Group Info

PLEASE READ:
This group is not an official group, just a fan club made by a fan. This group is a fanclub for the sci-fi and fantasy illustrated comics magazine, Heavy Metal.

SUBMISSION GUIDELINES:
Fanart of other subjects will not be accepted. So no Marvel or DC(unless the same comic or character has been published in Heavy Metal Magazine as well).I will also not accept just any fantasy artwork.

This is not a fantasy art club, there are plenty of those groups on dA already. Unless I see Heavy Metal as an obvious inspiration, I will not accept general fantasy/sci-fi/horror pieces.

This is also not a group devoted to Heavy Metal music. I won't accept fanarts of real-life Heavy Metal musicians, and will reject any submissions without question.

Apparently Milo Manara's exclusive Spider Woman cover is getting a lot of buzz from the pseudo feminist crowd. And this amateur's got the gall to paint over a Manara piece.

I personally have never been a huge fan of Manara's subject matter, but I more than respect him for his work and his ability, and to see amateurs critiquing how a master of 50+ years does his work and telling him how to do his job brings my piss to a boil.

All in all, it's Marvel's fault for hiring an artist whose work and subject matter is inappropriate for a female superhero cover.

The ignorance and disrespect from this crowd both infuriates and depresses me. Join in on the discussion!

Thanks for requesting "Devil and the Details". I'm a bit confused, though, as to why it's in the folder "Inspired by Heavy Metal", since it wasn't.

We choose pieces that evoke the imagery of Heavy Metal magazine, regardless if it was initially inspired by or not. Hope that clears things up!

Hello,

The "Inspired by Heavy Metal" folder is a catchall folder for outstanding artworks that do not exactly fit in the other folders yet share the same wondrous passion, color and design of the overall astounding world class fine artwork of Heavy Metal Magazine. We are honored to be allowed to share your artwork as an example of similar excellent artwork in the style of the outstanding genre of the magazine.

It is probably the best compliment that I could give to you to say your artwork is in the same class of the HMM published artists. The published artists in HMM are literally some of the best artists in the world. Your artworks are in that same class of excellence. We appreciate and admire your artistic endeavors.

Kindly,

Grant

Ah, I see. Makes sense in that context, and thank you for the explanation. More than that, though, thank you for the nice compliment and for inviting my work into your group. I'm grateful for the compliment. Please do feel free to request other works if/as you see fit. I don't do commissions (my work is a gift to viewers), and specialize primarily in bondage work, but I do occasionally entertain requests in my genre featuring my girls.

Thank you again. I'm flattered and grateful to you for the mention/invite.
