Dan, I am in absolute awe of your talent...In my honest opinion, you have gone beyond what anyone else has ever accomplished in monster art, even Basil Gogos. The amount of detail in your work is staggering, but what really makes them for me is that your subjects actually seem alive.You make me feel like a bloody amateur every time I look at one of your amazing works. I just don't know how you do it.
Dan's talent is off the charts great, no doubt, but better than Basil? I think their style is different, so it may just come down to preference. I LOVE Dan's work for sure, I just have a tough time nudging Basil from the top spot. That being said, I could have my walls covered with both of their paintings, and I would never want to leave the house.JP
Gogos is a legend and I LOVE his work. Don't get me wrong. I just think Dan's is even better...art is subjective. It's just my opinion and not a slight to Gogos in any way. Who's the best Spider-Man artist? Some will say Ditko, some will say Romita, and some will say McFarlane. It all comes down to personal preference. My favorite painter of all time is Joe Jusko. I think he's the best period. His stuff just blows my mind.
If you notice, there is no value in the background that is as dark as the darkest value in the figures.
Thanks everyone.Yes I will be releasing most of my new paintings as limited edition prints.Daniel
