A friend of mine, Nick Meyerhoff from Alameda CA, USA got a small grant to build a robot made out of recycled objects. A few of us worked every Sunday for 5 months and then took the bad boy to...
Hey CA, haven't been here in awhile. Thought I'd share some large desert line drawings I was going at Burning Man this year. Really fun, the full moon was amazing, I could see everything and drew for...
I created concept art for the film when it was at Pixar in 2008, even worked on it with Iain McCaig 4 years before that when Paramount films was trying to get it off the ground.
Best music I've heard - iTunes radio / ambient / DI Chillout and/or DI Chillout Dreams
also Pandora - Thomas Newman (film scores)
I love that you are still at it! Good for you! ~M
Right, composition, careful with anything in the middle, it's a black hole and unless you know what you are doing stay away. You wants the eye to move around. And of course, story, if you don't know...
thanks for the good ideas! ~M
I worked on this film back in 2008 when Iain McCaig was running the early concept art phase at Pixar. We'll see how it looks. ~M
oh paint more.... for 30 years!
Practice, trust the process, and use your other hand.... yes I know, the other hand. Your brain will understand everything more by doing this, try it.... ~M
You are missing the point... which is to masturbate while you are drawing, and becoming a better artist!
I like it, keep going, painting for the rest of your life.
Keep going, I like it, look at Rembrandt, he really nails the face and lets everything fall off from that!
Small Town ~ Big Vision is a 30 minute documentary film by Kevin Footer and Victoria Zorraquin that follows the vision of artist Mark Wagner as he created the world's largest chalk drawing. But he...
It's over cooked by now, move on, make a dozen more of something else.

The Courage to Create by Rollo May
I keep saying this here, do 50 more of these and see what happens. It's not so much what someone else can tell you about...
Do 100 more of these and get back to me. Quantity over quality, you got to do more work, trust yourself, make a mess, work with paint and paper, mud and sticks, meet your work 1/2 way, let it teach...
It's not bad, just do more, browns and flesh have undertones, keep them warm, into the pink. Be careful of yellow or blues. Do 50 more and ask again.
Nice work, it could only be better if you did more eye work. Eye are so powerful, eye contact, there is a soul energy that would really make this work just sing.... figure out what I am talking...

YES on flipping the image - bravo!
TRADITION & DIGITAL
I just wrote this to another young artist. Seems to apply here.
You are stopping too early and asking for feedback. Trust yourself, get out of your head, down into you belly...
Cool, look at how other artists you admire use LINE. It separate space in a way that you piece is weak on. It holds things in. Look at Picasso, his lines are 2 inches thick but it's easy to see what...
Leave the face, I like it. Great piece, don't over cook it, start your next masterpiece! Love the light, color, eyes in the hair fantastic. Maybe a slight halo of light behind her head, sun/yellow,...
