I love your figure drawing studies, and your portrait paintings, those are very very good. Also your imaginative, drawings are really cool as well, have some inspiring stuff in there, keep at it, your only getting better.
And holy shit man, you have soo much more work, since yesterday, i think anyhow...i never saw it before then. fuckin wicked man, really great stuff. Good job with all these studies. Very good studies, and again, awsome work. Keep going! by the way im in your group if you didnt know.
Followed the academy links to your SB. Great stuff. Especially like your charcoal SP and oil woman WIP series (prefer the first one though) your colour work is cool esp. skin tones. It looks like you've improved lots since the beginning (what I'm hoping for in mine!).
ive got some major virus's and spyware on my comp right now, so i wont be able to post for a few days. what a coincidence(sp), the day after i post in the ssg thread heh. i am replying at a friends so i dont have time to reply to everyone. sorry, ill try to update as soon as possible, ive got tons of stuff to post too.

It looks like the SSG groups have been tossed around, which can be a good thing. I really like the amount of improvement since the early posts. I haven't heard what's been happening school-wise, though. One thing I would say is that it doesn't seem like there's a lot of variation in your shadows. It certainly makes the light seem stronger, but shadow depth adds to the overall depth.
Hey, just wanted to say how much I've been enjoying your sketches and everyone else's on here. I've been looking at sketchbooks for several hours per day. It's really cool watching people improve.
Yours was especially neat because it didn't go up all that much in skill-- maybe a bit, and then WHAM, the multiportrait color explosion on this page just floored me. You have improved so much. I am especially loving your shading style, very interesting and moody.
well, its been a looooong time since my last big update. iim gonna to try to catch up to what i am doing now. so theres gonna be tons of old stuff, but i will try to put them in somewhat of a timeline.
nice work and uve come along way.... rembember me? lol i remember u from sf... i need to go to another ws right away next one i swear... lol yea i just finished hs.... college in a few months.. took a semester off.... anyways ill be back .. as long as u update! cheers
burning eyes-yeah, i remember you. ahhh i wanna go to another ws soooo bad, SF was a great experience.
my experience at college was really eye opening i believe i grew alot while i was there, and ill be headed back sooon
while i was there i finally got to work with live models, so the majority of the figures in these pics are from live models.
sketchbook stuff at college
ill be going through my sketchbook soon and linking more of the images so its not such a big dl
gugg- i cant wait to get back to ATL, i miss my CATL fix.
ken-yeah, im still hear and still breathin. the scavenger hunt was absolutely crazy man, from ten in the morning till two at night non stop. you should have been there man. still catching up with stuff i should have some new stuff up reeaal sooon.
but for now heres some more college stuff....
gesso and ink experiment
drew these from previous sketches from live models
i cant figure out why the title of my thread hasnt changed, ive changed title of my first post and nothings happening. and suggestions???
more college sketchbook stuff
fav page from day at the zoo
a sketch from BODIES exh. in ATL
one of my final projects i made. i think its much better in person, kinda hard to see in pics.
heres a final project, series of portraits i did of friends and family. they are all between 4 and 5 feet tall or long. some of the colors didnt come across so well in the photos, some are a little too warm or cool. all done from photo, though i wish i could have done them from life (that just wasnt possible).
sulgi-(done with pallette knife)
heres it all put together (how i presented it). i had an image projected just enough to notice(subtle), so when you went up close to look at it your shadow would be cast on the images(affecting the overall image).
heres just a pic of it in the dark, so theres a BIG contrast. NOT how it was presented
i believe thats all the old stuff i am going to post so, next post will be new stuff.......later.
