loving that last wip and it's even more because it's done with acrylics o.o
finish up those wips they're starting great!
here is a shot of the final, I'll post a higher resolution once my SD card stops acting up.
I bought a W & N Cotsman watercolor set!
The first painting was done from life, the second is a study of a sargent watercolor.
testing? my thread disappeared?
I've started working on this again. any crits thus far?
It's looking really good!
I like how you lead the eye with the light, and the warm colors on his face make it the focus of the piece.
kind of embarrassing now, but here is an old self portrait and a sargent Mastercopy.
Thanks for looking, I really do appreciate it
Voodoo- this is exactly the effect i was hoping for, thank you. I'm still working out the pose as you can see.

Finally learning ZBrush. Still a work in progress. Thanks for looking!
Some recent stuff, just to prove I'm still alive. I finally got my new laptop so i should be updating ... frequently
First three are my usual chalk drawings for the Corcoran Museum of art.
The fourth is a study from the movie Chinatown.
The last one is a plein air study of Applebee's done in my new home, Alhambra, California.
trying to learn to paint clouds
here is a piece I've been working up, still needs quite a bit of work, but i like where it's going.
crits welcome as always.
Wow great works man! Did you really move down here to Cali? is that the applebees on Main St next to the theatre? My college is in Alhambra, right down the street from there!! If your ever free i would love to talk to you about doing a demo for our art club on campus. Take care man. keep up the great work.
Thanks alot guys.
This is the Applebee's on main street, I painted it from Cha For Tea.
I'd definitely be down to meet you and your art club, not sure how much good a demo from me would do, but yeah I'm down for that too. feel free to email me or AIM me.
what to say else after seeing this sketchbook? there is something you can't do?
just amazing :o
And now we have a fake book cover, now all we need is an author, a publisher and an audience?
Thanks for the reply I've been doing these drawings for about 3 years at the Corcoran museum of art. I actually have some progress steps That I'll link a little later if you like.
In the meantime here are some studies for my next painting.
Whoa, those snails are really well done. Ace!
