I have a question for you, do you want me to submit a little messy and rather unfinished works like this one here on dA? I usually submit stuff like that only on Tumblr. But then, comparing amount of followers here and Tumblr, difference is rather big. So i thought you guys would also like to see drawings like this, which are not exactly sketches, but not finished either (: or you'd like dA account for finished works only?

So yeah, let me know!

But for now i'll leave Ian here (:

This is awesome.
I love this art direction!

i really don’t mind what kinds of work you post because it’s all awesome and makes me wish it could just pick up my tablet and do digital art again!

Im not sure how I found your artwork but I think I must have been looking for references for my own characters (who are also in a band) and Ian appeared. Which is kind of spooky because Ian looks EXACTLY how I imaged one of my characters to look. <3

The only major differences between the characters are their ages; Vincent is at least 10 years older and he’s on a mission to be the most tattooed member of his band, apparently. Oh and he’s also the bassist/frontman.

If they ever met each other it would be a shock, Vincent would surely have a mini freak out, but it’d be hilarious for everyone else to watch. 

I never posted pictures of my characters on here because I haven’t drawn them for what feels like a million years (I wouldn’t dream of posting those older pictures now because I’d cringe too much) and partially because it would feel like I was copying of your work (which I just wouldn’t do and we also have a similar art style) and I wouldn’t want to tread on your toes or cause other people to go mad because our characters are like identical twins almost! 🤷🏻‍♀️ 

Keep up the great work, even if it is unfinished, it still looks amazing. :)

Your style is a cool mix of cartoonish yet realistic.

Personally, I love not quite finished pieces. They have a certain comfortable feeling, for lack of a better word. So please! Post away!

no its because it shows that every human is not perfect in every way but they can still be great.

I have just now discovered you and I am amazed!
you have amazing talent! I hope to be just like this someday!
practice makes perfect right?
I think this man is handsommeeee, to bad he isn't real 8D lol!
I think I will go click that watch button and go creeping in your gallery, hope you don't mind!
And I think that posting everthing you do like rough sketches and such is an amazing idea, I have been thinking of doing the same.
Can't wait to see more!
