I've been looking and drooling over PocketOwl's deviant art for a few days; namely because its gorgeous. To think we are the same age makes me weep salty internal tears.
Nice old cartoon-inspired work, surely influenced by todays artists of the Kricfalusi persuasion. When will his reign of terror end?! Hopefully, never.
More deviant's who's work pokes up similar aesthetics are Sibsy and Gabe of Penny-Arcade.
I really REALLY like Gabe's use of colours, gradients and composition; obviously developed from years of constant practice but I have a fondness moreso for Sibsy's work as her style reminds me of her own; albeit much more controlled and.. good.
