. Lets see 'em.

Wow, those are incredible. Forgive my ignorance but do you request Aaron to do these or does he do them on random prints? Either way his skill is insane.
