    So many beautiful works, they are really amazing. Your site was giving me a RED Site adviser warning, though. Might want to try and fix that, could push visitors away from your site. Keep it up and I hope to see more from you!

    I think my site is pretty safe.

    The problem was few months ago. I believe someone hacked into my site and put one strange line in my index.htm file.
    I have removed it long time ago when I found it but it seems they just put my site to black list no matter how.

    That is kind of frustrated, and create a new domain name may be the only solution to solve that.

    nice work i seen it before..i think there's lot of room for improvement in your already confortable level..on your figures there is still a lack of structure..mainly sensing the bones..knowing and feeling the bones underneath will make your flesh have more substance (your skin tones are nice,but because of this anatomy problem your figures seen to not have the fleshy feeling)..I would recomend you to insert yourself deeply in anatomy and draw the skeleton and its bones a thousand times)it will may your figures even more real..and not as many think anatomy is not making figures muscular..keep posting exellent work

    my new site, is crazy stuff but is my own space, I can say whatever!! hehe:

    VERY nice jason! My fave is the first one, they way you got the light on the grass. I was wondering why most of your life paints from the model are from the back. Is it because you have difficulties with the geometry of the face? They don't seem to be at the same level as the rest of your lovely bodies.
    I too have incredible difficulties with this, especially symmetry. (ok and most other things too...) I'm doing alot more sketches in the park of peoples faces to try and remedy this, and slowly its seems to be working.

    I really enjoy your backgrounds in the nudes too.

    Keep them coming!

    For those two figure paintings, I "deleted" the bones in the paintings intentionally. Those bone structure were actually painted and I blended it since I really like this kind of soft looking with this type of paintings.
    You must know Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres. http://www.jasonjart.com/lifedrawing/07_80_DSCF7862.jpg
    Especially this one. When I was painting it, I was thinking about his paintings.
    Maybe it was not a good attempt.
    But I definitely keep working on my figure drawings to learn more human structures, and keep it up!

    Thank you to point out that!

    Someone said "Face is hard to Paint!"
    Yes, I feel the same way! and Actually most of my life paintings are not from back of the models, but recently I did more back paintings.

    I usually need solid 1~2 hours to get the face right on the paintings, for me sometimes it is good to skip face and enjoy the color and composition of the paintings.

    It sounds like I need to paint face even more!

    Are you in school or planning to apply? I think your potential is so great that I'd be happy to have you apply for the 4 year diploma in Concept Art at Max the Mutt in Toronto. The things you're having trouble with will disappear with the right kind of information and study: what works in your paintings shows real sensitivity and sensibiltiy, a feel for paint that can't be taught.

    Was I looking at the wrong work? I checked out your links and was amazed to find that you would speak as if you have already arrived. There is a note of condescension in your use of "comfortable." I am not making any judgment on your potential, but you haven't the knowledge at this point ( as demonstrated from your work that is posted) to tell anyone how to proceed!
    Make suggestions, but don't take the tone of a superior. Most of all, take your own advice.

    JasonJ, you are my hero. Ever since I started playing GW. What I like is the softness and the subdued colors of your paintings--they make your work very approachable. Even your video game stuff has this quality.

    Sometimes I feel that the faces are overworked. I like the looser faces the best. But my biggest crit is you are posting all your images at a way too small resolution!!

    Thank you so much.
    I am glad that I still have potential after 2 years painting.

    I got a Math degree in 2000, and a Associated Art Degree in 2004.
    I have spent much time in the school.
    But If there is a good chance, I will want to go back to study MFA.

    Sorry about the small images.
    I designed my website to be viewable even with a 800X600 resolution screen so most of my images are under 600X600 pixels
    I will start to post some higher res images next time!

    I would like to know more about looser faces V.S. Tight faces.
    One of my friends really like some of my detailed work, and he asked me "why don't you do this kind of paintings more?"

    For me, it all depends on how I feel when I was painting it.

    Truly awesome work! The edges in your figure work are wonderful. It would be great to see a step-by-step thread from you sometime so we can get a sneak peek at your process. Keep posting, this thread is very inspirational!

    These are nice. I like the one where the girls back is facing you, with both hair in pigtails and also the one that you say is unfinished, where it's a portrait of a girl looking down. I see a big influence from Jeremy Lipking in some of your work with the poses and the lighting. I can agree with the comment that some of the faces look a bit overworked in some of them. Maybe try solving some of the drawing issues with a bit more simplification and straight lines (loomis) or check out some of Glen Orbiks demos at www.orbikart.com. I like the colors quite a bit and it will be cool to see you post more. Those two I mentioned before really stand out to me.
