great work, carl. Are these practice still or comissions?

Carl Knox said...

Folio pieces mostly, to show the whole range on my awesomeness. Not only am I incredibly good looking and humble too, I can also paint enviros and characters. :D

I saw your Melbourne Sketchgroup thread over at Conceptart.org and thought I should give you guys a heads up.

Read this:

Marty Howe, the guy who posted on your thread is BAD NEWS. I'm not kidding in the slightest. I don't have a vendetta against this guy but based on my own personal experience and the stories other people have told, I thought I should give you fellow artists a fair warning. I had the unpleasant experience of taking one of his art tests. The feedback from other people who have taken his tests is well documented in this tsumea thread. So it's not just me who has spoken up about this dodgy guy but several others as well.

Bahahahhaha. Oh man. I just recieved an email from him today! He sure does get around.

I requested to meet up with him at his studio to talk about up coming 'projects' he is supposedly working on. Needless to say he replied: "unable to continue...". Ha!

For the record Marty runs www.figureheadstudios.com.au and it is advised other artists out there refuse to do work with him also!

I'm just reading his latest comments he left you over at conceptart.org

What a TOTAL DOUCHEBAG!

You should report him to the moderators over there and have him kicked out!

Seriously, who does he think he is???!!!!

I had to laugh when I read that he's "yet.to.move.into.an.office.space." which in other words means: "I'm still down in my mom's basement circle-jerking to my imaginary teammates who work for my supposed legitimate company"

Prick.

If it makes you feel any better, Carl, I got the same "You delivered a ridiculous lazy concept that looks like it was drawn by a 12 year old" response when I did his stupid ass "test".

To sum it up he's a delusional, egotistical douchebag.

Carl Knox said...

Cheers mate, I appreciate the support!

Seems everyone I've been in contact with has something bad to say about him.

Francisco Martins said...

Carl Knox said...

Hey Chase, thanks mate. Love your characters!

Hey Tel, keep pumping out that work mate! Your discipline keeps me goin'.. makes me feel bad if I'm not drawing. :D

Chase Standley said...

Hey Carl,

Thanks for the post. How did you like conceptart.org's online school? did it help you? Can you actually go to the physical school or is it just online?

thanks again
Chase
