    You got some good stuff coming along with those oils. Keep at it! Hows the art scene in Austin these days?

    The "failed attempt" is one of the best. Awesome improvement in these studies.

    iheartmyself More like a disclaimer,hah. Well I'm glad you are seeing some decent use of color, thanks man.

    Some charcoals, I want to try a different surface other than newsprint but this smooth surface accepts charcoal so well:

    Good studies, and nice charcoal style, and proper pencilwork. You got something really good going here, so all you need to do is study hard and study smart. Focus on your weak sides, and don't be afraid to move outside your comfortzone

    Wow, I am really glad you're experimenting with media and pushing your figures. Knocking in some of the forms/space around them is resulting in a really successful and unified figure.

    Mischeviouslittleelf Thank you very much for your kind words and advice. I'm taking a step outside my comfort area by moving onto another surface with these charcoals other than damn newsprint,hah. Here's to many more uncomfortable places yet to venture to.
    Kian Glad you dig them!
    M0RS Thanks Dan, pushing myself to see the context of these drawings is helping.
    wookiedabo Your encouragement really means a lot, thanks man.

    Ahoy, it's been a few days since I've last updated this here sketchbook, but I haven't been stagnant in art making. I'm starting to escape my comfort zone by not thinking as "structurally" as I have been doing especially in my pencils, rather more mass based to help go along with my painting pursuits.
    Firstly some 1 min gestures:

    Recently I've been inspired by a beautiful figurative artist named Henry Yan.
    http://www.henryyanart.com/?board=drawing I love the way he approaches the figure, using abstraction to complement the rendered focal areas.

    Thanks for the support guys, it means a lot.

    Here is a cooperative oil piece that my friend, John, and I worked on. I mostly just softened edges here and there since I was paying attention to his process
    of creating a landscape from imagination. I learned tons on working general to specific and keeping the basic value relationship from beginning to end. I hope
    to show what I've learned in my upcoming studies.

    Awesome figures. I feel like your strength is in seeing tones and colors in the studies you do. The oil paintings are great and the edges are treated very nicely in those paintings. And seeing that your talent is with seeing tone, try to look even deeper into what you are observing. I can see you are doing that in the landscape painting, but on the portraits if you work in blues and other complementaries to the reds you are using, you will will work on a whole new level. On the charcoal figures, the rendering is great and remains loose. But don't shy away from the lower leg and feet. A large percentage of your figures seem to disappear below the knee, and if you complete that area the figure will be more convincing. The gestures are great though, line quality is awesome.

    Been doing well lately man, the charcoals are really nice, the tones and the values are really working, and it is really impressive to see how you control the strokes is a sign of a real mature artist. The oils are great and a proper work of craftmanship. Good gestures are good, and I am, as always impressed with anyone can do landscapes of that magnitude

    Omi-kun Thanks! I hope to see you at AVAA sometime in the near future=D

    IVIATT Thank you for the kind words, I do need to work on color relationships and harmony. I'll keep that in mind next painting. You're right about my figures failing to exist below the knee,hah. You'll see more finished figures from me.

    Mischeviouslittleelf Your words have great encouragement and really help to motivate me to keep improving=D Thanks for stopping by!

    Really like the figure studies, they have a strange art deco feel to them, but that's not a bad thing in my book, or in yours for that matter.

    cheerio

    p.s. if possible could you make the last one a bit bigger plz.

    Hey, all the studies are really paying off. I don't think I know anybody who works harder on their art than you.

    Did you get info about the Wednesday night drawing session. I totally forgot what it was about.
