    RagnarX Thanks man, i looked for a sketchbook for you, but didn't find one. Checked out your website though. Really cool stuff. I like the storyboards!

    Clochette Merci beaucoup! i like your sketchbook too! it's a very happy sketchbook, which is kind of rare with all the guns and aliens and apocalypse going on.

    Ashab Thanks. i was born in the year of the Tiger, so according to the chinese at least i'm destined to wind up exploring

    i know it'll make me sound like a morose emo kid, but i just don't enjoy art openings all that much. i always wind up drawing out in the parking lot while waiting for anybody i know to show up. since i know very few people, i wind up doing this alot. being in los angeles only makes it worse. thanks to the people who did show up though.

    pen in moleskine under the parking lot light.

    l0stinth0ughts, equality72521 my friend and former teacher (and still current teacher too sometimes) convinced me to do those final drawings. after i worked out compositions in photoshop, i projected them very lightly and then took great pains in designing the shapes, line weights, etc. if you've ever seen my teacher draw live, you'd understand immediately just from how his hand moves. every shape relates to another shape, every line borrows from the rhythm of another line. (at least that's how it's supposed to work when it's done correctly... i still struggle at times.)

    Tensai Thanks man, that means a lot to me,. i miss my sculpting so much. It makes me kind of sad to think how much wood i would've carved by now if i had stayed in Japan. sculpting and contour drawing are the things that come naturally to me, i just do it and enjoy every last minute of it. i never have a bad day when i'm in the clay...or the wood...or the bronze.

    another one i started last night at Jeremy Lipking's studio. Not happy with it since I couldn't concentrate at the time, but maybe i'll be able to fix it next week. there has been entirely too much shit going on lately.

    forgot my camera so i had to use my phone...
    week 5 of sculpture. it's coming along slowly but surely...and, i gotta be honest, i'm loving every minute of it. i've had a sculpture itch for so fucking long it feels great to finally scratch it.

    p.s. i hate pink clay. i'll probably eat my words someday and try it. but for right now, i've declared war on pink clay.

    Jake Kobrin Thanks Jake, it's been a long strange trip since i started this thread... started it while temporarily in Wichita KS working for Boeing Directed Energy Systems, now i'm "back" in Los Angeles struggling to make my way. it's nice to think i've made some kind of progress cuz there's been a whole lot of ch-ch-ch-changes.

    mmmm good stuff here man The early stuff is quality and it just gets better. I think your sculpting is really getting there, and taking it slow can be a good thing while learning, but you might wanna have more paralell stuff going on so that you don't have to settle for those 3 hours a week in the studio. Anyhoot, the thread is quite nice, keep up the solid work, and share the love!

    Happy Thanksgiving to everybody!

    HunterKiller, JosebaAlexander Thanks!

    Daver the last ones were in a moleskine sketchbook which is roughly 5x8 or so. i draw from imagination and from life. the sculpture was from life. the gorilla girls were from life--and then i refined them with imagination. the screaming monkey head (the large one and the smaller profile shot) were both from imagination. it varies depending on what's going on, but both are important. i typically draw with ballpoint pen in a moleskine, or i've been drawing a lot with prismacolor pencil on duralene (drafting mylar). i also do charcoal/conte on smooth newsprint for life drawings, etc.

    Mischieviouslittleelf it's a 10-week pose, so there's no rush. i would like to sculpt at home, but it just isn't possible right now. i've got my easel in my kitchen, and my 5' wide drafting table and computer in my main room. just isn't room to sculpt with everything else going on. but that will change soon enough...

    i haven't drawn much in graphite for a long time, but there are some cool sketchbooks up here in CA.org that have really inspired me to mess around and give it a shot.

    does anyone know how much (thick paper) moleskines smudge with graphite?

    Equality72521 Thanks. i have no idea where i'll wind up. i've got a new project in the mix, should be finished by x-mas or so, but i won't post it until early next year. a whole 'nuther medium for me to screw with.

    i agree with you about the proportions. the head's a little off. but i'm a lot happier with the colors and composition this time. i hope this oil painting thing will pull itself together eventually.

    ExtollereThanks. more finished pieces will happen relatively soon.

    DanielC Thanks. I'm going to go back to the old-fashioned graphite pencil thanks to you. Don't look for any wisdom here though--I'm a complete jackass.

    Edward Teller was the Hungarian-born physicist repsonsible for developing the American H-Bomb. In a lot of ways, he was the polar opposite of Robert Oppenheimer--indeed, Teller had Oppenheimer's (his former boss) security clearance revoked on bullshit grounds that he was a Communist. Anyway, I have a morbid fascination with all of this shit

    Anyway, my friend and teacher Mark Westermoe offered to do a demo of the 80's-90's movie poster illustration techniques using airbrush, acrylic and other mixed media. We're both fans of "Dr. Strangelove" so I drew up a shot of Teller from Life magazine's photo archives, put on the DVD and watched mark do his thing. Mark did the following demo incredibly fast (probably under 4 hours of actual time, while taking breaks to eat, talk, and relax). He's a master of the medium (and others as well for that matter), and a teacher par excellence.

    My friend Adi also came by to watch. (I think she's hypnotized here.)

    (the head looks a little tall and distorted--it's due to my camera, not Mark)


    Extollere Misery loves company.

    wookiedabo Thanks! I don't like spraying fixative all over the damn place, so i'm kinda at a loss to figure out what to do. I like to preserve my sketches for as long as i can so i can come back to them and get ideas. i think moleskines are pretty sturdy though, so the pages won't rub together too much. probably just can't draw on facing pages though if i want to keep something clean.

    Mr. Sunshine. Thanks!


    P.S. No more calling me "sir," please! I feel like an old man enough as it is.

    life drawing at our secret meeting. the likeness to the model isn't there since we were talking to her too much. so i idealized it a bit instead. charcoal on newsprint.

    there are many good things about drawing with mark. one of them is just the constant reminder to abstract my shapes, control lines and edges, and idealize the subject. he doesn't have to say anything, just drawing with him is a constant reminder.

    beatiful portrait, i wonder what idealizing the model means is it like drawing less from figure and more from the mind??
