About a year or so ago, I pretty much stopped drawing. After a couple months, I began to experiment with some stylistic changes, and my style began to metamorphose in several different directions. It's been about a year now, and I've decided that out of all the directions I explored last year, this is the one I most enjoy and want to explore in my future comics work. This question is for all you comic book fans: after looking at the style of this piece, what genres would you see it working in?

I like it. IMO it would work great with any action comic. That style of comic/animation art is big right now. Thanks to Tartakovsky, a whole new fan base from the younger generation has been created. Check out the "Elektra: Everything Old is New Again" Graphic novel with that style of art in it. Sweet stuff. What kind of training do you have?

My art "training" is non-existent, but I've got a fair amount of experience. I wrote and drew fifteen issues of The Adventures of Dr. Mystery under the Hominid Press imprint (defunct), then worked as managing editor for Ape Entertainment (www.apecomics.com) for a couple years. I still do the occasional bit of freelance work, sometimes as a writer and/or editor, sometimes as a cartoonist. What got me posting this question is my belief that what I see when I look at my own work is NOT what others see when they look at it, so I wanted to get some opinions. LOL

Well, I think you should pursue it. I like the style. You should post some more of your stuff. I'd love to take a look at it.
