Excellent start. I need to start working with color more often. Your SB seems leagues ahead of mine. Keep it up sir.
FEED THE SKETCHBOOK
Don't be afraid to make mistakes. Nobody made good art by coloring in between the lines.
Hey guys a bunch of new stuff will be going into the sketchbook soon. I just haven't been taking pictures.
Oh yeah and I got into Pratt with a 25% merit scholarship. Which is cool, but not quite enough for me to transfer yet. I am still waiting to hear back about financial aid
Rather than flickr whay not use the attachment manager in the go advanced section of the message board, I think it would be easier and better. I know of some people who have had trouble with outside sources for image storage, just a thought.
Anyway the images themselves are very good, they seem a bit static though so try and do some gesture work as well to get a feel for the figures and the action they are engaged in. You could look up some of the walt stanchfield lectures on line he explains it all very well indeed.
all the best mate and keep posting.
A great kind hearted lumbering bullock

Thanks very cool. Yeah I feel my work has been pretty stiff. Mostly working from models who are trying very hard to stand still etc. I'm looking up the lectures. Thanks!
EDIT: I'm actually having a lot of trouble finding the lectures. You said they were in video format someplace? I found the books, but no videos.
Hey I've been away for awhile. I've been focusing on my writing. I started a writing blog where I wrote everyday for 15 minutes for an entire year. A the end I had completed 110,000 words of prose. Equal to about 1.5 novels.
That blog has now been converted into a sketch/writing blog. You can find my newest stuff at drunkenyear.tumblr.com
I'm currently at the Slade School of Fine Arts and doing a lot of stuff.
Here's some new stuff:
The space between your ribcage and pelvis in a few of your drawings is a little large. If you take your hand and push in at your obliques (side) you'll most likely feel the top of your pelvis' side and bottom of the side of your ribcage.
I've decided to start focussing more on digital instead of just sketches to grow my digital skills.
This first one is in Painter which I'm more used to.
This one was in photoshop.
Still getting the hang of the dang photoshop color picker. I like the Painter one much better.
the one with the fox is pretty good, keep it up.
Nice studies, its very good that you are focused on the skeleton.
But i like mostly your paintings, especially last portraits with the big eared guy got "these something"
Keep it up!
Thanks. Drawing weird faces is pretty fun.
Also I finally got around to taking pictures of some stuff in my studio:
Sold my second painting
Worked a bit more with this new style
and finished a short series of paintings in which I experimented with some new techniques.
Your paintings are looking good. Keep up with the anatomy studies, and like someone else said, practice some gesture.
