do you know of any links to get some info on the Andrew loomis books im looking to pick up a coppy but wana shop around for prices a little bit.
yeah, you can find the books scanned online at http://www.fineart.sk/ and if you want to buy the books, you need to just be patient and buy them off of ebay. I spent over a year trying to find and get the best prices on them and have bought them all off of ebay.
thx for the link sounds good ill just keep a watchfull eye
Here's some more sketches from my sketchbook.

looking good man, always cool to see somebody progressing :)
one question, what medium did you use to make that color studies in your sketchbook? prismacolors?
lovely renders i like your stuff
I really love the way you use your colors dude
make more, and keep posting!!
P. S. the carrot alien is top noch stuff he he.
Hi Bowlin Im quite new here too and loving this place already myself, artist life can be so lonely and isolated and who other understands artist more than another artist, I particularly like the second sketchbook page because you vary more in the lines that sometimes they are more thicker and darker sometimes lighter and also you are moore loosed and expressive not thinking too hard what you are drawing, I think thats important and makes sketches look nice and interesting
Darkside - Thanks man, but progressing? hmmmm... hehehe .... and yes that's prismacolors, looks good, but takes a long time for simple studies in a sketch book.
Maxetormer - Thank you.
Egets - Thank you very much for your compliments. :)
I really like the art nouveau bear portrait. Thanks for posting it.
Just another old page of life drawing. The first pic on this thread was also a life drawing. It's a chinese brush holder.
Tryin to figure out this tablet thang... http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v3.../windgirl2.jpg
This looks like the start of an epic sketchbook. Your life drawings are wonderful. Keep it up :)
That's a great and mulisided So much interesting and wonderfully done drawings art, Bowlin! I enjoying it very much.I especially like the faces. Such a truthful expression. You are very skilled.
My favorites are:

Thank you so much
good stuff Bowlin.... the last one is interesting although its a bit weird.. im not sure if it was intentional bu, it seems like she doesnt have a neck... keep on drawing brother man,...
Thanks Interceptor. Very nice of ya to say. :)
sve... thank ya. I'm not sure what you mean by "i took it, ok?". If you mean saved it to your computer or whatever, sure, feel free too. :)
vigostar.. Thanks for the complements, man. It does look like she has no neck. I was trying to make it look like her shirt was being blown up with wind from her hands, but it was such a quick doodle that i didn't spend time to really analyze it. Proably could have added some details with a different type of shirt to get the effect better, but i was really just tryin to learn what to use to render better in painter. This tablet is sooo difficult for me... need to get a cintiq to have a better "hands on" feel. ..................... P.S. your girlfriend is soooo hot!!! I seriously envie you! You should be drawing that girl all the time. :P
Hey, Todd... glad to see that your keeping this book alive! I like that enviro study.. im not sure what the original looks like and Im too lazy to click on the link but, what you have there looks good to me... you gotta finish that Hale painting too man... keep on doing the do man!
Thanks Rob, the phil hale was just a quick study on the skin tones. I ran out of steam on it and already started something else. Just barely starting to see how to push and pull FORM with paints..... barely. heh
Just workin on some little tiny studies...
Tiny oil .. thing
A little flesh ball exercise...
And a first attempt at watercolor pencils. Proably ought to try some other mediums with it, inks or gouche, etc. for better value contrast.
On the Hildebrant copy your clouds look way to regular
rember that clouds are moslty abstract shapes,
if you repeat the same curve angle and posicion to
much it will look false, same goes with the trees,
the colors on the other hand are spot on!! kudos on that;
the P. Hale copy is looking really REALLY GOOD,
and this last ones are nice as well, but the sphere on the
second page look off color wise, remeber that if you put a
pink-brownish object surrounded by a green enviroment
the object will cach some green on the reflected ligths.
This is a link that you could find usefull, its got some pretty
asum information on color and on other things as well!!
Keep it UP, I really like the work your are displaying!
Thanks for the reply Maxetomer. :) I didn't treally try to hard in replicating that Hildebrandt piece, the thing I was focusing on was mixing oil paints in Painter without using the little selection thing. I was hoping this would help me learn how to mix more subtle colors digitally. (but I don't feel much success, was a pain in the neck!)
Green light reflected on the sphere is not alway neccessary, because it's an image of nothing but the sphere floating in front of a green background. I make a lot of colored balls and then just try some different backgrounds with the idea of the squares used in art classes... where a color changes when surrounded by another... http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v3...colorblock.jpg
And even if there is reflected light, how much and what type of lighting can be whatever you want... http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v3...flectball3.jpghttp://img.photobucket.com/albums/v3...flectball2.jpg
My point is when there is nothing in the picture, but a ball and a flat colored background... you can pretty much do whatever want with reflected light... there's no standard or proper approach... http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v3...flectball4.jpg
Just some sillyness... I love Idiot Apathy's little landscape studies in his sketchbook and thought I'd try one... His little paintings look like a great way to explore thumbnail ideas for landscapes.
Some stuff from paintchat...
and yet another update... :scribble:
You have some pretty awesome stuff here!! I love the pencil sketches the best. --i really like the norman rockwell. well done!
