I felt like this when I was working in Minneapolis in the winter! Love the teeth and the glowing blue eyes. Great work!!

Great one. Love the soul patch and nasty teeth. The ear too. Heh heh.

SWEET! The icicles growing off his face are excellent. Love that touch of breath-condensation too.

Love his hair!! Nice Ryan!

sarah said...

Really really nice. I love all those jaggedy teeth and his sort of super-hero type outfit with the J :)

Adam Ford said...

Great indeed!

Dave McClellan said...

I like the Jakk Frost heavy metal font. But I think it needs to say something evil when you turn it upside down.

Tim Bye said...

Fantastic!

Shawn said...

UM said...

Lovely work! Looks effortless. Very inspiring.

Hey Ryan,
I picture a hard rockin' European metal band and he's the front man. They rock out hard and then he freezes everyone.....and maybe eats them. Great post!

Sam Nielson said...

I already commented on this, but it's so great it deserves a double post!

It's ice cold in Jersey right now and this art is even cooler. The lighting is totally legitimate.

cdeboda said...

adrian said...

I like the creepy son way more. I live in the freezing cold and represents the feeling a whole lot more! EVIL and CREEPY.

Ryan Wood said...

Pat--This one started out as pencil sketch, then tweaked and painted using Corel Painter 9.5.
