She's a nice lady and all, but literally know's next to nothing about any formal elements of drawing. Oh well
I've missed quite a bit here. The Portrait done on toned paper is my favorite of the last batch of stuff. The slight gloss that you put on the eyes and lips with the highlight works very nice.
The illustrator piece made me laugh. Thanks for that one. You ever run over a duck it's the oddest thing. Just one big mess of feathers.
On the painting wip you have a nice composition going on. I hope you keep the same color palette as you work on this.
Then on the charcoal I think you got a little too dark with it. Her face feels squished a bit but It's probably that her nose sticks out too far. The nostrils are starting too far away form the face and makes it feel like the rest of the face is too small.
So it's time for a big dump of stuff. I apologize ahead of time for the quality of the photos :|
self portrait persona drawing, around 5 feet tall.
just messing around with acrylics on some fabric
still life of christmas lights
abstract painting assignment, and an orange
quick still life, and a random face when i got bored. On cardboard.
little assignment from class where everyone had to paint from a tiny square of a poster. acrylics
assignment from class where i had to use a big cardboard tube to help create the painting. So I stuck a big permanent marker in the end and doodled a random picture from 4 feet away, then painted it. It's around 7 feet tall, acrylic on paper.
and a close-up
and a painting I completely destroyed by attempting to add rain
and a close-up
I've got more to post, I'll do it sometime in the near future I guess.
30 min speed paint done before class this morning
Tons of nice stuff in that last one.
Love the SP.
On The Experiment of Acrylic on Fabric It seems like the color palette is clashing a bit. I would have like to have seen the colors in the fabric pattern worked in through out the painting. It would give it an integration that it's lacking right now.
The Christmas lights is by far my favorite of the group.
The painting of the girl in the rain is working very nicely up-close but the look of the rain in the whole painting just seems too crisp and thick.
The speed painting was handled very well. You show lots of skill in being able to fill out the volume and mass in that one.
Dope! like your portraits best.
No man should be less than what he is.
Your self portrait 5 feet drawing is awesome!!I love the old school plane. and the 30 min. speed painting of the paint tube is great! dude! I seriously thought it was a photo. man keep this up, you have Jewels poping up here and there.
fig drawing with nu pastel's, decently long pose
oh this one too
a birthday present for a friend, gouache
and i found a pic I snapped of one of the paintings from earlier in this thread, before paint touched it. looked alot better
Hello, Snowfalls, It's already the third day I'm looking through your book and enjoying it so much.
I think you are wonderful. Your art is very lyrical and light, in my opinion, and when I look at it in your book I absorb it and it leads me to very happy state of mind.
You know, you have a very wide range of skills, use of media, genres and themes. And that's so great, because in every one of them you have your own face ( well except those pencils' compositions, I saw a lot of similar to yours, made in this style on forum.) The rest is very individual. Your art is warm, touching and intelligent.
The portraits you do are one of the best on the forum, in my opinion, striking really, because it's real living people looking at me from them, full of personality and thoughts. That's rare, I respect your ability to notice and to express this. Your still lives are as expressive as the portraits, they have the same feeling of the careful observation and interest to objects from you. And everywhere in your book I feel presence of you, your attentive eyes of an artist.
It will be hard to separate my favorites, you have very many great pieces in this book.
Well I'll try anyway.
http://images5.theimagehosting.com/Snowfigure1hr.jpg ( very nice volume, the best in your life drawings)
http://images5.theimagehosting.com/SnowSP1.jpg ( God, such a touching portrait, you should be proud you know, awesome)
http://images5.theimagehosting.com/SnowPgport.jpg ( I love people in your book, such a light, intelligent, beautiful faces, crystal clear souls)
http://images5.theimagehosting.com/candlenmarbOil.jpg ( very nice skills)
http://images5.theimagehosting.com/Mainewatercolor.jpg ( colors might be a bit off, should be maybe cooler green, I think, but anyway, the mood is wonderful and such a great sensation of the cold day and water, and even time of day, closer to evening, 6-7 pm, I think.)
http://images5.theimagehosting.com/s...stillcharc.jpg (Beautiful still life, all those dots and variety of grey and lines go right to subconsciousness. Very pleasant feeling from this piece, I saved it, hope you don't mind.)
