  • Greaat!!

  • These are really cool, I love his technique.

  • Hey, Erik’s my brother! Awesome to see this show up in the morning rss feed! I love how he loads so many shades on his brush, so a single stroke carries a lot of information…

  • I loves these, especially the first one. The texture is unreal!
