Sean McClain- Thanks. It was 'based' on a photo my parents took in Queens Town. I changed the composition, moved the whole scene around, added rocks in the foreground and added that sunstrike bit.
I needed the reff for the perspective on the shed, and also the colour scheme, which was SOOOOOOO bright and rich!
raminafshari- Haha cheers
A failed self portrait. A did the full thing, but this eye is the only thing that worked. 2 hours in mirror.
"I'm gonna give you only one reply, I know not who I am.
But I talk in the mirror to the stranger that appears.
Our conversations are circles... Always one sided, nothing is clear.
Except we keep coming back to this meaning that I lack.
He says the choices were given
...And now, you must live them
Or just not live,
But do you want that?"
Cheers everyone, enjoy the rest of your weekend
Pencils are really great man, Love the cleanliness and good line weights.
With the digital stuff id watch out for using a small sized brush too much, in some places things look a little scratchy sort of like pencil shading. If your doing that it needs to be more deliberate and clear IMO.
The last painting is nice though, the eye seems to have such depth inside it. Its real nice. Keep it up!
what you call a "failure" is probably something that would make the rest of us salivate hahaha.. well whatever you do don't get discouraged, as Bobby Chiu always says, "Punch frustration in the face!! Because if you're frustrated it just means you're on the edge of something great."
And hey I love Bright Eyes too!
Matt that sp is fcking sick, i luv the way you handled the rendering, it's not overly done and not under, just right mate, excellent! plus good focus on doing the eyes, definitely the part of the portrait that should be spent a good amount of time and definitely u hit that!
wow, you grown! I step away for what feels like a week and now everyone is making sick art. I really like your resent stuff Matt. The house on last page looks really good along with the rest. but that one just grabs me. I love the greens in it and the sky. Good job mate! cheers.
hello Matt, hope you're doing well! I enjoy coming in here and looking at your growth: constant reminder that I need to get my finger out a bit. Plus your pictures just make me pretty happy (I'm enjoying your lovely fluid ink lines). Top notch.
What an overwhelming lesson to all artists! Be not afraid of absurdity; do not shrink from the fantastic. Within a dilemma, choose the most unheard-of, the most dangerous, solution. Be brave, be brave! - Isak Dinesen
Man, you've got some great shit in here. And you've got a really versatile range of skill too. Your sketching, painting, rendering, value and color are pretty badass.
Only thing I saw to crit so far is some of those hands studies look like they could use a bit more structure to them.
In any case, epic work. Keep it up, you're definitely gonna make a splash!
PHATandy- Thanks bro! Yeah I do try and get that pencil look, but I'll make it more obvious. Cheers
Marlisa- Thank you Marlisa! Very pleased you like

I'm updating my portfolio folder, and it really was pretty gray and dark. So some more coloured pencil today:Thankies peoples
Hey there, I have to say those coulored pencils look amaaaazing! Especially the last one cought my eye! Is it weird to say those clouds are cute and I want to cuddle them?
Aaaanyway... I like the characters hair as well..
And I should really browse through your entire sketchbook sometime.. Should take a while
Thanks for the inspiration, keep it up!
nice pencils, inks, paints, everything! Very well rounded sketchbook. I like the self-portrait, and even though I don't know about the likeness it looks nicely painted.
Respect for getting to 70 pages too!
