to fill one out too: [link]

Edit/everyone seems so excited by barlowe being there, but I always thought he was fairly mainstream? Horror manga should have probably had the bigger image, and Norman Saunders should have been bigger than he already is too, but it was tough fitting things together!

That one is "The Bug Boy" by Hideshi Hino, who specializes in stories about little children undergoing horrific, disturbing mutations, diseases, curses and other fates worse than death.

Cool, I didn't know Barlowe was that important to you.

I belong to a group of artists influenced by him: [link]

It was mostly that I was given the Guide to Extraterrestrials at a very very young age, and that was the first book I ever had that treated fictional creatures as having lifelike biology, introducing me to the whole idea of world building :)

Then I got Expedition when it first came out and wore it out! I wish I could find it, since it's worth so much now, but my copy's cover and spine were ruined and pages starting to fall out so I figure if I ever find it I might as well just frame my favorite full-page paintings.

Somebody stepped on my copy of Expedition just days after I bought it, creasing the cover. I wish I'd bought a new copy then, because by the time I decided to replace it it was out of print. :(

As I've probably said several times before before, Expedition and the 2 guides have influenced my art and writing profoundly. If I'd never read those, my gallery would be an incredibly different place.

They did a passable job of exploring darwin with the animal planet special. But They missed out on the vibrance of some of the locales, like the rain forest.

Also its kind of obvious when you look for it but barlowe's work has been in alot of pop-culture movies recently.

They also seemed to pick the most conventional and earthlike species to focus on. Plus, the special barely mentioned or credited Barlowe. It repeatedly referred to a "team of scientists" as having conceived it, when all they did was directly lift his art.

Yeah I noticed that, but he seems inclined to not seek lime-light, you have to look hard for the references that credit him on films like Blade 2, Hellboy, Hellboy 2 and Avatar.

Most of the life forms on pandora have a very barlowe anatomy and design to them. You can spot it if you look.

Alien Planet is great fun (I bought the D.V.D.), but didn't live up to my imagination. Using robot explorers instead of a human cuts out a while dimension the book had, and the downscaling of the flora and fauna (especially the Grove-Back) irked me.
