Subway riders, May 2006:
let me the first one to welcome you to the SKETCHBOOK section! (hopefully the first one :P )
the sketches looks good!
keep em coming!
That's a perfect place to do studies. Post some more so I can give you more analysis :P
hey dose, ncie sketches, can you bump the contrast up so we can see 'em better? Lookin' good!
-did you go to the cuse?
hurricane- thanks for the welcome. Nice to meet you.
klinesmoker- I'll post more as I get them done & scanned. Looking forward to your comments.
Oliver- I did in fact go to SU- how did you know? As for the images- I bumped up the contrast some- hopefully they're easier to see now.
Those are great. Great sense of volume. Keep posting!
theres something really..... nice in the top page of ya last post, wit four seated figures. loose, good gestural work. have you got any more finished stuff?
jens: actually, the images are fairly accurate on my screen- lately I've been sketching with a 2H and a very light touch. I have a naturally heavy hand so I'm trying to go the other direction for a while. Although, if you can't really read them properly I will definitely bump the contrast up.
in progress drawing of my fiancee- started on the subway one night and then kept going:
Joe's pub last night:
I like your name, first of all. I'm diggin on your sketches too. Keep it up! I really like the various sketches in the first image of your latest post. Good stuff. I'll be watching you...... in a non creepy way.
a quick ninja turtle sketch for a friend's birthday painting. We used to sit around and draw the turtles for *hours* when we were growing up together. With the movie coming out I thought it would be a good time to revisit the subject, for old time's sake...
A nice start to your SB! I like the life work. I'm assuming your subway sketches were quick... 5-10 mins? My own process is quite sloooow, so I'm always curious about the timeframes for quickies from life.
keep posting. very nice start man. cant really say much but... yea i lost where i was going with this. good me likes. friends good, fire baaad.
A portrait drawing:
reidaj: The subway drawings are anywhere from 1-10 minutes, depending on how long they're on the train and in relatively the same position (notice there are lots of sleeping people!).
Slav: thanks for looking, lol
A portrait drawing from David Kassan's class last night...
random & recent
Keep drawing and post more! nice stuff!
Random sketches. Will be posting a few more as I get them scanned...
A figure from a life drawing class a while ago...
A WIP I get to work on 5 minutes every 2 or 3 days:
i have visited your web site, and i must say your paintings are terrific. i mean i like them :) thanks for sharing.
your art is vary animated.
Beginning of a large sketchbook dump- mostly drawings from the subway, stuff from my head, and composition studies.
My new job leaves me little time to draw and paint. So I've gotten very efficient at drawing in short bursts of time. The subway to and from work is my prime drawing time- it's even gotten to the point where I'm happy when I miss the train because it means more drawing time!
Also been experimenting a lot with Cambiaso-like cube figures, which has actually filled in a huge gap for me in terms of proportion and foreshortening. Also very useful for developing compositions.
..and a few more
