William Bouguereau Master Copy was incredible, congratulations!
great eye,nice touch,strong imagination...excellent brush strokes, try to learn perspective more!!!,and what concerns working with elevations...(i study architecture and i use to do what you do...but once i learn to think in all the aspects of an object...topview,side views,front,back ,below...your persception of 3dimentions gets better and shows up in your work...what loomis says...go back to basic geometric forms...pure line,not shapes...INSPIRING...GOTTA GO Back to painting and drawing...excellent!!!
Great artwork! Thanks for sharing your pencil pages! Keep them coming!

Current Master Copy.
Thanks for looking!
Thinairart & Lang Oulk- I appreciate you stopping by. I'm still working at that master copy. I want to take more intermediate photos before the final (so I can find holes in my process).
I thnk I have some other stuff to post... but later for that
oh wow, your really good at portraits, and loose paintings and drawings. I kind of want to eat your work. Never not make loose gestural things, your stuff has an exciting energy to it. If I could crit, it would just be try different ages and more ethnicity and different anatomical body types, I'd also love to see more work from your imagination. Can't wait to see more!
wow... your work is simply beautiful. it might sound a little odd, but I absolutely adore your work.

-In the beginning there was nothing, which exploded.-
Thanks for the inspiration, great work and your amount of studying makes me jealous!
Have a nice day!
Joce, CG Addict, Crown, and Nocebo- Thank you. When I was approached by the Cororan Gallery to do these drawings I had no prior experience with the medium. It has definitely been a very intense learning curve, but there definely days where i feel i truly learned something valuable. This was one of those days. Thanks for the encouragement.
Marco Bucci- To me, Sargent is unbeatable in a lot of respects. He had a deep understanding of pictorial elements, and very skilled brush handing. His greatest assets were probably his indefatigability and his fine taste. These are traits that come from a well honed vision, and ceaseless study.
Lovan Royen- I don't feel like i study nearly enough these days. I'd like to expand my taste. Any Suggestions? Who are you studying these days?
Parsakoira- Thank you!
Here are some bits and pieces from a project I've been working on.
Mood/color concepts mainly
Gah so much win in this sb my friend. If I had half the skill you did...
Keep it up man, love the character studies and that guy with the lions head. I dig it all.
