Wow, many of your works are pretty damn epic but this is magnificent!

Is it possible to credit you by putting this in a narrative video?

I love your art!
Years ago I found some of your works in the internet and
I was amazed that someone could draw like this!
I'm happy to find you on DA.

This reminds me a bit of Caspar David Friedrich.

I really love this painting, to me this is a very positive piece.
Somehow it just fits how I often feel.
JennyMoedKorpela Featured By Owner Dec 15, 2010  Professional Traditional Artist
Well, the others have all said it already, truly great and inspiring work. Funny to read about you in your books and your website, and then stumble upon you here at da...
Mariah-Bryant Featured By Owner Nov 3, 2010  Student Traditional Artist
Should I even comment....? Too late. I already have on the other pieces so why not?
I feel like this has a huge story behind it. (Not as much so as "Mount of the Immortals.") I am inclined to read what the words say... But I cannot! And I love that! You have left me trying to dive into the painting! X) Too wonderful.
How are you on the Internet? Are you not in a physical art gallery somewhere?? (I cannot travel to California but if you ever came to Washington D.C. to show off... I would be there like an annoying person... Hehe.)
Joy-Freak Featured By Owner Nov 3, 2010  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
When I see your art pieces, I wonder how big your imagination and fantasy is. It's fascinating and very lovely. I'm in love with this one, can't take my eyes from it.

Everything in your paintings is so huge huge and dramatic. Nothing is small or simple. Like in the best masterpieces od baroque artists'. :love:

I think I admired this before, yet forgot to hit the "Fave" button! It's a fantastic painting :)

Thank you, Steve. Steve Burg? Are you THE Steve Burg? Judging by what is in your gallery, it is you indeed. Man, I love your work. I didn't know you were here.
Very nice to meet you. I am working on the CG animated TV show of Transformers these days, and we were talking about your work with the other artists a few weeks ago. Very cool.
What are you working on these days?

Christophe Vacher
steve-burg Featured By Owner Sep 11, 2010  Professional Filmographer
It' nice to meet you too!

There are several "Steve Burgs" running around out there - and at least one of them is a criminal from what I can gather :lol:!

I think another friend of mine also works on Transformers - Jason Park - but I'm not sure if it's the CG show or some other area.

I just recently arrived at DA - but I should have done this years ago! It's a tremendous environment - and overwhelming to see all the art. It's also inspiring - once I recover from shock :eyepopping:

Right now I'm working on a game proposal for Disney. It's fun - I hope they proceed to make the game. It's challenging and fun to dream up cool ideas - the real trick - as we all know - is getting the business and marketing executives to say "Yes" :lol:
chvacher Featured By Owner Sep 12, 2010  Professional General Artist
Ah, yes, that's the trick indeed.
I know Jason very well. In fact, he is working right next to me. And he was one of the guys with whom we were talking about you a while ago -only in good terms, I swear :))
steve-burg Featured By Owner Sep 14, 2010  Professional Filmographer
Jason did some terrific work - it was a strange project ("Tiberium"). I'm really an artist, not so much a manager (which art directing is, to a large degree). Hopefully I behaved myself :lol: ! So many people put their all into that project, it's really a shame it fizzled...

Currently I'm working as an artist again :dance: - I think it better suits my temperament and skills. Say howdy to Jason for me :)
chvacher Featured By Owner Sep 15, 2010  Professional General Artist
I will.
Yes, you're right about art direction. At least that's what I was afraid of when I was offered the job for the first time. But I realized doing it in different contexts that it actually depends on many things. I got to do it in some really good circumstances (like on the movie "9", although our budget was pretty limited) and some less fortunate ones (like right now on Transformers, where we have no time and no budget).
But overall, I still like the fun of it all.
you're also right about the tools. Eventually, all that counts, really, is your eye and your brain. Timeless tools indeed.
steve-burg Featured By Owner Sep 15, 2010  Professional Filmographer
I did not realize you had worked on "9". I really love that film, it is wonderful looking as well as having a charming story.
Congratulations :D
chvacher Featured By Owner Sep 15, 2010  Professional General Artist
Thanks, Steve. Yes, I was art director on "9".

I love when I find awesome artists in completely random times. Honestly, truly amazing artwork. Do you only work in oil?