http://images5.theimagehosting.com/snow_futbloom.jpg ( lovely image and this blue is very elegant)
http://images5.theimagehosting.com/grrr.1.jpg ( it's fun to look at)
http://photos9.flickr.com/12565618_e97cca85c7_o.jpg ( the pen strokes are great, create wonderful rhythm, it almost a music, you know)
http://photos8.flickr.com/12565619_e51b0670a5_o.jpg ( again, I can feel your eyes carefully looking at the objects.)
http://static.flickr.com/33/42137941_c4852737aa_o.jpg (impeccably beautiful. I have no words)
http://static.flickr.com/32/47904807_82ba932940_o.jpg ( you know all those pencils strokes, soft, cloudy, relaxing, they are very powerful mind-controlling stimulators, in my opinion, you can't not to love them)
http://static.flickr.com/28/48201044_3204761d96_o.jpg ( awesome sculpture, mix of the living person and art, beautiful, you should do more)
http://static.flickr.com/29/48201045_c37a8cb9ca_o.jpg ( very cool, almost white on white).
http://static.flickr.com/30/58890346_17b275930a_o. (it's so cool. i really have a feeling of the mirror, its cool, smooth surface and your reflection in it, WOW, You caught it nicely, I saved, awesome!)
http://static.flickr.com/30/61498626_d38ac4f52c_o.jpg (those three are not just portraits, it's you sitting inside their brains, Wow, wow, wow, I saved them, pure beauty, you know)
http://static.flickr.com/31/62709624_272b1bae5e_o.jpg (a very interesting, strange feeling from the portrait and I like the colors)
http://static.flickr.com/29/64400086_cb935d9d35_o.jpg ( such a pleasant pondering mood in this one, I love it so much, save it, thanks)
http://static.flickr.com/40/90544355_2de43c636b_o.jpg ( nice one)
http://static.flickr.com/15/90940986_7791eca15f_o.jpg (beautiful windy portrait, very, very moody. I love it, saved it)
http://static.flickr.com/31/100628516_a219689453_o.jpg (very interesting, and i like the feeling of the cold, cloudy day, you seem to like this weather a lot)
http://static.flickr.com/27/100628518_f59b8bf004_o.jpg ( very talented work, you got it, very similar . I saved it)
So thank you so much, It was a huge pleasure looking at your art, you are great.
that dark value on the cheek of the guache is a bit distracting. otherwise, pure sass.
also that oil from the weekend at Tiff's i think you ruined it with that blotchy rain. scaping rain into the paint would have made a cool effect (in theory)
i see you got a wesley burt imitation drawing in there. nice try. no but really, i like your art work. and wes is definitely a good person to look up to.
Cam - you are doing some great stuff. I know you feel as you are struggling to get information from this 'foundation year' (why do they call it foundation...it's the furthest thing from that?)
That 5' sp looks great. I'd love too see it in person...I bet it's really impressive- not soley based on it's dimensions..just because it's well done.
I am with Tiffany too - that paint tube looks great. Your observational skills are developing so well. Just keep at it bro...Cheers!
Thanks guys + sve, especially you sve, you made my day much brighter
p.s arkady - get yourself on aim sometime in the near future, I have an OiNK.me.uk invite for ya
so can I post photo-manip stuff in here? I will anyways
being bored in visual computing class
and something I just finished
arkady- what filters , those are a couple of diiferent textures i scanned in and played with.
and a portrait of a friend, done in painter(would of been easier if my tablets pressure sensativity wasn't broken )
everything on this ENTIRE FRIGGIN THREAD is amazing.
I mean it.
C'est très RADtastique
time for a bunch of stuff
first off two older pastel portraits I did, from life.
and another old one, done from a (really) old photo of me
and now recent stuff.
small oil painting
big pen drawing
and so you can see how big it is
quicky oc warpaint thingie
and finally a 44 inch long collage thing of a bunch of stuff in photoshop, then made into a little book.
little book is cool, i love making little books, and that big pen drawing is extreme, is it anything im particular im getting floating city
I second that emotion. . . the big pen sketch is amazing. This is a really inspiring range of style and media.
Great! new work Cam. very nice, keep it coming!
that little book is nice man. but i love the big pen drawing up there, you know, the really big one.
would love to see some more of those...

rob, jtheanswer, amer-nazri, Arconl, Idiomatic and Tiff. - Thanks
Tensai - thanks but no thanks heh, I really don't have the patience for that kind of ultra detail stuff(wish I did, then I could attempt some of the cool stuff that you do).
bradley - thanks, It is actually mean't to be "everything in the world"(kinda ambitious i guess). If you look at the bottom there is a tiny 'lil planet
