Thanks for the comments guys. It has been a few since I updated but here is another 4x6 ft piece i am doing for my show. I was just contacted about doing a commision 4x6 piece of some kids so I am getting pumped about that.
So I just sold my "Hold Me" hands to the JB Hunt family! Very very exciting! and I am getting a new commission! Just thought I would let everyone know! Praise God! haha.
sick solid rendering!!!! man, thats awesome!! nothing real to crit, but how about more stuff from head, in order to see what you need to study and stuff!?
however, keep practicing!
I gotta ask, are you using only charcoal in those large format drawings (portraits)?
Thanks for the comments everyone. Ya I should try using harder brushes in dfferent areas thanks Factor. Jatherip thanks man. Hangman's tree, i usually just huge large chunks of charcoal and use pencil to sketch out the drawing. After the charcoal is done i usually decide if i want to do an acrylic wash over the drawing or put white paint in to pop things out but it is never too thick or anything.
"Pulling Down" 4x6 ft. charcoal.
And then a 4 ft. tall oil painting I did for my girlfriend's birthday.
Cacodaemonia thanks! I had a lot of fun doing it
Here is a little update. A smaller but still large charcoal drawing I am doing.
And I have been experimenting with charcoal shavings, spray bottles, squeegees, ink, sponges, water, and wax. The figures I got inspired from idiotapathy.
I really love all your charcoal works, especially because of the sizes .
Also great experiments, I think that people don't do that enough (and that's a shame because I find it very fun to do ).
What do you use for the black shadow parts in your works? Something like siberian chalk?
It looks like you had quite a bit of fun with those experiments. They turned out lovely.
The hands are looking great so far as well, can't wait to see how they turn out. How big is that one this time, if it is smaller than what you normally do? Lol, I bet it's still a pretty big drawing.
here is the final! 28x48''
seriously. Why are you a 4 star artist??? hurry up and get to 5 stars.
My observational skills may be great but i said nothing about my drawing skills

Thanks for the comments guys, and I will definitely be adding more experimentation in my pieces.
Here is the drawing finished.
And a sneak peak of the show set up for tomorrow.
I will add some later.
wow... you're certainly coming along in here! congratulations on the show! and the last drawing is beautiful.. i'd love to see you doing something that isn't referenced from someone else's photograph though.. just to be a pain
thanks amarryth, i am completely stopping from using other references directly. i don't like it at all. i forgot to mention that the last piece was a picture i took of my girlfriend and i.
karein thanks! i ended up selling 4/7 of my pieces so I am pumped about that!
Here is some new stuff going on!
mark making using ink and paint on plastic bag and smearing the linoleum on it. and then using a squeegee to move things around.
dipping paper into a tub of water with ink in it.
i made a large sheet of homemade paper i blended and put this together. its an old picture but its fun working on some rough surface.
again, dipping the paper into the tub. i really liked how this one turned out.
an abstract figure i made with ink and acrylic on linoleum
Really beautiful abstract work! You seem to have a knack for making interesting shapes and textures. What did you make the handmade paper from? I adore making paper.
