    Kevin--

    You keep posting great work--good job.

    I like all of it, but I find the painting of the bald guy (1st image in #539) particularly gorgeous: your marks, the sense of light, and the...

    Here's a big tip: stop drawing glamor model bodies in glamor model poses. Not forever, but for now, at this stage you're in.

    All of the models shown have "obvious" looking builds and are fairly...

    klw-

    I agree with arenhaus about "ditching the computer and photo reference", and going with natural media and drawing from life.

    Here's why: the basis of all that we, as artists, do is...

    Hey, RyanRyan--

    Thanks very much.

    BTW, my website is very much in the process of being built--as a matter of fact, I'm working on it as we speak. Do me a quick flavor and tell me what you mean...
  5. SketchBook: Sketch Process: Senator Dodd

    This is a "sketch process" thing. I'm working on a portrait of former Senator Chris Dodd of CT. My wife worked for him for the past year, so we're going to give him the portrait as a going away gift....

    Hey, Lotuschild--

    Lotsa good points about The Basics being made here; you'll only improve if you take that advice.

    Sulphur--

    Almost forgot: Here's a forum that I did last year that covered a lot of oil painting basics. I put as much useful stuff in there as I could--even for beginners. I'll bet you'll find a...

    As to the "teaching" issue: No one really teaches anyone anything (in terms of a physical skill). A teacher can't ride the bike for you, nor can she paint the canvas for you. You teach yourself....

    Hi, Vari--

    I'm going to be the contrarian, here. I bought the book over a year ago, lost it for a while, found it 3 days ago...and wondered what possessed me to buy it. (Too quick a flip-through...

    Hey, Ixius!

    Your super-clustered gesture drawings are very strong--I really like them. Good line weight and feel for the "human curve".

    Where the drawings lose strength is simple (and where...

    Portrait of the developer whose Open House my work was featured in. The condos are *way* upscale, and it's great exposure.

    Heya! Really solid, fun-to-look-at work you have. The first and third are my favorites. (BTW, "the Royal Tenenbaums" is one my Top 5 movies, and it's one that I put on in the background,...

    Hey Brahimpag--

    If your posted work simply spans April to now (in other words: if the first posts aren't considerably older), I'm seeing some good progress in your figure work!

    Some quick gestures (1-3 min) and a couple of more sustained drawings; 20 & 40 min.

    Gestures--and even a set or two of 20 min poses--come as close to "performance" as it gets for me; it's all...

    Hey--

    A quality Eyeful!

    I really like the juxtapositions: translucent vs. opaque, atmospheric vs. sharp, organic vs. mechanical.

    Also: your color palette is wonderful! While I like crappy...

    Hendrik---

    One of the things that really strikes me in your drawings (ink & charcoal) is your line *spacing*; how you create a "value scale of in-between Distances". This really allows those...

    Hey, master.mind--

    I think you did a fantastic job of catching the feel of that painting. You also did an impressive job on emulating his brushwork. Crit-wise, I'd say that the big differencea...

    Hi, philzero--

    Good, muscular paintwork. You found some really interesting color & temperature relationships and exploited them well. I think the right half of the middle-gound is too contrast-y...

    Hi, Dylan--

    Here are my thoughts (in addition to what I annotated on the image).
