This is a detective I designed for this project that a friend of mine asked me to help with. They're based after the Pink Panther designs that can be seen on the DVD box set if you've seen that.

A few months ago I was introduced to the art and portraits of John Howard Sanden. I recently purchased his book that explains how to paint a portrait (or anything for that matter) in 29 logical steps. I went ahead and gave it a try using Corel Painter. So this image is copied from his book, using the 29 steps.

I thought it would be fun to do character designs for 24 if it were animated. Here's Curtis Manning. You don't mess with Curtis.

About a year or so ago I decided to tackle the AFI top 100 list. I had seen about half of them and it took about six months to watch the other half. After watching the top 100, I decided to make my own top 100 +5 movie list. You might notice that trilogys or sequels are combined together as one. It's pretty much in order but it constatnly fluctuates. My friend Mark posted his top 100 a few weeks ago (we made them about the same time) and you can check his out on his blog. Just as he advised to his readers, I advise to my two readers, if you don't like my list go make your own....
