On the River Styx. From the fantasy art instructional book: "Sword and Sorcery", which I wrote and illustrated back in 2006 for Watson Guptil publications.

This is......AWSOME!!!!!!!!! It's so morbid(in an awsome way)! :D I LOVE IT! :D:D:D:D:D:D My favorite part is the horns on the front of the boat. They're so cool-looking! Also, the ferryman's robe looks so real. This is just so cool!

Did you draw this from the old Clash of the Titans movie? Love that movie! :D

Thank you so much!! I am a fan of Clash of the Titans. That movie came out when I was in 5th grade and it was just wonderful. So of course it is hard for me to draw something like this and not be inspired. But of course I tried to add my own touches. Thanks for your comments!

It portrays a very realist vision of Charon, the ferrier, and the river Styx "Hate". This is going to my faves.

This is a very interesting way of drawing the ferry man of the River Styx. Very original, and wonderfully executed.

I really like the fantasy stuff you've been posting lately. Can't wait to see that new book!

I gotta ask, what is that background? If it is the Simi Valley, remind me never to go back to Southern California!

Well thank you! But I just finished work on the Fantasy book last week, after working on it for 6 months solid, so I won't be doing much more of that subject matter for a long time. If anything, I am bursting with excitement to finally be rid of Fantasy and free to get back to Horror!

I don't live in Simi Valley, although I used to, a few years ago. These days I live in Thousand Oaks, which is one town over... and a lot nicer in my opinion. Now you know why I moved.

I lived in El Segundo for a while and have a friend in Burbank now. So I know there are some nice areas around LA. Obviously not the Simi Valley however. :)

Simi Valley is not really such a bad place. The only reason I sometimes rip on it, is because the years I lived there were excruciatingly tough for me. Those were my depressing, poverty-stricken, lonely, malnourished, "no-hope-in-sight" years. My Simi Valley memories are almost entirely dismal, but not because of the town itself, more because of my own personal conditions and experiences at the time. For a town that is 50% rich folks and 50% white trash it's not so bad.

People keep telling me this, about not being able to view the "Full View" version of this one pic, and I keep uploading new versions, and people still keep telling me this. It's super weird. And apparently it's just this one image. Super duper weird.

what if you just totally upload it as a brand new deviation?
maybe somehow that particular deviation is cursed?

...given the image content, it could be a possibility!!

Please do so I can copy it to my harddrive. :)

I have my preferences set so every image is full view.

So if I had not read the comments, I would have just assumed the image was broken.

That is truly bizarre. I've had the opposite situation, having looked at it on 2 different computers and it works fine. Plus Dave tells me its fine on his computer... Maybe it's a Mac vs. PC thing??

I was wondering when we were going to see some of your kickass work again, Bryan. =) Awesome job, the hue of oranges and reds combined with the brisk colors of the bones adorning the boat (and on its passenger) gives it an extraaura of creepiness.

Faved.
