Finally! Sick stuff Matt, I love that you're using a texture background. Try filling the body of the images in white, I think it would look better.
Hey Matt..buddy, whats up?? Glad your startin a book dude... i just started posting in mine again, posted some crappy stuff to start
Check out mine and i'll check out yours, i will try and keep mine up to date as much as possible, you do the same!
Hope your doing good.
Awsome sketches by the way, i love how your style feels original too me, like i said before get some of your work on T's dude!
awsome stuff man...agree that your stuff should be on t-shirts. This stuff is so fresh.
Hey dude, thanks for the push. I've drawn a bit lately but it's been a busy time. There's been Xmas, trying to get a new job at work and moving this week... so I haven't been able to really get into drawing. Sucks. Hopefully I'll be back into the swing of things real soon!
cool stuff man keep posting but still keep improving
Ev'sSketchbook for the lazy minded but willing!
Help an artist, leave a critique.
There's some great stuff in here. I really like your shapes. Some of this stuff is pretty cleaned up... what's your really sketchy stuff look like?
my SB : Critiques very much appreciated.
Thanks mondegreen, hopefully this post will show a bit more of my sketchy stuff. I go through phases of drawing sketchy or really clean. Whatever I'm feeling at that moment I guess... and what music I'm listening to.
I just finished moving and now have some time to get back to work. CHURCH!
Inspired by Jim Mahfood on this one(not even close to how good his shit is)
Here's some sketchy stuff and some more full bodys than I normally do. I know I need to start drawing the full body more but I love faces and hair!
you really have a solid style it seems. Like dude Orifice said your cartoony style/ caricatures are your strongest piece imo. push them farther plz and like the the ethnic approach to illustration you really will garner so fans if you push it higher further and farther.......so do it dude.
Transition from Art Critic to Artiste - Diligence, that's all I need.
Whos God?!?.....'God... well you know when you really wish for something?'...yeh??.. 'He is the guy that ignores you.'!
is the Elixer..
noice...i really love the vector stuff, although your pencil stuff is great too
you seem really confident with your work and compositions, its really refreshing. one question since i know nothing about vector art....
how long does one of those take? do you go over a hand sketch? your using illustrator?
Orifice - Thanks, I really enjoyed doing the more cartoony stuff lately. I love trying to blend cartoony with detail. I'll have some more soon.
NicoRaven - Thanks for the push!
Arekkusu - Nice to meet you too. I agree with your choices. Those are up there for my favs as well. I might be able to do some faces but from looking at your sb you have a lot more things down.
kakapoopie - Thanks for the compliments. You're stuff is amazing.
Most of my Vector pieces take about 2-5 hrs depending on when I cut myself off. It's hard to know when to let them be done. There's usually a main theme or look that I'm going for but it often changes so much. The first pic on this page was originally suposed to be a girl looking up at the moon, lol. Don't know what the hell happened.
I use Illustrator for the line work and ps for the colours. Usually I start with a sketch(first one) or sometimes a photo(the last two were from photos). I learn something from both ways.
Also, I play around with textures a lot.
cool stuff man, I like your style.
