    Hey man, some nice drawings and what not here. Liking the digi stuff as well mate, you could probably try to paint directly into colour, that would be fun to look at^^

    Hell yeah man, today was a great day for art. Those sketches you drew from your imagination turned out pretty well, and they look spiffy with signature.
    I'm liking your control of clearly showing the light and shadow pattern on the model. Hey, are you combing graphite and charcoal on the latest drawings, to get the combination of broad strokes and thin lines?

    Mischeviouslittleelf: Hey, thanks for stopping by. Sometimes I go straight to color with the digitals rather than doing a greyscale drawing and coloring that. The results are definitely better with a directly color painting.

    Kidape: Those are all graphite. The broad strokes an 8B pencils without wood. Since it's all graphite you can turn it on the side and use it for broad areas of tone as well as lines.

    Here's another reason to scan or photograph the life drawings, besides posterity. You never know what oyu're going to see in them once you start laying them over each other.

    Here's some life drawing from tonight. I only thought that one of the longer poses was worth scanning. I also scanned this page of short poses. For some reason I like it. Probably the bending over shot.

    Morning Tom, those short poses are very well executed and I like the composition of the four figures on one page. As always your use of contrast
    in the pencil rendering is very good.

    Though I love the last life painting I really think that the background setracts from the image. Its as shaded as teh figure itself. Either make it darker or lighter, like this its just distracting.

    Cheers mate

    Kidape: Thanks for stopping by, see you at the AVAA

    Janos: Thanks for the feedback. I'll have to pay attention to my focal points, make sure I don't do anything distracting

    Sublimus: Absolutely I'll be keeping it up.

    Here's one from tonight. I also have a buttload of life drawings to photograph, and even some attempts at quick oil paintings. Maybe I'll do it tomorrow.

    Photoshop. I think I should use less textury brush for most of the painting. It makes the unsharpen mask too noisy.

    Very nice, great use of graphic elements in this last one, and I like the combined pointillism type usage of rendering. Your cool colors are working quite well and I especially like the greens you've used in the shadows of the face.

    Kidape: Glad you like the graphic elements in the painting. I think I'll continue that, as well as the textures.

    Here's my most recent. Got broken up with last night so I figured I could either do art or get drunk. So I did both. Here's the result.

    Hi Tom, I think this piece is the most powerful one that you've created, and it's a reclining pose! You handled the merging of shapes into the light and dark masses of the figure pretty well. All the varying textures throughout the piece really work too. I didn't realize that there were subtle purple accents throughout the figure until until my eye moved through the piece, very nice touch.

    Kidape: Thanks, glad you like it. I think it's my best digital so far as well.

    Here's a couple of paintings from tonight. They're 4 foot by 2 foot. I've never worked that big before. My main brush was a house painting brush. They look much better in person. Something I realized tonight about paintings is that the larger they are the more impressive they look. I took a picture of hte room they're in to give some context to their size.

    Hay there Tom, really cool stuff man!

    I always enjoy looking though your SB, and your work of late is really interesting.
    Love your paintings and your sketches are getting really solid too,

    So just keep at it man!

    Hey Tom, it's great to hear that you're working on some large paintings. I'm liking your drips of paint that go over the forms combined with your transparent and loose brushwork. The glazes really bring out the warm reds underneath, especially in the portrait near the side planes and neck area which I think gives it a warm fleshy look=D Keep it up!
    Are these done in oils or acrylics?

    Hey, replies! I no longer get email notifications from this site for some reason.

    hunchback: I'm glad you like them. I'm a fan of loose expressive paintings too. I'll have to see about doing more paintings this size. They were really fun.

    Kidape: These are acrylic. I did these at the Austin Figurative Gallery. Acryllic is much easier to transport.

    JailHouseRock2: Hey, glad you like the sketchbook. I took a look at yours and it's looking really solid as well.

    So here's a bunch of life drawings that I just now got around to taking pictures of. I gotta stop letting these build up on me. It takes forever to do a load like this.

    Hey all,

    Here's my artistic output for the day. I tried to do some big paintings again. This time I painted on some sort of cardboard, so I think too much of it soaked into the surface. Not sure if these came out as well as the last ones. I'll let somebody else be the judge of that. They're 32 x 40 and I only worked on them for 1/2 hour.

    Hey all,

    Did these at the Austin Figurative Gallery tonight. I've been enjoying the acrylic recently. Even though it may not look like it, I've had more control over it recently, and the results have been more satisfactory than oil. There are all 15 minute paintings on the sides of torn-up 12 packs. I also found a corner of my apartment with decent light, so these are actually fairly decent reproductions of the color in the paintings.

    Daaamn, great updates man. It looks like you are really pushing your skills further and further becuase it's paying off in your paintings. The artwork you created on Sunday were massive! A drawing board of equal size to support those cardboard paintings would probably help, some masonite possibly? I think your drips are wonderful accents that complement loose brushwork.
    Tom, the accurate and simple execution of the model's face on that last painting is very beautiful. It looks really confident.

    Shadow Stalker: Thanks! Glad you like.

    Kidape: I might have gotten a lucky drip with that face on the last one. I looked, and it was there.

    Here's a couple of digitals for the draw from what does everybody look like thread. kelly x and Kidape respectively.

    LEGS! You really need to work on them as they are your main weak point.

    I also meant to say that you've got some great work here.

    I didn't think it was possible to be called an artist when you have nothing to say. It's like being a writer who publishes individual words as books and expects to be praised for it.
