I hope this works... technology hates me.

Oh my! Excellent stuff! Welcome to CA
Yay welcome to CA!! Amazing amazing post! Love those ideas!
More more more!
I have a sketchbook!
Hey...I sort of really like the style you've got going on here.
That one looks awesome. I'm diggin the colors and gesture of it.
Its kinda difficult to crit your work cuz its a unique style...so all I can say is keep posting cuz I'd like to see more of it. Could you also try and upload a higher quality image of that last pic?
Fascinating. My favorites are clown.gif and rawbig.gif (why in gif instead of jpg? you're losing colors with gif)
the first two and the last two are amazing. You really have your style down. very individual. cant wait to see some more
grue: Thanks! Been here before though, but rather use my own name (former fixx...)
alicelefay: thank you
Pyroclasm00: thanks, yeah, I've always drawn different than I paint. Would love to upload a bigger image, unfortunately the painting no longer exists, and that copy is all I have. Sad but true. Maybe one day, when it doesn't hurt (yes, big ouchies) I'll repaint it.
Nekromisantrop: Yeah, PS is really rather kicking my butt at the moment. Used to only do BW with it, lol. Time to learn new things.
Leo Ki: clown seems to be a fave for some reason... Gif is all I've got on that one. :/
Stephen Mason: Thanks how bout this? WIP = repeated headdesk.
Had to begin using PS to paint since well, it's a bugger to paint when it's -10 in your studio... Tips? Ideas? Crits? It's so much easier pushing anatomy in oils :/

The last one looks too flat in some places. It has some confusing depth and modeling issues. This painting is gorgeous-- great, rich colors, and pretty inventive technique. Only part I don't like is that dull-looking leg. The picture really deserves to be posted at a higher quality though!
Some of your work reminds me of Phil Hale or Jenny Saville in the brush strokes and gestures, so I'm guessing you're a fan of one of them.
I love jenny saville, can see the similarities but they are still very individual images. i love you dude. lol. They are so lush. hope you dont mind i added you on msn. Cant really give you any advice cause im in love. you can do nothing wrong lol. x
Wow, your style's unique
I like your pics, they feel like they have a hidden meaning behind all these...kinda surreal, if I may.
For the last pic, I like it! Although if I may critique, the breasts seemed to be placed a little too below and in the end makes it looked too droopy, but if you really go for that then they looked too...coney, I suppose. But well, with this kind of pictures it's hard to guess what're you going to it's up to you again, I guess.
Good luck! XD
I really like your style. Digging post #8. I just recently started using PS and Painter as well. My scanner broke and I don't own a camera now. Only way to keep studying and get critiques. I'll keep an eye on this.
The first step - especially for young people with energy and drive and talent, but not money - the first step to controlling your world is to control your culture. To model and demonstrate the kind of world you demand to live in. To write the books. Make the music. Shoot the films. Paint the art.
eminkey2003: thanks. We'll see how it turns out, I'm leaving it alone after this for a bit. Re: Hale and Saville, I love both. Also had a few good teachers who emphaisized importance of figure work. Still learning though...
Stephen Mason: Ah so that's you! Thought I'd forgotten another name of someone I know for a moment. No problem at all. (And everyone can do something wrong, just give it enough time!)
Trefle: And here I was aiming for less plasticky! lol no, just kidding. Thanks, will check that
Nubb: straight over the edge, headfirst and DUI
IMBass: By any means necessary I say. It's paint or die.
ok, it's gonna go rest for a bit now.
random stuff from random folders...
