I've become very interested by some pieces I've seen which might be neo-traditional. I know very, very little about this style, though, so I was wondering if some folks could be so kind as to post information about the style as well as a bunch of examples?
I've done the whole Google images thing, but that's only as reliable as the labels attached to photos and I ended up with a bunch of weird stuff.
Thanks!

Oh, hot damn, but there's some sweet work at these links.
I'm falling in love with a style I didn't know existed.

So, let me know if I'm getting it: it looks like neo-trad is really about old-school traditional art, but updated with finer needlework, some brighter inks, and a bit of a busier style, but while staying true to that old school aesthetic. Am I right?

Edited to add: there also seems to be a kind of a mystical darkness to many of the images, also. Is that also a hallmark of the style?

Have you had work done with Karl? I'm really interested in pursuing some work with him, I dig his style.
