super sweeet quality of art... and pose #122 just BLEW me AWAY!, gonna look through the rest of the book, and ill be back tomorrow to comment more!
Awesome stuff Skoda, The diversity you are going for is great. Now you're making me have to go dust off the cobwebs on all my traditional materials!
I like sketch book. But i like yours a lot more.
heck i would swap my cheque book for your sketch book.
Still loving the work. I think if you want to, I can definitely see you becoming a comic book artist. That said, keep the sketchbook painting coming!
The combination of seeing your Swamp Thing painting along with you mentioning that you were trying acrylics leads me to make this suggestion:
If you haven't look into Basil Gogos yet, I think you'd like him. He worked mostly in acrylic on illo board and masterfully used a ton of bright colors in his work.
p.s. Thanks for coming by my book, means a lot to me!
BRINKMAN!: I looked up Basil Gogos and he's awesome! Thanks for pointing me his way. His color and lighting is defiantly really neat. By the way, I'm still dying to know how the new shoes turned out.
Wasker: Thanks! I'm still a bit insecure about by comics stuff so that means a lot.
Glassjaw: Thanks! Like I just told Wasker, that means a lot to me.
The Gurch: You got a deal! I only ask that you sign all the blank checks and in exchange, I'll sign every page in my sketch book.
jMarkus: Thanks! That was really fun and the stewardess was like "Can I get you an extra soda!" I was actually inspired by James Jean's awesome airport drawings (His are a lot better than mine).

I saw you flew to portland. I lived there my whole life growing up. I had a question about mixing for large areas of dense color. How do you do that? :> thanks
SketchBook Chris Yoakum?
bakatron: It's a deal!
curry23: Thanks! Your stuff is really nice.
MonkeYoakum: Cool! Portland is really neat. I had never been there before and I can't wait to go back. As far as mixing water colors go, (and I know this sounds overly simple) I try to use a bigger brush. That way I can load it up with more color and more water and mix more paint. However, I think the more important thing is to not worry about matching the color exactly. Try mixing small batches and let them run together on the paper. I like to work fast and I really like the way different colors will run together, making new colors that I would not have come up with otherwise. I'm also trying to avoid large areas of flat color because that hardly ever happens in the real world. I hope that answers your question.
These are from a pretty old book of mine. I was thumbing through it this morning and I thought the Homer Simpson stuff was pretty funny. I guess I was trying to do a more realistic version. It's some serious nerd shit.
Great sketchbook. You know Chris Ware's work?
Yeah. My sketch books used to be page after page of unfinished half heads. I kind of looked at sketch books as a way to save doodles. Then I picked up the Acme Novelty Date Book! That guy is a genius. I used to look at every freaking day. It totally changed the way that I approach my sketch books. I spend more time trying to get a finished pieces in my books now. And trying to focus ideas into something tangible. I owe that guy a lot.
