    nice sargent study man! the big dong indeed... the architecture studies are looking good too. it's one of my goals to be able to draft like one those industrial designs guys too. if you like that kinds of architectural concept art, check out Khang Le! http://khangle.squarespace.com/environments/

    btw, isn't that atmosphere study from children of men, not district 9? i recognize it since that was one of my favorite shots from that movie.

    anyway keep up the good work!

    Thanks for the crit on my sketchbook! I really appreciate the feedback

    I'm really enjoying looking at these tower designs--they have a really fun, whimsical look to them. On the whole, your perspective and draftsmanship looking good.

    I did notice that on the second one you posted, you have a round tower, yet the lines of bricks go straight across in horizontal lines from bottom to top--it would convey the form better if the cross-contouring were rounded with the tower.

    ...I feel like I didn't do a great job of explaining that.

    (Also, I agree with you 100% about Feng Zhu. I don't know how he does it, but I wish I had his drafting skills.)

    Hi Eightball haha yeah - that is from Chilren of men I think I had just watched district 9 when I posted the pic an got em confused cuz its hard to keep all that stuff straight. Both = great movies. Thanks for the feedback I like Khang Le's work holy crap! I went to that link, very inspiring. Also saw your SB, you have some really nice stuff in there, youngster too..

    Hey Meps - thanks for coming back Ah yeah you did look at my tower sketches, I see what you say about the bricks, they aren't in perspective, I saw that too and tried to not make the same mistake in the later ones. I'll keep that in mind next time I do some more towers. You made sense with what you say, I understanded. Yeah, Feng Zhu is a crazy mofo, his brain must be light speed I bet.

    Another study of J.S.S oil painting. This one got a little mo time an I think I like it better. Wanna do a few more of these.

    Hey Wholewheat_keyboard I really like where you were going with this last one. Also loving the caricatures and the building concepts. I've enjoyed looking at it all and I hope you don't get too lazy as I'd love to see more.

    It's funny, when I paint, I never know what the result will be, even if I have a plan. This one came out very different than I intended.

    This week's chow - 'Keymaster' - I started on the second to last day unfortunately, so there's no way I'll finish it on time. I hope I am able to carry this one out to completion - I am gonna try to add in the background to this tomorrow and hopefully a little color before the finals are due, wish me luck!

    Man, your caricature-type stuff is pretty great. It's very sculptural, and shows a knowledge of facial structure that you're not carrying through to some of your less exaggerated work... your keymaster's face looks pretty flat, for example, in comparison to most of the heads in post 68. (The hairstyle lady's kind of flat as well.) The sword and the hand study are also pretty boss, nice and 3D.

    The head studies you were doing before the 6 month gap also have some really nice things going for them - lovely colours - but their facial features, eyes especially are migrating around a bit. It helps to stop every once in a while and check your guidelines, make sure everything's still all lined up. =)

    Your latest study is fantastic, love the style. Keep it up! Regular posting! =D

    Hi kevin_ Thanks! I agree with you about planning, I need to do it more, a lot of the time my arts turn out different than what I originally had in my head.

    Revidescent - Thank you for writing such thoughtful feedback !! Glad you enjoyed the caricatures, they are my favorite thing to make Yes haha the eyes sometimes take a life of their own and try to wander off, I notice that more now you mention it. I will have to tie them down more rigidly. And the rest of the face too lol. Anyway thank you for writing a nice comment like that, I will take it to heart!



    Another one of these, I will try to practice other things soon.. maybe

    Trying to find a panting technique I like best. This one took much less time that the one of Patrice. I'd like to try and refine this technique a bit.

    Some sketches I did first. I really liked the middle one, maybe too undignified tho.

    ....

    Your caricatures are really cool. You execute them quite well.

    I love that movie/scene study in post 74; also very well executed.

    You mentioned that you struggle with hair earlier. I am no expert at all, but I do remember hearing that one should control the hair with large groups/masses of shapes, and then you control the direction/volume of the hair with some well placed highlights.

    Just a thought. Keep up the hard work!

    hey thanks for stopping by, I agree with your crits entirely

    For a sketchbook thats been on for 4 years I'd say theres a great deal of progress that is visible a lot in the leaps between posts and pages. Unlike me you've got a very good hand at rendering things. Though I think the foundations of everything (such as the Keymaster CHOW entry) could really use more attention

    Nice Caricatures in the latest post. You should do some more, seems like you've got a good handle of it.

    Although for the sake of learning, realism is probably the better route. Still though you're developing a good stylised approach to it all. Keep goin

    Looking fine!!!! Man, when I saw the nice thumbnail and the result on 3d from post #6 I was like wtf! real nice desing there, and if I were to pick my favorite out for now it would be the movie study from #76 ( A Serious Man), fine as wine! xD

    Really man, you can tell the obvious progress in both painting and drawing, and the caricatures are quite nice , better than the "realistic" kind of protraits I'd say. Maybe it's because you feel safer while doing those? Maybe not but if it's the case just try that out on realistic , it might work for you. I say this cause I had (lol still have it) that same issue and when you just relax about the structure a bit it kinda comes out better.

    Real promissing stuff man, gonna subscribe cause I see stars in your future man! keep up the nice work. Cheers!

    Aww people wrote me nice things!

    Syle - Thanks for the feedback. I think you are right about painting hair, I always always have a hard time with it both drawing and painting - and I think it is because I don't treat hair as "masses" but see the individual hairs and that is a mistake, also I think you're right about how highlights are very important with hair too. I tried to apply that a bit with my newest painting, still have room for improvement tho.

    Little-maiden Thanks Many people have mentioned foundation problem, I agree I need to work there, thanks for sharing your eyes Interesting pt about realism, I do get more excited by "style" over accuracy, which could be to my detriment, hopefully I can do both - haha!

    Suira Thanks for stopping by my sketchbook palace.

    Cool, many people like #74, I don't know what I did, but I am gonna try to do it some more! You said so many nice things, my head is inflated, haha I'm awesome! Lol - I wish!

    Art feels like pulling teeth, but if I pull all the rotten ones I will have only good ones ahead of me

    I do have short attention span, painting realistic is very difficult for me, one day..

    You liked the 3d one I used to do 3d a lot, I learned 3d in school and used to make models. I stopped though mainly because I can't stand unwrapping models, and my software is out of date.
    Thank you very much for your thoughtful and very nice post! Hi Five

    Abraham Linc. was made to BE a caricature. I could draw him forever and not get enough lol. Too bad there aren't more photo's of him. Well, here is a second one of father Abe.

    I did another one of Patrice O.
    Although I think I took it too far
    Since I don't see him anymore



    Something that dries me crazy is the whole idea that
    "less is more"

    cuz I was looking at these color studies
    and I think I liked them better
    than the final

    and I'm not sure the one I picked
    was the best one to paint

    oh gob
    whatever..

    That exaggerated tooth gap is pretty funny. Overall I like the sense of style in these updates, giving off a comical but malicious feel. I see you've been eating your oatmeal, whole wheat.

    Keep it up man.

    More awesomeness ;3 Good studies and cool cartoony characters. Hope virus issue on concept art will be fixed soon. So I'll be able to follow your work on more regular basis. Unless you have a blog or something?
