havent posted anything or updated my site in a reeeeeeeally long time...im in the process of compiling all my new work into digital format right now so i can entirely update my site.
so tonight i scanned a bunch of pages from my sketchbook....i still have another 30 or 40 more pages to scan in, plus about 75 self portraits that ive been doing daily (thanks for all the inspiration android)
and then i have tons of stuff that wont fit on the scanner so that will all come soon...
i guess ill just use this thread to post stuff periodically as i compile more...
okay here we go, a few of these go back a few months, but most of them were done in the past month or two

Glad you've found the time to post. Nice work on the faces and characterization. Any of these becoming paintings?

Pardon Me..While I go Die...
Seriously Wes. You have something great there. I'd like to know where you are going to be directing your work towards. I would assume you are caught in between Fine Arts and Illustration to pay the rent.
I would love to see a very crisp/tight finished piece.
I can't wait to get my new stuff up. I should have my knew site in Dec.
Except the ones you said you used photorefs... were all of those came out of your mind? or there are some life drawing too?
man nice to see some new stuff from you, ur use of pencil is amazing keep it up.
these are very nice. i love all of them

deth jester- thanks man
joshuathejames- hey thanks man, yeah i tend to work more on my fine art stuff and do freelance concept work on the side and this sort of stuff in my sketchbook. more finished work? yeah its coming, as soon as i get some photographs of it all...keep in mind this is just my sketchbook
jaku- thanks, and yes, unless otherwise stated, everything is drawn from my head or from life. there are only a few that have stuff done from ref
gasmask, rudecorleone,sammy- thanks guys
ericdee- heheh thanks, i dont even drink coffee though
roger, danvd- thanks
gekitsu- well all of these posted so far are right out of my sketchbook which is 8.5" x 11"..letter size. i guess for working on large scale drawings though, the best advice i have is to just tackle it and start working away at whatever youre doing. it might take a while for something to form, but dont give up. try using charcoal or paint or something that you can cover large areas quickly or broadly and then refine from there. also dont get caught up ion little details at first.
fipse, landmate, endregan, donkeyslayer- thanks guys
lungbug- hey man, thanks, your sketchbook thread is looking great, hope to see some more
capt. harlock- heh yeah he does look a bit like ron jeremy. oh yeah those two star wars guys are actually from a picture of me and my friend on halloween a couple weeks ago. im wearing a c3po helmet and a button up shirt and black tie. my buddy doan was wearing a nien nunb mask heh.
metalwinds- thanks man, those two drawings of the girl were probably around half an hour to an hour each..? im not sure...she posed for a while for each
always a treat to catch some latest work from wes! hey thanks for the dump, these are fantasticly sweet. =)
hehe i know where some ispiration came from wicked. ~_~
holy shite Wess, your a monster, cant wait to see your reflections.
what up wes?
loved your rendition of me, and... just about everything else thats up there. but i'm not gonna say anything now that i haven't said before, so i'm just gonna save my time and sum it all up under GOD DAMN....
dude... how long have i been waiting for this? too long.. its sunshine on a cloudy day! peace
