    Charles Ratteray Thank you!

    Chaser226 Yes I definately know what you're saying about the short legs, you've got some nice figures as welll!

    Metal Fingers Cool I think you're absolutely right about that, I was even thinking about it along the way

    cgaddict Thanks dude!

    PepeDN Yeah definitely!

    Zebz Thanks a lot for the crit man, I was playing with using some maroonish tones in that one but for some reason I wasn't feeling it. I know it would look much better though if there were some compliments in there or eve a few secondary colors.

    prsnsweeney Thanks man! Keep up with those figure drawings it just takes a lot of practice!

    MattGamer Ah duuuuuude, you are the first one to point that out! lol, I saw it as I was painting it but I had hoped no one else would notice.

    jozulus Awesome, thanks!

    Ostroponis Thanks man!

    VanDog Thanks dude!

    tja88 Thanks dude I will!!


    Damn it's so hard to keep a five star rating. Just means I have to work harder!! Thanks for the comments and crits everyone, here are two recent self portraits, plus a video of the last one being done.

    The last one took me about an hour and the video was sped up to about 3 and a half minutes.

    these are nice, they feel "alive". also like how both are vary different in mood and color, the first one you look very tired and worn out...

    In the video I see you start out with measuring the facial features..as far as crits go, I guess I could recommend maybe trying out starting your portraits by spending some time figuring out more of the structure and form of you skull..it might help. I don't believe there is a wrong or right way to do a portrait, but it can only help you if your initial drawing lets you understand more about the relationship between the facial features and their placement within the skull. by the way what's the tune playing in the background? nice work.

    hahaha most people will notice it but be shy to tell you about it. hahaha! if you can hide it well, no one will care though some mothers might care if that setting was a background for a disney film or something. haha!! for example, see how much hate mail the artist for the background of the cover of Disney's The Little Mermaid got. i think one of the buildings resembles a phallic and people went crazy. the artists said he didn't even realize it until someone pointed it out to him.

    i admire what your'e doing with those portraits. it takes a considerable amount of time to do digitally what would be a lot easier traditionally with oils or acrylics. the randomness that a brush gives you is hard to emulate through a wacom. i'd actually be fooled, almost, if it weren't for the crisp edges and photoshop brushes. ;]

    LisandroG- Thanks for the comments and crits dude I'll give that a go next time and see what kind of results I get.

    MattGamer - Haha I'll have to check that out. Actually, my experience in traditional media is a bit limited so I'm finding it much easier in photoshop right now. Trying to get in some more oil sketches and colored pencil work this summer though. Thanks!


    So I've been starting to work on environments a bit more, really want to push myself with them, here's one from today, no ref.

    awesome sketchbook! There's some really great anatomy here. And I love love those images for your triptych.

    I suppose no matter what I'm drawing, there will always be some sort of question in my mind about it. A work of art (even cartoon art) is never really finished; it is abandoned.

    Dude, the work in here is all top-notch man! Your ideas are crazy and new! I love the progress in this sketchbook you are really only getting better and better, i wonder if you can get any better by now. Im just wondering, do you prefer to use photoshop or painter or any other program?

    Great self portraits! that landscape doesn't look bad at all either. Landscapes are a bit tough, but some stuides from life might help you in them, given that you already have a good level.

    That self portrait speed painting looks great, especially for only an hour. The enviro looks really good too, though the BG stuff on the right looks a bit close, maybe a little atmosphere in between would help separate the two?

    Great job with the self portraits, man. A lot of action in the shadows for the environment, too, which I dig. What did you capture your portraits with, and what software did you speed it up with? I've been trying to get something like that going for a long time and haven't had any luck.

    Cheers and thanks for dropping by!

    feeesh - Thanks!

    staticpen - Thanks man, I used camtasia studio for the recording and for the speeding up of the video (though I'm not quite sure how I sped it up, I played with tooo many settings)

    Istmin52 Thanks man I will!

    Lidiev - Thanks! That's something I'd be down with doing, I just don't feel like I'm good enough yet for people to want to learn how I do things

    prsnsweeney Thanks, I've done a life study in oils annd it was pretty awesome actually.

    Benjy I agree, thanks for the crit dude!

    kidult Thanks I will!

    Abrodos Yeah they definately will, just haven't been able to do too many at the moment. Really want to though, thanks!

    sala leota Thanks dude!

    hücumkedi Thank you it's good to hear!

    fionkell Thanks man, I really put a lot of work into them during the school year!

    DANKA Thanks dude nice to have you stop by!

    jelmerschmit Haha thanks a lot, but of course I can get better!
    I just went through my inspiration folder, and checked out some of the stuff the art center students are doing...and felt like a real piece of poop lol.

    Asterisks Thank you!

    Kfeeras Thanks!

    MattGamer I've actually been using a turpentine substitute, not sure what it's called but it's been working quite well

    Yor Great! I'm glad you liked it!

    Eddieee Thanks dude!


    Ok so here is a recent photo study! I enjoyed this one a lot and learned quite a bit. After attempting something for CHOW 201, I realized I just couldn't come up with a convincing female figure. Study time! Focused on using minimal brush strokes and choosing the right value and color the first time. Tried to stay away from a lot of the typical photoshop blending. Exaggerated the lighting and color a bit in a few areas to understand a bit more. A close up too.

    your stroke handling and color in that last piece reminds me of Alex Kanevsky. head seems a little big? maybe not, I think her slender frame is throwing me off. Either way its really good work man.
