    Excellent stuff, Gobi! They all have a great, professional quality! I really want an Indy IV desktop background, but I'm having a tough time deciding which one would work best. :p

    I hope to see more stuff from you soon!

    *goes back to brainstorming on some Indy IV art of my own*

    Alas, I have no photoshop skills to speak of BUT, I did do these sketch card samples in hopes of being included on the upcoming Indiana Jones Heritage collector's card set. I used Copic markers and colored pencils.

    And...my hopes came true and I've been invited to draw 56 cards for the set!

    Another dream come true. :D

    Had to make a new poster with the fantastic new promo photos and here it is. I couldn't decide between blue or red so I did both. I have higher-quality PNG files that I'll upload as soon as I can.

    Happy holidays, guys!

    Sorry if this sounds like I'm pimping myself (nice way to put it), but I wanted to invite you to take a look at my online art gallery, which contains several INDIANA JONES pieces.

    http://adammcdaniel.com/art_gallery.htm

    Feel free to give me honest feedback, comments, etc. etc... Thanks so much and take care!

    Adam

    My attempt at an INDY IV teaser. I was trying to guess how the character would look aged 65. At the time, giving Indy a beard seemed appropriate...but why does everyone think that this was intended as a mean spirited joke??? Sure, the guy has grey hair, but I never intended to make Indy look ancient! How could I know Harrison Ford would end up looking so fit when he got around to donning the fedora again?

    Love this one.

    If you don't mind I'll go ahead and close your other thread so you can just post your artwork here.

    Some people think that's a mean spirited joke? hehe OKEE DOKEE.
    He had a beard in The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles, why not at some other point? :D

    Good to see you here, Adam! :D Love your work.

    As I said in the other thread, your work is amazing! Thanks for posting it here! :)

    And yea, I agree with Leah. I definitely don't view that Indy portrait as a joke. It's an honest interpretation of the character at that age and I think you did a great job on it! ;)

    Gobi, Paramount should use that phrase as a marketing hook:

    ADVENTURE NEVER GROWS OLD


    That is BEYOND awesome!

    Thanks. Taglines can be just as important as the image itself.

    I've been trying, albeit slowly, to get my foot in the door in the art world. Until now I've had a few sporadic commissions here and there, and while I get compliments, I never really thought of myself as being good enough for a "professional" career. I'm happy to say, then, that one of my INDIANA JONES pieces is going to be used for an upcoming magazine article about the fourth "Indy" film!

    The good news is that the publication is expected to have a print run of just under 100,000 copies -- the widest audience my artwork has ever had beyond the web.

    The bad news is that you'll have to visit Brazil to get a copy.

    [image=http://adammcdaniel.com/McDaniel_Indy4.jpg]

    So...keep your eyes peeled... (or, as they say in Spanish, "estar pendiente de"...or, as they say in Portuguese -- crap, I can't find an English-to-Portuguese translator.) ...for the current end of the year special issue of Revista da Semana, your source for all things Brazil, save Terry Gilliam's film of the same name. (You should check that one out, too. It's one of my favorites.)

    Now...if only I can get the editors at TOPPS to consider my work for a few of those darn INDY sketch cards!!!

    You and me both. Although, I guess it would help if I finish out my last semester in school first. :p

    Congrats on the professional gig, Adam! Well deserved and I'm sure it's such a wonderful feeling for you to finally have your work published! I wish you the best of luck with your career and here's to seeing more of your work soon! :)

    It's only a month (!) after I posted my most recent artwork up that I realized the head is just a tad bit too big in proportion to the body -- the result of trying to best match (or so I thought) the dimensions of Harrison Ford's head to the model I used. Not one to abandon a painting until I feel truly "done" with it, I played around for hours in Photoshop to correct the problem, shrinking Indy's head by about 4% - 5% and painting in the areas to mask where the hat's outline used to be. Look closely and you'll see the difference -- especially with the vines above Indy's head, and the branches to the right of his hat.

    You know, that sounds very familiar. I also have the tendency to mess around with my artwork until it looks perfect in my eye. I've always been the perfectionist when it came to my art.

    As for the updated painting, it was a very subtle change and I probably wouldn't have noticed it without the side by side comparison, but it definitely does make a difference. You also did a very nice job with the editing process. There's not a single hint that I can spot that you moved his entire head and filled in the blank space. Kudos for that! :)

    I thought I'd share a little something I've been working on. I initially wanted to do this as a stand-alone portrait, but after seeing the film, I quickly decided I want to add onto it. This is the first part of a poster I'm doing for KotCS. Done in graphite, acrylic and gouache.
