    Nice action-packed pose in the second one. In the Tom Waits picture, I think the blurry clouds at the top are distracting, and I think you ought to brighten the meat husks so we can see them better. They're hard to see at first.

    suupaboo- Thanks, I appreciated it!
    knoxie- Thanks! I'm having a blast so far, as I'm sure you are too. It's awesome hanging with pros every day.
    eminkey2003- Thanks mang! I think you're right about the meat... I was sorta shooting for a "second read" thing there. I kinda want the viewer to see Tom and realize the strangeness of the surroundings before placing exactly what/where those surroundings are... but if that idea is just not working, or seems off, please by all means let me know! I'm here to make good art, not build an ego! p.s. you are 110% right about the smoke. I'm going to try to render some accurate smoke and then if it still doesn't work, exercise my cropping shears!

    I only have two measly things for tonight: A rough thumbnail/value study for a picture I'm working on and an ink drawing. The ink drawing is a perfect example of how a drawing can go awry if you don't get your foundational shapes right. :/ I need to kick it into high gear if I want a portfolio that'll get me into TAD. ... ...

    Some things: I really like the different kinds of shading you used on the skull (kinda stippling plus cross-hatching plus washes), and I think the perspective is wacky on that desk in scabman's background. It's a moving composition to me though!

    By the way, the meat actually did surprise me once I saw it, so if that's what you're going for, that's fine by me.

    Thanks mang, I think the skull turned out alright, even though it's distorted.

    I made some progress on the Doctor Scab illo and floundered like a fucking epileptic fish on coloring Tom...which I won't show you just yet because the color is embarrassingly bad. So, this:

    The modeling looks great so far, and I love the knowledge shown in the clothes and proportions. Is that from a reference? I noticed that the perspective of the desk doesn't match the angle of the chair's arms.

    Knarf- I will! ...eventually
    eminkey2003- You're always astute, Nick! I totally referenced the suit (it's from a photo of me all gussied up) and haven't touched the desk since the thumbnail...I'll make sure to hit is with some perspectivization.
    Reymus- I don't have any casts at the moment...would you take a still life for now?

    Tonight's dump includes a choice selection of shitty figure drawings, some Egon Schiele knock-offs, first stabs at story boards and a progress shot on my still life. More soon, portfolio time kicks into high gear Thursday when my GF goes out of town for the weekend.

    Looking good Andy, looking good. Your colors look crisper, and your studies are looking nice with more structure to them.

    DUUUUDE!!!! Dr Scab is a sweeeeeeeeet concept. You gotta polish that bad boy up!

    I'm in Australia, so I doubt I'll be able to make it to the states for a POD... although it could be a nice treat. I'll start saving my pennies and hit the streets to do some speed caricatures. It'd be sweet to come hang with you guys and actually meet y'all in person. I'm loving the content this week with the entertainment based skills.

    Catch ya soon Brinkman!

    Thanks mangs! Too bad you're on the other side of the world Knoxie.

    So I've been doing some cleaning up and revamping of older work in order to put them in my portfolio. I'm not going to share it all just yet, but I'm happy with how this one came out. It's more graphic and less painterly than what I've been doing recently and it was a lot of fun to jump into an old style. It's like putting on an old pair of jeans or something.

    This went through some pretty substantial changes tonight. (See what I mean?)

    Yo dudes and ladies, I'm up late tonight cramming on portfolio works. Here's a sneak peak at a mostly-finished new illo call The Deep End. Check back soon, cause Sunday night is my deadline for the community scholarship thread and I'll post my portfolio here when I get it done.


    Thanks for stopping in daryy, I appreciate your input!

    I really like the colors and weird variation in post 314. Creative stuff! In 310, I don't know if those poses are referenced, but they have some nice life in them. It'd be great to see more of that in your work from imagination. Looks like that's what you're doing in the cement shoes picture.

    Going strong Brinkman, with that Deep End piece, the values are a little too far apart, to me at least, with that much bright daylight coming into the water, we should see further into the water, but still murky. And to add to the effect of the character sinking (if you weren't going to already) make sure to include bubbles rising from his face (him screaming, yelling etc), and clothing (air trapped in cloth) as well as staggering that money a bit more in the water.

    Here's yet another chunk of my in-progress portfolio. It's called Tools of the Trade. It's a self portrait I'm playing around with how rendered objects interact with flat shapes and generally trying to sprinkle a bit more of my graphic design sensibility into my painting.

    Jesus Food- Thanks dude! OMG, I didn't even make the Jason Schwartzman connection until you said that! I love it, he's totally JS now if anyone ever asks about it. I'll give them some high-minded art-speak about how Schwartzman's understated screen presence is akin to the subdued, yet deadly kung-fu mastery of a Shao Lin monk...or something

    eminkey2003- Thanks Nick! You're right (I swear I say that to you every day! ), I've been really striving to find more movement in the lines of my figures from imagination lately. The figures in 310 are mostly referenced, but some are from the old noggin. I had an epiphany looking at Schiele last week; he uses distortions of the form and where limbs meet to create some amazing negative space shapes that help the composition of the picture immeasurably. I think it's this exact thing that makes his drawing more than just figures floating in the void. So in short, I guess I've been thinking about stronger design in my figures. LOL, how's that for a long-winded response!?!

    Reymus- Those are some great suggestions Reymus, thanks!!! You're probably right about the visibility, but from the reference I gathered, it was shocking how quick the fall-off of light under water is. Regardless, you're right the light on the surface needs to be addressed. I think I may scale it down to make him appear to be deeper under water. I'd like to keep the transition from light to dark mostly the same. I placed the diagonal line of the edge of darkness where I did for compositional strength and to lead the eye to the figure. I do have a bubbles layer, but I totally forgot to turn it on before exporting!!!

    I love that guy's expression. You can hear his crazy snickering in your head when you see it. I think pictures that get that kind of beyond-visual response have a natural appeal. Sooooo....in short, great picture!!

    But I think it needs to be cropped, something like this:

    Latest piece strikes a nice balance of lineart and realistic rendering for the face. Good luck with your folio!

    I've been drawing and painting this whole week since Discovery ended, but not as much as I would have liked... you know the whole real world thing. I had to do all kinds of errands and social engagements I put off for the duration of Discovery. I'm back and in full force now! Big dump below...some of these are a bit old and never found their way online before for whatever reason, some are new.
