maxetormer: hey whats up! thanks for the crits finnaly some crits! hah hah, yea i feel the same way now that you mentioned it. but im a lazy man at heart,i dont feel like working on it anymore, once i finish something up i have a tendencey to just leave it as is unless it is imperative to make those changes.
i have a crapload of stuff to scan so keep an eye on this sb. feel free to rate my thread too if you guys have the time!
xpose: is your lil sister hot? nahh jus jokin' lol, thnx for dropping by man i appreciate it.
prostate sunrise: i appreciate very much! im gonna rock it some more!
van:thanks man! glad you found my thread, keep checking back for more stuff!
heres a speed paint i did today, kinda looks like ass, im not very fond of it. im going to do a pencil drawing based on this one soon.
heres a random weird spur of the moment speed paint, this is more painterly and experimental using photo ref. i actually did this a while back last semester. i had some left over acrylic paints and they were sitting inside my airtight palatte smelling like funk, so i decided to use them on some scrap illustration board. im prolly gonna rehash this concept and turn it into a pencil drawing and later color it in ps. everything is pretty funked up on this one.
this is sort of a wip. but i dont want to work on it n e more. got frustrated with the whole damn thing so i adjusted the lightness, i dont know why. looks weird, but better than how it looked before. imo.
nice stuff buddy, you have a great style. your sketches alone look wicked but with the color and quotes you add in, it just gives your pages so much style and makes them fun to look at. im definitely gonna be checkin this sketchbook out more. peace
nmcleod: whuts up man? thnx for droppin by my dsb. yea man ive been using the quotes stuff just for fun. its good to throw in some randomness every now and then.
arghmisfit: thank you, I appreciate it, that means a lot to me ya know!! yea, coro is one of my favs. his work is amazing and very inspiring to me. i Still got to practice some more of his techniques. be on the lookout for some oil paintings!!

whew, sbeen a while since i updated this badboy anyhoo
i got some life sketches here for now... some old some new.
crits, comments, questions, suggestions, or what have you are always appreciated! feel to free to rate this thread if u want, im not forcing u guys, i just would like to know what this thread would score. thanks again!
some great stuff in here. I too got a graphitti feel from your work, especially the earlier posts, but you've already addressed that. I think my favorite pieces are the mixed media ones. they have lots of interesting stuff going on. lots of the life drawings rock, but I think my favorite are the quicker ones. I don't mind when you go back and add stuff to the negative space, but are you going back and adding outlines to the figures too? some of the figures have really strong outlines that could work if you wanted to color them and add crazy background elements, but the strong outlines can take away from the drawing if it's just the figures. anyway, you've got some good things going on, so keep at it.
finnally got off my slacker ass and updated my dsb. been glued to the tv set watching the olypmics womans beach volleyball and womans gymnastics. very skilled woman competing. big ups to kerri walsh and her partner misty may for winning gold. i digress...
prostate sunrise: thnx for droppin by man. loved your thunderdome entry.
Slash: sup slash? appreciate it very very much man. cheers to you!!
Pichuerca: thnx man, ill keep postin.
steak-tron: whats up man? big fan of your thread, thanks for checking out my dsb, i appreciate it a hecka of a lot.
Whut up elboy: some of the lifedrawing stuff I did were using a very light 2h pencil. I felt that I couldn’t feel the form in its entireity so I went back and rehashed some of them with a darker outline(hb pencil) just to accentuate the form. This is something Ive been doing in the past cause usually the poses are short, around 5 minutes. So whenever I have the free time I throw in some dark values to fill in some of the negative space and just to make certain areas go…. pop. I get what you are trying to say, the strong outlines can take away from the drawing, I was going for the design look.. Anyhoo the background elements are thrown in as a result of my “going with the flow” if you will. , its definitely part of my personality showing through in my works Its something that I cant stray away from as its just part of my approach of things. Hmmm I appreciate your taking the time to write some comments. I will most definitely keep this in mind….
Changing gears now…. got some sketches that have been sleeping in my book for a while.
heres a quick sketch i did in like 10 minutes, very loose, spontaneous, spur of the moment, free drawing if u will.
i later on rehashed that drawing, and got something like this...
thats it folks, stay tuned for more of my sketches.

Wow first time I went through your thread, some amazing art in here! Your mixed media are great.. What I really LOVE are the ball point and colored pencils on the toned paper. But every drawing you have is strong, and you never waste space, thats for sure.
On a side note, I watched the womens beach volleyball, and your right it was great. Kerri and Misty did a good job!
Anyways, keep posting, youve just inspired me some more!
arghmisfit: and i thank you.
Burning Eyes: thnx for stopping by my thread man! i like messin around with different mediums, trying new shit is always a good thing. i plan to do more sketches in my toned sketchbook when time permits so keep an eye out. on another note i just watched the rhythmic gymnastics and all i can say is those girls are mad flexible!
Groover McNab: awesome to have u post in my thread, as your colored stuff is wicked nice. thnx for noticing my knack for experiementing with different colors and such
